    I know where the lock is, I followed the instructions, I pressed the BW key, warming up, starts to feed, red error light comes on. Thats it - no fix. What about taking it apart and fixing it that way. Tried unplugging...no work. This is ready for service call.

If your scanner bulb does not come on, either it has gone bad or the controller for it has. Consult the user guide for less common causes of the message:

Hi do you have a scanner transportation lock? on the unit where you actually place the document or on the glass area on the very right hand or left hand side do you have a switch that has a scanner logo or picture? showing lock and unlock pad? position it to unlock pad after turning it off, just toggle it 3-5x then position it on unlock position then turn it back on and try copying again.

I have a canon ir 1018j black and white photocopier that does not pick a paper nor photocopy


If the problem is simply that the machine is not feeding paper, you should clean the paper pick up and feed rollers. Typically there will be one attached or above the paper tray(s) and a couple that transfer the paper through the machine to the print drum and fuser. Find them and clean them with clean cloth wet with a dilute solution of dish wash detergent with a few drops of methylated spirit or isopropanol mixed in. If paer then feeds but no print - you have more serious issues.

Hp laserjet 4345 mfp cannot photocopy anything because the startup button has a red light


Hi Bridgette.

The red light on the startup-button indicates that the machine is not ready for a photocopy. Usally there is something stuck in automated document feeder (ADF). Take a close look and see if can see something in the paperpath. If no luck, try pushing a A4 sheet manually through the ADF and see if something comes out with the sheet. Usally there is a small piece of paper, a paper clip or a staple stuck in the ADF. If nothing found in the ADF, the Scanner Controller Board is probably broke, and needs to be replaced. Good luck.

You're right. There is probably debris on the glass where the paper passes through. It's a common problem. You'll have to raise up the scanner so that you can see the glass. Then clean it off and you're back on business.

Zerox WorkCentre XD125f E2 red paper jam light


This machine problem can be very involved.
A paper jam as described can be in any locations of the copier.
First of all when the toner-developer falls on the base of the paper feeder, it can contanimate all paper feed shafts and even sensors, and plug connections.
Worn feed rolls can cause the machine to jam. Clean the rollers and see if it corrects the problem.
A bent paper tray can cause the copy to skew, causing jams.
Sometimes the plasic paper path baffles are warped leaving narrow gaps in the paper feed path not allowing the paper to go through properly.
A bad paper feed sensor can cause inttermittant paper feed jams. This sensor is located just above the feed rolls. A involved process to take out without breaking the plastic components.
The machine has paper feed clutches located at the back of the feed rolls. To get to them it is also involved. Sometimes these clutches slip and will cause paper feed problems. There paper feed solinoids may operate intermittantly not allowing the paper feed clutch to operate correctly.
The main board can also cause these types of problems, not allowing the correct signal to operate the paper feed solinoids.
There is so much in this area to locate and isolate for paper feed problems.
If all else fails, call Xerox for a service repair.
