Paper eject problem

When I send multiple pages to be printed the first page does not go out all the way and then when the second page starts to print it prints on the bottom of the first page. How do I fix this problem?

  • Yisrael Broder Dec 20, 2006

    I uninstalled the driver however in trying to install the driver once more I encounterd an error that the driver is 16 bit and the computer is 32 bit. When I tried installing the NT4 driver it didn't work. I did install through plug and play but I don't have any of the soecial features that came with the driver!!!

    I got help from HP installed the correct5 drivers and the printer still doesn't push the first sheet all the way out causing the second sheet to get stuck with the end of the first!

This printer has some plastic pushers below the front cover at point where the paper is ejected. If these get broken, the page does not ge pushed far enough to eject properly.

Dissconnect printer from usb port. Go to add/remove programmes and uninstall the printer driver. Insert your printer driver cd rom and re-intall driver and connect printer when prompted. This should work

    Make sure you are not allowing the Windows generic driver to install, if you haven't got all the relevent menus in the printer properties, like clean and align heads, then it's the wrong driver.

    If your on NT4 then windows 2000 or maybe XP should work.

    Make sure correct drivers are installed; from here

Multiple Pages Feed through the Printer - HP Support

https://support.hp.com > ca-en > document
The printer picks up or feeds multiple sheets when printing.

Will not print from the computer to the printer. I brought up a picture and pushed print and it just pulled in the paper and it was blank

* Check your warranty. Call for support.

*** Following is for information only.***
* Brand, Model for specific solutions.
* Computers and printers perform many functions.
* Just printing B/W documents are a thing of the past.
* Just printing a document requires the user to identify:
* Size of paper to be used. A4, 5x8", 8x10, banner, etc.
* Quality of paper; Plain, semi gloss, bright white, photo, etc.
* Orientation of document or picture; Portrait or Landscape
* Multiple copy.
* Size of document; Standard paper, Multiple (expanded) poster, Shrink (Reduced to fit page), Reduced to wallet size., etc.
* Color shift (effects) Print in grey scale.
* Print in reverse for T-shirt transfers or window posters.
* many more options depending on the printer. (some print on cakes)
* The point is that these or most of these have to be set up by the user EACH TIME you need to print something. The printer may be set for poster sized pictures but you just want to print a simple letter. This poster setting (depending on how many sheets per poster) may be the upper right corner of the document is blank. It did print but it started in an area that does not have anything to print.
* Another issue with printing (more common) is how many sheets are you printing. Depending on your CPU speed, each page needs to be processed (rendered) to be accepted by the printer. My Lenovo ideapad takes 2-3 mins to render 1 page. Printing 15 pages (or copy) takes over 30 mins to render before it prints the first sheet.
* Which order of print? Was the last page printed first? Is the last page blank?
* Wireless printers also take time to transfer data to the print buffer. This is also depends on your router or WiFi speed. (or network)
* To check your setup use the "Preview" option. Not how the document is pictured on the printed sheet. Pre-view saves on wasting paper on miss prints due to incorrect settings.
* Check your printer manual on setting up for a specific paper, document size, quality, and other issues.
Aloha, ukeboy57

PS, the issue of lost connection (WiFi) will stop the print. Eject the last page (partial print). Some machines will eject page only after a restart or reset.
* Perform a "Test Print" using the printer test mode (to check if the printer is out of ink.)
* Perform a print of a single page letter from the computer to test the connection to printer.
* Use the computer to check the printer app. look at the ink levels. Perform a system check of the printer operations.

Reading no paper paper tray is full

  1. Check the display for an error message. If the display reads "Clearing paper from printer," the engine has detected a jam and is attempting to eject the jammed pages automatically. These pages will often be blank.
  2. Check the display for "Performing PRINT/STOP TEST" or "Performing SERVICE TEST." Either of these messages indicates that the printer is going through a test procedure that may eject blank pages.
  3. Reduce the amount of paper in the input tray if the printer is feeding multiple blank sheets at a time. The printer will pull extra pages through if the input tray is overfilled.
  4. Replace the paper in the input tray with the correct size if needed. If the 4600 printer detects the paper as an incorrect size for the print job, it may eject the paper without printing anything on it.
  5. Replace the ink cartridges if certain colors are blank on the page. Replace the black cartridge if printing a black text document that is coming out blank. The printer may attempt to print even if the ink level is low or empty, but will unable to print anything on the page, causing it to come out blank.
  6. Remove the sealing tape from newly installed cartridges. The tape covers the print heads and should be removed before installing the cartridges. If the tape is left on, it will prevent ink from getting on the pages as they print.
  7. Press the "Check mark" button on the control panel to enter the printer menu. Run a diagnostic so the printer can attempt to determine the cause of the blank pages printing. Press the up or down arrow to select "Diagnostics." Press the "Check mark" button. Press the "Down" arrow to highlight "PQ Troubleshooting." Press the "Check mark" button. The printer runs a diagnostic and returns to a ready state when done.

Lexmark 5400 series printer won't grab paper for printing


Whenever the printer doesn't pulls the paper please pull the pack of papers, browse through the papers with your finger and put them back gently.If it doesn't work it means the wheels that pull the paper are worn and you need to replace them.

For the second problem, this is not a printer problem but a software problem, please specify which software do you use so we can help you, as each software has individual options to print multiple pages. It will also be more logical to post the problem in the specific software area.

Good luck,

Printing Problems

What type of print job are you sending to the printer.
This sounds more like a data stream problem than a hardware failure.

What printer language are you sending to the printer.

Can you attach a print to file that fails on your compute for me to analyse?

What model printer are you using? What PC? What operating system.

Also, make sure the feeder rollers on the exit side of the printer are clean and round. As in not pitted or very slick.
