Minolta ep 1080 copier document feeder will not feed
It starts to feed and suddenly stops and shows a paper jam, but there is no jam, could this be a sensor , or maybe a circuit board, maybe dip switches.. had some sticky stuff on rollers, but I cleaned those up. no change.

Re: minolta ep 1080 copier document feeder will not feed
What kind or adf do you have? Will it only do one sided copies (AFR-1) or can it do duplexing (AFR-9) ? If you have the one sided doc. feeder the sticky stuff you cleaned off is mostly the paper feed roller are mealting away.... Is the paper stoping right where the rollers are? If so you will need to replace the rollers and the shaft, there are one piece and one part number... It is a BEAR to replace the shaft, if you have never done it before. Also, that may be a hard part to find, it is a olld feeder. One other thing to look for is the paper stopping in the same spot & is it being shifted to one side like it is being blocked, you may have staple or paper clip or a post-it note stuck there. Good Luck

Please check the sensors and actuators ,open & close front door to reset nisfeed.Clarification Top feed = Automatic Document Feeder?If YES,please verify misfeed paper beetween coverplaten and feedbelt(Yellow).Is necessary disassembly the ADF.Good luck.You will find a little paper.
If the machine sees the ADF ( auto document feeder) but does not feed the paper? Does it try to feed the paper? Does it pull the paper is a little and jam? If the machine sees the ADF and it starts to feed the paper but jams --- clean the feed rollers/ tires with rubber restorer or a high alcohol base cleaner. Also a mylar could be pulled into the paper path blocking the feeding of the paper. Take a thin piece of cardboard ( like the devider in a case of pop) and slide the cardboard about 3- 6 inches into the feed just past the feed roller. Gently pull back out and try to feed paper again. If those do not work and the machine does see the ADF, you may need switch, sensor, actuator or feed motor.
Does the adf show a paper jam? If so remove it or look for some thing blocking the paper path and remove it. Also try to turn off the copier and disreconnect the doc feeder and turn it back on and see what happens.
