The most likely culprit is that the rollers that pull the paper are dirty. Use the steps below to clean the rollers.

If paper does not feed correctly, perform the following to clean the paper feed rollers:
1) Confirm that the printer is powered on.
2) Remove any paper from the printer.
3) Press and hold the <Resume/Cancel> button.
4) Release the <Resume/Cancel> button after the Power lamp blinks three times.

Note: The Power lamp will blink and the paper feed roller starts cleaning itself by revolving.
5) When the Power lamp lights in green, repeat Steps 3 and 4 up to two additional times. (Please wait approx. 30 seconds for paper feed roller cleaning to complete.)
6) To confirm whether cleaning has been performed properly, set a blank sheet of plain paper (8 1/2 x 11 Letter size) in the sheet feeder or cassette.
7) Press and hold the <Resume/Cancel> button and release it when the Power lamp blinks three times. (The paper set in the printer is picked up and fed.)
8) Repeat the process as necessary

    Good advice, but did not help. Mine feeds from the right side. Cleaning like this made no difference to my problem. This is a nearly new printer, disappointing.

PAPER JAM - HOW DO I REMOVE SHEET OF JAMMED PAPER


The 2600s have a door in the back that can be removed to gain access to any sheets that may have become jammed. The front panel opens in two stages, the second requiring a button press on the side to gain access. Using gentle pressure and left-to-right motions you can slowly pry the trapped page from the rollers (make sure the printer is off before you begin) Some amount of disassembly may be required if the page becomes torn, but refrain from using sharp objects to pry the paper free. If you are unable to find the jammed sheet, remove the paper drawer and check the feed rollers.

I am getting a "fax output error" message on my printer/fax/scanner. It seems to be asking for paper. However, I see only one place to put paper in.


I've been having this same problem for months now and have been unable to find a solution. At some point in the past it failed to print a fax transmission report, and now it keeps insisting periodically for me to load paper so it can print. However, paper is loaded but the fax mode seems unable to feed it. I've unplugged the printer for a week and then reconnected it, but the error reappears periodically.

Unable to initialized


"Unable to Init" indicates a mechanical error, unless you're able to find a stuck paper or parts of a stuck paper or similar, you'll have to send the unit to service to have it fixed.

Wont work at all just says unable to print 36


"Machine Error 36" and "Unable to Print" are error messages indicating something physically making it impossible for the machine to work. Hopefully, you could find a stuck paper or parts of stuck paper by opening the different covers (front, back, paper trays etc), the problem should then be solved by removing the paper and rebooting your machine.
However, if this does not work or you're unable to find the stuck paper, you will need to have service on this unit, to open up the machine.

Try forcing a sheet of paper or thin cardboard through the paper path in the direction the paper feeds. This may push out the jam so you can reach it.
