Related to operator error is not observing environmental conditions. Environmental conditions play a huge part in printing. Ever wonder why some days print jobs go fine, and other days a sheet fed printer will take three sheets at a time? Anyone who has worked in a printing shop for more than two weeks will tell you its all about humidity. Quoting www.photocopiers.com.
Other Influences Regarding Paper Jamming: "One of the most common causes of paper jamming, other than poor quality paper, is humidity. Humidity disrupts the integrity of the paper, reduces its strength, and strongly inhibits copy quality. Paper can be ruined in as little as two hours if the copier is not located in a climate controlled office or if you live in such a place as the Pacific Northwest where rain and humidity are commonplace."
Before you say lasers are not copiers, well, it really doesn't matter whether the Organic Photo Conducting (OPC) drum is written to by a laser or by high-intensity light. The operations of an analog copier and a laser printer are almost identical.
