Re: paper jam on a brother MFC-290C
Sounds like there is still paper in there, carefully move the carriage assembly to the left and look in with a flashlight, also check the left side with the light. Usually paper gets wrinkled and shoved to one side or the other.

Still the logic board thinks there must be a paper jam. Could be caused by a defective sensor, bad connection from sensor to logic board or a defective logic board. And what is very common, something dropped in the printer and really blocks a sensor.
check all places where the paper can go, if perhaps a paperclip or a little scrap od paper is blocking a sensor.
Or contact a service centre, or perhaps you start sving for a new printer?
One of the main causes for paper jams is the presence of dirt, dust, or debris in your toner cartridge. The paper coming into the cartridge would get stuck. So clean your printer regularly. Remove the dust from the printer. Also find out whether any jams occurred in the sensor hole in the upper part of the rotating drum. Do not touch the roller while cleaning. If the oil in your body gets into the roller, the printing media cannot roll over it properly and you can't get rid of the printer problem.Hope this helps you. Thanks Michel
I would always just look for the paper to get out. Some printers lift up to the area where the paper slides througha nd you can pull it out just like that. Then, before printing again... just make sure your paper is lined up just right. You might be able to look in the intake spot for paper and see some of the paper hanging out from there.
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun 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. Do
this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any
obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or
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.
see alternative if the problem is still not solved.
a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume
button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the
printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.
