Chapter 7. Hardware Annoyances > KEEP THE PAPER FLOWING

KEEP THE PAPER FLOWING

The Annoyance:

My year-old inkjet is driving me nuts with paper jams. No matter which kind of paper I use-plain or photographic-it chews it up.

The Fix:

To avoid printer paper jams, make sure that all the paper in the tray is the same type and weight. (The most common paper weight is 20 pounds; it's usually listed on the package.) Don't mix photo paper, heavy card stock, and plain paper, for example. And always store your paper flat. If your printer uses a vertical feed tray and you don't print often, flip the paper around to prevent it from curling in the tray. Better yet, store it flat until you actually print something.
