Paper is stuck in printer

I was trying to print on tracing paper (in foresight this wasn't such a good idea), and the printer started spooling, but then the paper got stuck. I tried printing another page, hoping that the second would push the first one out, but that one got stuck too, and made the tracing paper even more stuck. I don't know what to do, and I'm afraid of digging into the printer to remove the pages in case anything breaks. What should I do? Please help, any suggestions are welcome.

    Paper jam! Most of the time when I have had this, I have been able to pull it out. This time it is all the way back to the point where the paper makes its return path. I am not afraid to tear into one but could use some instructions on how to get to this point in the printer.

Epson printer 1400, is printing vertical blue lines through my prints. How can I eliminate them?

If the lines are vertical to the direction of the printhead movement, you need to clean the paper rollers and the small "pizza wheels" of your printer. Also check for any traces of stuck paper in the paper path. I recon you ars not using genuine inks, right? Try to slow down your print speed by selecting a best quality setting.
If the lines are parallel to the printhead movement, your printhead is either clogged our stuck.

Paper Jam error

Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry.
Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print.
Also make sure thatyou have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job.
Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..

Hope that helps!

Printer stuck on spooling

Try the steps below to fix the spooling problem:
  1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)
  2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.
  3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)

Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

While printing, paper jams. the sheet pulls through initially, but then while printing, the paper scrunches up and the cartridge jams.

It is likely that there is a small piece of torn paper inside that is causing the paper to bunch up. Try a can of compressed air to clean out the interior and trace through the route the paper takes. Look for anything the paper could get stuck on.

Good Luck!

Printer only prints one page of multiple page document

hi..

You may try to change the spool data format:

1. Click on "Start," "Control Panel," "Printers and Other Hardware" and "Printers and Faxes."

("Start," "Control Panel," "Hardware and Sound" and "Printers" for Vista...)

2. Then, right click on the Lexmark printer icon and left click "Properties."

3. Either on the "Advanced" tab or the "General" tab for some models, there is a "Print Processor" button, left click it.

4. This is the spool format setting. Under "Print processor" it should be set to "Lexmark *** series print processor." Next, under "Default datatype," select "NT EMF 1.008."

5. Click "OK" and exit back out to your desktop.

6. Try printing again.

I have a 7 year old Lexmark 2381plus dot matrix printer. Recently, the print on the last page of the 3 part form has become very hard to read (very light). I changed the ribbon and have the form setting...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

It would seem you posted twice.

Based on your description, the printer is working, it is not a form issue, the printer head is good, an adjustment might be needed and it works, there is no reason to replace the Lexmark 2381plus printer even if it is 7 years old (not unless you would want to).

To the faint printing on the last of the 3 pages:
  • the take-up spool/wheel drawing the ribbon is not working (most likely). The ribbon is not moving hence the printer head is not striking fresh ribbon area. Check the ribbon cartridge, it may be stuck or the driving spindle where the ribbon's take-up spool/wheel locks into. It may need a bit of cleaning and/or lubrication;
  • the printer head is slightly adjusted away from the paper. Normally, there is a mechanical lever/adjustment that sets how many paper & duplicates are fed. Adjust for 1 only.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

What you need to do is manually clear the print queue (Spool).
To do that create a new text document with notepad and type in the following 4 lines:

net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.shd
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.spl
net start spooler

now save the document and rename it to QueueCleaner.cmd (or whatever you want to call it, just keep the .cmd at the end).

Now just double click the .cmd file whenever a print job will be stuck and will not delete.

BTW, you can just type the same 4 commands under Start -> Run if you prefer.
