Paper will not feed into the printer

Tried both auto feed (which will start to take in the paper then the paper goes crooked and then stops) and the paper tray which gets the cogs turning but nothing feeds and nothing prints!

Hello there
This is worth trying, it may help.
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Cannon MP 250 crayon stuck between rollers


Description

Cleaning the Paper Feed Roller - MP250 / MP270

Solution

If the Paper Feed Roller is dirty or paper powder is attached to it, paper may not be fed properly.
In this case, clean the Paper Feed Roller. Cleaning will wear out the Paper Feed Roller, so perform this only when necessary.
You need to prepare: three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper
1. Make sure that the power is turned on, and remove any paper from the Rear Tray.
2. Open the Paper Output Tray gently, and open the Output Tray Extension.
3. Clean the Paper Feed Roller.
(1) Press the (Maintenance) button repeatedly until b appears.
(2) Press the Black or Color button.
The Paper Feed Roller will rotate as it is cleaned.
4. Clean the Paper Feed Roller with paper.
(1) Make sure that the Paper Feed Roller has stopped rotating, and load three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the Rear Tray.
(2) Make sure that b appears on the LED, then press the Black or Color button.
The machine starts cleaning. The cleaning will be completed after the paper is ejected.
If the problem is not resolved after cleaning the Paper Feed Roller, contact the service center.
NOTE:After the cleaning is completed, press the Stop / Reset button to return the LED to the copy standby mode.

Paper doesn't feed from inside on XD 100 work center (10 years old, lightly used). Despite a full paper drawer, I get the "out of paper" error message.  I can copy by feeding through the back.


On this machine, the feed rollers might be worn down.
Not seeing the machine and by the description. there can also be other possible problem areas, deep in the machine itself.
Does the paper feed partially out?
If it does not, are there paper black scuff marks where the rollers were trying to feed the paper.
Can you hear the solenoids feed the paper?
If the paper does feed and seems crooked, it is possible the paper tray springs need to be stretched out just a little to push the paper tray plate more on the feed rollers.
Make sure the tray is completely up in the latched position so the feed wheels will touch the paper stack itself.
If you have a two paper tray, make sure you tell the machine what size paper you have for each tray.
Run paper in each tray.
Good luck.

Paper feeding in crooked


Check that all of the sliders in the feeder tray are snug against the paper. Sometimes they tend to slip out and allow the paper to wiggle in the tray resulting in a crooked feed. Other possibilities are dust buildup on the rollers, or worn rollers causing the paper to slip on its way through the printer.

Tray 2 Printing


Hi,

Couple of things for you to check out.

1. Is that you've enabled the second tray for the printer. This is normally automatic but to check go to:
START > Printers > L7780 > Properties
- Click the "Device Settings" tab
... then sort out the different setting so they are all correct such as paper size and of course "Tray 2: Installed"


2. The other more common issue is simply that the printer isn't sitting properly on top of Tray 2 and as a result it's not engaging the cog wheel properly to pick up paper.

This is one of those trial and error things where you pick up the printer and re-slot it down onto Tray 2 until it works properly.


Hope that helps...

Paper Light Blinking


make sure the rear part of your paper tray is not pressed too tightly against rear of paper. it will prevent the paper from raising up fully to the feed roller. you can also try cleaning the feed roller if that doesn't do it.

You might try this before turning it over to the tender mercies of a tech:
Use a high-quality bond paper and remove any other sheets from the feed slot or tray; 'paint' a stripe of alcohol across the page; preferably pure, rubbing alcohol if you can't get other. Let the machine start to pull the sheet through but hold it so it can only take an inch or so before stopping; hold and release several times and hope that one of the stops is between pinch rollers that will yield up its load of paper fibers.
This is NOT a 'sure-fire' method but can often cure the problem for a while before the rollers load up with paper fiber again. BTW, 'bargain' paper can cause this to happen earlier than quality bond since it has more loose wood fiber that can depart from the sheet and build up on rollers.

Paper no longer feeds at all


Open the top where you exchange the cartridges, then check to see that those little cogs keeping the paper in place are'nt oily or jammed, If worse comes to worse, take it to a curcuit city or a geek squad.

Auto feeds crooked


Are we talking about a paper feed problem from the paper cassette tray or the Auto Document feeder on the top. Either way, check the the paper width guides, or if it is the paper cassette tray, remove it and check the paper pick up roller locking clips.
