FYI... The copier will show a jam for 3 reasons. 1 Paper never got to the sensor, 2 Sensor sees paper there all the time or 3 Paper doesn't arrive at the right time. Alot of times paper feed rollers are dirty or worn, often ignored and overlooked, and these will give intermittant jams that show up anywhere in the paper path, often looking like a differant problem. Sometimes sensors are dirty with paper dust and will show a jam when there isn't one, in which case a can of compressed air is good to blow them out. Question, is this jamming out of all drawers and bypass or just one drawer. This would help in eliminating possibilities. Good luck, let me know if you have more questions. Please rate this. Thanks

Engine noise and rpms going down

Does the engine light come on during this failure? If it does, please have the codes read and forward them back to me. From your symptoms, it sounds like a mechanical failure. I would inspect the TAC (throttle actuating control) valve. and the throttle pedal, to start? You can look at it physically, inspect the wiring, condition, and operation. If you can get a friend to help. remove the air inlet tube, look at the butterfly inside the TAC unit. Have your friend turn the ignition key to run (DO NOT START THE ENGINE) and watch the butterfly respond as he or she applies and releases the throttle pedal(request to your helper, to communicate how far the pedal is going down and coming back). The motion of the pedal and the butterfly should be smooth and consistent. Would you tell me how often these symptoms occur and does it happen when the engine is cold, hot, or any temperature. Write back with any additional information or questions, good luck.

As an alternative, you can try making a new Time Machine backup from the files of the old HDD. Install Mavericks from scratch on the SSD and then transfer the documents needed back from the Time Machine.

I would recommend installing fresh OS X when upgrading from HDD to SSD anyway.

Here is how to make a bootable USB stick for installing Mavericks:

I have a konica 2400 w magic color. error message paper jam when no paper jam

Hi Camru, I wondering if the jam light is on at power up before data is sent to your machine or if it occurs after a print job is sent to it?

If it is on constant ie before a print is sent to it, then we have a sensor or paper detect switch activated. If this is the case then it can be a piece of paper or a remaining fragment of paper holding down the switch or the switch arm itself is broken or its corresponding light sencing photocell is covered in toner/dust.

In Printers there are a number of these sensors in the paper path, generally we have one that detects paper at cassette and bypass position, another at registration roller another at fuser exit, the machine monitiors these switchs for activation to tell if a jam is present. These switchs are tiny plastic arms that get pushed down when paper passes them which in turn blocks the photocell sencing light. One normally finds fragments of paper sticking the arm down, or the arm broken, most of the time the printer also tells us jam position so we know which switch it is seeing a jam condition at. Check the switch operation by looking for them, and ensuring the arm is moving freely.

The other possibility is the machine with no data present shows no error but a error occurs when a print job is sent to it. If this is the case it is caused usally by incorrect paper size settings in printer paper size menu or the printer drivers paper size settings on installed driver in printers under control panel of computer, It can also be caused if the paper is feeding multi sheets from cassete due to dirty rubber rollers in printer itself or not picking paper from tray at all as the feed roller is slipping on paper in tray due to losing its grippyness.

I clean feed rollers with water, just slightly damp rag and rub the rubber surface of the feed roller, sometimes they are so worn they need replacing, I will post a pic for you and also here is the service manual of a machine pretty much the same as yours.

This is another uses post on how he fixed his, please note this will be the same as yours only if jam only occurs after data is sent to your machine.

Display says line error and print out says jam

• Check the connection. The cord from the TEL.LINE jack to the wall jack should be no longer than
six feet.
• Make sure there are no modem devices sharing the same telephone line.
• Check with the other party to make sure their fax machine is functioning properly.
• Have your telephone line checked for line noise.
• Try connecting the fax machine to a different telephone line.
• If the problem still occurs, your fax machine may need service.

Total elevation gain consistently way too high (20+ percent)

I have the same garmin, and have the same problem.
The high changes even during flat runs so when added you have this overamount of climbing.
I just reduce the points of the track and then the addition is more accurate.
My problem now is that the GPS stops working during runs (turns itself off). Awful!!!

Paper jam light flashes but no paper is jammed. I turned some gears and after a while it started to work. After one try, it did not copy and the light started flashing again.

There are four things I would check first. All depends on what was happening when the problem occurred. 1) If there was a paper jam to begin with, check to make sure all the paper came out and didn't tear. The two areas to check are in the transfer area below the cartridge and at the fuser area. 2) At these same two areas check the (usually black) plastic paw and make sure it isn't broken and functioning properly. 3)Paper/paper dust can accumulate around the photo interrupter and cause mis reads for paper jams. Again this is in the same area. 4) If the paper feeds out of the cassette about in inch and then jams for no apparent reason, it is usually caused from dirty/worn pick up tires. If this is a symptom I would clean the pick ups with alcohol. Hope this helps
