Printer is cutting paper

I'm posting this for a friend, don't have a lot of details. However I was told she changed printer cartridges and something happened after she did that and now anytime she tries to print there is something that is causing the printer to actually cut the paper. I believe it is cutting it the length of the paper. Any ideas? Thanks.

Sure..it's almost certain that something is amiss where the print heads are installed. have them removed, and inspect under inside the cartridge holders..

also, follow some of these guidelines.

I am considering buying the Canon MF8350Cdn and saw on a website review that it will shut down printing when ink is low. This person stated that the cartridge was 1/2 full but it still shut down. Is this...


Your printer is instructed to print only when ALL THINGS ARE WELL with your printer ((proper) paper installed, all cartridges operational, no paper jams, etc.) - because the ink is expensive. If all is NOT well, the printer should not work ... again, because ink is expensive. Your printer does not differentiate between your color print requests and your B & W print requests ... why? Simply because all color cartridges are use all the time when you are printing color and B&W jobs, and your printer has no way of knowing what you are sending until it arrives. Why? Because ink is expensive. Some might say Semper Paratus = always ready.

For optimum results, I always recommend using ONLY manufacturers recommended cartridges, Brother Cartridges for Brother printers, Canon cartridges for Canon Printers, HP cartridges for HP printers and so on. I do not recommend refilling cartridges nor am I a fan of professionally refilled cartridges. For myself, I use only original manufacturers cartridges and I expect and receive the best printing product my printer can produce as a result ... and yes, it is expensive. I am rarely disappointed and if they don't produce, I have a path for redemption. Further, I don't print it unless I need a hard copy which sharply reduces my expense.'

There have been occasions in the past when some cartridges reported they were empty when in fact they still has some ink in them and there are procedures you can follow when this is the case. I don't know there is a general problem like this with your Canon MF8350 (series) printer and neither does someone who posted something on the internet about their specific printer. Pictures are frequently painted on the WWW with a BIG brush - translation, there is a lot of detail left out on a lot of stuff posted on the WWW.

Now then, if there is somehting about your MF8350(series) printer ink use on the Canon site ... that is different. Check it out at www.canon.com/support See what if anything Canon recommends. Before you do all of this, I suggest you go to the Printer folder on your computer (control panel/printers/) and open the specific folder for your printer - explore the options that you will find there. Very possibly, the answer to your quesiton will be found in your printer software - i.e. - resetting ink levels.

Someone will likely come here and refudiate my remarks ... and that is OK. They will tell you only a fool (me) would buy original equipment cartridges and they will tell you about their experience refilling. At the end of the day, neither my nor their exerience means a thing in your case, it is our individual experience.

The very best way to save on ink costs is to be very selective what you send to the printer. Not everything needs to be printed. Also, printers often offer "draft" mode printing which uses less ink (and looks it - it is a draft!). If you NEED hard copy of a lot of stuff, I recommend you find a dot matrix printer which uses a ribbon. While not in wide spread use these days, they are available. Be aware, they print black and white and they are noisy and compared to other printers, the print is 'chunky' and they are a little slow.

I hope I have shed some light on your quesiton, I have tried to help as you asked, and in under 500 seconds. Thank you for your question @ FixYa.com

My printer, freshly installed on my computer, keeps giving me the error for "Load Cassette A4" anytime I print something. I have letter-sized paper in the printer. How do I correct this? Also, it...


You don't specify the printer model, don't specify the operating system... How can we help you, if you don't help us understand your problem?...

Vaguely (as I don't have any details from you) you need to check the default print settings. In Windows they are located in the printer folder options and in the printer driver settings, and have to be both changed to be sure.

Also you might have documents formatted for A4 paper.
Some printers in their settings have an option to automatically substitute A4 for Letter and vice versa, might be worth to find this setting and enable it.

Please come back and leave a rating/testimonial if helped or post a comment for further assistance.

Hardware problem - papersensor x7350 create paperjam


There could be something blocking the paper path or maybe the printer just needs to be reset. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges from the carrier. While the cover is open, check for any foreign objects blocking the cartridge carrier's path and the paper path. If cartridge area is clear, close the printer cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, re-insert your cartridges. Load some paper (avoid overloading). Try to print again. If paper jam continues, then perhaps it's a mechanical problem. Please don't hesitate to contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Printer cuts off 1'' off print on the right side of paper all the time. It doesn't matter what our margin settings are. What could be the problem?


Print a test page by holding down the UPPER LEVEL button for 2 seconds.
If this test page prints fine it may be a driver issue.
If the test page has the right side cut off as well then something is blocking the laser on that side of the printer. Most likely place is something around the drum cartridge area. If you are familiar with the printer and this cartridge you can try removing it and checking this area for a scrap of paper or something blocking the laser light from reaching the drum.

My hp officejet j5750 does not copy


hi im josh in cebu phils.try my solutions
.tt1 {font-size: 10pt;} If your printout is not as you expected, there might be several causes. The most likely cause, believe it or not, is our old friend the poorly connected cable. If all the instructions don't make it from the computer to the printer, your printout will be incomplete, if not totally out of whack. Check all cable connections to ensure a good throughput of data. If that doesn't fix the problem, just change the printer cable. An old or damaged cable could be causing your problems.
tip
tip_icon.gif Printing the printer's self-test page is also a good way to determine whether the problem is in the printer or in the computer—or somewhere in-between.


