Hello,can you tell me why my printer (above) will not accept 180gms matt paper,it starts then in the lcd it says,paper jam,it comes out easyly i have checked for something stopping it but there is nothing,i've tried putting a few sheets in and also putting the maximum.
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."

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.

Envelope Hope this is of help.
I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy
paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print
button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it
will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I
have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this
way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps.Bud
