I am facing new issues with my printer. I ordered a5 photo paper for my printer. It works well for a week. But now it is working slowly and jams every 1 or 2 hours of work. I don't know what happen there. It's some internal problem or paper causing this issue. Please guide me.

Printer type, model, etc??  We are working in the dark here.


Not all printers are created equal; some are high quality, some are junk.


It works well for a week. But now it is working slowly and jams every 1 or 2 hours of work

I assume you mean that you can print with this paper you linked to for 2 hours and then the printer fails to load the paper. Then the next day you can print for another 2 hours before the printer fails again. And so on. At least that is what you posted as I see it.

Possible two reasons: you are obviously using this printer for heavy work, possibly in an office or home-business dealing with photographs.  These printers that are for homes are not intended for heavy production work, such as photo-booths at parties, etc.  They will fail if used this way.

Another possibility is that the printer is over-heating and shuts down; that is why you can use it again the next day for a couple of hours until it quits again. Eventually it will burn out the motor or damage a circuit board.

Another possibility is that the pickup rollers are becoming worn or glazed with use; my Canon Pixma ip7220 has a roller cleaning option command in the utility screen that cleans the rollers if they start to slip, you might check your user's manual for that. I had to use that a couple of times when the photo paper started slipping and not loading.


With the limited information, that's about all I can suggest.

FWIW:  Why did you link to a specific vendor...regarding a paper spec that anyone could easily look up?  A5 paperr is available just about anywhere that printer paper is sold, from what I see.
