My oki b 4600 print one page then get jamed paper how i can fix this problem please help me

Age and wear can make a roller shiny and so, slippery, and so cause bad paper feeding

To fix a shiny roller, rub it down with a coarse nail file which yes, will often involve stripping the machine, at least partly.

Consider also, how much would a new machine cost, and take into account that such a thing would come with new ink

Paper wont feed in and get bunched up

Hi Dianne
When paper bunches up it generally means there is an obstruction in the way - after the paper has gone into the rollers.
Sometimes it's as simple as a bit of debirs or even a pin off the pinboard has fallen in. However. a couple of instances have been that in the platen (the bit the paper passes over while the ink is being quirted) there is a strip of oddly cut sponge foam - and this foam as somehow come out of its seating and is getting in the way.
Open the printer as if you are going to replace the inks but take the whole print-head out. (take the inks out first then the print head) Then look at the metal plate and you'll see the foam. Is it dirty? is it wrinkled? is it sitting fluch with the surrounding surface?
Carefully remove it with tweezers (or rubber gloves) and give it a good wash in warm water until the water runs fairly clear.
With a damp piece of paper-towel, clean off the metal plate and the recess where the foam came from. When you are happy that it's clean squeeze the foam between some clean paper towel to remove as much water as possible and then carefully fit it back into the recess. - it's a bit fiddly but it will only go in one way round so you can't get it wrong.
Refit the print-head and the inks and see if matters have improved..
If they haven't then you will need to locate your nearest Canon centre.

A thick black line prints out on back of paper every time i print.

called the local Canon printer repair facility, and a serviceman said that the black line is caused by too much ink in the ink absorber device below the paper path. He said to fix it requires disassembling part of the printer, replacing the absorber foam, installing a longer tip for the excess ink, and reassembling and testing the printer. I asked if this would be a permanent fix. He said no, that the problem could reoccur as the absorber foam would eventually fill up again.
This was posted 2 years ago by Shadyman.
The foam he is talking about is underneath the gray metallic strip that you see when you open the cover.
I used strips of electrical tape to cover that area where the ink is being picked up.
You can open the cove more by dislodging the piston on the right side. Needs two people, one to push the flaps apart and the other to pull the joint out.
Cut a 4 inch long strip, than fold the tape on it self such that there is about 3/4 of sticky tape left. This will allow you to push that portion underneath the metal strip where the paper normally would go. Place it at the location where the black line is (on the Paper). This will create a barrier between the foam and the paper as it moves by. ( I just had to figure out how I can do that)
Secure the tape by taping it on the the black bar, the one with the little fins on it.
I was able to push the tape down a little gap between the black bar and where the white rollers are. Make sure that the tape lays as flat as possible on that bar.
You may need to use two tape strips to cover the area..
I can also see my strips as I look from the outside at the **** where the paper comes out the printer onto the tray.
I guess the the foam swells up and hits a roller, which than offset prints the ink onto the underside of the paper.
Now I have no black line any more.
I know it's a fix, not a repair, but it works so fare.
Thanks to Shadyman for leading me in the right direction.

Keeps saying paper jamed when I try to print

On the Epson website it is confirmed that the Epson WorkForce 610 will not recognize transparency media. It is just the way the printer works; if it can see through the media, it doesn't think it's there. can tape a sheet of white paper to the non-printable side of the transparency, and it prints just fine. I put two strips of scotch tape on either side, top and bottom. Works great. It's kind of a hassle, but better than not being able to print transparencies at all!

The foam was likely used for sound or to reduce the range of motion while in transit. If you are concerned, you could post a photograph of the area where the printer heads move across and a photograph of the foam.

How long have you had the printer?

Continual paper jam: canon mp830 - error 5100

follow the following:
As a technician, I have worked on tons of printers. This particular error had stumped me for a while, but I finally found the cause. As others had pointed out before, it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on) Hope this helps some of you out.

Black ink
