Orange roller When I try to copy, the paper jams right at the orange roller. It appears to be some kind of white substance built up on the rollers. What can I clean them with.

Re: orange roller

I hope this helps. The "orange roller" is most likely the fuser/fixing roller. If that is so then it is probably made of hard rubber that is encased in a plastic coating. That plastic coating acts like the teflon in a cooking pan but in this case it is toner and paper you don' t want to stick. Through extreme heat and pressure the toner is bound to the to the paper by the "orange roller". With time and wear the plastic coating will separate from the rubber roller and appear whitish and almost foreign looking as it looses it's bond to the roller.There is also a set of brown plastic fingers that ride against the orange roller that act like spatulas to separate the paper from the roller as to prevent the paper from wrapping around the roller. They can have toner build up or other defects with use. Both the roller and the fingers are natural wear items and will cause jams,especailly fan-folds.

Cannon pc 921 won't feed paper from tray or bypass, shows P for out of paper but tray is full I can't find any jam

Try cleaning the feed roller using ammonia solution. The sizing used in the manufacturing of paper has waxy substances that accumulate in the pores of the rubber rollers and reduce the friction on the feed roller..

Sir I have canon IR2016J that some of days paper jam tray not working properly message shows paper jam open left cover but there no paper in machine.

first, do you copy from second drawer or bypass tray or first drawer?

Open the left door, in lower section open the paper cover. Now remove drawer. If You look from the left door side beneath the drum unit, you will see axis with 2 rollers, CLEAN them with alcohol or water by rubbing them, and dry them with dry cloth.
Also if you look little closer beneath the axis with rollers you will see the two rollers ( grey, one above the other ) clean them also or replace them if the rubber on them are too smooth.

If the problem appears when copy from second drawer, i.e. A3, you need to replace the pick-up clutch!

If the problem appears when copy from bypass, clean the bypass feed roller.

Hope that something of these helps you!

Paper jams at the fusing unit on my Sharp AR 275

Very common problem in that copier. The fuser unit has little pawls which seperate the paper from the rollers, they can become dislodged when customers remove jams. Another very common problem is the gear that turns those rollers wears down internallly, to check this make a mark on the orange fuser roller with a sharpie. See if the mark moves from it's previous spot after trying to make a copy. These rollers turn every time the machine is used or is turned on.

Paper jam problam

no the tefflon is not fitted properly as you again open the printer and clean the tefflons upper side as any of the greece substance is got stuck up on the tefflon to cause this problem.also clean the pressor roller of orange/red colour with the isoprophyl and then slowly rub the liquid with very dry tissue.your pressure roller is perfectly alright as this paper jam problem comes very often after the tefflon is changed if it is not fitted and cleaned properly.

Printer malfunction

The samsung printer have three paper jam sensors. First (paper jam 0) after the feed rollers. Second (paper jam 1) at the left of the feed rollers and third (paper jam 2) at the fuser unit where it is hot. You can see the actuator between the two white rollers. Paper jam 2 is mainly cause by the scrappers out of position on the side of the upper heat rollers.You will have to clean it and put it back into position.
