Hello chippyprem,
If the paper is stopping due to a paper jam and it doesn't seem like anything is in the way try looking around the inside of the printer near the cartridges (I'm assuming the paper goes from the back to the under side of the printer - judging by the pictue) for anything, even small, and remove it.
If you've ruled that out and it just seems to be stopping on it's own, your best bet would be to contact the manufacturer of the printer, if it is still in warranty, have it repaired. If not, I would suggest buying a new one, because alot of the time it's cheaper to buy a new printer than to get one fixed.
Hope this helps!Please rate :)

My printer Lipi 2280+ printing properly with 15*12 and fanfold 8.5*12 paper,but when i am using paper width slighly smaller than it less than 8.5 width printer gives paper with error>kindly suggest

You see the "Paper Width Error" on the 2280+ because the print job being recived by the pritner is wider than the physical paper which will cause the pritner to print on the platten, in order to rectify the problem.

  1. Ensure the print job on the system is less than 8.5 inches wider
  2. Perhaps move the paper in the tractors to the right
  3. Disabling the Paper Width Sensor will clear the error but may cause the printer to print on the Platten which may reduce print head life, the Paper Width Sensor can be disabled in the following way;
    Start with the printer Powered OFF
    Hold Down the ONLINE button and power the printer ON keep ONLINE held down until you see ASCII80 ASCII136 on the top line of the display
    Press the button under NEXT repeatedly until you see APW on the top line of the display
    Press the button under APW
    Set APW = OFF

    This will disable the APW sensor and you will not see the Paper Width Error

Eject Error message

I would suspect that the paper path has been changed via the control panel. If you are using continuous paper fed in from the tractor this should be Tractor 1 (unless you have optional tractors).
If the printer shows something like SINGLE on the display, it is for sure that the paper path has been changed.

Disconect the pritner from the computer system, and power the pritner off and ofter 10-15 seconds power the printerback on again.

  • Take the printer off-line by pressing the Online key
  • Press the Setup key
  • Press the key under "Paperway" in the display
  • Select Tractor 1 (or Tractor 2 if fitted/required)
  • Press the key under "Set"

  • If the menu shows as locked power the pritner on holding down SETUP to unlock the menu.

    Printer says there is a paper jam and there is no paper in there.

    first thing you need to do is will do the overriding the error

    1. open the pritner access door fo the printer
    2. if the printhead or ink cartirdges already in center remove the ink cartridges and the printhead
    3. If the printhead already removed close printer access door., Turn Off the pritner then after 10sex turn It own.

    4. Now your pritner should detect no printhead installed not paper Jam., If you still recieved paper jam error without the pritnhead installed you need to have a printer replacement call kodak toll free number 1 800 421 6699 ext 05

    5. Now if the message is pritnhead not installed., reseat the printhead and the ink cartordges then close the pritner access door., If your ecived same message paper jam., You need to replace the printhead you may also call kodak 1 800 421 6699, and have your free printhead replacement.

    Most of the time overriding the error message solve the problem

    Loud clicking noise

    we need to perform a reset, it will take the pritner to the factory settings and this may help you,
    the process of reset goes like.
    unplug the power cable from the pritner >
    then press and hold down the # key and 6 key >
    while pressing and holding these keys plug in the power cable back into the printer and wait for 20 secs and then release the buttons..
    after this the printer will re-initialize and this might take few minutes.. so wait untill it finishes and follow the onscreeen instruction as well.(if any)

    It keeps coming up with an error hardware alarm +0664 +131-- 000003+0381+0673 then you have to turn it off and back on again then it starts printing and then just stops in the middle and comes up...

    The hardware alarm being indicated on the 2280+ indicates the pritner is detecting problems with moving the print head. I would recomend trying the follwoing;

    1. Remove the ribbon from the printer, check this for damage or jamming. A jammed or damaged ribbon may prevent the print head moving. Perhaps try subsituting the ribbon for an alternative.
    2. Check for any paper jams, or other items with may heve been droped into the pritner which may obstruct the print head movement.
    3. With the printer powered OFF slide the print head backwards and forwards it should be free to move with the printer powered off.
    4. Clean the carriage shaft, this is the shaft which the print head moves along. This shaft should be clean of dust and dirt. It should NOT have any oil or other lubricant on it.
    5. Clean the timing strip, there is a thin transparent strip which runs accross the wodth on the pritner next to the carriage shaft, this is the timing strip. Take care not to dislodge this thin strip, clean any dust off this strip.
    6. Check the print head gap to ensure that the print head is not catching on the paper.
    Finaly power the pritner off and back on, the error will not clear untill the pritner has been powered off and back on again.

    Depeninding on your findings after trying the above, if the problem persists, I would recomend checking or perhaps replacing the following;
    • Timing strip
    • Timing station
    • Carriage motor
    • Carriage shaft
    • Ribbon Drive
    all these items can affect the free movement of the print head.

    Paper Jam

    If it truly stops halfway then it must be obstructed by seomthing. If it only gets a short way past the pick up roller then it may be something else. A little trick for removing obstructions is to fold your paper in half or even a quarter so it is much thicker and stronger and try to feed that through. This can push through any obstructions (assuming they aren't too big). If it still gets stuck see if you can manually turn the main gear found to the side of the carriage and try to push the paper through that way (hence pushing through your obstruction). If your paper feeds through fine doing this then you may have another issue.

    Good Luck.
    Please rate my advice, good or bad.
