Question about Panasonic KX-P7100 Laser Printer
Paper is jamming
Posted by Anonymous on
The paper jam in theKX-P7100 is usually due to the paper tray.
If you pull the paper tray out you'll notice a black piece of plastic (located at the most front) with a cork like material in the middle. Try pushing down on this piece of plastic a few times. If it does not pop up immediately the grease that Panasonic used has become "sticky". The piece of plastic is removed by turning the tray upside down and pushing on the small plastic tabs that hold the black piece of plastic in. Be careful to not loose the spring that is located under the black piece of plastic or break the plastic tabs that hold it in place. Once you get the black piece of plastic out, clean it with que tips and clean the area it slides up and down in. Make sure to remove all the "sticky" grease. Once you get it clean, don't forget to stretch the spring to one more inch. the spring quality is awful at tensile strength. Then place the spring back in its place and push the black piece of plastic back in its place. You can add some light oil to the black plastic to make it slide better. After it is reassembled try pushing down on the black piece of plastic a few times. It should spring up almost immediately. This should take care of the jams that you are experiencing.
In addition, you may have to stretch the 2 big springs under the metal plate in the paper tray to one more inch. To access them, you'll have to unscrew the 3 philips screws under the tray (take a picture before :-)), take away the 2 blue pieces and take out the metal plate.
Now I'm able to print from the media tray without any problem :-).
Hope this helps!

sorry to tell you but you need something called a post script attachment to be able to use this on a mac. its a small board that plugs into the main board.
