My printer which was working alright for the last 4 years has suddenly started showing this message and is consistently repeating this like a parrot. Is it time for 5510? Can anyone help? I installed this printer from site downloaded driver as I have lost the original CD that came with the printer.
That is right, Ubuntu. Thanks for responding. There is not a shred of paper anywhere. There were messages like 'the door is open' but that has disappeared and assigned the responsibility of not working to this new message.
I doubt it's drivers. Printers usually have a lever switch that a paper will hold down as it passes through. Perhaps that switch is stuck. Might also be a problem with the electronics. Most likely the fix will be to take it apart and that's usually not an easy thing to do.
Well, first try replacing the data cable (it's USB, right?) or attach the cable to a different port. If the connection is flakey you may get oddball error messages.
Hi Ubuntu, I am impressed with your effort to set things right with my computer printer - I am located in Calcutta, India. I do not know where you are located but the feeling is great. I do not know how to thank you.
I tried your tips but all failed to trigger a success.
You know, the whirring of rotor to catch the paper is clearly audible but the paper is not even touched. The contact between the paper and the rubberised surface of roller is in place. Perhaps it is the other end where pinions of driver spindle or shaft is not connecting with the driven roller / shaft. The two seem to have gone out of sync. Are the pinions are not contacting? Worn out? Can't be sure. Repair may not be worth the effort and money because the two rotating shafts may have to be replaced at a cost. What do you say? Do you see a possibility? I will be on the lookout for your reply. Thanks a million. Anis
