This may occur if:
-the paper is too thick or too thin
-the roller mechanism is not properly aligned or has worn out
-the sheets of paper stick together

things you can try:
-unload the paper in the main tray and bend the stack of paper to loosen it up. Reload the paper to the main tray

Hope this helps!

I get plain paper or double when I received fax from my uf5300 laser fax.it print one page from 5 pages that sent and I got empty pages and double somtimes


Paper feed rollers and sheet feed pad dirty. Feed roller on top pad should be just below. Clean with alcohol. Papers have clay in them. Recycled is worst. It will glaze the pick up roller and pad.

My brother intellifax 4100e is feeding double my document


theres a flat rubber seperator it has a springy metal backing on it, on the part that opens up on the feeder that is probably worn out.
Best way is to replace it ...its a cheap part. you can clean it real good with alchohol, and it may work better for a while but the part should be replaced.it applies pressure to the roller and seperated the second sheet from feeding

Fax feeder is pulling sheets through at the same time


Sounds like the separation pads in the paper tray are worn out. You can contact Brother and purchase the parts from them. It should be less than $10. as long as the paper is being pulled from the tray it sounds like the rollers are okay.

Paper jam in Panasonic KX-


Your document feed is separate from your received and report prints so that's why your reports are printing ok and the document feeder jams. When you open up the doc feeder and look inside the machine you will see a roller and above it on the cover that opens you will see a rubber pad. Clean both the roller and pad (in fact anything in there that is rubber) with a rubber cleaner, alcohol, or even soap and water on a cloth without it been dripping wet. You will probablt find that they are very dirty. The roller feeds the document in so that needs to be clean and the pad helps to keep all the other docs from feeding in at the same time and that should be very clean so it produces good friction.

How do I stop Fax from feeding more than one copy of typed sheets through the machine at onc time?


If you take some alcohol, and put a couple of drops in the center if a piece of paper, then pass it through the feeder a couple of times, this should clean the feed and separate tires, do this a couple of times, then try passing a couple of sheets to see if the problem has been eliminated.

Hope this helps.

When you load the document feeder, simply place all of the sheets, up to I believe 25 sheets at a time in the document feeder. The doc feeder, if working correctly will load them one at a time and then exit them to the receiving shelf or tray on your printer.

If you do not have a document feeder, or must use the manual scan function for some reason, there is also a FAX multiple pages function from the sub menu.
