THe first thing to do would be to clean the pick up roller/s. If you can not reach them by hand, use a sheet of fine sand paper. put the sand paper in the paper tray so the gritty side will contact the feed roller. Then hold the paper in place while exicuting a test print. You wil get a jam, or papaer empty indicator. now do it again, and then one more time. Now remove the sand paper and use a damp thin cloth. make sure this is secured and will not be pulled into the machine. Now one more time run a test page. Now you should be good to go. If this did not solve the feed problem your feed rollers need to be replaced, or you have a paper present sensor problem. This could take some disassembly so let's try the easy stuff first.

My Brother MFC 210C Printer, Copier, Scanner isn't feeding the paper.How do I fix this?


Use a water dampened cloth to clean the pickup roller. They get residue on them over time that causes them to not grip the surface of the paper when feeding.

I have a Brother MFC 420cn and it keep saying paper jam and there is no paper jam help please


->Clear any loose paper from the paper tray. This will help you locate the jam. You will find it either in front, near the paper tray, or in the rear.

->To clear a paper jam near the paper tray, grip the paper and pull it firmly but gently from the printer. If you find a stack of papers jammed, grab from the middle of the stack and pull.

->For a rear jam, remove the back of the printer. When you find a free edge on the paper, grip it firmly and pull it out.

->Replace the back cover. Press the "Resume" button or turn off the printer, and then turn it back on. Your settings should reset.

->Try printing another document

When I try to print it starts a sheet of paper then lets go of it before it prints then says paper jammed when it has failed to load a piece. I have a pixma mx310


Clean the pick-up mechanism and feed wheels with isopropil alcohol and a Q tip. These items are probably slick and not gripping the paper.

Wont grip paper on feed, keeps 'saying' paperjam


I have had this problem after printing a large batch of sheets on a heavy matte photo paper. The roller picks up a 'polish' from the surface coating and then fails to grip. I have tried cleaning the roller, with some sucess, but the best solution I have found is to feed through several blank sheets (just page throws in a Word document) of a ordinary 80 gram paper. Doing this between smaller batches of the photo printing seems to keep things flowing.

Paper feeds crooked into the printer


Check the adjustments for the paper your using. Open the printer and look on the rollers you'll probably find paper or an obstruction clear it and also clean then rubber moving parts with isopropyl alcohol to give them their grip back.

Paper pulls to the right, jams, won't print, tried different paper still won't print


Hi,
Sounds like the feed rollers need cleaning.
Clean the feed rollers, lint free cloth,bottled water.
wait for them to properly dry

Revolve the feed roller bar as you clean them, to clean the feed rollers all the way round, remove all particles from them.

Check you ADF grips are set correctly, if not you will get mis-fed sheets. check the tray is sat properly too or mis-feeds.

Check paper size is correct in print properties too.
Should be good then
Try print.

Regards
Richard.

Printer says clear paper jam. There is no paper jam.


Normal 0 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 over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Printer will not feed paper


Mine did that too.
I found that propping the paper feed cassette up at the end away from the printer worked.
