Clean the feed roller.
Remove the paper tray, from the bottom there is a grey rubber semi wheel in the middle front of where the paper tray would be. Use a cloth with WD-40, brake cleaner, or lighter fluid to lightly wipe the rubber clean. Put the paper tray back in and it should print.

Usually the problem constist it this rubber roller. When you cleaned well, i am sure that the problem will disappear. If you can remove a rubber (you will need tools and tech skills) you can rotate it a little so it will be new(fresh) surface on this rubber.
Hi. Kelly, I think the issue is the due to paper pick-up roller. When the
rollers get dirty or worn-out, the printer fails to pick the paper,
which results in paper jam etc.. So, remove the paper tray and toner
cartridge and locate the paper pick up roller in the middle. Clean it
with damp (with luke-warm water) and lint-free cloth. I hope this would fix the issue. If the Roller is damaged or worn out, it needs to be replaced.
I have a CLP-300, the paper jams
alot also - I have found that cleaning the area around the imaging unit
seems to help.
but usually the best fix is to replace the Waste Toner Bottle. that
seems to let it work for awhile. If it starts acting up again, I'll
empty the bottle, vacuum the imaging unit area and seems to help. I
think 3 times is the most I have been able to do this before needing to
use a new toner bottle.
No oil on rubber rollers! You must gently clean the rubber roller with isopropyl alcohol and a soft cloth. Let it dry and it should work again. Make sure to get ALL of the oil off of the paper paths surfaces.
Hi Thanks for using FixYa. Paper jam is a very common problem with the printers.
First of all clean off the rubber piece that pulls the paper into the printer from the tray with rubbing alcohol, and also take a knife to the rubber piece to rough it up to create more traction.
To clear the paper jam problem you need to remove the back roller mechanism to get at paper. If still the problem persists, then check the following to resolve the issue--
1.Please check all interlocks, electrical and signal connections are seated properly. 2.Front cover, back cover and lid are closed properly. 3.Power plug and USB cable are connected. 4.Printer is turned on with switch on the back. 5.Toner signal lights sequenced, with yellow overall led on. 6.There is some noise of paper roller movement. 7.Toner signal lights all out, overall status light turned to red 8.No visible paper in paper tray or anywhere else. 9.No paper in tray---added paper 10.Waste toner container is full or not installed ---empty, installed properly.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
Suggest you clean the pick-up rubber that lifts the paper.
And also lift up the front of your CLP-300 by about 3 inches. I put a box under the front. The paper will fed slightly downhill into the printer.
It works for me.
Someone suggested to empty the gray toner waste container located on the left side of the printer next to the cartridges. Be careful when emptying this as toner can make a real mess. Clean up with toilet paper or paper towel - not water!
Easy fix and this fixed mine like a charm. No need to send the unit in!
I had same problem and it got resolved by lifting the front portion of the paper tray up. I put a spare USB drive under the paper tray for sufficient push upwards. It seems to be working fine now for me.
There is a foreign object in the paper feed path. It could be anything from a paper clip or staple through to an insect (or worse). It will definitely be on the side where the crumpling occurs. Try feeding a strip of card or thin flexible plastic backwards through the feed mechanism. A laminated sheet of paper can also be effective for this.
