I can easilly repair this problem by disassembling the back portion of the feeder, pulling the gear back into position, and reassembling. I've had to repair this 3 times in the last year, and the printer doesn't get heavily used. Please see attached photos: 1st the gear too far back along the shaft as to not engage, 2nd in the correct position. Is there a solution to th
