I have been using the Xerox XD100 as a copy machine. It stopped working today. Several lights are on (Auto/100%/Paper Tray light on WorkCentre Diagram/On-line). Examined paper tray. No problem. Tried changing toner cartridge. No help. Pressing On-line button or Image Quality (Reset) does not help. Tried with and without RS232 cable conneted: No difference. (There is no computer attached to the other end of the cable--hasn't been for years.)

Re: Xerox XD100 does not work
Sounds like this machine is locked up.
Are the quanity selecton lights on?
Is the fan on at the back.
Did the machine warm up ok and at a ready state?
We cannot see the machine, so we need to have more information as to what else is operating.

So it sounds like the machine is not feeding paper from the paper cassette. This is a common problem.
There are 2 possibilities. 1 easy and one a little tougher. The simple fix is cleaning the paper feed tires. Just pull out the paper cassette, then remove all the paper. You will see 2 felt type pads on the spring loaded metal plate. Spray these 2 pads with some glass cleaner. Dry the metal plate a little then lock the plate down and re-install the cassette without paper! Make sure the lower tray is selected for paper feeding and press the print button. The machine should try to feed a few times then shut down with a P in the display. Reset the P using the clear key then press print again. Repeat this procedure 5 or 6 times. Then remove the tray, dry the pads a bit then re-load the paper, re-install the tray and give it a try. If dirty feed rollers were the cause then this procedure will fix it. Let me know how this works out.
Thank You for using Fixya
The fuser is the problem. Most likely the fuser will need to be rebuilt or replaced. Google a business called The Parts Drop. they have either the parts or the unit.
You may just have to take the fuser out and remove a badly jammed piece of paper in that module. Shut the machine off for a half an hour. Remove the back cover. You will then see on the left side a black plastic bracket with 3 plugs on it. Disconnect those 3 plugs. Then open the right side door and toward the top is the fuser. It has yellow caution HOT labels on it. There are 2 silver phillips screws holding it in. Remove the screws and then remove the fuser unit and see if there is a paper in there. There are 2 screws that you can remove and the fuser will kind of fold open to inspect for bent fingers or one out of place.
there is either paper stuck around a roller (3) that feeds the paper or you have a bad clutch, most mnfs use magnetic clutches at the rear of the machine or bypass that get a red rusty dust in them causing squeal. recommend xerox takes a look...sorry they are quite expensive hourly
PAPER JAM PROBLEM The Main PWB sensed that a paper jam exists within the paper path. E2 Status Code (Without SDF) RAP The Main PWB sensed a tray misfeed or a paper jam in the paper path. Initial Actions • Switch off the power and clear any document jam. • Check for any obstructions in the paper path. Procedure Switch on the power. Enter diagnostic code 30-1. Open then close the Fuser Gate to actuate and deactuate the Fuser Jam Sensor Q3 while observing the Paper Jam lamp. The Paper Jam lamp comes on and goes off. Y N Go toFlag 2 and check the wires for an open or short circuit. Manually actuate and deactuate the Paper Feed Sensor Q1 while observing the Toner Cartridge lamp. The Toner Cartridge lamp comes on and goes off. Y N Go to Flag 1 and check for an open circuit. Place a piece of paper above the Fuser Gate and use the Manual Exit Knob move the paper across the Exit Sensor Q4 while observing the Drum Cartridge Lamp. The Drum Cartridge lamp turns on and off. Y N Go to Flag 3 and check for an open wire. Manually actuate and deactuate Bypass Feed Sensor Q2 while observing the Auto exposure lamp. The Auto exposure LED comes on and goes off. Y N Go to Flag 4 and check for an open circuit. Press the Clear button. Enter diagnostic code 6-2. Press the Start button. The Registration Roll Solenoid can be heard switching on and switching off. Y N Press the Clear button. There is +24 VDC measured between CN103-1 and GND. Y N Replace the Main PWB PL 7.1. Go to Flag 5 and check the wires for an open circuit. If the wires are good, replace the Registration Roll Solenoid SOL3. Press the Stop button. Paper jams in the fuser. Y N Check the following: • Ensure that the paper tray guide is set to the correct width of the copy paper. • Inspect the paper path from this tray and the paper registration area for an obstruction such as a burr. • Inspect the Registration Roll, PL 5.1 and the Pinch Roll, PL 1.4 for contamination and wear. Clean (with Film Remover only) or replace as required.
The feedrollers are most likely worn out. Maybe not smoothe but just tacky.
You can try removing the paper tray. Then take some cleaner, alcohol or some liquid soapy cleaner, fantstic, or soemting like that, and clean the rubber rollers. Clean them 2 or 3 times with a cloth dampned with the cleaner.
since the jams are in the tray, I am sure those rollers are either dirty or smoothe.
If you need more info let me know and I will send you my E-mail address so you can order and replace them on your own if you don't have a maintenance agreement with someone.
