Postcards causing printer jam

I am trying to print postcards (avery matte white 51/2 by 41/4"- heavyweight- 4 cards per sheet) and every time the printer jams and will not print or it sends through a paper with nothing on it. The jams occur 4/5 times. I have tried different printer settings, but nothing seems to work. It has worked previously on a card from a different company.

I think the card is too heavy or too thick for the machine as when it prints it has to turn the paper. If the card is too rigid it is unable to bend causing a paper jam. Suggestion is to try a less grade of card.

Thanks J

How do I print cardstock with Samsung ML-2510?

Hi
I found a manual for your printer here:
http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/MM/200605/20060510151657234/um_ml-2570_manual_eng_060328.pdf

and under print media, it suggests limits of 60 to 163 g/m2 for the 2 trays. If you get some 160 g/sm2 card which is quite readily available, I think you will find it much lighter than the Avery business cards card, which from memory come in around the 200 - 220 g/sm2 level.
Even Avery quote this card as "heavyweight card stock", and although the say will print on all laser printers, it's my experience that they do not. Only on a laser with a flat paper path.
Cheers

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.

Can't print bus. cards

You have solved your own problem with out even knowing it. The heavy paper is what is causing your problem. The solution to most problems is not to panic step back take a few deep breaths. Then kindly ask God. PS Also Thank God. I am just a Poor Sinner but God is my witness.

Photo printing

hi doug

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
oke, thanks

Avery Ink Jet Magnetic Sheets - 3270

It worked fine for us on an Epson. We printed about 40 sheets fed one at a time. Do not stack the sheets in the feed hopper, they stick together because of the magnetism.

There is no template because the material is not die cut. It is just full 8.5x11" sheet size.

Repeated paper jam in fuser

Fuser's orange roller is not meant to be wrinkled, if this is then I would recommend you replace it (just slides out) pic below
b4eead5.jpg If printing on card, you need to feed via manual bypass and exit from the back, not on the top, aka the "face up tray." Tray pulls out from rear. Rear tray will only stack a few card sheets at once.

Setting on printer's control panel must be set to card/heavy paper type on manual bypass tray

Their may still be some card in fuser causing jams.

Please rate as FIxya or post back,

HP psc 1315 all in one-printing cards

Make sure you check the settings in the print driver. Sounds like your paper size settings do not match the size of the paper that you are printing onto and you are actually getting a false jam because the machine is seeing a different size paper then you ahve in it.
