Look inside where the paper goes (the paper path) for a small plastic lever.
it senses the paper and, it may have broken off or, been dislodged it should come out of a small slot. repair or, replace the sensor lever.

Legal size no print of hp Laser Jet 2420n printer


Hii It could be wrong on this but there should be a setting on the printer for paper size and type for tray 1. Use it to set tray 1 as legal size and then use your program to send to the printer. Another way would be to have no paper on tray 1 and send the job. The display on the printer should say to load legal on tray 1 and hit the button to continue. When you do the printer will now know it has legal paper in tray 1. The last method is only good for that job and will have to be done the same way for another job. Specifying tray 1 as legal paper will allow you to have legal paper in the tray when the job is sent and not have to press the button.
All the Best.....

Paper pic-up


The first thing I would try is to clean the paper feed rollers:

1) Remove the paper and power on the printer
2) Press and hold the <Resume/Cancel> button until the power lamp flashes three (3) times, then release
3) Cleaning will start automatically
4) Wait approx. 30 seconds for cleaning to complete
5) When the power lamp lights, repeat #2 above

I suggest repeating #2 at least 5 times. Then you are ready to see if a single sheet of plain paper will feed.

1) Load a single 8.5 x 11 plain sheet of paper
2) Press and hold <Resume/Cancel> button until power lamp flashes three (3) times, then release
3) The paper should be picked up and fed through the printer.

You may wish to repeat this process as well (#1 and #2 above) to insure the paper is being picked up to your satisfaction.

My printer stoped in the midle of print


The 2280+ is indicating a defect with the paper width sensor, the paper width sensor on the 2280+ is locate on the carriage and detects when you try to print off the paper.

You may wish to disable the paper width sensor. To continue printing, this can be done in the following way.

Power the printer on holding down ONLINE
When the printer displays ASCII80 ASCII136 along the top line of the display release the ONLINE button.
Press the Button under NEXT (button 4) repeatedly until you see APW
Press the button under APW
Press button 3 to change this to OFF
Press SET
Place the printer ONLINE to exit the menu.

This will disable the Paper Width sensor which should resolve the issue with the message being seen. You can then get an engineer to look at the paper width sensor to see why this is not working.

On a Canon MP 460 printer, the paper will not feed in straight causing constant paper jams.


If the paper feed roller is dirty, paper is not fed properly because the paper feed roller slips. Cleaning the paper feed roller could resolve the paper feeding problem. Please follow the instructions below to clean the Paper Feed Rollers directly from the unit.Caution: Since the cleaning process wears down the paper feed roller, perform this procedure only when necessary and no more than three (3) times.
  1. Ensure that the printer is powered on and remove any paper from the Auto Sheet Feeder (ASF).

  2. Press the <Menu> button.

  3. Use the right / left cursor button to select [Maintenance/settings], then press <OK>.

  5. Perform the paper feed roller cleaning three times.
    1. Use the up / down cursor button to select [Roller cleaning], then press <OK>.

    2. When prompted to start roller cleaning, use the up / down cursor button to select [Yes], then press <OK>. (The paper feed roller cleaning starts.)

  6. Check if the paper feed roller cleaning procedure resolved the issue.
    1. Load a sheet of letter-sized plain paper in the ASF and open the paper output tray.
    2. Use the up / down cursor button to select [Roller cleaning], then press <OK>.

False paper jam


If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed:
Press the power button to turn the printer off.
Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer.
Close the front cover.
Press the power button to turn the printer back on.
Resend your document to print.

Ensure that:
The paper is a recommended paper for inkjet printers.
You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder.
The printer is on a flat, level surface.
The left paper guide is against the side of the paper.
You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper.
The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder.
Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is against the side of the envelopes.
Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver.
You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.
