remove paper tray and look inside, is there paper behind the tray? look at the tires are they bald and sniny? replace. Look at the tires and see if there is any scrap of paper there.

Ricoh Aficio CL3500N printer phantom misfeed


It seems that the sensor is having dust or toner settled upon it. Kindly remove the toner and clean the residual toner. Take a hard stock paper and give one copy command and push it while it tries to pull the paper. Paper misfeed is not the same as paper jam. Paper misfeed refers to the blank paper tray and paper jam refers to paper which has been taken from the tray and now inside the unit.

Misfeeds


We lease the copier and have a maintenance contract. We call for a technician to come out and fix the problem. I was trying to find out if there was something preventive that we could do to avoid the misfeeds. For instance, maybe a particular type of paper (brand) is recommended. We use different brands but all are 20lb bond (some recycled, some not). We attempt to keep the paper from absorbing humidity, keeping it in its wrapper until use. Often I think it is that the sensors in the copier get "dusty" and then don't function properly. The user cannot get to these sensors -- that takes a technician.

Paper Misfeed Problem


When you close the doors does the message disappear? If so then the paper pickup roller is worn. Open the cassette remove all paper apart from one sheet. Spray a alcohol based cleaned on the leading edge of the paper. Try and do a copy this will issue a jam and also clean the pickup roller. repeat a few times then clean out the cassette and dry off place new paper in the cassette and try. Also there maybe a piece of paper behind the cassette. Remove cassette and reach in and remove paper lodged at back.

Thanks Jason

Misfeed on lanier 7320


Sounds like a dirty sensor or a small piece of paper stuck. Check the feeder, left side, underneath. There should be a switch actuator
in the paper path that is visible. Also, on the right side, check all of the openings for anything stuck. If you have no luck, get some canned air and blow out everything. If its still jammed, it can be easily unplugged in the back of the machine, and the machine section will still operate.

Misfeed and PDF failure


Thewre could be even a small piece of paper stuck. Try looking even closer, and even open a close the access lids to reset the triggered switch. Even a minute pice of paper in the wrong location can cause a sensor to be triggered and until it is reset it will not work.
