I have seen this when I have stored/used my printers in a humid location - in my case, my basement home office. The paper edges curl enough to interfere with the grippers and/or cause paper jams.
Make sure you have new, dry paper (perfectly flat) in the tray and try again. If this solves the problem, you may want to try to relocate your printer to a dryer location.
Good luck.

Dell 922 saying there is a paper jam


First try this. Turn off the printer, remove all the cartridges, drum, open all the doors and remove all the trays. Now verify that there's no actual paper jam by exploring through the inside of the printer. You can use a blower to blow any dust or pieces of paper, etc.. from the printer. Now use the manual feed and put in thicker paper several times (push in and pull out). Again reinstall and reconnect every components and boot the printer. If the actual printer's paper sensor isn't broken or stuck or twisted, this will definitely clear the paper jam message on the printer.

If the problem persists, please download this small text file and follow the instructions (click here). Open the link, click "Download Now" button, wait for 20 seconds and again click "Download File Now" link and read the instructions and follow step by step.

Good luck.

Kodak 5300 AIO Paper Jam


Hi there ok Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

What grade/brand of A4 paper will work in the printer? When I tried some "inkjet compatable" paper the machine does not recognise it.


Dear Sir/ Ma'am,

Any 80 GSM paper will working in the printer however I recommend you peform the following steps:

I kindly request that you do a Firmware update from the Kodak website and then proceed with the re-calibration of the unit . The link is as follows: www.kodak.com/go/drivers
Installation Instructions:
This firmware version improves the following:
a.. Error recovery
b.. Scanner performance
c.. Calibration for media detection

CAUTION: Turning your printer on or off during this procedure will render your printer inoperable. Wait for "Upgrade is complete. You may now use your printer." to appear on the computer screen.
1. Download the firmware file to your desktop.
2. Verify that your printer is:
a. Connected to your computer and turned on.
b. In the Ready state.
3. Double-click the *.exe file on your desktop, then follow the on-screen instructions.
4. Wait for "Upgrade is complete. You may now use your printer." to appear on the computer screen. This may take several minutes and the printer will turn off and on during the process.

It will require you to also recalibrate a media sensor in the printer after you perform the firmware update. To recalibrate the media sensor, you will need to do the following:
a) Load ONLY ONE sheet of Kodak Bright White Inkjet Paper, if not available please use another high quality inkjet paper. (A4)
b) Press the COPY & CANCEL buttons on the printer simultaneously.
c) The printer will feed the single sheet of paper through the printer.
d) The Media Sensor will be re-calibrated, however it will not give any indication that it was. There will be no message saying that it was successful.

Yours sincerely,
CViveiros,

Kadak Easy Share 5300 printer. Screen reads "Please wait"-stuck


Try this one
Take out the inks and printhead
Leave the cartridge door open, then unplug the power cord from the back of the printer while the access door is open
Close the cartridge door once the cord is unplugged
Reconnect the powercord, turn on the printer, then your printer will look for your printhead "Printhead missing or not installed correctly..."
Then put everything back. make sure it will snap in to place. Then print a calibration page, then scan it. This is just over writing the error message.

Printer jam...i took the back off i see no paper jamed anywhere. I removed the paper and reinstalled it still the light come on saying there is a printer jam


To resolve this issue please do the following:
1. Open the printer access door(the gray part)
2. remove the cartridges
3. remove the printhead, to remove it press the release latch located on the upper left edge of the printhead where you put the black ink
ff17ccd.jpg
4. Then close the printer access door WITHOUT the printhead and the cartridges.
5. unplug the printer and wait for 30 seconds and plug it back
6. it will give you a missing printhead error
7. install the printhead first, close it and then it should give an error missing cartridges. install the cartridges and if you no longer have the error upgrade the firmware by going to www.kodak.com/go/downloads
I hope that helps. If not contact kodak technical support for further troubleshooting.
