My printer keeps saying the paper is jammed but its not it will print a test sheet or nozzel check fine then when i set it up for a job it says paper jam again all paper settings are fine please help someone
We had the same problem at the college where i work. the print queue had somehow clogged up to such a point where the printer was doing this. the constant paper jam light & the printer taking paper when printing test sheets etc. we solved it by deleting the printer & then re-installing the drivers. may not work for everyone, but it certainly worked for us.

I have this printed and if you read (carefully) through the manual it tells you it doesn't like single sheets of paper. If ever my paper feeder tray runs below say 3 sheets then this error will crop up so keep it topped up with paper.
The same goes for photo paper too.
It appear from here that the exit sensor may be dirty and you can use canned air and blow it out.
You may also be missing the paper out sensor that is located at the bottom of the printer oposite of the paper tray when you pull it out. When the flag arm has fallin out, it will give a false paper jam error when the last sheet has printed from the tray, not knowing or detecting that the tray is now empty.
Reinstalling the printer is related the Software.
If the paper gets physically jammed than its the driver setting issue or hardware issue.
Check if two sheets get jammed or only one sheet.
If it is two sheets than printer is picking up multiple sheets and paper gets jammed.
If the printer is jamming a single sheet than remove the Tray and look there is rubber roller inside if there are marks or lines on that rubber roller or if the roller roller is worn out than that rubber roller called as paper pickup roller need to be replaced.
If that looks fine than try to priny using manual feed and if the problem persists from manual feed too than try another toner cartridge
If the problem is not from Manual feed Tray that Replace the main Tray with known good Tray and check if the issue resolved.
Well what you need to do is do a rest on the printer.That should solve the problem.If you want any further support, an online technician from techbuddies can help you for free.For this log on to http://tinyurl.com/m7ghqz
i think some **** of paper might be stuck inside the printer mechanism, carefully check it. if no, try the following :
* unload the cartridges and reload it back
* keep the printer offline (disconnect from the pc) and try copying something
* realign the cartridges with a former printed alignment sheet (i think u may have known how to align it)
I guess its a coz of paper jam in your printer. Heavy cardstock and certain types of slick or coated paper can cause frequent paper jams. To better isolate the cause of your problem (machine or paper), try a new **** of regular 20 lb copy or laser paper.
Don't Overload Overloading your paper tray can cause paper jams. Your manual may say that your input tray can hold 250 sheets -- but if you keep getting jams, try loading 225 sheets instead.
Check the Paper Check the minimum/maximum paper weights that your printer can handle. Paper that is too thick, or too thin, can cause jams.
If you still get paper jams after this may be its time to clear the internal of the machine..You might want to have a look at the following link..
When you say TOP TRAY, do you mean a paper drawer, or the BYPASS TRAY? If the labels won't feed into the bypass but bond paper does, check to see if your labels are made for inkjet printers. Go to www.avery.com and contact Avery customer support to see what product they recommend for your MFC. Labels made for plain paper printers sometimes do not work for inkjets, and vice-a-versa.
most printers are pretty cheap now so replacement is always an option....on the other hand, I will spend countless hours trying to figure out what is wrong first. Remove all paper first, open printer and check for pieces of torn paper or debris, if you have a can of air you can blow out the insides to clean. Put 3 or 4 sheets of paper in, print a test page and watch carefully how paper advances...is it straight or crooked when being loaded? Is printer trying to pull more than 1 sheet at a time? Good luck
