  1. Press printer's Stop  button.

  2. Load one sheet of 4"x6" 10x15cm or larger paper in portrait orientation in the cassette.

  3. Turn the printer off.

  4. Turn the printer on.

    When the loaded paper is fed, the jammed paper will be pushed out.

     If the jammed paper is not ejected, try cleaning the paper feed rollers before step 5. The jammed paper may be ejected along with the paper used for cleaning the paper feed rollers.

     If the jammed paper is not ejected after taking the above actions, detach the rear cover and remove the jammed paper from the rear side.

  5. Load plain paper, photo paper, or envelopes in the cassette.

     Do not load paper in landscape orientation. It may cause a paper jam.
