Question about Printers & Copiers
I've nearly the same problem....My printer(HL5050) takes only a little bit of the sheet, then paper led flashes.
I've found a block into the paper feeder. This printer is impossible to disassemble.!!...even if I've the service manual, because for taking away a simple pressed paper block , it's necessary disassembling almost all the machine!!! No comment
So I'd an idea:
I've sprayed into the paper feeder a great quantity of a cleaning spray (without oil) , in order to get the paper block wet, then , by means a school-book plastic cover, used like a paper sheet, and manually acting on the gear, I've pulled this plastic sheet up and down several time (spraying in the same time)in order to remove these hard paper blocks. Now my feeder seems free. Tomorrow I'll try to test it.....
PS To do this it's necessary the only removal of left cover, in order to reach the gear which allows the paper to advance manually.
