Paper feeding problem

My printer either wads up paper as it feeds thru, or will feed extra sheets of paper. Any clue why this happens? I have tried several different brands of bond paper.

Why does the paper jam and a loud noise come from the iP90 printer?


Most likelt to be a foreign object or wad of paper crammed into part of the paper feed roller. The first thing to do is turn it upside down and give a few sharp solid taps on the bottom casing. Then check to see if anything falls out. Also check the leading edge of the paper that didnt go through for marks that might show where it was stopped. If you are sure there is nothing to stop paper feeding through, check at each end of the print head path inside for a clump of ink soaked paper - remove if found. Try feeding a sheet through again. If the paper doesnt feed, try slipping a thin stiff card or plastic sheet back through the feed mechanism from the front. If that doesnt go through, you will have to disassemble the printer to find the problem.

I am trying to print my guest receipts and it is only printing out a quarter of the sheet with no ink.


hello, lets see if we can seperate problem with computer and printer, try running printers self test, i am curios if the machine will print properly, turn printer off, then hold paper feed button and turn machine on, paper will feed and print, once the first test pass, if you want to print the rest, press paper feed button, and machine will print and cut paper, this test is rather a little long, but it will give you info regarding paper feed, and cutting as well as impressions. if paper is dragging, check to see if the paper in machine is in correctly, you might want to check this out first, if the paper is in correctly, then problem is feeding, this is a little hard to clean, but you might want to try some isoproply alcohol and put some on the lead in paper, just enough to get paper wet, and try to allow machine to feed in, or maybe, if paper is already feeding in wet some area before going into machine with alcohol, and press feed button, and allow the paper to feed thru. tear off paper and try the printer test again. if still fails then machine has a problem and will need service.

Miss feeds when print multilpe pages


The paper feed solenoid is sticking, it can be seen thru a hole in the back with the door opened. Not easy to get to, but I have been able to bend the stop tab slightly and run just fine.

Paper Jam C84


Was the printer feeding multiple sheets at the same time, so that the sheer thickness of the wad caused the jam? If so, look into the slot where you load paper (this is called the automatic sheet feeder or ASF). You should see a small roller with a rubber coating. This is what pulls the sheets into the printer. Put one sheet of paper into the ASF and do a print. The Windows test print facility is convenient for this: start-control panel-printer and faxes, then right click your printer icon and select properties, then test print). If this works OK, put two pages into the ASF, then three etc. Observe what happens. If at some point more than one page is pulled in, it infers that the ASF is not working properly, in which case you will need to consult a technician (or have a go yourself at dismantling the printer). If the one-two-three-four etc page test doesn't produce a multiple feed, all it probably means, is that static electricity is holding the sheets tightly together. Make sure when you put a wad of paper into the ASF it has been fanned.

Report back on what you find, or if you have any queries on the above.

Paper feed


The most common factor here is moisture in the paper if it has sat too long. Try just line feeds to see if the transport is at fault or the paper is the problem and inspect the paper feed rollers to see if any debris is fouling things up.

HP paper jam


That is usually caused by the paper feed rollers being cover with paper dust. Take a clean cotton pad and alcohol and clean the rollers :turninig each roller as you clean it. if it has a rear dor, open it to get better access to the rollers.

Printer will not feed paper


Mine did that too.
I found that propping the paper feed cassette up at the end away from the printer worked.
