Question about Canon PIXMA MP130 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Paper Feed is Jamming

When I go to print a document, the paper bunches up on the right side (facing printer) and doesn't get fed into the printer at all. All that happens is my paper gets ruined and I waste ink on nothing. There isn't anything visible blocking the feed rollers, but I can't figure out what else could be going on. Any suggestions?

Noise while printing - Diagnosis Pt 1

<p>Unexpected noise (such as clicking, thumping, or grinding) from an branded device are heard during printer operation.<br /> <br /> <span><b>NOTE: </b></span><br /> Noises can be caused by a number of things, some of which may not be addressed in this document. This document deals strictly with the isolation and potential resolution of known noises through troubleshooting.<br /> <p>The following table describes some of the noises to be expected in a printer functioning normally:<br /> <span>Noise occurs:</span> <br /> <span>Additional information:</span> <br /> During power-up<br /> When the printer periodically makes humming and buzzing sounds as the carriage assembly moves around on the right/left side of the printer, the printer is actually cleaning the ink cartridges. This is a normal operation for the printer. This sequence may happen in the following conditions:<br /><br /><br /> <ul> <li> <p>Before and/or after printing<br /> <li> <p>During power on <br /> <li> <p>After the printer has been on standby/idle for some time<br /> <li> <p>After replacing a cartridge<br /> <li> <p>In the middle of a long print job (such as printing many photos)<br /></li></ul> During printing*<br /> <ul> <li> <p>Paper pickup: There will be some noise during paper pickup due to the movement of rollers and gears.<br /> <li> <p>While printing: The unit has printed a few lines or the paper has been fed into the printing area.

How to make duplex copies with a Brother MFC-240C printer

The Brother MFC-240C is a well-performing multifunction color printer. There is a lot that it can do, but one limitation it has is the inability to make double-sided copies. If you need to make a duplex copy of something, you can do it manually by re-feeding the paper once you've copied the first side.

After the first side of the page has been printed, let the paper sit for a minute or so to make sure the ink has dried. Then, put it back into the paper tray on the top of the stack. Make sure the back side of the page (the side that has not been printed on yet) is facing down, and the lead edge of the page (the edge that was fed out of the printer first) is facing toward the inside of the printer, rather than toward you.

Once the paper is set, push the tray back in and print the document or image that you want to appear on the back of the page. If you are printing multiple pages, position the paper so that the page you want printed on first is on the top of the stack.

The MFC-240C was not designed for duplex printing, so you may run into some issues with it, especially when you are using very thick or very thin paper. With very thin paper, the ink may bleed through to the other side of the page. With very thick paper, you may have to let the paper sit for a longer time after the first side is printed, because the ink could take longer to set and dry.

When printing, the paper gets pulled slightly to one side (to the right when facing the printer) and ends up not being fed through.

Hp l7590b no paper load

hi friend,
Step 1Turn on your printer. Make sure it is plugged into an electrical outlet and installed properly.
  • Step 2Wait for your printer to stop. Do not load paper while it is printing or running any kind of maintenance operation.
  • Step 3Prepare your paper. Make sure your paper is right side up (glossy, whiter or label side should be facing up). Make sure all the pages are lined up together, like a deck of cards.
  • Step 4Locate your paper tray. Some printers have a manual tray and an automatic feed tray. Refer to your printer’s documentation to find the automatic feed paper tray.
  • Step 5Place your paper in the tray. For 8.5 by 11 inch (standard) paper make sure the 8.5 inch side will be fed into the printer.
  • Step 6Set the paper guide. This is the movable piece on the side of your paper tray. One side should move and the other should not. Move your paper so it touches the side that does not move, and slide the paper guide so it touches the other side. Some paper guides have markings so you can set it to the exact measurements if you know the size of your paper.
  • Step 7Set the paper thickness lever. Refer to your manual to determine which setting this lever should be at. Generally, standard paper does not need a different setting and special media like glossy photo paper or envelopes should use a thicker setting. You can usually access this lever the same way you access your ink cartridges.
  • Step 8Let your printer know what it is printing. If you are using a special media, then set the options before you print. Click “Properties” on the print dialog before you print something. From there, change your media type to whatever kind of paper you loaded.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • Fan your paper back and forth before lining it up to load into your printer. This prevents static build up which is the leading cause of paper jams.
    • If your printer doesn’t feed the paper correctly at first, try making slight adjustments as it tries to feed to find the right spot.
    • Refer to your manual for in-depth paper loading instructions.
    • Many printers have a resume/cancel button. This is to be used when you need to load paper mid-print job.
    • Do not overload your printer.
    • Avoid non-standard media types such as loose leaf paper with holes or folded or wrinkled paper or anything with affixed stamps or stickers. These can jam your printer.

    Printer prints ldocuments but will not print


    In Word you create the envelop, specifying the dimensions and the way you will load it (face up or face down). Then you remove the sheets of paper and place a stack of envelops, and adjust the feeder so that the envelops won't drift while they are being fed.

    Hope it helps
