DI-450 C-143E


This is originally caused by 'stuff' being stacked on top of the document feeder. When the tray tried to raise the originals into position to feed through the scanner, it is held down by the rear paper guide hitting the stack of 'stuff'. Do this often enough and the release mechanism that prevents damage to the gears and motors gets worn or damaged.

Opening and closing the front door of the copier will reset the error message. If the error reoccurs for no apparent reason, then the tray lift mechanism needs to be serviced. This takes about an hour for a tech to perform.

There is one fix the user might be able to apply. There is a metal tab that sticks out the front of the document tray. When the tray is lifted, the tension on this tab is released. This tab is what applies tension to the internal lift gears for the tray lift. If you can 'adjust' this tab to cause more tension to be applied when the tray is dropped back to its normal position, this might be enough to not get any more C-143E's under normal conditions. Caution is called for as the assembly will not survive any rough handling.

you have to select the paper size from the computer while giving printout from computer and apply the changes you make.and while copying the page from the scanner you have to change the printersettings by clicking the menu button in the printer.

Which way does the paper go into the feed when faxing?


Load the originals, with the print side up, into the document feeder tray. If you are sending a single-page fax, such as a photograph, you can also load the original on the glass. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

HP 4215 won't feed envelopes


I assume you are using the manual feed try, if so there is a tire (rubber) near the center of the tray, just use any penetrating oil (such as triflow or wd-40) and clean the tire. Same thing goes for the tray assembly, there will be one half circle tire (flat on one side round on the other its the round side that needs cleaning).

How do I scan a bunch of originals from the tray and get 1 file for each page?


Loading originals to scan
Use these instructions to load originals into your device for scanning. For the best quality
scans, use the flatbed scanner. See Selecting media for the automatic document feeder
(ADF) for guidelines on choosing original documents for scanning.
Loading originals onto the flatbed scanner
1. Make sure that the automatic document feeder (ADF) input tray is free of media.
2. Lift the flatbed scanner lid.
3. Place the original document face-down on the flatbed scanner with the top, left corner of
the document at the lower-right corner of the glass.
4. Gently close the lid.
5. The document is ready to be scanned.
CAUTION To prevent damaging the device, do not allow the scanner lid to fall onto the flatbed scanner
surface. Always close the scanner lid when the device is not in use.
Loading originals into the automatic document feeder (ADF)
input tray
Note The ADF capacity is up to 50 sheets of 75 g/m2 (20 lb) media (depending on the thickness of
the media), or fewer sheets if the stack fills the ADF.
The minimum size for media in the ADF is 127 by 127 mm (5 by 5 inches). For smaller sizes
use the flatbed scanner. The maximum size for media in the ADF is 215.9 by 381 mm (8.5 by
15 inches).
1. Make sure that the flatbed scanner contains no media.
2. Close the flatbed scanner cover and put the top end of the stack of originals into the ADF
input tray, with the media stack face-up and the first page to be scanned on top of the
stack.
3. Slide the stack into the ADF input tray until it does not move any farther.

Hello, I have an HP OfficeJet 7310 all-in-one print/scanner/fax etc. I purchased about two years ago but don't use very often. Yesterday while I was trying to send a fax I received a loud winding-up...


I have same problem! The copy/scan function would feed the orginal from the ADF halfway and instead of making a normal loud feeding noise it made a horriable alarming sound and displayed an error message. To fix it: I waited a day or two and bang the top of the feeder cover with normal force while the original is feeding. It appeared the problem is resolved. I have no idea what the problem is, however I think if this work for few months at a time is fine by me.

Why is my printer saying original loaded?


Is there a piece of paper in the top (copier/fax) feed, or under the top against the glass? Original Loaded means there's some document in place, ready to be copied or faxed. If you remove that, the message should go away. If there isn't one, check inside the feed on top, and see if there's anything stuck in there that could be blocking the sensor.
