Why does the printer keeps having a paper jam fault on final exit slot?


It sounds like the exit sensor is sticking, so the printer doesn't know the paper has exited & throws a jam.

Jam in top 3015d


Sir/Madam

Occasionally, media becomes jammed during a print job. An error in the software program and a jam message on the printer control panel display indicate a media jam. To prevent a jam, see the following instructions:
  • Only print on media that meets HP specifications.
  • Only print on media that is not wrinkled, folded, or damaged.
  • Make sure that the printer is clean.
  • Make sure that the input trays are loaded properly and are not too full. See the start guide for more information about loading input trays.
When adding new media, always remove all of the media from the input tray and straighten the stack of new media. This helps prevent multiple sheets of media from feeding through the printer at one time, which reduces media jams

Clearing a media jam


CAUTION: Media jams might result in loose toner on the page. Use cold water to wash toner off of clothes, as hot water will permanently set the toner into fabric. To remove toner from hands, wash hands in cold water.
CAUTION: Do not use a sharp object, such as a pencil or scissors, to remove jammed media.
NOTE: When clearing jams, including jams in the output bin, always push the print-cartridge-door release to open the top cover, and remove the print cartridge. Keep the top cover open and the cartridge out until the jam has been cleared. Opening the top cover and removing the print cartridge relieves tension on the printer rollers, which makes removing jammed pages easier.


Push the print-cartridge-door release and open the top cover.
Figure 1: Pushing release and opening top cover

3f0c0681-aab8-41b1-8ccc-edbc8d10b083.gif

Grasp the handle of the print cartridge and remove it. Set it aside.
Figure 2: Removing print cartridge


1135f64a-e54d-412a-a38c-2d53092ee8b0.gif

CAUTION: To prevent damage to the print cartridge, do not expose it to light any longer than necessary. Place the print cartridge in a paper bag or other opaque container until it can be placed back in the printer.

With both hands, grasp the side of the media that is most visible (this includes the middle), and carefully pull it free from the device.
Figure 3: Jammed media most visible


38cea87e-25d6-4cfb-86b2-bbc3d933d279.gif

When the jammed media is removed from this area, replace the print cartridge.
Figure 4: Replacing printer cartridge


47beeaaf-6bbe-4681-9d09-8b877270789e.gif
Press the supporting springs, and close the top cover.
Open the media input tray and remove any media from the tray.

359bf88b-3c84-4de1-861e-08b6fe39b01f.gif
Slide the media guides inward as far as they will go. Press and hold down the tabs inside the media input tray, and slide the media input tray out of the printer.
Figure 6: Removing media input tray


92329010-15d2-4a56-a894-eacfba561eac.gif

With both hands, grasp the side of the media that is most visible (this includes the middle), and carefully pull it free from the device.
Replace the input tray into the device.
Figure 7: Replacing input tray


141b20dd-a71b-4e53-86c1-b5e589fa0d60.gif

After clearing the media jam, it may be necessary to shut down the printer, and then turn it on again.

NOTE: To add new media, remove all of the media from the input tray, straighten the stack of media after adding the new media, and then place the stack in the tray.
Clearing other media jams
CAUTION: Do not use a sharp object, such as a pencil or scissors, to remove jammed media.
If the media has jammed where it exits the printer, grasp the leading edge of the media and pull the media out through the output bin.
Figure 8: Removing jammed media from output bin


b9b1737a-16cc-4bd2-b9a7-77bad78ef641.gif

NOTE: If the printer is shut off before clearing the media jam, turn it on again, and then restart the printing or copying job.
Tips to avoid media jams
Make sure the automatic document feeder (ADF) media lever is in the correct position for the media being used. Slide it to the single-sheet setting (to the right) when scanning on thick media. Slide it to the multiple-sheet setting (to the left) when scanning on regular media.
Make sure that the input tray is not overfilled. The input tray capacity varies depending on the type of print media that is used.
Check that the input tray is securely in place.
Do not add print media into the input tray while the printer is printing.
Use only HP-recommended media types.
Do not let print media stack up in the output bin. The print media type and the amount of toner used affect the output bin capacity.
Check the power connection. Make sure that the power cord is firmly connected to both the device and the power supply box. Plug the power cord into a grounded AC power outlet.
Media jams occur in the automatic document feeder (ADF)

Occasionally, media becomes jammed during a copy, scan, or fax job.