Another cause of print garbage might be the printer itself. If you have a low or old toner cartridge in a laser printer or a near-empty ink cartridge in an inkjet printer, your printout will be lighter than normal, perhaps even unreadable. If necessary, change the cartridge and run the print job again.
If you're using a laser printer, you might get black streaks on your output. This problem is most often caused by an old toner cartridge, or by a dirty roller or printer cleaning bar. If you replace the toner cartridge and clean the suspect parts (using a cotton swab) and you still experience black streaks, your printer might need service.
If you're using an inkjet printer, it's possible that your print jets are clogged. You'll need to unclog the print jet by inserting a small pin into the jet.
It's also possible that a paper misfeed in your printer caused the printout to become smudged or out of line; if this is the case, straighten the paper feed and start the print job again.
An incorrect printer setup in Windows can also cause unusual printouts. Make sure that Windows is configured for the exact type of printer you're using. Also make sure that you have the correct landscape (horizontal) or portrait (vertical) printing option selected.
If none of this works, you probably have a problem somewhere in your printer. Although a bad printer port on your PC could be the culprit, more than likely some internal problem with your printer is causing the poor printout. (You can confirm this by printing a self-test page; if it looks bad, the problem is in your printer.) Consult your friendly repair center.
Problem: Your Printed Page Looks Half-Finished If you're trying to print a document with a lot of graphics (especially on lower-priced laser printers), you might find that your printer doesn't have enough memory to print the entire document. What you'll get is about half the document—and not always a contiguous half! You can do one of several things to rectify the problem:
  • Add more memory to your printer. If you do a lot of heavy graphics printing, you probably need at least 1MB of RAM installed in your printer. You might be able to add the memory yourself, or you might want to have a qualified laser printer technician do the job for you.
  • Instruct Windows to print this document at a lower resolution. Go to the Printer Properties dialog box for your printer and select the Graphics tab (if your printer has this option). Select a lower resolution (which requires less memory and gives you less finely detailed output) and see if you can now print your document.
  • Simplify your document. If you're using a lot of different fonts and graphics, take some out. It's not an ideal solution, but it might be the only way you'll get this particular document printed on time!
Problem: Your Printer Prints, but the Fonts Aren't Correct If you create a document on a PC with one set of fonts installed, and try to print it on another PC with different fonts installed, you could be in for a real surprise! Windows will try to "match" missing fonts, but quite often the match leaves a lot to be desired—resulting in different line lengths and page breaks than what you had originally. Your options are to install the missing fonts on the PC you're printing from, or change the fonts in the document in question. (A word to the wise: stick to common fonts such as Arial and Times New Roman if you think you'll be sharing a document on multiple PCs.)
Problem: Your Color Printer Doesn't Print All Available Colors This problem is most likely caused by an old ink cartridge. It's not unusual for some colors to get depleted before others, throwing off your color output. If you're seeing less blue (or red or yellow or black) than normal, chances are it's time to change your cartridge.
Problem: Paper Jams in Your Printer It's possible that your printer's internal paper feed mechanisms are getting dirty. You can try taking the printer apart yourself to clean out any pieces of scrap paper or other debris, or you might want to take it into the shop to let a pro deal with it.
You might also be getting some paper sticking to other sheets of paper in your paper tray. (This happens more often with cheaper paper—spend a little more and get the good stuff!) Try thumbing through the stack of paper before inserting it into the tray; this should loosen up the paper and make it feed easier into your printer.
Finally, you might need to change the grade of paper you use with your laser or inkjet printer. Lightweight papers tend to jam up the works, so switch to something heavier if you experience a lot of problems.
THE ABSOLUTE MINIMUM
  • Most printer problems are caused by a bad cable connection, a misconfiguration in Windows, or a bad or outdated print driver.
  • All printers need periodic maintenance; make sure you regularly change toner or ink cartridges, clean the paper path and feed, and—if you have an inkjet printer—use the cleaning option to clean the ink jets and cartridge.
  • If you're having trouble printing graphically intense documents on a laser printer, you might need to add memory to the printer or simplify the documents.
  • Lightweight paper can cause unexpected paper jams; use a better grade of paper to keep things running smoothly.
  • good luck friend

Julie1665, Here are some things that could be causing your problem: -Could be the paper you are printing does not meet the printer specifications. -Could be toner leaking out of the cartridge. -Could be environmental issues, too hot or cold or humid. -The toner density could be set too high. -The electrical contacts that connect the toner cartridge to the printer could be dirty or just not making good contact. -the printer power supply could be defective. -With regards to your toner cartridge are you using new IBM cartridges or refilled/remanufactured? I?ve had many customers call me to fix a printer problem that turned out to be a bad cartridge. All of these are within the capabilities of the typical user except changing the power supply. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Black will not print


Hi springfield, From what you describe I don?t think it has anything to do with your printer drivers. I would try the following: -Run a couple of nozzle cleaning jobs. -If no change I would suspect a defective cartridge and would try a brand new HP cartridge. If these don?t work I?ll need some more details such as do you refill cartridges, buy remanufactured cartridges or use new HP. Also is this still under manufacturer?s warranty? I don?t want to suggest anything that would void it. Let us know what happens and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
