Pill dropped in printer

I dropped a pill into my printer, and I believe it's interfering with the gears, so that when I try to print, the paper goes in crooked and I get an E2 or E3 error. Is there any way I can open the printer to get at the gears and get the pill out?

Don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print. showing 3e as the fault
someone replied to my problem, i tried it and its fixed 1st time, also seems to have worked for lots of others.
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving PUSH it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now. Let me know how you get on, from Garty

Getting message that I have a paper jam but there isn't on to be fpund


Try checking the printer for foreign objects that might be interfering with the paper path. Tilt the printer sideways and try shaking it a bit. After that, try printing. If the issue persists, clean the rollers of the printer.

HP Officejet 6210 will print but with terrible clicking noise


Ok this Sounds Crazy but it worked for me and its easy to try. Unplug the unit and pick it up and turn it side ways and gently shake it. Sometimes a small piece of plastic has broken loose and is interfering with the works and if you can dislodge it from its current location it will stop. Be careful not to hurt youself doing it. Also, I have one printer with a missing tooth on one of the gears and has been growling at me for a long time.
Best of Luck,

Every time i try to print the my paper goes in sideways and doesnt feed into the printer properly what wrong????


There is almost certainly something in the print path that is obstructing the paper. Check to see if there isnt some old paper or something dropped in the paper input.

When I press print, the printer tries to take the paper, but the roller/wheels do not come down and grab the paper. Therefore, the printer says out of paper


if the paper fed rollers do not drop onto the paper it is possible the cam is jammed.
turn the unit off remove the paper and try to pull the paper fed arm downwards and try turning the rollers counter clockwise also.
if the arm drops power back up and retry a pcl command if not you may need a technician to strip the unit and adjust the cam gearing or solenoid action depending on the feed and separation capabilities

I have just replaced 2 ink tanks and they are in correctly. But after printing only one page which is slightly out of alignment up comes the error 5100 code. What happened ?


The print carrier is being interfered with. Take out the cartridges and make sure that there is nothing interfering with the movement of the carriage. The paper being askew indicates that there is something inside the printer interfering with the paper path and the 5100 message indicates the obstruction is also affecting the ink carriage.

My paper goes to one side when printing starts and it does not print ny work


There may be a scrap of paper stuck in the machine, interfering with normal paper feed. Turn off the printer, and try to force a sheet of paper through the printer by hand. Feed the paper only in the normal direction that the paper goes. Forcing it by hand may push out the stuck scrap. Thin cardstock can be used instead of paper.

Its caused by the rubber on the feeder wheels getting worn. And the fix is easy. Just peel the flat rubber rings off the rollers, flip them inside-out, and put them back on. Now your paper will feed all the way intot he machine. ( you can order replacements the next time)

Other: Dont use alcohol on these rubber parts, it only dries them out and makes it worse, you can wash them in soapy water though.

Use higher grade heavier paper, its a bit more expesnive but wont wear out your printer with jams and dust.

Most folks (including myself) think the rollers are actuated when printing, actually the paper tray causes the rollers to pop down onto the paper stack when you close the tray all the way. you cant see it, its like trying to watch the refrigerator light go off when you close the door! :)

Brother MFC-8460N ... No Paper response


I had the same problem with a customer, to resolve this issue:

> Go to the printers folder
> Right click on the printer
> Go to printing preferences
> Under the paper source settings change it from autoselect to Tray1 and save the settings.

This will force the printer to print to tray1.

That fixed it for me, hope it works for you too.