A software error message indicates a media jam, and the Doc feeder jam Clear, Reload message appears on the printer control panel display to indicate a jam.
  • The ADF input tray is loaded incorrectly or is too full.
  • The media does not meet HP specifications.
Typical automatic document feeder (ADF) jam locations Input tray areas: If the page is sticking out of the input tray, try to remove it gently from the input tray without tearing the page.
Figure 9: Removing jammed media from input tray

Output paths: If the page is sticking out of the output bin, try to remove it gently without tearing the page.
Figure 10: Removing jammed media from output bin


e710c656-d551-4439-940d-878a82196f67.gif

  • Intermediate location: If the page is sticking out of the input tray and into the output area, see "To clear a media jam from the automatic document feeder (ADF)" below for instructions.

Automatic document feeder (ADF) media lever If a thick media is being used, slide the media lever to the single-sheet setting (to the right). Load a single sheet of media into the ADF.
When the copying, scanning, or faxing jobs are complete, slide the ADF media lever back to the multiple-sheet setting (to the left).
Clearing a media jam from the automatic document feeder (ADF)
  1. Using both hands, pull the printer control panel door toward you.
    Figure 11: Opening printer control panel door.
c5ce49eb-752a-4d44-bf67-99b4b9a44cc5.gif

  1. Remove any jammed media. Figure 12: Removing media
0cf6dfd4-a8b2-4153-8e19-52b3105abfda.gif

NOTE: Use only your hands to remove jammed media. Using other objects can damage internal parts.
Make sure that all of the pieces of media are removed, and then close the printer control panel door.

Paper jams frequently


Use a flashlight and check the paper path thoroughly. You may find bits of old paper, dust and debris. Perhaps a thorough blowing out with compressed air will help. Also, the paper feed mechanism may be damaged or worn.

Check the paper feed tray for bent papers. Also, try blowing over the sensors to clear any debris. Check for small pieces that may have been left behind. If all fails, unplug it from the outlet, then start it up. Good luck!

