Cartidge jams when trying to print a fax

The paper feeds in ok but comes out smeared and illegable.
Opening the case shows the printing film bunched up. It's not being wound on to the takeup reel.

    I have the same problem. The only ribbon that did not bunch up was the demo ribbon which came in the original box. I think it might somehow be related to using "compatible" ribbons. Does anyone have an answer?

I use to sell the generic ribbons. they have a lower heat transfer. the ribbon starts melting to the paper & causing all kineds of problums. Sorry to say you need to buy name brand.

Brother hl-3045 jam inside


Had the same problem, called help center and fixed it!!!
Problem occurred when i tried to print colour labels from Word.
Black cartridge printing worked fine.
When using manual feed (pull down black panel in front which says 'brother'- you'll get the message for this if printing labels
you must open the back door of the printer.
got 'paper jam inside' error message.

Here's what I did and somewhere along the way, something worked.

Turn and unplug machine
take out all drum cartridges (all 4)
Take out the black belt (everything you can remove has a green arrow or tab- easy)
check to see if there's any paper in there- there was no paper in my case.
separate the drum from the cartridge for each colour and check the colour roller and the fuser film roller- don't touch them- no paper stuck that i could see
put them back together carefully.
Put the belt in and then the 4 cartridges
do a test run- mine still showed error message- paper jam inside
switch black with each cartridge and do a test run for each. When i switched with yellow - didn't work, magenta- didn't work- cyan- WORKED!!!- the colours were messed up on the document but it went through and printed without the error message.
Here's the sequence of what colour cartridge went in which spot.
Yellow in black slot
magenta in yellow slot
cyan in magenta slot
black in cyan slot.
then i switched them back to the way they are supposed to be and tried to print again and it worked!
the colour is amazing on this printer- i had the trouble right from the beginning after installation.
hope this helps.

Fax machine print light


When you see light print it can be from a few things. This is basically a laser printer with a fax machine so the same problems exist in both. The most common cause by far is simply low toner. If you take out the toner cartidge and gentl shake it side to side then put it back in. Now try printing again. This should be much darker. This may only last a few dozen pages (but can go a quite a bit more if you are lucky) but it shows you that you need to get a new toner cartridge. The other causes can be a image setting in the fax. In the control panel it will show you a setting for how dark it will print. Normally it is in the middle of the range. The last common thing is a fusor wire. This normally shows up as a error first but it can slowly fail. The fusor is the heater that bonds the toner to the paper. If it doesn't get hot enough then not all the toner sticks and you get light printing.

Normally the problem is low toner.

I have a Brother MFC 8220 with a nonBrother cartridge and the original Brother drum. No problems printing until today. I tried to send a 4x6 piece of thin card stock through the front manual feed on the...


There are possibly 2 reasons why this is happening.
1. The drum unit may have been damaged in some way but I doubt it. Check fully that all contacts are in the right place at either side of the drum unit. A contact may be slightly bent.
2. Check the Transfer Roller is in its correct position. The transfer roller is the felt type roller that is positioned in the printer under where the drum unit goes. If this has got out of position then that could also cause the faint printing. Check contacts in printer are not bent.

REPEATED REAR PAPER JAMS-BROTHER INTELLIFAX 2820


Try making prints or copies with the rear door open. If it does not jam your fixing unit (hot area) is functioning properly. With the rear door closed try again making copies or prints. If it jams it's most likely the exit rollers acting up.

1. I've seen the exit sensor break on these units and sometimes the drive gears wear and do not feed properly.
2. If using after market toner or refills this may also coat the exit roller with a film which prevents the exit rollers from feeding parper out by reducing the friction of theses rollers. Clean with fantastic untill cloth does not turn black.

Paper jam in Panasonic KX-


Your document feed is separate from your received and report prints so that's why your reports are printing ok and the document feeder jams. When you open up the doc feeder and look inside the machine you will see a roller and above it on the cover that opens you will see a rubber pad. Clean both the roller and pad (in fact anything in there that is rubber) with a rubber cleaner, alcohol, or even soap and water on a cloth without it been dripping wet. You will probablt find that they are very dirty. The roller feeds the document in so that needs to be clean and the pad helps to keep all the other docs from feeding in at the same time and that should be very clean so it produces good friction.
