Check the inside of the printer, ensure that there is no paper or foreign object stuck, sometimes they go undetected and they can affect normal printer feeding.
Try pulling out the paper tray and check the paper feeding mechanics underneath the printer.
Usually feeding problems are mechanic, if you cannot fix them in this simple way you will need to take printer apart and check feeding traction mechanics, this is usually a job that is better done at a repair shop.

Phaser 7400 bypass feeder feeding cardstock much too fast


You need to make sure you set the proper paper type for the tray you are using. (Plain Paper feeds much faster than card stock)

Also recommend you use the bypass tray and open the rear door so the cardstock goes straight out the back of the machine and not delivered to the top.

My office has the bizhub c360, and when I put paper into the bypass tray, it prints from the main tray instead of the bypass tray. The settings on the printer are for bypass tray, the settings for my...


Hi the machine could be defaulted to print from the main trays if you have the same type paper being fed from the manual feed same size paper then it will automatically take it from the default trays
IF you take the paper out of the trays and put it only in the manual feed will it print and take it from the manual feed also you have to tell the machine when you use the manual feed what size and type of paper is in the manual feed once you tell it what paper and type of paper like card stock you then need to make sure when you go to print that it is set on your computer with manual feed and type of paper must match what is set on machine

Canon mp250 paper will not feed snags on something roller works but will not feed


I had a paper feed problem with a Canon MP 250 and solved it this way. (not my own)

After many attempts t clean the feed rollers etc. I tried the following.

I cut a piece of card stock about two inches wide. I fed this sock from the front to rear and carefully worked the card stock in and out and from side to side (flossed it) and dislodged a drywall screw !!

I realize that having a drywall screw lodged in the paper feed is not common, however this "flossing trick may help to clear the paper feed path in other situations.

Print wedding announcements and the print is not straight


Card stock on an HP can be a nuisance, due to the paper feed path. The stock has to curl around the platen.
Some things to check: Make sure you are telling the print driver you are using card stock. It should be in the printing preferences as paper type. The printer will respond differently, knowing it has the heavier paper. Also make sure that your paper guides are adjusted to fit the smaller stock. Just putting in 5.5 x 8.5 paper into an 8.5 x 11 tray may cause it to skew.
I am assuming that you are already telling it to print high quality, as it is for a wedding announcement, but make sure that you are. Slowing down the paper feed speed by putting it into high quality mode can help.
Your printer is an older model, so it could be that the rollers are wearing down, and it just can't feed the last bit as well. You could try to print it in "landscape" mode. Turn the paper 90 degrees in the paper tray, so that the 8.5" is the feed side. This will allow the printer to have a better grip on the paper as it goes through. A word of caution with this method, though. HP's have a 1/2 inch margin at the bottom of the paper where it can't print. Turning the paper 90 degrees will force you to have a side margin of 1/2 inch. Currently, your bottom margin has to be 1/2 inch. I don't know what your layout looks like, so I don't know if you can turn the paper.
If you are the one getting married, the congratulations, good luck, and mazel tov! (Have to cover all the basis).

How do i load card stock paper in my copier...it jams.


Hi,

card stock is tricky to run do you have a bypass tray this is not a paper tray it is a tray where you can put 1 or 2 copies of paper in it? It is on the side of the copier if you have one try that.

Good Luck

HP LaserJet 5550DTN jams at transfer unit


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Hi,
I m not sure what the specification of the paper type you are using however if you are using card stock than you should use manual feed Tray and in the printer driver properties you should select paper type as Card-Stock to make sure there is no print quality issue.

Most machines refer to the bypass tray as tray 1. You might want to make sure there is not a jam in there.
