    Ecosys M6535 CIDN Paper Tray issue

    Ecosys M6535 CIDN

    Machine has 2 paper trays plus bypass. When paper is full it is fine when it gets to about a 1/4 tray left it says it is empty. The motor lifts but paper does not register.
    This top paper tray is a little hard to close, but since the motor lifts I don't think this is part of the problem.

    I had to replace the paper detect actuator and spring to resolve this on one of these machines. Everything looked fine with old actuator but would not work until replaced with new.

    Is there a loud click or "clunk" when paper tray is inserted, or when the tray gets to 1/4 level? I've had the lift gear break, making it difficult to close tray and false empty condition. better eat your Wheaties AND pack a lunch if this is the case ... you're in for a half-day procedure.

    If you phrase your inquiry properly, you will get the answers you seek...

    Good Luck ... You'll need it! HAHAHA!

    We cheat and just replace the driven cassette with the spring loaded style. Works just fine

    That's a good idea. What tray do you use in place of it? We have had this issue of the broken gear in several of the machines. I KNOW this is not by the book by any-means but our shop tech started to dremel out the plastic where that lift gear is located. He dremels out the plastic, removes the gear and replaces with a new gear and puts the piece of plastic back in place and this has worked with no issues. I'm sure Kyocera would frown upon this method... I did at first, too... but it works. The advantage to his method is if it breaks again out in the field it is basically a 10 min. fix. But, I think the tray idea is much better.
    I've had to replace the spring and actuator as well.. it's a pain! Bring the MFP back to the shop and give yourself all day.

    you can use the CT-3100 instead of the CT-3130, you have to snip off a little nub on the left side

    but i think we hijacked this thread because none of this concerns the m6535 model

    spring loaded tray...

    hot damn... I love you people...

    ok....

    I did not have the benefit of the knowledge here... so here is what I did...

    I ordered a tray... the roller assemblies... and the spring...

    fitted the tray... fitted the roller assemblies and could not get see getting the spring in without taking appart the frame...

    so I did a little engineering...

    since I had the old tray... I could play with it since its destined for the trash... I began playing...

    1. used a chisel to remove the plastic that holds the metal tongue of the tray down on the right...
    2. bend the thin piece of metal attached to the tray on the right till it sits vertical... (not the T but a small piece of metal on the right attached to the T)
    3. make sure the metal tongue that rises moves freely which means chisel off as much plastic from the guide on right as needed.
    4. twist the T part of the metal tongue so that the left side is angled higher.. this way it hits the sensor arm...
    5. test it...
    6. you know you are done... when the machine will copy with 1 sheet or 50 without jamming...

    personally I like the suggestion of the spring loaded tray... its a lot more elegant than my solution...
