Paper Not Being Picked Up

  • If the printer does not feed paper properly, then you must first remove some jams and torn pieces of paper from inside the paper
  • Thereafter, check if you have loaded the appropriate media sizes
  • Finally, verify the control panel settings for the media size

The Paper Guides

  • Additionally, check if the paper guides are appropriately adjusted according to the size of the media that you have loaded
  • If the guides are too tight, it might prevent the paper from feeding through the rollers
  • Align guides according to the indentations and markings present on the tray for the purpose

Humidity and Paper

  • Room humidity should always be within the printer’s recommended standards
  • Paper reams should be stored in moisture-proof packaging so that they stay dry
  • The top of the paper stacks tend to absorb the moisture in high-humidity areas and when you load them they appear uneven
  • These could result in paper jams
  • Flex the stack of paper first
  • Then release individual sheets of paper without inducing static electricity before loading them into the tray

The Rollers

  • Before you get to the rollers, check the printer’s control panel and adjust the displays after you have loaded the paper manually
  • Contaminated rollers above the tray could also lead to potential errors
  • Dampen a lint-free cloth and clean the rollers; if possible use warm distilled water

Note: Spraying water on to the printer directly is not advised. Instead, use a wring the cloth of water before applying the cleaning procedure on to the rollers

  • After placing the rollers back check the Supplies Status Page
  • Since the rollers come with a kit, you might have to replace the Fuser, if it is low
