Answer to: Printer is ejecting paper without printing.I have the same problem with an R2400 (which is the same printer, only wider -- aka the repair manual covers both machines.) I've checked the PE Sensor (Paper Edge) on mine and it seems to be functioning correctly, 0.128V when paper is present, 3.16V when absent. So that's not it. I've heard that this problem can also be caused by a timing error -- ie. if the paper edge doesn't reach PE Sensor within a certain amount of time, it will eject the paper. I don't know . . . mine seems to feed as soon as the roller turns. So I don't know if that's the problem either. Do either of these sound similar to your problem?
Answer to: Paper feed does not workIs the feed roller in good shape? It has a flat side which is usually turned away from you. That flat side wears more. Also, there is a lever behind the sheet feeder that tilts and pushes the stack of paper sheets forward to contact the feed roller. Is the lever doing its job? The feed roller won't touch the paper if the paper isn't lifted from behind.
