Re: paper jam problem in laser printer 4100

If this happens every time you need to replace the fuser. but there is a possibility it could be the main gear drive assembly, 9 times out of 10 it's the fuser. a gear on the fuser usually breaks a few teeth. the fuser is very easy to replace and is a part that will eventually need replacing on all printers.

The paper keeps jamming in our Samsung laser printer 660 nd. We bought heavier paper for a laser printer but it still jams.

The ideal paper is around 80 GSM (gm2) if you are having problems with a BRAND NEW REAM of standard copy paper then your printer will need service.

paper that is thicker/heavier than this can actually cause more jams and problems and show worn out rollers earlier

These printers only tend to jam at the entry (pickup) near the base of the printer or in the fuser unit (hot area near the top)

if you are getting jams in multi page documents, have a look at which area the most crumpled piece of paper is in before you try and remove it.

the pick up rollers and separation pads are relatively cheap but the fuser units can be a bit pricey.

check paper jam error you need do:
1) between paper input tray and cartridge check any pieces paper
2) between cartridge and fuser area do same thing
3) check fuser and pressure roller(near fuser) any pieces of paper there

Hp 4100 paper is jammed between rollers the back panel should come off? and then how do I get fuser out to unjam paper

Hi Jacque,
I gather the paper has got into the fuser and cannot get into the output bin. Few things...
1. Clean output rollers. Are rollers moving?
2. Check gears on the fuser unit. Any broken or worn gears?
3. Check default paper size setting in printer, paper size setting on tray, paper size setting in printer driver and document page.
4. Leave the back door open. Does the printer still jams? If it does, see it could be paper pick up problem. Use different trays or the manual feed. Also the fuser unit could be the problem.
5. All else fails, replace the output assembly.

HP Laserjet 4100 series , paper jam output tray.( on top of the printer ). The roller under the topcover is turning the wrong way. The paper can't get out of the printer, and jams between the upper roller...

Hi F_bulsara,
First thing to try is to flip the paper over in the input tray. There are 2 sides to paper. One side may curl a bit too much due to heat of the fuser and get caught near the output rollers.

Unless the Output Assembly was assembled wrong, it is impossible for the rollers to turn the wrong way. The gear in the fuser drives the output assembly. The top rollers are rolling out.
If the rollers are not rolling, then one of the gears must be broken or missing. The output rolllers might need cleaning.

Next check the fuser unit. Disconnect power to printer and turn printer round. Remove the back output tray and the two small covers (left and right). Undo the 2 screws that hold the fuser in place. Pull the fuser out. Check the gears on side of the fuser. A broken gear in the fuser could cause this problem.
