Re: printer 1600 JAM

Assuming you cannot lift the rear door and pull out, you will need to remove the back cover (take out the four screws) and take out the fuser module (it has heat temperature warnings on it so let it cool down before handling). The module has two sets of wires on either side that need to be disconnected. Four screws hold the module in place and need to be removed. The paper usually gets stuck in there. After removing the module, you may need to remove the small rear roller from the module by gently prying it up and out after removing four additional screws on the fuser that hold the metal bracket on the fuser in place. Removing these four screws (two on top, two on side) allows you to slide the bracket up and down and more easily access the small roller that needs to be removed so you can get all the paper out (it will likely be accordion-folded and really compressed in there).

Hi Gary, if you've done all this put off the printer and switch it on again. If it persists then a technician needs to open it.

What's the problem "jam in

There is a sensor flag that hangs down where the paper comes out on top, check that as there might be something stuck in there, also, pull the fuser out and look in there closely because it has a small exit sensor flag on it and could also be stuck in the open position( looks like a little black plastic piece that is spring loaded and when moved should snap back when released) give it a shot... GO HERE If this helps you out please remember to mark as FixYa!!! thanks...

Several sheets entered the printer at the same time and stuck. can't pull them forward or backward.

Step 1 Clear any loose paper from the paper tray. This will help you locate the jam. You will find it either in front, near the paper tray, or in the rear.

Step 2 To clear a paper jam near the paper tray, grip the paper and pull it firmly but gently from the printer. If you find a stack of papers jammed, grab from the middle of the stack and pull.

Step 3 For a rear jam, remove the back of the printer. When you find a free edge on the paper, grip it firmly and pull it out.

Step 4 Replace the back cover. Press the "Resume" button or turn off the printer, and then turn it back on. Your settings should reset.

Step 5 Try printing another document
