You can do it yourself!! it take a little bit of time and patience. do it in an area that you can clean easily. take off and unplug the top, turn upside down, get a flat screw driver and start removing all the papers in the teeth area. from time to time you will need to put it bank and turn it on and make it go forward and reverse.

Fax says remove jam paper we have done that.pressed cancel and it still says remove jam. we have unplugged and plugged back in. the cartridge does not move so we can not remove that. what next


Obviosly you have not remooved all the jam, you have to rotate your gear all the way around to make sure it is all clear.
Sometime a little pice is hiding under one of the toothes. So check again theroly..
Good luck.

Machine diplays "paper jammed" with no paper in


Hello
This the method to clear paper jam, follow these steps:-
Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.
Turn off the printer.
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the ink cartridge. 5 If necessary, remove the ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though.
Replace the ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
Good Luck

Message says remove paper jam but there is no paper jam. What now?


Generally; if there is a sensor problem or stuck sensor, this error will come up and stay on the display even after turning off and on. If you are getting paper with a crease or fold, then something is pulling or locking up in the paper path. Common causes could be a pickup feed assembly, registration, underneath the cartridge, the fuser or something in the output assembly. You could try a paper path test and select it to print from different trays to see if the issue may be just in one tray area or if it happens from all trays.

Saw your numerous posts at different times during 2009 and wanted to let you know I posted a potential solution for you. Hope it works for your situation... I've copied idea below for your review. Worked perfectly for me 15 minutes ago.
***********************************************************
------ SOLVING THAT "PAPER JAM" ERROR ------
REFER TO THE USER SUBMITTED PHOTO FOR GRAPHICAL NOTES AT THE other HP Officejet Pro L7780 Color All-in-One Printer/Fax/Scanner/Copier (C8192A#ABA)Amazon 7780 Product Page here:

Required...
Tools:
(2) Medium sized paper clips

Preferable Tools:
(1) Pair of pliers with rubber grips
(1) Edged tool such as wall paper knife, metal pick or toothpick to clean out gear teeth.

This fix applies to paper jams the device believes are in the rear duplexer and often occurs after a real jam that has shredded the paper inside the mechanism.

Despite the fact you've carefully cleaned out all the visible paper from inside with the cover open, paper can jam the gears used to drive the rear rollers and even the tiniest amount of shred prevents operation resulting in the impossible Paper Jam error.

HP Tech Support online and on the phone don't troubleshoot it past "clear the paper from the device than try again please" b.s.

After removing the duplexer, grip any of the four rubber rollers and attempt to rotate in either direction, if they don't move freely with little effort, then continue with these instructions.

Begin:
1. Take the first paper clip and contact the lower two brass rectangles, this fools the device into believing the duplexer is installed, keep the contacts bridged (don't remove your hand or the paper clip until Step 4.) THERE IS NO ELECTROCUTION RISK.
2. Press the "OK" button on the control panel to pretend the paper jam is cleared.
3. CAREFULLY OBSERVE THE pair of white gears on the left, if they seem to clutch, stall, skip or freeze then you have paper shards which are causing the jam.
4. Using a firmer grip or pliers, grip the furthest left rubber roller and rotate in either direction , the gears should rotate with your efforts and look for shards of paper in the gear teeth.
5. Use the paper clip, toothpick or any appropriate edged tool to clear the shards.

Bridge the lower contacts again and observe if the gears rotate freely, if so then you've cleared the insidious jam should be able to print until the next error from this piece of chit printer.

Hope helps.

Remove jammed paper


I had the same problem.
I found that the gears driving the printhead cleaning mechanism was jammed.

To solve this, I removed the top cover (6 screws and a clip centre bottom, back).
Please take care when working on the Fax machine as there are high voltages present.
It is best to always remove the power sorce when working on electronic equipment.
I removed the cleaning mechanism (2 screws)(you have to remove the circuit board next to it to get to the one screw). I did not disconnect the ribbon cable from the circuit board, only the two smaller cables.

Once removed, I gently tried to rotate the cleaning mechanism by turning the plastic gears. It should rotate freely by 360 degrees. If it sticks at all, there is most probably some dirt stuck to one of the gears. Using a magnifying glass, carefully inspect the gears for dirt and gently remove the dirt with something thin and pointy like a bag needle. Be sure to check that the gears are still adequately covered in grease afterwards.

Reassemble and test before fitting the top cover.
I do not know why they set the fax up to give a paper jam when this item jams but this was the problem on my fax.

Good luck and I hope this solves your problem.
Regards,
Gary

My mailmate shredder from Staples has jammed and I can't figure out how to unjam it.


unfortunately you will have to do it by hand!!!!!!!!

unplug, get a flat head screwdriver, take off top and turn upside down. you will see a lot of sredded paper where the teeth are, you need to clear all of that.
it may also be that you have a stale or something of that nature blocking the teeth.
Also do a reverse, I did one over the weekend and had to do it several times while cleaning it out, very messy so make sure you do it somewhere that you can easily clean up, also don't forget you are supposed to use a special lube paper once in a while. (Office Depot,/Max/Staples

Paper Jam


hey, give this a try:

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Does it say clear jam immediatly or does it start to run then declare a jam?
If it starts then tells you to clear a jam and no paper is in the machine, your feed rollers are shot. Smooth like trying to drive a car on ice.
If it says that all the time, no attempt to feed then you have a sensor either dirty, knocked out of place or something stuck on a sensor.
Either in the paper path or in the scanner.

Brother 2820 Says clear scanner jam and press stop


Make sure there is nothing caught where the documents go it. List up the scanner cover and look inside. It may need a separator pad or clean the feed rollers with some alcohol. Lawrence
