Errors with my Printer/scaner


Jessica:

This could be one of a few things... First, Windows 8 is a completely different animal from Windows XP! Try reloading your printer driver in Windows 8. If this doesn\'t work, you need to clean the paper pickup rollers at the front of the printer (where the paper first feeds into the machine. I use a Q-tip moistened (not sopping wet) with rubbing alcohol... gently scrub the whole pickup roller and then the feed roller next to it. Check carefully (with a flashlight) for any shards of paper that might be blocking the paper path. There is also a sensor flag (small finger of plastic) sticking up that the paper must hit to let the printer know that the paper is feeding through. If you do not see the sensor flag, it is either jammed or has been broken off when a piece of paper was pulled backward out of the paper feed area. First reload the printer driver, and try to print. If it doesn\'t print, check and clean the rollers and look for the sensor flag.

Cannon laser fax 1060 P "check paper size"


Hi Margaret
Ok,the problem normaly with this model is in the feeding of the paper.For some or other reason the paper is moving to slow threw the machine and then the machine detect it as a longer size paper.

  • Clean the rollers that pick the paper up and clean also the sepatation rubbers under neath the paper pick up rollers.This rubbers is called the separation pads.
  • To clean this rollers,remove the cartridge and you will see the feed roller at the back.
I think what happened with the move the machine might collected dust and now the rollers are slipping.

Thanks for you support

The thermal transfer paper tore during process how do I fix it? I removed the cartridge but now the fax paper just sit in tray while the rollers rolls.


Cartridge? There is no print cartridge in a thermal fax. Maybe you removed the thermal print head. Put it back! You simply need to "thread" the fax paper back through the slot that leads to the cutter mechanism. When you close the lid the rollers will pick up the paper and cut off a fresh strip. Locate the long slot for the paper.

I have a Brother Intellifax 4100 Fax machine. I may have pulled the paper cathrudge out to abruptly because a 3/4 spring was dislodged from somewhere - I have not identified where it belongs. As a...


best guess is it belongs under the paper lift plate in your paper tray, remove the paper tray and all the paper, there should be a metal paper lift plate in the paper tray, these are typically spring loaded to lift the paper into place. lift the plate and check the underside for the location of the spring, there is usually a retainer of some sort to hold the spring in place. once the spring is in place the tray should feed correctly.

Hope this is of some help.

Fax machine says Rec. Paper Jam


Check the paper, is it loaded correctly? Have you fanned the paper to break the production bond? Is the paper a good quality? Remove all of the paper and check inside for any foreign objects.(paper clips, staples) Reinstall paper. Mark the top sheet of paper with an x, press the copy button, does it even try to pull in the paper?
If yes, the pick up rollers are likely dirty, and need to be cleaned, remove the paper and clean the rollers with some isopropal alcohol, and a soft cloth. (available at a drug store) Retry
If it doesn't try at all, then turn machine off and unplug it for a few minutes,re connect, power up. Any change? if not machine has a feed problem that may require a Tech to look at.

Hope this is of some help.

Auto feed of outgoing fax document.


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

Loading paper in fax machine


Relax ti mal- the rollers are not picking up the paper because they are dirty or worn out.

Try this clean the rollers with alcohol and try, are the rollers smooth or do they have a rough feel? if smooth replace and it should be good as new.

Good luck

Jammed paper message


There are two reasons for receiving sheets not being  picked up either the  rollers are dirty or the cleaning assembly is bad  which is under the print carriage (either the sensor needs cleaning/servicing )

Happy faxing

Auto feeds crooked


Are we talking about a paper feed problem from the paper cassette tray or the Auto Document feeder on the top. Either way, check the the paper width guides, or if it is the paper cassette tray, remove it and check the paper pick up roller locking clips.
