I have problems printing output from samsung scx4216f...
When paper tries to exit the printer it starts to grip tightly and rip (centre of paper over a widthe of 6 cm's) and then jams up even when printing just 1 or 2 sheets.
I clear it and cannot see any impediment either via the back of the printer or by taking out hte toner or papaer tray - even swopped toners but no difference.
Have had problem over a year ago when doing very large print run and assumed this was due to the heat buildup. I would find a spec of paper stuck to the rollers on paper exit route at back of printer, clear it ,let it col and al would be ok!
But I can't do anything this ytime as nothing seems to be stuck - looked and examined thoroughly!
Do I need to take it apart? - If so what do Ineed to do?

That's a common problem on that machine, those rollers at the exit get coated with toner and fuser oil, so they have no grip to pull the paper thru. If you dampen a rag with alcohol and power off the printer, each time you turn it on or close the front door the rollers turn and you hold the damp rag against the exit rollers one at a time to clean them...
The rollers at the exit area are worn out. They can be changed, in the mean time you can use something like sand paper to rub across the rollers to take the smoothness out of them. That will help them get a grip on the paper as it is exiting.
take it back -- Samsung has a year warranty, but if it's brand new, take it back. I've had two 2510's and have been happy until they get some wear on them, then I have the same problem. This ought not to be happening to a new machine.
Check the paper output area ( around the output rollers) for a small piece of paper. You may need to disassemble the output paper assembly, and clean the rollers, or replace the paper output assembly.
In reality, what you have is one part of the printer trying to "push" the paper, while another part of the printer is trying to "pull", resulting in the wrinkle.. The problem may also be with a paper output sensor being stuck, which is why I suggest you check thoroughly for paper scraps in the output assembly.
there is still a piece somewhere,
1-where you put the paper there should be a lever,this tells the machine paper is present to print.
2-At the exit there is another lever telling it paper is going out and if there is a paper there.
Check to make sure these levers are free and can move easily, one may be stuck. Maybe you ripped the paper when trying to remove and a piece was left behind.
