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.
You need to ensure your HP printer has enough paper, ink, or toner, and it is not stuck on paper jam. Also, check the status of your printer cartridge and try replacing it with a new one if it is not good enough. In some cases, your HP printer stops printing after you replace its parts.
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.
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.
If the paper feed rollers are dirty or paper powder is attached to it, paper may not be fed properly. In this case, clean the paper feed rollers. Cleaning will wear out the paper feed rollers, so perform this only when necessary. Make sure that the power is turned on and remove any paper from the rear tray.
If your printer is running low on ink, it may start printing blank pages. To check your ink levels, go to your printer`s control panel and select the Ink Levels option. Whenever the ink levels are low, replace the cartridges with new ones. You can also try shaking the cartridge gently to redistribute the ink.
Sheet feeder: Holds the blank paper and automatically feeds the paper during printing.
The printer`s rollers are the ones responsible for pulling in the sheets in the input tray.
Rotating the roller by turning the deep side of the drive axis clockwise (1), wipe the roller in the direction of the arrow from the front to the back. Clean the roller until there is no visible dirt or dust on the entire circumference of the paper transfer roller. Visually check that there is no dirt or dust.
When it isn`t working properly, the quality of your prints can suffer. 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.
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.
Paper Feed Rollers
Created with a blending technology developed based on our extensive experience, these materials offer both a high friction coefficient retaining characteristic and superb abrasion resistance. We also mass-produce belt-shaped samples, in addition to ordinary rolls.
This is often caused by the fact the pick-up roller is worn out. The layer of rubber around this plastic part overtime gets too smooth, preventing paper from feeding properly into the printer. This fix is not really hard, will take no more than half an hour and costs around 10,- (Euro or Dollar).
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.
