Lanier 1674 Copier: Message shows paper misfeed. However, there is no paper misfeed anywhere on or in the copier. I have checked for pieces of paper lodged in one of the feeds, but none have been found. All parts appear to be moving. Paper will feed up to some point and then the error appears. Any suggestions out there. Please help if you can.

Re: Paper Misfeed Problem
When you close the doors does the message disappear? If so then the paper pickup roller is worn. Open the cassette remove all paper apart from one sheet. Spray a alcohol based cleaned on the leading edge of the paper. Try and do a copy this will issue a jam and also clean the pickup roller. repeat a few times then clean out the cassette and dry off place new paper in the cassette and try. Also there maybe a piece of paper behind the cassette. Remove cassette and reach in and remove paper lodged at back.

before i can help you you need to tell me which brand and model is the machine. The Message "misfeed detected" means that a paper is bee jammed inside of the copier so you should open some door and remove the paper which has been jammed inside of the copier. Because of that i need the brand and model of the copier for i to be able to help you and tell you what to do
I like your pictures.... Have you tried to clean the feed roller with a slittly damp rag with Simple Green or WD-40? You can try that and wipe the extra off. They both clean the rubber roller's. If that works good, that means the feed rollers are worn and need replacing. But you may also need the paper pick-up feed clutch. You said you can still run paper throw the by-pass. Good Luck
just check propely any small piece of paper is in machine or any sensor in paper path is disturbed check all sensors and there levers .or take a hard file cover and from bypass with ur hand pull it in copier and send him to toward exit tray .just off copier first and do this .
there is most likely a small piece of paper on a sensor/
remove paper tray and look inside, is there paper behind the tray? look at the tires are they bald and sniny? replace. Look at the tires and see if there is any scrap of paper there.
open right door and look down towards the paper tray, do you see any pieces of paper? there is a small black lever there, it's the sensor is it stuck?
look into the fuser (where it gets hot) ,you may have to remove it the paper sometimes gets crumbled like an accordion there, htere is also a small black lever there see any paper is it stuck?
Sounds like a dirty sensor or a small piece of paper stuck. Check the feeder, left side, underneath. There should be a switch actuator in the paper path that is visible. Also, on the right side, check all of the openings for anything stuck. If you have no luck, get some canned air and blow out everything. If its still jammed, it can be easily unplugged in the back of the machine, and the machine section will still operate.
