Paper jam The paper keeps jamming on the upper part rollers. Someone told me it might be caused by the heat damaging the components. I wonder if anyone has experienced this problem or if they have any thaughts on a solution.

If it is a jam 2 in the fuser area you should replace at lest the heat roll, if not, just replace the fuser assembly.
Typically what happens after about 25,000 pages is that the teflon coating wears on the heat roller. The toner then builds up on the roller and the paper tends to stick to the roller.
If you notice reprinting on the copies, prints or faxes, then you know that the heat roller is worn out.

Try cleaning all rubber rollers with a rag and some rubbing alcohol.

What would cause paper jams in a hp 4100 printer


Where is it jamming. Printer this age could have fuser issues, worn rollers that are not picking up properly. Is the jammed paper crinkled up or does the printer stop before damaging the paper? If paper is not damaged, the cause is usually in the paper pickup slipping and causing the printer to think that the paper is either too long or too short. Clean all the rollers in the paper tray cavity with a damp cloth.

My Lexmark c534n printer keeps jamming. I have changed the rubber rollers and the photoconductors. However, the paper will not even go up into photoconductor area. The rollers do try to push the papers...


The fuser rollers might be damaged. Check if the fuser rollers are damaged because if they are they can cause the paper jam, and might need to be replaced.

How do I clear a paper Jam


Try either of the following methods to clear the paper jam. The operator panel displays the Ready message when the jam is cleared.Method A:
  1. Press Paper Rewind until the Paper Empty message appears.
  2. Press Paper Advance to re-load the paper into the printer.
    The printer advances the paper, then cuts and discharges about 24 in. (61 cm) of blank paper. This reduces the possibility of fingerprints or other damage to the prints.
Method B:
  1. Turn off the printer and open the upper cover.
  2. Remove the ribbon from the printer.
    Caution: Prevent damage to the printer. Do not pull abruptly on the paper.
  3. Slowly and carefully pull the jammed paper out of the printer.
  4. Cut off any damaged or printed areas of the paper. Do not damage or mark any of the rollers.
  5. Close the upper cover and turn on the printer.
  6. Press Paper Rewind to rewind the paper into the printer.
    Note: If the Paper Jam message still appears on the operator panel, press Paper Rewind again.
  7. Open the upper cover and reload the ribbon.
  8. Close the cover.
  9. Reload the paper.
Note: If the Paper Jam message still displays on the operator panel, and you are at the end of a paper roll, it is possible that a segment of paper is too short to automatically exit the printer. Remove the front cleaning roller and remove the segment of paper.

Model No MFC7420 Paper gets stuck through heat roller - constantly opening up machine and pulling paper out. Very annoying. Can this be resolved? Or is it an expensive fix


normally if the paper is jam after the heat roller and before the exit part.. the cause of the problem is the wore out Paper Eject Roller.. it's not an expensive fix..the cost probably will between US20 to US30..
But if the paper get jam before the roller..you might need to check the heat roller finger...if that is damaged.. it would cause paper to jam as well...

What would cause the machine to wrinkle every 5th page? The first 4 are fine.


Damage to the feeder mechanism or pickup roller assembly would cause a cyclic feeding problem like you describe. For example, two cracked gears. This kind of problem may drive the paper fine until the damaged area on both components align with each other, then the feeder would stop for a moment causing the paper still being driven from behind to bunch up against the roller.

When the thing starts turning again the paper is now buckled and causes a jam. But, when you pull out the paper you move the roller and the two components back out of sync therefore allowing it to work until the next cycle. (In this case 4 pages)

MY PRINTER SAYS PAPER JAM BUT HERE IS NO PAPER IN IT ???


Look for any traces of tiny paper shreds that might got stuck between the rollers. That might be causing the paper jam error. If you could open the back cover, check from there also as those paper shreds might also blocking the sensor.

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.
