1. Take off 3 plastic covers one above exit area-slide top to left to access screw
remove lower exit cover and side cover -unsnaps with 2 pins and there is one more cover I think over the fan that needs to come off.
2.Locate black plastic sheet covering a circuit board carefully pull this back-disconnect 3 plastic connectors that lead from the heater to the circuit board
3. using a offset phillips #2 screwdriver remove 3 screws that hold the fuser to the frame. carefully lift fuser up and out toward the exit area.
4. pop off black cover remove 2 screws from top of fuser, disengage cover lid locks with a small screwdriver, lift upper fuser heater-be careful NOT to damage
plastic heater membrane. remove paper jam and reassemble.

the jam is in the fuser assembly. you will have to have a technician fix this. the fuser will probably need to be replaced.

Paper jam

you need to remove the jammed paper, you may need to take the printer apart as much as possible to get it all out, the manual generally has instructions on clearing a jam do you have the manual do you need it?

Printer will give a message of paper jam appears to be unable to pick up paper from tray . Can I fix this with a new paper tray if so where do I get one ? Or is there a better solution

I have worked on many a printer and I have yet to find one that when it says there is a paper jam is lying. You may need to take the printer apart to find the jam. It can be the tiniest of paper and can be located in an area that is difficult to find without taking the printer apart.

It also may be that the rollers that pick up the paper are bad. These should be easily replaced. Check the manual or help support online with the printer manufacturer for replacement parts. Typically the paper tray does not have the rollers so replacing the tray may not help you.

Error, paper output slot

That means the sensor flag under the platen roller is broken, bent, or jammed in the up position. Hard to see and must be taken apart to repair.

My dell 1700n Laser Printer Paper Jam Light stays on

The sensor is stuck open or closed. It needs to move back and forth between the sensor. Check the paper path for the sensors.

Paper Jam in OKI B4300 Led Printer

This printer is designed with a dual toner/drum chamber. Do not separate these two parts. Upon opening the lid, you will find the toner/drum assembly right in front of you. Pick it up with both hands and pull straight up. After that, you should be able to take the jammed papers. Know this: once a paper is jammed, printing another paper will NEVER take the first out. Just make sure to remove the complete papers. If they break, make sure you extract all the pieces.
