How to Troubleshoot Corrected Paper Printing on a Printer
Paper Is Jammed When You Are Printing A Document On The Printer. The printer is one type of computer peripherals that has the function of printing documents from a computer to paper media or the like. By using a printer, we can print various reports, images, and photos.
Inkjet printers print by spraying ink from the cartridge onto paper or other print media. You should not touch the printing results immediately, because the effects of printing using an inkjet printer take some time before the ink dries.
In the head cartridge, there are small holes with a diameter of fewer than 0.1 millimeters. Through these holes, ink remains sprayed. These holes are tiny, so blockages often occur. Usually, the blockage remains caused by a dry pile of ink. This blockage causes the ink that comes out to be unstable so that the printing results will be broken or not even exit alias cannot print.
Apart from the problems described above, many other issues make the printer unable to print or jam. In this article, PrinterCODE will discuss the causes of printer jams and how to overcome them to help those of you who are experiencing problems with the printer, or as a reference to increase your knowledge.
1. The Printer Is Still Off
The first reason you need to check when your computer is stuck and can’t print is that the printer is still off. If the printer continues indeed dead, of course, the printer will not be able to write. Check the electricity in your home, whether it is on or not, then check the socket is in good condition (flowing electric current) or not. Also, check the power cable connected to the printer, and make sure the printer’s power button is on (On position).
2. Printer Connection to Disconnected Computer
Disconnection from the printer can be caused by a USB cable printer that has a problem with the printer with a computer (data cable). Check the USB cable that connects the printer to the network, whether the data cable is in good condition or not. Recheck the data cable, make sure it remains installed correctly. You can try using another data cable to find out whether the data cable is indeed a problem or not.
3. The printer driver has a problem
Troubled printer drivers can cause problems in the process of sending data from the computer to the printer until the printer is disconnected. Make convinced that the printer driver is installed first because if the diver does not fit, the printer cannot be used. After that, check the driver’s condition, by trying to run the software. You can decide to reinstall the driver to make sure that the printer driver installed is not problematic.
If the ink runs out, the printer will not be able to print documents. The printer will still run, but there will be no text or images published on the paper. Remember when you last filled the ink, refill if you feel the ink has run out. To be sure you can check the ink in the cartridge if the head cartridge is dry the ink is likely to run out. If you use ink infusion, it will be easier to check, just by looking at the contents of your printer ink cartridge. Better refill the ink before it runs out when the ink is about 20% to make the round more durable.
5. The cartridge remains not installed properly
Around that does not fit correctly will cause the printer to jam and will not work. To overcome this, you have to open the cartridge and put it back in, make sure the round remains installed correctly.
6. Dirty cartridge – head cleaning
A dirty round will cause striped prints (read: how to deal with striped print results) or broken, to overcome this you can try to do head cleaning first. The way to run the printer maintenance application on the computer then clicks head cleaning. Do two or three times head cleaning, then check the results. If it is still not resolved, try removing the cartridge from the printer, and manually cleaning the cartridge head by wiping it with a clean sheet.
7. Dry Ink
Dry ink will clog the ink spraying holes on the cartridge head. So the printer jams or fails to print the document. To overcome if you try to do deep cleaning first or handle it manually. To fix this manually, remove the cartridge from the printer. Be careful not to hold the chip on the cartridge (also read: the cause of the striped printer).
Prepare warm water in a bowl, then dip the tip of the cartridge into it. Don’t let the water touch the chip. Then shake the round until the ink on the cartridge melts. Do this several times using new water (replace the water). After that lift and dry the series with a wipe or a clean, soft cloth. Make sure the cartridge is completely dry before putting it back into the printer.
8. Cartridge not detected (damaged)
If the round is not detected even though it has tried cleaning as described above, it is possible that the cartridge has remained damaged. To overcome this, you have to replace it with a new cartridge (also read: how to repair the round).
9. The printer exceeds the printing limit (must be reset)
The printer has several printing limits; the printer manufacturer sets this limit for several reasons. If the deadline has remained exceeded, the printer will jam and won’t print again. To overcome this, you can try to reset the printer using the resetter software that is widely available on the internet.
10. Paper Jam
The paper jam occurs caused by the presence of paper or other objects that carry inside the printer. To overcome this, you must remove the paper stuck. First, turn off the printer and disconnect the power cable and data cable connected to the printer. Open the casing or the top cover of the printer, then open the file separator. Hold the clogged paper and pull it gently until all parts of the paper come out. Return the paper separator to its original position, then replace the lid or the printer case. Paper trapping usually occurs when the document is curly or sticks to other writing.
11. Paper loaded too much, or thick.
The printer has a limit on how much paper remains loaded into it. If the document is overloaded, the roll will have difficulty pulling paper because the writing is stacked too dense. To overcome this, you should reduce the amount of paper loaded. Paper that is too thick can also cause the roll or paper pulling wheel not to remove the paper. You can because the roll strength is lacking or because the space in the printer is inadequate. To overcome this, thinner use paper.
12. Roll the damaged paper puller
The jamming of the printer can also be caused by damage to the roll or paper pulling wheel or because of a disturbance that causes the roll ability to weaken. To overcome this, first check whether there is a disturbance on the roll; for example, there is an object that is involved in the drive wheel so that the wheels cannot work. You can check it by opening the printer cover, and checking the paper entry and exit path. Note also whether there is damage to the roll, for example, the hook is broken or other. If the roll is indeed damaged, you can’t help but replace it.
