Had the same problem, called help center and fixed it!!! Problem occurred when i tried to print colour labels from Word. Black cartridge printing worked fine. When using manual feed (pull down black panel in front which says 'brother'- you'll get the message for this if printing labels you must open the back door of the printer. got 'paper jam inside' error message.
Here's what I did and somewhere along the way, something worked.
Turn and unplug machine take out all drum cartridges (all 4) Take out the black belt (everything you can remove has a green arrow or tab- easy) check to see if there's any paper in there- there was no paper in my case. separate the drum from the cartridge for each colour and check the colour roller and the fuser film roller- don't touch them- no paper stuck that i could see put them back together carefully. Put the belt in and then the 4 cartridges do a test run- mine still showed error message- paper jam inside switch black with each cartridge and do a test run for each. When i switched with yellow - didn't work, magenta- didn't work- cyan- WORKED!!!- the colours were messed up on the document but it went through and printed without the error message. Here's the sequence of what colour cartridge went in which spot. Yellow in black slot magenta in yellow slot cyan in magenta slot black in cyan slot. then i switched them back to the way they are supposed to be and tried to print again and it worked! the colour is amazing on this printer- i had the trouble right from the beginning after installation. hope this helps.
Another possible reason for getting this error is a dusty printer. I don't dust very often so dust piles on everything, including my printer. My daughter wanted me to print something for her and the first page went through just fine. But the second never started and I got error 1003. I had plenty of paper loaded and my settings for the size of paper were correct. I dusted out my printer and everything else printed just fine. My theory is the top paper had dust bunnies on it that were pulled into the printer when it pulled the first page in. Maybe the dust got caught on a sensor that told the computer there wasn't any paper. Regardless of what happened, a quick cleaning fixed the problem. I just wanted to throw in my two cents for anyone out there that may have a dusty printer and run into this error.
You are most likely getting this message because of a paper size mis-match. For example, you are sending a print job as letter size but your printer is set to or has a4 size installed. When the printer sees that the print job is not a matched size to the paper in the tray, it will look to the manual feed tray for paper to print on, hopefully the correct size. Make sure your paper setting in printer properties on your computer match the paper in the printer and the print job "page setup" is also the same size/
i had the same problem. i went to the settings and did all roller cleaning, head cleaning and still got the same messages. finally i made a copy which worked, after that it would print from my pc. try that.
This error means that the type of paper that is configured in the printer is different from the one you have chosen in your computer to send for printing. Make sure that the paper size is the same in both places the computer program you are using and the printer. For example if I have a Letter size word document that I want to print but the printer has A4 configured then I will get the 34 short paper error but If I change the paper in the printer and the setting to letter size then everything should print fine.
Opened "Control panel>printers/faxes>Printing preferences>Basic>Paper source, and selected Tray 1 for all pages. Then went into the print menu in Adobe Reader, wich is where I was trying to print from originally, and deselected "choose paper source by PDF page size. It seemed to work.
