The automatic feeder won't take paper at all. I see the little gate open up, but the rollers just squeal. After calling Sharp they want me to send the copier/scanner to the warehouse for repair - I'd rather not. Do you have any suggestions?

Re: Paper Feed Problem Sharp AL-1461CS
It is a paper jam problem.
Two examples of “false” paper jams are:
printer is unable to pick up the paper at all, so it never gets out of
the tray. Since the paper never reaches the first sensor, the printer
thinks there is a paper jam.
successfully passes through the printer, but one of the sensor flags
gets stuck and fails to return to its initial position. This makes the
printer think that paper is still present at that sensor, once again
causing it to display “paper jam.” Be sure to investigate these two
possibilities if you don’t find any paper jammed anywhere.

Dear Friend the paper jam in the machine is due to the rubber feeders present in the tray bin that pick the paper up and forward them. so
i suggest them to take a cloth and dip it in water and then (just like
moisturized cloth) resin it completely that it do not form droplets that
gets into the copier. now switch OFF the machine and try wiping the rubber feeders with the cloth. you will see a lot of darkness on the rubber feeders. clean all the runner feeders with it and close the machine. now your problem will be solved for paper jams.
Hello sir; Is paper come out with wrinkle, I suggest you need to clean up paper feed roller and pick up roller with alcohal, meanwile check it out the paper path have any thing not suppose to be there.
Most of our printers pull the paper down on one side slightly faster than the other. The printer hardware should even this out when printing. You should also ensure the paper meets the automatic feeder requirements of the printer.
If printing is skewed, feeding multiple pages or jamming, please follow these instructions (use a regular letter size paper to test after doing the steps given below):
Please check to ensure there is nothing obstructing the paper feed mechanism down inside the printer where it is not easily seen. If there is nothing obvious, unplug the printer and remove the paper. Open the front cover and look above the steel rod. You should see a conveyor belt with rubber teeth on it, like a fan belt. Take the bottom part of that belt and move it gently to the left. The cartridges should come out with it. Make sure the cartridges can move fully from one side of the printer to the other. Check also the output rollers on the bottom of the printer for any blockage. If it is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot. Turn the printer off. Next take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the paper feed slot (The manual paper feed slot is preferred, but the automatic feed will do if there is no manual paper feed for this printer) until it comes completely through the printer to the back of the exit rollers. Move it up and down and slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate this may work it loose or you may have to feed the envelope through the front rollers and push your way backward (please be careful here).
Next, take a damp warm cloth and clean the rubber rollers in the automatic sheet feeder. Dust may be coating the rollers there and as they become less tacky, they cannot feed paper correctly.
Like a worn running shoes, the paper feed roller of the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) have lost it's traction and has to be replaced or cleaned. Paper just slids and doesn't picked up properly without that little push. Professional servicers use a cleaner specifically designed for rubber rollers. However, YOU CAN get extra miles on it by dabbing a Q-tip in warm water and cleaning the paper feed roller on the ADF. Like all eletrical devices, the unit has to be turned off and unplugged before working on it. Take all precationary measures and goodluck.
