Copier paper feed problems

I have a Minolta EP1081 that is jambing the auto paper feed (from the paper tray in the bottom of unit). It seems to happen about every 6 pages. It will pick up two pages, jamb one half way thru the heated unit, and the other in the center of the unit. It will also rip an extra sheet of paper from the top of the paper stack in the tray. I know it's old, but so am I. Can you help with TS and parts?

Thanks,
Jeff T

Canon pixma mp495 rear tray rollers only pulls paper in on one side then it jams


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

My Konica Minolta bizhub C250 seems prints about every 10th page crinkled and crooked. I can hear it going through the machine and crushing a crease in the paper as it prints. The printed also seems to...


The paper may not be feeding straight out of the paper tray due to poor stacking of the paper in the paper cassette. try another paper tray or check the paper in the paper tray for folded over papers usually near the bottom. Also try feeding paper from the hand feed tray on the left side. This uses a different paper path.

Minolta CS/Pro 1031 Refuse to work and display PC


Check your paper supply in the paper tray. PC means the machine thinks it has no paper or the paper did not feed. If making sure the paper is good and loaded properly does not solve the problem then pull out the tray completely and clean the rubber feed rollers inside of the port where the tray came out off. They should be about half way to the back and over to the right side. Most common cause of this problem is dirty/dusty feed rollers that are not pulling the paper up into the machine. Just wipe them down with glass cleaner of even a cloth dampened with water.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Paper stopping but not really a jam


I am assuming you have checked the paper feeder traying isn't part feeding?

Check the internal unit closest to the toner drum, sorry this is not specific advise for the Minolta fuser unit. You are looking for a lever that slides out revealing the paper it has collected from internal jams - Usually the lever is to the side just above or below the toner unit.

If this doesn't work check the paper loading tray(s)

PAPER FEED DOESNT WORK KONICA MINOLTA COLOR PRINTER


This happened to me one time after I pulled out a jammed paper the wrong way. I pulled it from the paper tray. Heard the sounds, it tried to grab the paper, but couldn't. It happened a long time ago, so I'm fuzzy on which part I tinkered with...but I recall that because I pulled the paper (backwards) from the tray, it flipped a lever/feeder/roller/thing and that 's why it wasn't grabbing the paper. If you look in the paper tray as the rollers go down to grab the paper, you'll see what's not working......sorry, lame solution.

Error Code C0960


That error code usually indicates a problem with the bottom paper tray. Make sure the paper is loaded properly and that all the paper is aligned properly. Take all the paper out of the tray and reload it.

Paper feed issues


The problem is what you already stated, the rollers are too smooth so they are not grabbing the paper to feed it.

Try this : clean with alcohol and a clean cloth very well and make a copy it will probably make one or two then jam.

order the tires and replace. should cost you about $20

Can't print onto thick card


Have you tried specifying the paper type and weight INSTEAD of the tray. Set the tray properties first, then print. If you leave it on auto tray it will use the tray that matches your paper type and weight.
