The paper is pulled through the printer by cogs on each side. Try cleaning them with a small brush like a suede shoe metal brush or strong bristled toothbrush.

HP C7280 wont print custom size card stock 7.25 x10.25 wont feed or paper jam, however will print when fed on the left side but no guide to keep paper straight. how to correct this issue, Ive cleaned


Your question does not provide all the information necessary to absolutely resolve the issue. By now I suspect you've already resolved the issue or given up. Perhaps someone can use this info.

Need to know: Operating System (Windows 95/98/Vista/XP/7/8), Application (Word, Paint, Firefox, etc), type of job (jpg, pdf, text, etc.)

There is no short answer possible; but, I may be able to help with a generic answer. I can't help on Apple but I suspect it's the same as Windows, (and Unix, Linux, OS2, etc.).

Provided the Printer works proper on normal 8 ½ x 11 stock (print media) then it is not a printer or Queue issue unless it is just confused. As a printer technician I have seen this resolved by rebooting the machine(s) and trying to print again. If that doesn't resolve the issue you need to know:

The application you send the print job from tells the Queue what stock (letter, legal, card, envelope etc) to expect. The Queue, a component of all versions of Windows, is created when the printer is initially installed on the computer. The Queue holds print jobs and then sends them on to the printer when the printer tells the Queue it is ready. Some applications are more robust allowing more options than others. However, printing from inside a browser is frequently sketchy. If you're printing from an application that is different from the one that created it you may face an issue of the printer not getting the correct stock information.

Very Important: First before you attempt to send the print job check the settings in the app to insure your job has the right paper stock selected. Then, as you prepare to send the job from the app to the Queue before you hit the final "Print" button, check the "Paper Source/Size/Media" boxes in the "Printer Properties" to make sure your sending the right stock information. If that doesn't fix it; try to save your project in a format readable by another application and try to print it from the other app.

Note: 1. Print jobs are served to the printer by the Queue one at a time on a FIFO (First In First Out) basis. Sometimes print jobs get hung up in the Queue. A hung print job will block all subsequent jobs until the hung job is cleared. When a print job is sent and nothing happens (no printer activity or error messages on the screen.) look in the System Tray for a printer icon. Open it up and see if there are any jobs hung. If so cancel them and start afresh. This may require a reboot.
2. Print Queues can (rarely) become corrupt and must be deleted and rebuilt.

There are still variables too numerous to mention.

Whew! I've never tried to help resolve this issue in a post. Good Luck!

Paper pulls to the right, jams, won't print, tried different paper still won't print


Hi,
Sounds like the feed rollers need cleaning.
Clean the feed rollers, lint free cloth,bottled water.
wait for them to properly dry

Revolve the feed roller bar as you clean them, to clean the feed rollers all the way round, remove all particles from them.

Check you ADF grips are set correctly, if not you will get mis-fed sheets. check the tray is sat properly too or mis-feeds.

Check paper size is correct in print properties too.
Should be good then
Try print.

Regards
Richard.

Paper size


Okay, go to your printer folder Start/Printers Right click on your printer (Officejet 6310) and click on Properties. You will see a button near the bottom called Printing Preferences. Here is where you choose your paper. You can make your choice here and choose to make it your default settings (click Apply to make the new paper your default to print your invitations...you will have to change back after). You may change the quality of print and paper type as well since the default setting won't provide the quality of print you desire. From here it's pretty straight forward. Feed your invitations into the paper tray as you would normal paper and try a test print for quality control. Once you've got the desired output, print the rest of your invitations.

HP 6200 without telling it to print, feeds and jams continually


I already encounter that problem lately. when you print your documents, the only response of the printer is paper jam. feed and jam.

try this tip if acceptable of your situation now.

only to do is copy your documents by edit button and then select all or highlight all that your going to print and then right to copy

and then, open a new documents page set up if needed.

and then print it without saving your file because that already save.

I have a lexmark E120, great little printer just went to print and it was down to one sheet of paper, I got a batch of papers to feed in, as I was printing a large doc, and in a split second it started...


Hi,
In the back of printer you have door. Open it and there you can clear jam. Remove paper but slowly and easy. Close door and it will work fine.
Good luck.

