Question about Samsung Printers & Copiers
I had this problem too. For me the answer turned out to be the paper sensor in the back part of the machine, behind the little back door just under the top part of the machine. This sensor hangs down from a thin rod that runs across the width of the machine, and is held in place by a small spring that encircles the same rod that supports the finger. The finger had apparently gotten moved so the spring was dislodged from its proper place. I was able to rotate it around the rod with my finger & get the spring moved back to where it should be. This seems to have cleared the problem--I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Unplug the unit and remove the paper tray. Flip it over. Be careful of the floppy paper catcher--don't let it break off as you're setting the printer down.
Look towards the back of the unit, and you'll see a dark grey to black rubber tread about 1.25" long, in the center of a shaft. This is the gripper that pulls the paper into the unit. It needs cleaning.
I used VHS tape head cleaner (amazing--I still have a VCR!) but you could use rubbing alcohol. Put a few drops on a Q-Tip and scrub away at all surfaces of the rubber piece. It won't move, rotate, etc. and don't try to make it do so. The swab will get dark. Use the other end of the swab to scrub the piece dry. Pick away any loose cotton.
Turn it back over, plug it in, and it'll probably work. Did for me after much frustration that I thought was due to bad paper or my paper getting weird from humidity. I didn't think it was a roller, because I had hardly ever used the printer, but that may have been the problem...

As Roipatrick said, for Paper Jam 1 the location of the Jam is In the fuser area or around the toner cartridge. I download the service manual from www.elektroda.pl/rtvforum/download.php?id=362035 and it suggested:
1. If the recording paper is jammed in front of or inside
the fuser. -> 1. Replace the SMPS.
2. If the recording paper is stuck in the discharge roller
and the fuser just after passing through the Actuator-
Feed, Feed Actuator may be defective. ->
2. Reassemble the Actuator-Feed and Spring-Actuator
if the returning is bad.
I found if I push the paper a little bit when it goes in, it can print, so I conclude neither is correct, it is pick-up sponge needs to be replaced. It will cost about $15 parts + shipping from http://www.partstore.com/Part/Samsung/Samsung/SCX4521F/Samsung/Samsung/JC7300211A/New.aspx
So I tight a rubber bend around the roller as showed in the picture and I am printing now. :-)
