Question about Xerox DocuPrint P8EX Laser Printer
The Xerox p8ex transports the paper for about 2 inches and then stops. The problem started when I cleaned the printer. I have taken some obvious parts out of the printer to remove the dust and toner from the unreachable spots. I have also tried cleaning the excentrical rubber roll that collects the paper from the tray by turning it. When I put everything together again and inserted a brand new toner cartridge, the printer seemed to be working properly, but when I tried to print a page it stopped after 2 inches. It doesn't transport the paper any further. Before I start to order spare parts randomly, I would like to know if there is anything I can to to repair it. And if not, which part should I replace? Thanks in advance.

You have to spin them backward to get them into a good position to clean them, They will resist you, but just take it slow and clean them with alcohol or formula 409 type cleaner.
But what will often cause jams on that machine is the seperation pad that is located on the paper tray itself. It will get very slick and allow 2 or more pieces of paper to feed, It is a small gray to black pad on the middle front of the tray, about 1/4 inch wide and and inch or so long, If it is smoothe scuff it with some scotch brite then order one or two.
Google a business called "the parts drop" and call Britt, they should have the pads and rollers at a fair price.
