Question about Tektronix Phaser 740P Laser Printer
FYI,I can only give you troubleshoot steps. I'm going to give you the simple one to start with and the more advance step will be on the bottom.
Get a new rim of paper.
Check the package on the side.
One better paper,they have an arrow the point to print surface and a rough surface (for the roller to pull in the paper)
Fill the tray so the print side will face away from the pick up roller.
The pick up roller can dry up. Check the condition of the rollers.
There are two springs that are near the tension pressure rollers. They can also be the trouble maker.
Open the unit and vacuum out the entire unit. There are few optical sensor that detect where the paper is located or jammed.
CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN and clean some more!
This unit can be dated back to 2004. It can use a PM.
Get some light lube and pass a little by all the gears and bearings,
Compare the former jam location and see is it going closer to the fuser roller.
Also check and make sure the fuser roller is clean and does get hot.
Do test print and let me know where it's jam at.

Here is the solution for your problem,
There is a clutch on the feeder behind a black plastic cover on the side that faces the rear of teh printerthat sometimes will slip of not turn at all. Alot of times removing the clutch cleaning it and applying a thin coat of lithium grease will have it working again.
Do all the cleaning and adjusting procedures. Remove any stock from the multi-media tray and closed that door. always leave it open with media loaded. u shouldnt have had no jams from the main tray. I've only printed 15-20 pages, and nothing bigger than a 4 page document, but it's still better than I had been getting! If this continues, and I will soon have to print a large report, the problem may have had a very simple solution!
The photos with the illustration is given in the below link may help you better...

Have you checked everywhere for paper jammed in the machine? Possibly a sensor is out of place but I think that you still have paper jammed somewhere if you still get this error after replacing the transfer kit. Unplug it, give it a small shake (upside down too), and then tear it apart looking for any small object that may be jammed in it. Let me know how this turns out.

THE FUSER IS BLOCKED OR NEEDS REPLACING,
----There is a clutch on the feeder behind a black plastic cover on the side that faces the rear of teh printerthat sometimes will slip of not turn at all. Alot of times removing the clutch cleaning it and applying a thin coat of lithium grease will have it working again.
All descriptions of parts and placement are the same. As you are looking at the transfer kit from the back of the printer, the clutch in question is on the far left with a 3/4" tab protruding from it. Take it apart, clean and grease it and it works great.
Being ever so grateful for a free and quick fix, I posted some pictures identifying the part in question:
The photos provided gave me the confidence to fix my Phaser 740 plus and that was 3 months ago. I printed lots with no more jamming.
