Martin Yale Paper Folder Problem

I have a Martin Yale paper folding machine (model # P7200) that is crinkling paper as it goes through the rollers. Some come out fine but about 25% come out severely mis-folded (the folds aren't equidistant or straight) and mangled (paper has creases where there should be none). About another 25% come out just mangled. I have tried adjusting the folder guides but this seems to be a problem with the intake guides or the rollers (?).

Can anyone help?

Thanks!

    I am almost having the same problem. About 25% of the sheets come through with crinkled lines, but the rest are just fine. This is out of a stack put in the folder. I don't get any misaligned or mangled pages, just 1 or 2 crinkle streaks through the folded booklet. Using Half fold.

Having same problem with double-folded (trifold) A4 sheets on a new P7400 folder that has only folded a total of around 1,400 copies. The final fold comes out crinkled and are unusable. It will fold non-printed paper quite well, and the printer I'm using is a high quality Kyocera laser printer, so obviously associated with printed paper. I found there was considerable rubber debris which I've cleaned away, but still having same problems. Company from whom I purchased the machine is accepting it back, but only to sent it to manufacturer for repairs - that could take forever and a day. Sorry but I don't have a fix, but thought it worth reporting that I'm also having problems. Good luck.

TRY PUTTING A PENCIL ON EACH SIDE OF THE ADJUSTMENT BARS, THEN TAPE THEM SO THAT THEY DON'T MOVE. THIS WORKED FOR ME FOR A WHILE, BUT EVENTUALLY, I HAD OTHER PROBLEMS. THE ROLLER WILL NOT TAKE THE PAPER IN MANAULLY, SO I HAVE TO HELP IT ALONG. i'M GOING TO TRY CLEANING THEM TO SEE IF IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE. BUT THE PENCILS SEEM TO MAKE THE PERFECT ADJUSTMENT FOR AN 8 1/2 X 11" PIECE OF PAPER TO GO THROUGH WITHOUT CRINKLING. GOOD LUCK.

If the fold plates are set correctly then it may be a skew adjustment (if such a small machine has one) or worn feed rollers. However, you may want to first look for toner built up on interior surfaces especially any rollers.

Im not familiar with a paper folder but if its anything like a printer, it probably has a maintenance kit you can buy or you may have to replace the rollers. Alot of the times they have a rubber grabber that wears out or a roller that gets dirty and doesnt catch the paper evenly and pulls it through at an angle, crinkling it. Check for debree or paper particles that may be floating around inside.

Paper jam in HP photosmart A616. Can see it but can't pull it out as it is too thin and crinkled.


Take a sheet of paper and fold it in two so the top and bottom of the paper meet. Put the folded end of the paper in the printer so it can push the jam through. There are cleaning sheets you can get at office supply stores that are sticky on both sides. They work well getting small pieces of paper out as well as cleaning built up paper dust from the rollers.

The paper does not feed correctly so that the paper goes into the machine crooked causing a paper jam.


When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

When printing paper comes out all "crinkled" maybe roller problem?


It the paper comes out crinkled or accordion looking then it is your fuser. Check where your the paper comes out of. There might be a piece of paper jammed in there that is causing this. If no obstuctions then it might be the roller on the fuser cracking and cause it to crinkle the paper. The fuser is the last thing the paper goes through before coming out. It "fuses" the toner to the paper.

HP Laserjet 4M makes accordion folds in the paper before jamming


I have found that with laser printers that have an occasional "crinkle" problem that "fanning" the paper does alleviate the problem ... but it will not if there is an actual feed/hardware problem with the rollers

Paper feeder jams and crinkles the paper up


there is a set of stripper fingers that kiss the fuser roller and paper is jamming up aginst that area

FIX

Open the fuser section door and front door Look at the fuser roller from exit and front door If there is a wiper pad (slides in on a rod from the side of the machine) remove it and put some fuser oil on it

go to area where you find the paper folding up and observe the stripper fingers for any blockage

If there is some bits of toner on the fingers clean them with a q tip and alcohol

take your finger ( make sure machine has cooled and you have unplugged from wall) and press up against the stripper fingers to se if there is movement (some coiers have a solenoid that activates the striper fingers)

The fuser oil hels keep the fuser roller clean and keeps paper from sticking on rollers

Try the copier if this does not fix i believe you have a problem with a solenoid which will require a sevice call

If you want to observe the paper coming through the fuser rollers and seeing if the fingers activate
ou can trip the safety swithes in the doors and exits and observe

Best of luck to you

Although you did not mention the model of the machine, it sounds like you have a torn fuser film. Needs the fuser rebuilt or replaced.

Lexmark x1240 printer / scanner


I don't have a 1240 printer but we have had this problem. Usually we just align the paper and there is usually a movable piece that keeps the printer snug and aligned. Usually we move it right at the edge of the paper. This usually prevents the paper from crinkling. If this doesn't work I would guess that one of the rollers is not working. But my guess is more of the paper guide that you need to move so that the paper stays aligned when it goes in. Let me know if this helps.

Crinkled paper


It sounds like a fuser problem. You may have something stuck in it, or the lower roller could be defective. You may have to replace the fuser.
