Copier down Good morning, Our copier has had one clutch replaced and the rest cleaned. But the paper gets stuck around the first turn and "A" is blinking. It used to stick the first few times we ran it each day and then worked fine. Now it gets stuck and doesn't work. Our local repairman said it is a complicated electrical issue and needs a factory repair. It has made 95,593 copies and it over 8 years old but we cannot really afford a new one. It also has a coin changer attached, an XCP 5500 Escrow. The machine is a Ricoh FT 4015 How do I find someone close by to look at it and fix it at a reasonably cost? Thanks, Becky Stouten Library Media Specialist, Mounds View High School

Understanding how an image (copy) is made might help.
The drum goes thru a Basic process like this; charge,exposure,transfer,clean.
the paper only comes into play during the transfer stage. Since the drum has a static charge the paper gets attracted to the drum and needs to move at the same speed as the drum. After a small distance the paper has to be repelled from the drum with the print (sometimes called Detack), this can be accomplished by a Detack wire or a reverse of polarity applied to the paper.
If this doesnot happen paper stays on drum (jam).
So you need to see if the jam you remove has any ink on it, this would indicate a transfer issue maybe a detack problem.
If it is clean (never reaches the drum) then a paper feed problem is indicated.
Now you need to understand paper!
Some paper is long grain other is short grain. This is what gives the stack of paper a curl as you hold it by the edges (most paper has an arrow on the wrap telling which way to run paper (it means curl up / curl down basically). The problem with grain is usually when some cuts down 11 x 17 paper to save money to give you 8 1/2 x 11.
How do you tell grain fold paper in half long edge to long edge run your fingers down the edge if it is smooth you have long grain. Most copiers feed the long edge therefore long grain is what you need . If when you fold in half the edge is rough, then fold another top to bottom if seem is smooth you have short grain, This works better on top edge feeding copiers / printers, these are unusual since most they are slowest (mostly diazo printer).

Since you seem to have problems early make sure you remove paper every night and store flat, note the curl direction beacuse if when you put it in in the morning it might change curl (teacup).

Some times old machine use rubber rollers to start initial fee, these you could try to clean with some finger nail polish remover. This will eventually dry out the rubber but if it helps then maybe you only need to replace the rollers.

That was a quick lesson hope it helps.

Canon ir2016 jams papers under registration clutch. the clutch runs on power up but does not run when copig or printing help

This seems to be a common problem for the Canon ir 20 xx series machines. The problem is having machine indicating paper jams on the left hand side of the machine. When you open the left cover you do sometimes find paper stuck on entering the fuser unit. The main problem, and loads of these machines with these problems have been fixed, are the half moon pickup rollers! Clean the pickup rollers or even better, replace them and you will get the machine working 100%!! To confirm this try copying from the machine using the manual feed tray. You will never get a paper jam. This fault is due to incorrect pickup resulting in timing problem and thus getting paper jams! Good luck!

The display reads paper jam, but if there is paper there it is so small I can't see it. How do I get into the printer to remove any paper remnants? The printer is a Canon Pixma MX310

Hello! Usually when this happens, something is stuck in the printer, or a piece of paper is jammed.
Try to remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.
If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of card stock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.
Hope that helps!

Continuous paper jam light

Will it turn both ways? you may have the roller on the other way around not meshing on the shaft properly. Therefore not turning, and or the clutch is doing the opposite to what it should be doing.

HP 2600n Ironing transfer paper jammed around top roller

It is probably stuck permanently, and the fuser will need to be replaced. I believe the "fuser replacement" instructions are in the manual.

Paper fold

What size paper are you using LTR or LRT-R? You may need the regisration clucth & the pre-regisation clutch to solve the problem, it is a timing problem with the two clutchs. If you are using LTR size paper and it shows up try runing the paper the LTR-R direction, the copier runs slower with that size paper and it may off set the timing. You may also have to clean or replace the transfer lift unit, only if you get a error code. Good Luck

Sharp AL-800 Paper Feed

Is this something that has been getting worse or just happen at once? If it just appeared it good be something in the paper tray stopping it from liftting or something behind the paper tray or in the paper path of the copier. If it has been slowly happen try to clean the paper pickup rollers with WD-40 and a rag and clean the rubber only. If that works you done, but if it say's to add paper you may have a broken paper present sensor. The jams could also be the paper feed clutch is worn out. Worse case use the bypass tray. Good Luck!!

Copier Failure Konica

If there are no obvious paper pieces stuck, you could have either a problem with the dirty or worn rollers in the ADU, a dirty or defective sensor, or most likely a clutch problem in the ADU. Likely will require a service tech on site to repair to no obvious defects are seen.

My copier makes a noisy sound

Check the crumpled paper. If it has an image, it has reached the drum and is crumpling at the fuser unit (part that gets hot). If that is the case the fuser gear and drive gear need to be replaced.
