"Out of Paper" problem

My Panasonic KX-P2123 running under Win98 is continually giving me the message "out of paper" when there is plenty of paper in it. I have tried installing it as all sorts of different printers, using different drivers, and disabling the sensor on the printer itself. any suggestions?

Hi,
i,d suggest the paper sensor that you,ve disabled is suspect.
Alternatively, could be a cabling error.
Try a new printer cable, if this fails uninstall remove completely all software and printer, along with cabling. start computer/shutdown. re setup the whole printer as a new installation. if non of this works. Bin it and buy a new printer.
Finally if you,ve got standard windows 98. upgrade to 98se. might help.

Hello Landscapeman ,

You need to specify the paper type when the print dialog box appears. Heavy glossy paper needs to spend more time in the fuser so that the toner is fixed.

Have you checked the paper cartridges? If you have supplied the paper cartridges with paper but the no paper message sill persists the sensor in the cartridges might not be functioning.

There is a paper somewhere in the copier. Maybe earlier you have a paper jam and one paper or just a part of the paper is still in the copier.

Most likely the paper is near the imaging unit.

HP 4215xi all in one, continues to give the error paper jam, there is no paper jam. I have cleaned all sensors, rollers etc. I have tried a partial and full reset. Any ideas?


Hi,
  1. Turn off the HP product and turn it around so the back of the unit faces you.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the all-in-one. The power cord must be disconnected to allow the paper feed rollers to turn freely.
  3. Locate and open the rear access door by pressing in on the left side tab and then pulling the door toward you. Figure 2: Removing the rear access door

Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door. Click How to Buy on this page to order replacement parts.
  1. From the rear access door opening, remove the jammed paper.
  2. Remove the remaining paper from the paper supply tray. Discard any paper that is damaged or crumpled and then re-stack and reload the paper into the paper supply tray.
  3. Reinstall the rear access door.
  4. Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on.

The following information will help prevent paper jams from occurring:
  • Never use paper that is torn or wrinkled.
  • If you are having problems using paper that has already been printed on once (recycling), replace it with new paper.
  • Remove and then reinstall the rear access door. Verify that the access door is fully locked in place. The paper can skew if the rear access door is not locked.
  • Every six months to one year, clean the paper feed rollers with a rag lightly moistened with water. Over time the paper feed rollers accumulate dust and do not function as well as they once did.
  • When printing envelopes, tuck the flap into the envelope and crease the folds before printing.
Goodluck..

You need to replace the roller as well as the presure spring. This happens on these all the time. As a matter of fact this happens on a lot of inexpensive printers as well. Someone told me they had a repair kit for this but I never found it. Good Luck

I have an HP Photosmart 8050 printer that gives me a paper jam message after each print job


Hi,
i,d suggest that the paper sensor is faulty.
try unplugging your printer, and setting it back up.
alternatively, hold down the paper-jam button if it,s flashing.
