Avoid paper jams

To help avoid paper jams, follow these guidelines.

Remove printed papers from the output tray frequently.

Make sure that you are printing with paper that is not wrinkled, folded, or damaged.

Prevent curled or wrinkled paper by storing all unused paper flat in a resealable bag.

Do not use paper that is too thick or too thin for the printer.

Make sure that the trays are loaded correctly and are not too full. For more information, see

Load paper on page 23.

Ensure that paper loaded in the input tray lays flat and the edges are not bent or torn.

Do not place too much paper in the document feeder tray. For information on the maximum

number of sheets allowed in the automatic document feeder, see Paper size and weights

on page 166.

Do not combine different paper types and paper sizes in the input tray; the entire stack of paper

in the input tray must be the same size and type.

Adjust the paper-width guides in the input tray to fit snugly against all paper. Make sure the

paper-width guides do not bend the paper in the input tray.

Do not force paper too far forward in the input tray.

If you are printing on both sides of a page, do not print highly saturated images on light weight


Use paper types that are recommended for the printer. For more information, see Paper size

and weights on page 166.

If the printer is about to run out of paper, allow the printer to run out of paper first, and then add

paper. Do not try to add paper when the printer is trying to pick up a sheet.

Make sure that the printer is clean. For more information, see Maintain the printer on page 34.
