    It also started happening to me after about 6 months of use

    I have the same.

    So far I assumed it is because one of the toner cylinder is not enough pushed into the machine, or tend to glide outside as there is nothing but the machine front door to keep them in place. So, the rear gear of the toner are not enough engaged with the one of the machine. So, it "jumps" over some of the teeth of the gear. It can damage both toner and machine gears --> I have to figure out how to actually fix those cylinder.

    I have the same problem after 8 mths use. Samsung tech told me to replace toner cartridge(which I had just bought) as it may be faulty. I replaced the cartridge to only have the same problem. TRying to get it fixed underwarrranty.

I have found the issue with non-Samsung printer cartridges. I don't get the problem with Samsung cartridges.

Paper jam at the rear of my Brother 5910DW printer The paper doesn't go through the roller at the back.

Don't fill the paper all the way to the top. Just load half the tray and try it. Also make sure the top tray for faxing is clear of any paper.

Paper tray won't feed. suggestions Brother 5240 boss is ticked!!!

Is it making any noise? Mine was making a popping sound and I took the tray out, unlocked the back paper length guide and gave the paper a little more room. (be sure to put it in the locked position when you are done). That appears to have fixed the problem for now.

My CX4200 is printing very close to the left edge of the paper.

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Printer R300

make sure you have the paper where it hits the part that sucks in the page to be printed (you can see the gray stucture by removing the paper and looking into where the paper is put) this might cause your papers, if you have a small amount, to bend to where the dip of the curve is facing the front of the printer. *Also the best way to prevent this is by having a LOT of paper where its fed (if the bending thing doesn't work.* Also the clicking noise is the sucking part not getting a piece of paper. This is because the paper not inserted correctly means that the pronter detects that paper is in the pronter but it can't get it.
