We have a Fuji Ask 2000. We have 2 problems. Our prints are now coming out curled. The second problem is our prints are showing a ripple design. This is on every print in the very same area. It only shows up on a light colored print. We have cleaned the print head and all the rollers and changed out paper and ink cartridge.

I am experiencing the same problem but the ripple artifact does not show up on every print. rather on every fifth or sixth one. cant seem to find any support from fuji who asked for my credit card number before i even told them my problem. this item should be still in warranty but fuji would not hear it!.. horrible tech support. hopefully someone out there has found a solution

Which way do I insert the transparency into my front loading MP 560 Canon Printer.Shiny side up or down Thank you V


It depends on which side you want to print on. For transparencies, you want to print on one side only. Most likely, you want to print on the shiny side; essentially as if it were a glossy photo. Load the transparency so that the shiny side gets printed on. Don't know that part? Front loading printers are the easiest to determine which side is printed on. Look at where the paper goes in and where it comes out. Think about it; for single sided printing, the paper isn't being turned around inside; merely rolled around an internal roller, then back out. Watch what happens to the paper the next time you print on a single side. See if the top of the printed page came out first, or last.

The most common designs of front-loaders have the paper come out above where it went in. The paper curls around the bottom of the internal roller and comes right back out on top. Therefore, the printed side started out on the bottom, then curled around the internal roller and came out with the printed side up.

Most front loading printers have the top of the printed page come out first; therefore, the same edge that went in first, got printed on first. With that in mind, if you ever want to print on the unprinted side of a piece of paper (that is already out of the printer), obviously keep the printed side up, but since the top of the printed side came out first, you need to make sure the top goes in first to come out first for the back side.

Your Canon 560 printer has duplex printing, so it is a good idea to run your test to see what happens when printed on a single side, and what happens if you use the duplex-mode. For duplex mode printing, after printing on one side, the printer pulls the paper back in to print the other side automatically. Think about how much space is inside the printer. Depending on how much data the printer can store, either the first page is printed, then the second page, or the second page is printed first, then the first page. It depends on how the printer wants the page to come out. You can run a simple test and see exactly what happens.

Since the printer cannot easily turn the paper around, it merely starts with the opposite end of the first printed side when it prints on the back. If the top of the page came out first for the first printed side, the printer prints the bottom lines of the second page of text working back to the top in reverse order. As a result, the bottom of the page comes out first, with the top coming out last.

Some duplex printers can store so much data that the determine how the second page will look, print it first, then print the first page. Watch to see what yours does.

Worse comes to worse, mark a sheet of paper in one corner, insert it into the printer, then print a document that contains only the period character and see where it is printed. By knowing how you put the paper in, and where the period was printed, you can tell how to handle any situation. By the way, the period character was chosen because it will be so small that most likely you can use that sheet again.

Paper curls up when printing


Curling paper is almost always an indication of humidity in the paper. Toss the paper and get some fresh paper out of the ****. if the package the paper comes in was left open it may not be good either. open a new **** and try that

HP 3000n Laser Color Printer - Paper is curling up when it comes out of the printer. How do I stop that?


Make sure you've let the printer know what type paper you are using. In the print dialog on your PC, you must choose in the preferences area whether Plain, Photo, Glossy, Cardstock, Envelopes, etc. Such things control the pressure of the rollers in the fuser, as well as it temperature. Too hot will result in curled paper.

Also, make sure you are storing the paper properly prior to printing. It can't be too damp either, or it will curl.

Finally, if all else fails, your fuser may be overheating and need to be replaced. Hope not. If so, look for a rebuillt one online. Much cheaper than new. Good lick!

Paper is not coming through printer and it comes out curled up


Please make sure that any rollers near the exit tray are clean and gripping the paper. The same is true for any paper feed rollers under the cartridge.

Paper curl


Paper Curl. Does the paper have a curl on the trail edge? (The last part of the paper to exit the printer)

If it is the entire paper replacement of the fuser will likely resolve this.
If the paper curl is on the trail edge then replacement of the upper delivery roller should be done.

Fusing temperature control


1-if the paper is curling, first thing to do is try fresh new paper.
the one that is there probably has moisture.
2- is the fuser o.k. ? if the rollers are not in new condition they will curl the paper. make sure the bottom roller is shiny and smooth, it is supposed to have a clear plastic on it if it is gone or in bad shape, will give problems.

Brother HL_5280SW Clack and pages curling


When paper is damp and runs threw the fuser in machine paper dries out and curls, try fresh paper, see this link about paper. Try a fresh sealed ream of quality paper

I dont have this model in Australia but it looks the same as the HL 5270 and there is bullitin released on these to eliminate paper curl, they upgraded the fuser and exit guide to fix this problem, yours is 2 months old so is covered by warranty, contact brother in your country to have it fixed.
