    958 ADF lid not closing securely

    Anyone have the 958/C658 ADF not holding the Left panel assy door closed enough?

    it works find if you push down on it so the gears mesh better.

    The shaft the lids hook holds onto is part of the frame so ive had to bend it down more so when the hook latches on it its meshing the gears more firmly together.

    is there a bulletin for this that i missed?

    Have you ever seen an e Studio 287cs? It's an Okidata rebadged as a Toshiba.

    Same deal with the DF (E779). You can hear the gears that drive the pickup in the cover disengaging. On the Oki there are a couple of different approaches:

    -There's a new style inner cover that has a 50/50 chance of solving your issue.
    -I usually oval out the holes where the inner cover attaches to the outer, then shift the inner cover over, for better gear engagement. 100% success with that.
    -Most endusers that have this model figure out that if you put a ream or two of paper on top of the DF cover it feeds.

    Now I'll be interested to look at the 958 DF. =^..^=
    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.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    common problem and your fix IS the fix.

    If people pull up on the door while moving the machine or trying to open it without unlocking this is the result.

    saw this and videoed it on one of the first 958's sold in the state
    If at first you don't succeed, try the way I told you how to do it in the first place.

    Yeah I remember, just thought they would of released a modified hook or something by now.

    They can't do much to the pin as it's welded on but changing the hooks seems like the best option.
