Horrid paper jamming issue on left side

I think by the transfer roller (I have no certainty that is what it is called).  It's at the upper part of the printer right at where the envelope flags should be triggered if printing envelopes).  To the left side (well now, the entire area) got a serious jam of paper, I took to it, extracting the paper by piece meal and thought it was all gone, ran a test print and now 1/4 sheet of paper is stuck there.  I cannot for the life of me figure out how to deal with this now (resorted to printing with my Canon Pixma for the time being, sucking up ink like no one's business).  Is this a fixable mess?  Do I need to call a tech out?  Or would I be better off investing that cash in a newer machine?

Hi, I've had this Samsung color laserjet (CLP-510) for a while now - found no reason to upgrade cause it's a great work horse. Now however from job to job it grabs an extra sheet of paper or two, and then...


It seems more likily that your pickup roller and separation pad has already worn out.

You may want to try pull out your paper tray and remove the pickup roller. Adjust the pickup roller and the paper tray separation pad may help.

next you may want to test with a single sheets of paper to see if the paper jam at the back of the printer near exit. If it does, you will need to replace your fuser too.

you can check the supplier info by going to menu -> system setup -> report -> supplier infor -> print -> yes.

Information below for item that is wear and tear.

1. Fuser - 25K +/-
2. Transfer roller 20K +/-
3. Transfer Belt 25K +/-
4. Pickup roller 20K +/-
5. Image Drum 25K +/-

hope this help :)

Oki C5500 printer keeps jamming

Open the tray and find yout imput roller. You can remove this roller and put it back on the other side. Normally this is caused because it is worn. The inside of the roller is like a new one.

Magicolor 2400w gives paper jam error at transfer roller, after I cleaned the printer -laser head.

My 2400W was standing a long time without being used, and when I wanted to use it, it made a very faint image and showed "paper jam at transfer roller". Also, the image stayed on the transfer belt, but never got transferred to the paper. I tried a lot of things, nothing worked, but the message from weirdal1968 above pointed me in the right direction.

I eventually scratched / scrubbed / cleaned the copper pad on the left side of the optical imaging drum - this copper pad probably receives the bias voltage for the imaging drum from a springy stainless steel wire. There was some visible darkening of the copper pad where the stainless steel wire touched, this is what I cleaned. And then, presto, problem solved - the image came out great, and no more "paper jam at transfer roller" error message.

Fuzzy prints, paper jam

If you would like the service manual reply with your email address (it's 5.87mb).
Your first problem could be caused by one of the following, feed roller from the paper tray is slipping making the paper to leave the tray late causing the registration sensor to flag an error because it hasn't detected the paper quick enough or the registration sensor is just not working, could even be the paper feed clutch or registration clutch. I don't think the problem is with the thin rollers.
The second problem could be a few things, possibly a consumable, i would start by swapping the consumables over between the two machines, transfer unit, transfer roller, cleaning roller, photo developers, fuser etc, if that doesn't cure the fault clean the hv connections. This problem is related to the high voltage so investigate in that area.
Sorry for being long winded, but without being in front of your printers its a bit of a guessing game.

Major problems when trying to print, Jamming alot & grinding noise

If the paper is an accordion type jam, you should replace the 4 small rollers, the upper feed roller, the upper feed guide, and the lower rollers. all of these are listed on hp's part surfer website.
RF5-0425-040cn, RF5-0434-000cn, RF5-0432-000cn, and RF5-0438-000cn respectively. Basically, get a new exit output assembly part number RG5-0456-180cn.
Does this help?

OKI c3200 Laser Printer...

There are 3 little black and white rollers under the cover on the back of the printer. They are pushed under the upper rollers. They should be on the outside of the upper rollers. Somehow they got wedged under the upper rollers. This should fix the accordian paper jam.

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!!!
