Thanks for using FixYa. First, verify that there is actually no paper jam (open all the doors, take out the paper tray, take out the cartridges and visually inspect). Turn printer off and unplug the printer from all cables (power, USB, etc). Try to hold it upside down and gently shake it so that if there is any paper inside it's removed. If still it's not resolved then clean the print head. To clean the print head take a hot water towel with the printer unplugged and the cartridges out, clean it till the time you see there is no ink residue on the towel. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Red light is on

verify if the paper guides in the paper trays are set exactly to fit the paper edges, since the printer defines the paper size with these paper guides. then verifiy if the paper settings in the printer driver are set to the exact same paper size as the paper used in the paper tray.

Samsung ml-1640 giving red light, not taking papers

I had the same problem when a paper jammed and I have pulled it out. The red light came on and nothing worked. My solution was: I pulled out the tonner and put it back, opened all covers and closed it. All this apparently must be done with printed turned on (the same thing with printer turned off didn't work). Hope this helps.

My printer shows red light after 2100 print out

if there is no paper jam and you have paper in the paper tray, than it means that the toner cartridge is empty and need to be replaced
