On the bottom of the machine there is a dark plastic piece that redirects the incoming paper, and it can easily slide out of place. Turn the machine over and see if it's out of alignment.

Our Cannon MP210 feeds more than one sheet at once


Make sure you fan the paper properly and it may need a new separation pad, also make sure the side guides are tight on the paper and the paper can't move around.

What would cause tray 1 to misfeed every 12 to 15 sheets? The misfed sheet ends up laying on the edge of the paper tray advanced about 3/8" from the paper stack?


check your paper thickness setting in your drivers
2. clean separation pad at the bottom of the paper tray
3. clean rollers located after the pick up area(registration rollers)
4. check actuators for the sensors to see if they are sticking

I consistently get a "Paper Skewed" message on


It's just a practice with every plotter that i've worked on.The guide lines are absolutely inacurate.For every individial z6100 may be different but in mine the the right side of the paper must be about 3mm inside from the tip of the guide arrows(the paper must cover 3mm of the arrows).

Paper keeps shifting during loading and eventually gets jammed every time


Seems like the rollers are either dirty, or worn out. Probably the latter.

Canon MP730 Paper feed is not working correctly.....keeps jamming and feeds the paper incorrectly


There are two feeders on this MP730. There is the sheet feeder on top and there is the paper feeder on the back. You can have problems with both.

The sheet feeder on top.
If the problem is things go through somewhat sideways, and if this is the problem, stuff some postit notes between the back grey thing and the feeder tray to eliminate this problem. Add or subtract to the wad to make it right.

If the problem is it does not grip the sheet, what I used to do is to help it through by one sheet at a time, painful. I got frustrated with this so for scanning, I have a Snap Scan 1500, which is faster and better.

The paper feeder.
A small piece of paper left in the paper infeed path can cause a major problem. You cannot have anything in the paper path that will skew the paper, so you must get any little bit of restriction out of there.
As the printer gets older, you will have to produce your own guides to prevent this skewing, as the guides on the printer do not do this well. I use clamps and wooden guides to keep things in line.

Misfeed when attempting to make a copy - Ricoh FT5535


If you are a technical person you may want to remove the tray from the machine (pull all the way out, tilt upwards, and pull.) to clean the rollers. Once the trays are removed you will see a set of three rollers for each tray. They can be removed and cleaned or cleaned directly on the machine. They may have build up dust on them preventing feed. Reinstall the trays the same way they came out but in reverse steps.

Then:

1. Pull offending tray all the way out and remove paper.
2. Unlock the side guides and make sure they move freely
3. Set about 100 sheets of NEW paper for now and adjust the side guides and the end fence. The end fence must be against the paper (touching) and the side guides must NOT be too tight agains the paper as this will prevent the tray from lifting.
4. Make sure the paper size dial is set to the paper SIZE and ORIENTATION.
5. Close tray and test.

Let us know what happens. In the worst case it could be a Magnetic clutch malfunction

HP PSC 1510 keeps coming up with a misfeed


There may be a very small jam in the printer. Also, test with a different **** of paper. Put in one sheet to test.

The machine gives a false error message.''misfeed A :internal path


Pull out paper cassett and look for paper in the feed section. Fold a sheet of paper in half and using the blue lever inside right side door feed paper between feed rollers. Make sure you do the whole width of feed section. There might be a small piece stuck you can't see.

Printing is skewed and distroted


The drive rollers are probably contaminated, hardened or worn. You can try doing something through the manual feed; take a fresh sheet of quality paper, make a fat line across it with pure alcohol (not rubbing alcohol; too much water), let the printer pull the sheet in a few inches, then hold the paper to stop it, doing this several times before the sheet is fully pulled in.
If you are lucky, and you have traces of black on the sheet when it exits, you might have cleaned the rubber drive rollers a little.
Another possibility is, you may have a scrap of paper in the paper path causing problems but to check this, you will need some disassembly, not always a 'fun' project.
