One of your jam sensors may be stuck in the actuated position by a paper scrap or dust, giving a jam code to your printer. There are usually two sensors, one where the paper feeds, and one where the paper exits. Try this: hand-feed a sheet of paper through the machines paper path,IN THE DIRECTION THE PAPER NORMALLY FEEDS. This may force out whatever is actuating the sensors.

Rollers could be worn out. Also could be a problem with the paper sensor. Not sure what type of sensor this printer uses. Some just use a pressure switch, others use a light sensor.

Check the gear on the left side of your printer where the disk encoder strip is attach,the gear is not holding the metal shaft your need to replace that gear. The problem is in the inner hole where the shafting is attached.

Paper feed issues when there is no Paper jam. All the rollers move when the printer tries to feed paper. It'll feed about and inch and a half of paper and then stop showing a Paper Jam.


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. If you plan to keep your printer,

Replace the pick-up and feed rollers.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

The roller on the feed tray keeps feeding through eventhough there is no paper there and the panel keeps saying there is a jam


If it doesn't do this with paper in the tray, it's a stuck paper present sensor flag.
If the machine thinks there's paper there, it tries to feed. Since paper doesn't make it to the timing sensor, it shows a jam.
Check for a stuck flag above where the leading edge of paper would be with the cassette inserted.

A sheet of paper keeps getting jammed - we remove it and try again but it keeps jamming. We have cleaned the rollers inside where the cartridge goes and it did not help


If the first sheet of paper is correctly feeded and it shows up after fusing unit and that happends every time, then probably you have damaged exit paper sensor. It have to be replaced with new one.
If the paper feeds only few santimetres then you have to replace paper feed roller

The feed rollers keep jamming and feeding in at an


phyical inspection of the rollers for a jam or a roller out of its socket would be my first look.
then inspect the plastic gears at the side of the rollers as these will crack and are hard to spot untill they break completely.
Always check your printer properties first and make sure it is set for the correct type of paper.
Unfortunately if has broken gears it will be less expensive to replace than repair.. Regards

Did you replace paper feeder with new one? Most paper feeder problem are rubber at paper pick up roller (bottom side) and small spring at bottom paper pick up roller. Check for "something" slip at paper feeder and lubrication at paper feeder mechanic.

Printer keeps saying paper jam..there is no paper jam


You can also try using a rubber eraser as the rollers are going. Just take a pencil and lightly rub along the length of the rollers as they are feeding. This should remove the film that clogs the rollers surface.

Printer malfunction


The samsung printer have three paper jam sensors. First (paper jam 0) after the feed rollers. Second (paper jam 1) at the left of the feed rollers and third (paper jam 2) at the fuser unit where it is hot. You can see the actuator between the two white rollers. Paper jam 2 is mainly cause by the scrappers out of position on the side of the upper heat rollers.You will have to clean it and put it back into position.

Doesn't Print - Says "Paper Jam"


That is the problem, machine will show printer jam if paper feed rollers fail to pick up paper when requested, your machine sounds like it needs new paper feed roller or you can clean the paper feed roller with a slightly! damp cloth.

If no jam light shows when power is turn on and machine comes to ready and then you send a job to printer and it then shows jam then it is the feed roller or sometimes the feed clutch

If on the other hand it always show jam then there is or a switch is stuck.
