Re: paper feedin

The price of labor and repair parts could exceed the cost of a new printer in some cases. This most likely wouldn't be something you might be able to repair yourself. I would call the authorized repair center in your area and ask about a quote on what it might cost to repair this printer.

How do i set it to print 11x17. It jams everytime and will not print to that size

Hello :-)
Please open the paper supply tray you wish to use. At the very front of the tray, to the right, you will see a blue dial. This dial is used to tell the copier what size paper it can expect to be fed. You can put many sizes of paper in the tray, but the blue dial MUST match the size that truly is in the tray. If ,for example, the blue dial is set at "LETTER" but the paper in the tray is 11x17, the copier will look at the dial setting and expect the paper to have passed its paper path sensors in a certain amount of time. So if the dial says 8.5x11 and the actual sheet of paper fed just keeps on moving by the sensors (11x17) the copier freaks and treats it as a paper jam assuming it has fed multiple sheets. Happy New Year to you and yours! :-)

My printer c5280 keeps saying please reinsert or lower photo tray

If it is asking for photo paper you should be able to hit ok on the screen and then it should go to the default screen and be ready to print.

Change your Paper type in the Paper Handling Menu. Is paper fed from tray 2 or tray 1? Either setting, the paper type can be changed using the control panel. Press the green button to enter the menus, then using the "down" arrow button, press until you notice the "Paper Handling Menu". You can change the setting from Rough Paper to Plain. I hope this helps.

How to use

Does the copier have a duplexer? Automatic 2-sided copying (duplexing) was an optional feature for the EP2030. If there is a drawer in the lower section of the copier labeled "duplex" then your unit has this feature.

To use it, simply select 1>2 (for single-sided originals) or 2>2 (for 2-sided originals) on the "Orig>Copy" section of the control panel (toward the left side).

If your copier is not equipped with a duplexer, the only way you can make 2-sided copies is to copy the first side and then load the copies back into the paper tray or the manual bypass on the right side of the unit.

Note the the copier copies on the bottom side of paper fed from the paper trays, and the top side of paper fed from the manual bypass.

You can download a .pdf file of an operator's manual for this copier from the Konica Minolta website.

Switch the way the paper comes out of the machine

Sounds like your tray settings are incorrect. Make sure that if the tray is set to 8 1/2 X 11 in the menu settings(not 8 1/2 X 11R) that the paper is set in the tray to feed the long edge first. The machine is capable of automatically rotating the image to fit the paper as long as the paper is set correctly.
If you prefer to feed short edge first then set it for 8 1/2 X 11R.

No paper fed

Pull the paper tray out, then turn the printer on it's side. There is a mechanisim that has some rubber band type grips that pick the paper up. Pull them off, turn them inside out and put them back on. Give it another try.
