What is the reason Drawer 1 feeding two or more papers in photocopier canon 2320L


The separation pad is probably worn out. This pad creates friction against the bottom of the paper stack to stop multi-feeding.

the printer is on and it sounds like it is printing but the paper isnt going through


You must have a worn PICK UP ROLLER or a worn SEPARATING PAD both made of rubber, you could try cleaning them with RUBBER CLEANER (you can use care wiper cleaner pads) both devices are located usually where the paper are fed in the printer, if it works better, you should order a maintenance kit for your printer and replace them...

Good luck!

Your printer has a separation pad that is worn out and needs to be replaced. This pad prevents the printer from feeding multiple pages. It is located in the inside front of the paper tray Assembly.
