What happens if you pull a paper jam from feeder, the opposite direction that your support to?


There are usually a number of paper guides and sensor arms that will tear into the paper if pulled the wrong way.
This can leave paper fragments in the fuser causing further jams, temperature sensor malfunctions, or odd marks on the print, and small pieces of paper left in the fuser usually require disassembling the unit to clean it out.
At worst case one or more sensor arms could be dislocated or broken which can be difficult or expensive to replace.

Toshiba 2860.. auto doc feeder keeps jamming.. seems like one side is feeing and other had side isnt or something similar. Any ideasa?


In any doc feeder, the initial two feed rollers and one paper separator pad/roller handle most of the paper transportation. So usually if you have misfeeds, and the paper is not crumpling up, you have a problem with worn or dirty feed rollers. However, if the paper is getting crumpled up, you most likely have a physical obstruction blocking the paper path. My recommendation for when this happens is to take a thick piece of card stock and manually feed it through the paper path on the doc feeder, this usually acts to unclog any jammed paper bits or debris.

Machine keeps saying paper out


You have one of the paper path sensors stuck, or broken. I'm afraid this is a repair center issue, unless you are familiar with the disassembling of the unit. Good luck.

Be blessed.

Some shredders have optical sensors with a dark sensor LED on one side of the slot, and a clear transmitter LED on the other. You will most likely have to disassemble the shredder housing to clean them.
MAKE SURE TO UNPLUG THE UNIT.
Generally you will find screws on the underside of the shredder unit, with one screw covered by a "warranty void if broken" sticker. Remove these screws, separate the housing, and clean the optical sensor pair with windex or isopropyl rubbing alcohol. If your shredder has a CD slot, it may have its own sensor pair. Be sure to clean both pairs of sensors, as the CD sensors seem to be the ones that have the most trouble because of small aluminum debris.

My brother laser printer HL-5050's paper light is flashing, which usually indicates a paper jam. i've checked 5 times and there is no paper jam. have shut off printer and restarted 3x. when i try to print,...


Hi 
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.....
Regards

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.

Paper Shredder will not shut off when in auto mode


if you answer no to the following question, then I do know your solution: Q: When you unplug the unit immediately after your action of "When those paper complete the shredder does not turn off."...and then plug it back in, does the shredder STILL continue to operate? if no, then the solution is to disassemble the feeder unit and manually unclog the paper sensor.
