Plotter wont recognize edge of clear films when loaded from a roll or sheet. recognized plain paper fine


I would check the sensor on the carriage that detects paper. It might be dirty enough that printer cannot detect the subtle edge of the clear film. It is the blue light that turns on on the bottom of the carriage when you load paper.

T1100 unable to detect media edge. replaced line sensor, carriage PCA. Cannot calibrate line sensor. Panel reads calibrate sensor to black but does not print pattern and says "return error: 2".


I have seen this error occur when the carriage does not move smoothly left to right...are the shafts properly lubricated and the carriage belt in good shape (not frayed or teeth missing)?

Also there are special paper considerations for the calibration to work...Bright White Inkjet Paper is recommended., not just plain paper.

Kodak hero 5.1 cannot detect paper edge


Bought a Kodak Hero 5.1, full price, two weeks ago, spending an hour on each of our laptops and tablets to get them to talk to each other. Worked like a charm!
Then came the rain and the humidity and the message "Unable to detect paper edge" and two hours faffing around and fanning the paper (thx Blondepoison) and not taking a sledge hammer to the darned thing.
The shop will take it back in for "repairs" for ten days, but that's not the point, Kodak, is it?
Solutions: take it back to the shop and get another brand. Or wait two months for the dry season.

Kodak ESP 3250 Printer shows message "Unable to detect edge of paper" and paper just goes straight through


I've had this problem with my esp 3250 that has become progressively worse over past year. I have tried every fix available online from driver, cleaning, power, etc. My printers default quality was set to 'draft' (just to save ink) which obviously speeds up the printing and I've found that if I use 'normal' or 'best' quality, it seems to help the printer detect paper edges, I think bc it slows down physical printing process? go figure but it's gotten me around a few times when I've needed hard copies immediately. Also, changing to heavier bond paper, 92 or better helped with edge detection. I'll finish current ink and not buy another one of these:(

Trying to change paper size from A4 to 8.5x11 on a Xerox Workcentre M123


  1. Pull out the paper tray.
  2. If necessary, slide the paper tray edge guides so that the guides are open.
    1. To adjust the side and rear guides, pinch the guide lever on each guide and slide the guides to their new position.
    2. To secure the guides in position, release the levers.
  3. Load the paper against the left-hand side of the paper tray. Paper can be loaded either short edge feed or long edge feed.
  4. If necessary, slide the paper edge guides so that they just touch the edge of the paper stack.

    NOTE: When loading standard size paper, set the edge guides onto the notches on the paper tray to match the paper size.

  5. Close the paper tray.
  6. Set the machine to detect the paper size automatically, or manually specify the required size.

    NOTE: Paper sizes detected by the machine vary depending on the Machine Administrator setting. See the Related Items below for additional information.

  7. If the type of paper has changed in the paper tray, then the paper type must be changed on the Control Panel as well. See the To modify the paper type on the Control Panel section below.
Normally just the guides need to be set correctly in the paper tray, The tray size sensing switched may be bad or the actuator on the tray may have slipped position.

PRINTER DOES NOT DETECT PAPER EDGE


Have you tried "fanning" the paper before loading it? This fixed my problem after a 6 hour battle, downloads of all firmware and restarting infinity times.
