WONT MAKE A COPY IN TOPFEEDER


Check the connection of the doc feeder to the copier. if you open a cover on the doc feeder does reflect on the copier? Ensure the doc feeder is aligned there is a small magnet right front side of the doc feeder that sits on top of a switch (Can not be seen underneath front plastic the copier when down. Adjustment bolts for the doc feeder is the rear right hinge only.

check document error, no paper jam


It may be a bad hinge on the document feeder. I have seen several times where the left hinge ( when looking at machine from front) does not close all the way. Close the adf and look at the gap between the copier and the adf. The gap should be the same from the front to the back. If the gap is bigger at the rear ( when looking at the left side of the machine) then you need to replace the left hinge. You can also try pushing down on the document feeders' left side as it feeds the paper. if it works while pushing down, then it is the hinge.

I'm getting a "PLACE DOC. FEEDER IN DOWN POSITION" message when I place a document in Doc Feeder input tray of my Toshiba E-Studio 3511 copier. It is down. I have removed and reinstalled the feeder several times. Ideas?


On the rear left side of the copier there should be a black hinged actuator sticking up out of a hole in the panel, directly opposite of that there should be a white plastic tab that pushes that actuator down. If not try taping the actuator down flat with the cover.
