Question about OKI C5100n Laser Printer
Had a paper jam but had the paper removed by pulling it out but still it wont print
I just completely took apart my front feeder unit because I just didn't believe there was a paper stuck in there. Sure enough, when I got to the bottom (an hour later) there it was- and it wasn't from the paper that was jammed. It must have been floating around in there waiting to get in just the right place to block the little sensor wiggly thing.
After I got it out, I realized there was a MUCH easier solution--- get some heavy paper (I used cardboard folded in half) and manually feed it through the paper feeder in the front assembly by hand. You can see where it should go in (it's where the paper from Tray 1 goes in) and out (it lines up with the belt in the main body of the printer) and there is a large gear on the side you can turn to help you get it through (just turn the gears until you feel the one that grabs your heavy paper.)
As it comes out, it should have your stuck paper with it.
