Question about Toshiba DP-85F Fax
I have a Toshiba DP85F that is saying there is a paper jam but there isn't one. It will not allow faxes to be sent out but we can receiving incoming ones. Please let me know how to fix this problem. Thank you!

You may also have a problem with the paper feed (clutch, dirty feed/pick up tires) section, or even a dirty sensor as Jay mentioned. A sensor in modern office equipment is generally a photo sensor, which means it shoots light from one side to be detected on the other side of it. If it's dirty, it will give you a flase reading. Try cleaning the tires that pick up the paer from the tray (don't force them down if they won't rotate easily) with mild soap and water on a rag, and also try fresh paper. Sometimes if paper has been sitting for a while, or in damp conditions, it will pick up moisture and give you paper feed problems... which is what it sounds like you are having. Sounds like the paper may need even be making it to the sensor in the 1st place if it on comes out of the tray 1/2 an inch. Good luck

Your document feed is separate from your received and report prints so that's why your reports are printing ok and the document feeder jams. When you open up the doc feeder and look inside the machine you will see a roller and above it on the cover that opens you will see a rubber pad. Clean both the roller and pad (in fact anything in there that is rubber) with a rubber cleaner, alcohol, or even soap and water on a cloth without it been dripping wet. You will probablt find that they are very dirty. The roller feeds the document in so that needs to be clean and the pad helps to keep all the other docs from feeding in at the same time and that should be very clean so it produces good friction.
