Question about Xerox WorkCentre M20 Black and White Copier

3 Answers

I have a WorkCenter M20 and I am unable to use the document loader on the top of the machine... why is this? I try to load the documents and press start, but then onlty a blank sheet is spit out, because of course the documents never get copied. I can only use the one-sheet-at-a-time glass scanner. I've read the instruction manuel a million times but nothing works. I'm at a loss here and do not know what to do anymore

What you want to do is this. Turn the machine off, then go to the back of the machine and unplug the document feeder, There is a white connector with 2 thumb screws holding it in place. loosen the 2 thumb screws and unplug the plug. With the feeder unplugged turn the machine back on and let it come to ready. Once it comes to ready turn the machine back off, then plug the document feeder back on and turn the machine back on. That should re detect the document feeder and work fine. The M20 for some reason just forgets it has a feeder and you have to force the plug and play portion of the software to detect the machine not having a feeder then seeing that is has one. I don't know why, not even the newest versions of firmware for the machine resolves that issue. Odd,,,,,
