    What a pain My printer will print 2-3 pages and the paper jam lite comes on and there is no paper jam so I have to go through the motions and wait for it to kick back on and when it does I'm so feed up with it I want to throw it out the window. This is my second one I sent the first one I had originally bought back to factory for the same problem its and they sent this refurbished one which is not what I wanted but I guess that's what you get when you send them back ,someone else's junk I'll never own another one after I throw this one out the window and some days when it fills like working I can receive faxes .

I own a CP1215 which is barely a month old. It worked fine until yesterday. Suddenly, each time I attempt to print, it gets stuck as it comes out. I followed a tip I found online and close the back tray...

This might not be a solution, but rather something to get your job done if nothing else (if it works):

Try using the "manual feed" tray instead of the paper tray. Depending on where the jam is occurring in the machine, it could bypass that spot and print fine.

Best of luck!

Paper is not being picked - giving Jan message. I have changed paper to Lazer type whilst frequency has reduced there is still an issue. Machine is about 18 months old.

Can you hear the machine trying to pick up the paper?
Normaly its a paper feed roller that gets dirty.
But if the machine does not attempt to pick up the paper, the problem may be a paper sensor

Most of the issues I've had like this are resolved by installing or reinstalling the latest software drivers which are available here.
pick your operating system, download the appropriete driver to your desktop , install it, restart.. do a test page both in windows printer properties and in one of your document editting programs like word.
Post again here if that doesn't remedy things.

Printing Problem

Paper jam.
Even after I check out all areas.
Open and close all trays and neatly stack paper so on and so forth.
sometimes, print two pages then paper jam for no reason. Very long and tedious process to remove error message.

Thank You,

The Drum LED blinks if the drum unit is near the end of its life.

Replaced toner cartridge now doesn't work

If you pull out the paper tray you will see a rubber pick up roller. Clean that roller with a rag and some rubbing alcohol. It sounds as if the roller is slipping and not bringing the paper in fully. Good luck John
