hi, i'm having problems trying to get a printout, as the paper is'nt getting through. bought it approx 2 yrs ago, from curry's, so warranty has expired by now. don't want to buy another one, but bought a cd repair disc, which may help. the rollers are making a bit of a noise, more than usual. tried holding paper and putting more sheets into feed tray, but no use.would appreciate any feedback.

What is that? Open the printer and look for the CD, it may be jamming the rollers.

Sounds like you have a paper jam and you need to "free" every bit of it to return it to normal.

hi, printer still won't print. no sign of any paper inside printer and noisier than usual. the cd repair disc is to reset the counter, to avoid sending to workshop. was working not long ago, but not catching the paper. any feedback appreciated. thanks.

I have just had the same kind of problem with an HP all-in-one printer. Having looked at the possible cost of repair, it was cheaper to throw it away and buy a new one.

HP in the skip and Canon working well.
