I just acquired this copier and I cannot get the thing to feed so it can copy.I have already tried to follow instructions from within the copier itself...(You know how a certain light goes on, and then it tells you what steps to take), Well that didn't work either. And I cannot find setup nor operating instructions anywhere

Document feeder Paper feed rollers should be cleaned with alcohol, blow out the document feed area with compressed air (computer duster), check feeder for bits of paper, post it notes, and signature flags. Clean glass, check for sticky areas on the glass.
Seems the wheels on the left side of the feeder maybe slipped or something, I turned them 1/2 way over so the gray rubber part shows, then they were able to grip the paper and feed it into the copier. That worked for a little while, then it did it again, I turned them again and it worked. Maybe I just need to make sure they have a little traction to solve the problem. Thanks for your website.
Sometimes the feed rollers can get dusty or acquire other deposits on them that can cause a loss of friction, resulting in feed problems. You could try cleaning them to see if it would help. Here's the instructions:
When you say it won't copy, do you mean that the paper won't move in the feeder or that no copies come out? Do you get any error messages? Try using alcohol on a swab or lint free cloth and clean the feed rollers in the feeder. They sometimes get paper dust on them and they can't pick up the paper. Also make sure that any paper sensors that detect when paper is in the feeder are intact. Occasionally they get stuck or broken. Hope this works.
If the paper isn't feeding in the ADF (automatic document feeder - upper paper feeder) then the ADF roller assembly will need to be replaced. Try a copy on the flat glass area. If it work, then it's the ADF, If not then the upper scanner assembly with have to be replaced.
