How to Identify and Fix Common Problems ?

1. Causes of Multiple Sheet Feed. Multiple pages being fed through the printer overlapping or in a stack occurs when the media fails to separate correctly in the tray. Common causes are issues with the print media, incorrectly adjusted paper trays and worn or contaminated feed or separator rollers.
Click the General tab, and then click Printing Preferences. Click the Basics tab, and then click About. Locate the page count at the bottom of the About This Driver screen.
This is related to a printer driver setting known as the mopier mode. When the mopier mode is enabled, a printer can receive one copy of a document, and print multiple collated copies. The number of copies required is specified via a PJL header tag in the spool file.
Usually this issue occurs if there is any file missing or corrupted in the Printer drivers/print spooler.
Printing on 5% = 480 pages (the official page yield). Printing on 10% = 240 pages. Printing on 20% = 120 pages. Printing on 40% = 60 pages.
A typical ink cartridge will yield 250 to 300 pages depending on the color density of the prints. The yield of a typical toner cartridge in a laser printer is between 2,500 and 3,000 pages. Some larger laser printers can even have toners that will yield up to 30,000 pages!
Right-click your newly created printer and select Properties to open the Printer Properties window. Click the Printer Preferences button on the General tab. Click the Advanced button on the Printer Preferences window. Select the number of copies that you want to print in the Copy Count field and click Ok.
Misfeeds occur frequently. The number of sheets loaded exceeds the capacity of the printer. Load paper only as high as the upper limit markings on the side fences of the paper tray, or the markings on the paper guides of the bypass tray.
