First check if the paper release lever is pulled, thus releasing the tension on the rollers. If this is alright, then there is a real possibility that you have a label or something stuck on the feed rollers or in the paper pan. If you can remove the platen, then you can remove the gunk, if not, then you will probably need to get someone to service the machine for you. Digging in behind there can sometimes solve the problem, but it can also sometimes create other problems. Hope this helps.

Automatic document feeder(ADM) for Muratec F-112 fax-printer will not grab paper for processing. Wheel spins but paper does not advance unless forced into ADM


There is a small "re-feed" pad under the PF Roller which might need replacing OR the PF roller itself may need replacing. The machine when new should have come with a spare "re-feed" pad.

The automatic document feeder doesn't grab the paper unles the sheet of paper is pushed. Even then, feeding doesn't work well. Can you help?


Generally, you could clean the document feed rollers with WD-40, or a platen cleaner, but better yet, you should replace the pads and feed roller and I think you could do it yourself with my roller kit:

I cant get the machine to grab the paper and it says its out of paper, yet its not out of paper.


Hi, the Ip3000 has 3 different feeding trays...
make sure that the printer is trying to "grab" the paper in the tray that you have chosen to use in the printer properties box...
when you give the print command can you see the rubber roller moving to grab the paper in the top feeder tray???
if the roller that feeds the printer is not moving you may have accidentally changed the settings to grab paper from the bottom tray...the one right under the door that opens to let printed pages out of the printer...
the 3rd feeder tray is the DVD/CD printing tray...
I suggest that you look at the printer Properties for remedial action...
hope this helps you with your problem...
cheers
haitchhcee
p.s.
suggest you place paper in the bottom tray before making adjustments to see if it is trying to grab the paper from there...

The document feeder of our won't grab the paper


Check first the rollers and stripper pad if they are very sticky, just replace those roller. If not you can dismantle the covers on the feeders.find a solenoid and check the spring that attach on it. If the spring is broken replace it or just make a loop from the spring and reintall it from the solenoid. Then try to feed paper.

Paper jam in Panasonic KX-


Your document feed is separate from your received and report prints so that's why your reports are printing ok and the document feeder jams. When you open up the doc feeder and look inside the machine you will see a roller and above it on the cover that opens you will see a rubber pad. Clean both the roller and pad (in fact anything in there that is rubber) with a rubber cleaner, alcohol, or even soap and water on a cloth without it been dripping wet. You will probablt find that they are very dirty. The roller feeds the document in so that needs to be clean and the pad helps to keep all the other docs from feeding in at the same time and that should be very clean so it produces good friction.

PAPER FEED DOESNT WORK KONICA MINOLTA COLOR PRINTER


This happened to me one time after I pulled out a jammed paper the wrong way. I pulled it from the paper tray. Heard the sounds, it tried to grab the paper, but couldn't. It happened a long time ago, so I'm fuzzy on which part I tinkered with...but I recall that because I pulled the paper (backwards) from the tray, it flipped a lever/feeder/roller/thing and that 's why it wasn't grabbing the paper. If you look in the paper tray as the rollers go down to grab the paper, you'll see what's not working......sorry, lame solution.

Feeding paper for scanning/faxing - e-studio350


If u put stack of papers on the feeder, but it didnt pick well or paper jam occur, u need to check the feeder unit. Normally roller is wear and tear, foreign materials inside the feeder and etc will cause paper jam on feeder.

Information on how to use rear feed


1. Prepare your doc/file for printing.
2. Insert card stock with narrow side of stock in slot in back of printer until it hits rollers and stops. Don't force in any card stock thicker than max. rated.
3. Change printer setup to feed from rear.
4. Print.

Depending on what software you print from, you may need to change this each time you print if you intend to keep printing from that "tray."

Not feeding


Have you still getting the problem, have you done cleaning of Cartridge, its nozzle and Contact strip.. then cleaning of Printer roller or carriage rack.. Do a Service of it or get it done by Technician.

Also check the feeder tray.. to grab paper one by one by printer.. Manually

Take all updates for printer and OS.

Canon Pixma Paper feed not feeding!!


Either the pickup roller needs to be replaced,(a maintenance kit) or the tray isn't pushing the paper high enough to grab. Tyr loading a few more pages in the tray and making sure the tray is seated properly. Then try replacing the roller.
