Re: Front Paper Jam

I'm not 100% sure that this will work. I have a 3N, when we first got it I had the same problem. After clearing the jam - You have to open the top portion of the printer. Even if the jam is no where around that area... the printer won't reset itself until you lift that top piece. I even tried to turn it off, thinking it would didn't.

I know the 4g is much newer then mine...but being it's the same company.. this problem might be fixed the same way.

Good Luck.

Xante 3G - indicates 'print' then constant 'front paper jam' (any size)

That is cause the paper feeder is not working properly. It could cause the roller that feed the paper wear out or a bad tray release selenoid

Xante accel-a-writer 4g for mac OSX 10.6

I haven't checked in a while. Xante told me when I called them that they were not planning to make updates past the current version of the 4G OS X drivers, as the machine was no longer in production. They said the driver should perform adequately on current versions of OS X even though it was not initially designed for them (as they did not exist when the driver was created).
I found this to be untrue in my case. The drivers did not allow me to print consistently from 10.5.8 on an Intel Mac Pro.
My solution was to activate the print server on an Xserve running the Tiger server version of OS X, install the Xante driver there (since it was designed to run on that version of the OS), and now my newer macs can use the printer without issue.

Wrinkling Laser Paper

Sounds like something is either wrong with the rollers, something is stuck in there or you are using the wrong type of paper.

I suggest you take a peek inside there and see if there is anything noticeably wrong inside. If not then look up what type of paper it needs.

Front paper jam

Always try to remove a paper jam without tearing the paper.
If torn, make sure no scraps of it are missing.
Lokk for any tiny scraps, esp stuck on paper path sensor.

Xante 1200, paper jam front. Red light is blinking without a paper jam.

PROBLEM: Paper Jam. XANTE 1200, Tabloid size, B&W, Printer —Red light blinking fast indicating paper jam upfront. If you checked everything, trays, ink cartridge etc., and see no paper jam anywhere, take the top cover off and look inside the (head) for the jammed paper! This printer is problem free. It has given us the best service for many years.

Fuser is bad...actually, the paper jam sensor is bad. can I use a fuser from a different printer

Yes, most likely they do. I don't believe there is much if anything that differentiates one toner from another other then the size of the roller and the shape of the cartridge. If these are the same and given that they use the same fuser, I would definitely try it.

Continuous Paper Jamming

I would refer you back to your technician. Xante printers are a more specialized product.
