Brother 2820 paper feeding problem

Paper is not feeding into the machine from the rear paper input. It seems that the feeder is not grabbing the sheet at all. Of course this generates an error.
It seems like even though the paper is not feeding into the machine, the printer starts to print, then tries to advance the sheet again as it would during normal printing, and then realizes that there is no paper.
I know this is an old machine and not worth much, but if it can work correctly it has more value than it would as eco-damaging waste.
Thanks for your help.

    Ooops, this machine is actually an 1820c not a 2820. Sorry.

An easy fix would be to try to clean the paper feed rollers in the paper pick up area with a gentle cleaner like soap and water or simple green. Do not use alcohol as this will break down the rubber over time. If this doesn't work, you may have drive problem and will need to refer to a professional to resolve.

Fax machine is not pulling paper for printing.


Atypically this indicates one of three problems.
  1. the nip rollers have become oily and traction for the paper to feed does not exist
  2. the nip rollers on the paper feed spindles are worn and are not grabbing the paper.
  3. the gear teeth in the sprocket of the feed spindle are damaged (broken)
In case one some manufactures provide utility kits with paper that has a rough surface to which you can condition the rollers (kinda like a sand paper)

In case two and three (above) these items will need to be replaced. This is not a job for a novice and given the return on investment ... you may be better off buying a new machine.

Paper jam in Panasonic KX-


Your document feed is separate from your received and report prints so that's why your reports are printing ok and the document feeder jams. When you open up the doc feeder and look inside the machine you will see a roller and above it on the cover that opens you will see a rubber pad. Clean both the roller and pad (in fact anything in there that is rubber) with a rubber cleaner, alcohol, or even soap and water on a cloth without it been dripping wet. You will probablt find that they are very dirty. The roller feeds the document in so that needs to be clean and the pad helps to keep all the other docs from feeding in at the same time and that should be very clean so it produces good friction.

My fax2820 says no paper feed, but paper is in the tray


first off, make sure that the paper stop at the rear of your paper in cassette is not pressed too tightly against the paper. leave about 1/8" gap. also, might be your feed roller needs cleaned, but the first scenario is fairly common.

I have an Intellifax 2820 and there is an error message of paper jam inside... I have cleaned all paper out of machine... please help me


A jam sensor may be stuck by a paper scrap. Try manually pushing a sheet of paper through the machine IN THE DIRECTION IT IS NORMALLY FED. This may force out any stuck scraps. The jam sensors are usually located where the paper feeds and where it exits the machine. Also, make sure ALL ACCESS PANELS YOU OPENED TO CLEAR JAMS ARE CLOSED PROPERLY. Otherwise, the jam code will not clear.

Any clicking noises? Can you make a good copy? Paper seems to be dragging thru the doc feeder. Gears could be stripped, cover may not be closed tightly.

Auto feeds crooked


Are we talking about a paper feed problem from the paper cassette tray or the Auto Document feeder on the top. Either way, check the the paper width guides, or if it is the paper cassette tray, remove it and check the paper pick up roller locking clips.
