Kodak 5250 Constant Paper jam

  amanda70 15:17 PM 12 Oct 11

Hi, I have a kodak 5250 and I can not print. I have followed the troubleshooting options on the Kodak web site. But It does not matter if I load 1 sheet of paper or 10 it still screws up the paper and jams. And I have to take the back off and remove paper. I must have wasted about 50 sheets this afternoon.

Any ideas I would appreciate , we have had the printer for about 16 months, it is always temperamental, but never this bad!

Have you had a look inside the printer to see if any previous small pieces of jammed/torn paper are still in there. Or perhaps roller or component damage, which may have been due to jamming or paper removal?.

Personally, when a printer starts giving problems, then I start thinking about replacement, more than repair or further involvement. Printers are very cheap nowadays (its the original cartridges that are expensive), compared to what they use to be. If you have a stock of cartridges, then perhaps check for a similar cartridge type printer!.
