Selected FAQ

The printer won't feed paper. What should I do?
See Paper Problems in the User’s Guide if paper sheets won't feed correctly, won't eject fully, eject wrinkled, or jam in the printer. Also, see Paper Problems if roll paper doesn’t feed correctly or jams in the printer.

If the printer will not pick up paper sheets and load them into the printer, try cleaning the rollers as described below.

  • Never use a hard or abrasive brush, or benzine, alcohol, or thinner for cleaning; they can damage the printer components and case.

  • Don't get water on the printer components and don't spray or apply lubricants or oils inside the printer.

  • Don't use any cleaning sheets included with special paper; they may jam inside the printer.
