Now that we are sure that it is paper jam error according to the error message display on your screen you might go ahead and continue with this procedure. First, disconnect the printer power cord.

Step #2:
Try to find the exact spot where the paper jam is located.
Note: Paper sheets tend to become stuck in the following places: between the paper tray and the actual printing site, or between the printing site and the exit tray.

Step #3:
Remove the paper tray from the printer. You can now check from the paper tray all the way to the printing site for any jams. If everything is fine, please check for crumpled pieces of paper in the paper tray.

Step #4:
Open all the gates that are related to the paper feed and printing process on your printer, especially a very important door located on the back of the printer. It will have a paper jam symbol engraved on it since paper jams tend to be found in this area. This is how the printer looks...

Step #5:
We recommend you remove the toner or ink cartridges from the printer. If you can remove the photoconductor unit, take it out as well to avoid messing with future impressions, and remember to keep your printer turned off.

When everything will be completed please put back the ink cartridges in the same spot you found them.

Step 6:
If you can see any stuck piece of paper, remove it slowly but firmly to avoid tearing it inside your printer and delaying the entire process.

Step #7:
If the paper sheets rip, please move the roller’s cogs. Please imitate the natural movement they make during the printer process until the pieces of paper come out.

Step #8:
Place the ink or toner ink cartridges back in the printer. Check for any pieces of paper scattered in the printer and remove them if you find any.

Step #9:
Turn the printer on and check everything’s working properly. If the paper jam error message is displayed again, you may have left some pieces of paper inside that are blocking the printing process, so take another close look at your printer.
