Hello rst,
You could have a mechanical problem of course.A bad sensor or paper lift motor.Walk up to the device and verify that each paper tray can be selected and shows paper is present.If that checks ok then it may be that you are sending a print job document that the device "interprets" to be of a size that does not match any of the paper sizes that exist within the device. If it is a PDF file, make sure that "CHOOSE PAPER SOURCE BY PDF PAGE SIZE" is NOT checked.it should be off. Also make sure "FIT TO PAGE" is on. And Microsoft Word documents can be a problem. Word will try to override the settings you select from your normal print driver. Make sure the print settings in Word are correct. When a print job comes to the device there is alot more data than the document being sent. There are instructions as well and if those instructions make the printer believe that the only way the document can be properly printed is to have a paper size that is currently unavailable then the printer will prompt you to load paper. At the screen of the printer will be a picture of itself and it will indicate the bypass tray as the source to load paper as the only alternative. Again this all based on the fact that all the paper trays work normally when you walk up to use it as a copier. I hope I helped. :-) Let "FIXYA" know if I did please. SPINAL

Red light flashes, screen says "load correct paper: A4." The paper is alreay loaded. I cannot print.


When <LOAD CORRECT PAPER> appears on the display, the size of the paper in the paper cassette or multipurpose tray is different from that of the paper specified in <PAPER SIZE> for <CASSETTE> or <MP TRAY>. You need to load the correct size paper or change the paper size in <PAPER SIZE> for <CASSETTE> or <MP TRAY>.
Check if the size of paper loaded in the paper cassette or multi-purpose tray meets the paper setting specified in the machine.

check the following:
1. The paper size specified on the printer driver screen
2. Paper loaded in the machine
3. The paper size set in <PAPER SIZE> for <CASSETTE> or <MP TRAY>

Canon ipf605 paper error


Here is what I've found out by trial and error.
Paper Roll Won't Load:
    -Usually occurs when the roll is less than 50% full
    -Printer will give the error "paper loaded askew"
    To Correct This:
      - Press and hold Stop until Job Cancel comes up on the
      screen
      - Press Menu
      o Scroll Down until Adjust Printer menu comes up
      o Press right side arrow next to OK button
      o Scroll down to Manual Band Adjust and press right side
      arrow again (or select one of the other adjustments)
      - Select Yes and press OK
      - Load paper roll - make sure paper is straight
      - When asked (printer will beep) select Plain Paper and
      press OK
      - Let paper load
      - When printer starts to print press and hold Stop to cancel
      job
      - Paper should now be loaded
      When all else fails load a new roll.
      This would be a temporary solution until the sensor is fixed.

Paper keeps shifting during loading and eventually gets jammed every time


Seems like the rollers are either dirty, or worn out. Probably the latter.

Says "Out of Paper" even when paper is loaded.


unplug the printer then try to Aline the paper back up then turn the printer back on if it does not load take some of the paper out and try it again. If you can't get it to load try adjusting the load tray, if you still can't get it to lad go to www.hp.com enter your model and select loading paper problem and it will run a self diagnostic test of paper.

Quits printing and screen says "need service"


A: Power the printer on and press the Load/Eject button to see if
paper will load. If no paper loads, make sure the paper isn't
curled or creased, isn't too old, isn't loaded above the arrow on
the left edge guide, and that the paper isn't jammed in the printer.
If the Paper Out light is on solid, reload the paper, making sure
the paper edge guide is adjusted to fit the paper's width, and then
press the Load/Eject button again to see if the paper will now load.
If the Paper Out light is flashing, turn the printer off, reload
the paper, turn the printer back on, and try pressing Load/Eject
again to see if the printer will now successfully load the paper.
If the printer still will not load paper, power the printer off,
remove the printer cable, and make sure all of the packing materials
are removed. If the problem persists, the printer may need to be
sent in for service and you should contact the EPSON Connection for
assistance.

Printer loads paper incorrectly when trying to print


in the tray where you put the paper, there are two pieces of plastic that site on the side ,,,,, bring them close to the paper as to touch the paper.

this way the paper cannot go left or right when loaded and now will go in straight.

this oughta do it.
