Yes, I have had the same problem at times. The best solution is to 'fan' the paper well (put air between the sheets) BEFORE putting it in the tray. Also, tap down the front edge of paper (that enters the printer) to align the sheets better. You can also clean the rollers with a damp rag to help traction. Hope this helps!

DP80F FAX WILL NOT FEED ONE PAGE AT A TIME. IT WILL TAKE 1 PAGE , 5 PAGES , 2 PAGES . HOW DO I FIX THIS MACHINE TO FEED ONE PAGE AT A TIME


Potential solution: When putting in several sheets of paper, grab the sheets by one end, and fan the papers (spread them) at the other end. Reverse your grip and do the same thing to the other end.

Reason: paper is cut by a shear. If the blade of the shear is not perfectly sharp, it crushes fibers into the edges of the adjoining sheets. This causes the sheets to misfeed in the random way you describe. Ruffling the paper before putting it into the printer separates the pages so they will feed properly.

The paper isnt going through


If the paper feed rollers are not clean, they may slip and cause paper feeding problems.
The problem may be alleviated by performing paper feed roller cleaning.

1. Open the Printers folder.
- For Windows XP Home Edition Click/Select "Start," "Control Panel," "Printers and Other Hardware," and "Printers and Faxes."
- For Windows XP Professional Edition Click "Start" and "Printers and Faxes."
- For Windows 2000/Me/98 Click/Select "Start," and "Settings," then "Printers."
2. Right-click the icon of the printer for paper feed roller cleaning, and select Properties from the displayed list.
3. Click the Maintenance tab and click Roller Cleaning. 4. Remove all sheets of paper from the auto sheet feeder, and click OK. 5. Confirm the message to be displayed, and click OK.
Do not try other operations until printer's operation completes.
6. When the printer's operation is completed, follow the confirmation message to load three new sheets of A4 or letter-sized plain paper in the auto sheet feeder
7. Click OK.
8. Confirm the message to be displayed, and click OK.
Do not try other operations until all the three sheets are ejected.
Memo: The printer prints nothing on those sheets.
9. When all the three sheets of the paper are ejected, paper feed roller cleaning is completed.
10. Click OK.
Performing Roller Cleaning is completed.

There is usually no reset from the machine it is in your printer properties. Open the properties and set it to the tray you want it to feed from and usually there is a apply button try that.

When I print on my Canon MP730, it always prints out a blank page after every print job. How can I fix this?


SOLUTION(S): Reset the Sheet Feeder Gears
If the power fails while the paper is feeding or during a print job, the paper feed gears will lose their proper
alignment. The reason is that after the power is restored the paper feed gears will attempt to return to the
home position, which may not be possible if the paper stop cam is not in the correct position.
PROCEDURES
1. Remove the sheet feeder from the unit.
2. Remove the sheet feeder motor from the sheet feeder assembly.
3. Remove the drive gear from its spindle.
4. Realign the lifting tray gear and paper stop cam gear.
5. Reinstall the drive gear and sheet feeder motor.
6. Reattach the sheet feeder to the print unit.
7. Reassemble the unit.
