Question about Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have just moved and was very carefull with this printer.
I put it back in the original packaging & added extra
bubble wrap around it iniside the orginal box
& then packed it around clothes in a plastic tote container.
Now every time (dozen times in a row at least so far) that I have tried to print, it brings the paper up from the tray right up to where the ink is sprayed and jams there. I open the back and pull the paper out, then close it up and try again and does the same thing. The real Bonus is that if I leave the jammed paper alone where it is located & Shutdown or unplug it, Then when it powers back on then it Ejects the "jammed" paper out the front and this process has happened each of the four times that I have done it. --- I am about ready just to buy another printer ... already started online shopping for one.
Any Substainal Help would be Appreciated, eh?
Your paper jam may be caused by either a small piece of paper stuck in the paper path, or more likely during the moving process the removable rear paper path piece was somehow knocked loose and is not fully seated and locked into place. It has 2 tabs on it, just squeeze the tabs and remove this item from the printer, check for any obstructions, then just push it back into place. Hopefully it is now all fixed!

if someone directed you to take the printer apart, there's probably a panel or door that isn't closed or in place all the way. Take it all apart again and start over.

clean the paper feed tires with some alcahol. they are located in the upper part of the machine when you pull out the paper tray. they are gray in color. if that does not work the feed tires may need replaced.

Here is the most important thing to understand about paper jams in any printer....
The printer does not know if there is a paper jam anywhere in the printer.
What it does do, is respond to sensors ( optical sensors, either open or closed, by plastic flags). These flags are moved as paper moves through the paper path.
One example of a paper jam message when there is really no paper jam, is when the feed rollers are worn and do not pick up paper from the paper tray.
When you start printing, the printer expects that first sensor to open ( paper passes the sensor ) at a very specific point in time. If the paper did not get picked up from the tray, then the printer will ASSUME that the paper must be jammed somewhere because it did not reach it on time.
Now this will also happen if in fact the paper did get picked up and then jams prior to the sensor.
So... if you get the picture of how this works, understand then too, that if the printer is showing a paper jam message at power on, then one of the flags is open when it should be closed.
If you do not actually have a piece of paper holding this flag in the open position, then the flag is possible broken.
I usually see this kind of damage occur after a true paper jam, where the paper is removed either in the wrong direction ( pulled out back the way it was going instead of the way it should normally travel ), and this breaks the flag, or it was pulled out forcefully again, catching on and damaging the flag.
All of the above pertains to ANY printer, and not just yours. you must take care to fully inspect every inch of the paper path, from the paper tray, to the exit, use a flashlight, and look for the sensors and make sure they are not blocked or broken.
