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. 
Good Luck.

SOURCE: Brother Laser Printer, paper gets stuck and printing wipes off.

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 !!

SOURCE: Brother printer, paper inside, but I do not see paper inside.

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.
Thanks, Joe

Paper is stuck/jammed on the drum and I am having difficulty removing the d rum unit and toner


Hi lbestu,

Please Read Tip Carefully :-

Tip: To manually remove paper pull on the paper with both hands being careful not to tear the paper while pulling it. If you're unable to get to an edge of the paper that allows you to pull it you may need to manually rotate the gears that feed the paper through the printer.

1.Turn off the printer.
2.Inspect the location or tray the printed paper ejects to. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.
3.Remove all paper trays and any paper that may be stuck between the tray and the printer. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.
4.Open the printer door that allows you access to the printer ink cartridges or toner and look for any stuck paper. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it
5.Turn the printer back on. If you continue to receive a printer jam error try repeating the above steps again. If issue still persist and you see no paper that is stuck in the printer it's likely your printer is experiencing another hardware issues and we suggest contacting the printer manufacturer for additional assistance or repair

Hope It's resolve all Your HP Printer Problem,

Have you tried shutting it down completely? Also, double check to see if the inside of the printer is completely clean. I had the paper jam indicator showing because there a small piece of paper stuck inside. Also, found a helpful manual for a similar printer, you can see it here - Brother HL-2240 manual

Brother 7340 wont print on envelope just keeps getting stuck, tried opennig the back like the book says but still gets stuck


Are you trying to print from the main paper tray with the envelope or from the auxiliary single page feeder? The auxiliary insert should be directly under the "Brother" logo on the front of the printer. Insert the envelope there. If it's a standard light weight envelope and it gets stuck still then I'd suggest there is a paper jam somewhere or possibly the fuser is going bad.

for this model, normally the paper is stuck behind., you can open the rear part of the printer and check if there is any paper stuck there.
lift up the scanner unit and switch on the printer, does the sound come from the print head side, it could be due to the print head getting stuck... the encoder belt might be damaged...

Brother MFC-235C will not clear paper feed fault


Most common cause of this in any printer is a tiny fragment of paper stuck in the sensor somewhere.

If you have powered off and back on without clearing the fault, then look hard (with a torch/flashlight) for small fragments of paper stuck in the mechanism.
