    Ricoh MP201 spf The Automatic Document Feeder Does Not Pick Up Paper

    Hello,

    when I turn on the Ricoh MP201 spf I can hear the engine, The ADF is working, but when I put the paper on the ADF, it only pick up a little bit of paper but not the whole paper, when I push the button to copy. What is the problem?

    No Error Code appears.

    Thanks

    Your pickup roller could be worn out. Should feel grippy with some texture to it. Same for the feed belt behind it.

    Most likely problem is the Sep tire upward pressure. If the Sep tire has too much upward pressure, paper will not feed. The sep tire uses a metal "spring" which is easily bent. It needs to be adjusted (re-bent)just right so the sep tire barely touches the pick-up tire. This can take several attempts, but I have rarely seen bad tires or clutches.

    I have many man hours on that feeder. lol.

    First thing I usually do is replace the feed, and sep roll as a set. Doing this as a set will save you many trips back, a lot of end users scan a lot now adays...

    If still having issue then I replace the sep pressure spring.

    If that doesn't solve it, then the clutch.

    I have stuck with that order of parts replacement with success for many years.

    Good Luck

    Hi there!
    Never had a clutch-failure on this dfs. But with the introduction of the sep-assy MP 161, the rollers last not so long as in the 1013/1515. Change allways the 3 rollers & the modified spring ( pn B8722251 ). After installing the modified spring put some silicon-grease at the bottom of the spring.
    Greetings...

    jutzt use a little grease with the sep roller spring and bend it a bit so it uses a little less force.
