If it is a jam 2 in the fuser area you should replace at lest the heat roll, if not, just replace the fuser assembly.
Typically what happens after about 25,000 pages is that the teflon coating wears on the heat roller. The toner then builds up on the roller and the paper tends to stick to the roller.
If you notice reprinting on the copies, prints or faxes, then you know that the heat roller is worn out.

Try cleaning all rubber rollers with a rag and some rubbing alcohol.

What would cause paper jams in a hp 4100 printer


Where is it jamming. Printer this age could have fuser issues, worn rollers that are not picking up properly. Is the jammed paper crinkled up or does the printer stop before damaging the paper? If paper is not damaged, the cause is usually in the paper pickup slipping and causing the printer to think that the paper is either too long or too short. Clean all the rollers in the paper tray cavity with a damp cloth.

My Lexmark c534n printer keeps jamming. I have changed the rubber rollers and the photoconductors. However, the paper will not even go up into photoconductor area. The rollers do try to push the papers...


The fuser rollers might be damaged. Check if the fuser rollers are damaged because if they are they can cause the paper jam, and might need to be replaced.

The paper jams when I try to print. It will not feed from either the lower or the upper paper feed. It is jamming in the back of the printer.


Paper jams


85% of paper jams are caused by worn rollers . The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease.


Open the Rear Cover.

If you can see the jammed paper, slowly pull the paper out.

Clean the rollers in the rear section too.

Paper jams in heater


Hello

An overheated fuser is one of the most common causes of a paper jam. When large loads of print jobs are pushed through a printer, the fuser slowly starts to warm up. As the fuser warms up, the heat causes the corners of the printer paper to bend. The hotter the fuser gets, the more the paper bends. Eventually the paper bends so much that it causes the paper to get stuck in the fuser, causing a jam.

If you cannot find any other reason for a continuous printer jam, the problem may be the roller. A cracked roller can easily grab a piece of paper and get it caught. A glazed-over or dirty roller can also cause the paper to get caught on the roller and jam the printer. If the roller is cracked or glazed, you may need to call your print technician or replace the roller.

How do I clear a paper Jam


Try either of the following methods to clear the paper jam. The operator panel displays the Ready message when the jam is cleared.Method A:
  1. Press Paper Rewind until the Paper Empty message appears.
  2. Press Paper Advance to re-load the paper into the printer.
    The printer advances the paper, then cuts and discharges about 24 in. (61 cm) of blank paper. This reduces the possibility of fingerprints or other damage to the prints.
Method B:
  1. Turn off the printer and open the upper cover.
  2. Remove the ribbon from the printer.
    Caution: Prevent damage to the printer. Do not pull abruptly on the paper.
  3. Slowly and carefully pull the jammed paper out of the printer.
  4. Cut off any damaged or printed areas of the paper. Do not damage or mark any of the rollers.
  5. Close the upper cover and turn on the printer.
  6. Press Paper Rewind to rewind the paper into the printer.
    Note: If the Paper Jam message still appears on the operator panel, press Paper Rewind again.
  7. Open the upper cover and reload the ribbon.
  8. Close the cover.
  9. Reload the paper.
Note: If the Paper Jam message still displays on the operator panel, and you are at the end of a paper roll, it is possible that a segment of paper is too short to automatically exit the printer. Remove the front cleaning roller and remove the segment of paper.

I can't get my brother printer to print photos Keeps saying paper jam even though no paper jam


One of the main causes for paper jams is the presence of dirt, dust, or debris in your toner cartridge. The paper coming into the cartridge would get stuck. So clean your printer regularly. Remove the dust from the printer. Also find out whether any jams occurred in the sensor hole in the upper part of the rotating drum. Do not touch the roller while cleaning. If the oil in your body gets into the roller, the printing media cannot roll over it properly and you can't get rid of the printer problem.

Model No MFC7420 Paper gets stuck through heat roller - constantly opening up machine and pulling paper out. Very annoying. Can this be resolved? Or is it an expensive fix


normally if the paper is jam after the heat roller and before the exit part.. the cause of the problem is the wore out Paper Eject Roller.. it's not an expensive fix..the cost probably will between US20 to US30..
But if the paper get jam before the roller..you might need to check the heat roller finger...if that is damaged.. it would cause paper to jam as well...

What would cause the machine to wrinkle every 5th page? The first 4 are fine.


Damage to the feeder mechanism or pickup roller assembly would cause a cyclic feeding problem like you describe. For example, two cracked gears. This kind of problem may drive the paper fine until the damaged area on both components align with each other, then the feeder would stop for a moment causing the paper still being driven from behind to bunch up against the roller.

When the thing starts turning again the paper is now buckled and causes a jam. But, when you pull out the paper you move the roller and the two components back out of sync therefore allowing it to work until the next cycle. (In this case 4 pages)
