Hi.. I think I have a paper jam.. but cant get at it.
Ie . I gently pulled a stuck piece out and only 3/4 of it came out.
I cant see any fragments ect.
have opened up the back and taken out the paper tray

Ditto--same problem. But I've got an additional problem in that its the second printed paper that jams. The first printed paper has correct printing on it but the paper comes out all folded up in little horizontal folds.
If you removed a piece. But more remains it must also be removed. Look closely along the paper path for something that will release to provide access to the path.

Great solution here,i was having the exact same problem to the point where i was going to send it back.When you select your paper under general setup on your printer,glossy,plain,inkjet.you must also select the same,glossy,plain,inkjet under printing preferences when you select what printer your going to use.

I had the same problem. No jammed paper etc but while I was checking for one I noticed that the paper draw was not flush with the back of the printer and I was able to push the draw out from the back of the printer (don't think you should be able to do that!) Anyway, pushed it back into position, small click (into place???) and the paper draw could not be pushed forward again. Gave it a go and now the light is off at last and the printer is printing again.

Try shutting the printer completely down & unplug power. then plug power back in and while holding down all buttons on the printer control panel, turn it back on. this should put it into a self diagnostic mode that prints out just about everything the printer can do, including a sample page. Also, be sure all rollers are clean & trays are completely closed before restarting. If the printer works when you do this, you should most liely check all settings in the software package (driver) or perhaps reinstall the drivers. If this is necessary, be sure to download the latest drivers from the Brother website.
