The squeek is caused by friction if you have a steady hand get a bottle of 3 in 1 oil .. apply one drop of oil to each side of the roller ( make sure you put the oil on the metal pin that hold the rollers in place)Then feed a paper through so it lubricates those areas. this will stop the squeeking sound. Be very carefull not to get any oil on the roller. You want the oil on the metal pin that holds the roller in place. If you get oil on the roller use rubbing alchohol and a cue tip to clean it off. This is the safest liquid to use its not abrasive and it evaporates.

I get plain paper or double when I received fax from my uf5300 laser 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.

When we send fax, the rubber roller on top which grabs the sheet does not have enough pressure to lead the sheet in the machine. So the fax cannot go through and be sent. Do people still provide service...


The paper pickup roller in the Feeder is bad and needs replacement. But still if you want to use it for some time then you can clean the roller with some cleaning liquid like a glass cleaner, even indl. alcohol also. But remember that the liquid should not be applied directly to the roller. Always use a clean cloth for this. And do not take much quantity so it should drip inside. Try to clean well by rotating the roller slowly.

Take care.

Paper feeder does not feed papers properly.

Remove the paper tray and check the pickup rollers that are located on the underside of the fax, just above where the paper would sit when the tray is installed. If they are smooth this is a sign that they are worn out. Newer pickup rollers are very grippy. A quick temporary fix would be just wiping any grime or dust off with a damp cloth.

The fax will not pull the paper through

What kind of fax? Is it a roll or plain paper. Pull the paper out and examine the roller that is pulling the paper in. If this roller has white paper dust on it wipe off with some water on a papertowel and try again.

Samsung scx-4521f lines on feeder scan

Hi there,
Youll find that the most common problem with fax machines is that the scanner head that the paper passes over actually gets gritty and dirty. Remember it only takes a spek sitting in there.
Try a damp cloth (not to much Water) and wipe down the sensor reader, It will take a little bit of trial and error but mainly this is the common problem. also try wiping down all the wheels and rollers that the paper runs over as well. Otherwise it could be the recieval end that has a dirty paper feed wheel.
Sometimes it is also common that the internal scanner/sensor reader wears out and needs replacement.
IF this is the case its generally cheaper to buy another fax. Hopefully the above helps for you so you dont have to buy another one

Auto feed of outgoing fax document.

Replacing the roller can be prety extensive work. Try to check and make that the pick-up roller on the bottom is flat across sometimes it can get turns backwards and it has a round side that will not grasp the paper. If this is ture just take your finger and push the roller forwards. You can alo take a clean wipe and wipe off all of the rollers the rollers are made to be a little tacky when they start to get a little older dust can build up on them causing them not to grab the paper

When the 'paper-dust' settles on the rubber rollers, they tend to squeak!. Blow/**** using a vaccum cleaner. Even after this if the squeaking persists, then apply 1 drop of a good lubricating oil, which is not very viscous. Watch oil is ideal. Ensure that only a drop is added just to lubricate. Excess oil can damage your documents and/or scanner. Ensure there is no bend in the roller. If there is a bend, you have to replace the roller.
