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

When paper is fed into the auto sheet feed the left side of the paper feeds, but the right side is not feeding at all....resulting in a paper jam. You can hear the printer printing but the paper doesn't go...


helpful to know what kind of machine you have :\. In general one of the paper pickup roller pads is probably rotated 180 degrees out and not touching the paper, many rollers are triangular/square and have to be oriented correctly. Other causes are the plastic gears which if stripped means a junk printer unless its an expensive one. Stripped gears because someone pulled a jammed page out too violently is the usual cause. Check also for embedded staples/paperclips in the mechanism.

The paper is not feeding through. it is getting caught on one side, then jamming


the roller on one side isn't picking the paper while the one on the other side is. Hwnce the uneven pull on the paper force the paper sideways and then jams.

This is usually caused by dust in the interior of the printer so try this:-

This is sort of scenario could be caused by dust inside the printer. Dust prevents the rollers from having a firm grip on the paper while picking paper. When one roller has a firm grip and rolls the paper well while the other doesn’t, jam/crumpling results. So I will suggest you get a long handle brush and try to reach as far inside the printer as possible and brush (from the back and front; if you have a blower please use it as well). This, if properly done should do it. Brush especially the rollers etc.

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.

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.

Trouble with paper feed


Frequent jams are because either scanner picks up more than one paper or does not pickup at all. If scanner picks up more than one paper, then paper is sticky. If the paper is thin, it can pick up two at a time. Fan the papers so that they are not sticky.

Paper at the point of entry into the scanner must be crisp. If folded or 'dog-eared' trim it. Rotate the paper if any other side is crisp, roate the image later.

Clean all the rollers thoroughly, the pickup roller, retard roller and other rollers in the scanner. One can rotate the inner rollers and clean totally, not just waht is seeable area. If the rubber is worn out, it must be replaced. TRy a single page to check if the rubber is okay. Jarring noise is because the motor is 'stopped' and cant rotate because paper is stuck. This can affect motor/inner parts, but is designed for normal use.
