Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Brother FAX-2800 fax copier I bought in 2001. During the last year the paper feed has routinely failed, causing a "paper jam" error message. Something is wrong with the paper feed. Typically, the paper feed will load about 25% of the page length into the machine, then freeze up, then the message appears. I can usually get it to work by removing the paper, putting a different page on the top and bottom, then reloading the paper. Sometimes I have to do this several times. Is there anything I can do to improve this bad performance? When I look into the innards of the paper feed I don't see anything obvious, but maybe dust/dirt has accumulated on the rollers. Got any advice for this? Thanks. --Mike Potterfield

You need to replace the roller as well as the presure spring. This happens on these all the time. As a matter of fact this happens on a lot of inexpensive printers as well. Someone told me they had a repair kit for this but I never found it. Good Luck

Keep have paper jams


1. Make sure the paper feed rollers are clean, You can clean them with a soft cloth moistened with alcohol. Don't use paper towels.
2. Also make sure all the sensors inside the printer are clean and that there isn't any dust or debris on them.
3. Look for any small bits of wayward paper that may be stuck in the paper path.

I had a paper jam. I removed the paper jam already but computer says it still there. How do I reset it?


It's possible there's still a small piece of paper or dust stuck in the paper feed. Try blowing the area out with compressed air.

Paper not feeding


If there is no paper jammed inside the machine, then look at the "paper out" roller, this is the last roller in the paper path. I would suspect it is out of alignment.
