Please check the following steps:

1.Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam.
2. Turn off the printer. Remove any paper trays. Look for wrinkled or damaged paper.
3. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge.
4. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it.
5. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though.
6. Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays.

**If this works please rate else let me know in case of further help.**

SOURCE: problem with paper feed - all sheets come out

Sounds like your fuser is bad, ink is not adhering to the paper and building up on a roller that is causing the paper to wrinkle.

SOURCE: Paper completely wrinkled

I have the same problem!! All of a sudden the hp 1300 started majorly wrinkling the left side of the paper (and occasionally the whole paper). I had to buy a new hp 1320 which has been fine. I decided to take this printer home and find the problem. I used to work for IBM...repairing office equipment. I cannot find the problem EXCEPT that there are pieces of torn "mylar"...charcoal color on one side and tan color on the other. I am sure that this has something to do with the problem. I can see a roller(?) from the "straight through" in the back. It is difficult to see. I think this "mylar" (?) is ripped and causing the paper to wrinkle badly. How do I replace the damaged mylar? What is this mylar?? It is impossible to take the covers off and get at this! I have nothing to lose...I am ready to throw this printer away...what a shame if it is something simple to fix!

In these areas there is offen a jammed and not removed piece of paper dislodged in the paper path or jammed in the fuser or the transfer rollers teflon coating has perished inspect the areas carefully and remove any found if the unit still is faulty (fanning of paper the fuser would be the first to be replaced are past there usable life) if so then Post a reply

SOURCE: wrinkling paper

I don't see any tear, but there is a piece of broken plastic that I can't get out. I almost had it with a pair of tweezers, but it slipped down inside where the paper comes out. Is there a way to get into there without destroying the printer? Is there an available diagram of how this roller comes apart?

Thanks so much for caring!!!

We have a Laser Jet Pro CM1415. It wrinkles linen envelopes when printing. Is there a quick fix (adjustment etc.)? It prints slick envelopes OK.


Hello,

that printer is really not designed to print on those envelopes but the wrinkling is usually caused by to much moisture in the envelope or paper stock. When the printer heats the print stock to bond the toner to the paper in the fuser unit the moisture evaporates and causes the paper to wrinkle. Don't know of a fix for it other than use different print stock.

When we print something,the paper comes out and is wrinkled and has some ink on it in places where there is no print. The fuser checks out fine.


Description sounds like the fuser rollers are bad.
To check it out run a 1/2 test.
Put paper in the manual feed tray. Print something. As the paper gets 1/2 way into the printer, open the top cover,(you might have to print a few sheets to catch it just right) take out the toner and look down at the paper. If it is wrinkled, you could have a bad toner cartridge. If it looks good...get the fuser replaced.

Paper wrinkles when printing


You can try these following solutions:

If the paper does not completely eject, press the paper with folded side paper button, then open the printer cover and remove the paper. Also, check the Paper Size setting in your application or printer software.
If the paper is wrinkled when it comes out, it may be damp or too thin. Load a new stack then try to print again. You can also try to check the printer alignment and the printer setting.

HP LaserJet P3005 printer prints wrinkled paper


2 reasons:
1. Was there a paper jam prior to this problem? It could be that the paper was pulled out and a small bit of it is stuck on the pins that guide the paper from the heat roller. If no torn jammed paper prior to this issue, then check out 2.

2. the heater/roller is damaged and needs to be replaced. I would suggest you take it to your nearest HP dealer to properly diagnose this for you.This would save you unnecessary cost in trying to pull it apart and causing more damage to it.

Good Luck,

My Dell 1100 keeps wrinkling and tearing the paper


Depending on wear the tear is at determines the issue. The wrinkling paper and the look of your printer sounds like some sort of fuser issue. Recycled paper is more likely to wrinkle and the grain can cause paper to wrinkle as well. The Long grain paper is up and down the sheet and short gain is side to side on a sheet of paper. If your printer is on a long grain setting and you have the pages coming out sides ways or vice versa then your print outs can wrinkle.

CLJ8550n poor print quality and wrinkled paper


this is usually not caused by the paper tray. this problem is usually caused by the fuser assembly. check your paper path. dead cycle the printer, shut the printer down before the paper enters the fusing area, check for wrinkles. remove all paper, print again, check the output, wrinkles, replace the fuser.