Card jams and ribbon keeps breaking


CLEANING THE INSIDE OF THE PRINTER
As you use your printer, dust and other foreign particles may accumulate inside
the printer?s case. These particles are attracted to the underside of the ribbon by
static produced during printing and can cause voids on the printed image.
Periodically, use the following procedure to remove dust and other foreign
particles:
1. Open the printer?s Top Covers.
2. Remove the ribbon and overlaminate from the printer.
3. Use a Cleaning Pad from the Printer Cleaning Kit or a soft, lint-free cloth
slightly moistened with isopropyl alcohol to wipe out all visible areas inside
the printer. Remove any debris that may be inside. Be extremely careful not to
let any alcohol drip inside the printer!
4. Once the cleaned areas are completely dry and free of foreign debris, re-install
the ribbon and overlaminate, and close the covers.
F. CLEARING A CARD JAM
If a card becomes jammed inside the printer, the LCD Display will indicate
approximately where it is jammed. At this point you can either try to correct the
problem and continue printing with the same card, or remove the card completely
and continue printing with a new card. Refer to the following steps for instructions
on doing either:
1. Leave the power ON, and open of the printer?s Top Covers.
2. Remove the ribbon and overlaminate as needed.
3. If you would like to try to correct the problem and continue printing with
the same card, do so by pressing the On/Cancel button to advance the card or
the Pause/Resume button to reverse the card. Use these buttons to help free the
card from its jam. Try not to move the card too far from where it was just
before the jam occurred. Once the jam is cleared, replace media, close the Top
Cover(s), and press the Pause/Resume button to resume printing.
4. If you would like to remove the jammed card completely, do so by using the
On/Cancel and Pause/Resume buttons to manually eject the card. Then,
replace media, close the Top Covers, and press the On/Cancel button. At this
point, the LCD Display will prompt you to either press the Pause/Resume
button or the On/Cancel button. Pressing the Pause/Resume button will cause
the printer to feed in a new card and reprint the job which originally jammed
along with all subsequent jobs still being sent. Pressing the On/Cancel button
will reboot the printer and cancel all jobs within the printer?s memory. In this
case, you must also cancel and resend the print jobs from your computer.
Section 7: Maintenance 53
Pro-L Card Printer User?s Manual
G. CLEARING A RIBBON OR OVERLAMINATE JAM
If the ribbon or overlaminate becomes stuck to a card or jammed inside the printer,
the LCD Display will indicate that it is jammed. Refer to the following steps to clear
the jam:
1. Leave the power ON, and open the printer?s Top Covers as necessary.
2. Remove the Take-Up core (the side with used ribbon or overlaminate on it)
from in between the two black Drive Hubs.
3. Steadily pull the ribbon or overlaminate free from where it is jammed. If stuck
to a card, pull the ribbon or overlaminate off the card and throw the card away.
If it is jammed underneath the rollers, press and hold down the printer?s
Pause/Resume button as you gently pull up on the ribbon or overlaminate. Do
not **** the ribbon or overlaminate to free it, since this will increase the chance
of breaking it. If it does happen to break, simply tape the broken end of the
supply roll directly onto the take-up roll. Then, wind a few inches worth of
ribbon or overlaminate from the supply roll onto the take-up roll. Be sure the
ribbon or overlaminate is passing beneath both the supply and take-up rolls.
4. Once the jam is cleared, replace media, close the Top Covers, and press the
On/Cancel button. At this point, the LCD Display will prompt you to either
press the Pause/Resume button or the On/Cancel button. Pressing the
Pause/Resume button will cause the printer to feed in a new card and reprint
the job which originally jammed along with all subsequent jobs still being sent.
Pressing the On/Cancel button will reboot the printer and cancel all jobs
within the printer?s memory. In this case, you must also cancel and resend the
print jobs from your computer.
H. CLEANING THE CARD FEED ROLLERS
To assure consistent printer operation, all of the gray card feed rollers within the
printer should be cleaned during every ribbon change (every 250 prints) or if the
rollers are noticeably dirty. To clean these rollers, use the special adhesive-backed
Cleaning Cards from the Printer Cleaning Kit. Refer to the following steps to run a
Cleaning Card through your printer:
1. Open the Top Covers and remove all print supplies from the printer. Leave the
printer power ON and the Top Covers open throughout this procedure. The
Cleaning Roller Assembly can also remain within the printer during this
cleaning process.
2. Remove the Cleaning Card?s adhesive backing paper.

I get an error messege (carrige jam)


I have found that when I slide back the carriage to the left by hand and expose the bottom right hand side, there has been an accumulation of ink that is preventing a part from sliding from front to back. Inspect the bottom right hand side where the black and color cartridges normally sit. You will find a flat sliding piece directly beneath the position where the cartridges normally sit, that will not slide forward to the front of the printer and back towards the back of the printer easily because of the ink that has accumulated and is causing a drag. I used q-tip swabs and some alcohol and cleaned out the rails that the piece slides in. Use a flashlight to inspect. After cleaning it appears that it is printing normally again. Repeat the process as needed. Bob in NC

RECURRING PAPER JAM - BROTHER MFC 5860 CN


I just bought the 5860 and have this issue right out of the gates. I discovered that the back lid causes the paper jam when using the bottom tray while examing with a flash light during a print job. I dislodged the back plate/lid (same lid you remove to pull paper jam out) out about 10mm and fastened the lid loosely to the back with a piece of tape on each side. The paper from the bottom tray does not slam against the back of the printer any more, thus more freedom of movement and no jams. Just successfully printed an 80 page document. You shouldn't have to do this with a new printer but I got it so cheap with all the rebates that I'm going to keep it and live with this fix. To sum up, the problem is a design flaw where the removable back plate is snapped in too tightly and contacts the bottom tray paper roller (& paper) during a print cycle. To fix you need to clear the path by pulling the back lid out slightly and taping each side with scotch tape to 'suspend'the back plate out about 10mm.a5999d3.jpg
