I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Reading up on it, I found that this printer has an auto-duplex feature, which lead me to the question:

How damp is the paper going to be after printing duplex, especially if I print with 50% - 100% coverage?

My initial conjecture is that it wouldn't be wet or curled, as it would be counterproductive to Epson's image to provide a printer with an auto-duplex feature that would drench the paper.

After doing a little bit of research, it seems that it's largely going to depend on the ink itself. According to macworld.com, "pigment inks...are made up of tiny, encapsulated particles that sit on top of the paper, instead of being absorbed into a paper’s fibers, which is what happens with dyes." The article further goes on to state that pigment inks are primarily for the purpose of longevity. Well, I'm not particularly concerned about it's longevity but I am interested in whether it's ability to dry faster than dye ink is justifiable for an investment in pigment inks?

A little more research revealed that paper quality is also a major factor (duh). Only issue is, I've already purchased a bunch of cheap 20 lb, 96 bright white paper and don't want to purchase paper separately for this additional printer (when I mean "bunch", I mean that I possess cases of paper in the double digits). Another reason I'm hesitant to make any move towards better paper is that it seems that the higher quality paper is designed to ... Read more

I have a REALLY bad paper jam... My printer is MF4350d. The paper jam troubleshooting outlined in the manual did not help. When I opened up the toner area and the back end of the printer, I can't see see the paper at all. It looks like the paper is jammed in area that I don't know how to access to (if I can, aside from taking the whole printer apart).

Does anyone know any way to fix this problem? :/ The paper that got stuck was a label paper. I know for sure it is stuck because the paper did not come out at all. The WHOLE paper got stuck. The label paper half half label peeled off. I am assuming that the reason it might have curled up in the printer is due to the disappearance of that half label? :/

The label paper is a regular size paper with 2 labels divided evenly on the paper.

Is taking the printer apart the only way? (is that even safe/good to do on my own part?)

Please help thank you very much.

I think this is similar to the thread
HP 2575 Printer Paper Jam Error w/no paper jam
I was trying to print 2 sheets double sided (manually).
Side 1 printed, I reoriented the sheet, pressed OK, then the paper jammed.
I removed the jammed paper, which tore during removal
I tried to reprint the two sheets, and printed side one, then got a papre jam message before the reoriented paper was taken up!
I have tried powering off and disconnecting the printer, and now have a "permanent" paper jam message.
Can anyone tell me where the sensors are on this model? I suspect "chad" (yes, I really am old enough to know the problems chad can cause).
Unfortunately, I'm also partially sighted, so I need pretty clear instructions on where to look forthe chad.
Can anyone help please?

I have had an HP 4L Laser Printer for a number of years and it has provided me with excellent service up until today.

The printer was working perfectly yesterday, but when I went to print a document today, the printer, instead of making the usual warmup noise, gave off a louder noise (almost like something was vibrating), as if something was jamming, and then for a second went quiet before it repeated the louder noise as it went to lift the paper (I could also hear the noise it is meant to make as it lifts the paper). The printer then stopped operating and the orange 'Paper' light started flashing.

When I opened the paper tray, the paper had barely been lifted out of the tray and the left hand corner of the paper, where the printer lifts it from the tray, is slightly crunched.

I have checked out the printer and there is no paper jammed.

It seems that there must be something wrong with the paper feed mechanism so I'm hoping for some advice on how to fix or adjust it.

I have a HP PSC 1350 All-in-One printer/scanner. It is fully loaded but when I go to print something I get an error message that tells me it is out of paper. It goes through the motions/sounds before the error message like it is attempting to print, but it appears it cannot read or the sensor cannot pick up the fact that there IS paper in the machine. Is this something that can be fixed (i.e. is there something that needs taken apart and cleaned) or is it time to get a new printer?
Side note: The rubber feed rollers have already been cleaned.

As always, any help is appreciated.

I have a year old HP computer with Windows XP. I have a Lexmark Printer Platinum Pro 905.
Lately, when I go to print, and then click on "Properties" and select "Tray 2" for paper, my printer still uses Tray 1 for paper selection.
Any ideas?

A:Problem with LexMark Printer Paper Tray Selection

That usually happens when no paper is detected in the tray you selected, the printer will then automatically switch to the tray where paper is detected.

If you are sure there is paper in 'Tray 2', make sure it's loaded properly.

So instead of using Tray 1, it is using the tray with recycled paper. If I choose the correct option, it works.

