This is sort of scenario is usually caused by dust inside the printer. Dust has a way of preventing the sensors from detecting paper. Also it prevents the rollers from having a firm grip on the paper while picking paper. Sometime one side grips well and tries to pick the paper while the other doesn't resulting in a jammed. I will suggest you get a long handle brush and try to reach as far inside the printer as possible and brush (from the back and front). If you have a blower you may also use it to blow well into the interior of the printer (If you do not have a blower the brushing will still do if you do it well.) This, if properly done should do it. Brush especially the rollers etc.

There is something preventing the printer to grab the paper to keep it from printing. I have checked to make sure that nothing is inside there, and there isn't. It rolls like its going to print,...


Try to remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. If you are physically able and willing, carefully turn the printer upside down. Any foreign objects or debris that may have accidentally fallen into the feeder should just freely roll out of it. If feeder is clear, place the printer down. Open the printer cover and make sure the paper path in the cartridge area is free from obstructions. Close the printer cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reload some paper and try to print again.
If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

It keep saying that there is no paper in the front tray. But I keep on putting the paper in the front tray.It just isn't catching the paper (in order for it to print).


Check the printer to make sure there is nothing stuck in the printer. Take out the ink cartridges and shake the printer something may fall out.

Not printing


You probably have paper debris stuck to the underside of the print head.

While you are printing, pull the lead from the back of the printer leaving the head free floating and unlocked so you can slide it back & fore. Get a piece of kitchen roll and fold it until it's the size of the track beneath the print head slide the head to the left, place the folded kitchen roll flat down in the print track, slide the head over the folded kitchen roll until it appears on both sides of the head. Grab both ends of the roll and lift it toward the head. Slide the roll sideways left and right to physically clean the bottom of the print head. Try not to tear it as it will trap under the head. let go of one end and slide the head away until you can pull the roll out. It should have a lot of ink and gunk on it. Plug the printer in and the head will reset itself.

Now because printing has been non existant, you'll need to "Prime" the heads. Use the maintenance software and click head cleaning, when finished do not allow the nozzle check pattern to print. Carry out 3 more head cleans cancelling the nozzle check after each one by clicking [Finish] until 4 cleans have been completed. Then allow the nozzle check pattern to print and it should be back to normal. If not perfect, carry out another "Prime" as above.

Hope this helped.

Sharp Electric Cash Register XE-A203. I just put a new paper roll into the register because it was out of paper. The register screen is showing all numbers and transactions but when the paper comes...


Hi whitwall,
Please make sure that you have the right paper roll.
Your machine takes a thermal paper roll, which means it actually burns the print into the surface of the paper as opposed to printing with a ribbon or ink roller like other makes.
The thermal paper will only show a print on one side of the paper, in other words if you do indeed have the right roll and it is in upside down you will get a blank printout.
An easy way to see if it is the right paper hold the roll in your one hand and scratch a line with the thumb nail of your other hand accross the surface of the roll,if you get a black line on the paper then it is the right one, otherwise you have what we call a "bond" paper roll and it will not work in your machine.
If you got the "black line" with your thumb nail, then lift the printer head arm (green lever) place the roll in position with the paper rolling out from the bottom of the roll towards the front of the machine, pull the paper out past the catch mechanism and close the printer ****.Tear off the excess paper and replace the printer cover.
You should be ready to go ahead with sales.
This should solve the problem .
Regards
Gavin.

Paper either just rolls through without printing or won't catch and sits there


This has occured to a 2.hand printer I just bought. First head was clogged very much. I disassembled the head, used a paper towel soaked in luke warm water to clear off the over-gooed printing head surface. It is quite easy to get the head out and back in. Unfortunately my cyan ran out during clean-cycle, so I can't say if it also cured the passing paper problem.

HP 7660 "Print Cartridge Cradle is Stuck" Message


I was having same problem but it was a paper jam all the time and then it started to state Cairrage Jam. And what was happening was the unit the cartridges sit in was not going all the way to the right. A little nudge and you could feel it move. Closed lid and sometimes it would print but eventually it would fail. Just replaced but I suspect if you can get to the cairrage you could clean/repair whatever was keeping it from going all the way to the right.

Hope that helps!
