I know a jam should be easy to find on such a small and simple deskltop copier but having no success
every time i hit the copy button the slide top will slide all the way to the left and then stop shortly after it reverses itself and starts heading right. The jam light comes on and of course i have to open it up to reset so i can activate copy again. I do nothing to clean any jam as i just dont see any issue but the jam light goes out when i open it and close it back up
I have started a copy with the slide top all the way to the right, all the way to the left and from the middle and it stops thinking perhaps it had to cycle thru and it jams and stops at the same place every time--just dont see any paper stuck up in there
anythoughts since i just dont see any paper caught up in there

The sensor acturator that the paper hits might be broken or out of place so the copier thinks there is paper there when there is not or there might be a small piece of paper that stuck in there holding the sensor acturator up.
ok have dealt with this a ton at my old job and found that if you take out all trays toner packs anything that is made to be removed then do a quick check for any paper jams or even small bits of paper that may be stuck and remove it all then put everything back together it usually fixes the issue. If that does not work then a reset of the machine may be in order simple turn power off and back on. you can hold the power button in til it shuts off or simple unplug it leave it off for about 15 seconds then turn on and check again if that doesnt help i dont know .
Either you have a problem with the fuser itself, such as a drive gear problem where the fuser is not turning or the is toner buildup on the fuser entrance plate. The toner buildup is a common problem so I would check that first. The fuser is easy to remove and you just beed to flip it over and look closely at the plates that "guide" the paper into the fuser rollers. Look for any small globs of melted toner that the paper is hitting when it tries to enter the fuser. If you let it cool down first then the toner can usually be chipped away and scraped clean. Then just reinstall.
Exactly where in the machine does the paper jam??If it jams when you hit the print button, try cleaning the paper feed tires with WD40.spray it on a clean cloth, clean the feed and pickup tires thoroughly and make sure to get ALL of the WD40 off the tires before using the machine.If you take the paper cassette out and look with a flashight you should be able to identify the paper feed tires.
Make sure both devices are connected to the same network, the printer is on, and the desktop can successfully print to it.
On the desktop, go into your Printers and Faxes section from the Start Menu or Control Panel. Right-click on your printer and select Sharing. It may ask you if you want to learn more but you can hit "Just enable sharing" and then hit the radio button to "Share this printer." You can pick a name for the printer if you wish, or just hit OK.
On the laptop you'll need to connect to the desktop through Windows Networking. If you know the name of the computer you can just type "\\COMPUTERNAME" without quotes and put the computer's name after the two back-slashes. If you don't know the name you can go through the Networking and Sharing center to view your network.
Once you are connected to your desktop you should see any folders or printers that have been shared. If your printer is the only thing you have shared then that's the only entry you should see. If you double click on the printer it should ask you if you want to connect to the printer, which should take some time. Once you see the Printer queue window pop up you have successfully connected to your router!
At this point the network printer will have been added to your laptop's list of available printers. When you go to print something just hit the drop-down box to select the printer connected to your desktop computer, and Windows will take care of the rest. Happy printing!
