The cardstock you are using might be to heavy or rough for the 2600n to use.

FOr this printer HP recommends paper no thicker than 0.18 mm (7.0 mils), and between 100 and 250 on the Sheffield "smoothness" scale.

More information on recommended paper weight and smoothness is available here:

Paper always jams even without starting,,,,specially when im going to print cardstock, it never works


Jams from where? Need more info. Cardstock must be printed from the Bypass Tray ONLY. Make sure you select the proper paper type from the Printer Properties tab in the driver.

Paper jam for card stock on xerox ColorQube 8870


Select "Cardstock" in the 'paper type' menu, either through your operating system's 'Print' dialog, or via the printer's front panel (or select it both places, just to be sure).

If the jams continue with your cardstock, there's another cardstock option in each of those menus. It is "Glossy Cardstock". That worked for me.

Note this slows the printing to half speed.

Can't print on cardstock (110lb) with out the printer jamming...


You must change the printer settings in software to let it know it is using cardstock. This will adjust the roller height so the printer will not jam.

When receiving a FAX or printing a receipt, it repeatedly jams. The paper is found inside the back cover baked into a folded fan shape.


This folded pattern indicates that the jam is being caused by a physical obstruction in the paper path section. I would suggest manually feeding a thick piece of cardstock paper and seeing if you can find the location of the jam, as it is most likely a piece of trapped paper or plastic tab that has come out of its original position.

My piece of cardstock paper keeps jamming barely out of the tray. is there something i can do to have it go all the way through. I have a samsung clp-315 laser printer.


Yes, you have to change the print properties on the computer to let the printer know it is using cardstock. Please refer to the owners manual to get the information. The manual can be found at www.samsung.com under the support section.

Paper too thick?


You will need to use the manual feed and insert the cardstock one page at a time. First look at the rear of the printer for a purple dial. Roll the dial downward. This will allow the printer to exit straight out the back of the machine. Allow enough room at the rear of the printer so the cardstock doesn't hit anything on the way out. Next look at the front of the machine at the **** just above the paper tray. You'll see an envelope icon. Align the cardstock when manual feeding one sheet at a time to the left side of the **** next to the envelope icon. When you hit "file, print" select MANUAL FEED in the print window.

The 4L will only do cardstock by one at a time in the way noted above as the feed system isn't strong enough to make the sharp bend coming out of the tray or in the back to bend it around and into the top tray.

Paper keeps jamming


To print card stock you must us the manual slot in the front of the printer and feed one at a time. Also open the back flap door so the card stock can exit out the back instead of trying to bend around for the try. That will give you the staight paper path that your thick stock needs.
