My paper won't load - it pulls in about 1/4 of the sheet and then stops. I'm getting error code E3 and have checked for a jam but see and feel nothing. I've also used alcohol to clean the...


This is a paper jam error. Unplug your computer from the AC outlet and from the computer, next place the printer on a table or anywhere that you can get access all panels and the paper tray easily. Remove the paper tray and look for any pieces of paper that may be stuck in the printer. Look also around the back as there is usually a panel that can be removed without any tools.and check there. Also open the printer as if you were going to change the ink and look around there. Make sure you have plenty of lighting or a flashlight as even the tiniest piece of paper can trigger this error message.

Hope this helps.

Samsung SCX-4521 "Paper Jam 2" won't clear


Hi there have you tried the door at the back of the machine as there maybe a piece stuck in the fuser unit. If not open the back door and check that there is a small black lever in the middle of the two rollers sticking up as this is the sensor arm that determines that there is a paper jam or not. If this is still there then the paper will be stuck just after the paper cassette within the paper path.

Hope this helps you.

Goodluck,

Brother 2920 Fax Machine keeps jamming every few pages


Please try this and let me know how it goes

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. 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.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.
