Paper jam 2 generally denotes the fuser unit. thats at the back, the bit that heats up, theres a flip up/down cover that once opened should show you if theres any paper in there, also check the sensor, little black arm, move freely and be sprung, if the sensor is missaligned it will denote a paper jam even when there is none be careful to let the fuser cool down, printer unplugged for 10 minutes or so, 180 degrees will hurt.

How do I clean toner from machine?


Probably it's the jammed paper that might caused the error. I suggest have it serviced by the technician. Be aware of the paper handling capacity of your machine to minimize jamming:

When faxing or making a copy the paper that you put in to fax or copy won;t go through unless you open up the front of the machine and then after it goes through it says Paper Jam.


Most likely, the document sensor actuator is misaligned on it's rocker. This is quite common, it is fairly easy to reset, but be careful you don't break it.

HP 1050 Fax Machine will not send out faxes. It sends the first page then prints out paper saying paper jam, but we have not paper jammed in the machine.


Sorry but still do not have it fixed...i printed off the manual for this fax but our problem is not on the trouble shooting list. But i'd think you would be able to tell how to fix it without charging for the sollution.

Double sided copying


http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Software%20Users%20Manual/SUM_DCP_7030_7040_MFC_7340_7345N_7440N_7840W_EN_1650.PDF

here is the manual p4 and p16 discuss the topic:
Duplex printing 1
The supplied printer driver supports duplex printing.
Guidelines for printing on both sides of the paper 1
�� If the paper is thin, it may wrinkle.
�� If paper is curled, turn over the stack, straighten it and then put it back in the paper tray or the Manual Feed
Slot.
�� If the paper is not feeding properly, it may be curled. Remove the paper, straighten it and turn over the
stack.
�� When you use the manual duplex function, it is possible that there may be paper jams or poor print quality.
If there is a paper jam, see Paper jams in the User’s Guide. If you have a print quality problem, see
Improving the print quality in the User’s Guide.
Manual duplex printing 1
The machine prints all the even-numbered pages on one side of the paper first. Then, the Windows® driver
instructs you (with a pop-up message) to reinsert the paper. Before reinserting the paper, straighten it well,
or you may get a paper jam. Very thin or thick paper is not recommended.
Simultaneous scanning, printing and faxing 1
Your machine can print from your computer while sending or receiving a fax in memory, or while scanning a
document into the computer. Fax sending will not be stopped during PC printing. However, when the machine
is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the PC printing operation, and then continues printing when
copying or fax receiving has finished.


�� Manual Duplex
Check Manual Duplex. In this mode, the machine prints all the even numbered pages first. Then the
printer driver stops and shows the instructions required to re-install the paper. When you click OK the odd
numbered pages are printed. There are six types of manual duplex binding directions available for each
orientation.
�� Booklet Printing
When you want to print a booklet, use this function. To make the booklet, fold the printed pages down the
middle.
�� Binding Offset
If you check the Binding Offset option, you can also specify the offset for binding in inches or millimeters

Bad print with repeated text on fax or copies


Make a copy and shut the power off or open a door when the paper is 1/2 way into the machine. You are just basically going to have to try to time it. When you hear paper being fed into your machine (the blank paper from the tray) count about 3-5 seconds and then open a door on the machine or shut the power off. IF you have timed it correctly, the paper should be 1/4 - 1/2 way through the machine. Remove the jammed paper **** But be careful..... The toner is NOT FUSED at this point so it will rub off if you brush it up against your clothes or hands. If the image is doubled at this point.. then its the drum unit. If the image is good at this point, then it is probably your fuser.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

Copying


You should be able to open the machine up easily and see the jam. It is a very small unit and no plece for the paper to hide. Does the unit use a film ribbon to print from. If so, remove the ribbon to see the jam.
