Lexmark 2600 wont feed paper. It gets a quarter of the way through then crumples up.


Hello

Just like any printer brand through time some mechanical parts will need maintenance.

Just open the printer's cover and locate the paper feeder roller. Get a clean damp cotton bud and clean the roller's rubber. Through time it accumulates dirt affecting its traction.

Toshiba 2860.. auto doc feeder keeps jamming.. seems like one side is feeing and other had side isnt or something similar. Any ideasa?


In any doc feeder, the initial two feed rollers and one paper separator pad/roller handle most of the paper transportation. So usually if you have misfeeds, and the paper is not crumpling up, you have a problem with worn or dirty feed rollers. However, if the paper is getting crumpled up, you most likely have a physical obstruction blocking the paper path. My recommendation for when this happens is to take a thick piece of card stock and manually feed it through the paper path on the doc feeder, this usually acts to unclog any jammed paper bits or debris.

Printing pictures photo paper gets jammed half way?


There are many reasons why your photo paper gets jammed, but here the most common ones:

- The photo paper is crumpled, or the edges are fold. Be sure that the paper is completely straightened out before putting it in the feeder.
- Your tray lock is larger than your paper. It is recommended that you keep your tray holder lock the size of your paper. The best way is still to keep a .5cm allowance.
- There is something blocking the feeder which causes the paper to go out of track. Are you sure there isn't a crumpled paper or torn paper left with the feeder?

HTH!

Paper get jammed in the automatic feeder on top of my printer


3 possibilities.
1 If you use this macine to copy labels, there may well be a small piece of a label stuck in the paper path on the crumpled side. Or a small bit of paper.
2, the paper pickup on the crumpled side is 'polished', and no longer feeding the paper at the same time as the uncrumpled side. They can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol. Though that is a temporary fix and the paper pickups should be replaced if cleaning fixes the issue.
3 The fuser film has a tear in it on the crumpled side you need to rule out 1 & 2 before going to three again replaceable but a bit more difficult

Printer wont feed paper says out of paper


you "may" have something stuck on one of the feed rollers - a ripped piece of paper or something. See if you can examine the rollers, and look very carefully, particularly on the side that the paper keeps jamming.

In all honesty though, printers are pretty disposable these days. They're not worth getting fixed, and if you can't do quick maintenance on them, getting a new one is your best solution.

This machine problem can be very involved.
A paper jam as described can be in any locations of the copier.
First of all when the toner-developer falls on the base of the paper feeder, it can contanimate all paper feed shafts and even sensors, and plug connections.
Worn feed rolls can cause the machine to jam. Clean the rollers and see if it corrects the problem.
A bent paper tray can cause the copy to skew, causing jams.
Sometimes the plasic paper path baffles are warped leaving narrow gaps in the paper feed path not allowing the paper to go through properly.
A bad paper feed sensor can cause inttermittant paper feed jams. This sensor is located just above the feed rolls. A involved process to take out without breaking the plastic components.
The machine has paper feed clutches located at the back of the feed rolls. To get to them it is also involved. Sometimes these clutches slip and will cause paper feed problems. There paper feed solinoids may operate intermittantly not allowing the paper feed clutch to operate correctly.
The main board can also cause these types of problems, not allowing the correct signal to operate the paper feed solinoids.
There is so much in this area to locate and isolate for paper feed problems.
If all else fails, call Xerox for a service repair.

When i load paper into the printer/scanner on the right side of the machine the paper crumples up and wont feed thru,how can i correct my problem


check for any paper that's jammed up by the rollers. If this was a heavily used printer, then you might need to get it service or you could do it yourself by ordering a maintenance kit for it. check for jam first though.

Paper jam


If it is getting crumpled in the tray, there is something blocking the paper path.
What I would suggest is taking out the toner and drum cartridge, then remove the paper tray. Tip the machine on it's back and look into the paper feed area for something blocking the paper path.
When it is crumpling the paper like that, the feeder is working fine, just something blocking the paper path.
You can take a minela folder, and gently push it through the paper path to dislodge the obstruction.

Paper Mis-Feeding


Check for any pieces of torn paper in the path, especially on the left side. You can also reach into the slot that the paper feeds into and feel each of the rollers behind the plastic cover; they all should turn freely, pay special attention to the wheel to the left.
