By keeping the printer clean at all times, by not using glossy papers, by maintaining the recommended service steps on user manual, and most important never bang or push the tray/feeder hard inside the printer, or misplace your manual...let me know how that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so we can improve on it with your help. God bless

Having constant paper jams - the paper does feed and the document prints about 3/4 of the page, but crinkles up before exiting the printer, like the slit where the paper is supposed to come out after...


If the paper is jamming at the exit rollers, you will be need to clean the rubber on the rollers. It gets shiny and does not grip the paper to take it away.
I clean the rollers with Isopropyl Alcohol and the green kitchenlb_icon1.png scouring pads. When the rollers are shiny they often have white/grey markings on them. Keep scrubbing until rubber is roughened up.

My paper jams up and crinkles when it gets under the ink cartrige the machine says remove cartridge, I do, I take out the jammed paper click go and it does it again. It printed up to page 45 of 50 and now...


Kindly check the Maint Count in the Configuration Menu by turning off the printer, then pressing and holding the Select and the Return buttons while turning on the printer. Select Maint Count Value. If it reached 300,000, maintenance kit should be replaced. If it's below 300,000, fuser and redrive may need to be replaced.

After clearing a paper jam, it now jams everytime I use it and crinkles the paper.


for this model, the drum unit have to be cleaned and free from dirt and toner.. and the common problem is the eject roller...they are located at the top of the printer, the long black roller with few hard rubber roller.. once this roller is harden, it will give paper jam problem..and the paper will crumble each time you print....especially when the printer have printed many pages... you will need to send it to the tech to replace the eject roller.

When printing paper comes out all "crinkled" maybe roller problem?


It the paper comes out crinkled or accordion looking then it is your fuser. Check where your the paper comes out of. There might be a piece of paper jammed in there that is causing this. If no obstuctions then it might be the roller on the fuser cracking and cause it to crinkle the paper. The fuser is the last thing the paper goes through before coming out. It "fuses" the toner to the paper.

Paper is coming out wrinkled in one spot


Most of the crinkled paper issues I deal with have to do with the fuser roller lining going bad. If this is your issue the crinkle will be a vertical line from the leading edge to the trailing edge. You will need a new fuser.

PAPER CRINKLING


First check the paper path for something in the paper path. Staple, paper clip, etc, causing the paper to twist. Reseat the imaging unit and see if the transfer unit is seated properly.
But, What sounds most likely is that the fuser needs to be replaced. The rollers are most likely getting pretty bad inside that unit.
If I recall correctly, it is in the $200 range to replace.

Paper Jam E54


The one crinkled at the end on the left door is the problem.
Since it jammed it stops the whole copying process, ( you were most likely doing duplex)
The reasons for the crinkled paper are
1- the fingers or claws at the exit are worn and catch the paper instead of sliding them out.
2- you are copying something that has a black edge and is getting caught on those fingers ( or claws)
3- The rollers at the exit are in bad shape :

anyway check out this link and go to error codes :
