Try cleaning the paer feed roller with a detrgent based industrial cleaner/ not an alcohol based one as this will dry out the roller and make your problem worse. If you are in a humid environmentyou may need to replace the paper in the paper tray and "fan" it prior to use, or it could be the paper feed clutch itself, which would be more complicated to remove clean and lube.
if you have used the fax a lot or have used a cheaper quality paper the rubber feed rollers are slipping.
Open the unit up and use a bit of isopropyl alcohol on a paper towl and rub or clean the roller. Let dry and close it up again. That usually will clean enough to make it work again. If not the roller may need to be replaced.
You could try opening the feeder and clean the gray rollers with mentholated spirits and see how that helps as it just maybe the rollers are slipping slightly.
Once you have done the above take out all of the paper from the back feed and using one sheet blot the leading edge with some spirit and place back into the machine (The back of it) then try coping something there will be a paper jam and do this a couple of times. Once you have done this wipe the area dry put new paper in and then try doing a copy and the paper should feed perfectly now and the test will come when fax comes in.
