Question about Ricoh A2018D Black and White Copier

1 Answer

Paper jam..... It seems that there is a problem right before the paper goes into or at the fusing assembly. The paper jams at that point. It sounds like a gear is slipping but I can't figure out which one it is. Has anyone else ever ran into this with this model of Ricoh?

I have a Laserjet p4014dn printer. it warms normally but once it picks up paper, it jams. i have dried clearing jam several times but on starting to print it jams

Three areas you need to check.1.Pick up area: While pick up roller picking up the paper,delay pick or no pick causes paper jam..
2.Registration assembly area: Once paper picked from the tray, paper leading edge registered by the paper sensor located under the registration assembly.. In case this sensor dusty malfunction or flag damage, paper wont sense. result paper damage..
3.Fusing area. If the paper travels up to fuser area, check paper jammed before entering in fuser(Teflon not rotating properly, replace teflon sleeve) or just crossed?(check paper sensors in fuser unit, clean the sensors & check flags,flag springs.

P3005 jams

Post the exact error message indicated on the printer LCD. 13.01, 02 paper feed issues, worn rollers or jammed paper inside of paper feed assembly.13.05, 06 fusing assembly issues, broken sensor flag in fuser or worn busing on fusing rollers (fusing assembly will be noisy or making grinding sound.) If this the issue being noisy, the fusing assembly has to be replaced along with one of the drive gears, about a 30 min. of work.

My kodak All-in-one printer ESP9 goes instantly in paper jam. Checked for a paper jam and found no paper jam or any paper anywhere inside machine. Pressed down on "OK" button and printer...

Had same issue with my ESP 9, called up the kodak support lines and spoke to them over the phone, getting a replacement sent out free of charge and I've owned this for 1 year and 4 months and only had one prior printer jam which righted itself in the past. Seems like ESP 9's are prone to the unfixable printer jam.
Best bet call kodak and get it sorted.

We have a esp 3250 all in one printer. We had a paper jam. We removed the paper jam and now the printer is telling us that there is still a paper jam. Please tell me what to do next. Thank you.

Reset the printer:

  1. Turn off your printer.
  2. Wait 30 seconds.
  3. Remove all paper from the paper input tray(s).
  4. Make sure the paper output tray are open and free of any paper.
  5. Turn on your printer

Clear paper jam:

  1. Open the paper tray and remove any paper.
  2. Remove any foreign objects.
  3. Remove the cleanout assembly from the rear cleanout area:
    • Gently press and hold the tab on the left side of the cleanout assembly.
    • Carefully pivot the left side of the cleanout assembly toward you to remove it.
  4. Check the inside of your printer for a paper jam. If necessary, slowly pull the jammed paper from your printer.
  5. If paper is not visible, check your printer for foreign objects, such as paper clips or staples. If necessary, carefully remove the foreign objects from your printer.
  6. Check under the printer for obstructions. Remove any debris. If necessary, relocate the printer to a flat, hard surface.

    IMPORTANT: If the cleanout assembly is not installed and seated correctly, paper jam or paper tray empty errors may occur.

  7. Install the cleanout assembly:
    a. Insert the right side of the cleanout assembly into the back of the printer so that the tabs fit into the slots on the right side of the cleanout area.
    b. Rotate the left side of the cleanout assembly until the latch snaps into place.
    c. Pull on the cleanout assembly to insure that it is seated.
  8. Go to Upgrading all-in-one printer with latest firmware and follow the instructions to download the latest firmware version.
  9. Open the printer access door.
  10. Remove any debris or obstructions.
  11. Connect:
    • any cables that were disconnected
    • Power cord

The paper twists when feeding into the printer

If this is happening from the paper tray, you probably could use a new set of rollers for the tray. Also, have you had any paper jams where when you cleared the jam there was some paper missing? We have seen useres clear jams and leave a little bit of paper in the printer which blocks the paper path causing the paper to twist in the path as it hits the jam piece of paper. If the jam is a little after the pickup area you could have a bad registration assembly which is immediately before the area where the paper picks up the image. If this is happening at the exit, it could be a bad fusing assembly.

Paper jams on Canon MF3240

Start with the paper itself. Make sure it is in the machine properly. Here is a short guide on a few things to check:

The problem sounds like your rollers have lost their grip. Remove the paper tray and tip the printer up. Push the red lever on the left of the printer down and you will see the feed mechanism with two wheels. Remove the rubbers on the wheels and turn them inside out. Replace them on the wheels with the worn side now inside and the 'sticky" side out. You should get at least another couple of years worth of use before you need to replace them.

Error 13-jam paper HP Laser 4+

HP LaserJet 4, 4m, 4 Plus and 4m Plus Series Printers - False Error Message 13 PAPER JAM ISSUE: After clearing all jammed paper from the HP LaserJet 4, 4m, 4 Plus, or 4m Plus series printer, the display still reads 13 Paper Jam . Even after cycling the power off and then back on, the error remains. SOLUTION: Open the rear door of the printer. There is a paper sensor near the upper right hand corner of the fusing assembly (just below the right edge of the long yellow warning sticker on the fuser) that can cause paper jam error messages even when there is no jammed paper in the printer. Toggle the thin black plastic lever up and down to make sure it is not stuck or sticky. The lever should be in the down position before closing the back of the printer. If the lever is stuck or missing, the printer will generate a false paper jam message. Hope it will help you !
