How to Identify and Fix Common Problems ?

The paper tray is empty or overloaded. The paper is curled. The print side, or shiny side, of the paper is not loaded in the paper tray face up. For photo paper, always load the rougher side of the paper facing down.
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.
A paper feed issue can occur for several reasons, such as dusty or contaminated paper rollers, the condition of the paper in the tray, or even issues with the software.
There are different methods of paper feeding. With dot matrix printers, paper is often feed through pins on a wheel that grab and slowly move paper through the printer. With inkjet and other page printers, paper is fed through the printer with rollers that grab and move the paper through the printer.
Using both hands, put one piece of paper in the manual feed slot until the front edge of the paper touches the paper feed roller. Once the machine has grasped the paper, let go. The side to be printed should be faced up. The machine will hold the paper in place until the print data is sent to the machine.
Issue description

A “Load Paper” intervention message appears on the printer display even when there is paper loaded in the tray. This error message means the printer is not detecting any paper on the tray. The same intervention message will appear when: The tray is empty.

Slide the paper all the way into the printer. The leading edge of the paper will stop at the Paper Drive Roller. Locate the Paper Sensor/OOPs sensor on the right side of the paper path. It can be seen from the top of the printer with the Top Cover open and has red, black, and blue wires attached to it.
One sensor is located in the printer carriage. A second sensor—the Auto Sense sensor—is located in the back of the printer near the paper `clean out` area. Each sensor performs a specific set of media detection functions.
Most printers print the information from top to bottom, which means the paper should be fed into top-feed printers upside down so the top of the card goes into the printer first.
The paper trays are overloaded. The paper is curled. The print side, or shiny side, of the paper is not loaded in the tray face down. The paper guides are too tight against the paper stack.
Sheet feeder: Holds the blank paper and automatically feeds the paper during printing.
Continuous form feed and friction feed are the two types of paper feeder mechanisms. Dot matrix printers use continuous form feed, and laser printers use friction feed.
Manual feeding means feeding wherein the material or part being processed is handled by the operator on each stroke of the press.
A front loading printer is the most common form of laser printer, the media tray or cassette will usually be located at the bottom of the printer and will feed the media in from the front.
The Print Spooler is software built into the Windows operating system that temporarily stores print jobs in the computer`s memory until the printer is ready to print them. In some circumstances you may need to stop and/or restart the service.
You can use the manual feed feature when printing mixed media. For example, you can load an envelope, then a letter, then an envelope, and so on. In this case, you would load an envelope in the priority feed slot, and then load letter size paper in the main input tray.
A paper jam is when paper or other printed material gets stuck or lodged in a printer and cannot eject.
Use a clean, absorbent, lint-free cloth that you have slightly dampened with isopropyl alcohol to very gently wipe any dust and loosened ink deposits from the sensor window. Please help us improve by providing feedback on your experience with the document.

Paper feed problem
ANSWER : Those printers are really hard t.o take apart. As you can see, there are very few screws holding it together. All the panels snap on and aren’t meant to come back off for repair. What I do is gently pry around the panel with a small flat blade screwdriver until it pops up. There aren’t any manuals, so that’s pretty much the only way to do it. I’m pretty good at putting parts like that back in without disassembly. I’ve innovated different repair methods where I do the equivalent of laproscopic surgery with minimum disassembly. Maybe use a needle nosed pliers and a small screwdriver to help guide it in? I don’t know exactly where it came out of or how much access room you have.

Lexmark paper feed problems
ANSWER : On my X204n Lexmark laser printer, it was doing the same thing you described – basically sounded like it was trying to pick up the paper from the tray and then failing after several seconds. When you’d open the paper tray, the paper looked like it had been partially taken up with some black scuff marks on the paper that lined up with the rollers that take up the paper. I inspected the rollers and although they looked a bit smooth and worn, didn’t seem like they should be a problem. However, this particular model has just a rubber tire almost like a car tire – the rubber can come off the hard plastic wheel on the inner portion. So I popped off the two rubber “tires”, turned them inside out and put them back on. When turned inside out, the rubber looked nice and … rubbery and had a lot more grippy feeling to them. The very first printing attempt after that and the paper sucked up perfectly with no problems. I think the problem is solved! So if you have similar “tires” that take up the paper, try flipping them and see if it works for you too.

Tray 1 (upper tray) paper feed problem
ANSWER : There is no way of adjusting the distance of lift. Could be that the pickup roller is worn enough that it will pick up a sheet that is higher, but not one that is lower down. You can look at the end of the roller that first makes contact and see if it is worn smooth.
