Question about Brother HL 2270DW Laser Printer

1 Answer

Printer keeps jamming even after clearing jam

So my printer will start to print and it will get about half way out of the printer [where I can see it and jam]. I pull out the paper and take out and put back in the cartridge and the printing will resume. When the next page prints out it will do the same thing. Sometimes I can reset the whole printer by unplugging and plugging back in and it will sometimes work for one or two pages, then jam again. Any ideas?

Hi, most paper jams like this are caused by something inside the printer called a "pickup roller" which is a series of rubber tube/grippy things that are responsible for moving the paper through the printer. If these rollers are dirty or worn down, they don't grip the paper properly and end up causing jams. In larger, more expensive printers, they have maintenance kits that you can buy to replace rollers, fusers, and other commonly replaced parts - but it's probably not practical for this model of printer. You may want to try opening the printer as much as you can (without removing screws) and using compressed air and a lightly-damp-with-alcohol cotton-swab to clean the rollers and other parts that touch the paper.

SOURCE: No paper fed

I'm guessing that little piece of plastic has something to do with the paper sensor.  You may want to open that section and set it back the way it was.

Seems you have a dusty roller in the feed mechanism. try cleaning off the roller with some windex (or equivalent) on a towel.

SOURCE: Paper jams 1/2 way through drum/cartridge. Jams

Take the toner cartrige out, look around with a flashlight for a piece of paper or something that could jam the works. Check the movable tab that comes out of the front of the machine to hold paper up, maybe it has gotten crooked or something. Don't have anything in front of the machine to block the paper coming out. A can of compressed air can be used to blow the machine out.

My HP psc 1350 all in one printer scanner copier keeps saying paper jam, how do I clear status on my computer when I have fixed all paper jams and printer says clear?


I suggest you uninstall the printer and disconnect it from the mains and from the computer. Restart your computer a couple of times and then reinstall the printer.

I have used HP printers quite a bit and find them reliable if they are left alone but if I try and interrupt their work by cancelling a print once it has begun or even by attempting to continue working on the computer while it is printing it starts acting like a crazy person and won't stop until it has been switched off for about half an hour. All my HP printers have been the same in this respect...

When printing documents no matter how few or how many pages, paper gets stuck in the middle of printing.


Try using regular paper on unit as specified by Samsung. If that does not resolve the issue then the hassle lies with the paper feed mechanism. Often a good cleaning of all the rollers in the path can take care of the issue.

Paper feeds about half way and then stops. All of the indicator lights come on.


If you get a paper jam, the Paper Jam indicator light promptsyou to clear the paper path. If the paper has just started to feed from thepaper feeder when the jam occurs, pull the paper straight up out of the paper feeder. Open and close the printer cover toresume printing. If the paper jam occurs inside the printer, remove the paper from the output bin. Turn the printeroff, then on. If this doesn't clear the jam, open the printer cover.Remove the print cartridge and cover it.For additional assistance, please contactLexmark Technical Support

My hp deskjet says there is a paper jam when there is none and will not print


If your printer for any reason reports a paper jam, withput going through the "clearing paper jam" procedure it may not respond to print command. So follow the procedure below:-

Clearing paper jam in a printer is simple almost seven step procedure depending on the printer. Paper jam is the term used to refer to the scenario where your paper fails to come out of the printer during the print process. When you send a document to the printer, normally the printer prints out the document on a paper; then you can pick up your printed copy. When the paper gets stuck in the printer, it is said that paper has jammed in the printer "paper jam".

Even if you are not a technical person, you can conveniently clear paper jams. All you need is to follow the set of procedures outlined below.



Good luck & God bless!

The orange down arrow light keeps blinking. what's wrong?


This means that either the printer is out of paper or there is a paper jam.

Try to check all feeds for a paper jam. Once the jam is cleared your printer should resume printing again.

Sometimes even a small peice of paper can cause the printer jam

Non-printing, semi-jamming, printer


so since the jam your printer hasn't been working properly. I would think that the jam caused the printer to crash. I would say to get a different printer. The cheapest place i can think of is best buy because they have printers under $100
