Use some compressed air to blow out the sensors, they are likely dust covered, a can of computer duster will generally do the job.
Make sure the machine is unplugged before attempting any repairs.

Hope this is of some help.

Motor runs continuously on Auto, suddenly won't take paper. Brand new


My shredder started to keep running shortly after I purchased it. The shredder I am working on is a Simply Shredder model SG-836C. I could get no support from the company. But being a tech myself, I decided to troubleshoot it myself. There are two screws that hold the top shredding unit onto the base unit. Remove these two screws and take the top off. Leave the (3) three big screws alone and remove the other small screws, I believe there are (7) total. Separate the top so you can see the circuit board and the three LED sensors, one for the paper slot, one for the CD slot and one for the credit card slot. Remove the three holders for the "CLEAR" LED's which are the infrared LED's that light up. The darker ones are the sensors that read the light. Once you have the clear LED's loose, use a camera phone or digital camera and hold the led's up to the camera. You should see bright lights out of all the LED's. On mine, the paper slot LED was substantially dimmer than the CD and Card LED's, so I knew there was the problem. I went to Radio Shack and bought PN 276-0143 and replaced the paper slot Infrared LED by soldering a new one in. You will have to remove some heatshrink to get to the solder joint on the LED. Be sure and add some new heat shrink down the wire before soldering the new LED in. Then, move the heat shrink up to the base of the LED and over the new solder joint and heat it up so it shrinks around the wire. Reinstall all of the LED's into the holder and give it a whirl. This fixed my problem. However, one of the other two could potentially cause the problem as well. Basically, all of the three LED'sNow, my shredder is all happy again and I am too. The company only offered me to buy another unit at a discount. I asked them why I would buy another one when this one failed so early after purchasing it. The repair might take you an hour to do, but you will have your shredder back to normal. I have seen online that others have had this same problem, so I hope this is a help in getting you back your shredder. Good luck!

Try to restart it by shutting down the pc and the printer. Pull out the the power plug of your printer and unplug the plug of your printer from pc. After that plug -in again the cable to your printer to pc and plug in the power cable of your printer after that turn on your pc and your printer.

Fax sent and copy has a 2 inches black belt on left


This is scanner defect. You could have a scrap of paper or something in the slot where your documents are fed in but I suspect that the scanner led array has a few bad led's and that is what is causing the black line. When your original is fed in there is a "light bar" that lights up to scan the original. This light bar is made up of a row of small led lights. I have seen these led's loose connection so that a few do not light up and this causes the problem you describe. They are usually repairable but the problem is you can replace this fax with a new one for under $100 and the repair most likely will cost more.

Paper jammed


Hi there,
Paper Jams

Cause 1 : Paper jams in the paper output slot/Auto Sheet Feeder.
Action : Remove the paper according to the following procedure.
a) Slowly pull the paper out, either from the Auto Sheet Feeder or from the paper output slot, whichever is easier.
* If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the machine, open the Scanning Unit and remove it. Be careful not to touch the components inside the machine at this time. After removing the paper, close the Scanning Unit, turn OFF and turn it back ON.
* If you cannot pull the paper out, turn the machine OFF and turn it back ON. The paper will be ejected automatically.
b) Reload the paper into the machine and press [OK].
* If you have turned OFF the machine in step a), you will need to retry printing, because this operation cancels any print jobs in progress.
If you cannot remove the paper or the paper tears inside the machine, or if the paper jam error continues after removing the paper, contact a Canon service representative.

Cause 2 : Landscape Credit Card-size Paper Jams inside the Machine.
Action : You cannot load Credit Card-size paper in the landscape orientation.
If <PAPER JAMMED> or <E3> is displayed on the LCD/LED, remove the paper following the procedure below:
a) Load Credit Card-sized paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder one sheet at a time.
Do not load it in the landscape orientation.
b) Press [ON/OFF] on the machine to turn OFF the power.
c) Press [ON/OFF] again on the machine to turn ON the power.
The paper is fed and the jammed paper is ejected accordingly.
If you cannot remove the jammed paper or the error still persists, contact a Canon service representative.

Hope this helps
Please rate my response.
Thanks
Have a good day.

My Brother HL-2040 paper led light won't stop flashing, the paper's not jammed or anything, I just put in a new toner, too. I tried doing what someone else said about opening the cover and holding Go until...


Hi. The reasons listed in the manual that cause the LED to flash normally are:

Front cover is open
Close the front cover of the printer.
Back cover is open
Close the back cover of the printer.
Paper jam
Clear the paper jam. See Paper jams and how to clear them on page 6-5.
If the printer does not start printing, press the Go button.
No paper fed manual feed slot
Put the paper in the manual feed slot. See Printing on plain paper, bond paper
or transparencies from the manual feed slot on page 1-10 or Printing on thick
paper, labels and envelopes from the manual feed slot on page 1-13.
Memory full
The printer memory is full and the printer cannot print full pages of a
document. See Solving print problems on page 6-15.
Print overrun
A print overrun occurred and the printer cannot print full pages of a document.
See Solving print problems on page 6-15.
Drum Error
The corona wire needs to be cleaned. See Cleaning the corona wire on page 5-14.

If you check out page 6-5 it tells how to clear the paper jam from the rear of the machine! A point often missed.

Check out the website below if you don’t have a copy of the instruction manual =

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/doc002089/US_Eur.pdf

If all else fails, try a reset of the printer Drum & Page counter:
  1. With printer tuned on.
  2. Press and hold the “internal button” behind front cover, until all LEDs illuminate.
  3. Make sure Drum light is off, then release and close front cover.
Hope some of this helps………..Please post a response back here and let us all know if it works?............Regards, Cornwellnet (UK)

Paper shredder


Shredders have a light emitter and detector inside the slot where you put the paper. When the paper is put in, the emitted light is reflected off the paper, detected, and then turns on the shredder by sending a signal to the control board. The emitter/detector often has a plastic cover which over time collects paper dust. The paper dust can reflect the emitted light back onto the detector, causing the shredder to remain on. You may need to remove the top of the shredder and remove the shredding mechanism to get to the light sensor. It's also possible that the components on the control board have changed value, causing the detector sensitivity to increase. This may result in the unit turning itself on in daytime and off at night.
