Paper printing hot and curling on kyocera taskalfa 300i.....how do i remedy that problem.


Paper curling is usually caused by one of two things:

1. old damp or moist paper that has too much humidity in it. Easy test for this is to open a brand new ream of paper and try fresh paper.

2. The fuser temperature is too hot for the paper you are printing on. If you can set paper type on your printer, make sure it matches the actual paper, for instance, plain paper, heavy paper.

It curls all my cardstock!


You will get alittle curl on all prints with this unit, as the paper path is curled ** paper collected from the bottom tray will travel in a semi circle to exit the unit** but if the curl is excessive then it is possible the card stock is just alittle too think for the unit or the card stock is damp, if you are in a humid location its best to store you paper and cards in a dehumidifier box

WILL FEED PLAIN WHITE PAPER BUT WILL NOT FEED PHOTO PAPER


Follow the steps:
•1
Turn on the printer and press the Paper Feed switch until the Auto Sheet Feeder indicator light turns on.
•2
Pull up on the paper sheet feeder on the top and back of the printer and slide out the paper support.
•3
Take a stack of no more than 10 pieces of photo paper and flatten the corners, if they are curled. Curled corners may cause jams within the printer.
•4
Place the paper in the paper sheet feeder with the printable side of the paper facing up. The printable side of photo paper is the shiny or whiter side of the paper.
•5
Print your documents as needed.

Paper Cassette :

•1
Switch on the printer and press the Paper Feed switch until the Cassette indicator light turns on.
•2
Pull on the cassette on the bottom of the printer to slide it out of the printer.
•3
Flatten the corners of a stack of no more than 10 sheets of photo paper if the corners are curled. The paper may become jammed in the printer if the corners are curled.
•4
Place the stack of paper in the cassette so the paper is touching the right side and the printing side of the paper is facing down. Adjust the plastic paper guides so they touch the paper. The paper stack guides help facilitate the paper moving into the printer.
•5
Slide the cassette back into the bottom of the printer. The printer is ready for printing.

Paper won't feed


Inside of the machine is dirty.
If the inside of the machine is dirty, the printed paper may be smudged.
Follow the steps described below to clean the inside of the machine.
1. Ensure that the machine is turned on and there is no paper loaded in the Auto Sheet Feeder.
2. Place A4/Letter-sized plain paper in landscape orientation, horizontally fold it in half.
3. Unfold the paper, and load the paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder with the inverted-V edge down.

4. Select <Bottom plate cleaning> from <Maintenance>.
5. Select <Yes> on the Bottom plate cleaning confirmation screen and then press [OK].
Paper will be ejected.
If protrusions inside the machine are stained, wipe ink off the protrusions using a swab or such like.
* Important
Before cleaning, be sure to turn OFF the machine.
Paper feed roller is dirty.
Follow the steps described below to clean the paper feed rollers.
1. Ensure that the machine is turned ON and there is no paper loaded in the machine.
2. Select <Roller cleaning> from <Maintenance>.
3. Select <Yes> on the Roller cleaning confirmation screen and then press [OK].
The paper feed roller will rotate as it cleans.
4. Repeat this operation twice.
5. Load three or more sheets of A4/Letter-sized plain paper lengthways in the Auto Sheet Feeder.
6. Select <Roller cleaning> from <Maintenance>.
7. Select <Yes> on the Roller cleaning confirmation screen and then press [OK].
The paper that is loaded in the machine will feed through the machine and be ejected.
8. Repeat Steps 5 to 7 three times.
Inappropriate paper type is used.
Check to see if the paper you are printing on is too thick. See Paper Types You Cannot Use.
Note that smudging may occur at the top and bottom edges of the paper when using Borderless Printing. Ensure that the paper you are using is compatible with Borderless Printing.
Thick paper is used.
When printing on thick paper, set the Paper Thickness Lever to the right.
This widens the gap between the FINE Cartridge and the paper. Try this maneuver if the printed surface is scratched.
Media is curled.
If all four corners or the printing surface of the paper is curled, the paper may become dirty or may not feed properly. Use the paper after correcting paper curl as follows.
1. Place the printing surface face up (A), and cover it with a sheet of non-printing regular paper to avoid damaging the surface.
2. Roll up the paper in the direction opposite to the paper curl as per the figure below.
3. Check the printing paper to confirm if the paper curl is eliminated to within approximately 2 to 5mm / 0.08 to 0.2 in (B).
It is recommended to print on curl-corrected paper one sheet at a time.
The media type is not selected correctly in the printer driver.
On the [Main] tab of the printer driver, ensure that the [Media Type] selected matches the paper loaded.

In the [Print] dialog box of the printer driver, select [Quality & Media] from the pop-up menu, and then ensure that the [Media Type] selected matches the paper loaded.
Paper is loaded incorrectly.
Load in the portrait orientation regardless of the print direction of the Auto Sheet Feeder.
Ensure that paper is loaded correctly. Slide the paper guides against the paper stack.

Paper curls on 8460 Brother


The following is Brother's take on your problem. All of their solutions have some merit but the one I'm leaning toward is overstuffing of the paper tray. It's common in most offices (and homes for that matter) to have a tendency to stuff the paper tray when it runs out.

Paper curl


Paper Curl. Does the paper have a curl on the trail edge? (The last part of the paper to exit the printer)

If it is the entire paper replacement of the fuser will likely resolve this.
If the paper curl is on the trail edge then replacement of the upper delivery roller should be done.

Media curls on lead and trailing edges


Any of the following:-

Ensure the correct paper weight settings are in use. Excesive heat will cause paper curl.
Feed paper short edge first.
This is normal with high ink coverage on light paper. Use a heavier weight paper.
Your fuser may need replacing.

Curling


The paper is definitely your problem. I suggest you try all types of paper settings that are available on your machine. I think there is a recycled paper setting.

Curled corner causing a paper jam


Try replacing all paper. Sometimes paper that is overly humid or has gotten wet will curl. Replace with new paper and report results.

Brother HL_5280SW Clack and pages curling


When paper is damp and runs threw the fuser in machine paper dries out and curls, try fresh paper, see this link about paper. Try a fresh sealed ream of quality paper

I dont have this model in Australia but it looks the same as the HL 5270 and there is bullitin released on these to eliminate paper curl, they upgraded the fuser and exit guide to fix this problem, yours is 2 months old so is covered by warranty, contact brother in your country to have it fixed.
