From other information listed I was able to answer my own question. On this model there is swingarm right after the fuser that verifies the paper made it through the fuser. It's shaped like a lightning bolt symbol or stretched out letter "S" and has small round sticking from each side near the middle point; on the one end there is a small flat square. The part pops into a matching holder and when the paper comes through the fuser it pushes one end of the part causing the flat part on the other end to swing and pass between 2 sensors (magenetic?) which creates a signal and tells the brain of the machine that the paper made it through the fuser. I found this by opening the back where the fuser is located and saw the part laying there and how once I put it the right way it go right between those sensors (or maybe called pick-ups). I know what caused the arm to pop out; a huge paper jam on a humid day when somehouse 6-7 sheets managed to stick together and either they knocked the swingarm off or I did when clearing the jam.

    Seems odd responding to myself - my expertise is in air conditioning. Apologies for the missing words and mispellings - another all nighter on the computer.

ON Samsung SCX 4216 Error: Paper Jam 0 Open/Close Door Can't find any paper stuck in it. Error does not go away even when turned off and on or unplugged.

Hello! Welcome to FixYa

Paper jam
means their may be small bit paper jam in side

There are some "micro-sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper, or a lump of dust, inside those sensors, thus "tripping" the sensor and saying you paper jam.

To solve it
Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feeder

If you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects then
Turn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow" by compressed air.
more over roll the toner gear check if its not obstructing to something .
secondly try to cut/delete any pending print jobs thats right next to clock on your dektop.then restart PC and then plug the printer and PC on see if it works.

If still problem exist then, post your query here ,

I hope this solution will helpful for you

I'm trying to print and i always get a paper jam in door one. If I open the back door, the paper comes out 1 inch and stops. The paper is getting 95% printed on and then gets jammed. I changed the toner...


1. You have to clear paper feed roller
- to do this just follow simple steps:
- open fron cover
- remove toner cartridge
- use wet cloth (water or alcohol) to clear rubber feeder
- put toner cartridge back
- close front door

2. If the problem persist - chek all paper path sensors for lack of moving.

Good luck!

Samsung SCX-4216F feed wheel

Clean the Feed Roller In the middle of the printer. Take the paper tray out- you will see the roller in the middle. Send a print job with paper tray removed. Press the black thing to fool the printer that it has paper. You will see the feed roller move. When it is in the position you want to clean- open the toner door and it will stop moving so you can clean it. Isopropyl alcohol and LINT FREE CLOG.
