Question about Xerox 5855C Copier

Xerox 5855C copier

The paper won't feed through at the point of exit from the copier (I'm not talking about the sheet feeder on top). If I stand at the paper exit point and grab the a paper as it appears at the exit I can pull it out. Other wise it crinkles at the point and jams.

Any thoughts.

Yes, the exit fuser rolls do wear out. Actually they just break apart untill there is no roller there. Sometimes there might be one or two, there should be one in each slot, about 4.
Also if you are going ot take out the fuser, be very careful.
The fuser exit switch in time will crumble and fall apart. It may appear to be ok, until you actually touch it, then the plastic just falls apart. This would need to be repalced.
The fuser roll has a lot of presure on it, sometimes the fuser bearings will actually freeze stoping the fuser roll. On back of the fuser assembley are a set of gears. The small ones on the back wear and will cause the fuser roll not to drive. These are common parts that need to be replaced.
The stirpper fingers need to be checked they get a lot of wear.
At the back of the exit transport roller there are some gears and one of them has a one-way clutch check it to see if it is slipping. A touch of friction oil can help with the drive of this clutch.
This machine has a vacume fan which helps trnasport the paper on the vacume belts. This is located on the back, at the bottom middle of the machine. This fan can turn very slow at times causing false jams.
If all else fails, call Xerox for service repairs.

I don't think this is your problem, you stated that you could grab the paper and pull it out of the machine. If it is jamming on the fingers then the paper would never come out far enough for you to grab it unless it is coming out crooked, meaning that maybe a finger is grabing on one end and turning the paper enough that you can get ahold on it. If I remember correctly there is a set of feed out rolls right at the exit, check to see if these are turning when making a copy, if they do not turn before the paper gets to them then check to see why they are not turning. If they are turning then make sure the idler rollers on top of the feed out roll is putting pressure on the rolls. There should be four of these, I've seen them bend and lose pressure. Hope this is helpful.

If it does like an accordion then replace the (fingers, claws, scrapers) these are the sharp claws that ride on the hot fuser roller, they are supposed to help guide the paper out, but whenthey wear out they catch it.

When making photocopies, the automatic top paper feeder is grabbing more than one page at a time. How do we fix it?


Clean all the rollers in the ADF with a damp lint free cloth. Depending on wear, they may need to be changed, but try cleaning first. Where the paper stack rests there will be either a pad or roller, make sure it is clean too.

Button next to the button on/of flashes 3 times - still - 3 times etc


Hello,
The light is the indication of a Paper feed problem,

Either the printer is out of paper:

a Load paper.



OR


b Press the Paper Feed button.
If the paper is jammed Then

Do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of

your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper or 10 mm (0.39 in.).

You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, A4

size paper should extend above the top of the paper support. (Letter size paper

should align with the top of the paper support.) Make sure the paper support is fully

extended.

The paper guide is against the left side of the paper.
The paper guide does not cause the paper to bow in the sheet feeder.

Canon MP730 Paper feed is not working correctly.....keeps jamming and feeds the paper incorrectly


There are two feeders on this MP730. There is the sheet feeder on top and there is the paper feeder on the back. You can have problems with both.

The sheet feeder on top.
If the problem is things go through somewhat sideways, and if this is the problem, stuff some postit notes between the back grey thing and the feeder tray to eliminate this problem. Add or subtract to the wad to make it right.

If the problem is it does not grip the sheet, what I used to do is to help it through by one sheet at a time, painful. I got frustrated with this so for scanning, I have a Snap Scan 1500, which is faster and better.

The paper feeder.
A small piece of paper left in the paper infeed path can cause a major problem. You cannot have anything in the paper path that will skew the paper, so you must get any little bit of restriction out of there.
As the printer gets older, you will have to produce your own guides to prevent this skewing, as the guides on the printer do not do this well. I use clamps and wooden guides to keep things in line.

E2 error code on Xerox work centre xd series 120f copier


e2 is a paper jam problem. check that the paper guides in the cassette are positioned aginst the paper properly. Also remove the toner and drum cartridge. Clean all rubber rollers that you can get to with a damp cloth ( water). You are especially trying to clean the upper and lower registration rollers that "pinch" the paper. I hope that this helps.

Paper feed on Canon i 350n ink jet printer


If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed:
Press the power button to turn the printer off.
Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer.
Close the front cover.
Press the power button to turn the printer back on.
Resend your document to print.

Ensure that:
The paper is a recommended paper for inkjet printers.
You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder.
The printer is on a flat, level surface.
The left paper guide is against the side of the paper.
You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper.
The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder.
Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is against the side of the envelopes.
Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver.
You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.

I have a Lexmark X3550 printer There is a paper way down inside that cannot be reached Tried the automatic remove and it does nothing. What should I do?This machine is only a few months old.


Bending the bottom exit tray will allow it to be removed. Simply remove tray and wipe rollers right in front of the bar that the ink slides back and forth on. Most printers get a lttle dust on the rollers then they wont feed. Hope this Helps.Sincerely Brian @ Game-On Computers.

Paper jam


Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.

If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
Turn the printer off.
Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed:
Press the power button to turn the printer off.
Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer.
Close the front cover.
Press the power button to turn the printer back on.
Resend your document to print.
