Jams coming out of cassette at U-Turn, Black Guide has spring on it
Every 3 or 4th print, the paper will hang in the black paper guide, and stop and wrinkle the left edge of the paper........Checked for nicks, nothing there. Should I try to adjust spring tension? Thanks in advance......

Re: Jams coming out of cassette at U-Turn, Black Guide...
Remove the tray and then remove the screw shown in the picture.
Remove the peice as shown in the photo below to reveal the feed wheel beneath.
Open the top cover and remove the screw just to the left of the white/cleJams coming out of cassette at U-Turn, Black Guide - 72096c7.jpgshown in the photo below.
The smoked plastic peice will unclip from the fron end by grasping the iJams coming out of cassette at U-Turn, Black Guide - 23e5401.jpgdge and gently rocking up and inward. This will reveal the entire feed wheel.
Clean the entire wheel in the above photo with a damp (Not soaking, just damp) cloth. The wheel will turn making a clicking sound (top inward) allowing you to clean it entirely. Also clean the obligue roller (1st part removed) with a damp cloth and blowing out.
Reassemble as you just took it apart. Pay close attention to the smoked plastic peice that it gets front clipped properly back into place. Don't force it. It will all go back together relatively easy.
That should help eliminate a lot of your jamming issues.

Is that true for both print and copy job ?
Where does the jam happen ?
I am thinking if it is at the paper pickup roller area just as the job starts to print and not midway while printing, check the paper quality; dirty pickup roller; clean cork pad and try job from another tray
Here is his first answer: when you're facing the front of the machine, it's the left cover that
you need to remove to see the solenoid. there's 2 screws holding the
cover, one at the front behind the front door and one at the back behind
the rear door. then remove the paper cassette and ply the cover off
both at the front and rear, downward to remove.
once the cover is
off, look at the front end and you should see a larger black gear with a
spring attached to it at a 45 deg angle. right behind the spring is the
solenoid of interest. if you do a print, the solenoid should be
triggered once and the black gear should only rotate once. if it rotate
more than once, the solenoid arm is sticking to the sponge pad. use a
small blade or flat head screwdriver to remove the pad from the solenoid
and hopefully your problem should be solve.
Hello, so, first, did you clean the vertical path roller? ( its a axis with two rollers beneath the paper registration sensor ) Second, when you open left cover, and paper guide plastic cover ( black ) there is also sensor flapper, that can be a quite of pain because slow reaction of spring on it. Apply wd40 on its spring and in left corner where he lays into bushing. To check flapper response, manually close the paper guide plastic, the sensor must be in middle position. Also it can be the problem in paper pick up clutch and it needs to be cleaned or replaced. But, also the problem can be separation claws in cassette ( metal claws that holds the paper ). From experience, the probably is sensor flapper or pick up clutch the problem.
Hope that helps!

Is the jam Physical? (Damaged lead edge where it may have caught some thing)
Is the jam Timing (paper if perfect, it just stopped.)
If it is Physical then you need to look for the obstruction, paper clip, staple, or small piece of paper. Check very carefully, remove any foreign matter and retry.
If it is a timing jam, the start by removing the paper, check inside the the paper feed area for foreign material, fan the paper and carefully reinstall it, making sure it is the right size paper for the paper cassette. if it has movable guides in the tray, be sure they are firmly against the paper on all sides.

Hi there it may just be that the paper tray springs are not pushing the paper higher enough not making contact with the paper detect sensor arm. Or the sensor arm is broken and will need replacing. Check the tray springs also check the sensor arm you will see it if you remove the cassette and look inside there will be a black plastic lever hanging down when you put paper in this lever should go up as the paper acts as a barrier thus telling the machine that there is paper in it.
