Hi,
WELCOME TO JUST ANSWER!! My name isXXXXX will assist you to solve or identify your problem.

If the paper feed roller is dirty, paper is not fed properly because the paper feed roller slips. Cleaning the paper feed roller could resolve the paper feeding problem. Please follow the instructions below to clean the Paper Feed Rollers directly from the unit.



  1. Ensure that the machine is powered on and remove any paper from the auto sheet feeder or the cassette.

  2. Use the <Feed Switch> button to select the paper source where you do the paper feed roller cleaning. Click for here additional information.

  3. Press the <HOME> (A) button.

  8. To check if the rollers are clean, load a sheet of Letter-sized plain paper in the same paper source you selected in step 2.
