Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

4 Answers

My Kyocera Mita FS-1000 laser printer no longer will feed (draw in) paper from the paper cassette; however, it stills work fine when feeding paper from the multipurpose tray (MP) on the front of the unit, which is how I have been using it for a some months now. The "failure" of the paper cassette was quite sudden. Other than this problem the printer has been great (purchased in August 2001). It has had light usage; I'm only on my 3rd toner cartridge after all this time.

    I think that you are probably right when you say that it needs a professional "tune-up" and cleaning, but I'm curious about what other opinions might be out there.

    Thank you! :-)

    That info about the tractor wheels will certainly help me when talking to the service dept.

    Let's see what else turns up. Don't worry, I'm not on a permanent fishing expedition.

    Thanks again!

The tractor wheels catching paper from the main paper cassette must be worn out, this often happens after a long use.

You will most likely have to get your printer cleaned by a professional. Even though it has not been used too much over the last several years, it still collects dust and dirt.
We recommend using our repair service search button located on this page to find a professional near you.

Every page jams in printer


This can be a number of problems depending on where the paper jams.
Check and clean the feed rollers if not feeding into the machine.
Ensure that you are printing to the correct size paper and that the cassette is correctly adjusted.
If jamming in the interior under the drum then you may have an obstruction that the paper is hitting.
If it jams just as it gets to the fuser unit then the fuser drive gear may have failed.

Kyocera mita km2530 paper misfeed jam00


This usually means that no paper has been fed from the paper cassette or the machine was turned off when you had a paper jam.
Remove the paper cassette from the machine and ensure that nothing is stopping the paper from feeding.Also look into where the machine locates in the copier to ensure that no paper is jammed behind the cassette.
The paper feed rollers may need cleaning or replacing.

Try cleaning the paper feed rollers for that cassette. Sometimes the rollers get dirty causing the paper to slip and not feed from the cassette causing the machine to register a paper jam.

The rollers can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and a cloth.

Although manual tray prints ok, cassette loading causes red light 3 (paper) to emerge and print failure


Hi.

Check the paper exit at the far side of the paper try, where the paper gets picked. Ensure that the plastic tabs sensing the paper are OK, that paper is well positioned, and that the guides at the sides of paper sheet are well tight.

Test restarting printer and computer, and test on different documents.

Eventually test after reinstalling printer drivers on computer , or test on different computers to exclude the possibility of a driver or software setting problem (still possible).


If that does not fix the problem, then feed clutch, paper sensor and paper feeder interface connector must be tested. To do this it will be necessary to take apart the printer, and the job must be done by a technician.

Here a diagram of the feeding mechanism with the parts to be tested, click on the picture to enlarge:

clean the paper feed roller with a damp cloth after removing the paper tray, otherwise call a technician since parts may need to be replaced, including the roller in case.
