    HP LaserJet 4050.

    The manual feed draws more than 1 piece of paper at a time. The regular tray works fine. The rollers have been replaced and the entire printer vacuumed out.

    Any ideas?

    Damp paper? :big grin:

    Seriously though, my Deskjet seems to draw multiple sheets alot during the high humidity summer months.

    Also check the tension of the spings that push the paper up to the feeder. :dunno:

    I'll agree. Try some fresh paper.

    Well, we can't try new paper because we're printing on numbered checks. I'll look at the springs. Thanks.

    Take a look on the HP web site. This was a problem with a few of the HP's we have at work. They can send you a free repair kit to fix the problem. It just replaces one of the pads inside that can wear out. I've used it on two of the printers at work and one at home.

    Printed cheques eh? Well does new paper solve the problem? I print cheques all the time and found fanning the paper helps a lot.
