When printing in duplex mode, the upper right corner of most pages is folded over. The paper does not jam and the job finishes. What could be causing this?

I have a paper jam at the back of my printer, where do i open it


Hopefully this will help you. Good luck !

Causes of jams

NOTE If you are experiencing jams in the duplex paper path, make sure that the duplex-tray

lever is set to the correct media size for your country/region. Open the duplex-paper-path door

and look at the embossed arrow on the lever. Make sure that it points to the media size for your

country/region. If the size needs to be changed, push the lever all the way in for duplex printing

on letter- and legal-size media, or pull it all the way out for duplex printing on A4-size media.

Occasionally, paper or other print media can become jammed during a print job. Some causes include

the following events:

? The print media that is being used does not meet HP specifications.

? The media is damaged or has objects attached to it, such as staples or paper clips.

? The environment in which the print media was stored is too humid or too dry.

? The input trays are loaded incorrectly or overfilled, or the media guides are not set correctly.

? Too many sheets have accumulated in an output area, or sheets are blocking an output area.

? Media is added to or removed from an input tray during a print job or an input tray is removed from

the all-in-one during a print job.

? The cartridge door is opened during a print job.

Re - Phaser 8200DP Solid wax printer; very often doesn't pick up paper from bottom tray, resulting in 'jam' message. Also, tends to fold the top corner of a two-sided (duplex) print job on exiting after...


Clean the pick up rollers with alcohol. They need to be really grippy.
If it's folding the corner of paper I expect there is a bit of torn paper stuck in it.

Dell 966 aio printer....paper jam and I cannot release paper from roller. Is there a way to release roller?


Have you read the Manual on paper removal? It mentions a rear panel that can be removed. That might free up the rollers:
If the paper jam is near the paper input tray:
1. Remove the paper tray.
2. Pull firmly on the paper to remove it.
3. Replace the paper tray.
4. Press the Select button .
5. Resend your print job to print any missing pages.
If the paper jam is not visible:
1. Turn off the printer.
2. Lift the printer unit.
3. Firmly grasp the paper, and gently pull it from the printer.
4. Close the printer unit.
5. Turn on the printer, and print the document again.
If the jam is located in the duplex unit or near the rear access door:
1. If you have a duplex unit, remove it.
2. Open the rear access door.
3. Firmly grasp the paper, and gently pull it from the printer.
4. Close the rear access door.
5. Re-install the duplex unit.
6. Press the Select button to continue printing.
If the paper jam occurs near the ADF:
1. Lift the ADF cover located to the left of the ADF input tray.
2. Firmly grasp the paper, and then gently pull it from the printer.
3. Close the ADF cover.
4. Press the Select button .
5. Resend your print job to print any missing pages.

How can I print booklets?


One sheet booklets generally are two-sided printing jobs, accordion fold, gate fold or quarter or half fold styles. Determine which of these styles your's will be and make a "dummy"....it's as simple as folding the paper according to its finished form and marking each of the panels with scaled type or pictures. By making the dummy, the layout will reveal itself when opened and flattened. You will most likely have to "flip" the pages and print each side at separate times unless your machine is a "duplex" type of printer. The "dummy" is the key to the puzzle. Simple as folding and unfolding the panels.

Double sided copying

here is the manual p4 and p16 discuss the topic:
Duplex printing 1
The supplied printer driver supports duplex printing.
Guidelines for printing on both sides of the paper 1
�� If the paper is thin, it may wrinkle.
�� If paper is curled, turn over the stack, straighten it and then put it back in the paper tray or the Manual Feed
Slot.
�� If the paper is not feeding properly, it may be curled. Remove the paper, straighten it and turn over the
stack.
�� When you use the manual duplex function, it is possible that there may be paper jams or poor print quality.
If there is a paper jam, see Paper jams in the User’s Guide. If you have a print quality problem, see
Improving the print quality in the User’s Guide.
Manual duplex printing 1
The machine prints all the even-numbered pages on one side of the paper first. Then, the Windows® driver
instructs you (with a pop-up message) to reinsert the paper. Before reinserting the paper, straighten it well,
or you may get a paper jam. Very thin or thick paper is not recommended.
Simultaneous scanning, printing and faxing 1
Your machine can print from your computer while sending or receiving a fax in memory, or while scanning a
document into the computer. Fax sending will not be stopped during PC printing. However, when the machine
is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the PC printing operation, and then continues printing when
copying or fax receiving has finished.


�� Manual Duplex
Check Manual Duplex. In this mode, the machine prints all the even numbered pages first. Then the
printer driver stops and shows the instructions required to re-install the paper. When you click OK the odd
numbered pages are printed. There are six types of manual duplex binding directions available for each
orientation.
�� Booklet Printing
When you want to print a booklet, use this function. To make the booklet, fold the printed pages down the
middle.
�� Binding Offset
If you check the Binding Offset option, you can also specify the offset for binding in inches or millimeters

Duplexing jams


Some of the rollers inside the printer have becomes slick with paper dust on the surfaces of the rollers. There is a printer cleaner paper available at most office supply stores and online. It is sticky on both sides. You run a sheet through the printer a couple of times and it removes the dust from the rollers. In your case, run the paper through the duplex unit too.

Duplexer problem


First, the machine always prints the first page first. Make sure you have the right driver (4 plus and not 4)and check the settings in the device settings of your printer driver on the pc. Also make sure the duplex unit is for the 4 plus and not the 4.
