You need a separation pad kit for your machine. The parts are relatively inexpensive. There are 2 ways to accomplish the fix. You can install a separation pad overlay kit which can be done without disassembly which is simply adding a peice of rubber over the existing pad or a complete roller & pad kit which requires disassembly of the machine. The easiest is the overlay however best and longest fix is the full kit replacement. Here's a link to each of the kits off of ebay.

Overlay Kit: (5 minute install) Approx. $10.00

Paper wont feed


there are multiple reasons that paper won't feed into a printer. the pickup roller may be worn and doesn't grip onto the paper, or the printer tray may not be lifting the paper to the pickup roller.

Canon faxphone L80 parts available? paper feed shaft broke in half


The L80 printer guts are very similar to the HP 5L and HP 6L printer (Not well known, but the printing engines on many HP printers are made by Canon). In fact it is almost possible to use a 5L/6L toner cartridge in the L80, but as I recall there was a plastic nub that prevented it from fitting properly. This is probably meant to force the user to buy more expensive Canon toner carts instead of using cheaper generics for the 5L/6L. Try HP PartSurfer and you may be able to locate the part that you need.

Parts are no longer available. You might be able to clean the feed roller by removing the toner cartridge and cleaning the gray roller with isoprpyl alcohone.

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.

HP Laserjet 5L feeds multiple pages through at a time


It prob. needs an overhaul/reconditioning/cleaning to soften up or replace the rollers and rubber pads in the paper path. I imagine it needs this about every 5-6 years. Don't know if new parts are still available for this great old machine, but it's worth trying to keep it alive, at least until you change computers and don't have a parallel output port anymore ;^).

Permanent alert of paper jam after cleaning a printer HP 5L


The paper path/paper guide may need replacement. I would also get a maintenance kit and replace all the rollers.
