Document won't feed


Paper Pick up Rollers get dirty or worn out with the passage of time. Hence, require cleaning or replacement if worn out. In case you find them dirty use a soft, dry, lint free cloth to clean the rollers. Dont use chemicals as they may damage the rubber and plastic. However, if needed, you can use damp cloth or some cleaning liquid such as mild detergent of glass cleaner to damp the cloth. As you have posted your question under Panasonic KX-FL511 is would highlight the steps for it. Im Using a similar model KX-FL612

After lifting the top cover, you have to pull down the under part of it down to locate the rollers
Lift the top Cover, Locate the roller and clean them..
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

When faxing, pages will not pick up unless "pushed"

The ADF or automatic document feed roller(s) are dirty and need to be cleaned. Just open up the panel where the documents go into and look for the feed roller that feeds the documents in. It is a grey or black rubber tire about 1.5 inches wide and will be i the center when looking from left to right. Use a cloth with a little glass cleaner sprayed on the cloth and clean an area of the tire then rotate the tire to clean the rest of it.
Once done your documents should feed fine again.
Very common problem that I see all the time.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya

Fax T 104, can recieve but not send. Can hear the fax signal fro

When you hear the fax signal press the start button on your machine. If this does not work attempt to just make a copy of a document without sending to test the document feeder - help the document by gently pushing the document into the machine when it should be feeding. If you can feel the machine trying to grab it but it doesn't have enough strentgh or it will feed with your help then the feed rollers are probably dirty and you may be able to open up the top cover and clean the rubber rollers with alcohol or degreaser. If the feed rollers do not even turn when trying to make a copy then you may have a motor, belt or clutch problem. If it copies well but will not send, then you will probably have a modem or fax lead problem. Try a new fax lead.

Sharp UX-A1000 Fax Machine Document Feeding Trouble

Problem is most likely caused by a worn paper pick roller. It would be more expensive to repair this fax than to just replace it.

Personal fax problem

its seems as though you may have a sensor problem or dirty rollers which feed in your original document. Try this:

open up the cover where you feed in your original document and clean all feed rollers which are normally rubber rollers and make sure you dry them off.
also check for a little arm sticking out which is a sensor flag and make sure it is not damaged and also that it springs back up when pressed.
Can you please let us know the make and model of fax please.
Hope this helps.

I have an hp laserjet 3050 fax machine. When I go to fax several documents at one time, the fax grabs the whole stack and sucks them through. How can I fix this problem?

The first step is to insure that the top cover on the Automatic Document Feeder is closing properly. If it is not, the pages may multiple feed. If that is fine, then there is a pad that separates one page from the next in the ADF assembly. It wears out over time and begins to let the pages multiple feed. The part is normally replaced with the feed roller in the ADF at the same time. These are usually changed by a technician. The part #'s are RM1-0890 for the pad and RM1-0885 for the roller, you should be able to order them online.

Hope this helps!

Auto feed of outgoing fax document.

Replacing the roller can be prety extensive work. Try to check and make that the pick-up roller on the bottom is flat across sometimes it can get turns backwards and it has a round side that will not grasp the paper. If this is ture just take your finger and push the roller forwards. You can alo take a clean wipe and wipe off all of the rollers the rollers are made to be a little tacky when they start to get a little older dust can build up on them causing them not to grab the paper

Brother 2820 paper feeding problem

An easy fix would be to try to clean the paper feed rollers in the paper pick up area with a gentle cleaner like soap and water or simple green. Do not use alcohol as this will break down the rubber over time. If this doesn't work, you may have drive problem and will need to refer to a professional to resolve.
