Paper feed feeding multiple sheets plus noisy feed

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Apr 07, 2009

    I have similar problem.

    I just bought canon pixman ip 2600 and anytime I feed the paper feeder with more that one paper, the whole paper comes out while printing.



    This is a new printer and I do not expect the rollers to be dry just like that.

    I also followed the installation procedure and I am convinced that there is not installation error.

    Please help.

    YOU MAY CONTACT ME ON MY EMAIL thambisa2003@yahoo.co.uk

    Thanks all

The most likely cause of this problem is a paper feeder malfunction. Because you were not specific in the model you have, repair could be rather variable.

One plausible cause is the paper rollers have tried up. Normally when the small rubber rollers grip the paper, the friction generated by a properly moisturized feeder can grip a single sheet. If your rollers are getting dry, you can use some rubbing alcohol on a q-tip and rub it on the rollers. Make sure not to use isopropyl alcohol, that will cause the rollers to dry out even more. I've heard of people using WD-40, but I've never tried that. You would want the WD-40 to dry a while otherwise it will leave greasy residue on your nice white paper.

Another cause could be a small object (paperclip, staple, raisins) stuck in the paper feeding mechanism. Carefully inspect the feeder, comparing one side to another, and gently pushing on the movable parts to make sure they can move free. You don't want to push too hard or you could knock out a needed spring or damage the plastic gears.

Hope this helps!

Hello can you assist I can not figure out why the CX8310 Epson printer won't allow me to feed paper into it.


  • If paper doesn't feed, remove it from the sheet feeder. Reload it against the right edge, behind the tabs, then slide the left edge guide against the paper. Make sure the paper is not in front of the feeder guard.
  • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.
  • Don't load too many sheets at once (up to 20 sheets of photo paper, 80 sheets of Premium Bright White paper, or 100 sheets of plain paper).

    Paper feed feeds more than 1 sheet at a time


    Hello,

    he problem you are having is caused by a worm separation pad assembly. This assembly is what separates the paper into individual sheets. It takes about 30 minutes to disassemble the printer and replace the part. Most printer repair shops will do the repair for you but the cost may be a bit much. If you are interested in doing the repair yourself we do stock the part. We can provide the separation assembly and a service manual on CD that gives directions for replacing the parts plus other information about the printer. The part and guide runs $14.95 plus shipping. Let me know if you need one, tech

