Printer error shows paper jam at paper tray and printer stops after printing 3 or 4 pages. I open and close the top access and printing resumes for 3 or 4 more pages...stops and shows paper jam at feed...


Try two things:

Fan the paper before placing in the tray.

Raise the humidity in the room to at least 40% to avoid electrostatic sticking of the paper. Store paper in 40% humidity area.

When printing should paper be fed from back of machine or from below? Currently paper is being fed from behind without black ink


It makes no difference which tray you feed from, it's a matter of personal preference, if black is not working, you probably need a new printhead, QY6-0049-000. The black is always the first to wear out on a printhead.

While printing with OKI C5600 very often error message pops up about jammed paper though no REAL jam happened. To solve I just open and close paper tray and front door. JAM PAPER error is real pain if...


Have you tried cleaning the paper feed roller(s)? Either soap & water OR isopropyl alchohol with a cotton ball will do, just make sure the rollers are dry before trying to print again, otherwise damage to imaging unit (drum/toner unit) could occurr. If the printer doesn't feed in the first place, the printer thinks it has a jammed paper, thus opening paper tray and front cover resets misfeed/ jam condition. Let me know your progress....Tim

Brother Laserjet 8860dn printer not picking up/feeding paper


The paper is not feeding from the paper tray. The loud click is alarming, but not the problem. Check the adjustments in the paper tray. The left and right guides should be snug, but the rear guide should give between a 1/16 inch and a 1/8 inch of free play.

To check, press the purple lever at the right front of the tray. The leading edge of the stack of paper in th etray should rise out of the tray so that the top piece of paper can be fed into the drum assembly. If the stack does not rise evenly, or will not rise, the rear adjustment is the problem.

You can inspect the springs in the paper tray by removing the plastic cover that is above the white translucent roller in the tray. To do this turn over the tray and release the catches with a little screwdriver. I do not think there is a missing spring. While you have the cover off clean the lnt from behind the roller.

I can't seem to control which tray the paper is fed from.


My idea is that you have the wrong printer for the job. Yes. It will automatically take anything that is put into the upper feed section, because it is actually the same feed section- it uses the exact same feed rollers to feed from the bypass tray as the main tray, this is designed only as a convenience for the occasion you want to print different size paper you may want to run, or for re-feeding for duplex

On a Canon MP 460 printer, the paper will not feed in straight causing constant paper jams.


If the paper feed roller is dirty, paper is not fed properly because the paper feed roller slips. Cleaning the paper feed roller could resolve the paper feeding problem. Please follow the instructions below to clean the Paper Feed Rollers directly from the unit.Caution: Since the cleaning process wears down the paper feed roller, perform this procedure only when necessary and no more than three (3) times.
  1. Ensure that the printer is powered on and remove any paper from the Auto Sheet Feeder (ASF).

  2. Press the <Menu> button.

  3. Use the right / left cursor button to select [Maintenance/settings], then press <OK>.

  4. Use the right / left cursor button to select [Maintenance], then press <OK>.

  5. Perform the paper feed roller cleaning three times.
    1. Use the up / down cursor button to select [Roller cleaning], then press <OK>.

    2. When prompted to start roller cleaning, use the up / down cursor button to select [Yes], then press <OK>. (The paper feed roller cleaning starts.)

  6. Check if the paper feed roller cleaning procedure resolved the issue.
    1. Load a sheet of letter-sized plain paper in the ASF and open the paper output tray.
    2. Use the up / down cursor button to select [Roller cleaning], then press <OK>.

    3. Use the up / down cursor button to select [Yes], then press the OK button. (Paper will be fed.)

  7. If paper is not fed properly, repeat step 6 up to three times.

Automatic Paper feed


Check the feeder roller inside the printer for any foreign substance stuck to the roller, this may cause it not to grip properly. You can also try a few sheets at a time and make sure the paper tray is gripping the paper, but not too hard. If this fails, the roller may be out of place somewhat, try to reposition it. Let me know how you get on.

Brother MFC - 7420: Paper will not feed!


Does it make the same sound if you feed the single sheet through the bypass with the paper drawer removed? I hate to say it, but your printer's paper feed mechanism may need replaced. Go to http://www.brother-usa.com/AskUs/default.aspx and ask Brother to diagnose this one; I think they'll confer with me and should be able to point you to a nearby Brother-authorized repair center. Let me know what happens!
