    My printer constantly jams trying to use the manual feed tray. I tried plain paper, bond paper, certificate paper (not all that thick), etc and they all jam. The tray pulls the paper at first then it beeps with a jam. I'm bringing it back today. These things print find on the HP 4500DN I have at work.

    Too bad, it would have been a nice multifunction. Also, the toner comes off the paper if you try to flip and print on the opposite side.. this printer did anyway.

    Jams constantly ever since I removed the packaging tape from the rear removable piece to correct a Paper Jam! I cannot print one damn thing. Very frustrating!

    paper jams constantly

  • proudnanarm Mar 11, 2008

    I only had my printer about a week when a paper jammed. My daughter took the paper out properly and I tried to print my several pages again. It jammed again on the same page that it jammed on the first time. We tried fixing this ourselves, but it continued the same malfunction over and over. Since I had not purchased the Apple extra warranty (I purchased the printer at the same time as my new Mac thru Apple) I could not afford to get this fixed. I have just now purchased the warranty and I will have someone come to my house.

    Paper gets caught up in the transport mechanism and gets scrunched up like an accordion. very difficult to remove it, even with small fingers and forceps. Thinking of dumping the printer. How do you open it up?

The samsung printer have three paper jam sensors. First (paper jam 0) after the feed rollers. Second (paper jam 1) at the left of the feed rollers and third (paper jam 2) at the fuser unit where it is hot. You can see the actuator between the two white rollers. Paper jam 2 is mainly cause by the scrappers out of position on the side of the upper heat rollers.You will have to clean it and put it back into position.

When printing documents no matter how few or how many pages, paper gets stuck in the middle of printing.

Try using regular paper on unit as specified by Samsung. If that does not resolve the issue then the hassle lies with the paper feed mechanism. Often a good cleaning of all the rollers in the path can take care of the issue.

Printer malfunction

What model printer is this? Does it jam in the rear every time, or do some papers get through?

I can't really give you any specifics on how to avoid the jam without knowing what brand and model of printer you're using, but as soon as you get me that information, I will find you a solution.

2. Press and hold # and 6 keys.
3. While holding those keys plug the power cord back in.
4. Wait until the screen goes blank before you release those keys.
5. Follow on printer screen instructions.


. Turn the printer power off.
2. Press and hold GO.
3. Turn the printer power back on and continue to hold GO until the Attention light turns on.

What this light sequence means that the printer has a paper jam.

When a paper jam occurs, the printer stops and the operator panel's Paper Jam light and Continue button lights come on. Press and release Continue twice quickly to display the specific secondary error paper jam light sequence.

How to clear Paper Jam

Press Continue button twice quickly to see the secondary error code.

To get the secondary error codes

When the Error light (!) and Continue button lights are both on, a secondary error has occurred.

When the Paper Jam light (4th light) and Continue button lights are both on, a paper jam secondary error has occurred.

Press and release Continue button twice quickly to display the secondary error code light sequence.

Press Continue button to resume printing once all the jammed pages are cleared from the paper path.

We recommend that you clear the entire paper path when a paper jam occurs.

To clear a paper jam:

1 If you are feeding paper from a tray, remove the tray, and then remove any jams.

2 Open the front cover and remove the print cartridge assembly.

NOTE: Do not leave the print cartridge assembly exposed to direct light for an Extended period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.

3 Remove any jams in the area behind the print cartridge assembly.

4 Lift the flap at the front of the printer and remove any jams beneath the flap.

5 Open the rear exit and remove any jams.

6 After you have cleared the jams, reinstall the print cartridge assembly, make sure all printer covers and trays are closed, and then press Continue button to resume printing.

NOTE: The printer reprints the pages that caused the paper jam.

What does it mean if the red light is blinking continually?

It means that the printer is out of paper, out of ink, or that there is a paper jam or other malfunction.

There is a paper jam

The solution depends on which type of printer and which model it is. Generally, you must open the access door/compartment and try to get the paper out. I had a bad paper jam last week and I had to open the access door (same access area you use to change out the ink cartridges) and do a lot of pulling and maneuvering. Don't force the paper too much or you might break the printer.
