The roller may be clogged and need to be pulled out and pushed back in. Upon doing so, you can do a restart. The more complex option would be to do a remove and reinstall of the printer and it's drivers. You would have to remove the printer completley physically and software wise on the computer under "Add Remove Programs". Once removed, and the computer is restarted, you can reinstall the software and then connect the printer. Make sure to pull out the printer roller to ensure there isnt any paper or accumilated dust blocking the roller from picking up the paper and it should work fine. If not, then you have a bad roller that may be damaged and missing a component.

Baring any damage to the load or eject trays, Check the back of the eject tray with a flash light by opening the top of your printer where you insert your cartridges. (make sure power is off first so that cartridges will not move over and be in the way.) . Next, check for any obstructions of paper, dirt, or foreign objects.

Next if there is nothing to be found, use a pencil eraser and a couple cue tips and rubbing alcohol to clean residue that builds up on the rollers where the paper feeds through. Screenshot

Close the top, make sure that the load tray is not damaged and is inserted properly. (You can remove the back 2 screws on the load tray and get access to the inside to check for any other obstructions and cleaning.)

Tip

Paper does not feed properly


I was sick of the dreaded please load paper message I pulled the printer apart cleaned every thing to no avail. There is a roller on the right hand side where you feed the paper in. A small raised section behind the roller is used to pinch the paper between it and the roller. When this wears the paper will not feed. TO FIX Push a small piece of plastic it must be slippery (I used a 2 cm * 6 cm off an old xray) behind the roller Then use sellotape to hold it in place. No more dreaded load paper messages

Epson stylus sx405 will not load paper


Inspect the rollers that take the paper in. If none of them appear out of place or damaged, it may be that they need cleaning. I've had some success cleaning printer rollers with methylated spirits, but any dust cleaner should work.

My Epson 1290 (some years old) doesn't grab paper, especially good inkjet paper) properly. It passes straight through, prints on the roller, and/or I get messages saying the paper isn't loaded properly or...


That could be from the rubber rollers not being able to grip the paper. They get polished or shiney over time with use and age. Then they slip or pull incorrectly and you get your problems. There are other things that can cause this but nothing worth fixing.

Fixing the rubber rollers is easy. You need some ispropyl rubbing alcohol and a paper towel. Make sure it is isopropyl type as this won;t attack other parts. Simpley wet the paper towel and wipe down the rubber rollers. You will see the rubber go from a dull shine to dull flat rubber. This takes off the buildup on the rubber and lets it grip again. Eventually the rubber will age harden and this trick won;t work but this can give you years more service.

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.

Hi My Dell Laser 1815 is having a paper jam problem each time it tries to load the paper from the tray.


The paper tray itself is probably missing a small peice. Look towards the front of the tray... there is a guide (about 2" wide) that, if you push down, it springs back and forth. My tray was missing a small peice of flat metal that popped off. The feed roller rests on this piece when the tray is loaded. If the piece is missing, then the roller is to close and the paper cannot make it through into the printer. Still looking for the part number....
