Xerox XC540 copier fails to feed bland sheet

Copier warms up, locates top lid unit to home position and internals operate, waiting for the sheet feeder to present a new sheet...then faults out with 'paper jam' light flashing.

Depressing the plunger located near the small pcb to right of sheet feed mechinism pulls sheet in only to stop when releasing the plunger.

Sounds like there is something not pushing down the plunger, or may need to adjust switch to make it higher.

How to replace toner cartidge of the Xerox Copier 5225 machine?

The toner cartridge is located in the upper centre of the front of the copier. Open the front door, slide out the cartridge until you see the top handle, whilst pulling out hold the top handle to avoid the cartridge tilting and leaking any excess toner inside the machine.
Before inserting your new cartridge, gently shake it from side to side to ensure even distribution of the toner. Slide the new cartridge in until you here a click, then close the front door. Your copier may go into a calibration routine for a minute or so if the developer has been starved of toner. If it hasn't, it will be ready to copy straight away.
For a quick user guide on the copier go to
Hope this helps.

E2 error code on Xerox work centre xd series 120f copier

e2 is a paper jam problem. check that the paper guides in the cassette are positioned aginst the paper properly. Also remove the toner and drum cartridge. Clean all rubber rollers that you can get to with a damp cloth ( water). You are especially trying to clean the upper and lower registration rollers that "pinch" the paper. I hope that this helps.
