Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Hp c6180 keeps erroring that there's no paper, when it does recognize paper

It prints with the top corner folded over, then jams. I've cleared jams from back, but the front paper tray seems like it isn't seating right.

    Thanks, what do you suggest for fixing it? Can I fix it--it's gotten very light since I got it six months ago--or should I buy replacement parts and repair it, or should I pitch it? I'm furious that it breaks down so much, errors so much, with my mac. 


    Can I fix this thing? Is it worth it? I paid about 200 US and it's practically new. It drinks ink like a thirsty creature. The ink is VERY expensive. 


    What about the defcom reset using the * and # keys and resetting it, for what it's worth? Is that useful?

    Also, I think the paper tray isn't in straight. When I look at the bottom of the printer, there are two buttons that slide for moving? the tray? I'd like to remove and put it back in straight, is that a possibility?


    Thanks, for the help, by the way. I didn't say that in my previous message and I should have because you responded so quickly and with such precise technical knowledge. This printer makes me so mad I forget my manners.

Folded corner is 2 things
a) it's gettig folded somewhere along the paper path ( you would have to stop it at every step to see at what point it gets folded)

b)usually the fuser claws are the problem ( right before the exit the part that gets hot has some claws that ride ON the heat roller 3-5 depending on the machine, one is going bad )

    you can remove the tray, the buttons you are referreing to are most likely to change the size of the paper, Legal, Letter, etc..

    take it out you should see a track or guides that the tray slides in, check to see if something is broken, ( might be the tray itself)

When printing documents no matter how few or how many pages, paper gets stuck in the middle of printing.


Try using regular paper on unit as specified by Samsung. If that does not resolve the issue then the hassle lies with the paper feed mechanism. Often a good cleaning of all the rollers in the path can take care of the issue.

T652n 202.03 paperjam


1Open the upper-front cover and remove the toner cartridge.2
Look into the printer. Remove any jammed sheets of paper that you find there.

  • If the print job only consisted of this one page, reinstall the toner cartridge and close the front cover. Press the pattlnk_10162008_2247-select_button.jpg button to clear the error, and then try printing again.

  • If the print job consisted of more than one page, confirm the entire paper path is clear before printing again. Do the following:


    1. Remove the top paper tray ('Tray 1').
    2. Remove any jammed or partially-fed sheets of paper you find here, then reinstall the tray.
    3. Go around to the back of the machine and open the upper-rear cover. Remove any jammed sheets of paper you find, then close the cover.
    4. Once you have confirmed that the entire paper path is clear, reinstall the toner cartridge and close the front cover.
    5. Press the pattlnk_10162008_2247-select_button.jpg button to clear the error, and then try printing again.


  • If you cannot locate any jammed paper under the toner cartridge, then check the rest of the printer for any jammed paper. Do the following:

    • Remove the top paper tray ('Tray 1') and look for any jammed or partially-fed sheets of paper.
    • If you do not find any jammed pages there, reinstall the tray and go around to the back of the machine. Open the upper-rear cover and look there.
    • If the entire paper path appears to be clear, close the rear cover and power off the printer. Reinstall the toner cartridge and close the front cover. Power the printer back on. If a 200 error continues on power up, a sensor in the printer may be malfunctioning. This will require a service call to correct the issue. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support for additional information (see Contacting Lexmark Technical Supportbelow for details).

I have an epson printer and when I hit print, the paper slides right thru & says paper jam


  • Carefully remove the jammed photo paper. Gently pull the paper up and out of the paper feeder tray.

  • 2

    Reload the paper into the tray. Stack the paper on a flat surface and then carefully slide the paper stack straight into the paper feeder tray---along and aligned with the right side of the tray. Secure the stack in place by sliding the left "edge guide" against the paper stack.

  • 3

    Press the "OK" button to resume printing. If you had a "Paper is jammed in the printer..." error message displayed on the control panel LCD, pressing "OK" should also clear the message.

  • 4

    Pull the paper from the printer, if the status message reappears and/or the printer doesn't print, and check the paper for folds, buckling and curled edges or corners. Also check the sheets for sticking. If any of your sheets stick or have damage, remove them from your photo paper stack and replace with new sheets. Reload the paper and press "OK" to try again.

    Left corner is folded down on page


    Sounds like an issue with the feed rollers. The roller on the left side might be hung up and is causing the corner to fold over when the paper is pulled through. I would try checking the feed rollers in either the actual tray or the back of the printer. Another thing to check is the other tray (the manual one). Does the paper fold? this should help you narrow down where the problem lies.

    The paper jam button is on, but there doens't seem to be any paper in there. I took the paper tray out and examined the underside of the printer, no visible paper jammed. I undid the back access part,...


    power off printer
    remove paper tray
    open front panel
    remove both tonor and phto conductor kit (tonor seats inside of that)
    inspect inside the printer

    Chances are there is a fragment of paper in the right corner near the paper sensor

    replace components
    restart printer

    Keep me posted

    Paper jam and still won't print


    Hi

    Thanks for using FixYa. Before you can clear the error message, you must locate where in the unit the paper is jammed.

    Unplug the machine for safety. Now follow these instructions based on where the paper jam is located.

    1. Pull the paper tray out of the machine.
    2. Pull out the jammed paper.
    3. Reset the machine by opening the Upper Jam Clear Cover and then closing it.

    If you cannot remove the jammed paper from the front of the machine, or the error message still appears on the LCD after you have removed the jammed paper, please go to the next step.

    4. Remove the Lower Jam Clear Cover from the back of the machine. Pull the jammed paper out of the machine.

    5. Put the Lower Jam Clear Cover back on. Make sure the cover is set properly.

    6. Open the Upper Jam Clear Cover. Make sure that there is no jammed paper left in the corners of the machine.
    Note: If the paper is jammed under the print head, unplug the machine from the power source, then move the print head to take out the paper. 7. Close the Upper Jam Clear Cover.

    8. Close the output paper tray cover and slide it forward, then push the paper tray firmly back into the machine. While holding the paper tray in place, pull out the paper support until it clicks and unfold the paper support flap.

    Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

    Thanks

    Paper feed problem from both tray 1 & 2


    There is a long set of sensor flags on the bottom of the paper input unit that can get stuck and not move freely. This will cause jams from both trays. Try unplugging the printer, removing the toner cartridges and tray 2. Turn the printer on its back or side. You will see a long, black plastic bar with flags on it that runs the length of the paper input unit. make sure it moves freely.
