Sounds like a scanner issue, when you make a copy, lift the lid slightly, does the scanner pass by smoothly? if not, it may be obstructed, or it could have a motor problem.
If it an obstruction, you should see it as the scanner moves, turn the machine off then on, this usually causes a scanner pass and reset to home. Look through the glass as it does so to see if it is catching on anything. if it is a foreign object, remove the glass and clean out the optic cavity.
If only one side moves or the scanner is crooked, it has slipped on its cables.
If it just moves in jerky fashion, it could be the motor.

Hope this is of some help.

Blank page when I copy or print reports


Re check all the connections. When taking off the paper feed assay, other parts and plug and jack connections were needed to be taken off first.
Make sure the drum seats in its correct position, silver grounds are not bent.
The copy cartridge and Dev housing are not connecting very good somewhere.
Make sure the machine is unplugged.
Try running copies.

How do u load paper? front or back side up?


Hi, It dosen`t matter how you load paper, Copy paper are blank on both side, now if you are reusing paper with prints on one side then you do it by trial and error.
Now if you meant how to load document on top, then that`s a different story, most fax machines require that you put the document face down. I would suggest that you make a copy from a document face down and if it comes out ok, fine, if the copy comes out blank then you need to put the document face up instead.
Hope this helps.
