There hads to be a tray in the printer to do a new paper feed.
Else flip a few pages say almost 20-30 and place them from where the printer takes a feed to print. It will automatically take a new feed.

This may be a mechanical problem- perhaps the belt which pulls the printhead back and forth is slipping a cog tooth in the drive mechanism. Check this belt for proper tension, and that the cogs are in good condition.

There is also a home sensor located at the left-hand side of the printhead movement area which sets the home position of the head, and from this, the start of printing is determined. If this home position sensor is defective, this will cause problems. One certain Epsons, this sensor was a switch, and this would become erratic.

These are possibilities to check...

SOURCE: I have an HP C7280 AIO printer. Everytime I print,

Generally, there are printer set up programs that will let you chose to put a blank sheet or to not do that. If you have a disk or manual, look for the set up utility and go thru the tabs to find paper handling or something similar to that. There should be a check box you can clear to stop the blank page.

I hope that this information was helpful. Have a great day.

Preprinted 4 part paper crunching up when being printed in epson lq680 printer


Mustafa:

The printer is not meant to use multi-copy carbon invoices. The cause of your problem is the double-feed prevention pad below the paper pickup roller. When the first form is fed, the double feed prevention pad will stop multiple paper feeds. With multi-page carbons, the paper feed roller is trying to feed the form, and is pulling the top page of the form into the feed rollers while the double-feed prevention pad is stopping the bottom form from feeding and the top and bottom pages are sliding because of the carbon paper between the sheets. The only solution that I know of is to buy a printer with a tractor feed and pre-printed fan-fold forms with tractor feed strips on the sides of the forms.

Top marging changing (HL 2170W)


try cleaning the feed roller above the paper tray.. but if you have problem when the image is getting lower, it means your paper feed faster than the image trans, I would suspect the feed solenoid is giving you the problem..as it's not release on time... to fix it, you will need to open the whole printer cover and side motor assy..

One label printing over two label forms


Always check to make sure the printer is advancing one label at a time by itself before printing. If it does then you know the printer has a good read on the label size. Then if it misaligns when printing then you know the problem is in the printer driver because the printer is only going to do what it's told to do.

So best is to turn printer off, power up, press feed to see if one label feeds ok. If the label feed is off at this point then the printer needs to be calibrated which is done by pressing and holding FEED while turning the printer on.

Hope that helps !

How to do a reverse form feed in Visual Basic 6


Two things to consider:

1) The printer itself must be designed to handle reverse form feeds. I am not sure how many these days are.

2) If you're printer can handle reverse form feeds then it should be a simple matter to send the appropriate ascii code to the printer to initiate it. Much the same as if you wanted to have the printer do a line feed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

Okidata Microline 320 Turbo Printer - forms don't maintain registration


On older printers, tractor feed edges separate from the page while printing. Sometimes this can be a fluke, but other times it may point to a mechanical problem. Try taking the paper out of the printer and hitting the form feed button a few times. Watch the printer’s tractor feeds to make sure they are moving and are in synch with each other. Some printers use belts to move the tractor feeds and, over time, these belts wear, break, become smooth and slip, or become misaligned.

Environment can also contribute. Paper stored in a warehouse can weaken in intense heat or moisture. Carbon copy paper will especially cause this type of problem as one sheet's feeder edge can break away from the rest and peel slightly back. This will in turn slow the feed on one side as the edge buckles slightly under and may even skip to release pressure causing major alignment problems.

Paper feed problem


You need new feed components. Feed rollers and retard rollers or pads that stop multisheet feeds.
