IBM® Network Printer 21 Paper Jam
Reasons for Paper Jam in IBM Network Printer 21
Network printers have the ability to function in built-in network interfaces, wireless or Ethernet based connections. They can serve as hard copy devices for all the users in the network. For printer configuration and status through parallel, serial, network and later USB, Network Printing Alliance Protocol is developed. Paper jam means when paper or other printed material gets lodged into a printer it gets difficult to eject it. Once a paper jam occurs the printer will not work until the paper is removed manually. Some paper might still remain inside the printer that it needs to be removed. To solve this problem open the printer door to access the printer cartridges then remove the stuck paper if it is visible. Then turn on the printer. In order to prevent the issue of paper jam make sure that papers for printing are aligned properly before printing.
Some of the reasons for paper jam in IBM network printer 21 are:
- Improperly arranged paper
- Use of Wrong Tray
- Incorrect Loading of Paper
Improperly arranged paper
If the papers are arranged improperly there might be folded paper, paper with labels or hard bound paper. These types of paper could result in paper jams. Users must use standard office paper for printing. Improper arrangements also cause the paper to get damaged. Damaged paper means paper with curled corners. A printer with a slider can allow paper of different types and sizes to cause paper jam due to improper arrangement in the slider.
Use of Wrong Tray
Some printers have special trays for labels, pictures and envelops. Trays are also sometimes used for unique printouts. If you are using the wrong tray there might be chances of paper jams occurring. Information about how to use the tray is present in the documentation of the printer. Users can read the manual to get a clear understanding of how to use the printer.
Incorrect Loading of Paper
If the printer guide is too tight or too loose it results in the paper going towards the printer in an incorrect manner. If the printer is overloaded there might be chances of paper jams. Also paper might be jammed at the sensor section. In network printers print instructions might come from more than one machine so there might be a chance of overloading occurring in the printer.
