You have a foreign object in the paper way. Remove the paper and turn in upside down and give it a firm shake.

You should hear the object rattling in it. If it does not fall out. use a small flashlight to locate it and the remove it.
after removing it, give it another shake, and keep removing and shaking until ther is no more rattling.
Then it should work fine.

Every time i print it keeps getting jams

You'll have to open up the printer and remove any paper pieces that are blocking paper delivery. There's usually a panel on the back of the printer that removes easily, maybe with a twist of a lever, and you might look in the front too. I couldn't find a troubleshooter manual online, but you should have one in your documentation; It should tell you where to look for jams.

Prints one side fine turn paper over to print other side and it twists paper sidways and tears it in half.

Hi. It's hard to say without more details, but two things come up quickly to mind. 1) is the paper only meant to be printed on one side? Some are, and should indicate so (i.e. 'load this side up'). 2) the paper is goofed up (bent, flexed, twisted, loosened up, etc.) by the first printing and therefore is getting jammed.
I'd suggest changing brand of paper and / or be very careful loading, as this seems like a pretty regular paper jam situation.

Paper jam

This video explains how to resolve a recurring paper jam on your product. It sounds like the rollers on the rear access door may not be working properly and are making jamming the paper as it starts to feed up into the printer? Check the rollers on your rear access door and see if they have some give in them and roll freely.

Printer keeps on jamming paper

Dear all,
I will try to help you. Paper jam error may be caused by some possibilities. So, please notice this indication:
  • If the printer status is READY immediately after Power ON then Paper Jam Error message appears while feeding the paper: Sheet Feeder Unit is faulty or any other material (such as broken paper) present inside paper path blocking paper end to reach paper feed sensor.
  • If Paper Jam Error messages appears immediately after Power ON: Paper feed sensor or logic board is faulty
Corrective action:
  • Remove the material from paper path
  • Replace Sheet Feeder Unit
  • Replace Paper Feed Sensor / Logic Board
Please rate me as Fixya if you find this useful for you. Thanks.

Printer will not allow paper to flow freely; it jams on the left side and prints crooked.

first cancel all the prints going on and switch off and on the printer and keep the paper slowly

Paper jam cleared - but still won't work

turn off the printer for a while then back on again, if it still refuse to print, try printing a test page.
