Abstract

This invention discloses that in a media processing system, e.g., a electrophotographic copier or printer, the condition of the media be monitored so that if the media becomes damaged, the media processing system can be halted before the damaged media enters the next stage of the process, thereby minimizing the severity of the jam that would otherwise have to be cleared and possibly avoiding damage to the sub-system that would have encountered the damaged media.
