Actually, when you get more than one paper feeding in at a time, it is almost always the separation pad being worn down. Go here to buy a new sep. pad and tell them Ken from National Cartridge Co. sent you there!
Ok,the problem normaly with this model is in the feeding of the paper.For some or other reason the paper is moving to slow threw the machine and then the machine detect it as a longer size paper.
Clean the rollers that pick the paper up and clean also the sepatation rubbers under neath the paper pick up rollers.This rubbers is called the separation pads.
To clean this rollers,remove the cartridge and you will see the feed roller at the back.
I think what happened with the move the machine might collected dust and now the rollers are slipping.
Clean the rubber feed rollers and the separator under them (the area below the feed roller that is supposed to hold the next page in place when the top one is fed. Sometimes the roller is on the bottom, and separator on the top, depends on model. Use a lint-free cloth dampened with isopropyl alcohol or at least dampened really sparringly with water + washing-up detergent.
When you hear the fax signal press the start button on your machine. If this does not work attempt to just make a copy of a document without sending to test the document feeder - help the document by gently pushing the document into the machine when it should be feeding. If you can feel the machine trying to grab it but it doesn't have enough strentgh or it will feed with your help then the feed rollers are probably dirty and you may be able to open up the top cover and clean the rubber rollers with alcohol or degreaser. If the feed rollers do not even turn when trying to make a copy then you may have a motor, belt or clutch problem. If it copies well but will not send, then you will probably have a modem or fax lead problem. Try a new fax lead.
This is caused by the feed and separator rollers are dirty or worn out. The simplest thing to try is to clean the feed rollers. you will need a cleaning solution, isopropal alcohol works very well. Available at local drugstores. you can approach this one of two ways, you can open up the document feed section and manually clean the rollers or put a few drops of Alcohol in the center of a piece of paper let it soak in a little and pass it through the document feeder, the paper should have a streak on the last half of the page if it made contact with the rollers. For best results do this a couple of times, for better results do both the manual and the pass paper methods.
You need to clean the friction pad. If you open the part where you put your sheets in to send faxes you will see a white pad behind the cover. You need to clean it, if it still feeds more than one page the pad is probably worn.
most likely the seperation pad has worn out and possibly the roller parts sould be still avalible for this model. besides replaces the worn parts in the machine there is no quick fix besides cleaning the rollers and the seperation pads in the machine with a damp soapy cloth with like dish soap and wiping dry with another cloth it might work better for alittle longer or till you get replacement parts.
I don't know any specific info related to the panasonic fax, but here is some "general" information that is usually universal. The fact that the paper feeds "with some help" indicates that everything is working... just not as well as it should.
Very often, a problem like yours can be rectified by simply cleaning the original take-up/in rollers with some alchohol (I usually use 90%+ rubbing alchohol as it evaporates quickly and leaves little, if any, residue) on a rag. Also, there is usually some sort of "pressure pad/roller" (sometimes called a retard pad/roller") on these types of machines that work in conjunction with the primary original paper take-up roller. It can be either dirty or worn as well. This should also be cleaned. If it's a pad type system, often it just clicks/clips into place, and can be removed, the rubber pad itself flipped over in the retainer, re-installed, and the "un-worn" side then faces the paper offering better pressure for feed, and preventing multiple page feed. Hope this helps.
