Question about Canon DR-9080C Path-Through Scanner

1 Answer

Canon DR-9080C. When I close the lid, I have to hold it down otherwise I get P00 error. If I do not keep downward pressure on lid, paper jams in output rollers. With pressure on lid, it scans fine.

As long as I keep downward pressure on the lid, it scans fine. Otherwise, the paper jams in the top, output rollers.

    You will need to replace the upper and lower reading and registration rollers. Sometimes you can get by with only the upper rollers which are much easier than the lower ones. These are the black rollers in the feed path...not the consumable rollers. If you are mechanically inclined, you can probable do this yourself. Give me a call if you need a technical walk through.

The problem seem to be the fuser roller unit. If you know how to disassemble it ( it may be hot - take care), examine the pressure roller to see if it has the balance required of it and the 2 bearings holding the top teflon roller in place.Lubricate the 2 bearings and the collar or bushing holding the rollers in place.

Also check the tension springs on each end for even balance.

Paper jam on top tray, can't find any jam

On that machine the hinge in the left corner for the scan assembly breaks and keeps the lid from shutting properly. The hinge is # LP2403001. Otherwise shine a light up the paper path from below and see if there's a paper scrap inside.

Brother MFC-8840d ADF feed problem

Hi, the left hinge is spring loaded to keep the lid open. This applies a lot of pressure on the pivot point of the hinge (steel pin/plastic hinge) that elongates the plastic holes and raises the lid from the scanner. As the paper leaves the scan window, a ramp next to the scan window sends the paper up to the tray, just past that ramp under the lid is a lip that guides the paper to the tray. With the hinge stretched, the lip is too high and catches the end of the paper at the rear only, and jams the paper. If you press on the cover (with the new hinge) and it does not catch then you have installed a bad hinge. Also ensure that the top part of the hinge is on the guide pins under the cover.

I pulled the paper jam out, now printer will not print

Switch the printer off, remove the back cover, now you will see rubber rollers, try turning them slowly either upwards or downwards, if they move freely then proceed to the next step. Look for any paper or any loose pieces that are stuck between the rollers and casing, if so then remove it from the printer.

Close the casing at the back,Switch on the printer, now open the front of the printer, the lid should be pushed slightly upwards, you will see a clear ribbon and a round rubber bar, also you will notice the printer cartridges moving to the side as you open the lid of that printer. If the cartridges did not move back to the one side, it means that the guidance rod is dirty and sticky, even if it did move to the side, and you heard the grinding noise, take a piece of paper towel, wipe the metal rod clean, now take some clear vaseline, gently apply it to the length of the shaft / rod, now close the lid and open the lid after powering the printer. If the problem persist, it could mean that the roller gear is worn, this is situated on the one side of the round rubber feeder / roller. Try moving the roller with your thumbs, up or down. Is it jammed? Y then replace or have it repaired. N Close the lid, insert the paper and press the paper feeder button, did it load correct? Y then it is fixed, if not get back to me asap

Ruppled printed paper cannot exit output tray

you need do follow steps:
1) check fuser unit, the fuser hot roller is hot or not? if not the fuser heater fail.
2) check hot roller should spin with the pressure roller which is against hot roller, and check there is no gap between them, and also nothing pieces paper obstruct there, because if it losts pressure balance that jam should be occured there.
3) check the output roller after fuser unit(if there is), check them are spin or not, this roller kit use for pull the paper goes out the tray. if not spin means the roller drive belt or gear loosen.
3) check paper sensor that is micro swtch around pulling roller or output area and to clean it (could be a optical sensor).
hope help you something fixed, please take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks! keep in touch your question

Paper will not go through output rollers - jams at crumples

ok, in this case you need do:
1) check the roller before the fuser and after it some roller old not enough firction and pressure balance
2) check the fuser press roller it could not has good tough to fuser surface, it should be no gap at all and good pressure balance on the fuser surface
3) check the fuser cleaner which maybe too dirty, or change new one if you have the parts.
4) fuser unit maybe too old if printing pagers over its life cycle
hope this help you and please ask me any time.

Try and clean the rubber rollers with Isopropyl alcohol. Do not use any solvents.

Canon DR-3080cii paperjam

The 3 paper sensors are located along the center of the paper path. They are: Registration (lever type) on the bottom between separation & registration. Look for lever damage or torn paper. Scan Start (reflective) on the top between registration & front reading roller. Clean the sensor window with qtip & alcohol. Delivery (lever) at the eject roller. Same as reg, but harder to see due to location.The feed roller exchange kit is 6915A001. The rollers in this machine are not considered user replaceable.

Paper keeps getting jammed in MP460

I had the same paper feed grabbing problem on pixma MP 610 printers - take a flashlight and look down into the feed rollers inside - deep - I found a paperclip in one and a hair clip in another - you need a pair of very fine pincer pliers to extract so you dont damage the roller assembly's made of plastic - and voila no more misfeeds and grabbing on the right side - hint - dont put anything on top of the printers because when you lift the scanner cover, it nicely slides anyting on top into the paper feed assembly and results in a jam
