Minolta 2350DL laser printer paper jam that will not clear
Have a severe wad of paper jammed at the rear on the user roller.
The paper wad is on the right rear and have only been able to get small pieces out over last two hours. Trying additional paper only jams up machine. The user roller has some releases which allow the roller to move freely, but the jam remains. Have taken off rear panel in hope of access, but no luck.

IF you can find a fuser. The Di 350 is a legacy Minolta, now Konica Minolta. mite be able to find refurbished unit. If accordion check to make sure the pick fingers are not broken they prevent paper from wrapping around the fuser roller. one mite be broken causing it to hit it.
Clearing Paper Jams If the printer's control panel displays a paper jam message, look for paper in the locations indicated in Figure 22, then see the procedure for clearing the paper jam. You might need to look for paper in other locations than indicated in the paper jam message. If the location of the paper jam is not obvious, look first in the top cover area.When clearing paper jams, be very careful not to tear the paper. If a small piece of paper is left in the printer, it could cause additional jams. If paper jams are a recurring problem, see page 78.(A paper jam message might also display if the rear door is open.)
The top cover of the printer must be opened and then closed to clear a paper jam message.Paper jams can occur at the following locations:Output areas(top and rear)Go to page 75.
Loose toner might remain in the printer after a paper jam, but thetoner should clear after a few sheets are printed.
Replacing the pickup rollers seems like a drastic first step. I would check to make sure that the paper being used is suitable for this printer and it is in good consition. You might try a different paper to see if it makes a difference.
1. Look for a piece of paper jammed in the rollers. 95% of the time that is what it is.
2. You have a paperclip or paper wad in a feed roller or gear.
3. The hard and easy way to find the jam is to feed a piece of paper and then before it feeds all the way through unplug power to the machine about the time where it usually jams.(several times may be necessary) Then follow the piece of paper to where it jams to find the location of the clogged paper.
there are two black plastic flags that detect paper jams. one is high up just below the fuser unit. The other is roughly half way up the printer between two small transfer rollers very close to the opto sensor. Apparently it frequetly gets jammed behind the plastic cover, and once jammed you would never realise it is there.
I managed to prise it out from behind the cover and the "paper jam at transfer roller" message was cleared.
Unless you know it is there and hiding it is not obvious at all that anything is wrong.
