Question about Samsung ML 1430 Laser Printer

Paper won't feed

I've had the printer for a few years now. Over the past couple of months, it has had a lot of trouble feeding the paper from the main paper tray--the printer makes a sound of trying to grasp the paper two times, but comes up empty. I've tried laser paper and lighter weight paper. Any ideas? Is it just time to get a new one?

    I checked out that blog and tried the solution...and it worked! I'll see how long it holds for, but for now it's working again. Thanks for the site!

I haven't tried this yet as I just found it today, but it seems to work for other people.

You could try cleaning the rubber feed roller with a slightly damp rag, or even having feed assy replaced but you are right probally better off replacing it.

The problem is the spring that is located below the lever right in front of the clear plastic roller has lost its spring. If you remove the spring and stretch it a bit it will resolve the problem.

Canon ip2600 won't feed paper


I fixed mine!! I cut a letter size paper in half lengthwise (so it was skinny and long). Held the printer on my lap with both top and bottom trays open. I noticed the white pegs and skinny black roller inside were turning when I turned it on, so I waited til they were spinning and slid the paper between them along the right side. (Kind of a reverse feed). Had to do it between the crazy ink returns. Yes, the paper crumpled a little, and I did it a couple of times with a couple of papers. Something gave, because after that it started feeding properly again!

WON'T FEED PAPER FROM TRAY


I have found in the past that these printers can have two things that cause them not to feed paper.

1. There is possibly small pieces of paper stuck in the paper feed mechanism. I would check inside the paper try and the rollers to make sure there is no paper stuck in there.

2. A lot of printers have problems with the rollers that feed paper going bad. Many times you can contact HP and they can replace them. Depending on the age of the printer it may cost something.

My printer canon i9100 is not feeding paper. I cleaned the paper feed rollers and didn't solve the problem. The rollers seem to be turning but the paper does not advance and it sounds like the head is...


I suggest you unplug the machine from power, remove all paper from the feed slots, lay out some news paper. Then turn the printer upside down, hold it over the news paper, and give it a couple of healthy whacks on the base. See what falls out. If lots of junk falls out, put it all back together and try a test print. If the paper still doesn't feed, you may need to clean the pick-up roller with a cloth damped with water, a drop of detergent and a few drops of alcohol.

Epson Stylus Photo R350 giving a paper jam error message


An Epson service man (he was VERY kind to suggest this) told me to use a weak detergent solution on the rollers, NOT alcohol as that will dry out the material the rollers are made of. Although the problem has recurred a couple of times, it's worth repeating when necessary. I actually activate the 'print' command so it tries to feed in paper, while I FIRMLY hold a piece of fine cotton cloth stretched over a thin plastic ruler, which I hold down where the paper feed grabs its paper. The printer has a couple of tries to feed paper, reports an error message (because there was no paper) and I activate it again, thus exposing the WHOLE of the feed wheel to the cleansing cloth! WORTH A TRY!

Can't print onto photo tray!


There should be a switch on the front to select the "paper feed". There should be an indicator laight to show which paper feed is active.
