The switch that says that the paper is out is stuck or misaligned.

Hp officejet 7000 won't print 6.5 x 10 paper size


Officejet 8620 printed about 400 for me in 16 months then stopped. A few weeks prior to the error msg. that the paper in the tray did not match my document settings another message said it did not recognize any paper in tray including letter size despite there being about 100 sheets. I c alled HP two different days, tried documents on a brand new computer, created a new document. Took two hours total and $20 to be told the printer did not support this paper size. I called them prior to purchase and told them my needs and was told it would accommodate the size. My local techie and I both think the sensors have gone bad in under 2 years as I had been able to print my cards with no issue about 400 times. I called Epson three different times and each tech support person says Epsons can accommodate this.

Paper doesn't feed from inside on XD 100 work center (10 years old, lightly used). Despite a full paper drawer, I get the "out of paper" error message.  I can copy by feeding through the back.


On this machine, the feed rollers might be worn down.
Not seeing the machine and by the description. there can also be other possible problem areas, deep in the machine itself.
Does the paper feed partially out?
If it does not, are there paper black scuff marks where the rollers were trying to feed the paper.
Can you hear the solenoids feed the paper?
If the paper does feed and seems crooked, it is possible the paper tray springs need to be stretched out just a little to push the paper tray plate more on the feed rollers.
Make sure the tray is completely up in the latched position so the feed wheels will touch the paper stack itself.
If you have a two paper tray, make sure you tell the machine what size paper you have for each tray.
Run paper in each tray.
Good luck.

Our customer has a Canon Laser fax L800, Error message of Jammed paper displays, despite the fact that there is no paper jammed in the machine, paper path looks ok. Any ideas !!


Is it a jam or an add paper message (same light)? Sometimes you have to press the start button after you add paper on this machine.

Could not pick up papers from paper tray.


1- either the tray is not lifting the paper to meet the rollers ( which may indicate a motor problem) or the rollers are not coming down to meet hte paper (clutch problem)

Paper


then you have some buried deep inside..turn light off in office, close door, and use a flashlight or penlight..paper will glow from light..that will help a bit..then long tweezers to extract the fragments, eh?
