Printer head going one side and given beep

IF the jammed paper tears and you cannot remove the paper either from the paper output slot or from the transport unit, or the jammed paper remains inside the machine, remove the paper following the procedure below. 1. Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply. 2. Open the paper output cover. Remove the paper on the front tray if any.
    Do not touch the clear film (A). If the paper or your hands touch these parts and blot or scratch them, the machine can be damaged.

3. Make sure that the FINE cartridge holder does not hang over the paper. If the FINE cartridge holder hangs over the paper, move the FINE cartridge holder to the right edge or the left edge whichever is easier to remove the paper. When you move the FINE cartridge holder, hold the FINE cartridge holder and slide it slowly to the right edge or the left edge.
4. Hold the jammed paper with your hands.
If the edge of paper is jammed near the paper output slot, pull the edge of paper to the position where you can hold it with your hands.
5. Pull the paper slowly not to tear it, then pull the paper out.

6. Make sure that all the jammed paper is removed. If the paper is torn, a piece of paper may remain inside the machine. Check the following and remove the piece of paper if it remains.
7. Close the paper output cover, then reload the paper.
All print jobs in the queue are canceled. Reprint if necessary.

Had paper jammed - removed jammed paper - but nerror light still on

Before you can clear a "PAPER JAM" or "PRINTER JAM" error, you must locate where in the unit the paper is jammed.
First, unplug the machine for safety and disconnect the telephone line. Next, follow these instructions based on where the paper jam is located.

Paper is jammed inside the paper tray:
  1. Pull the paper tray out of the machine.
  1. Pull out the jammed paper to remove it.
  1. Reload the paper in the paper tray.

  2. Reinstall the paper tray.

Paper is jammed inside the machine:

  1. Remove the jam clear cover on the back of the unit. Pull the jammed paper out of the machine.
  1. Re-insert the jam clear cover.

  2. If you can not pull out the jammed paper, lift the scanner cover from the right-hand side of the machine until it locks securely into the open position.

  3. Remove the jammed paper.


  4. Check the print head's position. In the example photo the print head is positioned at the left hand side of the platen area.


  5. Gently move the print head to the center.


    Note Be careful to not force the print head to move.
    If the print head is positioned at the far right hand side, you cannot move it. Please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".

  6. Examine under the print head. If anything is found, remove it.


    Note Use a flashlight if necessary to check thoroughly.

  7. Lift the scanner cover to release the lock. Gently push the scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover.


  8. Reconnect the power cord and telephone line.

Note To prevent paper jams, do not put multiple kinds of paper in the paper tray at the same time.

If the message continues to appear on the LCD, the machine will require repair. Please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".

Thanks for using fixya......

The problem is normally on the exit sensor.Please check the exit sensor if its in the right possition.If the exit sensor is in the right position,also check the registration sensor if its sitting in the right position.Normally the problem is that the sensors (either the 'exit ' or 'registration' sensors) will be not in their correct position.If the two sensors are ok,there should be a small paper lleft in the machine

Recurent paper jam on Cannon Pixma MX300

Some printers have a certain paper height or paper load you can have loaded at one time. I would try loading a smaller amount of paper and see if that helps. If it still does the same thing your paper thickness lever may be damaged.

Machine thinks there's a paper jam

ok what you have done is when you have pulled the paper jam out you have either still have a small piece of paper over the sensor or you have broken the sensor itself it sounds like the later, most people tend to pull out the paper backwards against the feed rollers and sensors just below the feed rollers and it causes the sensor to fall out or break i have seen this so many times,

Paper jam in fuser

Remove the right hand side cover of the printer, (loosen the two screws, one is at the back).... see the small stepper motor at the top right?
Rotate the white gear teeth connected to it, just visible, DOWNWARDS, ANTI CLOCKWISE, using a blunt screwdriver or something, a few teeth at a time, this will eventually rotate the fuser roller and the paper will come out of the bottom of the fuser.

I would say that you have a paper jam or maybe you did have one & pulled the paper out backwards & you may have damaged the little paper switch right down the bottom of the paper slot if thats the case you will need to take it to a proper repairer
