This 1631 has clip on (Green) pickup tires - Any sources???

Regular Suppliers only carry the old slip on black tires. These are snap in. Could I change the whole shaft with the old style?

You could try, or failing that take the tyres off the wheels and swap them.

My HP CM 2320nf is not pulling the paper through when I try to send a fax

The document feeder on this printer is extremely delicate and very finicky. I have 8 of these printers and 5 of them exibited the same issue. Open the document feeder and rotate the pickup backward with the green lever. The paper sensor has to be snapped in on both sides. It is the one thing that keeps popping out on all of mine. The sensor is the piece that floats up and down between the gears and has a green flag that lowers the capstan down to contact the paper. Good luck, but I have a feeling these are nothing but the regular old JUNK that hP seems to be pushing on us now...LOL!

How do I clean the rollers on my IBM Infoprint 1332??


I most cases if you are having paper pickup issues with this unit the rollers will be worn down not just dirty. The pickup rollers that pull the paper from the paper tray on the bottom of the printer are not very expensive, they run about $4.00 We carry them in stock at: Replacing them would be much better than just cleaning the rollers. If you pull the paper tray out and look under the bottom of the printer you will see 2 small rollers with rubber tires on them. These are the pickup rollers, they should feed rough, if they feel smooth then they need to be replaced. We also carry the full preventive Maintenance roller kit that includes the pickup rollers, charge roller and the transfer roller. We provide full tech support for all purchases too.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution,

X215 paper pickup roller needs to be replaced

My experience is paper pickup rubber is old, shrunk and dried out. You can replace the entire roller assembly (including shaft) or the roller only or just the rubber, sponge tire on the roller.

The pickup roller with its square shaft and bearings are removed as an assembly. Remove

1) Cartridge

2) Paper Tray

3) Rear Cover
Four M3x10mm bright washerhead threading screws. Two of them are very low down in deep wells.
Carefully tug the cover rearward to remove it.
Note the parallel printer connector's bails when reinstalling this cover.

4) Right Side Cover (Optional)
Carefully tug the cover forcefully rearward to remove it.

5) Left Side Cover
Disconnect the speaker.
Gently tug the cover forcefully rearward to remove it.

6) Drivetrain Assembly
Mark the green ground wire location at one of the center screw.
Six M3x10mm bright washerhead threading screws.
One cable connection.

7) Gear Support Plate at Front Left
Three M3x10mm bright washerhead threading screws.

8) Electronics Pan
Two M3x10mm bright washerhead threading screws at the rear. NOTE the black ground wire at the left side screw.
Ten M3x10mm bright washerhead threading screws from underneath. NOTE that two of the screws are accessed through 10mm diameter holes in the pan.
Note the cable connections do not have to be disconnected and the electronics pan does not have to be completely removed.

9) Pickup Clutch
Pull it straight off. NOTE that it's indexed to only go on, one way. Note the other gears and their position (take a picture!)

10) Pickup Roller Assembly (w/Shaft)
One side bearing has a claw. Release the claw and the bearing can be slid toward the pickup roller, enabling removal of the entire pickup roller assembly.
Carefully remove the just old roller tire (or carefully just cut the old one lengthwise and discard). If you are careful, you can remove the entire pickup wheel by unlatching the small fasteners and removing the whole wheel, remove the old tire, reinstall a new tire and reassemble the entire assembly.

Sharp AL-1631 bottom paper feed will not pick up paper.

A few things could be the problem.
  1. The paper in tray could be damaged
  2. The drawer separator pawls (metal taps on the right side of tray where paper touches)
  3. Paper backstop not in or in wrong spot (green plastic piece at back of paper)
  4. Feed tires are worn or dirty
Does the copier try and feed from tray 2? If it tries but the paper doesn't leave the try look and see if there is a dark mark on the page (top middle towards the right). If so then most likely the feed tire is worn.

The green tab is a corona wire cleaner. there is a spot for it on the base of the unit when you open the right door.

This device will not impact printing on the copier whether it is installed or not. It serves as a holder.

Paper cannot pass the Fuser/pressure rollers

We have many of the 1700N printers and have found that the 2 paper pickup tires must be in good condition to avoid frequent jams. I would highly suggest replacing the 2 paper pickup tires if this printer has a lot of copies on it.You can slip the tires off of the plastic roller and see if they are shiny. If so, replace them.

Samsung ML-2010 won't feed paper

This is a step-by-step process for replacing the tire (roller). Thanks to dizzyzuma for helping me get the right part and get the procedure down.

1: You will need to manually shut off the printer in the middle of printing in order to release the tabs. Put in a few sheets of junk paper and print a few blank documents. You want to shut off the printer using the switch in the back when the roller is approximately in this position:


2: Hold the down the two side tabs that are locking the tire into place and press down on the tire with your finger. It should pop off relatively easily.


3: Turn the printer back on. The tire will rotate around to its starting position, but it will now be unlocked. Turn the printer back off.


4: Rotate the tire towards you and unhook the two bottom hinges. It should come off without much force.



5: Replace the old tire with the new tire.


6: Re-insert the tire onto one of the bottom hinges and rotate it around so that both of the bottom hinges (tabs) are in.


7: While holding the back of the metal bar with your fingers for leverage, press firmly with your thumb to snap the tire back into place.


8: Turn back on the print. You’re good to go.
