Try to update the OS of the device or it may be the ball itself. They do sell replacements and do it yourself kits. You can perform a Google search for Blackberry trackball replacement. It is not expensive, less than $10.

Canon ir2016 jams papers under registration clutch. the clutch runs on power up but does not run when copig or printing help

This seems to be a common problem for the Canon ir 20 xx series machines. The problem is having machine indicating paper jams on the left hand side of the machine. When you open the left cover you do sometimes find paper stuck on entering the fuser unit. The main problem, and loads of these machines with these problems have been fixed, are the half moon pickup rollers! Clean the pickup rollers or even better, replace them and you will get the machine working 100%!! To confirm this try copying from the machine using the manual feed tray. You will never get a paper jam. This fault is due to incorrect pickup resulting in timing problem and thus getting paper jams! Good luck!

How to troubleshoot paper jam problem in printers?

Most common reason are as follows:-- Among the most common problems with any make of printer are paper jams. A printer will jam for any number of reasons: It’s dirty, the wrong paper type is being used, or the rollers on the printer that feed the paper through its pathway are worn down. While cleaning the printer periodically and using the correct paper type are easy fixes, roller replacement can be a difficult job depending on the model of HP printer. For some HP printers, the rollers are easily accessible, but you'll need to completely tear down other models to remove the rollers. Regardless of the cause, when removing a paper jam, always pull the paper in the direction of the paper path, because pulling it backwards can severely damage the printer.

Certain HP printers are more susceptible to paper jams than others. In my experience, any printer that holds the paper vertically and then pulls it down through the printer invariably ends up having paper jam problems. These models aren't designed for heavy use, but many organizations make use of them on individual systems and should be aware of this flaw. In addition, some people have trouble with the newer HP 4000 series printers' paper pickup rollers—which is odd, because the older 4000 and 5000 series HP printers are considered rock solid and don't seem to have any trouble with their pickup rollers.
This will help.good luck.

I have an hp p3005 with the jam code 13.01.00. It has had the feed rollers and sep pads replaced. When it runs it appears to catch on the separation pad itself since it shows a small buckle in the middle...

Replaced seperation pad?. separation pad work is to block multiple paper feeding,but in yourcase paper not at all feeding means paper pickup roller not picking up the papers.replace both 2 & 3 paper pickup rollers..

My copier will not pull the paper through to make copies it seems to want to jam -up ,when the paper start through

There are a couple of possible issues here. First, if the unit isn't new, the paper pickup rollers may have picked up 'chaf' from grabbing paper which over time reduces the ability of the rollers to grab paper. The 2nd option is that if the copier is older, the pickup rollers have dried up which reduces their stickyness and ability to grab paper. The 3rd option is that if you live in a very humid climate, the paper may have absorbed humidity, which can keep it from curling in the correct direction as its being pulled through the printer/copier.

The printer sends an error message saying there is no paper, even though there is some in the printer. It can't seem to grab the paper to feed it in. What can I do?

Warm water on a lint free cloth. stroke the pickup rollers in one direction as you turn the roller to clean off the coating that builds up. Let dry and try printing again.

Got a new part. don't know how to install it

I assume you either have recieved the separation pad or the paperpick roller. Here are instructions on how to replace both.

  1. Use the power switch to turn the product off and then unplug the power cord. Figure 1: Unplugging the power cord c00062340.gif
  2. Open the print-cartridge door, and remove the print cartridge. CAUTION: To prevent damage, do not expose the print cartridge to light. Cover the print cartridge or place it in a black plastic bag, if necessary. Also, do not touch the black-sponge transfer roller inside the product. Touching the transfer roller can damage the product.
  3. Locate the pickup roller. Figure 2: Removing the print cartridge, and locating roller c00062341.gif
  4. Gently release the small, white tabs on each side of the pickup roller by pushing them away from the roller, and then rotate the pickup roller toward the front. CAUTION: Use gentle pressure to release the small white tabs to avoid breaking them. Figure 3: Releasing the tabs c00062342.gif
  5. Gently pull the pickup roller up and out. Figure 4: Removing pickup roller c00062343.gif
  6. Perform one of the two following options:
    • Cleaning the pickup roller:
      1. Dampen a lint-free cloth with isopropyl alcohol, and scrub the roller.
      2. Using a dry lint free cloth, wipe the pickup roller to remove loosened dirt. Figure 5: Wiping the pickup roller c00062344.gif
    • Removing the new pickup roller from its packaging.
  7. Position the cleaned or replacement pickup roller in the slots on the pickup roller frame. NOTE: Circular and rectangular pegs on each side prevent incorrectly positioning the pickup roller. Figure 6: Positioning pickup roller c00062345.gif
  8. Rotate the top of the pickup roller into position until the white tabs on each side of the roller snap into place. NOTE: Touching the transfer roller can damage the product. Figure 7: Reinstalling the pickup roller c00062346.gif
  9. Reinstall the print cartridge and close the print-cartridge door.
  10. Plug the product in, and then use the power switch to turn on the product. Figure 8: Plugging the power cord in c00062347.gif
  11. Use the power switch to turn the product off and unplug the power cord. Figure 1: Turning off power and remove power cord c00062407.gif
  12. At the back of the product, unscrew the two screws that fasten the separation pad and frame to the product. Figure 2: Unscrewing the separation pad c00062408.gif
  13. Remove the separation pad and frame. Figure 3: Removing the separation pad c00062409.gif
  14. Perform one of the following two options:
    • To clean the separation pad: Dampen a lint-free cloth with isopropyl alcohol, and scrub the separation pad.
    • To replace the separation pad: Remove the new separation pad from its packaging
  15. Insert either the cleaned or replacement separation pad and frame and fasten it to the product with the two screws. Figure 4: Fastening the separation pad c00062410.gif
  16. Plug the product in, and then use the power switch to turn on the product. Figure 5: Turning the product on c00062411.gif

Roller ball will not work down.

Cleaning the roller ball with a lint free cloth seems to work pretty well. Lock the hand held and then just go to town on the roller ball with the lint free cloth.
