Follow the mentioned below :
1 Open the top cover.
2 You will see a roller assembly.
3 rotate the assy up so its pointing up.
4 Remove the spring.
5 the roller assy will now lift out. (note how it came out.)

Not sure if this wil help, but here is Dell's troubleshooting page, and might help:
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/5100cn/en/ug/section20.html#804542
Check for any debris or loose paper in the feed paths, and make sure the path is clean.
Some paper may "dry out" I've read on other problems, and this could affect the feed. Dell's site also advises not to mix reams of paper, and just change it when it's out.
Hope this helps, and good luck.

I have a MFC7860DW, How do I set it to collate copies?


You can download the manual from here: Reference page 24: "Collate With the Collate check box selected, one complete copy of your document will be printed and then repeated for the number of copies you selected. If the Collate check box is not selected, then each page will be printed for all the copies selected before the next page of the document is printed."

Why do multiple copies sometimes staple together as one set instead of multiple sets?


I don't know how/why, but if you set the Print settings (main print screen) to non-collate and the Printer Properties (clicking in to get to the staple option) to collate, it works correctly, stapling each set individually.

Can't work out how to use the multiscan? I press scan and it comes up with multiscan and I put the first piece of paper in but don't seem to get asked for any more sheets and it therefore just scans one...


Anita,

Put the pages in the "multiscan" all at once, not just one sheet at a time. The Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) will feed one sheet of your document at a time untill all of the pages are scanned...
Thanks for using FixYa!

How to do copies,ie what buttons do i press


Making a Single Copy
1
Place the original face down in the ADF.
2 Press Copy/Help twice.
To cancel, press Stop.
Do NOT pull on the paper while copying is in progress.
Copy Options: Single or Multiple Copies,
Reduce/Enlarge, Sort/Stack
You can choose additional copy options. First, you can select the number of copies. Next, you can
choose whether multiple copies will be STACKED (all copies of page 1, then all copies of page 2, etc.)
or SORTED (collated). Finally, you can choose an enlargement or reduction ratio. To automatically
reduce the copy to the paper size you have set for the paper tray, select AUTO. To reduce the copy by
a fixed percentage, choose 93%, 87%, 75% or 50%. Or, to enlarge the copy, select 150%, 125% or
120%. To copy a document at its original size, select 100%.
1 Place the original face down in the ADF.
2 Press Copy/Help.
3 Enter the number of copies you want (1-99).
For example: Press 9 for nine copies.
To start copying now, press Copy/Help.
If you would like to select additional copy options, like
SORT, ENLARGE or REDUCE, press Menu/Set.

Can't fax or copy on brother mfc3240c machine


Sounds like you may have a small obstruction in the scanner feed. This would inhibit making copies and sending faxes. Lift this section up slightly to inspect for small pieces of paper or dust. Blowing it out with compressed air would also be a good idea.

KONICA MINOLTA C450 VXL Printer - When stapling multiple copies it staples all the copies together rather than each one separately as required. I use vista operating system.


There is an issue with the Konica Print Driver and the MS Print Driver. If Collate is turned on in both the drivers, you will get this problem.

The solution is to turn off Collate on one of the Drivers. Usually you will have an initial Print Dialog window that pops up when you can select your printer, how many copies and if to collate or not. De-select Collate. Then you should also see Preferences Tab. If you select that tab, select Collate and Staple, your print jobs should now Collate and Staple correctly.

We have XEROX FaxCentre 123.


1. Instead of printing / copying page by page, collate the print...see the options while printing...it will look like 111,222,333 OR 123,123,123 etc.,

2. connect the machine to LAN network by using the LAN module
3. if LAN module is not available, connect a PC to it directly and make it the print controller -> share the printer -> install drivers in other pcs and ..... start printing


have a nice day

bye

I hope my solution was useful
