Savin® Carriage Jam
I did not use my Savin Printer for two months, but now it is not able to print anything at all. Please suggest.
There is a rod in the carriage of your printer that is meant for holding the cartridges. It keeps on moving and spreading the ink on the paper throughout the process of printing. If this rod is jammed up because of any reason, you face a carriage jam. Generally carriage jams may be taken care off without much difficulty. If because of any reason you are not using your Savin Printer often enough, then its inkjet nozzles can get clogged. So if you are not using your printer frequently, then you need to print a test page at least once a week for its normal functioning.
Carriage jams might seriously prove to be a severe headache for printer users. In order to avoid carriage jams, you need to take care of various issues.
Some of them are discussed below:
- Overloaded Tray
- Incorrect Loading of the Paper
- Damaged or Dirty Paper Rollers
- Rear Access Door Closed or not Locked into Place
- Paper Added to a Stack while Printing
- More than One Type of Paper
The above mentioned causes of the paper jam can be prevented as follows:
Never try to overload the tray with paper for your convenience of not loading the tray time and again because it leads to unnecessary paper jam.
Incorrect Loading of the Paper
Before loading the paper, you need to hold the stack of paper, and then tap it to make the stack even on all sides. Ensure that the paper adjusters on the tray are positioned in a right manner. Push the stack of paper into the tray until it stops. Never try to force the paper too far in the tray.
Damaged or Dirty Paper Rollers
If rollers of your printer are leaving marks on the document, then you need to clean them with a wet cleaning pad. Never use chemical cleaners such as benzine, thinner, or alcohol to clean the rollers. Never load the tray with the paper with clips or staples.
Rear Access Door Closed or not Locked into Place
You need to ensure that the cartridges are locked into the carriage. Look for the obstructions under or around the carriage that might block it from moving.
Paper Added to a Stack while Printing
Only add paper to the tray when the product is not printing, otherwise it might damage your printer.
More than One Type of Paper
Always use one type of paper at a time. Never try to mix different types, weights, or sizes of paper. Ensure that your printer supports the paper type you are using by consulting the manual that came along with the printer. Maximum paper size for Lanier Printer is 8.5" x 14". It also supports 11" x 17" in some models.
