My name is Will, first time posting. Looks like a great wayto get help. I have a KM4035 that was working fine then one day the clientcalls and says it is not recognizing eight and half x eleven paper in the SRDF2doc feeder. I have the 4 drawers set at 8.5, 11, 14 and 17. If you slide thepaper guides all the way to the center it will read five and half inch but assoon as you move them any amount it defaults to the 11 drawer. If you put alegal in it defaults to 11x17 because it will not recognize the 8.5 measurement.I cleaned the slider VR board under the guides with no change. I tried anotherfeeder and no luck there. I put the problem doc feeder on another machine andit works fine. I noticed in the SRDF manual there was a simulation 244 thatallows you to check the VR board readings. I did and they are supposed to givea numerical reading from 49 to 256. I get a reading that starts at 149 with theguides closed and goes to 250 range with them wide open, same way with 2different feeders. When I put the feeder on another machine I get a goodreading. I had previously downloaded current firmware but did the machine againthinking it might help, no luck. I cleared the machine using simulation 20.Put back all the settings and again no luck. I am by no means a super tech butcan usually work things through. It appears to me the problem is in the mainboard. Since I have never seen this before, Im looking for any other thoughts.If anyone has any experience on this problem or any other suggestions I would greatlyappreciate the help.

Typically there is a simulation to calibrate the width VR. What the machine does is store values for two positions. I'll see if I can find the sim for you. =^..^=

Blackcat4866 Have you had any luck finding a simulation to reset the numbers on the RADF2 slide rails, Will

I am still wondering if someone knows how to reset the VR numerical numbers for the SRDF2. The doc feeder does not read 8.5x11 paper. When sidrails are move they rewad form 144 to 256 when they should read 49 to 256.

That VR is supposed to vary from 49 when closed to 256 fully open.

At 8 1/2" width you should be seeing 50 to 146
At 11" width you should be seeing 197.632 to 197.720

It's common for those VRs to develop corrosion, and when you slide the guides outward the values can jump around, or drop off completely. You'll probably end up replacing the VR. On this model, I don't see a sim to calibrate the VR.

Sorry for the slow response. =^..^=
