Looking for a wheel replacement for HP 2710 all-in-one printer

The rubber cover on one of the paper feeder wheels on the back of my printer (where paper is fed into print mechanism) is missing - causing the paper to move slightly and the print to not be legible in the area where this wheel is aligned.

Hi There are two possibilities to solving this problem that I can think of.

1st The ideal solution would be a replacement rubber tyre from a scrap machine. Try your local friendly computer repairer too see if they have one which will fit or taken from a scrap machine. Try your local recycling/rubbish dump for one. A lot of HP's use the same tyre system so don't just look for your model number.

2nd ... and this is from the old days. Use two suitably sized elastic bands round the wheel core - one at each side.

Whichever solution you decide on, you will probably need to remove the pick-up roller.

Another thought occurs that if you have three rollers (I don't know this printer) then nick one from the centre wheel and swap for the outer one.
It's always worth a good clean of the rollers on any HP printer from time to time in any case. Use Isopropnol (Video head or similar cleaning fluid) or any alcohol spirit with a debris free cloth. I prefer a whisky 'cos it's a good excuse to imbibe the left overs!

Will not manually feed paper


Are you talking about the document feeder or the copier. On both counts try to clean the rubber wheels above the feed tray, or up on the document feeder with something like windex or a water cleaner. make sure the wheels are dry, and watch to see if the wheels are turning. If wheels are turning when you feed you need new wheels, sometimes you can rough them up with a grit nail file, or sandpaper.

I have an hp OfficeJet G85. The automatic document feeder won't work about half the time. Is there a way to clean or fix the feeder? Everything else works fine.


Hello,

Depends on how the ADF is malfunctioning. If it just plain doesn't work, then you are likely looking at a control cable / connector issue.

If it grabs multiple pages at same time, or doesn't want to grab pages at all, you can try using a "cleaning sheet" available for inkjet printers. Most office supply stores will sell these. The cleaning sheet helps to clean the paper path (wheels, idlers, etc). You should also be able to pop open the ADF cover, and remove any paper debris that is present. See owners manual for this procedure though, it is easy to break the cover.

There are two sets of rollers inside the HPLJ4 series. One set is immediately above the document feeder tray. A second set is inside the rear cover. The problem you describe can often be fixed by cleaning the existing rollers. I would remove the toner cartridge from the front of the machine, then I would get a hose type vacuum cleaner and a small paint brush. I would clean the inside of the machine. I would open the back cover and visually inspect the rubber wheels (rollers) to make sure there were no flat spots on them. I would remove the paper tray and turn the machine over and visually inspect the bottom roller wheels to make sure there were no flat spots on them. I would get some cue tips and drugstore denatured alcohol and clean every roller I could find.
This worked for me for more than five years after i first noticed the problem on a LJ4 that printed over 100 sheets a day for a small business.

Paper tray does not feed at all or may jam several papers


The rubber wheels that feed the paper in can be too soft to grip the paper.
After a long dicussion with the help desk, HP supplied me with a special Paper Feed Cleaning Kit for the 3200 series. This comprises a scraper device that you insert into the paper feeder, and a driver CD. I had to use it three times, Now everything woerk fine.

Good luck!

Ink Jet Printers are notorious for this. Try using household dish detergent( or any thing that contains glycerin [C3H5(OH)3] ) on the rubber wheels. It appears that the glycerin in the dish soap replaces the glycerin in the material frequently called rubber.

Apply the dish soap to all exposed wheels.
Let soak for five to ten minutes.
Wipe the wheels clean. Clean up any spillage too.
Run a few sheets of paper through the printer (until the damp/oily wheel marks disappear from paper).

Printer should work like new when complete.

top feeder for the scanner (on my x6570) had a loose piece of rubber stuck between the feed wheels. The rubber is part of the guiding mechanism that guides the paper to the feed wheels. Remove rubber strip and reattach it where it belongs.

Feeder problem


The same thing has been happening to me. I believe that as the machine gets older, soft plastic parts get hard. Your problem is that the soft rubber part that rotates down and picks up the paper has gotten a bit hard. It won't pick up the paper as well as a new soft part. Just look into the back of the feed tray when you print a page. You'll see a sort 1/2 wheel rotate down and try to pull the paper up. What I did to improve the traction of the plastic was roughen it up with some medium grit (150) sandpaper. You can easily remove the front cover by first opening the cover, pull out the cartridge, press in on the side of the cover where it rotates in the printer's body, slide it out. You'll see the 1/2 wheel clearly now - it has horizontal ridges. Use your sandpaper lightly in the direction of the ridges - horizontal. Then, blow out the dust. Put your front cover back on, put in the cartridge and voila - it'll work. Atleast mine has been working fine. This sort of fix works on rubber contact wheels (in a VCR or cassette deck) for a while, but eventually the hardened part will need to be replaced. But see how it works for you. Best of luck.
