Paper Not Fed From Tray 2

So, after some analysis, I've found that the wheels that pull the paper into the printer don't work for tray 2. I took tray 1 out and printed to it and saw that the wheels spun in an attempt to grab the paper; however, I did the same for tray 2 and the wheels don't spin. First, what could be causing this problem? Second, is it something I could fix myself? Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is an office printer and we NEED tray 2! Thanks in advance!

    I have the same problem, my brother MFC 5860CN started printing great from both trays and then tray 2 gave out. After reading the post I looked at the feeder wheels and noticed they were not turning. I am willing to get into the printer and try to get the gears back together but how does one do that without ending up with a rather large paper weight? Do you have to completely disassemble the printer?

You have to open the printer to get to the lower part of it which hides the 2nd paper tray and gear/wheel drive.
check the wheel and gears of the 2nd paper feeder.
I guess you have to click the gear back into position.

Canon Inkjet, Not Printing?


Hi Rosa,
There was a paper jam and you cleared the jam, however you missed out to do one other thing. Cleaning the Rollers.

If the Paper Feed Roller is dirty or paper powder is attached to it, paper may not be fed properly.
In this case, clean the Paper Feed Roller. Cleaning will wear out the Paper Feed Roller, so perform this only when necessary.

You need to prepare: three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper

1.Make sure that the power is turned on, and remove any paper from the Rear Tray.

2.Open the Paper Output Tray gently, and open the Output Tray Extension.

3.Clean the Paper Feed Roller without paper.

(1) Press the g0081065_tcm14-774017.jpg (Maintenance) button repeatedly until b appears.

g0081066_tcm14-774018.png
(2) Press the Black or Color button.
The Paper Feed Roller will rotate as it is cleaned.

4.Clean the Paper Feed Roller with paper.
(1) Make sure that the Paper Feed Roller has stopped rotating, and load three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the Rear Tray.
(2) Make sure that b appears on the LED, then press the Black or Color button.
The machine starts cleaning. The cleaning will be completed after the paper is ejected.


This should fix the issue

I'm getting an error code 60.02 on a HP 4014N printer. How do I troubleshoot the problem


An error has occurred while the product was attempting to lift the tray designated by XX. Pull out tray 2 and remove most of the paper. Push the tray into the printer and listen for the lift motor and watch the paper level tab in the front of the tray. If you don't hear the motor and the tab doesn't move, it's possible the printer has a bad lift motor. Remove all the tray 2 paper and look for any paper scraps in the tray. Reinsert the paper and listen for the motor and watch the tab. If it works, great, if not call a tech.

I've had my brother mfc-7440n for over 2 years and it's been working great until this past week. Now, it has a paper jam every single time I try to print anything, causing me to have to remove the...


85% of paper jams are caused by worn rollers . The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease. If you plan to keep your printer,

Replace the pick-up and feed rollers.


Metal Tab Separation- Pull out your paper tray and examine either end where the paper sits in. If any of the corners are held down by metal tabs, this is your paper feed system. Chances are, you only have one rubber roller or one set of rollers arranged along side of each other. Reach in where the tray goes and feel up. You should feel some rollers. They might be completely round, or they might be shaped like a half moon. Clean whichever part of them you can with the solution, and this should stop your paper jams. It might be necessary to turn them, but don't force them if they don't move freely.

Pickup Roller and Separation Pad-

If your printer uses this paper feed system, you should see a small piece of flat or slightly curved rubber or cork. It would be towards the end of the paper tray, or deep inside the paper loading cavity on top loaders. This 'separation pad' rubs against the paper feed roller, so if you find the pad, you've found the roller. Clean it and your jams should stop.


Three Roller Paper Separation System- Pull your paper tray out, and look for a roller on either end of it. If you find one, clean it. Then look inside the printer where that roller would rest with the paper tray inserted. You'll find another paper roller there. Clean this one also. Finally, look further back or closer to the front of your printer (depending on which way your paper feeds) to find another roller or set of rollers. Clean all of these, and your paper jams will go away

Hello. During printing I often can see error message 13.01.00 - paper jam, but really nothing jammed. I have printer HP LaserJet p3005. Thanks


Your printer has a misfeeding problem.
It never fed any paper so the sensor never sensed paper and thinks that there was a jam.
Try using the manual feed tray. If that works, pull out tray 2 and clean the feed roller . Is this printer
up to date on its maintenance? The feed roller might have to be replaced.

My Epson R220 keeps pulling the paper in on the right side only, causing a jam. Any suggestions?


Hi,
Once you place the papers in the tray, adjust the paper holding tray knobs present on either side if the tray such that it holds the paper kept in the tray firmly on both the sides. This will ensure that the paper is fed into the printer in a straight maner even though your printer pulls the paper only in the right side.
I hope this helps in solving your problem.
Thanks

Lexmark E332n- Changed toner cartridge and now off alignment How do you cartridge align


It is fairly common in this model for the paper size guides in the paper tray to shift outwards, allowing the paper to skew feed as it is being fed into the printer,

Pull out your paper tray, and make sure the adjustable paper guides on the left and right sides of the tray fit up snugly to the paper in the tray.

try this, good luck.

When printing should paper be fed from back of machine or from below? Currently paper is being fed from behind without black ink


It makes no difference which tray you feed from, it's a matter of personal preference, if black is not working, you probably need a new printhead, QY6-0049-000. The black is always the first to wear out on a printhead.

Tray error


Since tray 2 works, I'd guess that each drawer has a "paper sensor" that sees that paper is in the drawer. You might pull both drawers all the way out, with a flashlight, if needed, look at the area inside of each where paper is fed and you can compare #2 with #1, since you know 2 is good. You may find a sensor out of place. If it's not something simple like it popped out of place, then you may need to put in a new sensor. Good luck, please rate this if it helped.

Paper tray won't feed paper & I get a false paper Jam code


This might work for you - it worked for me. HP paper was feeding crooked. Checked the "Paper Type/Quality" in the printing options window - mine was set to Photo Paper. When I changed it to Plain Paper, the paper fed evenly. Hope this works for you.
