(1) Slowly pull the paper out, either from the Auto Sheet Feeder or from the Paper Output Slot, whichever is easier.

If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the printer, open the Top Cover and remove it.

Caution: Be careful not to touch the components inside the printer at this time.

After removing all paper, close the Top Cover, turn the printer off and turn it back on.

If you cannot pull the paper out, turn the printer off and turn it back on. The paper will be ejected automatically.

(2) Reload the paper into the printer, and press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer.

If you have turned off the printer in step (1), you will need to retry printing, because this operation cancels any print jobs in progress.
