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.

Paper not feeding properly


Follow these steps to reload paper:

  1. Remove the paper and make sure it's not curled or wrinkled.

  2. Fan the stack to make sure the sheets are separated.

  3. Open the paper support and pull up the extension.

  4. Extend the output tray.

  5. Flip the feeder guard forward. Squeeze the edge guide and slide it left.

    pm_paperload_218_er.gif

  6. Insert paper, printable side up and short edge first, against the right side and beneath the tab.

    pm_paperload_219_er.gif

    You can load up to 100 sheets of 20 lb plain paper or up to 20 sheets of photo paper.

  7. Slide the edge guide to the edge of the paper, but not too tightly.

    pm_paperload_220_er.gif

    Follow these guidelines when loading paper:

    • Do not load paper above the arrow on the edge guide.

    • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.

    • If you're printing on both sides of the paper, try loading fewer sheets.

    • If it's wrinkled when it ejects, the paper may be damp or too thin.

    • Do not load paper with holes punched in it for insertion in a binder.

    • Load the printable side face-up. It's often brighter or whiter than the other side.

    • Load letterhead or preprinted paper top edge first.

    • If you experience paper feeding problems, try loading fewer sheets.

    • If you're using special paper, check the package for special loading instructions.
Follow these steps to reload paper in the Automatic Document Feeder:

  1. Remove the paper and make sure it's not curled or wrinkled.

  2. Tap the originals on a flat surface to even the edges.

  3. Move the edge guides outward.

    pm_paperload_223_er.gif

  4. Insert the originals face-up. You can load up to 30 letter-size sheets at a time. If you load legal-size sheets, insert only 10 sheets at a time. Make sure the originals are not creased or folded and do not have tape, staples, or other materials that could obstruct the feeder.

  5. Slide the edge guides against the originals.

check the printer's printing preferences on properties option.should be set to normal then check the printer rollers if its dirty where the papers pass thru, if the problem persists load only 1 paper every time you print for the printer not to grab more papers.i think it is in the feeder and the sensor maybe its dirty need to be cleaned up.

Epson Stylus photo 340 r printer paper jam when trying to print


first, make sure you the paper correctly to avoid paper jam.
Single Sheets 1. Open the paper support and raise the extension. 2. Place your paper short edge first against the right edge of the feeder, under the tab, with the printable (whiter or glossier) side up. If you are loading multiple sheets, fan the stack of paper before loading it to prevent paper jams. Note: Don’t load paper above the arrow mark inside the left edge guide. Some special papers can be loaded only one sheet at a time. Slide the left edge guide against the paper. Make sure it is snug, but not so tight that the paper is bent. (For letter- or A4-size paper, you may not need to move the edge guide over.) paper.4.2.1.jpg 4. Open the output tray and pull out the extension. You should also follow these guidelines:Always load the short edge first, even when you’re printing landscape-oriented pictures. • When using special papers, check the paper package for additional instructions. Some papers require using a support sheet included in the package. Note: Always keep unused paper in the original package and store it flat to prevent curling.
if you loaded the paper, it jammed again, remove the paper and tried to print, still the same, its a hardware issue, alraedy, the printers roller is broken

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.

It grabs several sheets of paper at one time


This is most likely a paper problem, the paper is basically sticking to the next sheet, Ensure the paper is stored in a cool dry place helps, dont load the paper with more than what you need for a couple of days and when loading the paper flick the pages to allow air between the pages
If this dosnt work try a different brand of paper

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.

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.

Cant load paper into my printer


Hello,

 

My name is Vikram Kumar Thumu, from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to loading the paper    . I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue. I hope that this should work for you and will resolve the issue.

 

Please try below steps if you want to know how to load paper in to the Feeder.:


Important: When loading paper into the feeder, make sure you are using separated (i.e., cut) sheets of paper. Banner paper that is connected end-to-end should not be used unless you are specifically printing a banner.

To load separated sheets of paper:

  1. Obtain a fresh stack of paper.
  2. Separate the paper by bending it back and forth in an "S" shape before loading it into the printer.
  3. Place the paper against the right side of the sheet feeder, with the print side facing you.
  4. Gently insert the paper into the feeder. Do not  force the paper down into the printer.
  5. Squeeze the release tab and the paper guide together, and slide the paper guide to the edge of the paper.

Humid conditions may cause some sheets of paper to stick together.

 

If the issue still persists,  then I recommend you to look in to USER MANUAL that is provided along with Printer for instructions on loading Paper.

 

Well, for your convienience I'll provide you with steps that helps to access USER MANUAL.................

 

Steps are :

  • If the Lexmark P4300 software is already installed in Windows:
    1.  Go to Start, (All) Programs, and point to Lexmark P4300 Series. 
    2.  Select User's Guide.


  • If you have not yet installed the Lexmark P4300 software, you can find the User's Guide on the installation CD.  Do the following:
    1.  Insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive. The Lexmark installation screen should appear.
      • If the screen does not appear, open My Computer and double-click on the 4300 Series icon.
    2.  Click on the ?  icon to the left of View User's Guide (including setup troubleshooting).  You will be asked whether you would prefer to save the User's Guide to the desktop and view it from there (Yes), or to view it from the CD (No). 
    3.  Select the option you prefer.
  • This should resolve the issue for you.

     

     If you need any further assistance on the issue, you can mail me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com . I'll be glad to help you.

     

    Bye.
