Paper catch rollers out of alignment

Paper picks up but won't go on through the rollers - seems to be out of alignment. Tried to remove rear cover (3 screws) but it will not come off.
Bottom of paper edge just creases up and stops.All other components seem to be working fine. Have removed cartridges, unpowered machine, and tried moving a folded envelope through the rollers left to right - no joy.

Attempt to make a copy is stopped when "paper jam" error message comes on. The rear door opens to reveal the copy accordioned against the drum area, With every try this happens. Can it be...


It sounds like the rollers are not feeding the paper properly. It's likely supposed to go up and around to be printed on, but the upper rollers are not catching the paper properly and instead of feeding through like it's supposed to, it's crunching up against the drum.

The rollers in a laser printer can sometimes get dirty and won't pick up the paper properly. My recommendation would be the following:

1) Remove the paper from the printer.

2) Open the back cover.

3) Take a damp, lint-free cloth (add a couple drops of vinegar to it for extra cleaning power) and hold it lightly against the rubber rollers inside the back of the printer.

4) Tell the printer to make a copy so that the rollers will try to move to pull the paper through.

The rollers should essentially clean themselves against the cloth as they try to move to prime themselves. You might have to repeat the copy request a couple of times in order to get them completely clean.

If this solution doesn't work, you could try taking it into a repair shop, but it's likely that repairing a printer is going to cost more than simply buying a new one, unfortunately.

Hope this is helpful!

Samsung CLP-300 paper does not seem to be catching when printing?


Hi. Kelly,
I think the issue is the due to paper pick-up roller. When the rollers get dirty or worn-out, the printer fails to pick the paper, which results in paper jam etc.. So, remove the paper tray and toner cartridge and locate the paper pick up roller in the middle. Clean it with damp (with luke-warm water) and lint-free cloth. I hope this would fix the issue. If the Roller is damaged or worn out, it needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Paper is repeatedly jamming in rear to point of not working or coming out extremely "wavy". Have wiped down pick up rollers. Suggestions?


This seems to be fault in the transport of the paper in the rollers. So if you have used any adhesive sticker printing, it is possible that some glue has got clogged into the rollers. If not there can be some jammed paper in the rollers or the mechanism.
So start this work only if you are mechanically able with the right tools.
Remove the covers to get access to the mechanism . Remove the motor drive assembly , the fitting of the motor to the mechanism. Once this is removed the rollers can be turned manually so that you will be able to feed a paper to see the progress of the movement while studying if there is any obstruction or damage to the paper.
There is a in-detect sensor, usually an opto-coupler , make sure this is not clogged or dirty as this IR detection feeds the signal to the processor for starting the motor drive feed.
Reassemble but make sure the rollers are aligned to be in equal gap to feed the paper without a side pull. Now you must print and see if the fault has changed. If not repeat the above work to confirm the area of obstruction.

HP Officejet Pro LP 7880 feeder does not work, how to fix it?


