Powder from the paper may build up on the surface of the paper pick-up roller. This may cause the paper to slip as it is picked from the tray. To solve this problem follow the steps below:
- Clean the paper pick-up roller
- Unplug the machine from the AC power outlet (electrical socket).
- Pull the paper trays completely out of the machine.
- Open the Jam Clear Cover (1) at the back of the machine.
- Clean the Back Paper Feed Rollers (1) with a soft lint-free cloth moistened with water.
Slowly turn the rollers so that the whole surface is cleaned. After cleaning, wipe the rollers with a dry, soft lint-free cloth to remove all moisture.
Do not touch the metal shaft.
- Close the Jam Clear Cover. Make sure the cover is closed completely.
- Put the paper trays firmly back in the machine.
- Re-connect the power cord.
- Flip the paper in the paper tray
If you are using paper that has a coating on one side (ex. Photo Paper) skip this step.
- Take the paper out of the tray and fan the stack of paper well.
- Install the paper into the paper tray with the other side of paper face up.
- Put the paper tray firmly back in the machine.
- Start copying or printing again.
If you still have a problem after performing the previous steps Brother recommends copying or printing your document at a higher resolution (increased resolutions will print your document at slower speeds).
