The paper partially feeds in the upper tray and then you hear a grinding noise and it says scanner failure


clean the rollers
Used a clean paper
Open the area the paper feeds in on the scanner
lift the roller
without paper try to make a copy
press the flag-like hardware part on the ground portion of the scanner feeder
then forcefully put the whiteroller to the ground as if its trying to make a copy without the paper
to test if its working fine while you are pressing down the flag structure on the ground area also do it 2x

The belt inside my scanjet 4200c has come off. How do I reattach it? I have opened the scanner. It looks to be relatively easy but I don't know how to attach the belt to the motor etc


Instructions

1 Lift the hatch on the feed tray and pull up the large green tab to the left of the roller. Remove any jammed or torn paper from under the roller and around the feed tray.
2 Pull the input feed tray out of the automatic document feeder. Grasp the feed tray with both hands and pull it straight out.
3 Check the interior of the automatic document feeder for jammed paper. Remove any jammed paper, then reinsert the feed tray into the automatic document feeder. Push down the feeder cover until you hear a click.

The copy paper feed misaligns and jams, what's the fix? Jack


to fix misalign and paper jam problem, follow this steps.

Load one or two sheets of unused plain white full-size paper into the document feeder tray, and then press Start Copy Black to pull the pages through the automatic document feeder. The plain paper releases and absorbs residue from the rollers and separator pad.
NOTE: If the automatic document feeder does not pick up the plain paper, try cleaning the front roller. Wipe the roller with a soft lint-free cloth dampened with distilled water.

If the problem persists, or the automatic document feeder does not pick up the plain paper, clean the rollers and separator pad manually.

Follow the steps below to clean the rollers or separator pad.

1.Lift the cover of the automatic document feeder. This allows access to the rollers and the separator pad.
2.Lightly dampen a clean, lint-free cloth with distilled water, then squeeze any excess liquid from the cloth.
3.Use the damp cloth to wipe any residue off of the rollers or the separator pad.
4.Close the cover of the automatic document feeder.
This should solve the problem. Cheers!

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 MP600 printer - paper feed


Issue: Paper feeds skewed
Solution: Clean The Paper Feed Rollers Using The Operation Panel - MP600

Clean The Paper Feed Rollers Using The Unit's Operation Panel If the paper feed roller is dirty, paper is not fed properly because the paper feed roller slips. Cleaning the paper feed roller could resolve the paper feeding problem. Please follow the instructions below to clean the Paper Feed Rollers directly from the unit. Caution: Since the cleaning process wears down the paper feed roller, perform this procedure only when necessary.
  1. Ensure that the machine is powered on and remove any paper from the auto sheet feeder or the cassette.

  2. Use the <Feed Switch> button to select the paper source where you do the paper feed roller cleaning. Click for here additional information.

  3. Press the <HOME> (A) button.

  5. Use the Easy-Scroll Wheel (B) or press the right / left arrow to select [Maintenance], then press <OK>.

  6. Use the Easy-Scroll Wheel (B) or press the up / down arrow to select [Roller cleaning], then press <OK>.

  7. Use the up / down cursor button to select [Yes], then press the <OK> button. (The paper feed roller cleaning starts.)

  8. To check if the rollers are clean, load a sheet of Letter-sized plain paper in the same paper source you selected in step 2.

Can't Print on Card


I had the same problem with my 3 year old HP Officejet 5610. Feeding heavy paper or white card stock would result in a paper jam. The card stock would start to feed, but then stop half way. The pinch rollers seemed to spin without advancing the paper, even if the paper was fed one sheet at a time.

Solution: Clean the rubber pinch rollers with isopropyl rubbing alcohol. Partial disassembly/reassembly required.

To access the rollers, remove the scanner plate:
1. Disconnect power, USB, and phone cables.
2. Open up the scanner sheet feeder by tilting it left.
3. Unlatch the scanner scanner feeder so that it opens completely vertical. Latch is on front hinge only.
4. Remove the 4 corner hex screws on the scanner plate. Remove the 2 hex screws on the sheet feeder. (I used a small flat blade screw driver in the hex heads)
4. Lift the plate and sheet feeder away from printer box. Disconnect the 2 flat cable wires from the circuit board.
5. Scrub rubber pinch rollers with alcohol on a swab. Dry thoughly.
6. Reassemble. (NOTE: This is a good time to clean the underside of the glass plate and the scanner head)
