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

Ref kodak esp3 firstly keepa saying printer not responding paper jamms have cleared it but still jamms to right side cannot afford engineer



Try also to reinstall driver software after removing printer so as to reset. it this wont work remove the rollers to check as there seems to be fault in the transport of the paper in the rollers. So if you have used any adhesive sticker printing, it is possible that some glue has got clogged into the rollers. If not there can be some jammed paper in the rollers or the mechanism.
So start this work only if you are mechanically able with the right tools.
Remove the covers to get access to the mechanism . Remove the motor drive assembly , the fitting of the motor to the mechanism. Once this is removed the rollers can be turned manually so that you will be able to feed a paper to see the progress of the movement while studying if there is any obstruction or damage to the paper.
There is a in-detect sensor, usually an opto-coupler , make sure this is not clogged or dirty as this IR detection feeds the signal to the processor for starting the motor drive feed.
Reassemble but make sure the rollers are aligned to be in equal gap to feed the paper without a side pull. Now you must print and see if the fault has changed. If not repeat the above work to confirm the area of obstruction

Paper feed jamms the paper all the time, will not feed without jamming from bottom tray, top tray jams every 2 to 3 prints or print with the top corner bent


Unless both feeder rollers went bad at the same time, which is unlikely, it must have something to do with the paper. It might be slightly damp, or not the correct kind. Try using high quality matte white paper from a brand new pack and see whether it still jams.

push the paper a little bit to help the printer to pull it correctly if not working then there is a problem with the rollers and that would be a hardware issue and needs to be fixed at the shop.

Is it pulling through only on the right?
Or left?
Either way [sounds like] it needs taking apart to put the paper feeder cogs back inline.
To the right would suggest the easier option of the bar which is visible from where the paper exits has dislodged and the cogs sit on the left hand side of it.
As the paper feeds through it's unlikely the other option as those cogs are what feeds the paper through but they are intricate so it can't be ruled out.
Not much fun if you don't like doing mechanical maintenance I guess!

My printer has started feeding the paper through on an angle which is causing ti to jam in the right hand side. The paper therefore does not feed through and printing doesn't happen. My guess is that one...


Clean the pickup rollers with a damp cloth, and dry the rollers with a clean part of the cloth. If it is still feeding paper in scew, then there could be something stuck inside the printer.

PRINTING PROBLEMS


With all due respect to "sanjeevverma", solution #1 is nonsense; the Brother HL-5250DN paper tray is self-centering; in other words, there is only ONE position for the paper to sit in the tray ... the PROPER position (centered BTW); let's break it down:

paper not feeding correctly - if lollydoll is talking about the wrinkling, this a known problem with this print engine with no real solution; the feed mechanism design is extremely sensative to the moisture content of the paper (ie, if the printer is being used anywhere but a temperature and humidty controlled office -- good luck); thicker paper (eg, 24 pound paper - ask the Staples guy) may solve the problem if the temperature and humidity in your house isn't too far off the office norm (72°F and 50% R.H.); two items tucked in the corners of the manual (but not talked about by their tech support staff) are (1) paper path pressure release levers in the back (they are blue - check the manual to see how they work), and (2) there is a "thin" setting for the paper type on the printer's properties window; it has helped a little at my house; the only real solution is to print at least three copies of your documents; apparently getting the fuser up to temperature is key to getting non-wrinkled printouts.

paper doesn't feed at all - the roller at the front of the paper tray must be incredibly contaminated; use DENATURED ALCOHOL and cotton swabs to clean the roller and the other parts it touches; you can unplug the printer if you're worried about it

printing when no paper is present - BAD! this means either (1) there is a scrap of paper torn off and blocking the sensor - which is unlikely because the print-time diagnostics would catch that the sensor does not "cycle" when the paper supposedly passes through, or (2) the sensor is defective - in which case toss the printer and buy an H-P (spend at least $300, eh!)

don't get me wrong ... I LOVE my HL-5250DN (although I hate wasting all that paper and toner) ... but my first three lasers were HP's and they NEVER wrinkled or tore my paper ... I bought the Brother because it was twice as fast and printed duplex for half the money of the HP ... now I'll pay the difference in paper and toner but "c'est la vie"
