HP Photosmart 2410 will not print cardstock. The paper feeds through but when it goes to print it locks up. Is the paper too thick? Is there a way to adjust the settings?

SOURCE: HP 2410 indicates paper jam

Considering you can get a new Brother laser printer for about $100 and the fact that you current printer is worth about $40 its not worth taking to a repair shop if you can?t fix it yourself. Having said that my first guess would be to take the toner cartridge out and blow the inside clean with some ?compressed air?. Get a can of it from Staples or any computer store for a couple of dollars and resist the urge to use air from a commercial compressor. It?s too strong plus unless you have a water/oil filter you?ll make a mess of your printer. Look carefully at the paper path to ensure a small piece of paper isn?t in there blocking a sensor and if you have another fresh cartridge try that too. I?ve had problems with HP printers doing this and the problem has always been a defective sensor or circuit board. So unless you have a friend or free spare parts you are going to be looking at a repair bill of at least ½ the cost of a low end laser printer.

SOURCE: Will not feed paper. HP Photosmart 2575

This is a very common problem. Apparently HP changed the roller because of this fault.
I've tried cleaning, I've tried making the roller rough. I tried to get HP to send me a new roller but they didn't even reply.
HP are a rubbish company who don't care at all about customers (and their printer software (bloatware) is even more rubbish).
BUT - the solution I found:
The spring that holds the roller down onto the paper is too weak. I bent the end of a straightened out paper clip into a small hook then made another hook-like bend a bit further up (but kept the rest of the clip to use like a handle). the length between the two hook parts is just under 1/2 inch. Don't cut it yet - buy you will need to when it's in place.
ad74983.jpg Hold the handle end (the bit at the bottom of this sketch) so you can fiddle about in the small space and don't loose the spring altogether.
Find the spring that fixes onto the roller gadget, it hooks onto the printer body. Hook the spring off the hole in the printer body, and then catch the second (double) hook of the paperclip onto the small printed circuit board just by the roller (most of the board is empty - so hook it to the left end of the board).
Then, when it's all in place cut the rest of the paperclip off.
You can see the double hook part once I'd cut off the "handle" piece in the photo:

Of course this is what I did (when I was about to throw the printer away so it was a last chance survival idea), if you loose the spring, stick it onto something that goes sparky-sparky or otherwise kill the machine or yourself I can't take responsibility!

You were using this prevoiously; I mean previously it was fine. now you have problem.

Because usually this may not be the problem with a printer. This is a problem of paper. You may use duplexing if it allows you.

Why is my printer printing half of page on cardstock


If you are feeding it through like you would with normal weight paper than you are always going to get this. Most printers have a secondary feed point for heavy stock paper. Usually in the back.

Cannnot copy a double sided document to cardstock


This is normal. The cardstock is fed from the manual feed or bypass tray and when selected the duplex option goes away. Many manufacturers do this....meaning they do not allow duplexing from the bypass tray. For the same reason they do limit automatic duplexing to standard or near standard papers. Cardstock is specifically excluded from duplexing obviously due to it's thick nature and when duplexing the paper has to be turned over and go thru paper paths that are not suitable for thick paper. If you must make a 2 sided copy using cardstock you will have to run the sheet thru the machine 2 times, also known as manual duplex.
Hope this helps.

Cardstock won't feed


You need to hand feed these things.....one at a time. I sometimes find that I have to "help" it a little bit to get it feed by putting just a bit of pressure on the paper to push it into the feeder. Another trick is to make sure the front edge is turned up just a bit. (I usually take about 10-15 pieces of cardstock and roll them, and then feed them one at a time) that seems to work pretty well, too

I am unable to print photos usingthe HP Photo Papers


Does it print on normal paper ?

If it does is then you need to look at the material you are trying to feed, there a limit on what thickness of material your printer will happily accept

Media comes in all different thicknesses and forms (We make the stuff) and some printers will struggle to feed 200gsm photo glossy etc

You could try cleaning the infeed rollers with an alcohol based cleaner to improve their grip.

Even Gin or Vodka will suffice as they both clean and evaporate quickly

Brother laser printer wont print on cardstock My brother printer won't feed teh card stock paper. It used to work but now it won't feed it, normal paper works fine. Even if i nudge the card stock paper,...


If there printer is not able to print on card stock then check the recommend
card stock paper thickness, if the printer works with normal paper but not card stock then there is problem in the card stock and by using this paper may also damage the rollers on the printer and make the printer useless ...

Good luck...

Paper too thick?


You will need to use the manual feed and insert the cardstock one page at a time. First look at the rear of the printer for a purple dial. Roll the dial downward. This will allow the printer to exit straight out the back of the machine. Allow enough room at the rear of the printer so the cardstock doesn't hit anything on the way out. Next look at the front of the machine at the **** just above the paper tray. You'll see an envelope icon. Align the cardstock when manual feeding one sheet at a time to the left side of the **** next to the envelope icon. When you hit "file, print" select MANUAL FEED in the print window.

The 4L will only do cardstock by one at a time in the way noted above as the feed system isn't strong enough to make the sharp bend coming out of the tray or in the back to bend it around and into the top tray.

Paper keeps jamming


To print card stock you must us the manual slot in the front of the printer and feed one at a time. Also open the back flap door so the card stock can exit out the back instead of trying to bend around for the try. That will give you the staight paper path that your thick stock needs.

HP 2575 Jamming on cardstock paper


most likely that printer would do it if it were brand new, but after a period of time, the mechanism becomes 'tuned' to a certain size paper..

you may need to realign the rollers, etc, to accept the thicker paper.

my recommend..go to a local print shop with paper and images/data on cd, and let them do it.
