Hi Make sure the paper tray (cassette) is not missing the small separation pad with the spring. It is part of the paper cassette. the roller may be worn so cleaning it might not help. Lawrence

Paper feeder does not feed papers properly.

Remove the paper tray and check the pickup rollers that are located on the underside of the fax, just above where the paper would sit when the tray is installed. If they are smooth this is a sign that they are worn out. Newer pickup rollers are very grippy. A quick temporary fix would be just wiping any grime or dust off with a damp cloth.

Jammed paper...

Try removing the Toner/drum unit and see if paper is there. Also check the rear access door to see if paper is stuck in the fuser.
Sometimes you will get a jam where the paper has not even left the paper tray. Try removing the paper tray and cleaning the paper feed roller with and cloth dampened with a little water. The roller is located just above the center of the tray.

I have an a1530cs copier. It will not pick up any paper when the button is presseed . it just makes a noise (low vibration) like it is wanting to pick-up .can you please help me?

Most such printing problems stem from incorrect paper types or paper loading. Make sure that your paper is loaded properly, and that the paper type is made for your specific printer.
If paper is not feeding properly into the printer, the problem may stem from hardware failure. Check the feed assembly to see if all the parts are in working order. You may be able to manually advance the paper in order to see which component may be failing. If necessary, clean the paper pickup rollers to make sure the paper path is free of sticky dirt and debris.

Out of the lower paper tray when you go to print? Try this, remove the cassette tray and use a water dampened cloth and clean the gray paper pickup roller off. A lot of times this has paper fiber build up that causes the paper not to feed. The printer has a certain timing pattern for when paper should reach a certain sensor, and if it doesn't, then a jam error will occur.
