Question about Brother MFC-J5910DW Color Inkjet All-in-One Printer
Very often (not always) I got a paper jam at ther rear of my printer. More precisly, the printer makes a strange noise (as if something rub the paper or the roller at the rear) and the paper does not go through the roller at the rear (even when I print a single page). It stops there. NO PIECE OF PAPER inside. I tried different improvements but nothing is enough (I mean sometines it goes through, sometimes not), Has anybody an idea?
Don't fill the paper all the way to the top. Just load half the tray and try it. Also make sure the top tray for faxing is clear of any paper.

Testimonial: "Thank you, I already did that, but the paper is well introduced it is when it comes to the back that it looks like it cannot turn around and go under the roller at the back of the printer (for example if I open th door at the back it is ejected as it should, if close the back door, it stays locked just at the level of the roller). Is that clearer? Regards"

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.

SOURCE: paper jam
if it picks up paper then say's jam you most likely have a very small piece of paper still jammed.look for a dent in the paper you pull out,if there is a dent then that's probably the problem.look where dent is on paper and that is where you should look for the piece that's causing the jam,if that does'nt solve problem i would need more info

SOURCE: pixma mp460 error 5100
this error is an error within the printer. This error means that there is something obstructing the printing process. Check inside your printer through the gears that you can see under the lid. There should be something obstructing the gears such as dirt or in my case popcorn. There was even some paper caught underneath the rollers that I had to jiggle around to even see. Check VERY thoroughly.

Being a retired electronics technician, I located and downloaded a copy of the service manual. Then proceeded to hunt for the reason why the Paper LED was staying on. I put the printer into the Production diagnoses mode, then by process of alimination opened and closed each panel and cheack each sensor switch one at a time. At which time it was apparent the problem was the rear door sensor. So I started to disassemble the printer getting instructions from the Service manaul, as most electronic equipement there is a sequence process to accompliah this. and once I found that the method of the rear door sensor operated I found the bracket was not in the right position. I put the sensor bar back into it's proper position and put the printer back to normal opperateing mode, I found my problem was solved. So I reassembled the unit and plugged it back into the compter ran a couple of test sheets and cleaned and aligned the printer head(s) made a few adjustment and everything was back to normal.
I must say that locating the Service Manual was a feat, but worth every cent I paid for it which was $9 USD. Personally i think all service manuals should be available for all Brother products for a fee, then a large number of problems can be fixed by the owners without much bother to Brother.
I ahve two of these printers and would still purchase a Brother colour printers, my next purchase is going to be a Brother color laser printer. Out of all the printers i've used on my computers I like the brother the best.

Tips for a great answer:
85% of paper jams are caused by worn rollers . The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease. If you plan to keep your printer,
Replace the pick-up and feed rollers.
Metal Tab Separation- Pull out your paper tray and examine either end where the paper sits in. If any of the corners are held down by metal tabs, this is your paper feed system. Chances are, you only have one rubber roller or one set of rollers arranged along side of each other. Reach in where the tray goes and feel up. You should feel some rollers. They might be completely round, or they might be shaped like a half moon. Clean whichever part of them you can with the solution, and this should stop your paper jams. It might be necessary to turn them, but don't force them if they don't move freely.
Pickup Roller and Separation Pad-
If your printer uses this paper feed system, you should see a small piece of flat or slightly curved rubber or cork. It would be towards the end of the paper tray, or deep inside the paper loading cavity on top loaders. This 'separation pad' rubs against the paper feed roller, so if you find the pad, you've found the roller. Clean it and your jams should stop.
Three Roller Paper Separation System- Pull your paper tray out, and look for a roller on either end of it. If you find one, clean it. Then look inside the printer where that roller would rest with the paper tray inserted. You'll find another paper roller there. Clean this one also. Finally, look further back or closer to the front of your printer (depending on which way your paper feeds) to find another roller or set of rollers. Clean all of these, and your paper jams will go away

Open the Rear Cover. If you can see the jammed paper, slowly pull the paper out. Clean the rollers in the rear section too. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response Thanks, Joe