HP PSC 2355 All-in-One Operating Problem


Introduction When the all-in-one detects a paper jam, the display will read, " Paper jam: Press OK to continue ." The computer might display the following message: " There is a paper jam (or misfeed). Clear the jam and press the Enter, Resume or OK button on the HP PSC. " This document will assist in correcting paper feed problems such as paper jamming, print slanting, and multiple pages feeding into the all-in-one. Clearing paper jams CAUTION: All paper jams must be removed from the back of the all-in-one through the rear access door. Pulling the paper from the front of the unit rotates the paper feed roller in the wrong direction and can cause damage to the all-in-one.
  1. Turn off the all-in-one and unplug the power cord.
  2. Turn the all-in-one around so the back of the unit is facing out.
  3. Open the rear access door:
    1. Locate the tab on the left side of the door and press it toward the right. The door will shift slightly to the right.
    2. As the door shifts to the right, pull the door out slightly to release.
    3. When the door is released, gently remove the door by sliding the door out and to the left.
    Figure 1: Removing the rear access door c00212276.jpg
  4. Inspect the pressure rollers on the access door. They should be clean and rotate easily. If needed, clean the rollers with a soft lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water (distilled water preferred). If the rollers do not rotate easily, they may need to be replaced.
  5. From the access door opening, gently remove the jammed paper.
  6. Remove the paper stack from the paper supply tray. Discard any paper damaged or bent.
  7. Re-stack the reload the paper into the paper supply tray. Push the stack into the tray until it stops.
  8. Re-seat the rear access door:
    1. Insert the two posts on the right of the door into the holes on the right side of the opening (as shown in the figure below).
    2. Press the tab on the left side of the door toward the right. The door will shift slightly to the right.
    3. As the door shifts to the right, push in the left side of the door to lock it into position.
    Figure 2: Rear access door posts c00212277.jpg
  9. Reconnect the power cord and turn on the unit.
Causes of recurring paper feed problems If paper feed problems occur repeatedly, one of the following might be the cause:
  • Something is obstructing the paper or print cartridge path. Open the cover of the all-in-one and check for obstructions.
  • The rear access door is unlocked or improperly seated. Follow the steps above to remove and re-seat the access door.
  • The paper width guide is not positioned against the paper. Adjust the paper width guide against the edge of the paper.
  • The paper is not supported. Paper should be flat and smooth with no folded, torn, or rough edges. Some glossy and/or coated papers, or reused paper (already printed on one side) can experience a higher incident of paper feed issues.
  • The paper tray is not fully extended.
  • The paper feed rollers need cleaning. Over time paper fibers and dust will stick to the rollers and should be removed. See instructions for cleaning the rollers below.
Paper jam message displays but no paper is jammed The print carriage might be jammed. Follow these steps to correct the problem:
  1. With the power on, lift the print cartridge access door. The print carriage should move to the access area located on the right. If the print carriage stays all the way left, reset the unit by unplugging the then plugging in the power cord. If the carriage still does not move to the right, continue with the steps below.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
  3. Remove both print cartridges.
  4. Push the print carriage slightly to the left and then to the right to verify that the print carriage is not jammed. If the print carriage will not move, check for obstructions under and around the carriage.
  5. Close the print cartridge access door.
  6. Plug in the power cord.
  7. When the " Insert Print Cartridges " message displays, open the print cartridge access door and insert the print cartridges. Verify that both cartridges are seated correctly and lock into position.
  8. If the error recurs, contact HP for assistance.
Envelopes The envelope flap can move with the grip of the rollers and cause paper feed problems. Use envelopes with a rectangular flap and/or tuck the flap inside the envelope when printing. The print is skewed or crooked A small amount of skewing is not unusual with printers. When there is too much skewing, the following steps can help reduce the amount.
  1. Adjust the paper width guide to fit against the edges of the paper stack.
  2. Verify that the rear access door is properly seated and locked into position.
  3. Remove the rear access door and clean the paper feed rollers (see the instructions at the bottom of this document).
More than one sheet of paper feeds in at the same time Several paper caused problems can result in more than one page feeding into the unit. Check the list below:
  • Reused paper (paper already printed on one side)
  • Torn or folded paper
  • Textured or coated paper
  • Unsupported specialty paper
To determine if the paper is causing problems, try using clean, undamaged sheets of plain white 70 - 90 g/m2 (20 - 24 pound) inkjet paper, such as HP Multipurpose or Bright White paper. If this paper feeds correctly, the problem is probably with the other paper. Cleaning the paper feed rollers Over time dust and paper fibers will accumulate on the paper feed rollers. This can cause paper feed problems. Follow the steps below to clean the rollers: Figure 3: Paper feed rollers c00212278.jpg
  1. Turn off the all-in-one and unplug the power cord.
  2. Remove the rear access door (as describe above in this document).
  3. Clean each roller using a clean lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water (distilled water preferred). Rotate the rollers to clean the entire surface.
  4. Verify that the paper feed rollers on the rear access door are clean and rotate easily.
  5. Re-seat the rear access door.
  6. Plug in the power cord and turn on the all-in-one.

PRINTING PROBLEMS


With all due respect to "sanjeevverma", solution #1 is nonsense; the Brother HL-5250DN paper tray is self-centering; in other words, there is only ONE position for the paper to sit in the tray ... the PROPER position (centered BTW); let's break it down:

paper not feeding correctly - if lollydoll is talking about the wrinkling, this a known problem with this print engine with no real solution; the feed mechanism design is extremely sensative to the moisture content of the paper (ie, if the printer is being used anywhere but a temperature and humidty controlled office -- good luck); thicker paper (eg, 24 pound paper - ask the Staples guy) may solve the problem if the temperature and humidity in your house isn't too far off the office norm (72°F and 50% R.H.); two items tucked in the corners of the manual (but not talked about by their tech support staff) are (1) paper path pressure release levers in the back (they are blue - check the manual to see how they work), and (2) there is a "thin" setting for the paper type on the printer's properties window; it has helped a little at my house; the only real solution is to print at least three copies of your documents; apparently getting the fuser up to temperature is key to getting non-wrinkled printouts.

paper doesn't feed at all - the roller at the front of the paper tray must be incredibly contaminated; use DENATURED ALCOHOL and cotton swabs to clean the roller and the other parts it touches; you can unplug the printer if you're worried about it

printing when no paper is present - BAD! this means either (1) there is a scrap of paper torn off and blocking the sensor - which is unlikely because the print-time diagnostics would catch that the sensor does not "cycle" when the paper supposedly passes through, or (2) the sensor is defective - in which case toss the printer and buy an H-P (spend at least $300, eh!)

don't get me wrong ... I LOVE my HL-5250DN (although I hate wasting all that paper and toner) ... but my first three lasers were HP's and they NEVER wrinkled or tore my paper ... I bought the Brother because it was twice as fast and printed duplex for half the money of the HP ... now I'll pay the difference in paper and toner but "c'est la vie"

What do you mean picking papers. Do you mean feeding the paper, or printing with certain types of paper?
