Ink marks on printouts

I had a paper jam today and now the paper does not seem to be feeding through the printer properly (it seems a bit bunched up) and I am getting some nasty black ink marks on my printouts. Any advice would be gratefully received! Thank you

Will not feed paper and nothing prints when it does

Hmmm it seem complicated:) I presume paper feed intermittently however there is no print marked on the paper. Let me start resolving the paper feed problem assuming there is no other mechanical problem detected during POST (Power On Self Test): Most of the paper feed problem is caused by blockage on the paper tray you can turn the printer up-side-down to remove the objects such as staple wires, etc.. while printout problem is caused by ink cartridge problem clogging or blockage. The worst case is when the printer head cable is broken somewhere that triggers the firing of pin holes. Please managed to check whichever applicable:) Gooduck!

My AIO 940 printer does not pull paper properly to print, it does not pull one side of the plain paper and creates a paper jam.

I was having the paper pull to the right. I opened the cover to expose the ink carriages. I found sticky black ink on the platform under the ink. I used a towel and rubbing alcohol to clean off any excess ink. I believe that the sticky ink buildup on the left side did not allow the paper to feed properly. All seems to be well. Hope this helps.

Says a front paper jam but no paper jammed any where

Your paper feder belt has ink on it and will not feed the paper. Remove the rubber belt and clean it good and clean and use compressed air on the printer tray area. If this does not work open the front feeder tray and set your computer to print from it. After about 500 copys it will normally have c leaned itself and be ready to feed from the main roller.

OK, this is going to take a bit of nerve but it has worked every time (dozens) I have seen this problem. Switch off the printer and unplug, make sure the ink carriage is parked. Get a stiff piece of A4 card such as the backing from an A4 notepad. Place the card in the paper feed and push through quite firmly for the first half inch then open the scanner unit and watch the rollers inside the printer as you push it further. It should push out anything blocking the paper path. Push the card fully through in the direction of paper feed, never try to pull paper jams or anything else out backwards if it can at all be helped.

Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Mis-feeds paper and thinks it has paper jam

the gears of the printer r worn out and they have hanve lost their allignment settings so this problem.either replace the gears.or the other not insert the paper in the tray ,keep it little bit outside and hold the end of the paper in hand when you will give a printout the printer will make a noise of picking the paper at that time just push the paper inside and then it will print properly.

Paper jam

I had this problem the other day. I turned out that I had a small bit of polystyrene foam had got trapped just before the white plastic rollers you can see in front of the toner sponge where the cartridge head runs when you lift the lid to change ink.

I discovered it by noting that on power-up these rollers turn as if to feed paper back into the paper feeder (i.e. "backwards through the printer"), so I tried to see if I could get a sheet to feed backwards and noticed something was trying to stop the right-hand side of the paper feeding in. Soon after I noticed the bit of foam through the right-hand side slot in the white plastic section above the roller. A quick removal with small tweezers et viola!
