    Paper jams because of dusty paper feed rollers is a common problem I think. I just cleaned the feed rollers of my laser printer, and now it works again. I wish I had found this video before I did it. I spent quite a lot of time troubleshooting. By the way, OKI recommends just water on the cloth. I got good results with just water on a microfibre cloth. Thanks for the good video.

    I wish to correct my previous comment. Cleaning with water on a cloth is not effective in the long run. The video creator suggests using alcohol on the cloth. I have found alcohol to work much better than water for my printer. Thanks again for the video. Alcohol as used in the video is a good recommendation.

    Thank you for this! I used a pair of pliars to pull out the little plastic tab: it was very easy to do and worked a treat! Cleaned the rubber with methalated spirits and my printer is now as good as new and runs perfectly. Thanks!
