I have a Xerox XD125F and all of a sudden it has began to jam at every attempt to make a copy. The paper follows the path and then folds itself in half about two inches from the top. I get the E 2 clear paper path message and I clear it just to have the problem repeat itself...? Any ideas? Thanking you in advance!

Re: Paper path jams...
The most likely problem in that is a bad fuser roller gear.
Most likely there are a couple of teeth broken off the gear.
You have to remove the back cover, which also requires the removal of 2 screws on the top of the machine.
REMOVE THE POWER FIRST.
Then there are two plugs to remove, looking on the back they are lower left. 2 white connectors
Open the right side drawer, remove 2 silver screws holding in the fuser. It will say Caution Heated Surfaces. one silver screw on each side.
Pull it straight back, slowly and examine the gear on the right side of the fuser.
You may just fine an accordion folded piece of paper in there under one of the fingers. But that gear is prone to breaking teeth off.

try to clean paper feeding rollers and chek fuser paper sensor, maybe paper comming too late...chek this just to be sure all its OK whit paper path and fuser.
...or replace fuser module!
Hello sir; Go make a copy let paper jam again, do not remove the paper, check the jamming paper area see there have any paper chip stuck in the paper path, clear it, otherwise cleanup roller with alcohal.
Well I would take a can of air and blow off the sensors, especially where you began to have problems. The sensors (over time) become coated with paper dust and now reflect back on themselves thinking there is paper there all them time. From your description of the problem, it seems like the issue-intermitten jams/intermitten false jams, until a total false jam.
PAPER JAM PROBLEM The Main PWB sensed that a paper jam exists within the paper path. E2 Status Code (Without SDF) RAP The Main PWB sensed a tray misfeed or a paper jam in the paper path. Initial Actions • Switch off the power and clear any document jam. • Check for any obstructions in the paper path. Procedure Switch on the power. Enter diagnostic code 30-1. Open then close the Fuser Gate to actuate and deactuate the Fuser Jam Sensor Q3 while observing the Paper Jam lamp. The Paper Jam lamp comes on and goes off. Y N Go toFlag 2 and check the wires for an open or short circuit. Manually actuate and deactuate the Paper Feed Sensor Q1 while observing the Toner Cartridge lamp. The Toner Cartridge lamp comes on and goes off. Y N Go to Flag 1 and check for an open circuit. Place a piece of paper above the Fuser Gate and use the Manual Exit Knob move the paper across the Exit Sensor Q4 while observing the Drum Cartridge Lamp. The Drum Cartridge lamp turns on and off. Y N Go to Flag 3 and check for an open wire. Manually actuate and deactuate Bypass Feed Sensor Q2 while observing the Auto exposure lamp. The Auto exposure LED comes on and goes off. Y N Go to Flag 4 and check for an open circuit. Press the Clear button. Enter diagnostic code 6-2. Press the Start button. The Registration Roll Solenoid can be heard switching on and switching off. Y N Press the Clear button. There is +24 VDC measured between CN103-1 and GND. Y N Replace the Main PWB PL 7.1. Go to Flag 5 and check the wires for an open circuit. If the wires are good, replace the Registration Roll Solenoid SOL3. Press the Stop button. Paper jams in the fuser. Y N Check the following: • Ensure that the paper tray guide is set to the correct width of the copy paper. • Inspect the paper path from this tray and the paper registration area for an obstruction such as a burr. • Inspect the Registration Roll, PL 5.1 and the Pinch Roll, PL 1.4 for contamination and wear. Clean (with Film Remover only) or replace as required.
This machine problem can be very involved.
A paper jam as described can be in any locations of the copier.
First of all when the toner-developer falls on the base of the paper feeder, it can contanimate all paper feed shafts and even sensors, and plug connections.
Worn feed rolls can cause the machine to jam. Clean the rollers and see if it corrects the problem.
A bent paper tray can cause the copy to skew, causing jams.
Sometimes the plasic paper path baffles are warped leaving narrow gaps in the paper feed path not allowing the paper to go through properly.
A bad paper feed sensor can cause inttermittant paper feed jams. This sensor is located just above the feed rolls. A involved process to take out without breaking the plastic components.
The machine has paper feed clutches located at the back of the feed rolls. To get to them it is also involved. Sometimes these clutches slip and will cause paper feed problems. There paper feed solinoids may operate intermittantly not allowing the paper feed clutch to operate correctly.
The main board can also cause these types of problems, not allowing the correct signal to operate the paper feed solinoids.
There is so much in this area to locate and isolate for paper feed problems.
If all else fails, call Xerox for a service repair.
Either the feed rollers are dirty or in need of replacing. Try this first. Take a piece of regular copy paper and on the front in the middle put a small amount or rubbing alcohol on it. IN the middle about 2 inches wide and 2 inched deep. Dampen the paper, do not drench it, and do NOT use a soapy cleaner since the alcohol will not shred the paper. Place that sheet into the feeder and hold the back of the paper, cause it to jam. What that will do is spin the rollers on the alcohol and paper and clean the roller surface. Keep doing that until the paper comes out clean, then allow a couple of minutes for the rollers to dry before running the machine. If that still doesn't help the rollers will need replaced. Look up, on Google , The Parts Drop, they should show up first. Call them and ask for Britt. Nope its not me and I don't work there, Just deal with them. Excellent people there. Good luck and let me know please.
