I think the plastic broke that held the spring, so you need to figure out where it broke and drill a new hole for the spring, and sounds like you need a new cartridge, GOOD LUCK!!!

I have an imagerunner 2800 and it only seems to jam in the tray loading area, just bends the long side of the paper randomly. It changes it's performance just like the weather, sometimes I can get multiple...

A couple of things to consider:
Do not load the following types of paper in the paper drawer. Doing so may cause a paper jam.
- Severely curled or wrinkled paper
- Heavyweight paper
- Transparencies
- Paper on which color images have been copied.
- Paper which has been copied on using a digital full color copier (do not copy on the reverse side
- Paper which has been printed on using a thermal transfer printer (do not copy on the reverse side

Also, what # paper are you using?

I have a Canon PC 980 B&W copier. When I try to print, the "P" (no paper) light comes on, even thoug the paper tray is full.n

YOur problem is likely worn feed rubber. It is an old machine. Has it ever been serviced?
Did this happen after a paper jam?
Try this: UNPLUG the copier Take out the paper tray. Prepare a dry cloth that is dampened with WD 40. Open the door on the right side of the coper. You should see 1 large, gray or black rubber roller. Gently wipe the roller with the WD 40 cloth, slowly turning the roller. It only turns 1 way, towards the exit direction of the paper from the copier.

Let the WD 40 soak in, about 10 minutes. Put the paper tray back in, plug the copier back in and try to make a copy. If it makes a copy, the feed roller needs replaced, If it doesn't make a copy, check the top sheet of paper in the tray. If you see skid marks, you definitely need a feed roller. No, they are not easy to change.

As long as the roller feeds, go for it. When it starts slipping then you'll have to do something about that feed roller.

Canon pc 420 paper feeds only part way

I had the same problem. I found a parts diagram here which showed that the springs hold the bar down. On mine, on each side, one of the spring tabs was broken.

I made a metal pin for one side and insert a screw on the other. Be sure and wrap the spring over the nylon bushing.

Lines repeating on copied paper from Canon PC 745 copier.

You probably have a piece of paper wrapped on your pressure cleaning roller inside the fuser. The patterm on the paper is the same and the spacing is equal and it is in the direction or feed.

Canon pc 430 feeder problem

You may have to fabricate a new anchor for one end of the spring on the side opposite the control panel. There is a wimpy plastic tab that breaks off here, right next to a black Phillips-head screw. Remove this screw and bend a piece of light wire around it, leaving a small hooked end sticking out for the spring to fasten on to. Replace the screw and install the spring. When you install the spring, it must go over the top of the tiny white plastic wheel, in the U-shaped groove.

This is how I repaired my PC430 several years ago and it's still working fine.
