If I load my paper at the 'proper' height, it will not feed. If I push the paper down too far, I get a 'paper jam' message. What works for me (even though it's a royal pain) is to feed 1 sheet of paper at a time. Put 1 sheet in so it's level with the top of the feed tray, then gently push it down 3/4 of an inch. That works for me. Good luck.

paper feed clutches are weak compared to what they were in this series you may
have to replace the clutch. Bud, after doing some research you need to clean

Dears eveenz, It seems that paper feed roller of your printer is broken. This part is integrated in drive assy. You need to replace drive assy of the printer in order to feed the paper properly.

Carefully remove the paper tray and the paper. The sheet(s) that are stuck can then be firmly but gently pulled backwards out of the feed input.
To avoid the problem check these possible solutions. 1 The paper itself. Check that the paper tray
is not overfull. this can cause multiple sheets to feed through. Also
make sure that you use good quality paper suitable for the particular
type of printer. Always keep the paper dry Damp (not wet) paper will
also cause the sort of problem you describe. another good reason for
not keeping to much paper in the paper tray. Paper will keep better in
the packet than in the tray. Always store the paper in the packet in a
warm dry place. I keep mine near a radiator and away from the Air con.
The printer driver. Download the latest driver for your printer from
the manufacturer and update the printer driver, via the control
panel/printers. If you don't know how to do this you can simply
uninstall the printer and then install it again using the new printer
There IS something stuck in the feed path. If the paper starts to feed and then crinkles on the feed side, there is an object stopping the paper moving forward.
Lay the machine on it's back and take a sheet of very stiff card (A5 size approx) and push it through the paper path in reverse. So start where the paper would normally exit and push the card in. You may need to lift the pinch rollers just behind the print head by hand to aid the card through. Keep the card to the side that would normally crinkle but beware of the paper sensor flag. If you force it you could break it off.
Once you get past the pinch rollers behind the print head, push a little further then start to move the card in and out but along the length of the rollers. You should find that sufficient to push out whatever is in the path and having the machine on it's back will help it fall clear of the feed mechanism.
If it does not fall out using this method you will have to remove the covers and try to remove the ASF to get at the object.
