http://www.support.xerox.com/support/phaser-6010/videos/enus.html

And click on the second video which shows how to clear a paperjam from the back.

If you follow this, are you able to clear this?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I have already watch the videos before I still can't get the printer to work it says paper jam rear can you help
Expert:  Richard replied 5 months ago.

ok, I provided the video as you asked how to open the rear of the printer.

Have you followed the other videos to ensure that the paper is not stuck in another section of the printer?

Can you see the piece of paper?

Did you actually see a tear on the paper you removed?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I think you are correct there's paper stuck somewhere in the rear of the printer
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
no I cannot see the paper inside the machine
Expert:  Richard replied 5 months ago.

Did you actually see a tear on the paper you removed?

Expert:  Richard replied 5 months ago.

ok, Get a piece of card and manually push it though all the paper guides to dislodge any paper from the back please.

Let me know how you go.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
not sure where to push the the card through what are the green levers for
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
you recommend that I push from the back or from the front
Expert:  Richard replied 5 months ago.

All directions as it will depend where the paper is lodged.

So start by front to back and if no success then back to front.

Your pushing the card through where the paper feeds and comes out.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
what functions do the green levers on the top left and right do
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
besides releasing the rear cover is there any more pieces that will come out
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
window
Jam at Exit open rear door
Expert:  Richard replied 5 months ago.

The leavers are for releasing the printer, this is why I provided the videos as it shows you the exact function to do this.

You need them in the up position as per the video I gave.

Then feed the paper through manually.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
the paper that I try to insert on the top of the printer does not accept more than 3 inches
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
also it does not accept more than a couple inches in the rear of the printer also
Expert:  Richard replied 5 months ago.

You need to use a bit of force as it will go through, the card also needs to be stiff enough as not to bend

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I think I actually need to drop this off for repair tools are probably necessary do you agree
Expert:  Richard replied 5 months ago.

Not yet, if you can get a strong enough piece of board you will be able to force it through and it should get the paper out.

The next step is dismantling it, but the card nearly always works for my customers

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
it doesn't seem to resolve it also doesn't accept thin cardstock
Expert:  Richard replied 5 months ago.

It needs to be pushed through quite hard but it will accept it, I think the card your using is too thin or the rollers may have locked up and this is the cause of the error (the drive motor seized or a gear has broken which can make it believe it is jammed).

But if the card cannot go through then the only option is to have is dismantled so the path can be checked as well as the gears and the drive motor which they will have to do at a service center.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
yeah I think it needs to go to the service center I'd rather not do more damage than it has already
so what happens now as far as billing
Expert:  Richard replied 5 months ago.

You have already paid the deposit which was for the service I provided to go through all possible causes and rule them out to confirm the problem.

This is what we did and what you paid for. If we were only paid for fixing an issue, no one would have taken your question due to the possibility of it not being resolvable. But of course, it is up to you as the customer whether you wish to pay me for the service recieved, but you now have the issue confirmed by me and know what you need to do.

If you need anything else, please let me know

Thanks

Richard
