Problem: Paper jams
1. Turn off your printer before attempting to remove a paper jam to lower the chance of hurting yourself or the printer in the process.
2. Remove loose paper from the tray.
3. Check for jams in all the paper trays and exits, including inside the machine along the path where the paper runs.
4. Once you’ve found the jammed paper, pull out the jammed sheets one at a time.
5. Be gentle—never rip the paper out and check for a lever or knob that will easily release the paper.
6. Close all doors and turn on the printer—the printer should reset itself automatically.
If the printer reports that it is still jammed, double-check for stray paper scraps, and close all the doors again. If the printer continues to report an error, turn it off and then back on again.


Problem: Wireless print too slow
To get the best performance from a network printer, it's hard to beat a wired, Ethernet-cable-to-router connection. Wireless printing may be more convenient in many homes and offices, but it has its limitations. Since Wi-Fi speeds slow down with distance, you can take a stab at putting your wireless printer as close as possible to the router. Also, make sure your Wi-Fi printer or any wireless print server it connects to supports the 802.11n spec, which can rival the performance of 100-mbps Ethernet.
