  • Please turn the printer off then unplug it and disconnect the usb cable.
  • Remove all paper from the printer and then blow out the feed roller and paper tray throughly with compressed air three or four times.
  • Once done plug in back in and insert a single sheet of paper.
  • Turn the printer on and then connect the usb cable. Then please test the printer and see if the problem is still there.

Thank you
