When printing documents no matter how few or how many pages, paper gets stuck in the middle of printing.


Try using regular paper on unit as specified by Samsung. If that does not resolve the issue then the hassle lies with the paper feed mechanism. Often a good cleaning of all the rollers in the path can take care of the issue.

LOCATION OF PRINTER SENSOR


Jams

Clearing jams

CAUTION Do not use sharp objects, such as tweezers or needle nose pliers, to remove jams.
Damage caused by sharp objects will not be covered by the warranty.

CAUTION Always pull jammed media in the direction it would travel through the paper path.
Do not pull jammed media against the direction of travel through the paper path to avoid damage
to the printer.

To prevent damage to the printer when clearing jams, including jams in the output bin, always open the
print-cartridge door and remove the print cartridge. Keep the door open and the cartridge out until the
jam has been cleared. Opening the print-cartridge door and removing the print cartridge relieves tension
on the printer rollers, which prevents damage to the printer and makes the removal of jammed pages
easier.

Occasionally, media becomes jammed during a print job. You are notified of a media jam by an error
from the software and the printer control panel lights. See Control-panel lights (HP LaserJet 1010 series
printers) on page 102 or Control-panel lights (HP LaserJet 1020 printer) on page 106.

The following are some of the causes of media jams:

?

The input trays are loaded improperly or are too full. See Loading media on page 25.

NOTE When you add new media, always remove all of the media from the input tray and
straighten the stack of new media. This helps prevent multiple sheets of media from feeding
through the printer at one time, reducing media jams.

The media does not meet HP specifications. See Media specifications on page 21.

?

Typical media jam locations

?

?

?

Print cartridge area: See Removing a jammed page on page 43.

Input tray area: If the page is still sticking out of the input tray, gently try to remove it from the input
tray without tearing the page. If you feel resistance, see Removing a jammed page on page 43.

Output path: If the page is sticking out of the output bin, see Removing a jammed page


NOTE There might be loose toner in the printer after a media jam. This toner clears up after
a few sheets are printed.

Removing a jammed page

Use the procedures in this section to remove a jam.

CAUTION Media jams might result in loose toner on the page. If you get any toner on your
clothes, wash them in cold water. Hot water will permanently set the toner into the fabric.


Partshere Troubleshooting

CAUTION To prevent damage to the printer when clearing jams, including jams in the output
bin, always open the print cartridge door and remove the print cartridge.

To prevent damage to the print cartridge, minimize its exposure to direct light. Cover the print
cartridge with a sheet of paper.

NOTE The following illustrations show the HP LaserJet 1020 printer. The same procedure is
used to remove a jam in the HP LaserJet 1010 series printers.

1

Open the print cartridge door, and remove the print cartridge.

2

Grasp the middle edge of the side of the media that is most visible, and carefully pull it free from
the printer.

CAUTION Do not use sharp objects, such as tweezers or needle nose pliers, to remove
jams. Damage caused by sharp objects will not be covered by the warranty.

CAUTION Always pull jammed media in the direction it would travel through the paper path.
Do not forcefully pull jammed media against the direction of travel through the paper path to
avoid damage to the printer.


3

When you have removed the jammed media, replace the print cartridge, and close the print cartridge
door.

After clearing a media jam, you might need to turn the printer off then on again.

NOTE When you add new media, remove all of the media from the input tray and straighten
the stack of new media.

Paper keeps shifting during loading and eventually gets jammed every time


Seems like the rollers are either dirty, or worn out. Probably the latter.

The printer is constantly sending a message- 'paper jam'


HP Officejet 7200, 7300, and 7400 Series - 'Paper Jam: Clear jam, and then press Enter' Message Displays on the Control Panel Display
Issue
During printing, the paper becomes stuck in the all-in-one and the error message 'Paper Jam: Clear jam, and then press Enter' displays on the control panel display.
Solution
Use the following instructions to clear a paper jam from the product:
Step one: Check for and remove any loose paper from the In tray
Do not try to remove jammed paper from the In tray. First remove any loose paper from the In tray to avoid worsening the jam.
CAUTION: Always try to remove jammed paper from the back of the printer first to avoid mechanical damage.
Step two: Clear the jam from the back of the printer
Follow these instructions to clear jammed paper from the back of the product. If the product is equipped with a two-sided printing accessory, skip to that section.
Remove the rear access door to clear the paper jam

1. Remove the rear access door by pressing the buttons on the side of the door and pulling it toward you.
Figure 1: Removing the rear access door
Rear access door
2. Gently pull the jammed paper out of the rollers.
WARNING: If the paper tears while removing it from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the product. If all the pieces of paper are not removed from the product, more paper jams might occur.
3. Replace the rear access door. Gently push the door into the all-in-one until it snaps firmly into place.

