Question about Brother MFC 8500 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Consistent paper jams

Whenever I try to print I get a paper jam. I have carefylly removed the jam but it is still hapening every time I try to print.As you face the machine the paper is jamming on the left hand side. The machine seems to take hold of the paper on the left only.I looked into the machine after removing the the drum to determine if I could see any pieces of paper that would cause the problem and found nothing. I used a flash light when doing this.

Re: Consistent paper jams

If it's not a majore mechanicla problem then it might be a simple dirt problem. Make sure all ruber clips and rollers are clean, U can use some aerosol to clean them Good Luck

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.

We have a Ricoh Aficio CL3500N and every time we print the paper jams and we get the "Remove Misfeed A: Internal Path". I remove the jam and when it tries to print again we get the same thing,...

There may be an obstruction inside the printer. Try this....remove the paper from the paper tray and put paper in the handfeed tray (front of the machine) If it feeds from that tray it means that the feed rollers in the bottom cassette are worn.

My Canon Pixma MP160 won't work :( It says there's paper jammed in the printer and it needs to be removed but there isn't anything there. . . HELP!!

Previously when you had tried to printing any paper the printer has adopted paper jammed error but at this time you have not turned off the system.The printer has configured paper jammed whenever you are trying to print.
It represents that it want to restart the system.
Unplug the printer and reconnect to your system.

HP LJ P3005 13.31.00 ERROR

As i can understand whenever you try to print with rear door closed printed page should come on top from top output roller however paper gets jammed.
Try to print a page using rear door open and it should come out from the rear drop down tray it printed page comes out successfully with rear flap open than paper gets jammed at top due to faulty top output roller.
However if the paper gets jammed at fuser with rear door closed than it is issue with fuser in that case you need to get fuser replaced at the same time replace 20 tooth gear next to fuser.

Thanks and Regards

Paper jam

try another photopaper of less weight. It could be that the rubber of the paperfeeder is stained with paper dust.

What you also can try is:
take paper tray out.
use a sponge with a rough side (to clean very dirty pans) to scratch 
along the grey rubber and to give the rubber more grip.

HP 1510 - Photo Paper Jams

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.
