    paper pulling down on the right and jamming- your previous comments talk of realigning the roller but I cant see how to do this

  • nrass909 Oct 16, 2008

    This is so frustrating. Yes, pulls to right and jams. Please give a visual guide and instructions on how to locate the rollers (which on mine do not appear to be rubber) and how to re-align them.

I propped open the unit, cleaned the black rolls off with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Then It printed like there was never an issue. My roll did have white dust all over it.

I had the same problem with the right side pulling and jamming.

Low-cost paper use can lead to this problem and all other problems with the accuracy of the paper feed.
Fibers from cheap paper can build up on the soft rubber rollers, reducing their ability to grip the paper.
Cleaning the drive rollers aggressively with a 'rubber rejuvenator'
(Blow Off - http://computergang2000.stores.yahoo.net/bloffruresp.html )
and applied to a hard-surface cloth or paper towel can restore the lost grip.
If you are close to a supplier to the copier trade you would find it there also.
I don't recommend spraying the stuff as it can damage plastic.

Hey there mojo

you must align or replace the roller for your printer.

thats why its going to the right. the roller inside is mis-aligned. about the ink, you should clean the printhead.

Paper jammed in Dell 713W printer, removed paper and now will not print, paper gets pulled up to roller but no further


There is a Paper empty sensor (black paddle) on the right side. It is about 1/4 of from the right edge of the paper. It senses the paper and it gets toggled when the paper goes through. Sometime the paddle comes loose or breaks. from a previous paper jam. Look at it with a flashlight..push it back and it should toggle the switch and retun to it proper position.

I have a brother_mfc_9840cdw_laser_printer and get a message of No Paper reload Paper in tray, and I have taken out the tray multiple times and placed paper in, I am at a loss of what to do please help


IS the application you are printing from choosing the correct tray? That printer has multiple trays correct? If so try putting paper in another tray and seeing if it prints. If so you have the wrong tray selected when you print from your app. Also pull out all the trays and make sure you do not have a paper jam that you can not see. Sometimes paper jams will display as out of paper messages

Printer pulls paper to right side jams does not print


usually this indicates some foreign object on the opposite side where the paper goes in. Please check to see if you have some small pieces of paper or something else in the paper path area.

also, another possibility is that your pickup roller is missing, dirty or damaged. try cleaning it too.

thanks adi

Paper jammed but no paper is jammed.


Sounds like something has fallen into the paper path. Use a flashlight and small mirror to look down the slot where the paper goes. You may have to use a straightened paper clip or the like to help remove the obstruction.

Paper pulls to the right, jams, won't print, tried different paper still won't print


Hi,
Sounds like the feed rollers need cleaning.
Clean the feed rollers, lint free cloth,bottled water.
wait for them to properly dry

Revolve the feed roller bar as you clean them, to clean the feed rollers all the way round, remove all particles from them.

Check you ADF grips are set correctly, if not you will get mis-fed sheets. check the tray is sat properly too or mis-feeds.

Check paper size is correct in print properties too.
Should be good then
Try print.

Regards
Richard.

PAPER JAMMED-PRINTER HL5150D


Hello a_bowen1


You can clear the jammed paper as follows.

If the jammed paper is removed completely by using the information in the following steps, you can install the paper tray first, and then close the front cover and the printer will resume printing automatically.

If the printer does not start printing automatically, press the Go button. If the printer still does not start printing, please check that all the remaining jammed paper has been removed from the printer. Then try printing again.
Note
    • If a paper jam occurs when using the optional lower tray unit, check for correct installation of the upper paper tray.
    • Always remove all paper from the paper tray and straighten the stack when you add new paper. This helps prevent multiple sheets of paper from feeding through the printer at one time and reduces paper jams.
  1. Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer.

  1. Pull the jammed paper up and out of the printer.
chap0614.gif
  1. Press the cover release button and then open the front cover.

  1. Pull out the drum unit assembly. Pull the jammed paper up and out of the printer. If you cannot remove the drum unit assembly easily at this time, do not use extra force. Instead, pull the edge of the jammed paper from the paper tray. If the jammed paper can not be pulled out easily, turn the jam dial towards you as you gently pull the paper out.
hl50_05712.gif Caution
    To prevent damage to the printer caused by static electricity, do not touch the electrodes shown below.
hl50_046.gif
  1. Open the face-up output tray. Pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit. If the paper jam can be cleared, go to Step 7.
Note
    If you have to pull the paper toward the back of the printer, the fuser may get dirty with toner powder and it may scatter on the next few printouts. Print a few copies of the test page until the scattering of toner stops.
chap0615.gif Caution
    After you have just used the printer, some internal parts of the printer are extremely hot! Wait for the printer to cool down before you touch the internal parts of the printer.
hl50_058a.gif
  1. Open the jam clear cover. Pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit.
hl50_059.gif
  1. Close the jam clear cover. Close the face-up output tray. If the paper jam still cannot be cleared, for HL-5130 and HL-5140 users go to Step 10, and for all other users go to the next step.
  1. Pull the Duplex Tray completly out of the printer.
hl50_065.gif
  1. Pull the jammed paper out of the printer or the Duplex tray. Put the Duplex tray back into the printer.
chap0634.gif
  1. Push the lock lever down and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit assembly. Take out the jammed paper if there is any inside the drum unit.
    Put the toner cartridge into the drum unit until you hear it lock into place. If you put it in properly, the lock lever will lift automatically.
hl50_047.gif Caution
    To avoid print quality problems, DO NOT touch the shaded part shown in the illustration.
    If you accidentaly touch the shaded part, wipe the surface with a dry lint-free soft cloth.

Paper feed problem from both tray 1 & 2


There is a long set of sensor flags on the bottom of the paper input unit that can get stuck and not move freely. This will cause jams from both trays. Try unplugging the printer, removing the toner cartridges and tray 2. Turn the printer on its back or side. You will see a long, black plastic bar with flags on it that runs the length of the paper input unit. make sure it moves freely.

6. If the paper jam cannot be removed from the back of the printer, raise the printer cover, remove the paper jam from the front of the printer, and then lower the cover. Caution Remove the paper jam carefully as it is possible to damage the 
  printer when removing paper from the front. 
7. Turn on the printer, and then press the Resume button.

Hi, please check if there is a paper jam or any obstruction inside that printer. Check also the platen lever or the left edge guide, make sure that paper is loaded correctly. Try printing again. If issue still present. Your printer needs to be send to service center.
