Re: Photo Paper Jams
Based on your question, my first thought is that you changed the type of photo paper you used starting "this week" (when you first posted your question). If you did, the photo paper size/thickness may not be compatible with your printer.
Otherwise, there may be a problem with the paper sensor. Click on the following link and review the troubleshooting steps, particularly Step 2, to see if that helps:
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.
- Better answers use proper spelling and grammar.
- Provide details, support with references or personal experience.

you need to take all the paper out of the tray and check that a previous jam has not left any paper bits in the gears. then try printing something using a regular piece of paper; if the problem persists, it may be that one of the rollers was damaged during one of the paper jams and is no longer feeding properly.
That's a "paper jam" error that can be fixed by removing all paper and pressing the resume/cancel button. Then replace the paper in the feed chute. The printer can straighten out a crooked feed to a very limited degree. The photo feeder attachment can interfere with a really full 8x11 feed. The i860 is very susceptible to overfilling the 8 1/2 x11 feeder without notice until you try to print. I usually remove the photo feeder until I need to print photos, and keep the regular paper feeder no more than 3/4 full. I pull out the regular paper when printing photos.
You didnt tell us what phtopaper you use. Especially the weight of the paper! Brother printers are known to have probs with paper thicker then 220g. The paperfeeder cant feed the paper correctly into print position.
another reason might be that the paper isnt placed well into position. Have a look around the FAQ, too:
Hi, try using HP brand photo paper, HP makes their special photo printers and special photo paper for them. The surface of the back of the HP's paper is rough, like sandpaper to avoid the paper being jammed in the cheap loading mechanism of their actual printers.
