You need to change the registration clutch. And never use any sprays or liquids to clean them up. It doesn´t matter what size of paper you use.

What size paper are you using LTR or LRT-R? You may need the regisration clucth & the pre-regisation clutch to solve the problem, it is a timing problem with the two clutchs. If you are using LTR size paper and it shows up try runing the paper the LTR-R direction, the copier runs slower with that size paper and it may off set the timing. You may also have to clean or replace the transfer lift unit, only if you get a error code. Good Luck

The Lexmark x342n all in one printer gives the error code 200.20 i took out the paper jam and tried to print again but it still gives the same fault i also can the drum and tried again but it only...


General tip: If the paper tears when you pull a jam out of the printer, spread the paper out and make sure you have all of the pieces. A small shred left inside can cause another jam.

"I also can the drum" - does this mean you discarded the printer cartridge? I've never seen a cartridge cause a jam. Usually an accordion-fold jam in this area is the result of the fuser rollers not turning or a torn fuser sleeve. A jam without an accordion fold indicates that the paper did not make it into the toner deposition area soon enough - this could be a problem with the pickup roller or the next set of rollers. Worn or dirty rollers can work intermittently before they quit completely.

Also, check the paper detection flag to make sure it isn't hanging up (this is a black plastic tab that sticks into the paper path just before the paper goes under the cartridge, and is pushed up or down by the paper). Look for the U-shaped optical detector that is interrupted by this flag, and make sure it isn't blocked by foreign material.

Why does the paper come out wrinkled from HP Laser jet 3030


Problem: Paper jams as it exits printer, starts out as intermittent and gets progressively worse. Paper has accordion folds at bottom.

Cause: Fuser drives paper out faster than the worn out exit rollers can push it out of the printer. This causes the paper to fold up.

Solution: The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable. If problems persist, the rollers need to be replaced.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

How can I print booklets?


One sheet booklets generally are two-sided printing jobs, accordion fold, gate fold or quarter or half fold styles. Determine which of these styles your's will be and make a "dummy"....it's as simple as folding the paper according to its finished form and marking each of the panels with scaled type or pictures. By making the dummy, the layout will reveal itself when opened and flattened. You will most likely have to "flip" the pages and print each side at separate times unless your machine is a "duplex" type of printer. The "dummy" is the key to the puzzle. Simple as folding and unfolding the panels.

Sharp 2300n gets paper jam. It fold paper like an


When you clear the paper from the machine at the fusing unit, you can see 8 pawls, it looks like a hook but in a flat design. They should be touching the heat roller ( each has a spring to make it flexible ). If one not touching the heat roll it will caused the paper stuck to it so you will have the accordion paper jam.

HP Laserjet 4M makes accordion folds in the paper before jamming


I have found that with laser printers that have an occasional "crinkle" problem that "fanning" the paper does alleviate the problem ... but it will not if there is an actual feed/hardware problem with the rollers

Jam at top message will not clear and no paper in path


Hello Al_edee,

Try to look at the fuser, when it's cooled down, if there are remains of old or stuck paper in it or to exchange the fuser.

Kind regard,

Mark

Paper is coming out folded - accordion-like


Sounds like the fuser is worn out/damaged or maybe your paper is damp.
