“Printer or Fax Will Not Pull In Paper”

Summary: try Rubber Renew on rubber rollers.
If the roller(s) of your printer or FAX are moving, turning, but the device will not pull in paper, you should buy a bottle of Rubber Renew and use it to clean your rollers. After an extended period of time, rubber rollers will get coated with ink or actually loose their semi-rough texture and thus will not “grab” the paper.
bought my Rubber Renew at Staples, I think, but no matter, I know
it is available on the net or else where. Buy a bottle and using a cloth or
paper towel, apply it to your rollers until there is no trace of ink on
whatever you are using to clean with.
have used Rubber Renew on several bulky printers and a FAX machine and in
each time, Rubber Renew did the job.
Finally, I do not own the patent on Rubber Renew or sell it and I am not saying it will cure every printer or FAX paper-handling problem but it is a decent product that does help in certain situations.
