the service manual says to replace the main pcb before you do this try to upgrade firmware even if it is current or try a different ADF the DIMM could be the problem if the board has 1 try cleaning the contacts with an eraser welcome to Kyocera repair
Make sure the ink is dry and the paper is cold before replacing as this can weaken the paper strength and cause it to fold. Also a lot of printers are very picky about paper alignment and don't like you just putting in single sheets. Try having at least 6 sheets in the slot and 'tapping' them on a flat surface to align the bottom surface before feeding them in.
It sounds like the feed tire is dirty, OR the feed clutch has sprung. Remove the paper tray On the right side of the copier where you feed the single sheet, you pull down the door. This exposes a fat gray or black feed roller. Take a clean dry towel and dampen it with wd 40. Gently wipe the roller with the cloth turning the roller toward the paper exit direction. Let the WD 40 soak in for ten minutes, replace the paper tray and try to make a copy. If it does, you need a feed roller which will rquire a service cal/take it in. If still no feed the 'clicking' may be a sprung clutch, service call required.

YOur problem is likely worn feed rubber. It is an old machine. Has it ever been serviced?
Did this happen after a paper jam?
Try this: UNPLUG the copier Take out the paper tray. Prepare a dry cloth that is dampened with WD 40. Open the door on the right side of the coper. You should see 1 large, gray or black rubber roller. Gently wipe the roller with the WD 40 cloth, slowly turning the roller. It only turns 1 way, towards the exit direction of the paper from the copier.
Let the WD 40 soak in, about 10 minutes. Put the paper tray back in, plug the copier back in and try to make a copy. If it makes a copy, the feed roller needs replaced, If it doesn't make a copy, check the top sheet of paper in the tray. If you see skid marks, you definitely need a feed roller. No, they are not easy to change.
As long as the roller feeds, go for it. When it starts slipping then you'll have to do something about that feed roller.
Only copiers fitted with a duplexing unit will automatically make a double sided copy. I assume yours does not have this accessory. You can always make two sided copies manually. You need to first work out the paper path, so mark one piece of paper with an arrow showing the top and the direction the sheet was placed on top of the paper feed tray. Make a copy and you will now know whether the top or bottom of the paper as loaded gets printed on. Now place that sheet back in the paper feed tray again with the arrow face down in the paper tray, but still pointing in the same direction as before. Print side two and you will now have a double sided copy. If the reverse of the copy is facing the wrong way then you know that the paper needs to go into teh paper tray with the arrow facing you. Hope this makes sense, but it just needs a couple of trial runs to get to understand which was round to put the paper back in for the revers side to be printed. Always keep the final successful double sided copy, marked up for future reference, as it is so easy to forget which way to put the paper back in several weeks later.
Unless you are using a duplex "Multifunctional" copier(with fax.) most plain fax. machines are not duplex and will only print on one side of the page.
If you have a machine capable of rx duplex printing please specify make and model for additional help.
Assuming you have it hooked up to a phone line that is capable of dialing the number you want to fax to, you put your paper in the top tray, dial the number and hit send. The machine will pull through the paper and deposit it under that top tray. You will want to make a copy first so you know you are putting in the paper facing the right direction (it should be face up.) Put a single sheet face up in the top tray and hit copy. If what comes out of the bottom-most tray underneath is an exact copy of your original, then you're fine, if it's blank, then flip the orginal over and try again.
More than likely the feed rolls and seperator roller need to be replaced.
You They are not difficult to replace or expensive.
If you want googoe a busness called " the parts drop". call and talk to Britt, I dont work ther but do business with them. Honest and fair. And no I don't know how I switched to Italics LOL. So trust me LOL.. Honestly, those feedrolls get smoothe after some time and even with cleaning become unreliable.
