We are using plain letter paper, and have tried different brands of plain paper, but to no avail. We've also checked various print preferences and no settings are out of the ordinary. Anybody else experience this? It can't be an isolated incident since it happens on three different LJ 4000's.

Separation Pad for MP tary on LJ 4000 < less than $3. You could call:
888-558-5277, ext 122 to order.
It is not that difficult to replace either. Just replaced two this week.

Yes. The pad + carrier alone is part number RG5-5281-000. I've changed several without removing the Tray 1 pickup ... cheaper, and you don't need to match versions with the registration assembly.
It can be done by removing the outer and inner MP trays, plus the Tray 1 roller for more room and visibility. CAREFULLY compress the 3 compression springs, and remove them. (The tricky part is not having the springs fly off to lose themselves! Prudent to cannibalize old Tray 1 pickup assemblies for spare springs.) Then you can bend the carrier arms off their pivots, and remove the pad carrier. A hemostat and pusher end of an old IBM springhook work well with positioning the springs.
The new design makes it possible to snap a new pad into the carrier without all the above, so you will be facilitating future replacements.

Your idea of using cork sounds verrrry interesting. I'm frankly tired of replacing sep pads in our 5L,6L,1100, etc. printers over and over again.
Care to write up a "howto" for this? I would love to try it!
