Question about Brother MFC-7820N Laser Printer
I had the same problem for a few days. The paper only makes it a couple inches through the last rollers entering the output tray and the rest of the paper forms pleats like accordian bellows. This started to happen nearly every time. Changing the paper, toner and drum as well as cleaning do not help. Lift the scanner, which covers the output tray, and watch to see that the rollers at the back of the tray are actually turning when printing. If they are turning, then the paper should come right through into the output tray without forming pleats. You can push down on the four spring loaded bottom rollers at the back of the output tray to check that they will let paper through. My printer stopped making the pleated sheets.

I have MFC7420 and 7220 and have the same problems. So bad, almost every paper was jammed like an accordion. SoI opened the back panel and unscrew the part with the small roller and take it out to clean them. I found there is another roller on the ceiling of the same area and I cleaned that area as well and roll the rubber roller several times. It's been 2 weeks free of jam now! I like it.

Lift up the automatic document feeder. The feeder makes up the top half of printer, and it can be opened like the hood of a car. Lift the sides of it slowly. This exposes the printer mechanism and ink cartridges. Pull the jammed paper up and out of the printer mechanism with both hands. Pull it gently to ensure you don't damage any components.
