SOURCE: paper jam inside

You may also have a problem with the paper feed (clutch, dirty feed/pick up tires) section, or even a dirty sensor as Jay mentioned. A sensor in modern office equipment is generally a photo sensor, which means it shoots light from one side to be detected on the other side of it. If it's dirty, it will give you a flase reading. Try cleaning the tires that pick up the paer from the tray (don't force them down if they won't rotate easily) with mild soap and water on a rag, and also try fresh paper. Sometimes if paper has been sitting for a while, or in damp conditions, it will pick up moisture and give you paper feed problems... which is what it sounds like you are having. Sounds like the paper may need even be making it to the sensor in the 1st place if it on comes out of the tray 1/2 an inch. Good luck

Try here. I didn't see the 870c, make sure you have the right model number (check the back label as well) and try the one listed as 970c if you can't find it. Sometimes the next model up will handle the model down from it as well. Good luck!