    MP830, how to retrieve faxes in memory to my PC


    -

    - A margin appears
    on printouts.
    2 B Paper feed
    Improper paper
    feeding:
    - Multi-feeding
    - Skewed paper
    feeding
    - Paper jam
    - Paper feeding from the
    ASF
    - Plain paper
    - Highest print speed
    (Custom setting to 5)
    - In the high temperature
    and high humidity
    environment
    - In the low temperature
    and low humidity
    environment
    - With the maximum
    amount of paper set (13
    mm)
    In the high temperature
    and high humidity
    environment, paper
    becomes wavy; in the
    low temperature and
    low humidity
    environment, paper
    curls significantly.
    When the maximum
    amount of paper is set
    in the ASF, and if the
    paper-return tab fits in a
    wave or curl of the
    paper, the tab slips and
    does not catch paper
    properly, causing paper
    feed problems.
    - Reduce the amount of
    paper set in the ASF to
    half (approx. 5 mm
    high).
    - Multiple sheets of
    paper feed at the
    same time.
    - Paper feeds at an
    angle.
    - A paper jam
    occurs.
    3 C Print results
    Skewed paper
    feeding (at the
    level of +/- 1%)
    - Paper feeding from the
    ASF
    - Credit Card size
    Since coaxial tolerance
    between the pinch roller
    and the LF roller, which
    determines the paper
    feed alignment, is
    0.2mm, skewed paper
    feeding can occur.
    However, according to
    the field data of current
    models, the skewness
    level caused by the
    coaxial tolerance of
    0.2mm is within the
    criteria of +/- 1%, thus
    the phenomenon is left
    as is.
    - Align the paper guide to
    the paper edge tighter
    than usual.
    - Paper feeds at an
    angle.
    - A margin appears
    on printouts.
    4 A Print results
    Soiling on the
    back side of paper
    (lines or streaks
    parallel to the
    paper feed
    direction)
    - After continuous
    borderless printing of
    small sized paper (such
    as 4 x 6), when a larger
    sized paper (such as A4)
    is printed.
    - With Photo Paper Plus
    Double Sided or
    postcards, the
    phenomenon is likely to
    be noticeable and to be
    complained of by users,
    as printing is performed
    on both sides of such
    paper.
    In borderless printing,
    printing is performed to
    the size slightly larger
    than the paper size, and
    ink off the paper is
    absorbed by the platen's
    ink absorber. Absorbed
    ink may attach to the
    platen rib(s) after
    several dozen sheets are
    printed, causing soiling
    at the leading edge of
    paper or on the back
    side of paper.
    1. Perform Bottom plate
    cleaning (from the
    MP driver or via the
    operation panel) up to
    3 times*1.
    2. If soiling on the paper
    still remains after 3
    times of Bottom plate
    cleaning, wipe the
    platen rib(s) and their
    surroundings with a
    cotton swab.
    - Paper gets
    smeared.
    - The back side of
    paper gets
    smeared.
    Soiling on paper in
    automatic duplex
    printing (lines or
    streaks
    perpendicular to
    the paper feed
    direction)
    - Automatic duplex
    printing (Photo Paper
    Plus Double Sided,
    postcards, plain paper)
    On the rib(s) inside the
    sheet feed unit used for
    duplex printing, ink
    mist may accumulate,
    smearing paper.
    Temporary operational
    solution:
    Cancel automatic duplex
    printing, and manually
    print each side of paper.
    Cleaning by user:
    1. Perform Bottom plate
    cleaning (from the
    MP driver or via the
    operation panel) up to
    3 times*1.
    - Paper gets
    smeared.
    - The back side of
    paper gets
    smeared.
    - Even after Bottom
    plate cleaning
    was performed,
    and the platen
    ribs were cleaned
    with cotton swab,
    paper gets
    smeared.

    The paper feed solenoid is sticking, it can be seen thru a hole in the back with the door opened. Not easy to get to, but I have been able to bend the stop tab slightly and run just fine.

    Epson CX7800 3 in one printer feeds mulltiple sheets.


    This is usually caused by a dirty or dented feed roller.

    The feed roller is the black wheel that has s flat side to it above the paper tray. Try using a Q-tip and some rubbing alcohol to clean it. Then give it another whirl.

    As with the ink on the paper. This is usually caused by leaky printheads. Epson printers are notorious for having the printheads die on them, but usually from the ink drying out. Check and see if the bottom of the printhead can be reached and cleaned by Q-tip or cotton swab. Give it a good cleaning using rubbing alcohol. Don't go over board as the alcohol will dilute the ink.

    Paper feed


    Have you tried a different brand of paper?. When choosing the paper try and select one which the sheets can slide easily over each other. I had loads of problems with multiple feeds and paper jams with a cheap paper. I then changed to a heavier 90gsm all in one paper from staples and have had no more problems since.(and i just chuck the paper in straight from the packet with no fanning etc)

    HP paper jam


    That is usually caused by the paper feed rollers being cover with paper dust. Take a clean cotton pad and alcohol and clean the rollers :turninig each roller as you clean it. if it has a rear dor, open it to get better access to the rollers.

    Automatic Paper feed


    Check the feeder roller inside the printer for any foreign substance stuck to the roller, this may cause it not to grip properly. You can also try a few sheets at a time and make sure the paper tray is gripping the paper, but not too hard. If this fails, the roller may be out of place somewhat, try to reposition it. Let me know how you get on.
