What is a PF kit


This is a "Paper Feed" kit and comprises several small pieces including rollers, springs and friction separator pad. Some models have several of these and will be named "PF1 kit", "PF2 kit" etc normally one for the manual feed tray and one for the paper drawer.
If you look at the front of the paper drawer, you will see a spring loaded friction pad in the centre used to hold back all but one sheet of paper. Directly above this in the printer chassis will be a loose rubber roller assembly which grabs the sheet of paper. together, this collection of parts is called a "PF kit".
The printer memory counts the number of pages fed and will count down an estimated useful life of these parts but this is at best a "guess". When they will no longer reliably feed fresh new paper without jamming, they probably need replacing.

Clean a KX-P7100 printer


The paper jam in theKX-P7100 is usually due to the paper tray.

If you pull the paper tray out you'll notice a black piece of plastic (located at the most front) with a cork like material in the middle. Try pushing down on this piece of plastic a few times. If it does not pop up immediately the grease that Panasonic used has become "sticky". The piece of plastic is removed by turning the tray upside down and pushing on the small plastic tabs that hold the black piece of plastic in. Be careful to not loose the spring that is located under the black piece of plastic or break the plastic tabs that hold it in place. Once you get the black piece of plastic out, clean it with que tips and clean the area it slides up and down in. Make sure to remove all the "sticky" grease. Once you get it clean, don't forget to stretch the spring to one more inch. the spring quality is awful at tensile strength. Then place the spring back in its place and push the black piece of plastic back in its place. You can add some light oil to the black plastic to make it slide better. After it is reassembled try pushing down on the black piece of plastic a few times. It should spring up almost immediately. This should take care of the jams that you are experiencing.

In addition, you may have to stretch the 2 big springs under the metal plate in the paper tray to one more inch. To access them, you'll have to unscrew the 3 philips screws under the tray (take a picture before :-)), take away the 2 blue pieces and take out the metal plate.

Now I'm able to print from the media tray without any problem :-).

Hope this helps!

Paper jams in first rollers out of paper tray one sheet will feed but several will jam


Check for wear on the first set of rollers. If they seem fine and your print settings are correct (media type and size) then you may need to replace a small part in the paper tray. When I have seen this issue previously I needed to replace a seperation pad that lifts paper up(spring loaded to raise the paper the right amount as the paper level goes down) and has a rubber pad on top, when the rubber pad gets worn and it no longer 'holds' the bottom sheets that are not supposed to feed.You can get these from brother directly or from service centers/retailers. The part you need is the paper feeding kit, part no. LM6291001 and it looks like this!

IAM USING HP DESK JET F2100 PRINTER MY PAPEROUT LED IS ALWAYS BLINKING AND NOT PRINTING


Possibly it either does not have enough paper in the tray - some printers require about half an inch of paper to work. Sometimes also the switch or feed on the paper try gets stuck, look inside to be sure the paper can feed properly onto the rollers, some printers have sort of a plastic piece that is spring loaded and moves, also look for a switch that may be stuck or if there is any tiny piece of paper that may be inside holding a switch open.

I have a Brother Intellifax 4100 Fax machine. I may have pulled the paper cathrudge out to abruptly because a 3/4 spring was dislodged from somewhere - I have not identified where it belongs. As a...


best guess is it belongs under the paper lift plate in your paper tray, remove the paper tray and all the paper, there should be a metal paper lift plate in the paper tray, these are typically spring loaded to lift the paper into place. lift the plate and check the underside for the location of the spring, there is usually a retainer of some sort to hold the spring in place. once the spring is in place the tray should feed correctly.

Hope this is of some help.

The broken part is called the bell crank arm part number 56P1228 this is very common. If the printer isn't recognising your tray, remove it and check the little plastic fingers on the left side (half way down the tray) and the metal springs in the printer (left side) which the tray pushes on to.

Printer stuck on Perfoming Self Test


Step1
If you're setting up the printer or changing the toner or ink cartridge for the first time, double-check the instructions to make sure that you installed the cartridge correctly and, for new printers, that you have removed all the pieces of cardboard or plastic packing material. 
Step
2
Check to see whether paper is feeding from the paper tray. If it's not leaving the tray at all, try feeding a page manually (if that's an option) or using a different paper tray. Sometimes a problem with the tray can be traced to a broken spring or a piece of plastic. 
Step
3
If paper is feeding from the tray but jamming in the printer, examine where the jam is occurring and then inspect the printer carefully to see if you can find what is causing the problem. A piece of paper, for instance, might be blocking the paper path. 
Step
4
If paper is feeding through the printer but coming out blank, check to see whether the printer is out of toner or ink. A defective toner or ink cartridge could be the problem.

Paper won't feed due to piece coming loose


If it is the piece I am thinking of, try replacing the spring with a modified spring from a click-top pen. Otherwise, please add a photo of the issue for better understanding

I have some GENERIC suggestions, but as I work on competitor products, I am not familar with the specfics of your machine. So this may or may not help. If something in this post doesn't match up with what you see, disregard it.

Generally speaking paper jam messages are generated because the sensors in the machine either see paper when the should not, or DON'T see paper when they should. "Ghost" jams are usually caused by two things: either the paper is not feeding properly from the paper tray or a sensor is "confused" because it is bad, broken, or covered by a small piece of paper.

If the machine indicates a jam in an area of the paper path close to the paper tray, it is likely that paper is not feeding from the tray at all. If you have an alternate paper source, such as a second tray or a bypass, try feeding from that source. If you are successful, the problem is probably misfeeds from the tray that doesn't work.

In that case, inspect the feed components in the tray (feed rolls or feed tires as the case may be). See if anything looks out of place. Sometimes feed tires can twist or slip and can be put back into the proper position. If the machine has two similar trays, you might be able to compare the two. If you can, remove the tray and see if you can locate the actuator for the paper empty switch. (It will probably be a plastic lever hanging free to ride on the top of the paper stack.) VERY CAREFULLY (you don't want to break or dislodge anything) tape the lever up in place (to fool the machine into thinking there is paper in the tray) and then inspect the feed components while you attempt to make a copy. (Be sure the tray you are watching is selected as your paper source.) If the feed components turn, you probably have to replace the rolls or tires. If not, it may be that a feed clutch or solenoid is not working.

If you cannot get a successful feed from any source, you may have a sensor problem. This might be a bad sensor, a broken actuator or a very small piece of paper stuck on a sensor. This latter problem happens when someone pulls out a jam. The paper tears on the sensor actuator and leaves a small piece in the sensor. Look around the area where the jam is indicated and see if you can find the sensor actuator. It will be a small plastic "finger" or lever (it may only be a few millimeters) typically with a small spring on it. BE CAREFUL not to dislodge or break it. See if there might be a small piece of paper (it, too, may be just a few millimeters) on it or anywherer else in the paper path. If you see something, carefully remove it with tweezers or a similar tool. Again, be very careful not to break or dislodge the actuator. If an actuator is dislodged, you may be able to pop it back in place, but if the small spring has fallen off, it might get tricky. The end result is that the actuator should move freely and spring back into place.

The truth is, unless you see something obviously out of place, or you are exceptionally mechanically inclined, it is probably best to get a service tech in. Again, these are generic tips, but I hope they give you some help. Good luck!
