Trouble Loading Paper

My Dell 924 printer will not load paper correctly. You have to put one sheet in at a time, and even then it's a gamble if it will print out or not. Help, I'm taking an online class and I need to be able to print out lecture notes and handouts. I can't afford another printer. Please help. Thanks, Nicole Radman

Re: Trouble Loading Paper

Make sure the printer is not jammed. Mine was jammed last week and I couldnt tell because it was a very small piece of paper. Once I figured that out everything worked fine.

My printer says load paper then press start, I have paper in there and it wont print.

Dont know what you have already tried but first off verify that you are loading paper to the correct tray. Now this tray is going to have a switch located toward the feeder that tells the printer paper is loaded make sure the paper is back far enough but not to the point where you are forcing the paper into the feeder. If all this still doesnt work try reseting the printer and printing a test page. Hope this helps.

Paper not feeding properly

Follow these steps to reload paper:

  1. Remove the paper and make sure it's not curled or wrinkled.

  2. Fan the stack to make sure the sheets are separated.

  3. Open the paper support and pull up the extension.

  4. Extend the output tray.


  5. Flip the feeder guard forward. Squeeze the edge guide and slide it left.


  6. Insert paper, printable side up and short edge first, against the right side and beneath the tab.


    You can load up to 100 sheets of 20 lb plain paper or up to 20 sheets of photo paper.

  7. Slide the edge guide to the edge of the paper, but not too tightly.


    Follow these guidelines when loading paper:

    • Do not load paper above the arrow on the edge guide.

    • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.

    • If you're printing on both sides of the paper, try loading fewer sheets.

    • If it's wrinkled when it ejects, the paper may be damp or too thin.

    • Do not load paper with holes punched in it for insertion in a binder.

    • Load the printable side face-up. It's often brighter or whiter than the other side.

    • Load letterhead or preprinted paper top edge first.

    • If you experience paper feeding problems, try loading fewer sheets.

    • If you're using special paper, check the package for special loading instructions.
Follow these steps to reload paper in the Automatic Document Feeder:

  1. Remove the paper and make sure it's not curled or wrinkled.

  2. Tap the originals on a flat surface to even the edges.

  3. Move the edge guides outward.


  4. Insert the originals face-up. You can load up to 30 letter-size sheets at a time. If you load legal-size sheets, insert only 10 sheets at a time. Make sure the originals are not creased or folded and do not have tape, staples, or other materials that could obstruct the feeder.


  5. Slide the edge guides against the originals.

Epson Stylus photo 340 r printer paper jam when trying to print

first, make sure you the paper correctly to avoid paper jam.
Single Sheets 1. Open the paper support and raise the extension. 2. Place your paper short edge first against the right edge of the feeder, under the tab, with the printable (whiter or glossier) side up. If you are loading multiple sheets, fan the stack of paper before loading it to prevent paper jams. Note: Don’t load paper above the arrow mark inside the left edge guide. Some special papers can be loaded only one sheet at a time. Slide the left edge guide against the paper. Make sure it is snug, but not so tight that the paper is bent. (For letter- or A4-size paper, you may not need to move the edge guide over.) paper.4.2.1.jpg 4. Open the output tray and pull out the extension. You should also follow these guidelines:Always load the short edge first, even when you’re printing landscape-oriented pictures. • When using special papers, check the paper package for additional instructions. Some papers require using a support sheet included in the package. Note: Always keep unused paper in the original package and store it flat to prevent curling.
if you loaded the paper, it jammed again, remove the paper and tried to print, still the same, its a hardware issue, alraedy, the printers roller is broken

Clean the rollers down where the paper sets in the printer. Do not use cheap generic matte coated paper. Some generic matte coated paper will leave a film on your rollers and cause them to not grip the paper.
