I am trying to print double-sided copy on card stock

Side one prints, then retracts into the printer and jams. Regular paper works fine. It also prints single sided copy on card stock just fine. Is there a trick or should I give up and go to Staples?

HI there sounds like there is a blockage in the duplex area that is not holding any sensors down. Check the duplex area for torn paper, failing this it maybe a sensor problem which will then need a engineer.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

Duplex printing with card stock paper jams in back on Brother MFC-9840CDW


I would try manually inserting the paper for the back side. Most of the time it's best to wait a few minutes before trying the back side to give it time to cool so it will lie flat.

We are trying to print on a card stock ,110 lb. , 8.5x11 Paper keeps jamming. Will this printer work with card stock?


It will only work if the printer supports feed through from the back. If the paper has to go in the same side of the printer that it comes out it will jam.

I have an HP Photosmart A646 printer that I bought in the hopes of printing to 5x7 card stock. We have pre-printed card stock that we use for gift certificates and we need to be able to feed the card stock...


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Depending on the program you are using to print your gift certificates, try this-

1) Open the program and open the file you use for your gift certificate.
2) Click on 'Layout' then 'Page Set Up' (probably found in the top menu bar by the right side of, FILE.)
3) Select 'Landscape' and then select, 'Custom'.
4) Enter 5x7 for height and width.
5) Enter the information you need in the data field, (ie, name address, etc.)
6) Select, Print.
7) When the 'Print Manager' box opens, click on, 'Properties'.
8) Click on, 'Type' and choose, "Envelope'.
9) Click on, 'Size' and choose 5x7. - and click, OK.

Your printer should have a slide where the paper is inserted. Place one of the 5x7 cards in the slot just as you would an envelope and slide the slider until it is 'close' to the card but not directly against the card.

Click, 'Print'. The printer should recognize the card (due to its thickness) as an envelope and print it.

Regular paper keeps jamming, but card stock will print fine


Hello,

The card stock prints ok but not regular paper because your pickup roller and separation pad are worn down and need to be replaced. The card stock still picks up because it is much thicker than the paper so the roller can grab it better. You need to get a roller kit part # RK-1320. We carry them at: http://www.ccl-la.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=24_41_42&products_id=71 if you need to order the kit. We also offer full tech support after the sale.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Same problem : Paper Jam when is no paper... What to do, I need FAX !!!


Take a piece of stock card (I cut a piece of a manila folder to size) and put it in the feeder. Copy or print something and when the printer grabs the card stock, help it along by pushing it gently. You'll see that it prints. After that it will print on regular paper. Don't ask me why...

I am working on a IBM infoprint 1222 it runs single sided copies fine but it jams on the 2nd to 5th page of duplex copies. Replaced the rear exit door and duplex unit but the problem remains. Any help...


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

HP C4280 incorrect paper feed


Check your printer's capability.

Buy the card stock they recommend.

If all else fails, print on plain and take card stock to a copy shop and have them do it for you.

Walking there beats going nuts over stupid software or hardware problems
