If it is getting crumpled in the tray, there is something blocking the paper path.
What I would suggest is taking out the toner and drum cartridge, then remove the paper tray. Tip the machine on it's back and look into the paper feed area for something blocking the paper path.
When it is crumpling the paper like that, the feeder is working fine, just something blocking the paper path.
You can take a minela folder, and gently push it through the paper path to dislodge the obstruction.

    When the paper jams, where on the front edge of the paper is there damage? Is there an area in the middle or on the side that looks like an area where the paper is making contact with something?

    There has to be paper drive for it to be crumpling.

Hp p4015n keeps jamming


Jamming where? Is paper crumpled up in printer or does printer just stop. Likely the rollers in tray 2 are worn. Try printing from the MP tray, if that works then printer is ok and it will be the feed/sep rollers in tray 2. It is also very important on this model to ensure that you have current firmware installed as older versions of firmware have a bug that will wreck the fuser.

Paper jam at exit


Have you set the tray to thick cardstock in the printer?
If not try that. This will let thicker paper go through more easily.
Make sure you bot have the tray as the printjob set up as the same type of paper.
How much does the paper weigh?
Also try printing from the manual feed. You're paper path is shorter that way and easier for the printer to handle.
Does it only jam on this type of paper?
Might be a fuser easy but don't think that's the case with this one.

Paper jam


Here is some tips to avoid paper jam..

  • If your printer has a paper tray do not fill the tray to capacity. If you're encountering frequent paper jams, reduce the amount of paper you place in the tray each time it is filled.
  • Make sure you or the tray feeding the paper into the printer is aligned properly and the slider used to hold the paper in place in the tray is snug with the paper. Many printers have sliders that allow different types and sizes of paper to be fed into the printer. If the slider is not properly positioned it can cause paper jams.
  • Use standard office paper; folded paper, paper with labels, and specialty paper such as hard bound paper can often cause paper jams. If you're uncertain with what paper you should use with your printer your printer documentation will list the paper compatible with your printer.
  • Do not mix the paper you're feeding into the printer at one time. If you need to change the paper or size of paper being used removed any other paper currently in the printer before inserting the new paper.
  • If your printer uses a slot or tray for the paper make sure to not push the paper too far into the slot or tray.
  • Examine the printer for any previous stuck paper in the printer. Previous paper jams, torn paper, printing labels or other foreign objects in the printer can cause reoccurring printer jams.

Welll its not a canon but ew are in dire need. Our 16 month old OKI b4600 wont print.Error message says clear paper jam. cant find a jam swapped tray, cartridge/drum etc. No luck. Any suggested


Hi There and Welcome to Fixya,

Usually, paper jams can occur at the input location right at the bottom of the printer - always remember that even a tiny piece of paper can cause halt in printing, hence, the error message.

Here's what I'm suggesting for you to do :
  • Start with pulling out the tray from the printer and look for ANY crumpled/pieces/fragments of paper that could be tucked in.
  • At the bottom of the printer is the feed area - do the same thing and remove any pieces of paper.
  • Ensure that it's absolutely "paper fragment free" before returning the tray back at the printer.
  • Next, is to open the top cover and carefully remove the drum.
  • Remove any pieces or fragments of paper that you find.
  • Carefully slide back the drum, ensure that everything snaps into place.
  • Close the top cover.
  • Restart your printer.
I most certainly hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Keeps telling me to clear paper jam but I dont see one


look on the back to see if there is a removable plate that will expose the rollers. On my HPs I have to clear a paper jam when ever the paper in the tray absorbs too much moisture. A sheet gets crumpled in the rollers where you cannot see it and the back plate allows me to pull the crumpled sheet clear. That is also where the paper sensor is located.

Printing pictures photo paper gets jammed half way?


There are many reasons why your photo paper gets jammed, but here the most common ones:

- The photo paper is crumpled, or the edges are fold. Be sure that the paper is completely straightened out before putting it in the feeder.
- Your tray lock is larger than your paper. It is recommended that you keep your tray holder lock the size of your paper. The best way is still to keep a .5cm allowance.
- There is something blocking the feeder which causes the paper to go out of track. Are you sure there isn't a crumpled paper or torn paper left with the feeder?

HTH!

It crumples the paper up as well


This can be caused from one or more of the following:
1) Paper can go bad if not stored flat or for too long a time,
2) Could be a prior jam not cleared completely
3) Residue on roller(s) or damaged roller(s)
4) misaligned paper tray
5) Broken/Damaged component(s)

The rollers may be worn so it is not getting picked up evenly. Also, be sure that your paper tray in aligned properlyand guides are keeping the paper straight. If both of these seems to be good then there may be something in the paper path.

Crumpled paper comes out of copy machine


Firstly make sure that in the cassette the paper tray guides are fully against the paper as if they are not the paper will wiggle through the machine and cause your fault. If this doesn't work then check the paper path as there maybe a small piece of paper causing it to shift and turn causing the crumple. Also check the fuser and the little plastic stripper fins as they may have dried toner on them causing the fault.

Hope this helps you
Thanks J
