Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

    Had paper jammed - removed jammed paper - but nerror light still on


    Before you can clear a "PAPER JAM" or "PRINTER JAM" error, you must locate where in the unit the paper is jammed.
    First, unplug the machine for safety and disconnect the telephone line. Next, follow these instructions based on where the paper jam is located.


    Paper is jammed inside the paper tray:
    1. Pull the paper tray out of the machine.

    1. Pull out the jammed paper to remove it.

    1. Reload the paper in the paper tray.

    2. Reinstall the paper tray.


    Paper is jammed inside the machine:


    1. Remove the jam clear cover on the back of the unit. Pull the jammed paper out of the machine.

    1. Re-insert the jam clear cover.

    2. If you can not pull out the jammed paper, lift the scanner cover from the right-hand side of the machine until it locks securely into the open position.

    3. Remove the jammed paper.

    4. Check the print head's position. In the example photo the print head is positioned at the left hand side of the platen area.

    5. Gently move the print head to the center.

      Note Be careful to not force the print head to move.
      If the print head is positioned at the far right hand side, you cannot move it. Please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".



    6. Examine under the print head. If anything is found, remove it.

      Note Use a flashlight if necessary to check thoroughly.





    7. Lift the scanner cover to release the lock. Gently push the scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover.

    8. Reconnect the power cord and telephone line.

    Note To prevent paper jams, do not put multiple kinds of paper in the paper tray at the same time.

    If the message continues to appear on the LCD, the machine will require repair. Please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".

    Please verify that no printer paper is jammed or partially fed into the printer. If you have one or more pieces of paper stuck in the printer these will need to be manually removed before the printer will print again.

    Won't photocopy / warning light flashing /


    The paper feed system is worn (rollers, and separation pad). What is happening, is extra sheets are being fed into the machine primarily because the separation unit is not doing it's job properly. So rather than just one page at a time being fed, it is allowing an extra sheet to "creep" in intermittently, causing the jam. And the indicator you are seeing is the "jam" indicator.

    Paper Jam


    Some basic non-tech questions:
    • Are you using paper that's been allowed to sit open for weeks? It might have absorbed water.
    • Are you in the habit of reusing paper that's double-fed? I used to, but it's more likely to jam
    • When was the last time the technician was in to do a preventive maintenance? The machine may need a basic clean-and-check.
    • Check your manual, and check what the machine is telling you (on the display, if it has one). The location of the jam may give you an idea of the reason for the jam (jamming at the fuser may indicate a cold fuser, jamming at the drum can be caused by broken separation fingers, etc.) If you have a technician, this will be useful information.

    PAPER JAMS


    Does the fault clear when you open/close? If it does you probably don't have a jam.
    Does the machine begin to try to make copies, then stop-if so it has probably failed to feed off the tray, hence the jam message.If this is the case, pull out the paper tray, check for obstructions, clean feed rollers and try again.Are there "skid marks on the paper(indicating the rolls have turned?) If so rolls could be dirty/worn. If no skid marks, can you determine if the rolls did in fact turn? Go from there
