Copy will not make when paper feeding from the tray.

    The tray is filled with paper but the pickup roller will not pull the paper out of the tray. However, if I place an original on the glass and put paper in the manual feed tray it copies fine. I wonder if there is a problem with the roller sensor or if there could be some other issue that causes it to perform this way

    I opened the case and removed the idler roller so I could see the pickup rooler clearly. I manually turned it and the paper fed fine. Is there a sensor or a roller motor that could have failed?

I have a Canon PC 980 B&W copier. When I try to print, the "P" (no paper) light comes on, even thoug the paper tray is full.n


YOur problem is likely worn feed rubber. It is an old machine. Has it ever been serviced?
Did this happen after a paper jam?
Try this: UNPLUG the copier Take out the paper tray. Prepare a dry cloth that is dampened with WD 40. Open the door on the right side of the coper. You should see 1 large, gray or black rubber roller. Gently wipe the roller with the WD 40 cloth, slowly turning the roller. It only turns 1 way, towards the exit direction of the paper from the copier.

Let the WD 40 soak in, about 10 minutes. Put the paper tray back in, plug the copier back in and try to make a copy. If it makes a copy, the feed roller needs replaced, If it doesn't make a copy, check the top sheet of paper in the tray. If you see skid marks, you definitely need a feed roller. No, they are not easy to change.

As long as the roller feeds, go for it. When it starts slipping then you'll have to do something about that feed roller.

I was wondering if there is anyway that you can make double sided copies and if so how??


Only copiers fitted with a duplexing unit will automatically make a double sided copy. I assume yours does not have this accessory.
You can always make two sided copies manually. You need to first work out the paper path, so mark one piece of paper with an arrow showing the top and the direction the sheet was placed on top of the paper feed tray. Make a copy and you will now know whether the top or bottom of the paper as loaded gets printed on. Now place that sheet back in the paper feed tray again with the arrow face down in the paper tray, but still pointing in the same direction as before. Print side two and you will now have a double sided copy. If the reverse of the copy is facing the wrong way then you know that the paper needs to go into teh paper tray with the arrow facing you. Hope this makes sense, but it just needs a couple of trial runs to get to understand which was round to put the paper back in for the revers side to be printed. Always keep the final successful double sided copy, marked up for future reference, as it is so easy to forget which way to put the paper back in several weeks later.

Why the paper get stuck while copying, and the machine make a loud noise


it may be feeding from the wrong tray. i was trying to copy short paper and it was feeding from the long paper section. this caused it to stick ever time. make sure the machine is feeding from the right tray.

Paper doesn't feed from inside on XD 100 work center (10 years old, lightly used). Despite a full paper drawer, I get the "out of paper" error message.  I can copy by feeding through the back.


On this machine, the feed rollers might be worn down.
Not seeing the machine and by the description. there can also be other possible problem areas, deep in the machine itself.
Does the paper feed partially out?
If it does not, are there paper black scuff marks where the rollers were trying to feed the paper.
Can you hear the solenoids feed the paper?
If the paper does feed and seems crooked, it is possible the paper tray springs need to be stretched out just a little to push the paper tray plate more on the feed rollers.
Make sure the tray is completely up in the latched position so the feed wheels will touch the paper stack itself.
If you have a two paper tray, make sure you tell the machine what size paper you have for each tray.
Run paper in each tray.
Good luck.

Xerox XC830, flashing 'P'


I have used this tip numerous times with great success.
Remove the paper tray and take all the paper out of the tray. Now on the metal plate that springs up where the paper goes there are 2 fiber pads that are about an inch square. Spray these 2 pads with glass cleaner until they are wet. Wipe off the metal around the pads and re-install the paper tray with NO paper in the tray. Now tray and make a copy....you will of course get the "P" light. Just hit C to clear it and hit the print button again. Do this at least 4 or 5 times. What you are doing here is cleaning the feed rollers by having them turn against the pads with the cleaner on them. Next take out the tray, blot the pads somewhat dry and add paper to the tray, re-install the tray and try copying again.
Should feed paper now unless you have a mechanical issue.
Good Luck.
