Question about Lanier 1205 Copier

1 Answer

Where can I find parts for my Lanier 5613F paper tray?

It appears the paper tray is missing the part required for the "spring action" as it says push on the piece of metal where I load the paper, but it is just laying there and has no "spring action". to it. I bought this used and need the part so the paper will load correctly. Can you tell me where I can find parts?. Thanks, Mr. Birney

HP Laserjet P2035 shows paper light blinking as if out of paper. Paper tray is full. Will only take paper from manual feeder.

I have had similar symptoms: Unit won't recognize Tray 2 is full. If I hold the spring-loaded actuator with my finger, the printer will initialize as though it were detecting paper. (obviously it pitches a jam message when paper fails to feed). I've watched the pickup solenoid and it appears to be functioning correctly. I'm leaning towards it being the position of the actuator, which may be causing it to fail to push back and block the sensor. Unfortunately the manual for the P2035 doesn't have any specifics regarding this assembly, nor does it have part numbers for anything but the photosensor. Does anybody have a photo of the correct alignment of this particular part or a link to something that would be useful? To reiterate, we are talking about the spring loaded actuator directly to the right of the tray 2 pickup roller that is secured by one of the two white retaining collars. Thanks in advance for any help

If i fill the paper tray it wont grab paper. If i put 1/3 paper in tray it works fine. Seems that the paper tray lost its "spring action". the bottom plate of the paper tray remains flat.

This brother machine doesn't use a spring, the gears on the side drive the paper up and if the guide on the paper end is too tight it can't move the paper up.

Keeps saying no paper in tray although paper is in tray

I encounter that problem before, after I checked the sensors, feed unit and mechanism nothing is wrong or broken but still NO PAPER indicates on the display .I only noticed with the machine is the cassette tray or the paper tray, when you try to pullout the cassette tray and look at its left side, there is missing parts on it. There is a spring and actuator on it that will engage on the feed unit drive. Try to find the same machine and look at the cassette tray to see the missing parts on it. You can buy a new cassette because the parts that is missing maybe not available.

Brother mfc8460n message no tray. tray is in.

The sensor also has a spring to the left that enables it to go to its default location. If this spring is missing then the sensor will not detect the tray and display the "No Tray" message even though the tray is in place.

Clp 300 won't feed paper

Remove the paper tray. Gently pull the sides apart at the front end of the tray, to release the spring-loaded ramp which pushes the leading edge of the paper upwards.


Underneath this ramp are two compression springs approximately 1/2" in diameter and 2" long (above, left). The problem with the paper feed appears to be that these springs very quickly get fatigued and fail to exert enough pressure to push the tray upwards. Replace the long, thin springs with a more compact pair, with better compression, like one of the pairs on the right. I am still experimenting to find the ideal size, but this has definitely helped. Our local Ace Hardware store has a fairly good selection of compression springs. Home Depot had nothing remotely suitable.

You may find that an extra pair of hands and a pair of long-nosed pliers make the job easier when you are trying to keep the springs in position as you replace the ramp in the tray.

Lanier Printer LP131n

Don't be mad, but it never hurts to ask if you've checked the following...
  • Made sure that the printer has not been set to use legal or A4 paper in tray 1. You can set this through the options listed in the menu map on the printer display.
  • Have you checked that the Word document is not setup in the "" or in the document itself to use A4 or legal as the default paper type.
  • Is the small paper resize lever in tray 1 pushed flush against the 8.5x11 paper in the feeder so that it detects properly.
Less obvious...
  • Did you make sure that the print properties are not setup with the wrong tray configuration...i.e. listing a duplexer when one is not present, additional trays, or a feeder?
If the answer is that you have done all of this and the issue has not been resolved, I would try looking for obstruction above the primary feeder tray, in the gear assemblies in and around the bottom of the printer and the tray, or around the paper sensor. (a small plastic lever in the front of the tray.

Paper jams at pickup from tray

Hi Make sure the paper tray (cassette) is not missing the small separation pad with the spring. It is part of the paper cassette. the roller may be worn so cleaning it might not help. Lawrence

Paper will not feed

> Epson replaced the printer.

I think that you have been "unlucky" to get a replacement-printer with the same problem as the first printer. Get them to replace it, again.

Check that there is nothing "extra" inserted into the printer to stabilize the moveable parts during "shipping" -- such "padding" must be removed before using the printer.
