    When printing the paper pulls into the printer and then stops I looked at it while testing the paper feed button. The rollers on the top of the feeder pull it in and the rollers at the end are moving. But the rollers right in the center of the printer don't move at all and I can see where the paper stopped. So it never gets touched with ink. Can this be fixed or is it time for a new one?

Sounds like there is something jammed in the paper feeder, or maby its the paper feeder itself. Check to see if the path the paper follows through the feeder is completely clear. Sometimes paper is left in the feeder from previous paper jams.

I'm trying to print but it keeps coming up with an error message paper jam, remove jam paper and press start. There's no paper jam and it won't print. I have try talking out the paper from the feeding tray...


Please remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer driver software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
If the printer shows a jamming error then check the input of the paper feed as there can be some foreign objects that is obstructing the detector opto-coupler or the detect switch. clean and check or the sensor is faulty.

The printer keeps saying that there is a paper jam when there is not.. Also some times when it trys to print it will jam and the page will be torn down the middle.


Check the machine carefully, sometins a small sliver of paper is caught in a critical place in the printer and will give the paper jam message. If you paper is being torn it is most likely due to an uneven feed caused by feed wheels that are slipping on one side while the other side still feeds normally. Clean all the feed wheels in the paper path with a Q tip soaked in Isopropil Alcohol. Also make sure that your paper guides are set to the correct widths.

Paper jam while printing on BROTHER MFC-290C all-in-one


hey

try this
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Paper jammed, upon removing paper, paper does not


My CX4800 developed the same problem. It was an excellent machine until then. I tried everything I could think of, and finally decided it must be the rather large feed in rollers at the right of the paper bin (one below and one above the paper) that had worn too smooth to pull the paper in. It works fine if I will give the sheet a "push" when it starts to go down

If it doesn't feed any paper at all (even regular sheets) and you already have tried loading just 1 sheet it still doesn't feed it...means that it is an issue with the hardware itself particularly the paper sensor. This is usally caused a paper jam and clearing out the jam in the incorrect manner. If your printer is still within the 1-year warranty from the date of purchase, I recommend that you contact Epson technical support for a replacement or service center referral in you area if beyond warranty period. They may also provide you with other options suitable for you needs

You probably have a sticky paper feed sensor or a small bit of paper stuck under or around the sensor. Unfortunately the sensor is really difficult to get too without pulling the machine apart, but can be done if you take your time. The sensor is visible looking into the machine just adjacent to the printhead when it is parked behind the metal support
and if u have any lines on the paper when you print, it is most likely paper fluff or a hair struck under the printhead. Put a small soft cloth on the paper feed platen and run the printhead over it gently. Turn the printer off and then open the cover. Turn the machine on and when the printhead moves off the cleaning station, pull the plug out (this won't hurt the machine). then place the piece of cloth on the platen and slide thge printhead over it. Don't force anything. There will be mild resistance but not much.
If this seems too much, then a service agent might be your best choice but expect to pay around $50-$60 for the job.

Line down the right stide in the megenta area of the self test and blurrred print on the right side


Step1
If you're setting up the printer or changing the toner or ink cartridge for the first time, double-check the instructions to make sure that you installed the cartridge correctly and, for new printers, that you have removed all the pieces of cardboard or plastic packing material. 
Step
2
Check to see whether paper is feeding from the paper tray. If it's not leaving the tray at all, try feeding a page manually (if that's an option) or using a different paper tray. Sometimes a problem with the tray can be traced to a broken spring or a piece of plastic. 
Step
3
If paper is feeding from the tray but jamming in the printer, examine where the jam is occurring and then inspect the printer carefully to see if you can find what is causing the problem. A piece of paper, for instance, might be blocking the paper path. 
Step
4
If paper is feeding through the printer but coming out blank, check to see whether the printer is out of toner or ink. A defective toner or ink cartridge could be the problem.

Everytime I try to print to my PIXMA 9000 I get an error from the print spooler that the printer is not responding. THe print job starts to print, stalls after a few lines.


1. First, clean your printer. Get some spray-n-wipe cleaner and a clean cloth and clean the entire inside of the printer. Also ensure your paper isn't dirty. Now print a test page. Does the symptom persist?
2. Remove all jammed paper. Check the paper tray first. Look closely at the paper rollers nearest where the paper exits the printer; this is a common source of jams. If you’re trying to print labels, they will often jam just before exiting the printer.
3. Try to print a test page. Does the printer still jam? If you can find no source of the jamming, check the printer's message display window and refer to your user’s manual to look up the printer error code.

OR=

1. Check the printer and/or the software to see if "manual feed" is selected. If manual feed is selected, the printer may be looking for paper in another tray.
2. Reseat paper. Ensure printer is on-line. Check for paper jams or obstructions.
3. Likely suspect: paper-out sensor is damaged or broken. Consult a computer repair shop.
