Question about Brother DCP 130C All-In-One InkJet Printer
Hi, I get a paper jam when using photo paper, it works OK with standard printing paper. It used to be Ok with 180 gsm then jammed with 240gsm, but now also jams with 180 gsm.
This could be from a couple of causes. One is the pinch roller or feed roller is hard or polished. And the other is the paper setting isn't right as the roller has worn from use.
A pinch roller is the rubber roller that grips and pulls the paper. Photo paper is much smoother so it is harder to get a grip. There should be a adjustment for the thickness of the paper. This will be a little lever that physically moves the rollers a small amount and lets the grip properly. It is usually inside near the roller and will should up under a cover. Check your printer manual for the exact location. You may find that it wants one setting for photo paper and another for normal.
You should also try cleaning the roller with some isopropyl alcohol and a lint free paper towel. Apply a bit of iso to the towel and then wipe the roller. It should change from slightly shiny to a dull after the alcohol flashes off. Don't worry about which roller to clean, just do all of the rubber ones. You will get a bit of black on the towel and not a big amount. This combination of old rubber and dirt or dust. Unless you have other problem this fixes most feed problems. If you do a lot of photo paper then you may have to do this again.
