Question about HP DeskJet 1220c InkJet Printer
I have a 1220c that operates perfectly except in a single situation: When I attempt to print brochures with a heavyweight paper, the printer cannot seem to pull the paper into itself on a reliable, consistant basis resulting in the printing usually beginning off the page and ending 3/4 of the way through the page. Doesn't matter if manual fed or auto. Doesn't matter if 1 page of paper or stack. Any help would be appreciated!
The 1220c does print heavy stock although if you look in the back you will see the slot where you put the heavy sheet into, sucks but thats the only way, at least to print perf card and heavy stock. hope this helps.

Try cleaning the rollers with auto belt dressing.

This 1220 C printer is designed to print on greeting card paper and heavy photo glossy paper. I have the same problem and think it is a pickup roller. I dont know how to change the roller.

Hi it would appear that the paper is too heavy for the machine check the manual as it will have the spec on what paper can be used and also how heavy the paper could be.
Sorry I cannot be anymore help but try using a paper that is about 10-20 gsm lighter.

These defects normally occur when printing is attempted on unsupported media or when the printer is set up for a different type of media than the media that is actually loaded into the machine.
Check your media and ensure that it is suitable for use in the printer. Refer to the printer's user manual for information on supported media types and weights. Is the media you are printing on supported in the printer?
Ensure that the paper type is set accurately on the printer operator panel (go to Menu/Paper Menu/Size-Type/Tray1/Type). Is the paper type set correctly on the printer operator panel?
Change the paper weight setting to heavy on the printer operator panel (go to Menu/Paper Menu/Size-Type/Tray1/Type/Heavy Paper/Check button). Try printing your document again. Did the error return? If the error returns, please contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance.
