SOURCE: paper jam

Step1
Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred. 
Step
2
Turn off the printer. 
Step
3
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper. 
Step
4
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge. 
Step
5
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it. 
Step
6
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A). The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam. 
Step
7
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though. 
Step
8
Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on. 
Step
9
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.

SOURCE: message unable to print 50

Machine Error 50 either means that there is a loose object inside the machine (usually piece of paper), or that there is a mechanical error which would need you to have the machine sent to service.

SOURCE: I had the Bro 8840D repaired following a paper

okay, try this...clear the paper jam message and try to make a copy using the manual bypass (MP tray) located on front of machine. if copy comes through okay, then chances are you have a problem in main cassette area. pull cassette out, and make sure the rear stop inside cassette is not pushed too tightly against rear of paper stack. should leave about 1/8" gap. if thats okay, then sounds like you may need your paper pickup roller replaced. sounds like your repair shop just fixed the error, not the cause of the error.

Paper is stuck/jammed on the drum and I am having difficulty removing the d rum unit and toner


Hi lbestu,

Please Read Tip Carefully :-

Tip: To manually remove paper pull on the paper with both hands being careful not to tear the paper while pulling it. If you're unable to get to an edge of the paper that allows you to pull it you may need to manually rotate the gears that feed the paper through the printer.

1.Turn off the printer.
2.Inspect the location or tray the printed paper ejects to. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.
3.Remove all paper trays and any paper that may be stuck between the tray and the printer. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.
4.Open the printer door that allows you access to the printer ink cartridges or toner and look for any stuck paper. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it
5.Turn the printer back on. If you continue to receive a printer jam error try repeating the above steps again. If issue still persist and you see no paper that is stuck in the printer it's likely your printer is experiencing another hardware issues and we suggest contacting the printer manufacturer for additional assistance or repair

Hope It's resolve all Your HP Printer Problem,

Before you can clear a "PAPER JAM" or "PRINTER JAM" error, you must locate where in the unit the paper is jammed.
First, unplug the machine for safety and disconnect the telephone line. Next, follow these instructions based on where the paper jam is located.


Paper is jammed inside the paper tray:
  1. Pull the paper tray out of the machine.

  5. Gently move the print head to the center.

    Note Be careful to not force the print head to move.
    If the print head is positioned at the far right hand side, you cannot move it. Please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".



  6. Examine under the print head. If anything is found, remove it.

    Note Use a flashlight if necessary to check thoroughly.





  7. Lift the scanner cover to release the lock. Gently push the scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover.

  8. Reconnect the power cord and telephone line.

Note To prevent paper jams, do not put multiple kinds of paper in the paper tray at the same time.

Preventing a printer paper jam
As mentioned earlier it is inevitable that you will encounter at least one paper jam during the life of your printer. However, if you're encountering frequent paper jams following the below steps can help prevent paper jams from occurring.

  • If your printer has a paper tray do not fill the tray to capacity. If you're encountering frequent paper jams reduce the amount of paper you place in the tray each time it is filled.
  • Make sure you or the tray feeding the paper into the printer is aligned properly and/or the slider used to hold the paper in place in the tray is snug with the paper. Many printers have sliders that allow different types and sizes of paper to be fed into the printer. If the slider is not properly positioned it can cause paper jams.
  • Use standard office paper; folded paper, paper with labels, and specialty paper such as hard bound paper can often cause paper jams. If you're uncertain with what type of paper you should use with your printer your printer documentation will list the types of paper compatible with your printer.
  • Do not mix the types of paper you're feeding into the printer at one time. If you need to change the type of paper or size of paper being used removed any other paper currently in the printer before inserting the new paper.
  • Examine the printer for any previous stuck paper in the printer. Previous paper jams, torn paper, printing labels or other foreign objects in the printer can cause reoccurring printer jams.
