  1. Repost. I was wondering if anyone was familiar with troubleshooting the
    paperfeed function? It won't engage the paperfeed during normal
    operation or when the actual paperfeed button is pressed. Thanks. Mark.

    the condition of the rubber rollers for the paper feed. - Reinhart

    Mark-

    This may not apply to your printer. I have an Apple Color StyleWriter 2200
    that is mechanically almost identical to the Canon BJC-70, 80 or 85. (I also
    have the BJC-85.)

    The CSW 2200 is notorious for paper feed problems. According to all I've read
    in the newsgroups, the problem is basically rubber roller surfaces that have
    become slick or glazed. Therefore they can not interact with paper to
    push/pull/shove it to where it is supposed to go.

    One approach to fixing the problem is to use an automotive product that is
    intended for vinyl upholstery, steering wheels or rubber tires. I don't know
    the name of such a product, but it is supposed to add back the plasticizer that
    has been lost (absorbed by paper?) over time. It is reported to renew or
    deglaze the rubber surfaces, giving them back their gripping capability. The
    name "Renuzit" comes to mind, but may be a totally different product.

    This is one of those projects I plan to do one of these days, but have never
    gotten around to trying it with my old printer.
