    TA 300I Lower left door paper latch broke. Door doesn't close causing jams

    On the left lower door, the latch hook "stub" holding the latch hook on one side of the Vertical paper path assembly broke. It looks to me that you have to change the whole paper path assembly to fix it. Is the any other way to fix this without buying the whole assembly ? I am not even sure where I can get one.. Any help is so appreciated. Thanks so much !!

    If it were me, I would dig through my cornucopia of shoulder screws and find a couple various 6mm diameter board spacers, inside threaded to 3mm or 4mm. I would remove whatever components were in the way, then insert a 3mm or 4mm screw from the outside of the frame, then a flat washer, then the frame, then the board spacer on the inside. I would put a drop or two of Loctite or cyanoacetate on the screw threads to keep it secure, then quickly snug it up.

    That's all assuming that the post is ~6mm and there remains a hole in the frame. What do you think?

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    I sure like that Idea... I am not above doing stuff like that for sure. (That would be my choice) Turns out the transport assembly is a couple hundred bucks and I think that what the customer is doing though...
