According to page S-1 of the Specifications chapter of the Users Manual, the maximum paper weight that the MFC-3240C can tolerate is 80 g/m². This section of Wikipedia's article on Paper says that anything over 160 g/m² ranks as card stock, which includes your 180 g/m² matte paper. Card stock has choked just about every inkjet printer into which I've seen it fed, but even if that was not so, you are still using paper that is more than twice the "legal limit."

Epson r350 printer does not print thick paper or inkjet paper


Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.

It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.

For this paper Select this paper type setting Plain paper, sheets Epson Premium Ink Jet Plain Paper Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper plain papers Epson Ultra Glossy Photo Paper Epson Ultra Glossy Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper Epson Premium Glossy Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper Epson Premium Semigloss Epson Glossy Photo Paper Epson Glossy Epson Matte Paper - Heavyweight Epson Double-Sided Matte Paper Epson Matte Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Cards Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Epson Photo Stickers Epson Photo Stickers Envelopes Envelope
Hope this is of help.

Regards
Sham

No paper fed


Brother printers dislike photo gloss paper, even if it is only 110gsm, they just don't seem to be able to feed it around the rollers. I suggest using a Matte paper, but no more than 140gsm

Paper jam on my brother mfc 8440


It is possible that a small piece of paper is stuck in the paper path above the primary feed roller. It will most likely need to be disassembled.
