    The model is The Xerox WorkCenter XD 103f.

    The paper clears through the bottom tray, makes half a copy, and gets stuck or jams as it tries to enter the upper chamber. It folds like a clothes at that stage of final entry. The copier automatically stops, and starts blinking greenish light 2&E alternately, and red sign to indicate jammed paper. I hope this will help.

    After I removed the fuser, I can rotate the end gear forth and back, proving that the gear is stripped. I also marked the roller as you suggested, but the mark never moved, again proving that the gear is not moving the roller. I am searching for a replcement fuser with good gear system. Hopefully, that will solve my problem. Any suggestion on where to get a good used fuser for the copier? The Xerox WorkCenter XD 103f.

    Thanks a bunch for your help. Keep up the good work.

    I installed new fuser roll drive gear as suggested. I turned the copier on only to witness another problem. The copier started flashing H and 4 alternatively. I am experiencing a total short down and the copier is not responding to any control. No power to the start botton. What can I do to fix it?

I think we need a bit more make , model, where is the misfeed or jam (they are different) over to you

    if you are pulling sheets out with unfused copies (they wipe off) there's a good chance that the fuser roll drive gear has cracked-- unless you have some sort of obstruction in the paper path, difficult to see from here. If you can see the heat roll, put a mark on it with a felt tip or similar, run a copy and see if the mark has moved, if not the fuser has not driven.It's not foolproof because the roll can be moved by the paper.If, on the other hand the copy gets,say, halfway through the fuser, you probably have a sensor stuck

    Don't go spending your money on a new fuser, quite often the gear is available as a spare part very cheap...go to your dealer if you can $7 should cover it

What is causing misfeeding?

Either the paper is slipping and not reaching the sensors at the right time. or a sensor flag is broken/missing/out/stuck and the device stops the paper thinking there's a jam. Clean all the paper feed rollers with a clean lint-free towel and water only. See if that will improve the grip of the rollers. If they appear shiny, replace the rollers. They are too worn out to continue working properly.

Paper misfeeds inside the printer

I followed the advice of one of the posters by removing the paper and putting through a sheet of photo paper through the copier. When I noticed that the blockage was a small pebble-ish object, I poked at it with a long knife and then the photo paper helped to push it through. That did the trick!

Paper jam

What that sounds like is misfeeding.
Remove your paper tray and take a soapy cleaner, like formula 109 or fantastic and thoroughly clean the rollers.
If that helps and it statrs misfeeding in a day or two, you probably have slick rollers.
Watch inside the paper feed. Make sure the paper is going against the rollers then see if they just spin on the paper.
