Financing a multifunction printer could always be a huge pain because it's one of the biggest office supplies you have, so where going to show you how to repair it the common paper jam. Lets begin by getting rid of all the extra paper at the output bin, and the priorty slot, the priorty slot is the primary input tray and the slot above the input tray. Spin the copier around & look at the back. Press the power switch to turn off the faxes. Unplug the power cord and wait for the faxes to cool. Return to the front of the printer. Open the copier cartridge door. Now check the inside of it for the faxes cartridge. Using the handle in the middle of the scanner cartridge remove the cartridge from the multifunction printer. This all depends on the model. Using both hands grab the edge of the paper that is most exposed and pull evenly to avoid tearing. If any torn pieces of paper stay inside the printer then more paper jams will likely happen. When all the paper is gone from the printer you can then put the cartridge back into the printer. Close the printer cartridge door. Finally, load paper into the input tray until it stops. Change your paper width guide until it stops at the end of the paper. Repeat for length guide to. Do not push either guide in so tightly that it bends the paper. Press retry on the error message of the faxes or attempt to faxes from the original document on the PC.

Wait about thirty seconds after you have turned the power off. Then turn on your computer by plugging the cord back in. reprint the file from the computer or press retry on the error message.

Sometimes the way the paper is loaded into the faxes tray can cause the paper to get jammed. First slide the papers length and width guides to their outter-most places. Gather the stack of paper you are trying to print on so you can look it over it. If you find any damage paper then toss it out. This includes any ripped, wrinkled or curled sheets of paper. Make sure that there are atleast 10 sheets of plain white paper, However, keep it at a minimum of twenty-five sheets of paper in the scanner stack. Many multifunction printer can hold more, but this number is best for testing. Make sure all of the paper is the same size and type then tap it on a flat surface to get the edges perfectly align.

Then finally load paper into the input load until it stops. Adjust the paper width guide until it stops at the edge of the paper. Repeat for the paper length guide as well.
