SOURCE: Paper jam Brother MFC-215C

Thanks, your suggestion led me to the solution, the jam not in the rollers or a senser, but it's in the dock of the printer head, when the printer head moved across, I shone a torch into the dock and saw a black thing, so eventually pulled it and realised that it was paper and it had been dyed black by the ink so that's wht it would be hard to spot!!!! Thanks again

Paper feeder pulls multiple sheets of paper


PULL ALL PAPER OUT OF MACHINE EVEN THE SUPPLY, UNPLUG OR TURN OFF THE POWER TO THE UNIT, PUT A STACK OF PAPER IN THE SUPPLY TRAY & GENTLY PUSH FORWARD NOT FORCING IT UNTIL IT STOPS. TURN POWER BACK ON & TRY AGAIN. YOU MAY HAVE TO REPEAT THIS 2-4 TIMES BUT IT WORKED FOR MY HP DESKJET F4180 ALL IN ONE.

I have a paper jam in my OfficeMax paper shredder. How can I fix this problem?


Usually for a jam you just need to reverse it. If it is really jammed you may have a staple caught in there or too many sheets of paper. If you unplug it and then see if you can pull out the jam. If it is a staple you may need to use needle nose pliers to get enough of a grip to get it out. If this has seen heavy use and lots of multiple pages then you could have burned out the motor. These are not much more complicated that scissors so there isn't much to do to fix them. Most don't like staples or more than 2-3 pages max at a time (if that many) even if they claim more than that.

We have a Ricoh Aficio CL3500N and every time we print the paper jams and we get the "Remove Misfeed A: Internal Path". I remove the jam and when it tries to print again we get the same thing,...


There may be an obstruction inside the printer. Try this....remove the paper from the paper tray and put paper in the handfeed tray (front of the machine) If it feeds from that tray it means that the feed rollers in the bottom cassette are worn.

I keep getting paper jams. Even if I put one sheet of paper in at a time, the paper keeps jamming and won't print.


Hi
I live in the mid west - during our significantly humid days my 926 wouldn't pull in any paper. I tried a lot of home grown techniques but none worked. I finally raised the air temp in my office which tended to dry out the paper and that worked. Of course your problem could be a broken gear or a worn out feed tire - also something stuck in the printer.

Message says Paper Jam, but there is no paper


Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

Prints a couple of pages - then jams


Well, for now it seems to be fixed - I opened up the paper tray and there is a little part that grabs the paper on the front of the tray - kinda sticky - I just took a paper cutter and put a couple of scratches on it and it is grabbing the paper for now. I do have some of those to use for replacements - but I had just changed it about a month ago and don't think it needed to be changed out again - they usually last quite a while. So, we'll see how long this lasts. We do a lot of printing on this thing and it has been a great printer - maybe we are just wearing it out!

My suggestion is to take the printer to the highest floor in your building open a window and see if it can fly. or just use it as a $200 paper weight because after 3 months it has been to the shop 3 times and still is not working they way it should. Bad equipment bad support, and just plain bad product all around.
