Question about HP Photosmart 7450 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

How am I supposed to position the paper in the tray?

It seems like no matter how I position the paper in the tray, the print out ends up screwing up in one of these ways:

- Print out gets spread across multiple pages that go through at the same time
- Paper gets crumpled and folded on edges as it goes through the printer
- Page gets printed very crooked
- Printing at bottom of page gets cut off
- Printer doesn't detect any paper and the light flashes red

Occasionally I will get lucky and the page will print out fine. These problems have been going on for a long time, but it's gotten to the point where I'd really like it fixed.

Thanks

Hi. When you open the top cover, there is a guide at the bottom to set. Move paper to right hand side as far as posible en set guide. But it's not one of their greatest inventions.

Paper will not roll into print positions - brother mfc-j430w


Check the green paper-size end guide inside the paper tray, it may be too far forward. There's a mark for letter-size paper (LTR) and I have my guide set right at the mark even though it seems it ought to be shorter. Be sure your paper is back up against the mark. You might also buy some different paper and see if that's the problem. Sometimes cheap paper will not feed right (I use Staples copy paper in my ink jet and laser printers).

Kyocera Mita FS-1000+ paper slip single page? 5 pages print ok


This is a known problem.
Kyocera pretends to produce very silent printers. Therefore certain sheet metal parts inside the printer have a small piece of sponge rubber at their endings.
Unfortunately over the years this sponge rubber gets sticky. The corresponding lever, that is covered at its end with sponge rubber, sticks too long to its initial position. This is the reason why a certain lever is moved too late by the electromagnet into the position where a certain pulley is released.

As a result printing and paper movement are no longer coordinated and the printout is too low on the sheet.

Solution: Get rid of the sponge rubber, clean the lever very well in order to avoid it from sticking in its initial position. As a result you will here a much harder metallic noise when the lever moves, but the printout should be o.k.

Can't Print


Firstly, I have to ask......the paper is installed, and tray set correctly? Does it read the proper size on the display of the copier?
Ok....next, do you have the optional paper trays installed (3 & 4)?
Is that where the 11 x 17 paper is? Then you probably did not add the accessories when you installed the driver and when printing that paper is unavailable.
right click your printer icon, click "properties", then i think it's under the "accessories" , or "options" button....select the optional trays, and anything else you may have. click 'ok' ...should work.

Paper coming out from the tray is folded for richo 2015


You do have a fuser problem. There are a set of stripper fingers that are supposed to keep the paper from wrapping around the heat roller. One of them may be damaged and is catching the paper. The Pressure roller can also cause problems if it is torn. You need to have the fuser looked at by a tecnician to determine the problem. Hope this helps.

Canon PC770 Paper Tray Does not Close Completely


After numerous attempts, the drawer finally slid in and worked --- until today.

New problem - drawer wouldn't come out and indicator showed the paper was out when machine had paper.

Removed screws from bottom of copier - couldn't completely remove the metal plate, but was able to pull it out enough to allow the paper drawer to be removed. Only thing that could be seen as potential problem was a spring hanging down the back that did not seem to be attached to anything. (heavy duty, about 7" long and 1/2 inch diament)

Removed screw, replaced screws in bottom plate - drawer slid in fine - turned on and ran copies just fine. Don't know what the spring was for - but copier is working for the moment.

Clp 310 laser printer can not seem to properly grab the paper from the tray and causes paper jam error. There is a small spring loaded platform at the top end of the paper tray that seems to push the paper...


The pickup roller is loaded with paper dust. You can try cleaning it with alcohol and a swab, but to clean all the rollers in the paper path, get some cleaning sheets from an office supply store. They are sticky on both sides. Run it through a couple of times.

the printer needs a proper servicing and dust cleaning done.as there is a sensor in the printer which detects whether there is paper ,or no paper in the paper tray ,that sensor is moved from its orignal position so this problem is coming.but servicing and cleaning will help.
thanks
