    Thank you. I already took it to a repair shop I found via customer service. They showed me how to remove the cover and get to the rollers and clean them. Seeing it done now and your helpful note hopefully enables me to do it myself next time (if there is, it's not been cleaned since I got it 6+ years ago) if it doesn't wear out by then. Thanks very much for your replies and helpful suggestions.

Normally the paper sensor is a leaf switch which gets operated by weight of paper being pulled in the paper movement path.Since this is a plainpaper fax u must be using A4/legal size paper sheets.Check the paper path visually to find the paper sensor .If its a switch u need to clean the contacts with WD40 or similiar switch cleaning fluid.
Other chance is an optical reflective sensor maybe used in which case you may need to just clean the upper surface which rides below the paper.
Hope this info helps.

Roy, I'm not even close to America, and I still want to answer questions on Fixya. I think you made a mistake with the site you want to address. We don't receive any money and we don't send cards. We are not connected to twice and we don't answer phones. Please next time before you press send, answer or post, check the URL on top of the page, to make sure the message is delivered on the correct place.
Sorry, we can't help you.

My printer says I have paper jam, please remove. but i have only been able to remove partial pieces. How do I get at the rest left in a spot I can not reach


Here's a link from which you should be able to download the online manual with a troubleshooting section that includes specific instructions on clearing a paper jam. See also this page, as I have no great confidence in the links I get from canon, their website is so backwards. If you choose the service and support option, then ask "how do I clear a paper jam" you'll see the instructions they offer.
Issue: Paper is jammed inside the printer
Solution: Remove foreign object from paper feed area (MP130)

Remove foreign object from paper feed path If error message
  • [PLEASE CLEAR PAPER JAM AND PRESS [OK]] or
  • [CHECK PRINTER]
is displayed, follow this procedure to remove paper or obstructions from the machine. Clearing Jams In The Paper Output Tray:
  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out of the Paper Output Tray.

  2. Press .

  3. If you cannot see any jammed paper in the Paper Output Tray, remove it from the machine's interior.
    1. Press to power off the machine.
    2. Lift up the Scan Unit until it locks into place.
    3. Open the Paper Output Tray.
    4. Look in the print area for an obstruction (such as a paper clip, staple, tape, etc.) and then remove it.

  4. If you are printing from an application software, follow the instructions displayed on your computer.
Clearing Jams From The Auto Sheet Feeder:
  1. Gently pull out any jammed paper from the Auto Sheet Feeder.

  2. Press .

  3. If you are printing from an application software, follow the instructions displayed on your computer.

Sorry I can't offer you much more, but just try to get all the bits out. Sometimes a pointy tool on a vacuum will help. Otherwise, maybe you can wrap and tape a post-it note around a popsicle stick or something to reach the paper and try to coax it out, or maybe a bit of folded tape on the end of a ruler or something like that. Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

What would most likely be blown if the paper towel started on fire? General Electric microwave JES1651SJ And, would I get a shock pulling out the part? Thank you!


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

based on your model number, I can only assume you put a metal container in the unit, which in-turn you had a paper towel.. the metal started to spark and thus the fire. you cannot USE METAL in this type of microwave. and if the unit wont work, it now defective...

If you did not use metal, you had a magnetron failure.. maybe you unit is under warranty.

On the inside back wall of the 1986 Adcom GFA-555 Stereo Power Amplifier there are four fuses,two for each channel. Would you tell me please, what amp fuse they are and if they are the fast or slo-blow...


Sorry to contact you this way but i've spoken to an older colleague of mine and it appears that before 1992 in the Adcom GFA-555 they were using bipolar transistors and the amp was rated fo a minimal impedance of 4 ohms - not like in the newer ones that have MOSFETs and are rated for 1 ohm in bridge mode. So the fast fuses that you need are of 6 amps , not 20 like in the newer models.
Sorry for my mistake.
