Are you saying that the printer pulls in too much paper at a time, or that it's actually printing on more than one page, even if you only want to do a single page? If it's pulling in too many pages, try fanning the paper. At times, especially in low humidity conditions, paper will tend to stick together and then several sheets get pulled into the printer. Fanning will often relieve the symptoms. Also make sure that the feed roller is clean. Use a cloth with some alcohol on it and rub the tire all the way around or as much as possible. See if that works.
Open the top of the printer as if you were going to change the ink cartridge and push the cartridge to the left. Reach your hand inside and see if the paper from the jam is truly out of there. Sometimes when you pull the paper out the front or back from a paper jam there can still be something stuck inside that is gumming up the works.
I had this problem today and think I've figured it out. Take a sheet of plain paper and two little pieces ot clear 'scotch' tape. Tape the blank sheet behind the business cards at the top/feeder edge and try again. You may need to tweak it a bit more but it stops it from printing so far up.
There is a part of the printer that looks like a roller (sorry I can't remember the name now) but you may know it. It rolls over the papers to pick one at a time and forward that to the printing segment. If you can reach it, try (gently) to adjust it into place (or normal position). It probably rotated half cycle or so when you forced the paper out. It needs to complete the cycle in order to tell that there is paper. I am using experience from laser printers so bear with me. But that's what usually causes such problems after **** occassions.
