Manic Monday

What started off as a promising morning has just turned sour.  A sheet of paper stuck in my printer and when I tried to pull it out it tore and  left part of it behind. And now I can’t even see it. 

So my manic Monday really is manic. Thankfully I’d just finished printing out the latest version of my new book – more about that in another blog. I intend to spend the rest of the day reading it through while waiting for my husband to return to take a look at the printer.  If he can’t do it then I’m afraid it will be a visit to the printer hospital.

Has anyone else ever completely lost a scrap of paper in their printer?

    I have lost scraps often in my printers. Sometimes just flipping the power switch off and then back on will cause it to run the paper through the system. Other times I have used my flashlight and tweezers. Different printers have different ways of getting inside. With a laser toner (black print only), I remove the toner and find the scrap below/around it. (If this is the case, make sure you don’t have any “good copies” nearby, as toner ink is sure to drop everywhere in sight.) With a colour printer, simply opening the cartridge door will often cause the paper to pop out.
    I’m sure you’ll find lots to do until your husband gets home. My recommendation is to just leave it for him if you’re rushed. If you really want to find that scrap and/or need to print more pages before he gets home, then perhaps one of the above suggestions will help in the meantime.
    Best of luck!!! (I wish I was there to try to help you! Misery loves company, LOL!)

      Thanks, Laney. My husband took a look and neither of us could see the paper stuck inside so in the end I took it down to a local computer shop and he said he couldn’t see any paper in it. Go figure! So I’ve left it with him. I hate to think how much it’s going to cost. £25 to just look at it. I think I’m in the wrong line of business.
