My hp J4680 won't feed envelopes, the envelopes goes part of the way in and then fails to print


Hi

The envelopes are standard in size hence do not use any odd sizes. And also do remember that you make the required alignment and also the feeding directions and positions. If you print in Landscape then the paper is too short for the printer to pick. Hence use Portrait so your printer can sense the presence of the envelope

  • printer paper kit
  1. Turn off the Kodak Printer Dock, if it is on.
  2. Pull the paper tray from the printer.
  3. Check the exposed paper slot for paper fragments and/or jammed sheets of paper in the slot. Use tweezers to remove any paper fragments from the paper slot.
  4. Fill a small bowl with one-half cup of cold water. Wear latex gloves to keep your hands from getting wet.
  5. Dip a lint-free cloth in the bowl of water. Wring out excess water.

Self cleaning and print test sheet


To print a test page, from ready press the go button. There isn't a cleaning page or drum cleaning cycle on Brother printers.

Brothers are notorious for having bad toner and drum issues. They are very finicky about paper quality. What happens is when a lower quality paper is used the higher paper dust and talc gets caught up in the charging brushes of the drum. Brother has no waste sections in their cartridges or drums so the built up junk stays right in the charging brushes and causes the drums to fail. On the toner cartridge side it re-uses it's waste toner adding it back (with the paper dust and talc) into the fresh toner supply area. Eventually the cartridge contaminates itself to the point of causing imaging problems.

Best recommendation after over 13 years fixing printers to you is to use GOOD paper at all times with Brother printers. Brands tend to fluctuate wildly in quality but the most stable brand to look for is a HP (Hewlett Packard) brand paper. They tend to keep the tightest control over paper with their name on it than others I've seen. HP "Office" paper is relatively inexpensive and will save you much more in the long run than buying cheap paper. STAY AWAY FROM STORE BRAND PAPERS OR XEROX 4200.

Hope that helps you.

Too Much Paper


2 possible solutions.
1 The paper itself. Check that the paper tray is not overfull. this can cause multiple sheets to feed through. Also make sure that you use good quality paper suitable for the particular type of printer. Always keep the paper dry Damp (not wet) paper will also cause the sort of problem you describe. another good reason for not keeping to much paper in the paper tray. Paper will keep better in the packet than in the tray. Always store the paper in the packet in a warm dry place. I keep mine near a radiator and away from the Air con.

2. The printer driver. Download the latest driver for your printer from the manufacturer and update the printer driver, via the control panel/printers. If you don't know how to do this you can simply uninstall the printer and then install it again using the new printer driver.

Good Luck

Hp deskjet d2360


Hi

Yes the HP Deskjet D2360 will print pics. If you want to print photo quality, make sure your ink cartridges are in good shape and obtain photo quality paper.

You can actually print pictures on almost all printer paper but if you want a good result, I would suggest you look online for inkjet photo A4 photo paper.

Paper can be obtained in a number of finishes. For example Glossy, Silk, Matt and so on. If you just want reasonable quality for a school project or something, then a good quality non photo paper may be good enough for you.

Paper also comes in different thickness or weights. This is determined by the paper's GSM. For example: 80gsm is normal photocopier paper. A good quality photo paper would be 140gsm or 160gsm. When looking for paper online you'll see the GSM shown. It really is your personal choice. There are heaps of suppliers on the internet. Amazon do a good range.

You can also set your printer for various levels of quality. A rule of thumb is, the bettter the quality, the more ink you will use.

If you want to find out more about your printer, visit http.www.hp.com then look for your particular model.

Hope this helps.

This can cause print-quality problems during printing. Cleaning the printer eliminates or reduces these problems. Clean the paper path and print-cartridge areas every time that the print cartridge is changed or whenever print-quality problems occur. As much as possible, keep the printer from dust and debris.

Cleaning the paper path and print-cartridge areasback to top of page Over time, particles of toner and paper accumulate inside the printer. This can cause print-quality problems during printing. Cleaning the printer eliminates or reduces these problems. Use the following steps to clean the paper path and print-cartridge areas: 1. Turn the printer off and unplug the power cord. 2. Open the top cover. Figure 1: Top cover opened example 3. Remove the print cartridge. Figure 2: Print cartridge removed example CAUTION: To prevent damage to the print cartridge, do not expose it to light for more than a few minutes.Be careful not to touch the transfer roller (the black, rubber roller located underneath the print cartridge). Skin oils on the roller can cause print-quality problems. 4. With a dry, lint-free cloth, wipe any residue from the paper path area and the print cartridge cavity. Make sure not to touch the transfer roller with fingers, as the oil can contaminate the roller, resulting in print quality defects. Figure 3: Paper path area and print cartridge cavity example 5. Reinstall the print cartridge and close the top cover. Figure 4: Print cartridge reinstalled example NOTE: If the print cartridge is difficult to reinstall, make sure that the registration plate has been flipped back down into position and that the print cartridge is pushed firmly in place. 6. Plug in the power cable and turn on the printer. Cleaning the fuserback to top of page Run the printer cleaning page to keep the fuser free of toner and paper particles that can sometimes accumulate. Accumulation of toner and particles can cause specks to appear on the front or back side of print jobs. To ensure optimum print quality, HP recommends using the cleaning page every time that the print cartridge is replaced or on an automatic pre-established interval. The cleaning procedure takes about 2.5 minutes to complete. A message (either CREATING CLEANING PAGE or CLEANING) appears on the printer control panel display while the cleaning is taking place. NOTE: Use plain paper to print the cleaning page. Please note that this is a two-step process. First print out the cleaning page using the following directions, then follow the directions on the cleaning page itself to reinsert it back into the printer to perform the cleaning. Use the following steps to run the cleaning page: 1. If the printer model includes a duplexer, open the rear output bin. 2. Press example(Select button) to open the menus. 3. Use example (Up button) or example (Down button) to scroll to CONFIGURE DEVICE, and then press example (Select button). 4. Use example (Up button) or example (Down button) to scroll to PRINT QUALITY, and then press example (Select button). 5. Use example (Up button) or example (Down button) to scroll to CREATE CLEANING PAGE, and then press example (Select button). 6. Perform the following to complete the cleaning process. 1. Remove all paper from Tray 1. 2. Use example (Up button) or example (Down button) to scroll to CONFIGURE DEVICE and then press example (Select button). 3. Use example (Up button) or example (Down button) to scroll to PRINT QUALITY and then press example (Select button). 4. Use example (Up button) or example (Down button) to scroll to PROCESS CLEANING PAGE and then press example (Select button). 5. Load the cleaning page created in step 5 above into Tray 1 with the print side down and the arrow towards the printer. 7. If the printer model includes a duplexer, close the rear output bin. Let me know if that helped. Good luck, Tim
