Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

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.

Take more than one paper when start printing


You may want to "fan" the stack of papers (hold them firmly on one side of the papers and use the other hand to "fan" the other side) before putting in the tray. A lot of time the humidity causes the sheets of paper to stick together which causes the printer to take more than one sheets of paper. Also, make sure that you have plenty of papers in the tray.

Sounds like it is printing but it is not


If the printer head works and you think it's printing, but nothing's showing up on the paper, you need to check the ink cartridge. Be sure that it has ink.

If the printer sounds, but it will only feed the paper and take the paper out again, then try to power cycle the printer. Disconnect the power cord from the wall socket and plug it back in after 5 minutes.

If the printer head moves just a bit, then there's no response from the printer, make sure that there are no pending documents on the queue.

Try to stop then restart the printer spooler. To stop then restart the spooler, here's how:

- Start > Run or Search > Type "services.msc" (without quotes).
- Locate the Print Spooler then click it once and make sure that it's highlighted.
- Click "Stop the service", then give 10 seconds, then click "Restart the service".

If that did not help, try to uninstall and reinstall the printer driver.

Thank you and good luck!

Paper will not feed


Hi,
Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry.
Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print.
Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job.
Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..

Hope that helps!

Printer not picking up paper from paper tray


1). take all the paper out of the paper tray.
2). look at the printer pickup roller while you enable the printer to print a test page.
3). if the roller is not turning, and hear click sound, then you need to take the printer to be service. The gear that runs the pickup roller is broken.
4). if the pickup roller truns, but you still hear the click sound, then most likely the secondary roller gear is broken. You still need to bring it to be repair.

call the repair shop and find out how much it cost and how long, It is cheaper to get a new printer than to have it fixed.

Dear tigerdawg,
As my longtime experience, it seems that any other material such as broken paper,etc present inside paper path of your printer. Please check and remove the material. If you cannot do this by yourself you may ask someone or take the printer to the nearest service center. I hope this help you then rate this as fixya.

Won't print


Sounds like a piece of paper is stuck inside the machine. Open all access doors and check. Remove the printer cartridge and reinsert. Make sure the print job has been purged from the queue.

Paper not feeding


Is this a top feed - that is paper loaded on top at the back bottom feed from a tray underneath? Top feed take one sheet of paper and gently push it down whilst the printer is trying to grab it. Tray feed - take tray out make sure no paper fragments are in the tracks and find a nail board and gently abrade the pick up rollers.
