Carefully remove the paper tray and the paper. The sheet(s) that are stuck can then be firmly but gently pulled backwards out of the feed input.

To avoid the problem check these 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

    We have a HP Laserjet 2600N. There is a jam in the fuser delivery section. Someone tried to clear the jam but left torn paper inside. How can I remove the jammed/torn paper? Is there a lever that will...


    I'm sorry to inform you I referenced the removal of the fuser as it's simple for most machines. However on the 2600 it's buried inside. If you can pull it out the machine will have to opened up to remove the paper. The process includes 18 steps to get it out.

    If you want the instuctions on how to remove I can upload them to scribd and provide you with a link. Other than that it would require a service call to a technician or your IT department.

    Paper jammed at exit rollers of Canon D860. Paper


    If you remove the plastic covers on that side of the printer, you will see a small screw holding a bar against the rollers. Set the printer on end so you can remove this screw with out dropping it into the printer, and then the rollers will be loose enough that you can get the paper out.

    Paper goes scew whiff when trying to print. Says there is a paper jam but none visible.


    Smaller torn bits of paper may still be in the printer. Unplug the power, open the back access panel. Look for torn or jammed paper. Also check the ADF (auto document feeder) for a jam.

    When you try it again, Dell recommends that you fan your paper. Fanning the paper helps break apart the bonds left by improperly cut paper which leaves the edges of the sheets interlocked.
