You open your printer (use your manual to correctly do this)
check all paper paths to see if any paper is stuck
Next take out the toner and drum and check again for any stray scraps of paper that may have been stuck there.
Also open the paper tray and look inside there to see if anything is stuck there.
If your printer has a single sheet tray check there too
If your printer has a back opening, check there too
I recomend that you also purchase "paper path cleaning sheets" to keep the unit clean and paper jam free (once a week if you print constantly and twice a month if a casual user)
NEVER NEVER NEVER get mad and RIP out stuck paper. Such an action will break internal mechanisms inside your laser printer.
Hope this helps Have a great day
