Question about Canon imageCLASS D661 Digital Printer

1 Answer

The feed roller from the fresh paper into the machine to be copied does not seem to be working. I did have to disassemble my copier for a jam in the copier roller section. I found a year old page that was jammed in there for some time and caught/stopped the rollers. It all went back together smoothly but now my fresh paper feed roller doesn't seem to be engaging. I cant check it while it operates. Copier won't let me. What do I do? Suggestions.

You can see the feed roller by opening the door on the lower right side. The copier will try to print with this door open. Steven 805-520-3003

Canon ir2016 jams papers under registration clutch. the clutch runs on power up but does not run when copig or printing help


This seems to be a common problem for the Canon ir 20 xx series machines. The problem is having machine indicating paper jams on the left hand side of the machine. When you open the left cover you do sometimes find paper stuck on entering the fuser unit. The main problem, and loads of these machines with these problems have been fixed, are the half moon pickup rollers! Clean the pickup rollers or even better, replace them and you will get the machine working 100%!! To confirm this try copying from the machine using the manual feed tray. You will never get a paper jam. This fault is due to incorrect pickup resulting in timing problem and thus getting paper jams! Good luck!

In some cases, not all; the paper feed rollers get dry and slick. If so they tend to feed at times and sometimes stop halfway at times. Look at your rollers.

Paper will not feed but printer goes through it print cycle


Hi,

Try this, without turning off your printer, unplug the power cable from the unit, after you have done that, on your printer, hold the Ok and cancel button to gether and while you are holding it down, plug the power cord back and keep holding the buttons for about 5 sec.

once the unit turns off, use the power button and turn it on. the unit would print and alignment sheet and this should fix the issue

So you need ten sets of a fifty page document for this mornings meeting. It's 8:30AM and your meeting is at 9:00AM. You begin with your project and the copier jams. You clear the jam but it keeps jamming! It's not pulling in the paper. Sure you can call the repair person, but you need the copies now! There's nothing you can do, or is there?

All office equipment that feeds paper has a component inside that pulls the paper out of the paper tray and into the machine. Most are made out of rubber and just like the tires on your car they wear out. When a roller is worn and dirty they will cause paper jams. The purpose of this article is to show you how you can clean or rejuvenate the rollers long enough for you to complete your job and have your repair person come out and fix it properly.

Alternative solutions

When your machine is jamming, first locate where the paper is jamming. Which paper tray? Is it tray 1 or tray 2? Also which size is jamming? On machines that have more than one paper tray you can switch paper trays and then you can skip cleaning the rollers. Make sure when you change cassettes that the copier registers the correct size. The machine will think it is a different size and it will jam. The sensors are set for a specific timing and it will know the difference in length from letter size and legal size. I also would try using the bypass tray or manual feed tray if so equipped. This will get you up and running quicker than cleaning the rollers.

Determining if the rollers are the problem:

If you need the specific tray to be functional we will get busy with the repair.

First make a single copy in the tray that is jamming. By doing this you are determining where the paper is jamming. If it is jamming in the exit for instance, you have another problem. If it is jamming in the center of the machine, again it is a different problem. But if it jams at the cassette or paper tray area the next step is removing the paper tray. Shine your flashlight into the paper feed area and see if there are any pieces of paper torn off inside or something blocking the paper path. Now that you have ruled out a blocked paper path, you can clean the feed roller(s).

Tools Required:

Flashlight, strong cotton towel (so it will not rip off in the machine), WD-40 or Rubber roller rejuvenator.

Note: Never use alcohol to clean rollers. It dries out the tread and the remaining tread will get ripped off and then it still will not feed. Use WD-40 it works great!

Cleaning the rollers:

Shine your flashlight into the paper feed area and locate the rubber rollers that feed the paper in. Grab your towel and saturate it with cleaning fluid. This can be WD-40 or your favorite roller rejuvenator. Start by cleaning the roller and spinning it all the way around not missing any of the surfaces of the roller. Then go over it again with the dry part of the towel. As I said there are many different types. Some have a set of three rollers. One Pre-feed roller, this pushes the paper into the other rollers. One feed roller and one separation roller. Others have a half moon style. These are harder to clean because they have a clutch system that keeps it at home position when not feeding.

WARNING: If you try and turn these to clean them you will damage the clutch mechanism! There are two ways you can clean these types. First you can actuate the clutch by pushing down on the solenoid or release lever. This sometimes can be hard to get to. You can also start the copy process and shut off the machine exactly when the feed roller engages. This takes some patience and practice but it is better than damaging the clutch. Once you get it where you can clean the roller repeat the procedure above.

Some alternatives to replacing feed rollers:

There is a material called feed roller tape. I have used it when I didn't have the right roller in my car stock. It works with some styles mainly half moon styles. Just peel off the adhesive and wrap it around the worn roller surface. They also have some that stretch over the old rollers. I have never used this but I have been told it will get you up and running. On old copiers or printers that you can no longer get parts for you can apply clear silicon on the feed surface and let it dry twenty four hours. It works but I am inclined to use the real thing. You can also use generic rollers manufactured for almost all equipment. I have mixed feeling about these because I have had to go back and change them again later. For the best repair I use genuine OEM feed rollers. They are still inexpensive and they will last you longer and you will have fewer headaches.

Feed Rollers

There are many types of rollers and feed systems. Here are some common feed rollers with their part numbers. Rollers will normally come in a maintenance kit but they may need to be replaced approximately half way through the maintenance kit cycle.

Service manual for the HP 6110 all in one printer.


A metric allen wrench set (small sizes) is needed to remove the drive mechanism from the document feeder, then the parts can be disassembled. Unfortunately, the drive rollers, made of rubber were damaged by a small metal piece - (staple?) that was fed into the machine. Removal of the metal piece almost restored the drive. It needs to be lightly snded to remove the marks made by the staple. Thanks anyway.

Paper jam repeatedly


Possible cause:
The eject rollers get too slippery because of paper dust and other foreign matter.
Recommendation:
Clean the eject rollers with a paper towel dampened with water. A second cleaning may be
necessary. The easiest way to do this (without disassembling the machine for full access to
the rollers) is to hold the dampened paper towel against the rollers and make a blank print.
Clean the rollers as they turn and remove the paper towel as the paper ejects. Repeat as
necessary.
Now is a good time to also clean the paper pick up roller and feed rollers to prevent
feeding problems.

Printers that jam usually have worn feed rollers, some where in the machine, or a bad sensor. If worn feed rollers are the problem the paper usually jams in different locations in the machine. If a sensor is bad the paper usually jams in the same spot each time paper is fed into the machine. A new machine does not have worn rollers, but could have a broken sensor. It sounds like the a roller might be worn. There is a company called Tech Support that use to sell a cleaning fluid for paper feed rollers. You can use alcohol but alcohol dries out rubber, but you can use it to diagnose the problem. Clean all visible rollers. Especially the rollers that the paper jams between.
