SOURCE: paper feed problem.

Feed the paper manually into the printer:
Place a sheet of plain A4 paper in the paper feed tray.
Move the paper support on the left-hand side to the left end of the paper.
Press the paper feed button.
If the paper does not feed, continue with step 2.

Check for any obstructions in the paper feed path:
Disconnect the cables from the back of the printer.
Open the front of the printer and check for anything that may be blocking the paper path.
Close the front lid and remove any paper from the paper feed tray.
Holding the printer in both hands, turn it upside down to see if anything falls out of the paper feed area. (Sometimes objects such as pens, paper clips and so on can fall into the paper feed area and cause blockages.)

SOURCE: Paper not feeding in the

After so much paper goes thru the rollers they pick up dust and dont stick. Some models you can unplug and then use a q tip soaked in alcohol to clean the roller. Others require you to take them apart to clean. If you have to take it in to get fixed then check out the new ones from a computer store. Sometimes its cheaper to get a new printer than go get yours repaired or cleaned. If you do decide to have it done look really close when they get done and ensure the rollers were cleaned with alcohol. Otherwise they mihgt still have a oil coating on then and that causes them to slip also, especially on photo paper. They will argue in some places that the alcohol will dry out the rubber and it will age and crack. Altho this is true I have yet to see a dry, aged or cracked pickup roller, even 15 years in the business. I think thats because it takes longer to age and crack a rubber roller than it does to just wear out the machine. Jonathon

SOURCE: Photo Paper Feed

hi,

the issue that you have might need to change some settings from the printing properties. WHen you hit on PRINT, a box will open, right? look on the top right of that box, you will see "PROPERTIES" or "Preferences" just click on it, then another box will open. Click on Printing Shortcuts tab, try to review the settings. And if you want to print using the main tray, it should set it to Automatic select or Main tray. And make sure that it sets to General Printing. But if youre going to print a photo, you will have options there to choose what type of paper when you click on that, the settings on the paper size, paper source, etc. will change also. For paper source, make sure that it sets to Photo Tray.

If you will be able to open printing preferences, all options are there, you just need to read and choose which settings you want to use.

Thank you so much.

SOURCE: Paper won't load. Media loaded incorrectly.

Okay.. 1st off I'm probably going to the jumped on for this... But.. I fix and/or make them work printers, computers and all sorts of electronic gear. For a living... Yes .. the manufacturer will tell you not to use alcohol to clean the rollers. but it does work. Windex (ammonia) will clean the heads at times. I also use Scotch brite pads to clean the pickup rollers. We get them in about 8x10 inch pads.
I will spay some alcohol on the end where the pick up roller is. Place the pad in normal paper tray. Most printers have a cam shaped one on the right, left or in the middle. That gets the paper moving. The pad is way to thick to actually move and will cause a jam indication on the printer. But what happens is the roller will slip on the pad and clean itself. Pretend you cleared the jam a couple of times and the printer will try to pick up the 'paper' and jam again. A couple of these and the pick up roller (cam shaped) will usually be good to go. The other option (the best) is to buy a new pickup roller for the printer. But cleaning will work for the short term. What happens on most printers is the roller gets very smooth from normal use and then won't pick up the paper for the rest of the trip through the printer. I have used a piece of fine grade sand paper, but you have to hold it so it won't go through the printer and it makes a gritty mess... Once I orderd a 'printer cleaner' from HP and all it was, was a couple of pieces of scotch brite glued to a fancy holder to match the spacing of the rollers. That's when I started using sheets of the stuff. Just pretend they are a piece of printer paper. In the worst case I have used belt dressing and then alcohol to clean most of it off. Alcohol has a tendency to soften the rubber on the pickup roller. That's why the company says don't use it. But you can by rubber rejuvenator that is mainly alcohol.. Go figure.........

Rollers could be worn out. Also could be a problem with the paper sensor. Not sure what type of sensor this printer uses. Some just use a pressure switch, others use a light sensor.

My Brother MFC 210C Printer, Copier, Scanner isn't feeding the paper.How do I fix this?


Use a water dampened cloth to clean the pickup roller. They get residue on them over time that causes them to not grip the surface of the paper when feeding.

Paper does not feed properly


I was sick of the dreaded please load paper message I pulled the printer apart cleaned every thing to no avail. There is a roller on the right hand side where you feed the paper in. A small raised section behind the roller is used to pinch the paper between it and the roller. When this wears the paper will not feed. TO FIX Push a small piece of plastic it must be slippery (I used a 2 cm * 6 cm off an old xray) behind the roller Then use sellotape to hold it in place. No more dreaded load paper messages

My HP printer is not feeding paper.


Here is the solution for your problem just go through the steps given below and you can fix it yourself.

