Try cleaning the rollers again and fan the paper. When you clean the rollers, use alcohol and a lint free cloth. Don't put too many sheets in the feed tray.

Why does my printer grab several pages of paper at once instead of one?


The printer when it was cleaned for paper jam might have damaged paper rollers which picks the paper as the gap is increased due to paper pull.You can replace rollers then problem will be solved .

Error paper jam


Hello Cassandra,
It sounds like you are having phantom paper jams. When the printer starts a print job and tries to pull a piece of paper but can't grab it the printer thinks there is a jam but there really is not. If the paper pickup rollers are worn down they are not able to grab the paper correctly to feed it into the printer which causes this type of error. The rollers are considered user installable and come in a kit with the rollers and the paper separation pad which keeps more than one paper from being pickup up at the same time. Installing the paper feed kit should clear up your paper feed problems. The paper feed kit is available here: http://www.ccl-la.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=342
I hope this helps.

Printer shows jam when there is none, press the check and it prints OK


That type of problem is called a phantom paper jam and is caused by the printer not picking up the paper like it should. When the print job is sent to the printer the pickup rollers turn and should grab the top sheet of paper and feed it into the printer. When the rollers get worn down and slick they can not grab the paper right so you get the error message. When you retry the rollers may be able to grab the paper and the job goes through. To correct this intermittent problem you will need to replace the pickup rollers and separation pads. This is easy to do for the end user no need to send the printer in for service. Here is a link to the roller kit needed for the HP Lasejet 2420 printer:

I have a Canon MP495 printer. It grabs the paper crooked and then it jams. I use regular copy paper for my print jobs. I took the paper out of the printer, and it grabbed and jammed. How can I fix my...


Same problem. Turned out to be a small nut lodged in the array of small rollers, just behind the ink cartridges. Managed to lift the roller bar at one corner, and shake it out.

When copying, the wheel that initially pulls the paper grabs and jams the paper to the right side.


Check the rollers that pick up the paper. Make sure they're both clean. If necessary, take a cloth dampened with alcohol and clean all of the pickup rollers. They occasionally get paper dust on them and don't pick up the paper right.

Paper jam repeatedly


Possible cause:
The eject rollers get too slippery because of paper dust and other foreign matter.
Recommendation:
Clean the eject rollers with a paper towel dampened with water. A second cleaning may be
necessary. The easiest way to do this (without disassembling the machine for full access to
the rollers) is to hold the dampened paper towel against the rollers and make a blank print.
Clean the rollers as they turn and remove the paper towel as the paper ejects. Repeat as
necessary.
Now is a good time to also clean the paper pick up roller and feed rollers to prevent
feeding problems.

Printer malfunction


The samsung printer have three paper jam sensors. First (paper jam 0) after the feed rollers. Second (paper jam 1) at the left of the feed rollers and third (paper jam 2) at the fuser unit where it is hot. You can see the actuator between the two white rollers. Paper jam 2 is mainly cause by the scrappers out of position on the side of the upper heat rollers.You will have to clean it and put it back into position.

Paper jam in tray 2


the most common problem for a paper jam in tray 2 is that either the pick up rollers and separation pads are worn or that there is something stuck to the rollers that transfer the paper up through to trat 1.(most commonly from if people have been printing on stickers/labels) just eyeball it to see if anything looks to be stook and try wiping it off. DO NOT SCRATCH IT OFF as this will only make things worse!!!

Paper jam


There are several things that can cause a paper jam error, even though there is no paper stuck. The most common is that the paper pickup rollers are worn or dirty, and can't grab paper. Even though there is no paper jammed in the machine, it will show the error message. The solution is to clean the roller with alcohol and a lint-free cloth (don't use paper towels). If the roller is very worn, you will need to replace it.
