9541 Media Jams

This article shows you how to clear your 9541 Media Jams with simple to follow instructions. When it detects a jam, your printers display screen will display a error message indicating what type of jam you have and where. If you’re unsure how to fix the issue press the help button, lit up red, and use the guide provided by the printer. While your printer will refer to a paper jam, it’s a generic term that covers our plate media too.

Before you start trouble shooting jams, give your printer time to cool down and take care handling its parts. Instructions that follow assume you are directly facing the front of the machine.

Jams located in the Fuser unit will result in an error message being displayed on the control panel display. The error prompt will point to the left side cover having a paper jam.

Open Left Drawer

Fusers can be found in the left hand side of the printer

Using the handle, pull the entire left drawer fully open, revealing are the fuser, exit and transfer roller units. The printer uses the fuser to bond toner to your components surface. It does this using heat, so beware the unit may still be hot if recently used.

Remove Fuser

If your media won’t pull free, take the fuser out

To release the fuser, flip the retaining blue clips on the unit. There are two blue clips on the top and two on the side, simply lift these to the up position. Once released, use the provided top handle and lift out the unit and place it on a clean surface.

With the two top blue clips on the fuser unit being raised up, any jammed media component should simply pull free. Take hold of the longest part of the component showing and pull it free. Now replace the fuser into its slot, and lock it into position by switching down the blue clips and close the left drawer.