1. Check to make sure your printer has paper in its paper tray. If your printer has paper, check to make sure that the tray is not overloaded. If you suspect your paper tray is overloaded, remove some paper from the tray and attempt to print again.

2. Use the same type of paper when stocking the tray with paper; do not mix different types of paper into a single stack. Mixing different brands and weights of paper in a single stack makes your printer more prone to paper feed problems. If you find that one particular type of paper causes consistent feed problems, switching to a different type or weight of paper may solve the problem.

3. Check to make sure the paper in the tray is whole. Torn and creased paper will cause problems with the printer.

4. Open your printer's rear access cover and inspect the paper feed rollers. Dusty or dirty rollers cannot grip the paper; clean them with a soft, damp cloth and water.

5. Count your printer's rollers. HP printers have six paper feed rollers; if your printer is missing rollers the paper will not feed correctly. Contact HP to replace the rollers and repair your printer.

Thanks.

Paper is loading crooked and causing a jam


Sounds like there is something that has fallen into the paper feed path. Shutdown printer, unplug power from back of printer, and remove paper. With a flashlight, inspect the area around the paper feed roller for any debris (one time I found a penny lodged on the left side of the roller) that might have fell inside path and for damage to rubber wheels. Ink can build up on rubber wheels causing the paper to misalign. This can be cleaned off with q-tips and 91% Isopropal Alcohol or Dilute. If debris is found and cleaned then reload paper into feed path, make sure paper guide tab is in position against paper source. Plug printer power back in, turn on printer and push the paper feed button. If that doesn't fix problem the only other solution is the replace the paper feed roller or buy another printer. Let me know if this fixes the problem or if you find another issue. Have a Nice Day!

My printer does not appear to be pulling paper through properly. The paper feeds, but the printing is starting imemdiately at the top of the sheet. Is this a spool problem adn can it be fixed?


Since your printer is more than 5 years old you can expect some wear on the pickup roller. A quick fix for your problem is to use alcohol and a toothbrush to scrub the gloss off of your primary pickup roller which is located in your paper feed drawer. These rollers tend to become glossy and smooth, which reduces your ability to feed paper into your printer.

My canon printer/copier does not feed paper in machine. makes all the sound but wont feed. help


1. Try cleaning the paper feed rollers

Instructions how to clean the paper feed rollers.
If the paper feed rollers become dirty, they may not be able to properly feed paper due to the feed roller's slippage.
If paper does not feed correctly, perform the following to clean the paper feed rollers:
  1. Open the Printers folder.

    - For Windows XP Home Edition : Click/Select 'Start,' 'Control Panel,' 'Printers and Other Hardware,' and 'Printers and Faxes.

    - For Windows XP Professional Edition : Click 'Start' and 'Printers and Faxes.'

    - For Windows Vista : Click 'Start,' 'Control Panel,' 'Hardware and Sound,' and 'Printers.'

    - For Windows 2000 : Click/Select 'Start,' and 'Settings,' then 'Printers.'
  2. Right-click the icon of the printer for paper feed roller cleaning, and select 'Properties' from the displayed list.
  3. Click the 'Maintenance' tab and click 'Roller Cleaning'.

    Remove all sheets of paper from the rear tray, then click 'OK'.
  4. Confirm the message, and click 'OK'.
    Note: Clicking 'OK' will activate the paper feed rollers 30 times. This activation will take about 90 seconds. Do not perform other operations until this operation has finished.
  5. Confirm the message, and click 'OK'.

    After the continuous paper feeding operations in step 5 have finished, load three sheets of plain paper and click 'OK'.


  6. Confirm the message, and click 'OK'.

    Note: “Feed roller cleaning is completed” message is displayed when the paper is fed and ejected.

    Click 'OK'.
Roller Cleaning is completed.

I print a publication so I print many copies within a few days. It says Paper Jam in tray area but I can see no paper, it makes a noise and never feeds the paper.


Some Laser printers require the paper to be loaded out of the **** on one side to work well. Flip your paper **** over and try loading the paper upside down. Sounds funny but may fix your issue. Also look at the type of paper you are using your printer may need a thicker or thinner paper (look at the manual). Clean the pickup rollers!

5300 won't load 8 1/2x 11 photo-weight paper.


''grabber'' roller out of work sometimes, you may try
1) there is a input paper sensor around roller, the roller out of runing if the sensor is not senitive enough or sensor switch dirty,
clean the sensor as you can find it,
2) Lighter-weight paper feeds and prints fine, which means this paper input sensor works ok, but you need to make sure they are same paper input sensor,.
3) the paper surface bright and the roller worn could be cause paper feed fail, you need clean the roller anyway. still not fixed, you need to adjust the roller pressure by increase the spring force.`

Paper does not feed completely properly.


1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

If the error still exists then its the problem with rollers it needs to be serviced..

Good luck..
