Jams coming out of cassette at U-Turn, Black Guide has spring on it

Every 3 or 4th print, the paper will hang in the black paper guide, and stop and wrinkle the left edge of the paper........Checked for nicks, nothing there. Should I try to adjust spring tension? Thanks in advance......

Remove the tray and then remove the screw shown in the picture.Jams coming out of cassette at U-Turn, Black Guide - 8aaef29.jpg

The smoked plastic peice will unclip from the fron end by grasping the iJams coming out of cassette at U-Turn, Black Guide - 23e5401.jpgdge and gently rocking up and inward. This will reveal the entire feed wheel.

Clean the entire wheel in the above photo with a damp (Not soaking, just damp) cloth. The wheel will turn making a clicking sound (top inward) allowing you to clean it entirely. Also clean the obligue roller (1st part removed) with a damp cloth and blowing out.

Reassemble as you just took it apart. Pay close attention to the smoked plastic peice that it gets front clipped properly back into place. Don't force it. It will all go back together relatively easy.

That should help eliminate a lot of your jamming issues.

Hope the above helps you. :)

Hello,
so, first, did you clean the vertical path roller? ( its a axis with two rollers beneath the paper registration sensor )
Second, when you open left cover, and paper guide plastic cover ( black ) there is also sensor flapper, that can be a quite of pain because slow reaction of spring on it. Apply wd40 on its spring and in left corner where he lays into bushing. To check flapper response, manually close the paper guide plastic, the sensor must be in middle position.
Also it can be the problem in paper pick up clutch and it needs to be cleaned or replaced.
But, also the problem can be separation claws in cassette ( metal claws that holds the paper ). From experience, the probably is sensor flapper or pick up clutch the problem.

Hope that helps!

I have a Brother Intellifax 4100 Fax machine. I may have pulled the paper cathrudge out to abruptly because a 3/4 spring was dislodged from somewhere - I have not identified where it belongs. As a...


best guess is it belongs under the paper lift plate in your paper tray, remove the paper tray and all the paper, there should be a metal paper lift plate in the paper tray, these are typically spring loaded to lift the paper into place. lift the plate and check the underside for the location of the spring, there is usually a retainer of some sort to hold the spring in place. once the spring is in place the tray should feed correctly.

Hope this is of some help.

Copier jams after making one copy


Is the jam Physical? (Damaged lead edge where it may have caught some thing)
Is the jam Timing (paper if perfect, it just stopped.)
If it is Physical then you need to look for the obstruction, paper clip, staple, or small piece of paper. Check very carefully, remove any foreign matter and retry.

If it is a timing jam, the start by removing the paper, check inside the the paper feed area for foreign material, fan the paper and carefully reinstall it, making sure it is the right size paper for the paper cassette. if it has movable guides in the tray, be sure they are firmly against the paper on all sides.

Close up the machine and try again.

Hope this helps.

Laser printer does not print


Hi there it may just be that the paper tray springs are not pushing the paper higher enough not making contact with the paper detect sensor arm. Or the sensor arm is broken and will need replacing. Check the tray springs also check the sensor arm you will see it if you remove the cassette and look inside there will be a black plastic lever hanging down when you put paper in this lever should go up as the paper acts as a barrier thus telling the machine that there is paper in it.

Paper Feed Not Automatically Switching to Multi-Purpose Tray


Sounds like the paper out sensor for the cassette is either broken or jammed. Pull out the cassette tip the machine on its back and you should see a black arm hanging down. This should be able to swing back and fourth freely. Unless it is missing or broken.