My subject paper recently started acting weird.
When I try to load continuous paper and press load button, it retracts the paper.
It did happen previously and I used some compressed air to clean the printer and
everything worked fine. I believe there is a photocell somewhere in the printer,
which is supposed to sense the paper. I do not know where it is and also I do not
know why it is not working as it should.
Does any one have ideas about what to do except to trash the printer.

I have a nice LaserJet 2500n, it has a dropdown tray labeled 1, and it has a 250 paper paper tray labeled 2. Everything is fine and dandy. I purchase an extra paper tray, unpack it, and set my 2500n on top of it. Now it keeps defaulting to the extra paper tray no matter what tray I specify in my apps, AND no matter what app I use (IE, Word, Notepad). The only way it will print to Tray2 is by pulling out Tray3! I've tried reinstalling the printer, then going into device settings and selecting 'installed' for tray3. But still nothing. I know the default is always tray 1,3,2. But I would think this gets overriden by the print job. Does this sound normal? Or should I be requesting an RMA? many thanks in advance!

A:I add xtra paper tray (tray3), now I can't print to tray2 unless I pull out tray3!

It sounds like normal hp printer operation to me. If one of the trays has a different paper size installed then it should switch automatically between the trays.

The easiest way for me to ask what I want is to show it by example. Let’s first select FILE -> PAGE SETUP. When the PAGE SETUP window comes up, select the PAGE tab. After you select “USE SPECIFIC PRINTER” the form automatically repopulates the SIZE and SOURCE combo boxes for that specific printer. I don’t care about the SIZE combo box, but how do you know what to put into the SOURCE combo box? This is AcPrintPaperBin, right? Finally, when you click on the OK command button, what are the VB commands that execute? Thanks -Ken.

How do I fix a paper jam on my Canon printer PIXMA MP280

A:Paper jam

I assume you mean how do you reset the printer after the physical paper jam has been cleared. If that is the case, there should be a Stop/Reset button on the main controls, if so, press it. I have a different model PIXMA, so you might not have that button; if you don't, turn it off, wait about a minute (really wait a minute or it will not fully reset), then turn it back on. That should do it, if not, post back and I'll try to help you clear out the error state.

hello all, we've been running into problems with our Hewlett Packard Laserjet 5L recently, and i wanted to know if anybody knew anything about the thing. It used to work fine, but since about a month or so, it now eats all the paper in the paper feed. This is very annoying and forces us to feed paper sheet by sheet. I know this is a common problem, as we have had the same problem with several 5Ls without ever being able to resolve it. Anybody know how to fix this? i have not been able to find any info on it. Would kicking it do the trick?

Is there some way of rejuvenating the surface of the "feed Wheels" on an HP DeskJet (T-65) so that they grab the paper better. I tend to think that this is the primary problem in the relentless "paper Jamming" which I am recently experiencing. If I remove all the paper from the tray and feed one sheet at a time, it seems to work fairly well but not if I put several sheets in the tray and let it feed normally.

I have a Canon Multipass F20 and Windows Xp SP2
everything has been working just fine until today when my printer refuses to feed the paper. I do not see any thing unusual. It just grabs the paper and twists in on one side and jams up.
I have turned it off and on again
I have restarted my computer
I have tried one piece of paper at a time while watching it
I have tried 50 sheets in the tray.
All with the same result.
I don't know where to find the Canon Multipass printer test "module". I know it exists, because I used it when I first got the printer, but it has never been a problem until now and I can't find it. I don't know that it would help because as I recall it was all about color and density but .......

I've had my Canon Pixma MP600 for 4 years. It has always worked flawlessly. But I turned it on today, and it gave me a weird error message about some "incompatible device" being plugged in. There was nothing plugged into any port on it. I did a search and found where someone who had the same strange message said it was because of a stuck lever in the paper path, and the way to unstick it was to fold the top 1cm. of a heavy piece of paper, slide it in the back of the printer across the top rubber rollers with the folded 1cm facing up, then pull it out. Said I would feel resistance and a click when pulling it out, which I did.

So what did that do? It replaced the "incompatible device" error with a "paper jam" error. There is NO PAPER JAM!! I see from my search that this seems to be a common Canon printer problem going back to the low-number Pixmas, but I have not found a fix.

Anybody know what I need to do to fix this thing, other than taking it to a service depot and paying twice what a new one would cost to get it fixed?
