Try cleaning and replace the cart and drum device. that is all it might be. But remember by fixing things for a while, we will be sitting in the past as fast as the new future flies by our door. every 3 to 5 years is a good food for thought time frame

I have a Richo 2035 black and white copier. Recently the copier has begun to paper jam...and its done frequent every time i clear the jam..it runs for a while maybe 10 copies and jams again. What can i do?


Not surprising - it may need some service. It is 7-8 years old. There are a few areas that could be affecting output. Most likely you need to replace the rollers that pick the paper out of the tray (3/drawer) -especially if the problem occurs with 1 specific tray. Try using another tray to isolate the problem

Frequent Paper Jams in Brother HL-2140


Every 120,000 pages, the paper feed rollers, fuser, transfer roller, and OPC belt cartridge should be replaced, usually by a trained techncian.
Fuser and OPC belt units are customer-replacable.

The multiple feeding of the paper into the printer is due to a worn paper separation pad. part no. LM0711001. If the machine is picking up the paper okay and the jams occur solely from multiple sheet feeding, then this part is probably all you will need. The steps required to access and remove & replace the separation pad unfortunately is about 10 steps. Better consult a tech.

Paper Jam


hi...
1)After years of heavy use the rubber rollers which transport the paper through the printer can get a shine to them and tend to loose their grip. This causes misfeeds and blockages.

Using a damp cloth and something like Jif (slightly abrasive kitchen/bathroom cleaner) rub the rollers whilst rotating them by hand. With a clean damp cloth remove any cleaner and you should see the rubber has lost it's sheen.

Some rollers can be hard to get at but a little patience pays off. I've reclaimed dozens of printers due to be scrapped in this way.

You can also try turning the printer upside down and softly tapping it. You could be surprised at what drops out. My best to date was pieces of an illegal plant substance and a rare Chinese coin. (Yes it was returned to the owner :-)


or

2)The flashing error code that indicates a jammed printer is the digital-age equivalent of a flat tire. Sooner or later it happens to everyone, so you'd better know how to get things moving again if you want to finish your print job.
1. Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.
2. Turn off the printer.
3. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.
6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A). The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam. (images 1 to 2)
7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though. (Image 3)
8. Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.

thank you

HP LaserJet 5000n - Paper jam under the cartridge


Check the tray to make sure the paper stops are set right and that the printer is set for the correct size paper. Clean the feed rollers above the paper in the tray and if necessary, replace them.

Paper jam is showing on printer info., but ther's no paper jam.


Ok this issue ussually occurs when the roller feed doesn't load the paper due to the following reasons:
1. If your printer is operating for  more than two years or so... gear tear will most likely to occur. If you can open the printer and check everytime the printer initiates after power on ad if the roller feed doesn't rotate but the leftmost rotary gear with the encoder wheel rotates, the gear is most likely to be loose even there is no paper jam nor dust contamination on the rubber and paper feed mechanism. You need to replace the said gear with the encoder strip . A simple solution would be aplying epoxy resin so it will be fixed on the rotary shaft. It may last for quite sometime but better yet replace the gear.
2. The feeder rollers might be dirty and needs to be cleaned and greased the gears.
3. Probable defective print cartridge. Try replacing it with a new one. 

But based on the items above, if your printer is operating more than a year or two, and frequent paper jam is being experienced, gear tear near the motor is the culprit.

Paper jams on the right hand sideon the last half of the sheet. the printer is clear of all paper from previous jams. The printer is an Ofice jet 6310 All-in-one


If it jams all the time, then there is a problem with the mechanic paper feed gears.

If it is an occasional paper jam, just remove the paper and restart the printer.

Give me more details for more troubleshooting.
