Having problems with paper bin feeding more than one sheet at a time, as anyone overcome this problem. Have had this printer for some years. Thanks Grandbob

No joke. The high humidity makes paper stick together. In Burma, we used to keep paper for the copier in a hot cupboard to keep it dry. Basically, just a cupboard with a light-bulb in it that was left switch on all the time.

Keep paper in its wrapper until you want to print.

I had this problem 2 years ago; it's a known problem with the paper separator.

click here do an excellent repair kit for around 30 dollars, which includes very clear video instructions. They say that the replacement components will last much longer than the original ones. I have no reason to doubt that as I've used my printer hard for the last 2 years with no further problems
