A clear, small, rectangular piece of plastic with glue residue has fallen off the paper feed roll, but I don't know where it goes and now the printer will not pull paper through. Please tell me where to re-stick this clear plastic piece?

Do not pull the paper through the mechanism without pressing feed button.

Problem Description: no attempt to put paper thru printer, if it feeds it jams. Panasonic UB-5315


Hi, usually it is only a matter of removing the paper and turning it around prior to printing- but only at the start of each session. There may be a small piece of paper jammed in the paper throat area. You may be able to just see it if you open the paper draw or the plastic film area. You can access the latter area by sliding the tag downwards on the RHS of the printer. The piece of paper will be right at the bottom. Occasionally there is a full piece rolled up in the shoot that you can see above the film. You may have to remove the film rolls to access this. Make sure you look at which roll goes where before you remove them.- Ross

How can I change the paper. I cannot find the correct slot to install the new paper roll


Press down on the button located on the side of the terminal to unlatch the
paper roll cover, then lift the cover up and back
Remove any partial roll of paper in the printer tray by lifting up
Loosen the glued leading edge of the paper or remove the protective strip
from the new roll of paper. Unwind the paper roll past any glue residue.
Hold the roll so the paper feeds from the bottom of the roll
Drop the paper roll into the printer tray.

Close the paper roll cover by gently pressing directly on the cover until it clicks
shut, allowing a small amount of paper past the glue residue to extend outside
the printer door.
To prevent the paper roll cover from damaging the print roller, always gently press
down on the printer dust cover to close it.

Hi, the paper feed into the printer does not work properly. when printing the sheet will try to deed in, then stop. I can hear the roller still moving until the error lights go off. To get a sheet to print...


get yourself a can of electronic contact cleaner in a arisal can. spray this on a rag and clean the paper feed wheels and the seperator pad (cork piece about 3/16 x 1inch) located right under the paper pick wheel.these wheels get glue build up on them and become slippery the contact cleaner will remove the glue with out leaving a residue behind

Whwen I feed my paper in my printer it pulls to the right


take a look inside the printer there are a few small rubber wheels (where paper comes out)
most likely you have a small piece of paper jammed and blocking the left wheel from pulling the paper. they are very delicate so be gentle with them. the issue may also be caused from the back set of wheels where the paper feeds into the printer.
I have a straight piece if clear plastic thet is approx same size as sheet of paper and this is what I use to clear paper jams. The best way to prevent this from happening again is to remove paper when not using and cover printer with a small towel. I have found p-clips and all sorts of junk in clinets printers.

I have a canon pixma mp180. some little plastic pieces fell into the paper feed. I pulled what i could see out but now the paper jams when being fed. I did the maintenance roller cleaning. I was wondering...


I kept running the maintenance roller cleaning with paper in the feed and eventually I was able to see the tip of the plastic piece that had fallen in as I pulled the paper through with my fingers, I was able to get the whole piece and now the printer is golden.

MP970 printer error - paper jam


Hello there this may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Load new reel of paper


Assuming that you know where the paper gets feed in, I usually use this trick to start a new roll of paper.
First, tear off the end of the new roll so that there isn't any glue stuck on the paper.
Then, fold the tip of the paper like an arrow. > (Fold one side to the middle and the other side to the middle so both sides meet in the middle.
Then, place the paper into the slot where the paper feeds in.. (Usually goes under the printer assembly) and then hit the PAPER FEED button at the same time. If the paper is in the correct slot, the paper should start feeding the paper all the way through.
Hope this helps.
Have a good day.

6400 'out of paper' but paper IS in tray


Hi Tabitha Most likely problem is that the feed roller has gone out of synch with the other parts. Wha6t you need to do is dismantle the machine and just realign the feed roller in the ASF. It sounds daunting, but it's really quite easy. I suggest you get a service manual (http://www.TheServiceManualSHop.com) and take the machine apart to allow access to the ASF. Remove the ASF from the machine and simply turn the drive gears so the ASF goes through a full "paper feed" cycle. Once done the rubber feed wheel will come to rest with it's flat spot facing the cork pad and you can put it back together. Whilst it's in pieces, check the paper sensor is still in tact. If it's broken you can glue it back together with superglue. If the broken part is lost you can make another one from another pice of plastic and glue it in place. Once assembled, it should work fine.
