1. Try cleaning the paper feed rollers Instructions how to clean the paper feed rollers. If the paper feed rollers become dirty, they may not be able to properly feed paper due to the feed roller's slippage. If paper does not feed correctly, perform the following to clean the paper feed rollers:
Open the Printers folder.
- For Windows XP Home Edition : Click/Select 'Start,' 'Control Panel,' 'Printers and Other Hardware,' and 'Printers and Faxes.
- For Windows XP Professional Edition : Click 'Start' and 'Printers and Faxes.'
- For Windows Vista : Click 'Start,' 'Control Panel,' 'Hardware and Sound,' and 'Printers.'
- For Windows 2000 : Click/Select 'Start,' and 'Settings,' then 'Printers.'
Right-click the icon of the printer for paper feed roller cleaning, and select 'Properties' from the displayed list.
Click the 'Maintenance' tab and click 'Roller Cleaning'.
Remove all sheets of paper from the rear tray, then click 'OK'.
Confirm the message, and click 'OK'. Note: Clicking 'OK' will activate the paper feed rollers 30 times. This activation will take about 90 seconds. Do not perform other operations until this operation has finished.
Confirm the message, and click 'OK'.
After the continuous paper feeding operations in step 5 have finished, load three sheets of plain paper and click 'OK'.
Confirm the message, and click 'OK'.
Note: “Feed roller cleaning is completed” message is displayed when the paper is fed and ejected.
Yes,but the most imported part for dubble feeding is the sepatation pad,this white pad is on the lower part of the docfeeder and work with the feed rollers,fist make sure that pad is clean before you replace the rollers,and then replace the pad.
Ther is a separation pad that developes a divot caused by the feed roller. Simple fix. order a new separation pad. It's located under the top cover. Just move slowly and identify the latches that hold the cover down. Don't force anything.
Another possibilty. If a document was forcably pull out of the document area the "White paper bar above the scanner glass might have been jerked out of it's normal position causing a blockage in the path. Investigate this possibility before ordering parts.
either dubree on the rollers or on the corona wires, wires clean with acalohol and q-tip, very carefully or you will brake the fire, look where the line is at and open the machine and locate where the issue is and remove and clean this area very carefully.

canon pc981 l170 a mark down the middle of paper
if you look at the top piece of paper in the cassette is there a smug mark or wrinkle in the paper. you my just need to clean the feed roller. ( black or gray roller ) . I'm not sher on this model if it is a rear paper feed or a cassette from under if it is a back feed one look in side the paper shoot of any fournobject is in there. Hope for the best.
By cleaning the feed rollers you the fax will feed beter.Remove the dockfeeder and the paper tray.you will find the feed rollers in the bottom of the paper tray.Take a cloth and a stong soap selution and clean the 2 feed rubbers.
If you make a copy, does the copy have dark areas down the middle of the page? If so, remove the toner cartridge and gently roll it around to redistribute the toner inside, maybe even replace the toner cartridge if you've had it a long while. If you still see unevenness, you may need to have the machine looked at.
If the copies you make on your machine look fine, then I would suspect that the person sending you the fax has a dirty scanning element. Check with them to see if they can clean the scanning element and it should improve the fax quality.
Replacing the roller can be prety extensive work. Try to check and make that the pick-up roller on the bottom is flat across sometimes it can get turns backwards and it has a round side that will not grasp the paper. If this is ture just take your finger and push the roller forwards. You can alo take a clean wipe and wipe off all of the rollers the rollers are made to be a little tacky when they start to get a little older dust can build up on them causing them not to grab the paper
Like a worn running shoes, the paper feed roller of the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) have lost it's traction and has to be replaced or cleaned. Paper just slids and doesn't picked up properly without that little push. Professional servicers use a cleaner specifically designed for rubber rollers. However, YOU CAN get extra miles on it by dabbing a Q-tip in warm water and cleaning the paper feed roller on the ADF. Like all eletrical devices, the unit has to be turned off and unplugged before working on it. Take all precationary measures and goodluck.
