Expert:  Pete replied 6 months ago.

Approximately how old is the printer?

Did any paper get jammed in it before the problems started?

Expert:  Pete replied 6 months ago.

Based on the information you have provided so far, check for any paper jams and ensure all small pieces of torn paper have been removed.

Let me know if that works.
