SOURCE: My MP510 grabs way to many sheets of paper.

hi i am a Canon certified repair tech for this printer. it seems that your problem is due to a broken sheet feeder unit. what i ahve seem with some new machines is that a plastic shaft that controls ther seperation of the pages breaks. most of these problems occurs with new machine because they are shipped from place to place. if the unit is under a year old it is still under warrenty and can be brought to or shipped to a repair center. even if its not under warrenty any longer you should still call Canon at 1-800-OK-CANON and complain that it has been doing it since you bought it and they will locate the nearest repair center to your location for you. hope this helps.

SOURCE: not grabbing paper

Try cleaning the rollers again and fan the paper. When you clean the rollers, use alcohol and a lint free cloth. Don't put too many sheets in the feed tray.

LOADED PAPER I ...GOES CROOKED


When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper.The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

check the printer's printing preferences on properties option.should be set to normal then check the printer rollers if its dirty where the papers pass thru, if the problem persists load only 1 paper every time you print for the printer not to grab more papers.i think it is in the feeder and the sensor maybe its dirty need to be cleaned up.

The rollers won't grab the paper. It may grab toward the end of the print job so that the second half gets printed on the top half of the paper. Or it just won't grab at all.


Dear User,

Your Printer rollers seems to go plane, and they are unable to grab paper properly. You should clean them with a clean piece of paper.
And you can also rub silghtly them with an ambry paper, if needed so that it may grip the paper properly.

Thanks

I cant get the machine to grab the paper and it says its out of paper, yet its not out of paper.


Hi, the Ip3000 has 3 different feeding trays...
make sure that the printer is trying to "grab" the paper in the tray that you have chosen to use in the printer properties box...
when you give the print command can you see the rubber roller moving to grab the paper in the top feeder tray???
if the roller that feeds the printer is not moving you may have accidentally changed the settings to grab paper from the bottom tray...the one right under the door that opens to let printed pages out of the printer...
the 3rd feeder tray is the DVD/CD printing tray...
I suggest that you look at the printer Properties for remedial action...
hope this helps you with your problem...
cheers
haitchhcee
p.s.
suggest you place paper in the bottom tray before making adjustments to see if it is trying to grab the paper from there...

Paper jam in Panasonic KX-


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.

Information on how to use rear feed


1. Prepare your doc/file for printing.
2. Insert card stock with narrow side of stock in slot in back of printer until it hits rollers and stops. Don't force in any card stock thicker than max. rated.
3. Change printer setup to feed from rear.
4. Print.

Depending on what software you print from, you may need to change this each time you print if you intend to keep printing from that "tray."

DOCUMENT FEEDER


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Dell 1720dn takes extra blank page at end of job and jams


There are rubber rollers that grab the paper to pull it through typically these get slick over time and will cause the printer to grab an extra sheet of paper. How I usually fix this problem is to check and see if the rollers are slick if so then I take an Emory board to them to rough them up just a little bit. I have also in the past used clear finger nail polish on the roller and that has helped. I would apply a bit of the clear polish to the roller, if it did not work then I would take the Emory board to it.
