Question about Barebone Systems

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

HP 4215xi all in one, continues to give the error paper jam, there is no paper jam. I have cleaned all sensors, rollers etc. I have tried a partial and full reset. Any ideas?


Hi,
  1. Turn off the HP product and turn it around so the back of the unit faces you.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the all-in-one. The power cord must be disconnected to allow the paper feed rollers to turn freely.
  3. Locate and open the rear access door by pressing in on the left side tab and then pulling the door toward you. Figure 2: Removing the rear access door

Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door. Click How to Buy on this page to order replacement parts.
  1. From the rear access door opening, remove the jammed paper.
  2. Remove the remaining paper from the paper supply tray. Discard any paper that is damaged or crumpled and then re-stack and reload the paper into the paper supply tray.
  3. Reinstall the rear access door.
  4. Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on.

The following information will help prevent paper jams from occurring:
  • Never use paper that is torn or wrinkled.
  • If you are having problems using paper that has already been printed on once (recycling), replace it with new paper.
  • Remove and then reinstall the rear access door. Verify that the access door is fully locked in place. The paper can skew if the rear access door is not locked.
  • Every six months to one year, clean the paper feed rollers with a rag lightly moistened with water. Over time the paper feed rollers accumulate dust and do not function as well as they once did.
  • When printing envelopes, tuck the flap into the envelope and crease the folds before printing.
Goodluck..

Brothe MFC-240C paper jam error msg won't clear


















**, it is not fixed. I followed instructions on Brother web site and was able to find a piece of paper near the printhead, so I removed it. The printer makes a grinding sound when it tries to print and the same paper jam error returns and can't be cleared. I beleive that the printer repair cost will be more expensive than replacing it with a different printer, and it won't be Brother brand. I probably would not be able or have the tools to do any complicated repair job.

WE HAVE A CANON MP530 COLOR PRINTER. DURING A PRINTING OF LABELS, WE HAD A PAPER JAM, WHICH WAS CLEARED. WE ARE NOW GETTING A MESSAGE "U052" CONCERNING THE PRINT CARTRIDGES, WHICH WE CANNOT...


Pls chk thoroughly the inner parts are clear of any shreds of paper. Blow air thro vacuum cleaner. A small piece of paper sitting on a sensor can create this sort of problem. (For eg, the cartridge stops at both the ends after 'sensing' the end. If paper sticks here, it cant sense and will lead to a crash)

Terry, just to follow up here:

To get the voicemail to answer, toggle off the auto-answer button on your fax. Also, you can get some help from lexmark in the future directly via a live chat (only during business hours) here.

Thanks again, and good luck!

Do the pages go in face up or face down in the feeder to fax in a 7210 series HP all-in-one.


Should go up. There is usually an indication graphic on the feed tray that shows a piece of paper with the corner folded to indicate which side goes up. Try it both ways and see which one works. Use the copy function send something through. If you get a good copy you did it right.
