Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Which model printer.
Some printers have levers to disengage the traction to enable gently removing the jammed paper.
If you cannot remove it easily and it happens to rip try a trick I learned at a printing company: Re-construct the paper like a puzzle and dont stop looking for small pieces of ripped paper untill the puzzle is complete.

Opened up the back and found there is a plastic cog wheel on the end of an orange drum, which must be the Fuser Unit, which was damaged. So the paper was getting as far as the drum but the rollers to pull it through the Fuser Unit were not going round. A new Fuser Unit seems to be about £99 plus VAT and I don't supose a new printer is much more than that. So if anyone has a spare Fuser Unit for a Brother HL 5140 which is still in good working order I would be happy to consider buying it. Alternatively I have 2 x spare drums DR3000 and 1 x toner TN3060 for sale !!

PAPER JAMMED INSIDE THE MFC
1. Remove the Jam Clear Cover located in the back of the machine..
Squeeze the plastic tabs located on the right and left side of the cover
and pull the cover off.
2. Remove any paper you can see jammed in the machine. If you cannot
remove the jammed paper from the back of the unit follow the in
structions listed below for reinserting the cover and then continue to Step 4.
3. Re-insert the Jam Clear Cover. The top of the cover has a slotted
opening in the center approximately 1/4 inch wide. Hold the cover by the
plastic tabs located in the front of the cover on the right and left side and insert the cover into the opening until it securely
clicks intoplace (both sides).
4. Open the scanner cover by pulling up on the lower right corner of the
cover until it locks into place.
5. Remove the jammed paper. If the paper is jammed underneath the print
head, unplug the machine from the AC power outlet. Gently move the
printhead to the far right side of the machine (the "home" position) and
then remove the jammed paper.
6. Lift the scanner cover to release the lock and then gently push the
scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover.
To test print the Help List by pressing Menu/Set, 6 (Print Reports), 1
(Help List) and then Black Start. The Help list should begin printing.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
