Paper feeds in too far for copying

When I go to copy something it seems that the paper feed feeds in too far so that there is too much space at the top of the page. This problem just started recently. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Sounds like the registration clutch is sticking, unplug machine. the reg. clutch is located in the middle of the machine, under the drum unit, it should have about 4 little gray rollers on it, @ the rear of the shaft in the back part of the machine you will see the reg. clutch. take a little bit of alcohol and pour it over the clutch and move the roller to get the toner/dirt out of the clutch. let the alcohol dry. try machine.

Paper will not roll into print positions - brother mfc-j430w


Check the green paper-size end guide inside the paper tray, it may be too far forward. There's a mark for letter-size paper (LTR) and I have my guide set right at the mark even though it seems it ought to be shorter. Be sure your paper is back up against the mark. You might also buy some different paper and see if that's the problem. Sometimes cheap paper will not feed right (I use Staples copy paper in my ink jet and laser printers).

In some cases, not all; the paper feed rollers get dry and slick. If so they tend to feed at times and sometimes stop halfway at times. Look at your rollers.

Equally spaced lines across page only on color copies


If not in the direction of the paper feed then in the direction of the scan head. Dirt on the scan head or bad scan head or scan head connection. Send it back.

During multiple feeds, the 1st copy is okay, but on the next succeding copies, top margins spacing varies that will cause the bottom copies to be cut

I have a Canon PC 980 B&W copier. When I try to print, the "P" (no paper) light comes on, even thoug the paper tray is full.n


YOur problem is likely worn feed rubber. It is an old machine. Has it ever been serviced?
Did this happen after a paper jam?
Try this: UNPLUG the copier Take out the paper tray. Prepare a dry cloth that is dampened with WD 40. Open the door on the right side of the coper. You should see 1 large, gray or black rubber roller. Gently wipe the roller with the WD 40 cloth, slowly turning the roller. It only turns 1 way, towards the exit direction of the paper from the copier.

Let the WD 40 soak in, about 10 minutes. Put the paper tray back in, plug the copier back in and try to make a copy. If it makes a copy, the feed roller needs replaced, If it doesn't make a copy, check the top sheet of paper in the tray. If you see skid marks, you definitely need a feed roller. No, they are not easy to change.

As long as the roller feeds, go for it. When it starts slipping then you'll have to do something about that feed roller.

When I try to make a copy the error code P flashes and paper in unit jams but I can still make copies thru bypass


P error normally indicates that you need to add paper. If there is paper in the cassette and the paper is raising up to the roller then the paper feed rollers are most likely dirty. You can clean the rollers with a cloth and some rubbing alchol. Also make sure you dont have a small peice of paper or something in the paper path causing the paper not to feed. Also listen when you press the prnt/start button and see if you can hear the paper feed clutch turning on then the paper feed rollers turning.

Paper doesn't feed from inside on XD 100 work center (10 years old, lightly used). Despite a full paper drawer, I get the "out of paper" error message.  I can copy by feeding through the back.


On this machine, the feed rollers might be worn down.
Not seeing the machine and by the description. there can also be other possible problem areas, deep in the machine itself.
Does the paper feed partially out?
If it does not, are there paper black scuff marks where the rollers were trying to feed the paper.
Can you hear the solenoids feed the paper?
If the paper does feed and seems crooked, it is possible the paper tray springs need to be stretched out just a little to push the paper tray plate more on the feed rollers.
Make sure the tray is completely up in the latched position so the feed wheels will touch the paper stack itself.
If you have a two paper tray, make sure you tell the machine what size paper you have for each tray.
Run paper in each tray.
Good luck.

Copys fine but it takes the paper crooked


Please follow these steps :


1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.
