Question about Canon PC-940 Black and White Copier

1 Answer

I replaced the drop down door and springs to my PC 940. Now the paper will not feed thru. It stops after it feeds a couple inches. The printer is also "whining" when it tries to feed. Any suggestions?

Hi,

Check the connections at the end of upper fuser roller, then unplug the copier for 20 min and restart the again.

Printer will not feed paper


Printer would not feed paper no matter how many sheets were in the bin or how clean the printer. I even cleaned the roller. The issue was I just needed a little more tension on the roller that pulled the paper in.

I removed the rear access door (see manual). Off to the left near the feeder roller you will see a spring. What I did is mover the spring to the END of the plastic arm that it is attached to (if it is missing ..you have a bigger problem). If you have moved your printer around a bit, the spring may have slipped down on to the arm and is no longer sitting at the end. This will extend the spring another 1/16 of an inch ...and that is all all it took for me. My printer will now feed a single sheet of paper with no issues. BTW: I put a drop of glue on it after so it would not slip off.

PC 940 paper tray feed springs working poorly, frequent paper jams


It's not the springs, it's the paper feed rollers that are worn out

Canon pc 420 paper feeds only part way


I had the same problem. I found a parts diagram here http://techno-parts.org/canon/220/320_220.php which showed that the springs hold the bar down. On mine, on each side, one of the spring tabs was broken.

I made a metal pin for one side and insert a screw on the other. Be sure and wrap the spring over the nylon bushing.

Canon pixma ip 8500 won't feed paper


I have discovered that my problem was a one inch nail which had at some time been dropped into the paper feed slot. It could not be seen from the outside of the printer and was only discovered when I removed the side trim and top cover. When closely inspecting the nylon roller system that feeds the paper out, I saw a tiny piece of metal that looked out of place. Further probing then loosened the nail back to the paper input area.
My printer is now back in full operating condition after spending a couple of careful hours finding out how to remove the trim.
A well worth while exercise in my case.

Paper won't feed due to piece coming loose


If it is the piece I am thinking of, try replacing the spring with a modified spring from a click-top pen. Otherwise, please add a photo of the issue for better understanding

Won't feed paper


Hiya .. Your roller guides.. just need a general clean... and the sensors located just on the inside of the printer at the bottom where the paper sits ..

Canon pc 430 feeder problem


You may have to fabricate a new anchor for one end of the spring on the side opposite the control panel. There is a wimpy plastic tab that breaks off here, right next to a black Phillips-head screw. Remove this screw and bend a piece of light wire around it, leaving a small hooked end sticking out for the spring to fasten on to. Replace the screw and install the spring. When you install the spring, it must go over the top of the tiny white plastic wheel, in the U-shaped groove.

This is how I repaired my PC430 several years ago and it's still working fine.

Lexmark X73 print/paper problem


Same problem here. Went thru a few tests with Lexmark but didnt help. They next said it would be best to get new one since repair cost would be higher. Thru front door I do see a spring that moves freely. That must be broke. After their help they sent email for 20% off.
