Paper Jam with no Jam

After printing 50 pages on heavy-weight matte photo paper, the printer starts refusing to pick up the paper. Then it says it is jammed, which it is not. Sometimes it will go ahead and print if I apply a small pressure to the paper to push it through. It's tough like card stock. Other times, it just takes it and spits it out. I have the software set to premium photo paper.

    No overload - but I did read some other information about "sanding" down the roller. I could only find one pickup roller - and it was difficult to get to.

    I used an emory board on it, and it picked up and printed another 10 pages before I stopped. I'll keep my emory handy, because I've got another 80 pages for today.

    Nice forum here - Thanks

Another solution: Some generic matte coated papers will leave residue on your priner's rollers causing then not to grip the paper properly. Try cleaning the rollers. This happened to me and I now make sure to use nithing but premium brand name paper.

You may have overloaded your paper feeder with heavy card stock and caused a very tiny jam that you have not found yet so that it will act oddly as it is. Look right up inside unit with a torch and down back where the paper goes in.Try printing on plain a4 agian, place a small stack in feeder, reset paper guides too. Also could be your paper sensor, fixable under warranty.

Glossy A4 paper will not feed. Is it too heavy?

Actually, if printer is new, printer can feed up to 350 grm. But if pick up rubber at paper feeder mechanics had distort/loose thickness, it can't. Try to use 210 gsm glossy paper. Or, if you wish to use 280 gsm, pull down paper while printer grab paper.

Printing heavy weight invitation stock on Epson R200

The card is probably too thick. Try cleaning the feed roller in the Sheet feeder to improve its grip. Check the GSM of the paper is within the spec of the printer.

Won't take in my photo paper!

hi dear

I had to reread your first post the mention of what to do with all the photo paper. I see you mean that you don't use matte photo paper you use matte heavy weight paper. I guess I mean that as a question! That is the only thing that works for me with no smearing problems. I haven't found one that is thick enough for a good feel. I used an avery matte paper that has a coating for photo but it just feels very light. Doesn't smear and looks sharp but very light weight. What brand do you use ?

post in me back
ok,thanks

Printing on heavy cardstock

HP recommends papers with ratings of at least 90 for brightness and 75 g/m2 (20 pound) weight. before u proceed....remove the rear access door to reveal the rollers.Take a slightly wet cotton cloth and wipe the rollers in the upward direction 4 times.Close the rear access door. now do as said - START -PRINTERS & FAXES -CHOOSE THE PRINTER ICON THAT HAS BEEN HIGHLIGHTED WITH A CORRECT MARK. - RIGHT CLICK - PRINTING PREFERANCES - PAPER/QUALITY TAB - CUSTOM -Create a new custom paper size that is dependable on the paper you are using - type a name & SAVE -ok -ok -try printing if the problem still insists the report back and do mention which tool you are using for the printout. if its heavy pearlized paper then i do not think th eprinter would accept it . it maintains its own standard weight to detect the paper.

Epson R1800 refuses fine art papers

Hi Fruitless, Last night I was tearing my hair out trying to get my R1800 to accept some Hahnemuhle Satin 310, and it was just passing through and passing through. About once in 20 trys it would finally print. I was in the middle of making up my own paper profiles for this lovely paper. Anyway, I gave up at about 1:30 am, and went to bed. Today I resumed my attack, and guess what fella, there is a solution. Pass this on to everyone. You did not say what version of Photo Shop you were using. I just got my CS3 a week ago, and if you are using it, you can open a photo for printing. Go to Printing Preferences Dialog Box, > click on Maintenance Tab, and then click on the Bottom button that is labeled as Printer & Options Information. The Printer and Options Dialog Box opens, and there at the bottom is a box that says Thick Paper right beside it. Select or check this box and enjoy yourself thereafter. I did not see this in the User's Guide, but knew there had to be an answer to this problem somewhere. No problems ever since. Best of luck.
