Printer doesn't pick up paper


This question is archived. No new answers are allowed, and only the question's owner may edit it.

Some years ago, my printer didn't grab the paper anymore. It moved half an inch and stopped. I asked the seller, who told me off, saying I had bought the wrong paper (i.e. not in his shop) and that my printer was ruined.

After looking around, I found a solution which is still working.

Open the rear door. On the left side, past the rubber rollers, there is a grey striated roller which rests on the paper stack.

It is quite out of reach, but with a cotton swab wet with isopropyl alcohol, you can clean it. Make it roll, to clean all of it.

And that's all. Approximately every year, I have to do it again. It is easy and cheaper than a new printer.
