Since this problem is intermittent, it won't be a broken mechanics issue. always make sure to set the paper guides in the tray exactly to the specified paper size, but do not place them too tight around the paper, since this will result in paper mispicks or jams. if re-positioning these guides doesn't solve your problem, it's probably the paper you're using.

This should help. Good luck !

Cassette (Tray 2) paper pickup and feed rollers

To remove the paper pickup and feed rollers

1 Remove the cassette.

2 Locate the two rollers on the bottom of the paper pickup unit (above the cassette). The pickup

roller is the smaller roller, and the feed roller is the larger roller.

3 Pinch the tab on the end of the cassette pickup roller (callout 1), and pull the roller out.

4 Pinch the tab on the end of the cassette feed roller (callout 2), and pull the roller out.

Figure 6-24 Removing the cassette pickup and feed rollers

Note Always replace the cassette pickup roller and the cassette feed rollers at the same time. Also replace
the separation roller (located in the paper cassette) when replacing these rollers

What are feed rollers and pads


Feed rollers are the rubber tires in your printer that pick up paper. They spin in the direction of the paper movement. They wear out over time due to use, and will need to be replaced. Pads are usually used for seperation and can be a flat peice or a round roller. They sit under the pickup roller and stop more than one piece of paper from being fed.

The samsung ml 2250 printer doesnt pick up the paper out of the paper cassette. It works someteiimes but mainly the paper is not picked up at all and you hear the noise like it wants to pick it up but cant...


Hi there,Don't think its the clutch. I would rather say its more a problem of the paper not getting pushed up against the pickup rollers so you could try stretching the spring a bit and see if it helps.. What you also could try is removing the tray and bypass the paper sensor and see if when you print the pickup roller does turn.

Printer does not attempt to pick up paper but gives out of paper message and or flashing paper sign on panel


steps:
(a) driving a pickup roller, picking up printing paper stacked in a paper cassette, and then, feeding the picked up printing paper to an image forming unit
(b) after picking up the printing paper in step (a), checking to determine whether or not the printing paper has been fed to the image forming unit(c) when it has been determined in step (b) that the printing paper has not been fed and a paper feed error has been generated, again driving the pickup roller, so as to attempt to pick up the printing paper stacked in the paper cassette again.

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

We need to the model/make to help you


but using some detective skills I've decided you are using a HP machine

Yup Dirty damaged worn feed roller but what model machine is it they are all different but pull out tray 2 cassette all the way and look in, there is probally a cylinder like rubber roller 5cm wide front centre of where cassette slides in, there might be roller on the cassette too at the front center as well.

Most modern printers feed rollers just slide off after lifting small plastic tabs on them and gently pulling, feed rollers are available but you can sometimes also get results by cleaning them with a dash of metho or water on a rag.

If paper feeds 2wo sheets at once then you need to change the seperation pad/roller too.

Why is the printer grabbing more than one sheet at a time?


this is caused due to the pickup rollers and seperation pads being worn. if you run your fingers across them you will no dobt find that they are very smooth and thats the problem. the rollers and pads need to be rough so that they can cause friction against eachother to seperate the pages. i


What make model is it and i will try source the part numbers for you


Hope this helps
