On the bottom rear of the printer there should be an access door with a thumb latch to open it.

How to repair paper jams


<span>Instructions</span> <ol> <li> Turn off the printer. As the printer shuts down, it will automatically attempt to remove any paper that is jammed.<br /> </li> <li> Pull any paper that is visibly sticking out of the printer. This can help to remove it if the paper is loose enough.<br /> </li> <li> Open the printer as you would to change the ink cartridges. Check inside to see if you can find the jammed paper and gently pull it out. You may need to remove the ink cartridges. Alternately, some desktop printers have a separate panel at the back of the printer that you can take off in order to remove jammed paper from the roller.<br /> </li> <li> Turn the printer back on and repeat the steps if necessary.<br /> </li></ol> jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); <span>Tips & Warnings</span> <ul> <li> Gently pull any jammed paper using both hands and avoid ripping. Tearing the paper may worsen the jam.</li> <li> Avoid filling paper trays to maximum capacity in order to prevent printer jams and never use damp paper.</li></ul>

Paper jam - I can see the jam, but don't know how to remove the paper.


Hello

Open the top cover of the printer.

If you can see the jammed paper, take one or more sheets of paper and pull them toward you.

While pulling the paper, press the RESUME button to turn the paper feed rollers.

If the paper needs to be fed in the opposite direction, release the RESUME button and then press it again.

If the paper is still jammed, turn the printer off or remove the power cord from the printer. Then turn the printer back on or plug the power cord in.

The printer will run through a reset cycle, which may clear the paper jam.

If the paper is still jammed or if several (8 to 10) sheets are jammed, take hold of a sheet in the middle of the stack using both hands.

With firm, even pressure, pull the sheet toward you.
Usually, removing one or two sheets from the middle of the stack will release the pressure and the rest of the stack can be removed.

Make sure no scraps of paper are left in the printer.

Close the top cover of the printer.

Try printing again.

Paper Jam in OKI B4300 Led Printer


This printer is designed with a dual toner/drum chamber. Do not separate these two parts. Upon opening the lid, you will find the toner/drum assembly right in front of you. Pick it up with both hands and pull straight up. After that, you should be able to take the jammed papers. Know this: once a paper is jammed, printing another paper will NEVER take the first out. Just make sure to remove the complete papers. If they break, make sure you extract all the pieces.
