Corners folding while copying

Heres a couple of copier techs with a question.

This is for a Ricoh 2045e.

We are getting the corners to fold while copying.

It is the lead edge back corner and if folds it upwards.

We have cleaned and inspected the mylar surface as well as the transfer belt as well as all feed guides and trays.

There are now visible cracks or burrs found.

It's intermittent. Only happening 1 out of every 25 copies.

Any ideas?

    We found the problem after all. It has to do with a guide that sits below the door where the transports sits on. The right edges were worn on it or something is built up on it. Replacing it should take care of the problem.

    We tried a fuser replaced and didn't it was folded before it hit the fusing section. That solution wasn't that easy to solver unfortunately.

If it is just folding the paper back without pressing it, then its a problem in the fuser. Paper sticking to long to the upper fuser roller and catching either a pick off finger or a mylar on the exit of the fuser.
Hope that helps...

Ricoh copier i make some copies but when i turn the papers to print the other side of the sheets the paper gets folded as it enters leaves the tray and creates paper jam

Make sure the ink is dry and the paper is cold before replacing as this can weaken the paper strength and cause it to fold. Also a lot of printers are very picky about paper alignment and don't like you just putting in single sheets. Try having at least 6 sheets in the slot and 'tapping' them on a flat surface to align the bottom surface before feeding them in.

Our office's Konica Minolta Bizhub C360 is always

This model has a tendency to fold corners. Have the tech. check the input guide to the fuser unit and also to check the door on the right hand side above the bypass tray. Its a fairly common issue. Also have them search konica-minolta's website for other techs having this problem. Good Luck !

Paper jam in 2nd feed mae z fold from tray 1 and 2

If the paper is "Z' folding at the reg. roller you may need a new reg. clutch or you may clean it. If it "Z" folding in the fuser, you may have a pick off claw that is in the wrong postion. Good Luck

After several copies the paper gets very warm and paper rolls on the edge and jams

Rolls on the edge meaning it curls upward or folds a corner? You might try pullig out the paper cassette (tray), removing the entire contents and flip upside down (face down) this should help to alievate paper curl. If it is folding corners, you may need to have serviced. Let me know, please.

Crooked Cpoies

Pull all of the paper out of paper tray and reload. More than likely you will find some sheets on the bottom that are folded at the corners. This will cause crooked copies and also jams.

Bell & Howell Copiscan Spectrum corner problems

It can be a nightmare to find out what is causing the dog ear page or folded page at the corner. Check your glass **** inside the scanner to make sure its seated in the scanner properly. The big one is the check the metal paper guides in the scanner paper path. If a guide is bend it will hook the paper and cause it to fold over.
