Question about Sharp AR-M450N Copier
Whenever I try to scan multiple documents the scanner with stop after about 5 and say there is a misfeed, when there isn't. I don't know if it has to do with the rollers not grabbing the next piece of paper or what. It drives me nuts when I have to scan a huge stack of documents. Do you have any advice?
What you want to try it take a blank paper and on the middle of the page on front put a small ammount of rubbing alcohol on it, then enter the paper into the scanner and hold it so you jam it as it feeds. Then look at the area you placed the alcohol for the presence of some dirt, a blackish smear will normally appear on the paper, Do that 4 or 5 times and that will clean the wheels well. If it helps, then most likely you have just textured the rollers for a short period of time and they should be replaced. But the reason why you want to try that is to be sure the problem is slipping by the roller texture and not the roller drives, ( a clutch or motor). But since it sounds like you give your scanner a workout, the rollers are most likely the problem. Replace all the feed rollers and also look for a pad that presses against the feed roller. Depending on the type of scanner there will be either one roller that barely moves or a rubber pad that is called a skid or ****** pad, what they do is limit or ****** the feed of multiple sheets of paper. I would recommend replacing that , pad or stationary roller, it is important in feeding.
