Paper Jam Problems in Samsung® Printers
Are papers getting jammed in your Samsung printer? Find out how to solve the problem.
Printers are devices that are essential for taking hard copies of the files on the system. Printers are essential for working in home as well as office environments and they are classified according to the types of prints they produce. Samsung printers are very popular because of their usability and high quality print producing capabilities. However, there are some problems that might come up with the use of Samsung printers. Some of the common problems include paper jamming, very poor quality prints being produced, printer freeze etc. The paper getting jammed on Samsung printers is a common issue that is mostly hardware related. The paper jam issue on Samsung printers is usually caused by reasons such as dirt accumulation in the pickup roller, malfunction of the paper roller, problems with the sensor on the printer etc. Paper jam issues would make printing with the printer impossible. If paper on your Samsung printer is jamming very often, and followed by noises from the printer, then it is recommended that the printer be taken to an authorized service centre as the issue might be complicated. Samsung printer users must also make sure that when the paper is inserted into the printer, they are of uniform length and they are stacked neatly one over the other so that the paper can be fed easily into the printer. Users must also secure the paper holding tray once the paper has been fully loaded and ready for use.
Following details gives users more information regarding tips to resolve paper jam issues in Samsung printers:
- Clean pickup roller
- Replace pickup roller
- Check printer sensor/ paper path
Clean pickup roller
Dirt accumulation within the pickup roller can cause paper jam issues with Samsung printers. The problem comes up as the roller would have friction and the paper would not be able to move freely before the next sheet is taken in for printing. Users can check the pickup roller (above the paper tray) and clean it with a clean cloth to remove dirt and resolve the issue.
Replace pickup roller
The pickup roller on your Samsung printer is very delicate and over time the roller might get worn out or damaged. In such cases, the paper jam issue caused by the worn out roller can be only resolved by replacing the pickup roller. As pickup rollers are inexpensive, users would be able to get a genuine spare easily and replace it without any problems.
Check printer sensor/ paper path
Your Samsung printer has sensors that allow the printer to understand the movement of the paper over the paper path. If this sensor got some dirt accumulation or there is some kind of obstruction to the path of the paper, then paper would jam. In such cases, cleaning the sensors and clearing any foreign material in paper path would solve the issue.
