Rollers might have built some tackiness(glue like formed around rollers) the solution will eliminated this, by doing this problem not solved change feed rollers

Constant Paper Jam


check the wheels that pick it from the tray.
If they feel smooth, try to put some tape on them and rip it back off.
This cleans the wheels. Also try a new pack of paper and check if it\'s set to plain paper and not to heavier or coated paper

A940 printer. Diagnostic page looks perfect.


Seems to me a software problem.
Try uninstalling & re-installing the printer drivers & see if this helps.

Paper feeds to the right and Jams


Sounds to me like there is something in the paper chanel, a staple, paper clip or something small enough to get in there. Have you tried turning the printer upside down and lightly tapping the side to see if anything falls out?

Paper jam after first page prints.


Most likely something in the printer or software is set to an improper paper size. It's saying jam because it prints the first page and registers an incorret size.

Check BOTH the printer itself and the program you're printing from.

A940 doesn't feed paper correctly


My DELL A940 printer used to jam every time with the paper pulling to the right. 
Solution - there was a pen jammed in the mechanism ! 
I was about to trash the printer when I looked deep into the workings from above, holding the printer to the window to get bright sunlight into it. I could see a round ballpen laying in the groove at the bottom. 
Hooked the pen out and all is back to normal. 
This may not be your problem, but its worth a look.

Load mpf paper


Your printer is set to default to the Main Paper Feeder, which is probably set for letter size paper. You must tell it to feed cards. On your Windows Desktop, left click mouse on START. left click on CONTROL PANEL, and left click on the PRINTERS icon. On the PRINTERS screen, RIGHT CLICK on your Dell printer icon. On the drop down menu, left click on PRINTING PREFERENCES. On the PRINTING PREFERENCES window, left click on the PAPER/QUALITY tab. Under TRAY SELECTION, choose the PAPER SOURCE where you want your business cards to feed from. Left click on APPLY button. Next, left click on the ADVANCED button. On the ADVANCED OPTIONS window, use the drop-down box next to PAPER SIZE to choose the paper size you want to feed. Press OK button. The PRINTING PREFERENCES window will now reappear. Left click APPLY, then OK buttons. After you have printed your cards, be sure to restore the printer defaults back to their original state, or the printer may jam because it must be programmed for the paper size being used. If you reload letter paper without resetting the paper size, the printer will think there is still card sized paper in the tray, and it will issue a jam or error code until the paper size is set properly.
