Re: Paper Jam every time I try to print

Where does the paper stop? Are there any sounds? Are there any marks on the paper? I need a little more information before I can help. Ed

After fixing a paper jam my printer started printing blank pages... What do I do?

Come on, none of these solutions are helpful. She obviously got the paper jam fixed and didn't need advice about that. It prints a blank page not Black doesn't print right. And a damned spam post linking a commercial site. I'm having the same problem and this is no help.

HP 1050 Fax Machine will not send out faxes. It sends the first page then prints out paper saying paper jam, but we have not paper jammed in the machine.

Sorry but still do not have it fixed...i printed off the manual for this fax but our problem is not on the trouble shooting list. But i'd think you would be able to tell how to fix it without charging for the sollution.

Paper jam in Panasonic KX-

Your document feed is separate from your received and report prints so that's why your reports are printing ok and the document feeder jams. When you open up the doc feeder and look inside the machine you will see a roller and above it on the cover that opens you will see a rubber pad. Clean both the roller and pad (in fact anything in there that is rubber) with a rubber cleaner, alcohol, or even soap and water on a cloth without it been dripping wet. You will probablt find that they are very dirty. The roller feeds the document in so that needs to be clean and the pad helps to keep all the other docs from feeding in at the same time and that should be very clean so it produces good friction.

Brother mfc8220 jam problem

We looked everywhere for a piece of paper stuck in the machine and couldn't find it. We finally fixed the problem by moving the paper size adjuster in the paper try until it was right up against the paper. If the paper is free to move around in the tray, apparently the machine sees that as a paper jam.

Jam paper inside

believe it or not, a bad/faulty drum unit can cause this. or possibly the feed rollers just needing cleaned. it really helps on jam problems when you can print just 1 page and let us know exactly where that paper stops at.
good luck,

I just bought the 5860 and have this issue right out of the gates. I discovered that the back lid causes the paper jam when using the bottom tray while examing with a flash light during a print job. I dislodged the back plate/lid (same lid you remove to pull paper jam out) out about 10mm and fastened the lid loosely to the back with a piece of tape on each side. The paper from the bottom tray does not slam against the back of the printer any more, thus more freedom of movement and no jams. Just successfully printed an 80 page document. You shouldn't have to do this with a new printer but I got it so cheap with all the rebates that I'm going to keep it and live with this fix. To sum up, the problem is a design flaw where the removable back plate is snapped in too tightly and contacts the bottom tray paper roller (& paper) during a print cycle. To fix you need to clear the path by pulling the back lid out slightly and taping each side with scotch tape to 'suspend'the back plate out about 10mm.a5999d3.jpg
