Question about NEC SuperScript 860 Laser Printer
When I print a page the paper gets stuck when the paper is about half way out of the printer. If I pull on the paper it comes out and the page is properly printed. If the document is more than one page long and I pull on each page as it gets stuck all the pages are properly printed. However, if I do not manually pull the sheets as they come out the next page gets stuck. This is an old printer and probably not worth the cost of a professional repair but I would like to have it working properly again. Is there a fix for a ten thumbed dunce can attempt?
This is more of a workaround than a fix: I open up the front door and use the Face-Down Tray to collect all my printouts.

Tips for a great answer:
inspect the paper trays to make sure they are
not overloaded. To determine if this is the problem, do a test print with only
one piece of paper loaded in the paper tray. (If this turns out to be the
problem, keep the paper tray half-full in the future.)
Check that the type of paper being used falls
within the printer manufacturer's recommendations. For example, paper designed
for ink-jet printers doesn't necessarily work well in laser printers.
High-quality, bonded paper will cause paper jams in some printers
If someone has recently printed labels on this
printer, check to see if a label has come unglued from a sheet and become stuck
inside the printer.
Check the gears and rollers for stuck shreds of torn paper from previous jams. Turn off the printer before you attempt to remove the bits of paper
you can also you a light blower or vaccum to clean the printer be sure to remove the ink catridge from the printer before using them
after doing so click the printer icon in the task bar and click open it and delete all the files in them
then click start settings click printer and faxes then make your printer default then switch of the printer and the computer remove the power plug and the usb cable wait for few minutes and replug them then restart your computer and the printer then click start setting printer and right click the printer and click properties in the printer properties click the print a test page and your printer will be ready to print
