Does it jam when you put more paper? Maybe there is and obstruction in the tray area.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

I have an epson printer and when I hit print, the paper slides right thru & says paper jam

  • Carefully remove the jammed photo paper. Gently pull the paper up and out of the paper feeder tray.

    Reload the paper into the tray. Stack the paper on a flat surface and then carefully slide the paper stack straight into the paper feeder tray---along and aligned with the right side of the tray. Secure the stack in place by sliding the left "edge guide" against the paper stack.

    Press the "OK" button to resume printing. If you had a "Paper is jammed in the printer..." error message displayed on the control panel LCD, pressing "OK" should also clear the message.

  • 4

    Pull the paper from the printer, if the status message reappears and/or the printer doesn't print, and check the paper for folds, buckling and curled edges or corners. Also check the sheets for sticking. If any of your sheets stick or have damage, remove them from your photo paper stack and replace with new sheets. Reload the paper and press "OK" to try again.

    Paper jams in first rollers out of paper tray one sheet will feed but several will jam

    Check for wear on the first set of rollers. If they seem fine and your print settings are correct (media type and size) then you may need to replace a small part in the paper tray. When I have seen this issue previously I needed to replace a seperation pad that lifts paper up(spring loaded to raise the paper the right amount as the paper level goes down) and has a rubber pad on top, when the rubber pad gets worn and it no longer 'holds' the bottom sheets that are not supposed to feed.You can get these from brother directly or from service centers/retailers. The part you need is the paper feeding kit, part no. LM6291001 and it looks like this!

    CLP-315 all at once started to paper jam on every sheet with the paper about 3/4 of the way out of the fuser, partially in the tray. The printing is only on about 3/4 of the page as well. I looked...

    If you make a print, look in the printer driver (ctrl +P, then go to properties) Look if you have selected the correct paper size.
    Laser printers are very sensitive on humidity of the paper, so if this solution doesn't work, it can be that your paper is not good anymore (maybe you store it at a dry/warm/humid place). In that case you can try to use a new pack of paper (from a sealed package).

    I cant find my manual how to i place the paper underneath so it feeds through the bottom

    You can use the paper cassette located at the bottom of the printer, on the front when the output paper tray is closed concealing the paper feed switch, the usb port and the cassette lamp.
    1 Gently pull out the cassette from the printer.
    2. Remove the cover from the cassette.
    3. Place your paper in the cassette tray.
    a. when using A5 or larger sized paper (non standard sized paper, pinch the tab and extend the cassette if needed.
    b. legal sized paper is not loadable in the cassette
    4. Do not load paper above the load limit mar4k.
    5. Make sure the print side of the paper is facing down.
    6. Align the paper stack against the right side of the cassette
    7. Slide the paper guides so they fit the loaded paper stack.
    8. The paper cassette will hold up to 150 sheets of plain paper, however you do not eant to stack any more than 50 sheets in the Paper Output Tray.
    9. Reinsert the cassette into the printer. Then set the cover on the cassette. Now make sure the cassette is pushed al the way into the printer. (If long paper was used and the cassette was extended iy will now extend beyond the front of the printer
    10. Prepare the paper output tray by opening the front cover and pulling out the tray extension until extended completely.
    11. Press the paper feed switch so the cassette lamp lights.

    You can slo select the paper source with the printer driver if you prefer .

    My Brother 5250DN is not pulling paper through. What could it be?

    do a test print... see you manual. You hold a button for 3 seonds and it'll print a test page. If that works you should be OK. Make sure that your paper tray is NOT over loaded. Maybe try less paper. Try the manual feed using one sheet of paper

    OKI B4100 paperjam warning

    Acording your explained you need do
    1) clean the input tray roller surface, to make sure it has enough grip force.
    2) looking for a sensor around the roller rear, it could be cause the paper jam there, because if the sensor does not detect any input paper go throug there then should be stoped at roller rear.
    3) if you find a optical sensor there, please use a slft cotton stick to clean its surface. (maybe open some cover needed)
    hope you fix it , ask me any time please!

    Polyester labels from tray 1 4 labels per sheet right side color

    It says on the website the labels are 56lb (I guess cover weight). The only way the stock will run right (ie) fuse correctly is in the mp tray using one of the thicker settings. Also if you run labels out of the tray you run the risk of them peeling off making the turn out of the tray and into the machine. All non standard paper is better off using the mp tray.

    Replace Paper Tray Message won't clear

    On the right side of the tray, there are 3 rectangular holes. The "plug" goes in the top hole but, if it came out, it probably won't stay in. I've taped a piece of sheet metal in the hold before to get by. You can buy the part for a few bucks from xerox or inktechnologies. There is a lot of pressure on this plug so it takes something pretty strong to hold.
