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

Paper jam


when coping or printing? make sure paper is in the tray the way you set it up in the tray settings on the control panel and the driver. paper size, orientation, and media type all make a difference. clean the roller and make sure the lift plate moves freely.

Cannot get printer to work keeps saying paper jam but I cleaned it out don't see any jam will not print? i inplugged it also still does not work ?


This happens if the jammed paper tears during removal and a small piece is stuck in the jam sensor or the jam bent or broke the jam sensor. Can you remove the paper tray or open any doors on the back to see any pieces left behind? A visual inspection perhaps with a flashlight may show something in there. The paper path is very short so you should be able to see something. If you can't reach it, you can try inserting a few sheets of paper or something thin and flexible to push it out.

Paer prints half the PAGER AND THEN JAMS ... I


The paper must be hitting something to cause it to jam. Take the drum/toner cart out also the paper tray. Unplug it and hold it upside down and see if something shakes out. Do not do this over carpet. If that does not do try a test page. look at the leading edge for dings and bends. If you find a bent spot on the leading edge thats where the problem is. Its almost always a small piece of paper Steven 818-888-0006

Paper keeps jamming in the paper drawer 1 and the right side. I have switched to paper drawer 2 and the same thing happens. Drawer is set to letter size but keeps jamming. What's the problem?


It sounds like you have something interferring with the paper path... Look for any small pieces of paper in the paper path, staples, paper clips etc...

If you can't find any then a service call will be the order of the day!
All the best! If I can help further please contact me : johno@execs.com

Paper feeds crooked and will not go through printer


Sounds like you have something jammed in the paper path. Take out the paper tray, and the toner cartridge, and look for scraps of paper, a paper clip, staple, stray cat, or other item in the path.

Paper shifts


Does it happen both off the copy glass & thru the document feeder or only off the document feeder. If both - check the side guides inside the cassette to make sure they are tight against the paper. If it only happens when using the feeder- the feeder tray needs to be adjusted. There is usually 2 screws under the document tray that when loosened allow for side to side adjustment. Moving the tray should solve the problem if it is only happening when you use the document feeder.
