Did you check the sensor in the ADF? there has to be a lever that moves when inserting a paper in ADF to let it know paper is present. is it stuck? it should have a spring action, so it returns to its positiion when paper is no longer there.

Errors with my Printer/scaner


Jessica:

This could be one of a few things... First, Windows 8 is a completely different animal from Windows XP! Try reloading your printer driver in Windows 8. If this doesn\'t work, you need to clean the paper pickup rollers at the front of the printer (where the paper first feeds into the machine. I use a Q-tip moistened (not sopping wet) with rubbing alcohol... gently scrub the whole pickup roller and then the feed roller next to it. Check carefully (with a flashlight) for any shards of paper that might be blocking the paper path. There is also a sensor flag (small finger of plastic) sticking up that the paper must hit to let the printer know that the paper is feeding through. If you do not see the sensor flag, it is either jammed or has been broken off when a piece of paper was pulled backward out of the paper feed area. First reload the printer driver, and try to print. If it doesn\'t print, check and clean the rollers and look for the sensor flag.

Unplug the device and let sit overnight. This will reset configuration and should fix the problem. If it still persists, contact the manufacturer's support. They will be able to help, especially if they are faulty sensors in the machine.

I show a paper jam with no paper jam existing. I opened all the doors where paper flows thru, rolled the rollers and still same message.


Look inside the system and you should see a guide that the paper goes through. It might have a flag (small piece of plastic) that is stuck or has a scrap of paper wedged preventing it from moving. It is also a good idea to blow canned air along the paper path - paper dust can cause sensors to give false jams messages. After the canned air, unplug the system from the wall for a few minutes, make sure all the paper drawers are full and closed, then restart the system.

I have an Intellifax 2820 and there is an error message of paper jam inside... I have cleaned all paper out of machine... please help me


A jam sensor may be stuck by a paper scrap. Try manually pushing a sheet of paper through the machine IN THE DIRECTION IT IS NORMALLY FED. This may force out any stuck scraps. The jam sensors are usually located where the paper feeds and where it exits the machine. Also, make sure ALL ACCESS PANELS YOU OPENED TO CLEAR JAMS ARE CLOSED PROPERLY. Otherwise, the jam code will not clear.

We can receive but won't take the paper to send a fax out


You have an ADF paper feed problem, try taking some rubbing alchoial and clean the ADF paper feed tires, This helps the paper to feed into the scanner unit so the fax can be sent. I have also seen part of the ADF feed unit broken.
Does the paper feed in but not transmitt out?

Paper will not feed via ADF in Canon laser class 510 fax. keeps saying reset document when we try to fax or copy using either ADF or scanner. Briefly received error E337 (or could have been E377).


there is probably something in the paper path, double check and make sure no piece of paper is in it.
there is a small lever in the adf this is the sensor it should be able to move freeely and have a spring action, is it stuck?
are the guides set, and set to Letter?

Hard reset to clear paper jam error


Most likely you need to carefully go through the paper path and look for the locations of all the paper path sensors.
You probably have one stuck on the frame or a spring came off the flag and its not actuating properly.
Follow the paper path carefully from the feed rolls out to the exit. I am sure you will find a sensor not operating properly.
Actuate every one and make sure they have no resistance and that they return to the proper position.

Feeds two sheets on top of each other through feeder when transmitting.


The problem is not the sensor, itis the rollers that feed and seperate the paper.
the sensor only tells it there is paper, in the machine. then there is a tire that feeds the paper and another that stops the others from feeding at the same time. If the tire ( on some models it's a pad that looks like it has a rubber or a cork.) is old it looses it's grip and let's the paper slip by. Try cleaning with alcohol, must be replaced eventually.

Machine won't draw the paper in to send the fax


Technically, your machine is jammed. The paper is jamming as it exits the feed area, and enters the machine. Not being specifically familiar with that model, but rather based on experience with other simular machines with like problems, I would say you should look for 3 possible causes... Most machines have, shortly into the paper path, and generally in the area you're indicating, some sort of sensor switch, whether it be photo-electric, or a mechanically activated toggle, that senses and registers the lead edge of the paper so the machine knows it did feed. This switch could be knocked out of place, or simply dirty, and not sensing the lead edge of the paper within a certain period of time after the machine registers the feed had been actuated. A second possible cause would be (and you may be able to visually verify this) is that usually, in these types of machines, there is some sort of pressure or "retard" pad/roller in conjunction with the feed roller. If this isn't working right, the machine may be feeding more than one sheet at a time, and becoming jammed in the paper path path area due to "thickness". A third possible issue could be an unremoved scrap of paper from a previous jam (or a staple/paperclip/piece of rubber-band/or any other foriegn object, as I've seen them all) still remaining in a thin and obscure position of the paper path blocking the paper's progress to the afformentioned switch. Those are the most likely, but probably not the only possible, causes of the problem you are exoeriencing.
