Question about Dell 924 All-in-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Paper feed problem.

I have a Dell 924 and there must be something in the paper path. The paper feeds just short of the print head then stops and wrinkels up. When the paper is removed you can feel a nick where it was stopped by something. I cannot see anything and cannot get to that part of the path to see if anything is there. How do you get to the entire paper path? I have tried to feed a light cardboard to see if it would push out the foriegn material but to no avail. I have also tried to manually feed heavy stock in the reverse direction but cannot succesfully do it.

    If I place more than one sheet in the feed it pulls all the sheets and jams? what do I do to correct the problem

  • bunjubeans Nov 18, 2007

    Some debris (pine needles, dirt) fell into the printer where the paper feeds in. Since then the printer tries to pull the paper in to print but it gets stopped just short of the ink cartriges. I dumped out the debris and can no longer hear/see any more in there, but the paper still will not feed through. How can I clean it out better?

On "print" command, paper feed


hi

you may have something in the paper feed area.. unplug all .. lift printer upside down and shake lightly, see if something is lodged in the paper feed area..
if this is not the issue, perhaps the roller(s) is off centre and requires adjusting

send me 4 thumbs up please.

I attempted to print shower invites on vellum paper


1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.
