How to solve multiple paper loading problem in hp5L and hp6L laser printer


How You Can Test Electronic Components Like A Professional!
Have you ever encountered before the problem of having multiple paper loading in your HP LaserJet 5L 
and 6L? Do you know that this is caused by a defective separation pad where it's rubber has worn out. 
The function of separation pad is to control or allow paper to go through it, one at a time. If it spoilt, few 
sheets of paper will be pulled instead of one whenever you send a printer command. This sometimes 
will caused the papers to jammed up. For the worst case, it will spoil your heating/fuser sleeve. The 
price of a heating element is more expensive than a separation pad. 
There is one temporary way that you can use to solve the problem stated without buying a new 
separation pad. The process of removing and changing the separation pad is just easy and fast. 
Firstly, remove the rubber pad from the holder. Be careful while you're removing because you might
torn the rubber into pieces. Secondly, clean the holder to prevent any dirt or glue sticking on it. After 
that, apply a small amount of super glue that is just enough to cover the full surface of the rubber pad.
Finally, reversed the rubber pad and stick it back to the holder. Please ensure that the surface should 
face upward before you stick the rubber pad. It will work as good as a new one.
*Note: If you are servicing the printer for your customer, I'll recommend you to replace a new one for 
         them unless you’re maintaining and servicing your own laser printer.
