Question about Dell Inkjet 720 Printer

Paper no longer feeds at all

Paper started feeding in crooked, eventually started jamming frequently, now won't feed at all. I feel sure it needs repairing and don't know where to have it done. Yellow pages?

    I have the same problem with my Dell inkjet 720 printer. The paper feeds but only on one side and then of course it gets jammed. Should I look for a new printer or do you have a solution?

Open the top where you exchange the cartridges, then check to see that those little cogs keeping the paper in place are'nt oily or jammed, If worse comes to worse, take it to a curcuit city or a geek squad.

My dell 2350 dn feeds to much paper causing jam


Step 1: Try fanning the paper at the feed edge before placing it in.
Step 2: Ensure that the paper is placed in with the edge curl up. When holding a bunch of paper between two fingers, the paper will naturally have a curl to it. It should be placed in "happy" (Edges up).
Step 3: Inside the printer's paper tray and where the feed mechanism is, locate the feed rollers and static feed pad. These will all be rubbery or "foam"-like. They should always be slightly tacky when rubbed against, however paper dust will eventually cause them to become slippery instead. Rubbing alcohol can be used to clean them with care and a Q-tip and recover the slightly rubbery, tacky feeling, thus resolving misfeeds.

Canon Inkjet, Not Printing?


Hi Rosa,
There was a paper jam and you cleared the jam, however you missed out to do one other thing. Cleaning the Rollers.

If the Paper Feed Roller is dirty or paper powder is attached to it, paper may not be fed properly.
In this case, clean the Paper Feed Roller. Cleaning will wear out the Paper Feed Roller, so perform this only when necessary.

You need to prepare: three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper

1.Make sure that the power is turned on, and remove any paper from the Rear Tray.

2.Open the Paper Output Tray gently, and open the Output Tray Extension.

3.Clean the Paper Feed Roller without paper.

(1) Press the g0081065_tcm14-774017.jpg (Maintenance) button repeatedly until b appears.

(2) Press the Black or Color button.
The Paper Feed Roller will rotate as it is cleaned.

4.Clean the Paper Feed Roller with paper.
(1) Make sure that the Paper Feed Roller has stopped rotating, and load three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the Rear Tray.
(2) Make sure that b appears on the LED, then press the Black or Color button.
The machine starts cleaning. The cleaning will be completed after the paper is ejected.


This should fix the issue

Paper feeds crooked then jams?Used less paper different paper it just pulls the paper in unevenly the jams. Help


Check feed roller for contamination, fan the paper to seperate sheets and then make sure that you are using paper of the following standard:
Paper Type Thickness Weight Single sheets
(plain paper) 0.003 to 0.004 inch
(0.08 to 0.11 mm) 17 to 24 lb
(64 to 90 g/m²)

Make sure you are using paper supports and feed guides.

Paper feeds crooked and results in a paper jam.


Assume every time this happens something microscopic fell into that tiny pinch of an area. I have found everything from a Tostito crumb to a chip of drywall blocking my paper feed. Flip your machine over and shake it around til the little bugger falls out.

Only 8 1/2 by 14 paper jamming at the DADF


Does it feed sometimes, and just jams frequently, or every single page?
Are you sure the paper size in the tray is set correctly? Otherwise for frequent or constant jams when the paper simply stays in the tray, then the feed rollers are likely worn out.

Paper Jam


Open up the doors and blow some compressed air throughout the paper path (where the paper travels up). Make sure to blow air onto the sensors, because paper dust can coat them, causing false jams.

Does the paper get out of the tray at all? There is a feed roller that feeds the paper up into the machine; if you remove the paper tray you can see this roller -- it's big and gray and has grooves across it -- above where the paper sits toward the front of the printer. Blow air onto this roller as well, and if you have either D-ink or a rubber rejuvinator, clean the roller with a lint-free cloth.

Also make sure the paper is snug in the tray and not bent or crooked.

This machine problem can be very involved.
A paper jam as described can be in any locations of the copier.
First of all when the toner-developer falls on the base of the paper feeder, it can contanimate all paper feed shafts and even sensors, and plug connections.
Worn feed rolls can cause the machine to jam. Clean the rollers and see if it corrects the problem.
A bent paper tray can cause the copy to skew, causing jams.
Sometimes the plasic paper path baffles are warped leaving narrow gaps in the paper feed path not allowing the paper to go through properly.
A bad paper feed sensor can cause inttermittant paper feed jams. This sensor is located just above the feed rolls. A involved process to take out without breaking the plastic components.
The machine has paper feed clutches located at the back of the feed rolls. To get to them it is also involved. Sometimes these clutches slip and will cause paper feed problems. There paper feed solinoids may operate intermittantly not allowing the paper feed clutch to operate correctly.
The main board can also cause these types of problems, not allowing the correct signal to operate the paper feed solinoids.
There is so much in this area to locate and isolate for paper feed problems.
If all else fails, call Xerox for a service repair.

Paper Jam


there maybe some obstruction on the paper path, inspect visually any sign of abnormality in this area, replacing the ink would not cause this.

it is touching something thats why t is crooked, either small piece of paper, dirt, caked ink, or hardened ink on the roller, feeding unit may have some plate mis adjusted, misaligned feeeding tray as well. try this
