Had paper jam and cleared paper but unfortunately ripped the paper when releasing from printer. I manually fed a piece of paper through and it seemed to be fine but the machine wont print and is still showing the "paper jam". Is there something more seriously wrong now, can it be fixed or would it be advisable to buy a new one.
Dont want to have to buy another one if its a simple problem. Hope you can help me with this

you MUST get the tiny paper out of the machine. It will make more jams for sure. If you do not have a manual or someone handy try looking up your printer model on the web for jam clearing advice at the location where the paper ripped. Usually there are numbers. Sorry!
To clear the error message Paper Jam after you removed the jammed paper, open and close the scanner cover.
If you still receive the error message, a small piece of paper may be stuck inside your Brother machine.
Refer the below link for the steps to remove any ripped paper remaining inside your Brother machine:
This the method to clear paper jam, follow these steps:-
Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.
Turn off the printer.
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the ink cartridge.
If necessary, remove the ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though.
Replace the ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
Often times after forcing a piece of jammed paper to come out, it can begin to tear and rip. It's possible that a small fragment of paper is still inside the printer, and most likely blocking a jam sensor along the paper path. My recommendation is to take a piece of heavier card stock paper and manually feed it through the machine, attempting to clear out any debris that may have become lodged inside the paper path.
If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.
Follow the steps for fix HP Printer Carriage Jam
Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck. Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side. Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path. Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.
if you cleared the paper jam an your printer still shows this paper jam, you may try this: 1. after you clear the paper jam, turn off an on the printer. 2. if above advice is not working you may try to look more carefully (with a flashlight maybe) if a small piece of paper is not blocking the paper jam sensor. 3. unfortunately this is a job for a qualify serviceman. 4. in less then 2-3 % of cases is a defective sensor, and must be replace by a serviceman.
I too kept getting the front cover paper jam despite followings Oki's paper jam removal instructions and blowing out the printer with compressed air.
In my case, the paper drawer was the problem. When you pull out the drawer there is a spring loaded piece of white plastic at the very front of the drawer. In the center of that is a gray rubber strip. That strip had come loose in the center and bowed out, preventing paper from exiting the paper drawer. I manually removed the strip, clipped off a little piece from one end so that it fit back in the recessed cavity on the white plastic piece and glued it back down.
This should be applicable to all Oki c5xxx color LED printers.
