Screenwriter 3 "paper out"

Started yesterday out of the blue, had been working fine earlier in the day- printer says "paper out", though paper is in tray. Tried turning off printer and unpluged it a few times but that hasn't worked...And on the printer list all the other printers are checked and decheckable, but the Screenwriter is checked but the printer itself on the list isnt decheckable or selectable. I thought maybe it got kicked off the server somehow, which runs through my computer, but it still reacts (lights up then goes back to ready/idle & paper out) when we try to print from any computer linked to it. Help!

Remove tray, is there a lever sensor there? is it freely movable ? in other words there is a loose piece of plastic which should be able to go up and down freely, check if it's stuck, is it broken, are the tires able to come down ( sometimes it is with the tire assembly).

Is the tray set to the correct size ? if you have letter in the tray but the stopper in the back is moved to Legal the paper has a gap in the front therefore the sensor does not read the paper.

These are the easiest things to check, can you make a copy in the By-pass? if yes the problem is only in the tray area.
It may be a bad sensor.

False paper out message

An 'Out of Paper ' error message displays on the product control panel display, and the product does not pick up or feed paper from the photo tray.

Try to reset the printer:
  • Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet.
  • Disconnect the USB or Ethernet cable from the back of the product.
  • Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
  • After 30 seconds, connect the power cord to the back of the product.
  • Connect the power cord directly to an electrical wall outlet.
  • Connect the USB or Ethernet cable to the back of the product.
  • Try the print job again.

Problem with my Screenwriter 4

With most laser printers whenever I see this problem It means that you had a paper jam but did not get all of it out. something is impeding the straight flow of the vellum. Most likely there is a piece of vellum stuck somewhere inside that you cant find.

Samsung ML 2510 printer won't feed paper

I have experienced the same problem . . . a little earlier this evening. I took all the inner components out, took apart the toner cartridge, I thought that the gearing was very hard to turn on it and on the inside of printer, paper feeding etc... and that is wear the loud noise is coming from. Out of desparation, I shook it to hear if anything internally was loose and there was and still is, I would not say its the best solution or by any means a permanent but you may be able to dislodge the debris from the gearing and be able to print. After it was dislodged from my printers gearing it has worked again. Though I believe it's temporary. I am looking for a guide or how-to on opening the printer casing to physically remove the debris. If you know of a guide let me know and I am sure it would help you too.
