Question about Fax Machines

I have a canon L380s Fax with a paper feed problem, the paper pick-up tyre constantly rotates, causing, obviously! paper jams. I had the side off but can't quite work out how the planetary gear clutch system works! Can you help? Thanks

Cannon laser fax 1060 P "check paper size"


Hi Margaret
Ok,the problem normaly with this model is in the feeding of the paper.For some or other reason the paper is moving to slow threw the machine and then the machine detect it as a longer size paper.

  • Clean the rollers that pick the paper up and clean also the sepatation rubbers under neath the paper pick up rollers.This rubbers is called the separation pads.
  • To clean this rollers,remove the cartridge and you will see the feed roller at the back.
I think what happened with the move the machine might collected dust and now the rollers are slipping.

Thanks for you support

Sir, can anyone help me with my fax (canon fax l295)for a problem, it was always indicating that "load paper" even though i put paper on the tray once it was start feeding it makes an paper jam error and...


You either have a paper path blockage or your feed rollers are worn. You'll need to take it apart to check though. Try removing paper, turning machine off and on and re-inserting paper. Remember to fan (separate) paper before loading, it could be static causing the sheets to stick together and jam in the machine.

Display ... ''clear paper jam''


First clear the possible paper jam using a air blower on the rollers and sensors most possible cause is the paper dust which block the sensors. then do a power cycle by unplugging the cable and leave it turned off for 5 mins and then reconnect, it should take care of the issue.

Fax machine says Rec. Paper Jam


Check the paper, is it loaded correctly? Have you fanned the paper to break the production bond? Is the paper a good quality? Remove all of the paper and check inside for any foreign objects.(paper clips, staples) Reinstall paper. Mark the top sheet of paper with an x, press the copy button, does it even try to pull in the paper?
If yes, the pick up rollers are likely dirty, and need to be cleaned, remove the paper and clean the rollers with some isopropal alcohol, and a soft cloth. (available at a drug store) Retry
If it doesn't try at all, then turn machine off and unplug it for a few minutes,re connect, power up. Any change? if not machine has a feed problem that may require a Tech to look at.

Hope this is of some help.

TRANSMISSION REPORTS ARE COMING OUT OF THE BACK OF MACHINE INSTEAD OF FRONT AS USUAL MACHINE NO L380S


There is a paper delivery selector switch on the front of the machine just below the control panel. Setting the switch one way delivers printed paper out the front. In the other direction, the paper will feed out just above the paper tray on top of the machine.

Paper Jam


hey, give this a try:

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Paper jam inside


check inside the machine for a little black sensor flag that may be stuck.. It should be able to swing freely. There are two or three of them in various places of the paper path.
