The paper pick up rollers have lost their grip and need replaced, but I wouldn't put that much expense into fixing it. That xerox is a sharp in disguise, although supplies are not interchangeable the parts are. Common repairs for that machine is the gear on the fixing roller will break, to pick up tires dry rot and the heat lamp will blow. For the expense to fix it can almost buy a new one with more features and cost less to operate. The xerox supplies are very expensive.
Just use the by pass until something else goes wrong.
Good luck

Laser printer manual feed jam


like the name goes, it is manual. You will have to feed the papers one after the other. if you do not want that, then load the papers into the automatic tray if you have one.
Incase none of the above works it means the roller that is suppose to pick the papers finds it hard to pass papers on to the other which you will have to replace.
good luck

Lasejet 4 plus- try to print. lower paper cassete full. printer screen says pc load letter and have to manualy load paper. print icon on computer says out of paper


There is a paper empty flag sensor, looks like a plastic paddle, in the tray area. Pull out the paper tray and flick it; make sure that it is not jammed.
Also on the right hand side there is a paper pick- up roller, clean it with a cloth with some alcohol. See page 4-13 for the location of paper feed pick-up roller. page 5-27 shows the paper empty sensor flag

Here is the service manual:

Xc 830 problems


why not take the developer and drum units out of the skew copy one and put them in the other? At least that will tell you if dev/drum/toner is the problem.......
Skew copies on the other...look for torn corners of paper tight in the end of feed chutes etc, sometimes clearing a jam will leave a bit in there enough to slow down that side of the feed.If you can see any rollers make sure they are closed and parallel to each other and clean...

Pixma i4000 - manual feed picks up 2 to 3 sheets at a time


Get a window cleaning product such as windowlene and a soft but LINT FREE cloth. Remove any paper from the feeder and turn off the machine

Look into to sheet feeder and identify any rubber areas. There should be a rubber pick up wheel and just beyond it a separator pad. There may also be a cork pad in the vicinity.

Use your cloth well dampened and clean all these item as best you can. You can rotate the wheels but ensure you go the correct direction and do not force anything that does not want to move. This will be chore as access is only easy for pixies. Once you have then cleaned and dried off, replace the paper and restore the power.

Try running a print job and see if it makes much difference. If it helps, then you will know that the pick up wheel and separator pad are worn out and could do with replacing.

The paper jam error is related to this issue as the printer is expecting the leading edge of the paper to pass its sensor and then 297mm later the trailing edge should pass the same point. If the machine feeds more than one sheet, the chances are that the paper length will be altered and the machine thinks a bit has been left behind.

Let me know how you get on

Paper Feed Problem


This is caused by the solenoid that is activated when picking up the paper. The solenoid is activated and the device goes through the motions of picking up the paper. It fails to pick up the paper or fully feed it past the leading edge sensor resulting in a jam error. You should replace the pick up solenoid assy and also the pick up roller and friction pads.

Yes it can probably be fixed. I hope you poked your friend in the eye for giving you such a headache though. You will need to dismantle the machine and remove the Auto Sheet Feeder (ASF) Once removed, check there is no bits of paper stuck inside. Then turn the pick up mechanisme by hand through a couple of revolutions to re synch everything. Also check the paper sensor is still intact - if not you can construct a new one from a piece of plastic or if the old one is still present, just glue it back together. You can download a service manual to hep you out with the dismantling from either: http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com http://mikeburton.tradebit.com/

Paper jam light flashes but no paper is jammed. I turned some gears and after a while it started to work. After one try, it did not copy and the light started flashing again.


There are four things I would check first. All depends on what was happening when the problem occurred. 1) If there was a paper jam to begin with, check to make sure all the paper came out and didn't tear. The two areas to check are in the transfer area below the cartridge and at the fuser area. 2) At these same two areas check the (usually black) plastic paw and make sure it isn't broken and functioning properly. 3)Paper/paper dust can accumulate around the photo interrupter and cause mis reads for paper jams. Again this is in the same area. 4) If the paper feeds out of the cassette about in inch and then jams for no apparent reason, it is usually caused from dirty/worn pick up tires. If this is a symptom I would clean the pick ups with alcohol. Hope this helps
