Please try this:Paper Jams in the Printer ID:412





Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.

If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
Turn the printer off.
Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

I have a Brother MFC 420cn and it keep saying paper jam and there is no paper jam help please


->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.

->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.

->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.

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

->Try printing another document

Not working see bottom


Check your entire feed to make sure there is NO paper jams. Sometimes even the smallest little piece of paper can get jammed up and can e hard to see.
You can also check your manual for diagnostic mode and alignment print page.

PRINTER DID NOT TAKING PAPER AFTER PRINT OPTION AND PRINTER STOPS AFTER 2INCHES PAPER


hi
I guess its a coz of paper jam in your printer.
Heavy cardstock and certain types of slick or coated paper can cause frequent paper jams. To better isolate the cause of your problem (machine or paper), try a new **** of regular 20 lb copy or laser paper.

  • Don't Overload
    Overloading your paper tray can cause paper jams. Your manual may say that your input tray can hold 250 sheets -- but if you keep getting jams, try loading 225 sheets instead.
  • Check the Paper
    Check the minimum/maximum paper weights that your printer can handle. Paper that is too thick, or too thin, can cause jams.
  • If you still get paper jams after this may be its time to clear the internal of the machine..You might want to have a look at the following link..

Paper jam - cleared, but still says there's a jam


hi katherine. unplug the printer, wait three minutes and plug it back in. sometimes this will reset everything. if it doesnt, keep looking for a scrap of paper stuck in it somewhere either where it goes in or where it comes out. good luck.

PAPER JAM


Paper jams are sensed via 'flags' that protrude from slots in the paper path or optical means that check for reflection of some light source to a receiver and, time.

If paper passed a specific check point but fails to reach a second one within a time 'window,' there is a 'paper jam' regardless of whether there is or not.

A flag that has been pushed through the slot and can not rise again or a blocked LED or its companion photocell/transistor, can give a permanent 'paper jam' in error.

If you have ever printed any labels with the unit, you could have some fouling from them that has caused the problem.
It's probably not an electronic problem since the mechanical side is the real weak point.

Gaining access to all parts of the paper path to check for sensor condition could be difficult.