Step one: Check the paper in the ADF The condition of the paper or the amount of paper loaded in the ADF might prevent the ADF from picking it up and feeding it through the product.
  1. Make sure that no more than 50 sheets of paper are in the ADF input tray.
  2. Make sure the original is not photo paper or carbon paper. These types of originals must be loaded on the scanner glass.
  3. Make sure the original document that is loaded in the ADF meets the following criteria:
    • Free from curls, folds, creases, and tears
    • Does not have staples or clips attached
Step two: Make sure the ADF pick assembly is in good working condition
  1. Remove the document feeder and open the ADF cover.
  2. While lifting the blue-green lever, carefully rotate the pick assembly toward the open ADF cover until it stops.
  3. Examine the pick assembly.
    • Make sure the bottom roller is held firmly in place by the two-catch, which is located to the left and the right of the roller.
    • Make sure the stack stopper, which is located between the top and bottom rollers, fits within the double slots just above the bottom roller. The stack stopper should move freely within the double slots to flow up and down when the whole pick assembly is lifted and lowered into position.
  4. Return the pick assembly to its original position.
  5. When the product is turned on, the top roller will reset to its original position above the separator pad. There will be a gap between the separator pad and the top roller.
  6. If there is no gap between the ADF top roller and the separator pad, press the Power button to turn off the product.
  7. Wait three to five seconds and then press the Power button to turn the product on. The ADF rollers should reset to the correct positions.
  8. Close the ADF cover and replace the document feeder.
Step three: Clean the rollers and separator pad
  1. Remove the document feeder and open the ADF cover.
  2. While lifting the blue-green lever, carefully rotate the pick assembly toward the open ADF cover until it stops.
  3. Lightly dampen a clean, lint-free cloth with distilled water, and then squeeze any excess liquid from it.
  4. Use the damp cloth to wipe any residue off the rollers and the separator pad. If the residue does not come off using distilled water, use isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol on the cloth instead.
  5. Return the pick assembly to its original position.
  6. Close the ADF cover and replace the document feeder.
Step four: Detaching and re-attaching the ADF pick roller assembly If the ADF pick assembly is detached or not connected properly, follow the steps below to resolve the issue. If the ADF pick assembly works well, do not perform these steps.
  1. Press the Power button to turn off the All-in-One.
  2. Remove the document feeder and open the ADF cover.
  3. Press the blue-green ADF-release button to release the ADF rollers from the pick assembly as shown in the figure below (the red arrow is pointing to the ADF release button).
  4. Re-attach the ADF pick rollers by placing the rollers into the roller slot of the ADF pick assembly as shown in the figure below. The red arrows show the gears on the ADF pick assembly aligned on one side. The yellow arrows point to the two-catch notch.
  5. Once the rollers are placed on the two-catch notch, push them in, so that the two-catch clicks into place. The photo below shows a correctly installed ADF pick assembly.
  6. Close the ADF assembly and cover.
  7. Turn the product on and make a copy with the ADF to check that the pick assembly works.

Brother Laserjet 8860dn printer not picking up/feeding paper


The paper is not feeding from the paper tray. The loud click is alarming, but not the problem. Check the adjustments in the paper tray. The left and right guides should be snug, but the rear guide should give between a 1/16 inch and a 1/8 inch of free play.

To check, press the purple lever at the right front of the tray. The leading edge of the stack of paper in th etray should rise out of the tray so that the top piece of paper can be fed into the drum assembly. If the stack does not rise evenly, or will not rise, the rear adjustment is the problem.

You can inspect the springs in the paper tray by removing the plastic cover that is above the white translucent roller in the tray. To do this turn over the tray and release the catches with a little screwdriver. I do not think there is a missing spring. While you have the cover off clean the lnt from behind the roller.

241.10 paper jam


Um I don't know what the other guy is saying since your paper jam has nothing to do with where he is telling to look...

From the service manual:

Error 241 subcode 10:
Page was not properly picked from tray 1.

Possible Causes:
Failure to feed possible causes include:
• Edge locking
• Worn or contaminated pick tires
• Overfilling of tray past the fill line.

Action:

Fan media.
Turn media over.
Reduce amount of media loaded in tray 1.
Replace pick tires.*

To replace pick tires:

Integrated tray autocompensator pick roll assembly removal

1. Remove the integrated tray, and look underneath the printer for the autocompensator arm. Pull the arm
down.

Installation
1. Remove the new pick rolls from their packaging.
2. Pull the autocompensator arm down. Locate the recessed area on the pick roll, and align it with the tab on the arm. There are two arrows on each pick roll. Make sure the bottom arrow faces you as you align the recessed area with the tab.

Paper won't load up....


Disconnect the printer from power source and computer. Remove the rear access panel and very carefully use a alcohol moistened cotton swab to clean the all the black rubber pick-up rollers. Use a gentle sideways stroke while cleaning and turn rollers to clean all sides. Allow the rollers to dry and replace the rear cover and power up. Worked wonders for me. HP has certain 3210 printers that have this problem.
