How to fix a paper Jam?

quality of paper and the paper thickness setting may have something to do with it.

Fix that Jamming Slide in your Nikon CoolScan 5000ED / SF-210 Slide Feeder

I balked when someone whispered this tip to me; the thought of putting foreign objects into my Nikon CoolScan 5000ED slide scanner with its SF-210 slide feeder seemed asking for trouble.

After about a thousand slides worth of experience, and many batches that seemed to jam every other slide, I gave it a try and boy did it do the trick.

The SF-210 slide feeder works flawlessly with newer, thicker, plastic slide mounts, but if you are archiving and digitizing older, cardboard slides like I am then here's what wasn't printed in the CoolScan user's manual:

Take a AAA battery and place it in rear, left side of the slide feeding tray as pictured below.


The slides will fan out nicely, and your Nikon CoolScan will no longer try to load more than one at a time. Instead it will load them one at a time, 50 per tray, and you can actually walk away from it and let it do its job, just the way you intended to when you bought the SF-210 slide feeder attachment!

I hope that helps.

How do I open it up without damaging anything?

Do not I repeat do not get in there to do some cleaning and repairs. Great you don't know how to properly open it up. I mean no disrespect but you might damage something and really cause your machine to be garbage. I suggest you call the company. Look at the paperwork that came with your product and find the service center or the number of the company that manufactured it. I hope that helps.

Canon imageRUNNER C3200 Copier troubleshooting paper jams. The copier will jam, i will removed the jam paper for i can have a fresh start. i will try to copy again and the paper will jam again. can any one...

It could be a few different reasons the printer is jamming.
The pickup rollers could be worn; There could be an obstruction in the paper path the fuser could be bad
It all depends really on where the unit is jamming (Ie where you have to take the paper out from)
If the copier starts to work, and then gets an error but no paper travels into the unit the pickup rollers are the likely culprit.
If the paper stops somewhere in the middle of the copier, then an obstruction within the paper path must exist or some other internal failure.
IF the paper jams at or in the fuser then yes the fuser is the problem.
Hopefully this helps and feel free to add another comment with more info or questions :)

ADF paper jam, when there is none

If you are receiving an Error Code 103 or a Paper Jam error, but there are no pages in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder), follow the steps below:
  1. Close the scanning application (such as PaperPort)
  2. Turn off the scanner and the computer
  3. If you have a combination ADF with a Flatbed scanner, unplug the ADF cable from the base of the scanner
  4. Plug the ADF cable back in
  5. Turn on the scanner power
  6. Turn on the computer
  7. Try scanning again
For a Paper Jam or Error Code 103, make sure that the ADF cable in the rear is connected to the scanner base. Check the flatbed to make sure that it is clear. A page incorrectly placed on the flatbed may interfere with a page feeding through the ADF.

If your scanner stops scanning due to a paper jam in the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF), a warning dialog box appears after a few moments.

To clear a paper jam:
  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.
  2. Remove the jammed paper and close the cover.
If you are receiving a paper jam error, or if the scanner is running continuously, check to make sure the paper sensor arm is not stuck down.
  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.
  2. Look for the small black plastic arm
  3. When you press on this arm, it should move freely up and down
  4. If the arm is stuck down, please contact Technical Support for troubleshooting options
  5. Close the ADF cover.

Slide holder is stuck in Dimage scanner

I solved the issue by opening the casing of the scanner after having unplugged it front the computer and it's power supply.

There are 3 rounded head screws that I unscrewed to do this.

1) The single screw at the back of the unit.
2) The two screws that are closest to the rear of the unit underneath the unit.

The tricky part is that the casing that makes up the sides, top and the back of the unit has to then be pulled back and a bit up to be released and the plastic hings of the casing will catch parts of the internal frame. Therefore great care and patience must be taken when pulling the case back and off of the rest of the frame of the unit.

With the casing removed, I slowly pushed the film holder towards the back of the unit until the front door of the casing could be fully opened manually, and then using one hand I kept the door open while slowly pushing the film holder towards the front of the unit with the other hand.

After that I put the casing back on, and the unit is running normally again, although I suspect that this jamming is a sign of wear and tear on this unit as it has been used a lot.


There is a mirror within the unit and I would advise as a precaution that no contact should be made with that mirror unless you are willing to risk the unit not being able to focus properly or showing smudges or scratch marks on the produces scans!
