How to Identify and Fix Common Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced technical support :

Open the tray and do one or more of the following: Check for paper jams or misfeeds. Check if the paper size indicators on the paper guides are aligned with the paper size indicators on the tray. If you are printing on custom‑size paper, then make sure that the paper guides rest against the edges of the paper.
Use the operator panel on the printer to enter the menus. Locate the Paper Menu and select that menu. Locate the Paper Size/Type setting and select that. Find and select MP Feeder or Multipurpose Feeder and select that.
The paper might not be engaged with the feed rollers. The paper-width guide is pressed against the paper stack too tightly. The paper tray is not completely inserted into the product. The paper settings in the print driver do not match the paper loaded in the paper tray.
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.
Place the paper in your copiers paper tray, so the wording “Copy this side first” is facing up. Only fill the paper up to the fill line which is located on the inner side of the tray. Adjust the tray`s guide back towards the paper. Don`t push the guide too far and buckle the paper.
Manual feeding means feeding wherein the material or part being processed is handled by the operator on each stroke of the press.
Tray 1 (standard tray) is the factory default setting.
Make sure that the paper size and type matches with the paper in the tray. False error messages can result from incorrect media settings in the driver or on the printer. If the tray is full and no paper jam is associated with the error, try cleaning the pick rollers.
Make sure you are pointing the Bypass tray from the printing settings. Make sure you fill the Bypass tray ONCE you`ve sent the files to the printer. Make sure the user have permissions to print from the Bypass tray. Make sure your Bypass tray is activated in the Printer`s parameters.

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.

Lexmark MS410dn not picking up paper
ANSWER : What colour are the pick rolls ? The new and enhanced pick roll tires for this series are green ones, P/N is 41X0918. The old ones in grey produced the pick errors due to a manufacturing fault. You can test the rolls by removing the tires and clean the roller profile with a roller rejuvenator liquid. Or simply use a cotton cloth with some dishwashing liquid. Clean the tires under warm water. If this works (temporarily) – replace the roller tires in your printers. That has almost every time for me.Good Luck,Andreas

Paper feeds straight through without printing on an Epson R2400
ANSWER : I was able to get it to print the internal test page by holding down the sheet paper feed button while turning the machine on — then continuing to hold the sheet paper feed button. It took several attempts, feeding a page straight through, but eventually it caught the sheet and printed. So it may be a timing issue as others have mentioned. It could still mean that the feed rollers are worn out. The back side of the large D-shaped feed roller has visible abrasion on it. The abrasion is difficult to see as the roller does not stay with the flat side exposed.

Multiple paper feed
ANSWER : Most likely the pickup roller solenoid is sticking. The way it works is the solenoid energizes, pulling down a metal plate that releases the pickup roller. There is some foam on the base to quiet the clicking sound. The foam deteriorates and the plate sticks to the gooey residue. This allows the pickup roller to continue to turn instead of stopping after one revolution when the plate springs back up. That results in multiple paper being fed. Solution is to find the solenoid, which is at the end of the pickup roller shaft. Remove the sticky foam and preferably replace it with some thin sticky backed felt. You can find it at a hardware store as it is used on the bottom of chair legs.
