If there is not something jammed in the paper path, like a paper clip or staple, check the left rear hinge for the scanner, when it breaks it holds the rear side up and paper jams...

How hi should a humming bird feeder be?


Hi Andrew.
Hang the feeder approximately 5 feet above the ground, Make sure there is no foliage underneath that would encourage unwelcome guests, like mice, squirrels and even cats, to feed on the sugar water. If you wish to hang multiple hummingbird feeders, locate the feeders at least 10 to 12 feet apart.2.

Can not get paper to shred


Check the Power Ensure that the shredder top is firmly placed in the shredder basket if the unit will not operate. If the top is not in place the feeder will not work and accept any paper. Make sure it is firmly plugged into the wall outlet and that the outlet is active. Rest the Shredder Let the shredder cool down if the shredder has been running continuously for a long time. It may have overheated and needs to be left in the off position for at least 30 minutes to reset. Verify the basket is empty or not too full as that will cause the shredder to deactivate. Clear Paper Jam Rotate the shredder into "Auto" and reverse to loosen any paper jam that is stopping the gears. Pull out any papers that are sticking out from the shredder feeder. If there is no progress then unplug the shredder and remove the shredder top from the bin. Turn it upside down and use tweezers to free any paper that is blocking the gear. Auto Mode Not Working Select the "Auto" option and feed paper into the center of the feeder tray if the shredder is only working in reverse mode. The sensor is located in the middle of the feeder tray and could be blocked by jammed paper. Use an index card to firmly unblock any paper that could be blocking the sensor.

When making copies, auto document feeder picks up paper and rollers squeal but paper gets stuck on underside. If you lift the lid about an inch the paper will feed through. HP Model L7780


open the top cover, on the very left there is a part that can be removed (running front to back) I believe you will see a scrap of paper iunder there. remove the paper, replace the part and try again

The printer keeps telling me it's out of paper, which it isn't


1> Open the sheet feeder cover and pull out the paper support.

Set paper, aligning the right edge of the paper to the cover guide with the paper's print side facing up.

Pinch and slide the paper guide to the paper's left side.

Note: Make sure to set paper lengthwise. Setting Credit Card sized paper long-side down by mistake may cause a paper jam.

Pull down the paper output tray supporting with both hands.

Pull out the extension completely.

Ensure that the Power lamp and the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp light.

Note: If the Cassette lamp lights, press the Paper Feed switch to light the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp.
If the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp does not light even after pressing the Paper Feed switch, Paper Source in the printer driver may be set to the setting other than Paper Feed Switch.

The paper feeder wont do it's job,will not feed paper . Makes loud noise but no action, then screen asks to load paper.


The feeder on this model has 1 weak mounting place for the gears that drive the feed roller. The plastic stud that holds the gear will break off of the frame and cause the noises you hear and no paper feed. The only fix is to replace the sheet feeder assembly, about $30.00 for the part.

Canon 1023if auto feeder not working. Says check


The document feeder has multiple sensors in it. sometimes they hang up and stay stuck out of place. Other sensors might get paper dust on the face of the sensor. If you can open the document cover, locate the sensors and see if any are ajar or the sensor flag fell out of place. Also look to see if a paper is stuck in any of the paper path areas. Not seeing the machine it is hard to say if it fed paper and says check document, if it did, clean the feed wheels with a wet paper towel.

Paper feeder not working


That printer has a feed switch which changes from the top feeder to the drawer below, the little light tells you whether to put paper in the top or bottom. either make sure both are loaded or switch to the one that has paper.

I have a message coming up that I don't know what it means.


ADF = Auto Document Feeder (Usually on top)

RADF = Rear Auto Document Feeder, (On the back)

Something is stuck in one of these, a piece of paper, foam, paperclip, twist tie . . . it could be anything. Follow the squealing sound and check the paper feeder rollers.

Find what is in the way and remove it.

Cheers.
