Abstract

In a xerographic machine, the photo-optical sensors on the Duplex Automatic Document Handler (DADH) become contaminated with paper dust and can cause a paper misfeed signal. When such misfeed signals occur, a Technical Representative cleans the sensors during a service call. Two approaches are currently used: 1) the DADH is disassembled in order to gain cleaning access to the sensors, or 2) a polyester sheet, with a brush like material attached to it, is manually fed through the document handler to clean the sensors.
