WOW. Sound like the automatic feeder needs to be checked and cleaned. How old is the printer?

HP deskjet 1056 won't feed paper

I just fixed mine. The paper would feed part way then jam and twist a little off center. When I pulled the paper out there was a crinkle on the bottom edge, left side, about 2 or 3 inches in. I did some looking with the scanner removed a saw a plastic tab like the ones that hold and feed 1 sheet at at time. This tab was located inside a little "box-like" thing on the underside of the printer. I turned the printer over. There are several openings/ holes in the 'box'. You can take a pencil or similar object and slide a flat 'tab' that is inside the 'box'. You will see a small spring in one of the holes. Slide the flat tab toward the spring until it locks in place. My printer now works fine. To me the 'box' mechanism looks suspiciously identical to an analog counter wheel. If it is, then it is counting the pages and then engaging the tab to cause a paper jam so you will buy a new printer. Similar things happen electronically to my HP psc 1210 & my Officejet 5610. They will stop scanning or printing, give "no cartridge" error codes, etc... I unplug them for a few weeks and it's like they are new again. PS, if the printer can't talk to HP it will work longer.

Lexmark Pro901 When scanning from document feed the machine seems to scan only a part of the page whilst cutting out the information at the bottom of the page.

Make sure to set the correct paper size when scanning from the ADF. If you're scanning a legal size document, set the paper size to legal.

If it doesn't work, try to reset the printer back to its factory settings:

1 From the home screen, touch Setup (wrench icon), and then touch Use Factory Defaults.
2 Touch Yes.
3 When prompted to set the initial settings of your printer, make your selections using the touch screen.

Check that the cable that comes out of the back of the feeder is plugged in completely. If not, turn off the machine and unplug the copier before plugging the adf connector in, then turn machine back on.

If that is not the problem, the sensor flag or sensor may be out of place. Where the paper goes in, there should be a black plastic flag hanging down that the paper will move when you insert it, If you can see it and it seems to move properly, then the sensor may be out of place or the sensor/feed medchanism is out of place and it is a little tricky to explain here. The sensor is above the flag, but under a metal plate and you may mess it up worse by trying to take it apart.

My printer is saying 'no paper feed' when there is clearly paper. The printer is not gripping the paper so it could print.

THe first thing to do would be to clean the pick up roller/s. If you can not reach them by hand, use a sheet of fine sand paper. put the sand paper in the paper tray so the gritty side will contact the feed roller. Then hold the paper in place while exicuting a test print. You wil get a jam, or papaer empty indicator. now do it again, and then one more time. Now remove the sand paper and use a damp thin cloth. make sure this is secured and will not be pulled into the machine. Now one more time run a test page. Now you should be good to go. If this did not solve the feed problem your feed rollers need to be replaced, or you have a paper present sensor problem. This could take some disassembly so let's try the easy stuff first.

HP OJ 6310 - scan/fax feeder won't pull through paper for scan/fax. Have tried cleaning rollers to no avail. Can you help??

There are two types of jams.
Physical, A physical obstruction is preventing the paper from gettin through.

Timing, the paper does not reach a given piont in a given period of time.

Physical jams can be the easier of the two, look for anything out of place, check the lead edge of the paper, is it dented or damaged? if so line up the damage with the feeder open and see if you can locate the problem, it does not need to be a foriegn object, it could be a guide mylar that is damaged or out of place.

Timing are are where the original does not show any signs of damage, the machine just stops.
This can be caused by feed tires, feed motor or clutch, or sensors,
Check the condition of the rollers, rollers generally have a rippled surface, if the rollers are bald and or have become concave. they are worn out.
Clean the rollers with a rubber cleaner or alcohol, clean the paper path with alcohol, check for sticky areas, adhesives from post its or signature flags.
Clean the scan glass with a good glass cleaner.

Blow out sensors with compressed air (Computer Duster), if sensors have an actuator arm, ensure the arm is in place and moves freely.

Give this a try.
Hope it is of some help.

Paper feed jams

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

Misfeed when scanning documents

What you want to try it take a blank paper and on the middle of the page on front put a small ammount of rubbing alcohol on it, then enter the paper into the scanner and hold it so you jam it as it feeds. Then look at the area you placed the alcohol for the presence of some dirt, a blackish smear will normally appear on the paper, Do that 4 or 5 times and that will clean the wheels well. If it helps, then most likely you have just textured the rollers for a short period of time and they should be replaced. But the reason why you want to try that is to be sure the problem is slipping by the roller texture and not the roller drives, ( a clutch or motor). But since it sounds like you give your scanner a workout, the rollers are most likely the problem. Replace all the feed rollers and also look for a pad that presses against the feed roller. Depending on the type of scanner there will be either one roller that barely moves or a rubber pad that is called a skid or ****** pad, what they do is limit or ****** the feed of multiple sheets of paper. I would recommend replacing that , pad or stationary roller, it is important in feeding.
