The cardstock you are using might be to heavy or rough for the 2600n to use.

FOr this printer HP recommends paper no thicker than 0.18 mm (7.0 mils), and between 100 and 250 on the Sheffield "smoothness" scale.

More information on recommended paper weight and smoothness is available here:

Paper always jams even without starting,,,,specially when im going to print cardstock, it never works


Jams from where? Need more info. Cardstock must be printed from the Bypass Tray ONLY. Make sure you select the proper paper type from the Printer Properties tab in the driver.

You must change the printer settings in software to let it know it is using cardstock. This will adjust the roller height so the printer will not jam.

Cardstock won't feed


You need to hand feed these things.....one at a time. I sometimes find that I have to "help" it a little bit to get it feed by putting just a bit of pressure on the paper to push it into the feeder. Another trick is to make sure the front edge is turned up just a bit. (I usually take about 10-15 pieces of cardstock and roll them, and then feed them one at a time) that seems to work pretty well, too

My piece of cardstock paper keeps jamming barely out of the tray. is there something i can do to have it go all the way through. I have a samsung clp-315 laser printer.


Yes, you have to change the print properties on the computer to let the printer know it is using cardstock. Please refer to the owners manual to get the information. The manual can be found at www.samsung.com under the support section.

Paper too thick?


You will need to use the manual feed and insert the cardstock one page at a time. First look at the rear of the printer for a purple dial. Roll the dial downward. This will allow the printer to exit straight out the back of the machine. Allow enough room at the rear of the printer so the cardstock doesn't hit anything on the way out. Next look at the front of the machine at the **** just above the paper tray. You'll see an envelope icon. Align the cardstock when manual feeding one sheet at a time to the left side of the **** next to the envelope icon. When you hit "file, print" select MANUAL FEED in the print window.

The 4L will only do cardstock by one at a time in the way noted above as the feed system isn't strong enough to make the sharp bend coming out of the tray or in the back to bend it around and into the top tray.

Paper keeps jamming


To print card stock you must us the manual slot in the front of the printer and feed one at a time. Also open the back flap door so the card stock can exit out the back instead of trying to bend around for the try. That will give you the staight paper path that your thick stock needs.

HP 2575 Jamming on cardstock paper


most likely that printer would do it if it were brand new, but after a period of time, the mechanism becomes 'tuned' to a certain size paper..

you may need to realign the rollers, etc, to accept the thicker paper.

my recommend..go to a local print shop with paper and images/data on cd, and let them do it.
