Broken feeder arm

We had a paperjam and when we went to pull out the paper it would no longer feed anything. So i pulled off the two screws under the lid and when i hit stop to see if it would rotate or maybe it was offset a small plastic finger to which the arm attaches to the roller was just sticking in the grease. I am trying to find where to buy the new part and the proper way to remove and replace the old arm

Re: Broken feeder arm

Buy a 2.hand dcp 110 at eBay. It has the same printengine. remove the cable and the ONE (;-)) screw on the left handside in the hole. Replace the hole printunit. Fix cable and printhead. Its cheaper and saves a lot of time!

When I try to print only one side of the paper is pulled down

Probably you have a object which blocks paper from left side on feeder.Look carefully using flashlight in the feeder.If you don't see anything the printer must be disassembled.

Printer will not feed paper

Printer would not feed paper no matter how many sheets were in the bin or how clean the printer. I even cleaned the roller. The issue was I just needed a little more tension on the roller that pulled the paper in.

I removed the rear access door (see manual). Off to the left near the feeder roller you will see a spring. What I did is mover the spring to the END of the plastic arm that it is attached to (if it is missing have a bigger problem). If you have moved your printer around a bit, the spring may have slipped down on to the arm and is no longer sitting at the end. This will extend the spring another 1/16 of an inch ...and that is all all it took for me. My printer will now feed a single sheet of paper with no issues. BTW: I put a drop of glue on it after so it would not slip off.

CLX 2160 - paperjam

There is probably a jam in the paper feed area. Pull the paper tray out and stick your hand in to find and remove any paper stuck there. Then reinstall the paper tray and open and close the front door of the printer. The jam should be cleared.

If it is still showing paper jam, pull the tray out again and look to make sure you didn't miss any paper, then check the other areas of the printer (starting with the exit area) for paper.

Check Document

Look at the sensor arms on the feeder feeder,and take it off from the sides..there are little wings that pop out of socket, and look at the black toggle arms... one most likely is dislodged...make sure they all toggle freely...ckeck the one towards the bottom first...if you have to , take screws out and pull cover apart to re-insert toggle arms....

Feed problem

line gear has a broken tooth on it, possibly. or you have a sliver of paper stuck under the plenum (large black roller that paper wraps around to feed). you can pop the cover off, by pulling the front edge up and away from the base (clips in only, no screws). remove the plenum with tabs that pull up on either side of it. pull out the plenum, and check for any paper under that area. good luck.

Printer pulling on paper

My husband took the top cover off the printer and took a good look inside with a flashlight. He found a hot pink crayon stuck where the paper feeds through. I guess I should have had a better look initially, since the paper never made it all the way through the printer. Works like a charm now!!
