Re: "out of paper" error

It is quite possible for objects such as pens, pencils, paperclips, and other small items to fall into the paper input tray causing paper jams to occur. Follow the below steps to try and clear any obstructions that may have fallen into the printer.
new_caution.jpg Caution: The next steps involve lifting the printer and turning it upside down. Only perform these steps if you are willing and able to do so.
Remove all paper from the input tray.

  1. Unplug the power brick from the back of the printer.

  2. Uplug the USB cable from the back of the printer.

  3. Lift the printer up and turn it upside down.

    new_caution.jpg Caution: Make sure that you are holding onto the scan bed to prevent it from falling open when the printer is turned upside down.
  4. Tilt the printer from side to side while it is upside down to see if any obstructions fall from the input tray.

Dell 922 saying there is a paper jam

First try this. Turn off the printer, remove all the cartridges, drum, open all the doors and remove all the trays. Now verify that there's no actual paper jam by exploring through the inside of the printer. You can use a blower to blow any dust or pieces of paper, etc.. from the printer. Now use the manual feed and put in thicker paper several times (push in and pull out). Again reinstall and reconnect every components and boot the printer. If the actual printer's paper sensor isn't broken or stuck or twisted, this will definitely clear the paper jam message on the printer.

If the problem persists, please download this small text file and follow the instructions (click here). Open the link, click "Download Now" button, wait for 20 seconds and again click "Download File Now" link and read the instructions and follow step by step.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My dell 922 printer say there is a paper jam but there is no paper stuck in the machine

check the full inside of the machine, even a small piece of paper in some of the spooler inside can cause the printer to malfunction.

Crooked feed, sometimes won't pull the paper sufficiently down and I get an "out of paper" error message

Make sure you inserting the paper not deep inside just insert and stop it when you feel any resistance .and try to print something. If it is print then well otherwise you have to show it service center.

Dell 922 print carrier stall error message. Also, error 1200.

hope it will work
Error code: 1200
This error code is commonly associated with the Dell 922 printer. Usually you might see the cartridge moving front and back and slamming itself against the printer. You need to tighten the strings located on the back of the printer and then it should work fine

Clean the carriage rail. This is the round chrome piece that the carriage assy that holds the cartridges rides on. Use a paper towel that is slightly moist.
Be sure to not force anything. Unplug the printer after you get the carts in the middle. Move them to one side and clean and then move them to the other and repeat.

Lift up the scanner to reveal the cartridge compartment; under the chrome rod on which the cartridges run there are two small gaps about 8cm apart. In the right one should sit the paper sensor which is a small black rod that hooks downwards; the problem I had was my sensor had bent up and out of the gap so all I had to do was bend it gently back into position using a small screwdriver.

Hope you get it to go.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

I have a Dell all in one 922 printer When I try

If your device is out of warranty, I'd suggest to clean the rollers again completely. What I mean is to remove the scanner lid and back cover, then clean all of the rubber rollers gently with alcohol and swabs.

Dell 922 All-in-one printer has message on printer saying head error

can you provide the error message, depending on the error and if you want to attempt to repair it yourself? Printers are like computers these days you can almost replace it for the repair cost, but if you will provide a error code we can see what we can do.
