I pulled the paper jam out, now printer will not print
Switch the printer off, remove the back cover, now you will see rubber rollers, try turning them slowly either upwards or downwards, if they move freely then proceed to the next step. Look for any paper or any loose pieces that are stuck between the rollers and casing, if so then remove it from the printer.
Close the casing at the back,Switch on the printer, now open the front of the printer, the lid should be pushed slightly upwards, you will see a clear ribbon and a round rubber bar, also you will notice the printer cartridges moving to the side as you open the lid of that printer. If the cartridges did not move back to the one side, it means that the guidance rod is dirty and sticky, even if it did move to the side, and you heard the grinding noise, take a piece of paper towel, wipe the metal rod clean, now take some clear vaseline, gently apply it to the length of the shaft / rod, now close the lid and open the lid after powering the printer. If the problem persist, it could mean that the roller gear is worn, this is situated on the one side of the round rubber feeder / roller. Try moving the roller with your thumbs, up or down. Is it jammed? Y then replace or have it repaired. N Close the lid, insert the paper and press the paper feeder button, did it load correct? Y then it is fixed, if not get back to me asap
