Re: paper jam

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 toner or ink cartridge. 
If necessary, remove the toner or 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 (see A). 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 (see B). Don't force anything, though. 
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.

Paper pulls to right side and then jams it all started when paper jam i pulled it out and ever since then when loading paper it pulls to the right and then jams

Try running a good sized thickness paper thru it to clear out the cutters.
Sometimes when they jam some residual paper is left in the space between the cutter wheels and causes the paper to feed askew...
I use the cover from old phone books.

Had paper jammed - removed jammed paper - but nerror light still on

Before you can clear a "PAPER JAM" or "PRINTER JAM" error, you must locate where in the unit the paper is jammed.
First, unplug the machine for safety and disconnect the telephone line. Next, follow these instructions based on where the paper jam is located.

Paper is jammed inside the paper tray:
  1. Pull the paper tray out of the machine.
  1. Pull out the jammed paper to remove it.
  1. Reload the paper in the paper tray.

  2. Reinstall the paper tray.

Paper is jammed inside the machine:

  1. Remove the jam clear cover on the back of the unit. Pull the jammed paper out of the machine.
  1. Re-insert the jam clear cover.

  2. If you can not pull out the jammed paper, lift the scanner cover from the right-hand side of the machine until it locks securely into the open position.

  3. Remove the jammed paper.


  4. Check the print head's position. In the example photo the print head is positioned at the left hand side of the platen area.


  5. Gently move the print head to the center.


    Note Be careful to not force the print head to move.
    If the print head is positioned at the far right hand side, you cannot move it. Please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".

  6. Examine under the print head. If anything is found, remove it.


    Note Use a flashlight if necessary to check thoroughly.

  7. Lift the scanner cover to release the lock. Gently push the scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover.


  8. Reconnect the power cord and telephone line.

Note To prevent paper jams, do not put multiple kinds of paper in the paper tray at the same time.

If the message continues to appear on the LCD, the machine will require repair. Please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".

Thanks for using fixya......

My psc 1100 series paper jam. How i can fix


You need to switch off and unplug the printer. Now open the rear access door by pressing in on the left side of the access door and then pulling it toward you. Now check for any paper jams. From the rear access door opening, gently pull any jammed paper out.

Note-- All paper jams must be removed by pulling the paper out the back of the all-in-one using the rear access door. Pulling the paper out the front of the all-in-one rotates the paper feed rollers in the wrong direction and can lead to additional problems.

Reattach the rear access door by inserting the two pins on the right of the door into the holes for them, and then pressing in gently but firmly on the left side.
