If the printer has been printing continuously for a long time, the Print Head Holder may not move to the center since the Print Head may overheat. Opening the Top Cover while printing moves the Print Head Holder to the right. Close the Top Cover, and reopen it after printing finishes.
If roll paper does not feed, cut the end straight across and uncurl it by rolling it backward, if necessary. Then reload the paper. If thick media does not feed, make sure you are loading it straight into the product, not at an angle. If paper jams when you print on both sides of the paper, try loading fewer sheets.
Dust, paper fiber, and other debris might accumulate on the pick rollers and cause paper feed issues. To help prevent paper feed issues, clean the rollers inside the printer and in the duplexer (if equipped). If the other steps in this document fail to resolve the issue, then reset the printer.
The feed roller in combination with the feed plate pushes the sliver against the opening roller. The opening roller rotates much faster than the feed roller. This means the fibres in the sliver are hooked by the saw tooth or pins and separated under a high draft ratio into individual fibres by the opening roller.
Printer rollers are the tiny rubber wheels inside your printer that move sheets of paper through the printer. The roller that lifts the paper from the paper tray is called the paper uptake roller. The output rollers deliver the final printout.
The print head holder will not move unless the power is on. If the POWER lamp is off, close the top cover and turn the printer on. While the POWER lamp is flashing, the printer is initializing. Wait until the POWER lamp stops flashing and remains lit, and then open the top cover again.
Locate your printer`s internal pickup roller. The roller is gray or black, and it is made of rubber. Lift the roller upward, towards the front of your printer. Pull the roller gently out of the printer and lay it on a clean surface, such as a desk or workbench.
For cleaning, HP recommends using HP Equipment Cleaning Wipes, but you can use an HP-approved lint-free wipe and deionized or distilled water. Note: If dark spots appear on back side of prints, clean drum screen. Note: If minilab prints more than 2000 prints each day, clean drum screen up to twice daily.
Signs of a bad transfer roller include streaking, squealing, jamming and odors emanating from the printer. Troubleshoot your transfer rollers to restore your prints to their normal high quality.
