Paper Jam when printing on cardstock 2nd run Dell 5110cn

I need to print twice on A5 cardstock, and I have the paper selected as "Coated Thick Side 2" for both prints, thinking that this would be the lowest heat setting. But I keep getting jams on the second run through. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

    Every time I go to print something, it says "paper jam" "clear paper jam and then hit select" when I do that, then it says, "out of paper. It is not out of paper. Don't know what to do or try?

You were using this prevoiously; I mean previously it was fine. now you have problem.

Because usually this may not be the problem with a printer. This is a problem of paper. You may use duplexing if it allows you.

Why is my hp 5610v not printing on cardstock?


Are you print through manual bypass? If not try doing it that way. Card stock is very thick and by using manual bypass it doesn't require as many turns for the card stock.

I have an oki c9650 when I print on cardstock the blacks become bubbly and flake off, but only when printing on cardstock


Set it or computer, whatever you are using to cardstock, or it may be called thick,there are multiple selections depending on the media. Beacuase thick paper requires slower speed and hotter fuseing.

When i use card stock it acts like a paper jam,with a little help it prints fine


Make sure that you are setting the proper paper type before printing any paper other than "plain" by going into the printer's "properties/preferences". If it's thick paper, choose "thick" or "heavy" or "cardstock" in the drop-down arrow.

Unless, of course, your printer doesn't accept cardstock at all, then you're out of luck.

Hope this helps. :)

How to prink on cardstock on Ricoh Aficio CL2000N


To print on cardstock:

- Load the cardstock paper in the paper tray and make sure the fences are snug but not too tight.
- Press Menu.
- Scroll down to find Paper Input and select it.
- Select Paper Type.
- Select Tray 1.
- Scroll to find "cardstock" on the list and select it.

You'll also have to set your print driver for cardstock or auto select, because if the print driver shows plain paper and the printer shows cardstock paper, you'll get a mismatch error.

PRINTER DID NOT TAKING PAPER AFTER PRINT OPTION AND PRINTER STOPS AFTER 2INCHES PAPER


hi
I guess its a coz of paper jam in your printer.
Heavy cardstock and certain types of slick or coated paper can cause frequent paper jams. To better isolate the cause of your problem (machine or paper), try a new **** of regular 20 lb copy or laser paper.

  • Don't Overload
    Overloading your paper tray can cause paper jams. Your manual may say that your input tray can hold 250 sheets -- but if you keep getting jams, try loading 225 sheets instead.
  • Check the Paper
    Check the minimum/maximum paper weights that your printer can handle. Paper that is too thick, or too thin, can cause jams.
  • If you still get paper jams after this may be its time to clear the internal of the machine..You might want to have a look at the following link..

Ok,

I've went around and around with the same problem (bug) and finally found a solution. Here is the deal. You have to exactly match the settings for the MPF tray in the aplication softwares to the MPF tray settings set from front panel on the printer.

I found this problem when trying to print on gloss paper. The MPF tray had to be set for "Coated 1 Side 2" in both the application and on the front of the printer.

Lets say I'm printing a Word Document. Go to file, print, select the Dell printer, then select properties, select paper tray, set paper source to MPF, set MPF settings to ""Coated 1 Side 2". Click OK.

Now do the printer setup. From the front panel on the printer.
Press Menu, press the down button to Tray Settings
Press center button to select.
Display now asks for paper type. Press center button.
Displays MPF. Press center button.
Push down button until you see Coat1 Side2
Push center button to select.
Press Menu to exit.

I only print on gloss so I have to set the MPF tray to Coated 1 Side 2. I was told this slows the feed and that is needed for coated papers. Now you could probably use another setting as long you set both the MPF tray in both the application and the control panel to match exactly.

Choosing a paper type


Un fortunately it is often a trial and error thing. I would try all "special settings", even cardstock ect.

Ink smudges when printing cards


If you are using cardstock you have to tell machine that you are using thick paper. Place cardstock in bypass select paper size then select thick 2 or thick 3 as paper type.

This increases trasfer charge ,increases fusing temperature ensuring image is bonded to card stock paper.
No more smudging
