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.

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.

Try two things:

Fan the paper before placing in the tray.

Raise the humidity in the room to at least 40% to avoid electrostatic sticking of the paper. Store paper in 40% humidity area.

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.

The Paper light keeps flashing when theres paper in the printer


A few things could be happening here.

1. Clear the print queue, and if there are jobs that won't delete, reboot the computer.
2. Now clear the jobs on the printer (cancel job button) until the status light turns green.
3. Put a piece of paper in the manual feed tray on the front.
4. Print a test page.
If the test page prints to the paper in the manual feed tray, then it is set as the default tray. Go into the printer settings and change it to "auto" or tray 1. If the test page prints to tray 1, but the original document you tried to print (when it got stuck) still won't print, cancel the job. Now, again, put paper in the manual feed tray. Try to print the document again and if it pulls from there, go into page setup of your document and change the setting from "manual" to "auto" or tray 1. Clear the job again (if it's stuck) and you should be able to print again. Hope this helps. This is one of the most common solutions - it happens a lot, especially with documents that are emailed from other people and once they get stuck in the queue, nothing will print (except the test pages directly from the printer, like you describe).
