Question about Printers & Copiers
Posted by yia2008 on Sep 23, 2008
Paper Jam occurs in different areas of the copier. Can you recommend an easy fix for this? Is there lubricant that needs to be applied on rollers or is there another problem? Using 20lb office depot brand copy paper. Also tried Xerox Brand 24 lb copy paper.
Thank you. Comment by yia2008, posted on Sep 23, 2008 Hello,
The copier appears to be in good physical condition. I purchased it used. So I'm not sure of the age of it. It has 89,000 copies on it.
It paper jams often, but will sometimes make 5 or so copies before it jams. it appears to be jamming mostly at the exit point, but sometimes will jam near the enter point from the paper tray (more regularly at the exit point of the copy process.
Hope this helps you determine the problem. Please let me know if you need additional information.

You should first have a check over the roller . Mostly the problem will be the roller only .
But let me know how old is your copier ?
Depending on it we can solve your problem .
On this type of machine, it can be very involved and a service call maybe needed.
What you have here is some rollers are not driving, and they are stalling too quick for you to see. There is a one way clutch on the transport after the copy exits the fuser. This exit transport has many gears and rollers on it.
At about this age the rollers get bound in the plastic bearings. It is very hard to get to them because of the tight fit. Complete dissesembly of this area is a must.
On the drive roller where the gears are held, the plastic bushings are very tight causing binding. When they are turned by hand they should turn free, you will find they are not.
Also this assembly has a switch actuator. Because the assembly is close to the fuser the tip of the actuator is either broken off or decayed over time. The switch needs to be replace and even the sensor itself.
I am sure even if you try to find the parts in the service manual, they can be very hard to find in the images.
If you do have the manual you will find the parts are very difficult to see and when you order them it is not the part you expected to get.
Place the service call, this is a very involved service repair.
As long as the machine is handled good, the machine will work fine.

Sorry for responding late .
As you said you have problem at entry level sheet stops before entering the rolls more likely to be dirty entry , drive problem or sensor problem.
Running sheets with dark lead edge can cause sheets to stick to rollers,try running blank sheets to clean up, if they get through then try normal copies
If it doesnot work .
Rebuild fuser and clean out recycling pump and hoses.
