There is a mis-alignment in the paper feeder, get it realigned by the technician, or just service ur printer.nothing to worry.

My printer says paper jam but i see no paper jam

There might be paper jammed internally or the spool might just be stuck. On the back of your printer should be a removable panel(it may be on the bottom depending on you make and model). After removing the panel if no pape jamer is visible try rotating the spool and reconnecting.

My printer says paper jam , but i dont see any. when i hit the ok button the spools spin real fast but the light continues to blink.


Down inside the paper chute there is a little arm orlatch. When you put paper into the printer, the paper pushes down on thisarm. This activates a sensor that tells there is paper in theprinter. The arm is very thin and made of cheap plastic. If you tryto use too thick of paper, or someone forces paper down into the printer, theycan bend the plastic arm off to the side. If it catches on the side andsticks, the printer will think there is paper inside of it all the time. It will then get a paper jam error, even though it is able to run a piecethrough during the initial turn on. If you look down in the paper chuteand the arm is stuck off to the side, try to get some tweezers or thin pliersand gently tweak the arm back into the middle of the opening.

Says needs paper,but has paper. I've turned it on and off, still says same thing.


The spool of the printer has a job with a different paper size of the charged in the tray.

Delete the spool in the computer or in the printer. Ensure the size is 8,5x11" or A4.

Whenever a print job is sent to my dell 3100cn laser printer, ?Load tray 1? appears in the small window of the printer. I loaded the tray several times but it doesn?t work. Please guide me through the...

You sent a paper size different of the requested by the printer. Just load the requested size or delete the spool.
Some PDF downloaded from internet has A4 or 8,5x11", maybe is requesting one of this sizes.

If you can not delete this message, delete the spool using the printer manual in the control panel of the printer.

I want to print an oversized long paper (1meter length) but printer setup limits custom paper size. Need custom driver or other solution.

Sorry but there is no solution. If the paper length is longer than the specification allows then the printer will jam every time based on the paper sensor timing. It will see the longer paper as the paper having stopped and result in it thinking it has jammed.

Printer is slower to print than it used to be, what have I done?

Depends on the meaning of "slower": if it takes longer to begin work on the page, check the spooling settings (Printer -> Properties -> Advanced -> use spooler to accelerate print / send directly to printer).

If it takes longer to process each single page, it could be a higher resolution is selected, or a different paper type (photographic paper is usually faster). Also, the PC might be overloaded.

Changing paper on HP Designjet 5500 Plotter

Step 1. Install a roll of paper on the spool, and install the spool on the printer. The fixed end of the spool should be on your right side as you face the printer. The paper should come off the top of the roll.

step 2. open the window and support it with the built in support. Lift the blue handle, located just to the right and above the spool adjacent to the black roller.

Step 3 Pull out about a yard of paper and feed it in front of the black roller and in back into the printer. You really don't need to be precise, the path will accept the paper. Keep pushing the paper until it comes up the the top, then pull the paper from the top.

Step 4 If the edge of the paper is cut square just line it up with the front edge of the printer and on the right there is a blue edge guide mark. If the paper has not been cut square then pull it out far enough that it reaches the spool and line the left and right edges up with the roll and also the blue line.

step 5 Lower the window and the handle. The printer will attempt to install the paper. Respond to the questions that appear on the screen and you should be good to go.

I can walk you through it by phone if you need more help.
