Question about Canon PIXMA MP750 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Feeder won't feed paper. It doesn't jam or anything. The feed motor or whatever it is makes all the appropriate noises but nothing goes in.

    I have the same problem but only with photo paper. 80 & 100 GSM weight work OK but over that I have to use the manual feed which is a real pain. This is only a recent problem and I have had the printer for two years. I think it could be something to do with the wearing of the paper-grab function but would appreciate a definitive answer if possible,

The gears of the printer may have already worn out that caused it to loosen its hold on paper somehow. To save on cost, manufacturers nowadays used hard plastic (which are not durable as metal) as gears for turning components in a printer. Printers last only 2-3 years especially if used regularly. Further, It could also be that the rubber (that which turns to pull the paper out) has become slippery due to coating used in many papers. Try to clean them out using a mild household detergent. Of course, this should be done with the printer unplugged.

Paper not feeding for epson nx400


Check the following:


  • If paper doesn't feed, remove it from the sheet feeder. Reload it against the right side, behind the tab, then press in the tab on the edge guide and slide it against the paper. Make sure the paper is not above the arrow mark inside the edge guide.

  • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.

  • If the paper doesn't eject fully, you may have set the wrong paper size. Press the c:\users\home\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.gif Stop button, then open the scanner and remove the paper. Select the correct paper size when you reprint.

  • If it's wrinkled when it ejects, the paper may be damp or too thin. Load new paper.

  • Make sure you use new, smooth, high-quality paper, that is not curled, creased, old, or too thin. Make sure to load it printable side up.

  • Do not load paper with holes punched in it for insertion in a binder.

  • Make sure you load only up to the recommended number of sheets. If you're printing on both sides of the paper, try loading fewer sheets.

If the paper jams, do the following:

1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.

2. To eject the jammed paper, try turning the Epson Stylus NX400 off and then back on.

If that doesn't work and paper is stuck inside, turn off the Epson Stylus NX400. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the Epson Stylus NX400 back on.

Paper feeds over 50% into printer, makes noises an stops. When I try to see the paper by lifting the lid, it's not there. It's as if its feeding into another area of the printer


One of the leading causes of paper jams is some sort of debris falling into the feeder. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Grab a flashlight and look into the feeder for any foreign objects. If you're willing and capable, carefully lift your printer upside down. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

Paper feeds about half way and then stops. All of the indicator lights come on.


If you get a paper jam, the Paper Jam indicator light promptsyou to clear the paper path. If the paper has just started to feed from thepaper feeder when the jam occurs, pull the paper straight up out of the paper feeder. Open and close the printer cover toresume printing. If the paper jam occurs inside the printer, remove the paper from the output bin. Turn the printeroff, then on. If this doesn't clear the jam, open the printer cover.Remove the print cartridge and cover it.For additional assistance, please contactLexmark Technical Support

There is NO paper jam- and the paper won't feed. We have taken the printer apart- NOTHING hung up- gears are okay- still won' feed paper.


hi...

Most of our printers pull the paper down on one side slightly faster than the other. The printer hardware should even this out when printing. You should also ensure the paper meets the automatic feeder requirements of the printer.

If printing is skewed, feeding multiple pages or jamming, please follow these instructions (use a regular letter size paper to test after doing the steps given below):

Please check to ensure there is nothing obstructing the paper feed mechanism down inside the printer where it is not easily seen. If there is nothing obvious, unplug the printer and remove the paper. Open the front cover and look above the steel rod. You should see a conveyor belt with rubber teeth on it, like a fan belt. Take the bottom part of that belt and move it gently to the left. The cartridges should come out with it. Make sure the cartridges can move fully from one side of the printer to the other. Check also the output rollers on the bottom of the printer for any blockage. If it is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot. Turn the printer off. Next take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the paper feed slot (The manual paper feed slot is preferred, but the automatic feed will do if there is no manual paper feed for this printer) until it comes completely through the printer to the back of the exit rollers. Move it up and down and slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate this may work it loose or you may have to feed the envelope through the front rollers and push your way backward (please be careful here).
Next, take a damp warm cloth and clean the rubber rollers in the automatic sheet feeder. Dust may be coating the rollers there and as they become less tacky, they cannot feed paper correctly.

Saying paper jam dcp-135c brother printer


 Hello there,If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed: Press the power button to turn the printer off. 
Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer. 
Close the front cover. 
Press the power button to turn the printer back on. 
Resend your document to print.

Ensure that: 
The paper is a recommended paper for Laser printers. 
You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder. 
The printer is on a flat, level surface. 
The left paper guide is against the side of the paper. 
You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper. 
The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder. 
Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is against the side of the envelopes. 
Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver. 
You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.

Auto-Feeder Does not feed paper evenly


There must be a small jam in the feeder. You can try sliding a business card or heavier plastic card through the feeder all the way across. Chances are it will push whatever is stuck in there out.
