Today we are going to teach you how to repair a printer so you do not have to rent a scanner because it's the largest office supply you have and can be a giant pain. Let begin by getting rid of all the extra paper at the output bin, and the priorty slot, the priorty slot is the main input tray and the slot above the input tray. Turn to the back of the printer. Press the power button to turn off the copier. Unplug the power cord and wait for the copier to cool. Return to the front of the scanner. Open the printer cartridge door. Look in the printer for the printer cartridge. Using the handle in the middle of the faxes cartridge remove the cartridge from the scanner. This all depends on the model. To get the exposed paper out use both your hands to avoid ripping of the paper and pull evenly. If any torn pieces of paper remain inside the scanner then more paper jams will likely happen. Once all the paper is removed you can then re-insert the cartridge back into the printer. Then shut 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. Do the same for the length guide as well. Do not push either guide in so tightly that it bends the paper.
