I had many jams using a Kodak printer, but lately I've been fanning the paper, which they may have told me to do, but I didn't know how to do it. Here is a step by step way to do it. Take the stack of paper you plan on using in your printer & straighten it by taking it by each side & tapping it on a surface (like a desk top). Bend the stack of paper as if going to fold it in half. On one side, the stack is fanned out. Grab the paper on the long sides with both hands & slide it into the printer tray. Go ahead & print, I've had fewer jams since loading my paper this way. Give it a try, see if it works for you!!!

The paper jams when I try to print. It will not feed from either the lower or the upper paper feed. It is jamming in the back of the printer.


Paper jams


85% of paper jams are caused by worn rollers . The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease.


Open the Rear Cover.

If you can see the jammed paper, slowly pull the paper out.

Clean the rollers in the rear section too.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

You should first have a check over the roller . Mostly the problem will be the roller only .

But let me know how old is your copier ?

Depending on it we can solve your problem .

Paper jams in heater


Hello

An overheated fuser is one of the most common causes of a paper jam. When large loads of print jobs are pushed through a printer, the fuser slowly starts to warm up. As the fuser warms up, the heat causes the corners of the printer paper to bend. The hotter the fuser gets, the more the paper bends. Eventually the paper bends so much that it causes the paper to get stuck in the fuser, causing a jam.

If you cannot find any other reason for a continuous printer jam, the problem may be the roller. A cracked roller can easily grab a piece of paper and get it caught. A glazed-over or dirty roller can also cause the paper to get caught on the roller and jam the printer. If the roller is cracked or glazed, you may need to call your print technician or replace the roller.

Printer says paper jam when there is no paper jam hit the ok button and it will print out a paer fine and then say paper jam again. repeat


the rollers that feed the paper into the machine have a a set time limit to do so... if the rollers cann't do it in this time limit then you get a paper jam. you either need to clean the rollers with isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol ) and a rag or replace the rollers...

Paper is jamming during printing process. Gets half way round and jams. please suggest solutions


There are rollers that the paper has to go between to be pulled forwards. When the rollers get dirty with paper dust, paper starts jamming. So you need to clean the rollers with a moist (not wet) soft cloth, Keep rolling the rollers manually and keep cleaning them. Then allow a few minutes to dry them up. And no jam after that.

Fax Machine keeps jamming


Depending on where the jam is, it could be the rollers at the exit. I have found that these rollers become sticky and cause intermitted jams. I suggest using methylated spirits to clean the black rollers where the paper would come out. You might have a few problems getting to them from the front so I would open up the back and see if you can get to them from there and clean the little grey rollers while you are there wont do any harm. :)
Careful you don't pop the black rollers out of position or you will get constant jams.
:) Good Luck

Printer malfunction


The samsung printer have three paper jam sensors. First (paper jam 0) after the feed rollers. Second (paper jam 1) at the left of the feed rollers and third (paper jam 2) at the fuser unit where it is hot. You can see the actuator between the two white rollers. Paper jam 2 is mainly cause by the scrappers out of position on the side of the upper heat rollers.You will have to clean it and put it back into position.

Doesn't Print - Says "Paper Jam"


That is the problem, machine will show printer jam if paper feed rollers fail to pick up paper when requested, your machine sounds like it needs new paper feed roller or you can clean the paper feed roller with a slightly! damp cloth.

If no jam light shows when power is turn on and machine comes to ready and then you send a job to printer and it then shows jam then it is the feed roller or sometimes the feed clutch

If on the other hand it always show jam then there is or a switch is stuck.

Paper jam


a jam could be confused as a slow-turning roller to the machine. try to clean your rollers with alcohol and then lubricate the roller axle bushings with 30W oil.
