Paper jams every time I try to print something

The paper is not fed through the printer. It gets about half way and jams. I have to pull it out in the back every time.

I appreciate your help.

2 possible solutions.
1 The paper itself. Check that the paper tray is not overfull. this can cause multiple sheets to feed through. Also make sure that you use good quality paper suitable for the particular type of printer. Always keep the paper dry Damp (not wet) paper will also cause the sort of problem you describe. another good reason for not keeping to much paper in the paper tray. Paper will keep better in the packet than in the tray. Always store the paper in the packet in a warm dry place. I keep mine near a radiator and away from the Air con.

2. The printer driver. Download the latest driver for your printer from the manufacturer and update the printer driver, via the control panel/printers. If you don't know how to do this you can simply uninstall the printer and then install it again using the new printer driver.

Good Luck

When printing documents no matter how few or how many pages, paper gets stuck in the middle of printing.


Try using regular paper on unit as specified by Samsung. If that does not resolve the issue then the hassle lies with the paper feed mechanism. Often a good cleaning of all the rollers in the path can take care of the issue.

Paper jam/no paper fed


make sure the photo paper is in glossy side face down,
set the paper type to photo.

If it keeps jamming it's because the paper feed is probably dirty and not taking the paper properly

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.

Check the FUSER, I think your exit sensor is bad.
If you open the rear door, look inside where the paper starts to come out of the printer, you should see a small lever that triggers the PAPER EXIT sensor. It might be hard to see. If it is not broken, you need a new FUSER.

Paper Jam Help Please


If your location is too humid, paper can stick together. If it's too dry, static electricity can also hold paper together.

Incorrect paper thickness / weight can also cause this.

It's a good idea to 'fan' the paper before inserting it, and make sure the paper thickness/weight & room humidity levels agree with those in the specs at the back of the printer manual.

Hp psc 1315 paper jam


Hi,



. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge inside the all-in-one printer to dissipate before putting your hands or any metal tools inside the chassis.

2.
Pin down the exact location of the jam. The 3 hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and print carriage or between the print carriage and output tray.

3.
Take off the front paper tray if the sheet jammed while still in the front area of the printer. If here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

4.
Pull the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a piece deeper inside the machine.

5.
Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed-tray area and print carriage. Carefully remove the jammed paper.

6.
Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside the printer. You may need to remove the print carriage to get to the jam.

7.
Replace all parts and return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

Pulled out paper & broke the printer


There is a part of the printer that looks like a roller (sorry I can't remember the name now) but you may know it. It rolls over the papers to pick one at a time and forward that to the printing segment. If you can reach it, try (gently) to adjust it into place (or normal position). It probably rotated half cycle or so when you forced the paper out. It needs to complete the cycle in order to tell that there is paper. I am using experience from laser printers so bear with me. But that's what usually causes such problems after **** occassions.

MP600 Paper Jam


I just had the same problem, tried everything and resigned myself to buying a new one. I was about to throw the thing when I saw the Card backing of an A4 Pad. I thought I have nothing to lose so forced this through the machine and Bingo. It cured it.

Paper will not feed


These are basically throw away printers. But you might try checking the paper path. There are small plastic "arms" that guide the paper as its picked up and goes throught he printer. Sometimes one of these may get stuck in a position that makes the printer think there is paper in the path somewhere.
