Re: constantly jams

Xerox has some good information on their web site regarding troubleshooting problems with their printers. I'd first suggest you visit there for help. As for general jam problems, try to determine where the paper is jamming. If it is a feed problem, for example, you can clean the feed rollers with Isopropyl Alcohol or run them over the sticky side of clear packing tape to clean them. If the paper is folding or getting stuck somewhere, look for what might be blocking it. I've seen this happen when one page jams and the page is torn and part is left in the printer. I've also seen situations where labels were put through the printer and some got free and stuck to the inside of the printer causing jams. If you can provide a bit more detail on where the jam is located, we can help you find the cause.

Well, it might be theres something stuck in there. Pick it up and give it a few shakes. I work on printers, and not too long ago I found a wedding ring, paperclip, banana sticker and other things in printers. If that doesn't work, try going to staples and getting a laser cleaner kit. They're basically sheets coated to pick up any paper dust, or bits of paper that might be clogging the path
