The peice your looking to replace sounds like the input paper senor arm. The part is still available for purchase however can be a real bare for the novice to install. The part number is RF5-0601-000CN. The part is available Seattle Platen. Ask for Dale - 888-682-7780. Here's a crude scan of the service manual if you wish to repair the printer on your own. You will be pulling the cover, side motherboard, main base pan and power supply board to get to the flag. Not an easy job but it can be done if your careful.

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!

HP 4L printer indicates no paper when the tray has


When you removed the paper jam, was the paper torn? If so, did you ensure that you found all the pieces. (Put the piece of paper back together like a puzzle to verify). There could be a piece of paper stuck in the printer that is causing the paper sensor to fail.
The other possibility is that when you removed the paper jam, something became dislodged in the printer. Forcefully removing paper from the printer can cause this.

Upper Paper Tray light flashing as if not all the way when it is.


Remove the paper tray.

On the right side you will see Three (3) holes
the plastic piece you found when in the bottom hole.

Since it is broken it will no longer snap into place.

Make your self fom either plastic or cardboard, a piece that will cover the bottom hole but not so big that it will block the hole above it.

Then using a good stiff tape (eloectical or duck) paste the piece over the hole, making sure you don't block the hole above it, or any other part of the machine.

I have taken a plastic knife cut to size and superglued it in.

If all else fails you can order that plastic piece that broke from Xerox. It's called a paper size sensor. about $5.00 for the part and about $10.00 for shipping.

Good luck

Don't forget to put all pieces back in place before using printer.

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.

check the tray for a special piece of plastic that, when rotated or adjusted some other way, confirms the tray is holding what paper size and orientation. I know HP used this on older lasers.
