Lubricate the print head shaft. Not too much as it will collect dust.

I am positive there is no paper jam with my printer (Z2420) but message of paper jam still appears and it won't let me clear it.


Sometimes a very small piece of paper can still be in the printer paper path after clearing a jam especially if the paper tears while removing the jam. The piece of paper may be too small to notice. Try blowing out the paper area with compressed air. Other causes could be the thickness of paper you are trying to print on, ie photo paper, thicker bond paper. Make sure the print settings match the paper thickness. I have a Lexmark laser printer, and I will get feed problems if the settings are not set for the correct paper type.

I hope this helps.

Paper jam at exit


Have you set the tray to thick cardstock in the printer?
If not try that. This will let thicker paper go through more easily.
Make sure you bot have the tray as the printjob set up as the same type of paper.
How much does the paper weigh?
Also try printing from the manual feed. You're paper path is shorter that way and easier for the printer to handle.
Does it only jam on this type of paper?
Might be a fuser easy but don't think that's the case with this one.

Can not get the card to feed the printer


This printer isn't designed to take heavy paper, only office standard, and slightly heavier for smarter documents / photos. Best idea would be to print one on smart bright white paper (or desired colour), and take it to a copy shop where they can print onto card. The problem is that the thin paper will easily roll round the rollers at the back, however the thicker paper can't, and therefore jams with the rollers tickling the end of it.

Good luck, and congrats on wedding :)

E3 on LED paperwill not feed


Hello,

What you want to do is remove all paper, the prepare to run a print test page or print a blank sheet from some program, any program. Just be ready to do this.

Now, find a magazine cover or index card stock, something firm. Cut this magazine cover to the same width as regular paper 8 1/2 in the US or A4 in Eurpoe.

Now, when you start the print job, push the magazine cover or index stock through while its printing. Apply pressure it the key, to getting the thicker paper through.

This will clear the sensors in the printer and remove the error message.

Why did this happen? In the printer, there are numerous sensors to identify jammed paper. This can happen for the strangest reasons. By pushing thicker paper through while feeding paper by running a print job, the thicker paper forces the sensors back to their original position.

Regards,
Worldvet

when you hit 'PRINT' the window that opens up to complete the job will have a button called 'preferences'. Check to see that the paper selected isn't photo paper. You will have you choice of paper type thickness and size.

Paper problem


At this point, you my wish to try feeding a slightly thicker piece of paper or light card stock through the printer. If that fails and there is no obvious paper jam then I'm afraid there is nothing else and the printer would need to be serviced or replaced.
