Re: auto paper feeder not taking paper

Try removing the paper, then removing the drum from the machine. Check to see there are no obstructions, then re-insert the drum, making sure that the gears mesh properly. Load the paper, setting the paper width guides and then try printing a report.

Check to make sure that the rollers are in good condition inside the top feeder.
Also make sure that there is NO object or anything that the paper is hitting against by manually feeding the paper and carefully observe the paper path

Fax T 104, can recieve but not send. Can hear the fax signal fro

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.

All of a sudden, faxes stop coming out and the window says something to the effect...''Place US Paper in Upper Tray''. If I turn the machine on and off, the display clears and faxes that are in memory...

The fax machine is trying to print fax recieved copies on the bypass feeder.
Check up the setup menu on the control console.
Fine fax recieve.
You should find a selection for fax recieved in which paper tray.
Check this area, any that have the bypass feeder, de-select it.
Make selections for 8 1/2 x 11 paper in tray one.

I have HP all in one. The feed for fax stopped working. how do I fix it.?

try copying blank pages. If it feeds the paper, then try faxing again. If it does not feed the paper, then open the feeder and clean the rollers and the separator pad. You can use a coffee filter moisten with distilled or bottled water to clean them.

Try copying blank pages again to check if it feeds the paper.

There are a couple of sensor flags in side the machine and also the document feeder area. Little black levers that flip and trip a sensor. Make sure they are all moving freely. There is one or two in the doc feed area. One inside the paper feed area. One or two in the ribbon area.
