Re: paper

Eliminate issues one by one. I would first check down the back where it feeds in to see if a jam is there. Same for inside unit near rollers and carriage units. Jams can be really tiny. Use a torch, i do and it really helps.

The printer hardware should even this out when printing. You should also ensure the paper meets the automatic feeder requirements of the printer.
If printing is skewed, feeding multiple pages or jamming, please follow these instructions (use a regular letter size paper to test after doing the steps given below):
Please check to ensure there is nothing obstructing the paper feed mechanism down inside the printer where it is not easily seen. If there is nothing obvious, unplug the printer and remove the paper. Open the front cover and look above the steel rod. You should see a conveyor belt with rubber teeth on it, like a fan belt. Take the bottom part of that belt and move it gently to the left. The cartridges should come out with it. Make sure the cartridges can move fully from one side of the printer to the other. Check also the output rollers on the bottom of the printer for any blockage. If it is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot. Turn the printer off. Next take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the paper feed slot (The manual paper feed slot is preferred, but the automatic feed will do if there is no manual paper feed for this printer) until it comes completely through the printer to the back of the exit rollers. Move it up and down and slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate this may work it loose or you may have to feed the envelope through the front rollers and push your way backward (please be careful here).
Next, take a damp warm cloth and clean the rubber rollers in the automatic sheet feeder. Dust may be coating the rollers there and as they become less tacky, they cannot feed paper correctly.
Finally, turn the printer upside down and carefully shake it for 10 to 20 seconds to see if something falls out of the paper feed path. Then plug the printer back up, take your paper out and replace it with a fresh, small stack (about 5 pages) of paper. Quickly bend the stack in an 'S' shape a few times to separate pages. Make sure it is lined up on the right side of the paper feed and the paper guide on the left is snug on the left side of the paper. Then try to form feed again. Once its done restart the Printer and try printing and let me know what happens.
Good Luck!!!

Paper will not feed

Paper feeding problems can be related to the media (paper) condition,paper jams or paper quality or the printer.

1.Remove any jammed paper from the your printer.

2.Lift any covers and lids, and wipe the rollers with a soft, damp cloth. A light colored cloth will help you identify dirt that comes off the rollers.

3.Use fresh paper for your printer. Use dry, flat paper. Don't overfill the tray. Discard any paper that curls or is wrinkled.

My Dell AIO 924 printer will not feed paper.

1.Check inside the printer to see if you have the ink properly installed.
2.Make sure you don't you re-use papers that you have already used.
3.All papers have to be perfectly allined.
4.Check the connection wires between the computer and the printer.
5.Scan your computer with a security system to catch and eliminate viruses,tracking cookies etc.
If all else fails I don't know what to say

13.02.00 paper jam on tray 2. i have removed the tray and even the catridges but can't find any paper. I don't know where the sensor is as this may be the cause as well. Please need urgent...

Number 1 you failed to mention what kind of printer you have.
Number 2 when you print, does paper even feed into the printer?
When was the last time that you replaced the feed rollers?
Yes it is possible that a sensor is jammed. Before the 13.02 error,
did the printer actually have a paper jam? If yes, was there a piece of paper
missing from the jammed sheet or was it whole?

The photopaper tray goes in, but the printer feed cant grab the paper. it is the correct direction, so i don't know whats going on.

Sometimes the printer does not feed the paper because it is too thick. Try to check the GSM of the photo paper, it should be 180 or 235.

Paper will not feed crumbles on right side will not feed through

Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Grab a flashlight ang take a look into the feeder for any debris or foreign objects that could cause this problem. If none, unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, load some paper (don't overload). Try to print again. If problem continues, please don't hesitate to contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

URGENT .. really need help sir.. my Printer Canon MX328, don;t want to feeding the paper. i don't know why . and sometime if the printer can feeding, 80% gonna be jammed. please help !

From your description,it seems that other material present inside your printer and blocking the paper path. Sometimes,broken paper feeder indicates the same way. I recommend you to bring your printer to the nearest service center unless you are quit familiar with assembly and reassembly of this printer.

The printer wont load the paper in anymore it will grab it on the left side but not the right

Please help me here. What model printer are you using?

Does it have multiple paper trays?

More then likley, the paper feed rollers are either worn or contaminated with paper dust and are not letting the paper be grabbed and pulled from the tray properly.

It could also be the paper pick solenoid not mechanically pushing both sides of the spring loaded tray up into the paper feed roolers. Or in the case of a true paper tray, preventing both sides of the tray from lifting with the same force.

Printer feeds in 2 or 3 sheets of paper at a time and then jams

Dears eveenz,
It seems that paper feed roller of your printer is broken. This part is integrated in drive assy. You need to replace drive assy of the printer in order to feed the paper properly. I plan to discuss this topic at Inkjet Printer Forum since I cannot post image more than 150 kb here. Explanation with image will make you know more easily. Please send me your mail to so I can contact you as soon as I finish my post there.
Please rate me when you find this answer be useful for you
