How do I clear the message "Jam Tray 1" or  "Jam Tray 2" from the LCD display?

To clear paper jams, please follow the steps below.

  1. Pull the paper tray completely out of the machine.

The LCD names for the paper trays are as follows.

  • Standard paper tray: Tray 1
  • Optional lower tray: Tray 2 (MFC models only)

  1. Use both hands to slowly pull out the jammed paper. Make sure the full page comes out.
  1. Make sure the paper is below the maximum paper mark (1). While pressing the green paper - guide release lever (2), slide the paper guides to fit the paper size. Make sure that the guides are firmly in the slots.
  1. Put the paper tray firmly back in the machine.

DO NOT take out the standard paper tray while paper is feeding from a lower paper tray as this will cause a paper jam.
