EP4000 Back to back copying paper jams

When we try to copy a back to back original (2 - 2) the paper jams in the bottom tray after the second or third copy, and the paper gets torn in a corner.

Any adjustment I can do to correct this problem? Not much info in the book.

Tks

    The copies go to the duplexor tray automatically, there is no manual intervention, so how do we tell the machine to slow down to let the ink dry?



    Tks for any help.

THE INK MAY NOT BE TOTAL DRY WHEN MAKING BACK TO BACK COPIES, SOMETIME YOU NEED TO LET THE PAPER TONER DRY, LET THE PAPER COOL OFF BEFORE PUTING IT THREW THE MACHINE AGAIN, AND I KNOW ITS A PAIN IN THE BACK SIDE.

TRY IT

How to Fix a Paper Jam in a Copy Machine


It seems inevitable that the copy machine will have a paper jam. You need the copies immediately, so how do you fix the jam? Luckily, ingenuity and a manual, can help you fix the problem yourself. Fixing a paper jam, can elevate you to hero status amongst your co-workers.

  1. Discover the location of the jam. Carefully open the cover of the copy machine and the paper tray to see exactly where the paper is jammed.
  2. Step 2 Turn off the copy machine before pulling out the paper.
  3. Step 3 Pull the page out, the opposite way it is fed into the copier. Pull the jammed sheet out gently. If you tug too hard, the paper may rip.
  4. Step 4 Check for any paper fragments and clean up any torn pieces.
  5. Step 5 Check the roller where the jam occurred to be sure none of the copier parts are loose or broken. The roller should be smooth all the way across with no possible snags.
  6. Step 6 Replace the cover and paper tray and turn the machine back on.
  7. Step 7 Press the button to cancel the paper jam message. This button will vary among copy machines. The display will tell you which button to push.

My minolta ep4000 giving black shad on one side of the paper


Usually caused by either dirty optics or a bad drum cleaning blade. If you lighten the exposure control to make the copy lighter, does the background go away? If so the the optics need to be cleaned. You just have to remove the large original glass by removing the 2 screws at the front and back side of the plastic guide that is at the left edge of the glass. Be careful not to lose the springs that are under the guide. Lift out the glass. With the POWER OFF on the copier just pull out the scanner bar that moves back and forth. There is one mirror on the first piece that slides out and 2 mirrors on the second part. Once cleaned just re-install everything and test.

You can do a test for the drum cleaning blade by running 10 copies of something. If the shaded area of the copy gets worse so that the last copy out is worse than the first copy out it is most likely the drum cleaning blade. Drum cleaning blades are like $30.00
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

How to use


Does the copier have a duplexer? Automatic 2-sided copying (duplexing) was an optional feature for the EP2030. If there is a drawer in the lower section of the copier labeled "duplex" then your unit has this feature.

To use it, simply select 1>2 (for single-sided originals) or 2>2 (for 2-sided originals) on the "Orig>Copy" section of the control panel (toward the left side).

If your copier is not equipped with a duplexer, the only way you can make 2-sided copies is to copy the first side and then load the copies back into the paper tray or the manual bypass on the right side of the unit.

Note the the copier copies on the bottom side of paper fed from the paper trays, and the top side of paper fed from the manual bypass.

You can download a .pdf file of an operator's manual for this copier from the Konica Minolta website.

Ricoh Aficio 1035 ARDF is not duplexing, why?


Call a technician, seems like the original is not making the second scan pass and thus displaying a mis-feed, cut also be a small piece of paper in the feeder bloacking a sensor, bad sensor or worn feed tires. www.mfpsolutions.blogpsot.com

Help needed on ricoh ft 4015 copier


1-you need to determine if the two are part of the same problem

If the jamming occured first with no signs of copy quality issues then, it depends on where it's jamming. Locate the 1st jammed paper, the one that is furthest towards the exit. this stops all other paper after it. for example if there are papers in the fuser -by the drum and coming out if the tray the problem is most likely in the fuser area. Are the papers being crumbled? or just stop at that location?

2-the half dark copies could be a couple of things
a) the seperation unit is going bad and making the copies rise up against the drum
b)does the lamp that come on to scan the original stay on the whole lenght of the paper or does it turn off half way down the page? if yes the cable that connects to the lamp is probably broken and not making contact at the half way point as it is scanning.

Printer says "Remove paper jam"


check that the paper tray is set to match the paper your printing - look also in the printer driver settings for the correct size. A4, Letter etc.. If that did not fix it make sure the paper take-up roller isnt worn.

Printer malfunction


The samsung printer have three paper jam sensors. First (paper jam 0) after the feed rollers. Second (paper jam 1) at the left of the feed rollers and third (paper jam 2) at the fuser unit where it is hot. You can see the actuator between the two white rollers. Paper jam 2 is mainly cause by the scrappers out of position on the side of the upper heat rollers.You will have to clean it and put it back into position.

NP 6030 paper jam


It may be this simple:

1- as silly as it may seem, are you sure the size  is correct, if it is a letter size paper and it says legal, it will jam. open the paper tray and make sure the guides are snug againgst the paper,

does it say letter (or legal) for the tray you are going to use, if they do not correspond then look behind the tray inside the machine, is there a paper jammed in the back?

 

Or not so easy

2-You are having a sensor problem, take a look at the duplex tray,

pull it out and look at the sensors ( black little levers that stick out) are there any pieces of paper, can you move them and they spring back into place?
