Help-the paper feeder does feed the paper so the amounts print on top of each other.

If the document feeder is not feeding paper properly, the first thing I would suspect is the feed rollers ( 2 or 3 in total,) as they have the tendency to become dirty and worn. My suggestion would be to open the document feeder, take a clean rag and some general cleaner (no solvent,) and wipe down each roller as best you can. This will act to remove any trapped dirt or debris in the feed roller traction marks, and thus give you a more reliable document feeder. However, if this fails to alleviate the issue and the rollers appear worn, replacing them would be your next step.

I would suggest as a good source for printer, copier, and fax supplies.

My fax is having a problem feeding pages through the document feeder, it doesn't always grad the page, and if it doesn't get it, it acts like it has a paper jam, what is causing this?

Open the document feeder. Inside you will find a grey feed roller. Cleaning this roller with a cloth dampened with water will help with these paper jams in the document feeder.

How do i fax multi pages at once

Your document feeder should allow you it install a stack of originals, amount depends on machine specifications. Dial one number and send your multi-page document.

if not the feeder tires may need to be cleaned, a few drops of alcohol in the center of a clean piece of paper then run it through the feeder, put the paper in then when it stops press the stop button and it should eject the document, in doing so pass the alcohol past the feed tires. do this a couple of times then try your multi-page document again.

Hope this helps

I have HP all in one. The feed for fax stopped working. how do I fix it.?

try copying blank pages. If it feeds the paper, then try faxing again. If it does not feed the paper, then open the feeder and clean the rollers and the separator pad. You can use a coffee filter moisten with distilled or bottled water to clean them.

Try copying blank pages again to check if it feeds the paper.

Fax double feeds sheets

This may occur if:
-the paper is too thick or too thin
-the roller mechanism is not properly aligned or has worn out
-the sheets of paper stick together

things you can try:
-unload the paper in the main tray and bend the stack of paper to loosen it up. Reload the paper to the main tray

Hope this helps!

Feeds two sheets on top of each other through feeder when transmitting.

The problem is not the sensor, itis the rollers that feed and seperate the paper.
the sensor only tells it there is paper, in the machine. then there is a tire that feeds the paper and another that stops the others from feeding at the same time. If the tire ( on some models it's a pad that looks like it has a rubber or a cork.) is old it looses it's grip and let's the paper slip by. Try cleaning with alcohol, must be replaced eventually.
