I get message to pull out jammed paper but I cannot find end of the paper to pull out

Try blowing the printer out with a can of compressed air. Tiny bits of paper will often get stuck in the "eye" of the optical reader that tells the printer that it has a jam. Compressed air can blow this debris loose.

Another thing to double-check is the paper tray. Remove the paper tray and inspect the place where the paper gets pulled into the printer. Sometimes you will find a sheet of paper stuck there that isn't readily apparent anywhere else.

Hello, I have a Brother Fax 560 (Plain Paper Fax). I am having difficulty receiving faxes. It is not transmitting on the receiving end. What is the problem?

Hi Despite the increase in texting, email, Facebook and Twitter, we still hang on to our fax machines. They are perfect for sending copies of original documents despite document jams, buying ink or special paper, maintaining a phone line--we love 'em. Basic problems like paper misfeeds can be troubleshooted through the use of some basic steps.
Check the Message
  • Check the messages on the display of your Brother fax machinemag-glass_10x10.gif. The messages will be pretty self-explanatory such as "Insert Doc, Again" or "Please Supply Paper." "Insert Doc. Again" means that that the documents weren't placed on the feeder correctly; just follow the instructions and try again. A message like "Please Supply Paper" will simply mean you need to replenish the paper. "Memory Overflow" is probably the most cryptic. It just means that the memory capacity was exceeded and it has stopped recording. Press "Enter" to register the documents in memory and to complete the operation.
  • Misfeeds
  • Clearing an original's misfeed by pushing down on the release lever to open the front panel. Remove the failed original and close the panel. To clear recording paper that's gotten jammed in the paperfeed, open the turn guide and remove the paper. To clear paper from the transport unit, which is in the top, open the cover, remove the drum and toner. Lift the guide and remove the paper by pulling upwards. Paper can get stuck in what is called the Fixing Unit. Open the top cover. Again, remove the drum and toner. Open the Fixing Unit cover and remove the paper by pulling it back.

    Paper jam on printer

    Apparently, you pulled out the paper with the printer on; that's wrong if so. Then it is likely you pulled it out jammed paper from the wrong side, (always pull out jammed paper in the reverse/backward direction of the paper movement). This is enough to unsettle your printer. What you should do now is shut down your computer, turn off printer. Then open all the "covers"of the printer, (top and at the back, if applicable) and close all again firmly. Turn on PC and try to print again.

    Epson Stylus Pro 7600 - Oversize Printing

    Select the proper page size in the page setup dialogue box and again in the various print dialogue box sub menus. Also make sure your printer is selected and you are using the correct drivers.

    If all of these things are in place you should get a long list of paper types in the pull down menu when you attempt to print.

    Paper goes in squint drags to one side and jams

    In my experience the usual reason for this is something (obstruction) in the paper feed. Make sure you have a really good look right down inside the paper path as quite small objects will stop a correct feed. The fact that it is one side makes me thing something is in there. I have serviced printers before with coins, paperclips etc that have found a way in.

    Paper Pulled in Squint

    I had a similar problem; paper would go sideways when it was trying to pull it through. I looked into the paper slot with a mirror and found a mini-blind clip had fallen into the printer. I tipped the printer over and shook it out and it worked fine.

    Paper jam

    Can you tell me if the paper goes through squint?. if you turn the printer upside down and give it a gentle shake and see if anything comes out, i have removed pens, toast, and loads of other things that sometimes gets stuck inside. also have a look and see if you can find any jammed paper even if its only a tiny bit, this fixes 80% of the printers that comes into us. hope it works John
