Okay, I figured it out - if you unhinge the paper tray holder and you look at the bottom of it there is a little circular indentation that is where one part of the spring goes. I surperglued it that. Then if you look inside the paper holder you will see another circular type indent that has a tiny little plastic latch at the top of it - it will match up with the one on the paper try holder. I put the superglued spring into the printer and shoved it down with the handle of a comb and a long kitchen knife.

Hope that helps!

The photopaper tray goes in, but the printer feed cant grab the paper. it is the correct direction, so i don't know whats going on.


Sometimes the printer does not feed the paper because it is too thick. Try to check the GSM of the photo paper, it should be 180 or 235.

Xerox XC830, flashing 'P'


I have used this tip numerous times with great success.
Remove the paper tray and take all the paper out of the tray. Now on the metal plate that springs up where the paper goes there are 2 fiber pads that are about an inch square. Spray these 2 pads with glass cleaner until they are wet. Wipe off the metal around the pads and re-install the paper tray with NO paper in the tray. Now tray and make a copy....you will of course get the "P" light. Just hit C to clear it and hit the print button again. Do this at least 4 or 5 times. What you are doing here is cleaning the feed rollers by having them turn against the pads with the cleaner on them. Next take out the tray, blot the pads somewhat dry and add paper to the tray, re-install the tray and try copying again.
Should feed paper now unless you have a mechanical issue.
Good Luck.

The printer wont load the paper in anymore it will grab it on the left side but not the right


Please help me here. What model printer are you using?

Does it have multiple paper trays?

More then likley, the paper feed rollers are either worn or contaminated with paper dust and are not letting the paper be grabbed and pulled from the tray properly.

It could also be the paper pick solenoid not mechanically pushing both sides of the spring loaded tray up into the paper feed roolers. Or in the case of a true paper tray, preventing both sides of the tray from lifting with the same force.

Clp 300 won't feed paper


Remove the paper tray. Gently pull the sides apart at the front end of the tray, to release the spring-loaded ramp which pushes the leading edge of the paper upwards.

Underneath this ramp are two compression springs approximately 1/2" in diameter and 2" long (above, left). The problem with the paper feed appears to be that these springs very quickly get fatigued and fail to exert enough pressure to push the tray upwards. Replace the long, thin springs with a more compact pair, with better compression, like one of the pairs on the right. I am still experimenting to find the ideal size, but this has definitely helped. Our local Ace Hardware store has a fairly good selection of compression springs. Home Depot had nothing remotely suitable.

You may find that an extra pair of hands and a pair of long-nosed pliers make the job easier when you are trying to keep the springs in position as you replace the ramp in the tray.

Paper tray won't feed paper & I get a false paper Jam code


This might work for you - it worked for me. HP paper was feeding crooked. Checked the "Paper Type/Quality" in the printing options window - mine was set to Photo Paper. When I changed it to Plain Paper, the paper fed evenly. Hope this works for you.

Xerox 6100 laser - paper jams if paper tray low on paper


There could be two things. First, be sure the paper tray is not binding. The metal plate in the middle should spring up easily. The friction pad should be firmly attached to the tray, but not extending over the metal portion. The second thing would be to clean or replace the feed rollers. They are inside the machine above where the tray would sit. Since the tray feeds when full, I don't think you have a clutch problem. Let me know how it goes.

Error 13.20.00


There is a paper feed sensor located behind Tray 1 where the tension spring gets knocked loose, therefore the sensor arm is still blocking the sensor. You have to remove all covers and the Tray 1 Assembly and re-install the spring which goes into a slot on the plastic frame.

Paper jam


I too have this infuriating problem and the reason has already been pinpointed very well it is indeed the front rubber pinch cam not grabbing the paper well. I have approached this problem from another angle... under the front sprung loaded flap on the paper tray
there are two compression springsapprx 1/2" in dia. Gently prise apart the 2 flap pivot (on the extended arms) to gain access to the springs ,pull out the springs and either replace them with slightly stronger ones or pull the existing springs apart to retension them and pop them back (long-nosed pliers or tweezers) this will restore the spring tension lost during use with the rubber pinch cam.
