Question about Toshiba E-STUDIO 450 Copier

1 Answer

The copier keeps saying to put doc. feeder down and i it is. I ha

Don't know what is going on but in the readout box keeps telling be to put doc. feeder down when it already is. Once I open and it resets then place the doc in the feeder it gives me the same message again. Have to restart all over. It works fine when i just place on the glass and copy I have a toshiba e-Studio 45 and when it is on and warmed up it says Ready. However once paper is loaded into the ADF it says 'Please Place Document Feeder in the Down Position'. I have checked the sensors including the Platen Sensor as mentioned above in the 03 Input/Output mode and they are all functional. I think there is a problem with the Feed Motor and I was wondering if that might have anything to do with the Error the Control Panel is displaying.

My c-20 copier will not print from glass. prints blank pages. will only print the ones placed on the feeder.

I know this silly, but you put the originals on the opposite end of the glass. I don't mean to insult anyone, but I don't know your experience with this machine.

The fact that it copies thru the feeder, tells me the copier is ok. The doc feeder uses the same optics.

hope this helps

I'm getting a "PLACE DOC. FEEDER IN DOWN POSITION" message when I place a document in Doc Feeder input tray of my Toshiba E-Studio 3511 copier. It is down. I have removed and reinstalled the feeder...

On the rear left side of the copier there should be a black hinged actuator sticking up out of a hole in the panel, directly opposite of that there should be a white plastic tab that pushes that actuator down. If not try taping the actuator down flat with the cover.

Document feeder door open

The doc feeder is the one on top, there's a sensor in the hinge at the rear. If the tab is broken from the top cover, you need to fold a piece of paper and put it inside the horse shoe shaped sensor to get past the error.

The copier keeps saying to put doc. feeder down and i it is. I ha

When you lift/ open the ADF you should see a tab in the back corner (slightly in from the corner) of the ADF. This tab is for the machine to see that the ADF is closed. Make sure tab is there. On its sister model they used a depression switch, check that and make sure it is there and working properly.

NP6050 false paper jam at doc feeder

When you put documents in the feeder and you push start do you see 2 black arms swing out to count the number of orignals? If yes, dose the doc tray begin to go down and then jams? If yes, you can try something.... OK, turn the copier off and move the 2 paper guides of the doc tray toward the middle. You need a #2 philip's head screw driver. Remove the 2 silver screws that will be sunk in a bit on the top of the doc tray. Once you remove the screws, remove the top part of the doc tray and you will have one connector toward the front. Unplug it and replug it back in and see if that works, if so return the 2 screws and you should be OK.

Doc cover open

Yes there is and I know your problem have a look at the left hinge on lid that you lift to put down an original for copying, it will be breaking apart, the switch is black in that same corner on doc feeder base, as the hinge breaks apart the doc feed lifts in that corner causing "doc cover open" cause that switch no longer gets pushed in when lid is shut

Dodgy repair - tape switch closed, but doc feeder will not work properly/can use glass.

Repair - Easy removal of three screws and replacing 20buck hinge bought from brother dealer...part no.LE8731001 Hinge assy left.

Now that's FIXYA!
