    Bingo!!!!

    Thanks for the super fast and super accurate diagnosis. The gear, which is black and on the end of the long grey roller, has partially disintegrated with most of it still in place. I would very much appreciate if you could let me know where to find the replacement.



    Thanks again

If it is making it to that final roller area, the fuser gear is broken.
I would almost bet my house that if you look toward the back of the machine, you will find the gear laying in the bottom of the machine in 3 or 4 pieces.
I am assuming some things here.
1 is that the paper is not damaged, and you are talking that it has just entered the heat roller area.
Easy gear to replace, it is on the back of the fuser assembly, you can locate it, by going all the way to the inside ( back) of that fuser assembly. CAREFUL it will be hot if the machine is on, And on the upper roller, normally gray, it should be on the back side.
Let me know if it's a problem I can give you a place to call and order it. If I rememeber correctly it is in the $15 range.

Xerox XC830, flashing 'P'


I have used this tip numerous times with great success.
Remove the paper tray and take all the paper out of the tray. Now on the metal plate that springs up where the paper goes there are 2 fiber pads that are about an inch square. Spray these 2 pads with glass cleaner until they are wet. Wipe off the metal around the pads and re-install the paper tray with NO paper in the tray. Now tray and make a copy....you will of course get the "P" light. Just hit C to clear it and hit the print button again. Do this at least 4 or 5 times. What you are doing here is cleaning the feed rollers by having them turn against the pads with the cleaner on them. Next take out the tray, blot the pads somewhat dry and add paper to the tray, re-install the tray and try copying again.
Should feed paper now unless you have a mechanical issue.
Good Luck.

You should first have a check over the roller . Mostly the problem will be the roller only .

But let me know how old is your copier ?

Depending on it we can solve your problem .

I have a xerox phaser 3124 which have a paper jam every time when i try to print stuffs.. it gets jam halfway and the catridge is new.


Xerox printers have known issues with the rollers. You may want to look into getting some new rollers, they're not that expensive. I think with this model there's one in the tray, and one up above where the paper enters the printer.

Frequent paper jams on a Dell 1600n AIO, sometimes doesn't grab the paper from the tray (not really a jam, just need to open and close tray), sometimes gets caught halfway through the path -- need to open...


This could be caused from the papers you use at times(weight). Call on a Dell representative to check it out for you if you bought it from a Dell shop.

Thanks

Paper pulls to the right, jams, won't print, tried different paper still won't print


Hi,
Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry.
Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print.
Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job.
Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..

Hope that helps!

Hi,
Sounds like the feed rollers need cleaning.
Clean the feed rollers, lint free cloth,bottled water.
wait for them to properly dry

Revolve the feed roller bar as you clean them, to clean the feed rollers all the way round, remove all particles from them.

Check you ADF grips are set correctly, if not you will get mis-fed sheets. check the tray is sat properly too or mis-feeds.

Check paper size is correct in print properties too.
Should be good then
Try print.

Regards
Richard.

Xerox XC830 Copier--Paper jams as it is leaving the copier


Inside the copier on the rear side where the gears are you'll find the gear on the fixing roller is broken. You can call Sharp instead of Xerox because there are usually cheaper. The supplies are not interchangeable, but the parts are.
Good luck

HP paper jam


That is usually caused by the paper feed rollers being cover with paper dust. Take a clean cotton pad and alcohol and clean the rollers :turninig each roller as you clean it. if it has a rear dor, open it to get better access to the rollers.