Remove the two-sided printing accessory to clear the paper jam

1. Remove the two-sided printing accessory by pressing in the buttons on the sides and then pulling the accessory toward you.
Figure 2: Removing the two-sided printing accessory
2. Gently remove any jammed paper.
WARNING: If the paper tears while removing it from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the accessory. If all the pieces of paper are not removed from the accessory, more paper jams might occur.
3. Press the button on top of the two-sided printing accessory to open the door.
Figure 3: Opening the two-sided printing accessory door
4. Gently pull the jammed paper out of the rollers.
5. Close the accessory door.
6. Reinstall the two-sided printing accessory.

Step three: Clear the jam from the automatic document feeder (ADF)

1. Remove the document feeder tray from the product by gently pulling it.
2. Lift the cover of the automatic document feeder by pulling it outward.
Figure 4: Lifting the cover of the automatic document feeder
Automatic document feeder (ADF) door
3. Gently pull the jammed paper out of the rollers.
WARNING: In the rare occurrence of a severe paper jam, you might need to remove the face plate from the front of the automatic document feeder and lift the pick assembly to remove torn pieces of paper from deep inside the automatic document feeder.
4. Close the cover of the automatic document feeder, and then reattach the document feeder tray.

Step four: Verify that the print carriage can move freely
Follow these steps to try to move the print carriage.
CAUTION: Do not force the print carriage to move if it is out of plain view or feels stuck. Forcing it may damage the printer.

1. With the product turned on, open the print cartridge access door. The print carriage might try to move into the access area. If so, allow it to move to that position.
2. Without turning off the product, unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Unplug the power cord from the power source. The power cord must be unplugged to allow the parts to be moved by hand and to reset the paper feed mechanism, without the risk of an electrical shock.
3. Looking in through either the print cartridge access door or the output paper tray, make sure the print cartridges are locked into the carriage and have not come loose. Also, make sure that there are no obstructions under or around the carriage to block it from moving.
4. Make sure the print carriage can move freely across the width of the product by gently pushing the carriage to the left and then to the right. Clear any obstructions found.
You may have to reach through the output paper tray to access the print carriage.
5. Close the print cartridge access door and plug the power cord back to the back of the product. Plug the power cord into the power source.
6. Press the On button to turn on the product.

Step five: Reload and test the printer
After you have removed the jammed paper, make sure the product is still functioning properly.

1. Reload the product with plain paper.
2. Peform a self-test by pressing and holding the RESUME button on the control panel until the product begins printing. A test page prints.

Step six: Service the printer
If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.

Paper jam notification after printing one page, no paper jam


try this
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

PAPER JAM


Rotate tires. Pull out paper tray. Pull down on red low paper indicator at left bottom. Two rollers come down on axel near center. I pulled off the rubber tire like roller, then twisted the roller inside out and reinstalled it with the fresh side out.
If tires dry out again will probably buy new ones from ebay.

I had the same problem on 4 Brother HL-5250's, I checked the whole printer, and couldn't find a paper jam, yet the red printer light wouldn't shut off. I finally followed the instructions on Brother's website for removing a paper jam, and the solution for all 4 printers was paper stuck in the fuser cover. See below on how to open the fuser cover.

Pull the tabs at the left and right hand sides toward you to open the fuser cover (1).

  2. Hint
  3. There are 2 kinds of covers at the rear of the printer. Please make sure to open both the back cover (step 7) and the fuser cover (step8).

    Sounds like you may need to replace the pick up rollers on the machine.  Without knowing exactly where the jam error happens during the print process, it's hard to say.
