Feeder problem the feeder starts to have problem lifting the page recently. instead it will spit the page out of the feeder, causing an error msg on the screen. to manually solve the problem, i have to use my thumb or finger to push at the edge of the paper stack, so that the paper can't be spit out in that direction.

Re: feeder problem

The same thing has been happening to me. I believe that as the machine gets older, soft plastic parts get hard. Your problem is that the soft rubber part that rotates down and picks up the paper has gotten a bit hard. It won't pick up the paper as well as a new soft part. Just look into the back of the feed tray when you print a page. You'll see a sort 1/2 wheel rotate down and try to pull the paper up. What I did to improve the traction of the plastic was roughen it up with some medium grit (150) sandpaper. You can easily remove the front cover by first opening the cover, pull out the cartridge, press in on the side of the cover where it rotates in the printer's body, slide it out. You'll see the 1/2 wheel clearly now - it has horizontal ridges. Use your sandpaper lightly in the direction of the ridges - horizontal. Then, blow out the dust. Put your front cover back on, put in the cartridge and voila - it'll work. Atleast mine has been working fine. This sort of fix works on rubber contact wheels (in a VCR or cassette deck) for a while, but eventually the hardened part will need to be replaced. But see how it works for you. Best of luck.

The sensor may be dirty even if it looks like there is no paper jam. Take a bottle of compressed air and give it a once over. Make sure you don't shake or tip the compressed air as you don't want to fast freeze anything.
If this does nothing, you probably have a failed sensor which will need replacing.

I am using the SCX-4828FN printer. When I am scanning pages from the feeder, not the glass, I am getting a long back line down the page. I have looked for dirt in there but cant see any, actually having...

I dont think you need to open the feeder but usually it opens up by lifting upwards where the paper goes in. It usually needs a bit of pressure to open.
You will see a small piece of glass going across the machine either in the feeder or at the end of the large plate glass when lifting the whole document feeder.
On this glass there will be a mark that needs to be cleaned off. Look closely as sometimes the mark is hard to see. It is commonly caused by using whiteout.

Blank line down left side of outgoing fax or feeder copy

The most common cause of blank (void) lines on a scanned document is from whiteout on the glass where the page is scanned when using the document feeder.
If there is a clear mylar sheet on the bottom of the document feeder, the whiteout may be there instead.

If there was dirt or a dark smudge on the glass (or mylar), it would show up as a black line, but whiteout is white, and shows up as a void (blank) line.

Lines on Outgoing Faxes and Copies from Feeder Is there a way to clean the doc feeder scanner? I have a big line going down the center of the page when I copy or fax from there. Thanks!


If you lift the top of the unit so that you can see the scanner glass and clean the surface on the left side and the very end of the scanner you should be ok. The sheet feeder runs the pages through the feeder and down to the glass at the end then back to the feeder and out to the stack of pages. If you try to scan anything with wet ink, highlighter, marker, etc some may come off on the glass and cause the lines to appear. Just use windows on a paper towel, not sprayed on the unit.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Dcp 8045D laser printer error say doc cover open, I don't no what is a doc cover, and the manule the machine came with can't be found

The document cover (or lid) is the large part that you pull up (open) when you want to scan a single page using the "flatbed" part of the scanner instead of the automatic document feeder (AFD).

There may be something under the lid that is holding it up slightly open.

Lift the lid and close it...
It should work, now.

If NOT, Turn OFF, unplug from outlet, wait a few minutes and plug back in.

Hope this helps!

Auto Feed doesn't work. When I press the start button I get an error to open the copier and remove the paper. There is no paper above the glass. The symbols showing are LIFT and PAPER JAM.

There is a mircoswitch which may become slightly bent. The microswitch rides on the left hindge of the feeder inside the covers. When the start button is pressed the feeder may move upward slightly causing the miroswitch to loose contact with the hinge. You can usually reform the arm of the switch and make it work.

Feeder Issue

Open up the feeder, remove the two large chrome screws holding the beige cover and lift off. make sure nothing is blocking the rollers or switches. Further disassembly requires a Kyocera or Copystar technician.

Kyocera 3900 dn, is there a way to speed it up?

1.install the latest print driver; see if the rip/spool time is long or the printing time is long. The rip time depends by your computer (!) and the print driver (disable the collate option when printing multiple copies of 1 page = on the printer you should see 1/5 spit a page then 2/5 and spit another page for 5 copies of same page. If you see processing the spit the page then processing and spit the page means your computer is sending 5 times the same page instead of sending once and ask for 5 copies !!! )
2.use network connection instead the USB.
3.expand the printer memory
4.switch the printer from PCL to KPDL or Auto when printing pdf files.

My Canon MF3240 picks up too much paper and causes a paper jam every time I print.

If the automatic document feeder picks up multiple pages instead of single sheets, the separator pad inside the automatic document feeder needs to be cleaned.

Canon pc980 dF error

Page 62 of PS980 manual shows how to get rid of the dF error, and it worked for me just now. If you can't see any paper causing a jam, there could be a small piece of paper above the white feeding belt. 1) turn off copier, lift lid, and gently pull the feeding belt. If nothing falls out and you still get the error, 2) insert a postcard to the left of the feeding belt and wiggle vertically and horizontally. To my surprise, a small piece of paper I had copied and forgotten about emerged on top of the copier lid!
