    Remember the following when selecting the Staple options

    Stapling options can not be selected when using Paper Tray 5.

    Sets of more than 50 sheets cannot be stapled. If a set contains more than 50 sheets and stapling is selected, it will not be stapled.No error message will appear.

    Documents containing different page sizes can be stapled if all of the sizes in the document are supported by the In-Line Stapler Finisher and the feed edge of each paper is the same length.

    For more information on using the In-Line Stapler Finisher, refer to the DocuColor 12/ Document Centre ColorSeries 50 In-Line Stapler Finisher User Guide.

11x17 paper jams from drawer - will not feed from sheet bypass

Check to see if the actuator arm is stuck in the bypass tray,therefore not seeing the paper and be sure the side guides are up against the paper. If that doesn't work and you have 2 cassette cavaties put the 11 X 17 where the other tray is . Hope it works for you.

minumum size for the bypass is 3.5x5.5 and max is 11x17
minimum, for the paper trays is 5.75x8.25 and the max is11.5x16.5
so it should run 5.5x14 in the bypass tray
1 load the paper in the bypass tray
2 in the basics screen touch paper
3 select the button for the bypass tray
4 touch change setting
5 select custom size and program the size

I have a Dell 946 printer and Im trying to print Avery 8871 business card sheets. When I press print the printer will not feed the sheet through and it says there is no paper. I tried to adjust the...

I looked up the user guide at Dell's website and looked up printing cards.

  • The print side of the cards faces down.
  • The cards are centered on the paper exit tray.
  • You select Automatic, Normal, or Photo print quality.

  • Apparently you need to feed the card stock one page at a time into the printer on TOP of the paper exit try (The card stock will feed in from above the normal paper load try [remove paper from the paper tray] and once printed come back to the same spot.

    HP LaserJet 5550DTN jams at transfer unit

    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

    Selecting glossy for 11x17 in Bypass

    Hello Kmully,
    Wow! Nice Q. Many variables. I hope this helps. First, heavy 2 is for the heaviest paper and slows the machine down and will give better color reproduction and consistantcy.Second, you need to use the bypass tray to properly use all the settings available. So use heavy 2 instead of 1,and use the bypass (Canon calls it a multifeed tray in some books) tray for optimal performance with the heavy,glossy stock you are using. I hope this helps. Sincerely.........................SPINAL

    Repeated paper jam in fuser

    Fuser's orange roller is not meant to be wrinkled, if this is then I would recommend you replace it (just slides out) pic below
    b4eead5.jpg If printing on card, you need to feed via manual bypass and exit from the back, not on the top, aka the "face up tray." Tray pulls out from rear. Rear tray will only stack a few card sheets at once.

    Setting on printer's control panel must be set to card/heavy paper type on manual bypass tray

    Their may still be some card in fuser causing jams.

    Please rate as FIxya or post back,
    S. :-)
