SOURCE: Paper Jam error

Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry.
Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print.
Also make sure thatyou have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job.
Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..

Hope that helps!

Paper jams in first rollers out of paper tray one sheet will feed but several will jam


Check for wear on the first set of rollers. If they seem fine and your print settings are correct (media type and size) then you may need to replace a small part in the paper tray. When I have seen this issue previously I needed to replace a seperation pad that lifts paper up(spring loaded to raise the paper the right amount as the paper level goes down) and has a rubber pad on top, when the rubber pad gets worn and it no longer 'holds' the bottom sheets that are not supposed to feed.You can get these from brother directly or from service centers/retailers. The part you need is the paper feeding kit, part no. LM6291001 and it looks like this!

I don't know what printer you have, but this applies to all printers. The first paragraph is just for inkjets. The the whole is related to laser printers.


85% of paper jams are caused by worn rollers. The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease.


Metal Tab Separation- Pull out your paper tray and examine either end where the paper sits in. If any of the corners are held down by metal tabs, this is your paper feed system. Chances are, you only have one rubber roller or one set of rollers arranged along side of each other. Reach in where the tray goes and feel up. You should feel some rollers. They might be completely round, or they might be shaped like a half moon. Clean whichever part of them you can with the solution, and this should stop your paper jams. It might be necessary to turn them, but don't force them if they don't move freely.

Pickup Roller and Separation Pad-

If your printer uses this paper feed system, you should see a small piece of flat or slightly curved rubber or cork. It would be towards the end of the paper tray, or deep inside the paper loading cavity on top loaders. This 'separation pad' rubs against the paper feed roller, so if you find the pad, you've found the roller. Clean it and your jams should stop.


Three Roller Paper Separation System- Pull your paper tray out, and look for a roller on either end of it. If you find one, clean it. Then look inside the printer where that roller would rest with the paper tray inserted. You'll find another paper roller there. Clean this one also. Finally, look further back or closer to the front of your printer (depending on which way your paper feeds) to find another roller or set of rollers. Clean all of these, and your paper jams will go away

Also:

Start a print from tray 1/manual feed and just as the trailing edge of paper is entering the machine; quickly open it to stop print and take out the cartridge and look at the drum and the paper underneath. If the issue is there at that point then it would point to the cartridge. If not then it is in the fuser area.

Paper jam in Panasonic KX-


Your document feed is separate from your received and report prints so that's why your reports are printing ok and the document feeder jams. When you open up the doc feeder and look inside the machine you will see a roller and above it on the cover that opens you will see a rubber pad. Clean both the roller and pad (in fact anything in there that is rubber) with a rubber cleaner, alcohol, or even soap and water on a cloth without it been dripping wet. You will probablt find that they are very dirty. The roller feeds the document in so that needs to be clean and the pad helps to keep all the other docs from feeding in at the same time and that should be very clean so it produces good friction.

Paper feed


When the paper is in the feed section there is a rubber pad on the underside and a rubber roller on the other. Try cleaning the rubber pad with a cytrus cleaner or just water, on a rag. Do not hesitate to "rough it up" a bit. Only helps the cause.
NOTE: if your machine has a "cork" pad rather than "rubber". Do not clean with a solution and only rough it up slightly.
Also check that your machine does not have a paper/envelope selector (often found in the paper exit area). If so ensure it is set for paper.

Paper Feed Problem


This is caused by the solenoid that is activated when picking up the paper. The solenoid is activated and the device goes through the motions of picking up the paper. It fails to pick up the paper or fully feed it past the leading edge sensor resulting in a jam error. You should replace the pick up solenoid assy and also the pick up roller and friction pads.
