Overfilling the paper tray is frequently causes paper jams. Many printers have sliding mechanisms that allow different types and sizes of paper to be fed into the printer. If the slider is not correctly positioned, it can cause a paper jam.
Push down the release lever to slightly raise the feeder mechanism and release the paper. Then slowly pull the jammed paper out of the feeder mechanism. (Be careful not to pull too hard; the paper may tear, making it more difficult to remove.) If paper is still jammed inside the mechanism, open the cover to remove it.
A paper feed issue can occur for several reasons, such as dusty or contaminated paper rollers, the condition of the paper in the tray, or even issues with the software.
If the paper feed rollers are dirty or paper powder is attached to it, paper may not be fed properly. In this case, clean the paper feed rollers. Cleaning will wear out the paper feed rollers, so perform this only when necessary. Make sure that the power is turned on and remove any paper from the rear tray.
Document specifications. The Automatic Document Feeder (B81321 ) allows you to automatically load multi-page documents into your scanner. This is useful for OCR (optical character recognition) scanning, or for creating an image database or PDF files.
One of the most common causes of paper jams is that the paper has simply not been loaded correctly into the printer paper feed.

Insert the paper with the printable side up. Place the paper against the left side of the manual feed slot and insert it horizontally. Load one sheet at a time. Open the printer cover and adjust the end of the paper so that it is 1 cm from the roller.
Paper Feed Rollers
Created with a blending technology developed based on our extensive experience, these materials offer both a high friction coefficient retaining characteristic and superb abrasion resistance. We also mass-produce belt-shaped samples, in addition to ordinary rolls.
Paper curl is caused by an excess amount of moisture in the paper. The first step to ensure less paper curl is to store your paper in a cool, dry area. By doing so, you will reduce the amount of moisture and humidity the paper is exposed to. The next step is to always fan the paper before placing in the machine.
