Crumpling paper & blotchy ink

My paper keeps crumpling up as I'm printing it out, but it's in line with the tray so I'm not sure what's happening. And also, just recently, as I print out a sheet, the ink blotches and does not distribute evenly along the text. One line will be dark and the next will be faded and not fully formed. How do I correct this? The ink levels are full, and I do the maintenance.. I'm not sure what happened- it used to work perfectly.

The rollers and guide on the back need to be cleaned and lubed. On the rubber rollers use a mild cleaning solution, on the bearings use a light oil and on the black plastic rollers you will see post that sticks out from the center of the roller here you will want to use a light grease (lithium).

Hope that helps...

SOURCE: paper feed problem-wont go through- crumpling up as it tries to go through

You probably have a piece of paper stuck at the place where it's crumpling. Take a good look and carefully extract it. It may be small, so look hard.

Paper jam at exit


Have you set the tray to thick cardstock in the printer?
If not try that. This will let thicker paper go through more easily.
Make sure you bot have the tray as the printjob set up as the same type of paper.
How much does the paper weigh?
Also try printing from the manual feed. You're paper path is shorter that way and easier for the printer to handle.
Does it only jam on this type of paper?
Might be a fuser easy but don't think that's the case with this one.

Documate error 8


Hello.


I am a Support Engineer with Xerox Scanners.

E8 is a Paper Jam error that could be caused by:
- paper crumpling during scan.
- paper is multi-feeding all at once instead of feeding separate.
- scanner continuously tries to feed after paper has fed through.


if the paper is crumpling during the scan, make sure the inside of the scanner is clear of any obstructions. use the paper guides in the ADF tray to keep the paper straight when feeding in.

if the paper is multifeeding while scanning, fan out the pages before inserting them into the scanner. if problem persists, try cleaning the rollers with rubbing alcohol and a lint free cloth.

if scanner tries to continually feed after the paper feeds through, the ADF tray will need to be reseated. open the scanner and remove the ADF tray at the top. line up the 4 keys at the bottom of the tray with the 4 corresponding key slots inside the scanner. push the tray back until it clicks into place.


We also have an extensive support site and knowledgebase at
http://www.xeroxscanners.com/en/en/support/


If you continue to experience trouble, please feel free to contact us by calling 800-648-0410.


Regards,

Document comes out crumpled


Paper is not feeding through your printer properly.

First thing you should do is to remove the paper from your paper tray. After removing, place the paper back in the tray, making sure it sits evenly within the tray. There should be no part of that is higher than any other.

Next, carefully close the paper tray, making sure that no part of the paper catches when closing. Do this by feel. If you feel any resistance when sliding the tray shut, pull the tray open and try again.

If this does not solve the problem, open the printer doors and take a look inside the printer. There might be something small impeding the paper's smooth movement through your printer.

Finally, take a few seconds to clean the paper pulls (the little rubber wheels you see inside your printer). If these are dirty, the paper will not be pulled through the printer in an even way. It could pull off track causing one of the sides of the paper to rub against the printer. This is what causes the crumpling. To clean the paper pulls, just use a damp cloth and gently wipe them. Good luck!

Drum is blinking


I found that buying good name brand paper solves the crumpling problem. Mine was doing the same thing and I was buying generic paper. I have switched to name brand and it has been working fine ever since.

Paper jam


If it is getting crumpled in the tray, there is something blocking the paper path.
What I would suggest is taking out the toner and drum cartridge, then remove the paper tray. Tip the machine on it's back and look into the paper feed area for something blocking the paper path.
When it is crumpling the paper like that, the feeder is working fine, just something blocking the paper path.
You can take a minela folder, and gently push it through the paper path to dislodge the obstruction.

Crumpled paper comes out of copy machine


Firstly make sure that in the cassette the paper tray guides are fully against the paper as if they are not the paper will wiggle through the machine and cause your fault. If this doesn't work then check the paper path as there maybe a small piece of paper causing it to shift and turn causing the crumple. Also check the fuser and the little plastic stripper fins as they may have dried toner on them causing the fault.

Hope this helps you
Thanks J
