Question about Samsung SCX 4521F All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Paper Jam message on every print job.

Every time I send a document to print the printer reports a "paper jam" error. There is no paper jam and all I do each time is remove the toner cartridge, put it back in, close it up and it prints one page at a time, then another error "paper jam" is reported. I hae to go through this every time to print one page at a time.

    I fixed it myself. I had to open the rear cover. In the centre just before the hot paper roller, is a black plastic lever/flag which goes up and down every time a piece of paper feeds through. It is spring loaded at the base. The spring had become dislodged from its holder. I just had to push it back underneath its holder so the "flag" can keep resetting itself every time paper passes through. Thanks for your help though.

I have the same printer without the doc feeder. Check the paper trail thru the printer for the paper sensor lever hanging up. It gets pushed up by the paper and can stick, making the printer think it still has paper in it. Pulling the cart unsticks it till you print again.

Red light is constantly blinking and when try to print, there is always a paper jam


Every time there is paper jam, the printer knows the job is not completed and hence tries to re-print after the paper is removed and cover is shut.

Clear the print job from computer.
Power off the printer and Clear the paper jam (if any)
I would try to use different tray. The paper pickup roller in one path may be worn out.
eg Sheet feeder or multipurpose tray.
Load paper in new tray
Set the application to use new tray

Ensure you sue the right thickness (gsm) of the paper. Quality of paper is crucial. Too thin; too thick can affect functioning.

My hp deskjet says there is a paper jam when there is none and will not print


If your printer for any reason reports a paper jam, withput going through the "clearing paper jam" procedure it may not respond to print command. So follow the procedure below:-

Clearing paper jam in a printer is simple almost seven step procedure depending on the printer. Paper jam is the term used to refer to the scenario where your paper fails to come out of the printer during the print process. When you send a document to the printer, normally the printer prints out the document on a paper; then you can pick up your printed copy. When the paper gets stuck in the printer, it is said that paper has jammed in the printer "paper jam".

Even if you are not a technical person, you can conveniently clear paper jams. All you need is to follow the set of procedures outlined below.



Good luck & God bless!

Printer says Paper Jam but it is not


  1. Remove the paper from the paper tray.
  2. Press the Power button and then wait for the jam to clear.
    • If the paper jam cleared, try the print job again.
    • If the paper jam is not resolved, continue.
  3. Remove the rear access door. Press the handle to the right, and then pull out the door.
  4. Remove any paper that is inside the printer by pulling the paper out from the back of the printer.
  5. Replace the rear access door.
  6. If the paper jam cannot be removed from the back of the printer, raise the product cover, carefully remove the jam from the front of the product, and then lower the cover.
  7. Re-load the paper in the In tray. Fanning the paper makes sure that the pages are not stuck together.
  8. Press the Power button ( ) to turn on the product.
  9. Open the document in the application in which it was created.

Paper jam error after last page prints


Hi Natoli3,
This could be a mis-match of paper sizes. Example, computer could be sending an A4 page to the printer. The paper size in the could be set to Letter. Ensure the 4 paper sizes match, in the computer - the document and printer driver; in the printer (change in control panel) and paper tray (adjust the physical side and length).

Paper Jam


hi y'all -

you share a frustrating problem... error message but no apparent error (jam)! it's one that's common to many models of printers and the result of many different causes.

I've seen it when I've printed on cheaper paper, or different (lower) grades with odd surface finishes. the sensors get dirty, or the printer/computer 'thinks' there's paper stuck where none exists. I've opened/closed paper trays 2-3 times and rolled feed rollers around multiple times, then closed printer paper drawers only to have the 3rd time of doing the exact same steps be the time it cleared the error message.

there are often very tiny pieces of paper stuck in weird places in the paper path in printers, too. if you did have a jam before the message started, is every little scrap of the page accounted for? there are also hard to get to places to find paper scraps in larger printers, but I'm going to assume you're all talking about home printers.

here are a few general HP support links you may find helpful for future paper jam messages for this model of printer.

this link is for general info for this model:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?cc=us&dlc=en&product=304535&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

this link is for general support for this model:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/solveCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=304535

here's a link addressing paper jams in general:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bud09189&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&rule=26353&product=304535

and here's one on cleaning your printer:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00016484&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=304535

hope this helps a little bit for future refs. remember that using good paper helps print quality and lessens printing problems. also, when you take a stuck page out of a printer, doing so gently will help ensure little scraps of paper do not tear off paper edges and get stuck in weird spots. it some times helps to gently, manually, roll the feed rollers a full turn around in the printer, too. patience pays! -JW50
