Incorrect "Out of Paper" error

My 1280 keeps giving an out of paper message long before the stack is gone (about 20 sheets to go). The last 20 sheets in my printer have been sat there since I bought it about 18 months ago!!!! Also have problems clearing print queue when there is some sort of error with a document. Have managed this with assistance from the net, but shouldn't they have sorted out these problems - seems no updated drivers since I acquired.

I have an epson printer and when I hit print, the paper slides right thru & says paper jam


  • Carefully remove the jammed photo paper. Gently pull the paper up and out of the paper feeder tray.

  • 2

    Reload the paper into the tray. Stack the paper on a flat surface and then carefully slide the paper stack straight into the paper feeder tray---along and aligned with the right side of the tray. Secure the stack in place by sliding the left "edge guide" against the paper stack.

    Press the "OK" button to resume printing. If you had a "Paper is jammed in the printer..." error message displayed on the control panel LCD, pressing "OK" should also clear the message.

  • 4

    Pull the paper from the printer, if the status message reappears and/or the printer doesn't print, and check the paper for folds, buckling and curled edges or corners. Also check the sheets for sticking. If any of your sheets stick or have damage, remove them from your photo paper stack and replace with new sheets. Reload the paper and press "OK" to try again.

    Error message says"out of paper" when paper tray is fully loaded


    check and make sure that the paper is in near the rollers enough that it senses the paper and picks it up. try lightly pushing the paper down toward the rollers as it is suppose to pull one sheet through the feeder. hopefully, you didnt pull too hard on getting the 'jammed' paper out that it may have caused a misalignment in the feeder. try assisting the paper, that usually fixes it. hope this helps!

    Printing


    Dear jamin4volks;

    As per this excerpt from the Oki B4350 User manual:

    "FACE UP AND FACE DOWN PRINTING
    For face down printing, make sure the rear paper exit tray is closed (the paper exits from the top of the printer). The paper exit bin on the top of the printer stacks printed pages face down, capacity 150 sheets of 20 lb. paper. Pages printed in reading order (page 1 first) will be sorted in reading order (last page on top, facing down).

    For face up printing, make sure the face up rear paper exit tray is open and the paper guide is extended if required. In this condition, paper will exit via this path, regardless of driver settings. Paper is stacked in reverse order, capacity 50 sheets of 20 lb. paper.

    Always use this tray and the manual feed tray for heavyweight stocks to reduce the possibility of paper jams."

    This manual is available at http://my.okidata.com/mandown.nsf/(MOC-B4350)/BE70FCAF93D577E285256E89005052F9?OpenDocument

    Hope this helps;
