This shim kit will not solve all paper feed problems from the lower
cassette. All the standard media checks should be performed to
assure media meets HP specifications, is not damaged, and so forth.
The adjustment for paper tension should also be set properly for the
weight of the paper that is installed in the tray.
A Lower Cassette Shim Kit has been designed that includes
the shim and an instruction sheet for proper installation. The shim kit is
user-installable and available to service providers or end users. The
shim kit can be ordered free of charge by calling HP Distribution at
(970) 339-7009. Callers should request the HP Shim Upgrade Kit, part
number C3916-67906. The shim kit will work only for customers using
letter or legal-size paper.
