HP Deskjet 6122 Paper won't feed

This printer tries to pick up paper, paper moves 1/4 inch and stops. I hear the rollers trying to feed the paper. If I manually feed the paper, the paper advances, backs up, then feeds all the way through with a 1/2" crinkle 2" from the left side of the paper. I get a blank sheet before every print out. This is the procedure for every page that prints. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Try putting Isopropyl alcohol on the feed rollers. These rollers become hard and smooth with time and cause all sorts of paper feed problems. You can find isopropyl alcohol at any drug store(it is rubbing alcohol).

Paper feed issues when there is no Paper jam. All the rollers move when the printer tries to feed paper. It'll feed about and inch and a half of paper and then stop showing a Paper Jam.


85% of paper jams are caused by worn rollers . The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease. If you plan to keep your printer,

Replace the pick-up and feed rollers.

When a page is completed the printer does not fully eject the paper and it and the next sheet gets crumpled and spoiled I am using hp deskjet 6122


Make sure the printer paper feed is not blocked with any paper. then check that the rollers are clean.


Also you need to make sure that the paper feed has the correct size settings (Usually a slide across guide labeled from a5-a4/letter)

Hello,

This sounds like a problem with the paper pick up rollers. I would suggest cleaning the rollers with a little isopropyl alcohol. Please make sure the machine is turned off when doing the cleaning. Let the rollers dry for a few minutes. If this does not work, The rollers would probably have to be replaced.

I have a HP 950C Printer And Am Trying To Print on photo paper


It sounds like the printers rollers are slipping on the heavier paper, possibly because this paper is smoother then your regular paper.

Try cleaning the exit rollers on the printer with something like methylated spirits - if the rollers have gone shiny, then you can usually revive them by using some emery paper to roughen them up.

Paper feed problem


this is the rare case: there could be two problem 1) either some bit of paper would have been stucked inside the printer 2) or else the roller is not smooth. the roller inside the printer helps to draw out the paper gently.
