Question about Kodak EASYSHARE Printer Dock Thermal Photo

2 Answers

Paper feed Printer just wont feed paper! If you manually encourage the paper, it will feed in! Otherwise, the pickup wheel turns, the papertray lifts, but the wheel just spins on the paper and doesn't feed into the printer. Wheel appears free from any oil or dust which may cause slippage. Any thoughts?

    same problem, i could make it work by giving the paper a little push, but now after doing that 10 or 12 times, the paper jams after going about 1/2 inch, makes a grinding sound, stops & a message saying paper is jammed, unplug from power source for 5 seconds then try again.

    It says ther is no paper but there is, then it doesn't even take the paper to print on it. when it does take the paper it spits it out blank, very frustrating since it is not a cheap printer any way

    What the heck it worked fine last time when i used it.

    Hope you can help ASAP

    I do every thing is says but it still doesn't work.

    what next I gotta print my pictures ..

    Same problem here....printer won't take paper and says "out of paper". Everything appears to be working fine but it won't pick up the paper and feed it through. Worked fine before...What do we do now? Wiping the roller did NOT help.

    Yeah, wiping the roller does NOT help. Helping the paper along used to be a quick fix, but now it just jams completely (both amber lights quickly flash, camera screen says unplug, wait 5 seconds, restart, clear paper jam, lather, rinse, repeat)

    I have the exact problem - neither of the two solutions worked. Printer will not draw in the paper - I used to be able to manually force it in, now it jams if I try that. Anyone have another suggestion?

Feed roller is dirty or worn thin, wipe rubber roller with damp cloth.

The problem is the level to lift the paper is not below the plastic plate at the bottom of the paper tray. Correct by doing the following:
1. Remove the paper tray from the printer
2. Remove the top clear plastic lid from the paper tray
3. Insert the paper tray into the printer making sure the silver level is below the plastic plate (the piece that has the cork on it)
4. Insert paper and top clear plastic lid
5. Print

Paper wont feed

there are multiple reasons that paper won't feed into a printer. the pickup roller may be worn and doesn't grip onto the paper, or the printer tray may not be lifting the paper to the pickup roller.

Remove the paper tray and check the guides. Make sure they are lined up on the 8.5 X 11 marks. If it is lined up, try going into the menu of the printer and reset back to defaults.

When printing, the paper in the tray does not feed. It lifts but doesn't catch.

The printer's pickup roller needs to be cleaned or if its worned needs to be replaced. The pickup roller is the little blue rubber roller behind the cartridge. If it still doesn't catch you'll need to strip the machine down until you get to the springs that lifts the papertray. Stretch the springs a bit. This will cause the paper to be pressed against the pickup roller. Re-assemble the machine and try it.

Paper won't feed into printer

Make sure the paper doesn't have a curve in it. Also, fan the pages to make sure they aren't sticking together. Load shiny side up. Try taking about 10 sheets out

MFC-7420 "Change Drum Soon" I have had this message for a while. I purchased a new drum. In the meantime the printer continues to print fine, except we have paper feed problems. Is the drum related to...

the only time i've seen the drum affect paper feeding is if paper jams in the drum unit. i would use your current drum until print quality decreases to an unacceptable level. it will not shut down, and you will not see a "change drum message." if your paper feed problem is centered around the cassette/paper pickup area, you can try cleaning your rollers with water and a soft rag, and also make sure your rear paper stopper in cassette isn't pressing too tightly against the rear of paper stack. best to leave 1/8" gap, otherwise paper will not lift properly to the rollers.

Its caused by the rubber on the feeder wheels getting worn. And the fix is easy. Just peel the flat rubber rings off the rollers, flip them inside-out, and put them back on. Now your paper will feed all the way intot he machine. ( you can order replacements the next time)

Other: Dont use alcohol on these rubber parts, it only dries them out and makes it worse, you can wash them in soapy water though.

Use higher grade heavier paper, its a bit more expesnive but wont wear out your printer with jams and dust.

Most folks (including myself) think the rollers are actuated when printing, actually the paper tray causes the rollers to pop down onto the paper stack when you close the tray all the way. you cant see it, its like trying to watch the refrigerator light go off when you close the door! :)
