Question about Barebone Systems

5 Answers

I have a problem with my Dell AIO 924 printer bought in November 2005. I think there is a problem with the rollers grabbing the paper to print. It grabs a few at a time or none at all. The paper does not seem to fit properly into the slot appropriated for it. I never had this problem before. What could be wrong?

In some case this is due to a mechanical problem. Most often the cause is simpler, for examplample you are using a paper type different from one for which the printer is currently set. I also saw same problem caused by a small foreign object lost inside the printer (I found 5 p coin once, size of a dime, the object was not detected by printer but disturbed paper load function).To check the inside take the cartridges out, check inside and stuck your fingers down where the paper feeds in. If you find any object (eg paper) keep fiddling with the rollers until you get the object.
Check also that the printer is set to use same paper that you are loading into the tray.

Maybe if you changed the brand of paper, the paper may have a slight thickness change, usually the brand of printer recommends its own paper.

Otherwise I would go with some kind of wear damage which may just result in a new printer or you will have to tear it apart I'm sorry to say

HI,

The problem is with the roller and you will have to replace it or get it repaires by a technician.I'm not sure if the roller can be replaced or not - however, here's a quick way to fix that roller...

get a piece of thin fine to light sandpaper, and put it in the paper tray - tell the printer to print, and when it starts to pull the sandpaper in, hold it so that it will roughen up the rollers.

This tirck ususally works..

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

Hello justjudith52 ,

For the not grabbing the paper try cleaning the roller with a lint free cloth & alcohol. you will not beable to just replace the roller assembly it would be the whole cover/ assembly i believe and should be done by a repair shop, so hopefully just cleaning the roller will help.

It must be mechanical damage on gear and moving shaft connection.

    Regularly you can not find spare parts (are not available or not cost effective way), so if you can have access to it removing cover and use a good glue at plasti gear fitting to moving shaft.

    To remove cover usually you need a special screw driver.

    Good luck!

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..

check the feeder rollers and make sure they are grabbing the page at the right time. Sometimes rollers cna get slick and spin for a moment before picking up the paper. This can cause the timing to be off when the page is fed through.

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

Printer drive sticks to one side, willnot print


Hi,
Check that the rollers, that move the paper are not covered in any residue ( wipe with soft dampened cloth )
check if there are any levers to adjust paper thickness, try loading with several sheets of paper.
Ensure that nothing is trapped between the printers rollers or mechanism.

You prob have a few small pieces of photo paper jammed in the printer somewhere. Try to take something small that you can push through the printer to make sure there is nothing hidden jamming the printer.
