DCP J315W unable to print 50

Try forcing a piece of thin cardboard into the paperfeed. (like a kleenex box, only the size of a piece of paper) look inside, and once your can reach it, get hold of it and pull it through. (do this with printer unplugged)You might be surprised what comes out with it. I had a little piece of paper jammed in there and the cardboard forced it out.

Paper not feeding through - paper jam

You are probably putting too many pieces of paper into the tray, forcing more than one piece of paper to get sucked into the printer and jamming

My mp250 printer is jamming paper and making a clicking sound

There's a piece or shred of paper caught in the paper track somewhere. Or one of the rollers has become mis-aligned. Its a case getting into it and checking it out.

My granddaughter put a toy in printer & a part broke off - thin, translucent piece about 1/4 inch wide by 7 inches long. How do I open up the printer in order to try to put this part back?

The plastic piece you are talking about it just prevents the paper from bending forward when is inserted in the printer. That plastic piece should not cause any paper jams or printing problems. If you do happen to have paper jams maybe a piece of plastic fell inside where the paper goes. Simply turn off the printer, remove the paper and flip the printer upside down and shake it a little that should remove any debris inside the printer.

Error code 200.16 paper jam check tray 1, inner door. But there is no paper jam there.

200.16 means the input sensor, it is in the paperfeed assy on the bottom of the printer, is activated. Check if there no paper or pieces of paper in the input sensor or if the input sensor is stuck in "open" position.

Paper keeps getting jammed in back of my printer lexmark x7170

Check the paper path and see if a small piece of paper is lodged somewhere along the track. Blow it out with a can of Dust Off. Or use a paper clip to dislodge any paper found in the paper path.

HP 1510 - Photo Paper Jams

Hi, try using HP brand photo paper, HP makes their special photo printers and special photo paper for them.
The surface of the back of the HP's paper is rough, like sandpaper to avoid the paper being jammed in the cheap loading mechanism of their actual printers.

Printer problem

Did the paper jam clear completely? Look for a small piece of paper stuck somewher inside the paperfeed track that's setting off the sensor. Clear that and you should be fine
