Paper Loading Problem

Hello,

When I try to print, the printer will not load the paper correcly. It has trouble grabbing a sheet from the loading tray, and when I manually help it feed itself a sheet after pressing the arrow button it will take the sheet about halfway down and then stop. It still does not detect a sheet being loaded, and when I press the arrow key again, the roller starts turning but the sheet goes nowhere, or only the side with the roller moves down. I've checked for jams and there dont seem to be any. Any tips?

    I have the same problem. Paper going half way down and stopping. The printer then tells me I have a paper jam. Clear the sheet away and the same thing happens. Waste of ink cause that continue as if it has paper.

    Same Problem here, Obviously design/manufacturing problem with lexmark X4580 print feed mechanism. I don't think our printer has printed more than 30 sheets in the time we've had it. Advice for others stay away from Lexmark.

    Same problem. Fortunately my printer has lasted me since Christmas of 2005. I noticed it happened after I had printed some wedding invitations, so maybe the thicker paper messed up the part that pulls the paper in? I don't know!

Use a can of air or an air compresser set at 80 psi and that should help it also remove the paper and close the paper tray when not in use

When i replace with new original 818 color and black/white ink cartaiges the ink status show as b/w full and color iswith"x" mark(no ink) and printer can"t take paper i also re load the driver software


If there is an "X" on the color cartridge indicator then there is a problem with it. If you have removed the plastic tape that covers the part that connects to the computer and you still have this problem then the cartridge is defective and needs to be returned to the store and exchanged for another that is good. Exchange the cartridge and install the replacement. This should solve the problem with the printer not recognizing a full color ink cartridge.

You mentioned that the printer cannot take paper. Please clarify what happens when you load the paper tray and try to print? Are you loading paper one page at a time using the external feeder or are you loading the paper tray full with paper before trying to print? If your loading page by page or filling the tray with only a few sheets of paper then try loading a bigger amount of approx 1/2" of paper. It is easier for the printer to grab paper when the try has a good amount in it. If it still will not load the paper when the tray is full and inserted correctly, please advise what happens when you try and print - exactly? Does the printer respond to the print command sent from the computer? Does it make attempts to load the paper and then fail and stop? Does it pick up paper and then show a paper jam? Does the printer do anything when trying to print from your computer? Answer these questions and I will help you solve this problem right now.

My D7460 will not feed paper The screen says load paper face down in main tray.


Usually this occurs when a printer has had fairly excessive use. This causes the rubber paper feed rollers to become shiny and then they are unable to grab the paper, or it grabs several sheets at the same time. Newer laser printers have now have grooved belt tracks to help prevent this problem.

The easiest way I have found is to BUFF the shiny tracks... Here´s how... Using a ladies nail file (sand paper type) Press the paper feed button to cause the rollers to slowly rotate and buff the rubber as it turns. Making sure no sand enters the rollers. If several sheets of paper feed at the same time. Pull them out and a trick to stop this happening is... to fan the paper before loading into the paper tray. The trapped air will allow the sheets to glide easier.

Load paper


Hi,

To resolve this issue pick one blank sheet and insert it in the tray and try to print self test page. If the printer prints self test page then load the paper properly and try to print. If self test page won't print then check the paper settings.

Envelopes (7"x7", 120 GSM) not being "grabbed" by Epson R1900


I have had a lot of trouble printing on envelopes esp. if too thick. I skipped printing on envelopes but with my cardstock I found that the paper I was using had too much lint too but I was able to solve this by using a slightly damp (definitely NOT wet) paper towel (as lint free as possible) and just wiping/patting the rubber rolling element. The residue seems to stick to the damp paper towel. But I have to do it quite often (about every 2-3 sheets) I'd try printing individually also.

Hp2210 message ''press enter to align cartridges'',


from user manual::
To align newly installed print cartridges
1. Make sure you have letter or A4 unused plain white paper loaded in the input tray.
The HP All-in-One prints a print cartridge alignment sheet.
NOTE: If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the print cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input tray, and then try the alignment again.
If the alignment fails again, you might have a defective sensor or print cartridge.
Contact HP Support. Go to www.hp.com/support. ....
2. Load the print cartridge alignment sheet print side down on the left front corner of the glass with the top of the page to the left.
3. Press the Scan button.
The HP All-in-One aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print cartridge alignment sheet

Printer not recognising that paper is loaded


Had this problem yesterday, then after downloading the manual you need to
switch feed (left hand side). There are two feeders in the rear and pull out tray
at front, very bottom.

Hope this helps !

Not grabbing paper


Try cleaning the rollers again and fan the paper. When you clean the rollers, use alcohol and a lint free cloth. Don't put too many sheets in the feed tray.

Clean the rollers down where the paper sets in the printer. Do not use cheap generic matte coated paper. Some generic matte coated paper will leave a film on your rollers and cause them to not grip the paper.
