Question about Samsung SCX 4521F All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Paper Jams I am having an ongoing problem with my fax machine. It is constantly getting a paper jam. It is making the paper look like an accordian or fan. The paper always is getting hung up on the left side (If you are looking at it from the fron) of the machine. Any ideas. Thank you

Re: Paper Jams

Take out the paper tray- and examine- the paper pickup on the jamming side. Do the same internally looking at the paper feed track. If you can get a vacuum nozzle and have a good suck out. It is all most certainly paper debris in the feed . Also take a look at www.fixyourownprinter .com

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..

Paper jams 1/2 way through drum/cartridge. Jams like an accordian, with 1/2 page printed. My printer is a Brother mfc 7420. About 2 years old.

Take the toner cartrige out, look around with a flashlight for a piece of paper or something that could jam the works. Check the movable tab that comes out of the front of the machine to hold paper up, maybe it has gotten crooked or something. Don't have anything in front of the machine to block the paper coming out. A can of compressed air can be used to blow the machine out.

Paper misfeed indicator light continues to blink even after paper

some machines will want all covers to be opened, then closed, for good reset. if you are having jams in the adf, then open all adf covers, and lift the adf upward, if it allows. also, try turning unit off, then back on. some jams only clear that way.

Sharp AL1642 CS Copier Grinding noise and Paper Jams

Loud clacking sound, jamming in fuser ? sounds like the gear that turns the fuser are bad and not meshing together,
accordion jam is the fingers or claws that ride on the fuser roller are probably worn out ( these can be replaced usually 3-5 ).

You can buy the parts and replace them yourself if a handy person, not that difficult.

Well, it might be theres something stuck in there. Pick it up and give it a few shakes. I work on printers, and not too long ago I found a wedding ring, paperclip, banana sticker and other things in printers. If that doesn't work, try going to staples and getting a laser cleaner kit. They're basically sheets coated to pick up any paper dust, or bits of paper that might be clogging the path

My suggestion is to take the printer to the highest floor in your building open a window and see if it can fly. or just use it as a $200 paper weight because after 3 months it has been to the shop 3 times and still is not working they way it should. Bad equipment bad support, and just plain bad product all around.

Did not specify where it is jamming?

is the paper size correct?
is the paper under the metal tabs in the tray?
is it jamming in the fuser?
is the fuser OK, if constant jamming in fuser then replace.
