    With every copy or print job the paper starts to feed and then jams. Display panel says to open door. When I open and close the door, the print resumes and works fine but I waste a sheet of paper with every job. (The side paper guides seem a little tight and will not open wider.)

    I have the same problem for my FujiFilm Pictrography 4100 printer. I got an error message when I boot up my printer. It says paper jam. I check inside and there is no paper jam. I open the door and close it.... the error message is still there.

I seem to have fixed the problem on my Samsung SCX-4521F. The paper was feeding about 1 third through and stopping. I figured it was the large soft black paper roller which can be viewed at the back of the paper tray, loosing its grip.
So I initiated a copy function and turned the machine off half way through the soft black paper roller doing its 1 revolution.
This allowed me to access the back of the roller where I slipped a SLENDER toothpick under the rubber making sure the ends were trimmed.
This gives the rubber some extra grip and it is working for me... so far.

When i have no papper in the printer it keeps saying that it is jammed but i checked evrything and there is no papper

This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.
