You can override this problem in many instances by manually selecting a cassette and pressing the start button. 
The original you are using may be an odd size or it is a book which is not being detected correctly

Printer alarms us when a print job has been snet but wont print unless we manualy push the paper size on the printer


You have a mismatch paper size. Document is not same as paper you have in copier. Try printing 8 1/2 by 11 document if doesn't print check printer preferences and adjust settings. Check copier paper trays make sure don't have special settings on them

Paper keeps jamming


I would look to see if the paper tray's Dials are set to the correct paper size as the paper in the paper tray.. LTR size set to LTR or LTR-R set to LTR-R if the dial is set to the wrong size the copier will jam all the time. Due to a timing issue, the copier thinks it has one size, but actually is try to make a copy on different size... Good Luck

I am feeding a portrait fax letter size and it is being received partially - one half is cut off. please explain


It sounds as if the document feeder is not recognizing the proper size of paper. Try making a copy, is the copy correct or is the copier indicating to load a certain size of paper. The paper width guides as well as the raised tabs on the document feeder tell the copier the proper paper size. Could the problem be on the other end? I know I have several customers that have the paper size dials or indicators incorrect for the paper in their cassettes. This would be if only a single reciever of your fax is complaining. You may want to see if rotating the fax in the LTR-R direction works.

Full page is not copied


Hi, did you place paper in tray also horizontal? the paper in tray and on glass must be horizontal if you want to copy A4R size.

DO NOT forget to adjust the blue paper size indicator on paper tray to A4R also.

Also under user mode, under copy sett. you can find option for auto rotate, so copier will adjust size automaticaly.

Copier jamming/copy printing sideways


If it jams every copy then it sounds like the paper tray size is not programmed properly. This is also why the print is the wrong direction on the page. So the copier thinks it has 8.5X11 loaded like this > -- and instead it is loaded like this > |
I hope that makes sense. So this not only causes the print to be the wrong direction but since the paper dimension are different that what the machine expects then it throws the sensor timing off and results in a paper jam. So just open your paper trays and check the paper size dials in the trays to make sure they match the paper size AND direction of the paper loaded into that tray.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

It will print OK but the paper feed stops when using it as a copier


Make sure the paper size selected for when you copy is the same as you normally use. For example. If its set to A4 and you usually use something smaller it will recognise the size and it wont print.

Can't get the copier to scan only 8.5*11 area on glass


Set your original settings to the actual size.
You are using the auto recognition feature which is over-ridden when you specify the size manually.
It will try to match it to the nearest size it "knows". That is why the stamp is detecting so large.

Copy orientation


Basicly, the check is smaller then a standard LTR size paper. The copier will only see it as a standard size. You will have to put a standard size peice of paper behind that check on the glass so it will read a standard size of paper.... The copier will not know that you are coping a check... They are not that smart..... Good Luck
