How can I sync paper feed gears?

I had to disassemble the printer carriage and unjam it from the Service Center Unit. Now that I have that fixed, how do I Sync the Printer Drive Rollers and actuator gear so it feeds properly? There is a mechanical Actuator Gear that when engaged drives the Paper Lift Plate which raises the paper to the Paper Feed Rollers. But it's out of Sync, so it either stays up when manually raising it via gears or it stays down, which means the paper is too far away to get pulled into the the printer assembly. HOW DO I CORRECT THIS PAPER FEED PROBLEM??

You must clean rollers.

The rubber rollers that pull the paper from the tray may have some dust.

SOURCE: service manual for the HP 6110 all in one printer.

A metric allen wrench set (small sizes) is needed to remove the drive mechanism from the document feeder, then the parts can be disassembled. Unfortunately, the drive rollers, made of rubber were damaged by a small metal piece - (staple?) that was fed into the machine. Removal of the metal piece almost restored the drive. It needs to be lightly snded to remove the marks made by the staple. Thanks anyway.

HP J4680 sounds like a machine gun before printing. It's still printing but that noise can't be good.


There are two common causes for these symptoms,

The first is that there is some paper caught at one end of the carriage , if this is the reason, the noise will be due to the carriage belt slipping on the drive pulley. open the printer and thoroughly check inside, I reccomend using a small flashlight. sometimes the paper will be black with soaked up ink.


If there is definitely no paper in there, this model is also prone to breaking the plastic gears in the purge unit and occaisionally the paper feed unit. these parts are not easy to replace. so your best bet would be a quote from a service center

Carriage jam, can you help?


1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Hp 4100 paper is jammed between rollers the back panel should come off? and then how do I get fuser out to unjam paper


Hi Jacque,
I gather the paper has got into the fuser and cannot get into the output bin. Few things...
1. Clean output rollers. Are rollers moving?
2. Check gears on the fuser unit. Any broken or worn gears?
3. Check default paper size setting in printer, paper size setting on tray, paper size setting in printer driver and document page.
4. Leave the back door open. Does the printer still jams? If it does, see it could be paper pick up problem. Use different trays or the manual feed. Also the fuser unit could be the problem.
5. All else fails, replace the output assembly.

PAPER JAM


SUGGESTION #1 The print carriage might be jammed. Follow these steps to correct the problem:
  1. With the power on, lift the print cartridge access door. The print carriage should move to the access area located on the right. If the print carriage stays all the way left, reset the unit by unplugging the then plugging in the power cord. If the carriage still does not move to the right, continue with the steps below.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
  3. Remove both print cartridges.
  4. Push the print carriage slightly to the left and then to the right to verify that the print carriage is not jammed. If the print carriage will not move, check for obstructions under and around the carriage.
  5. Close the print cartridge access door.
  6. Plug in the power cord.
  7. When the " Insert Print Cartridges " message displays, open the print cartridge access door and insert the print cartridges. Verify that both cartridges are seated correctly and lock into position.
SEGGUSTION #2 cleaning rollers Over time dust and paper fibers will accumulate on the paper feed rollers. This can cause paper feed problems. Follow the steps below to clean the rollers: Figure 3: Paper feed rollers c00212278.jpg
  1. Turn off the all-in-one and unplug the power cord.
  2. Remove the rear access door (as describe above in this document).
  3. Clean each roller using a clean lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water (distilled water preferred). Rotate the rollers to clean the entire surface.
  4. Verify that the paper feed rollers on the rear access door are clean and rotate easily.
  5. Re-seat the rear access door.
  6. Plug in the power cord and turn on the all-in-one.
If these suggestions don't fix the problem feel free to write back to me. Try to be a little more specific i.e does paper feed properly, error message shows with paper/without paper or both, do any of the lights flash when this happens, have you tried diiferent paper sizes ot types. Have you taken it apart to check for any obstructions?
