It sounds like the pickup rollers on the printer are wearing out and getting bad. When this happens, the printer has a tough time picking up the paper. The pickup rollers should be in the printer right on the front of it. Try taking out the rollers and cleaning them with rubbing alcohol. This will clean the surface and allow them to pick up the paper in the printer.

Hope this helps :)

Paper wont feed


Go to a office supply store and ask for some roller cleaning paper. It's sticky on both sides and thick. Run it thru the printer a couple of times. Should do it.

Several sheets entered the printer at the same time and stuck. can't pull them forward or backward.


Step 1 Clear any loose paper from the paper tray. This will help you locate the jam. You will find it either in front, near the paper tray, or in the rear.

Step 2 To clear a paper jam near the paper tray, grip the paper and pull it firmly but gently from the printer. If you find a stack of papers jammed, grab from the middle of the stack and pull.

Step 3 For a rear jam, remove the back of the printer. When you find a free edge on the paper, grip it firmly and pull it out.

Step 4 Replace the back cover. Press the "Resume" button or turn off the printer, and then turn it back on. Your settings should reset.

Step 5 Try printing another document

Paper now jams all the time in Samsung ML-2851. I have tried all the remedies in the manual but paper still pulls to one side and jams in paper tray or single sheet feeder. What part do I need to fix or...


Before loading the paper, you need to hold the stack of paper, and then tap it to make the stack even on all sides. Ensure that the paper adjusters on the tray are positioned in a right manner. Push the stack of paper into the tray until it stops. Never try to force the paper too far in the tray.

Printer tried to take half of the stack of paper and jammed up. Can't get the paper unstuck.


Unlatch and pull out the paper tray. Try pulling out the sheets in the middle of the "half stack" first. You should have less friction there. While you have the paper tray out, examine the rectangular cork paper separator strip on the right-hand side of the back corner. If it's worn or missing, that would explain how the jam got started.

SOMETIMES FEEDS UP TWO OR MORE SHEETS WHEN IT SHOULD ONLY BE ONE


many printers have a rubber or cork pad under the feed wheels to hold back all the sheets, except the top one. This one doesn't have that, so we'll try a couple other things.

Pull the tray out and remove all the paper. If you're reusing old paper, that might be your problem. Assuming you have fresh, clean paper, take the whole stack, pinching it at one end, and bow the stack up in the middle. Now pinch the other end of the stack, relax the grip on the end you pinched before, and bend the stack the other way. Repeat.

With every bend, the stack gets more slanted. Now hold one end of the stack and fan the other end to get air between all the sheets. Fan the other end the same way. The tiny layer of air you're creating between pages goes a long way in lubricating them, so they feed separately.

Straighten the stack and put it back in the cassette. The blue "fences" at the sides should be touching both sides of the stack to provide a little friction and keep the feed straight. The back fence should hold the stack against the opposite end of the tray. (Your tray is slanted at the feed end. On models where that wall is vertical, you should have a 1 to 2 mm gap so the paper doesn't bind when it tries to lift.)

Reinsert the tray and try it out.

    Paper feed grabs more than one sheet


    Try fanning your paper several times. Take that nice neat pile of paper in your hands and wiggle it so that your thumb fans through the edge of the whole stack. Do this on both edges so that the stack of paper is slightly less perfect. You can also gently fold the whole stack slightly in both directions. Do this every time you add fresh paper. It should only take a few seconds.
