A possibility is: right click on your printer, chose <Documents defaults> and in <feature> tab (or in other tab-depends by your driver) check if there is set number of copies more than one.

These top feed printers wear down the "paper separation pads" very rapidly.

If the printers are pulling multiple sheets, then essentially your best option is to repace the paper separation pads and the paper feed roller (if that looks bad too).

Another alternative, is to clean the pads with 70% rubbing alcohol (do not use the stronger % as it will ruin the rubber).

If you do not have any experience taking apart these printers, then you should probably take them to a repair shop.The parts are not expensive, but labor will add to it. Determine whether it is more cost-effective to replace these with another model (and do not choose top-feeder printers -- paper is best when it feeds in from a flat tray).

Answer #2 is absolutely correct. This is a well known and documented problem with the 5L & 6L. I have dozens of them and they are a nightmare.
