Printer taking several pages instead of just one

The paper feed is grabbing too many pages at once. How do I limit the feed?

Start off by cleaning the Pickup Roller

If that doesn't cure the problem you'll need to replace the Roller as it's gone hard and is no longer capable of working correctly.

Of course this depends on the fact that the paper is Dry as if it's damp it will stick together. Have you tried using some paper from an unopened Ream?

Yup wet tip of rag with isopropyl and hold it to the roller..

..while turning on the printer or running the feed. Hold rag tight to finger tip so rag doesn't get drawn in, and go light at first. You can use quality tech cotton swab tips too.

You are looking to get loose dry rubber particles away from roller surface down to where roller has some grip against paper. Change position of rag and repeat until the roller has some grip.
