Printer complains: Insert Paper fully into MPF

Open Reg Cover Remove Paper
Insert Paper Fully into MPF


We've removed the paper and turned it on and off but it continues to complain. If we leave the paper out, it tells us to insert paper. If we put paper in we get the error message.

    Nothing is mentioned in the small LCD read out other than the two lines mentioned above.

    I do not know of any error code.

    Thanks for your response.

More then likely, the MPF roller is worn and simply no longer picking up paper from the tray. This would need to be replaced.

Pull the paper tray out and look for any obstructions in there.  Check for broken parts as well such a sensor.  Sometimes they get out of position as well.

I've got a 4 by 6 photo paper jam in my Lexmark S405 all-in-one printer.


Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:

1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Try to reach for the paper jam.

3. If paper jam can't be reached, open the printer cover to access the cartridge area. You may be able to get a better hold of the paper jam in the cartridge area.

4. Remove the paper jam and make sure not to tear or leave any torn piece of paper in the printer.



When paper jam is clear, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

We had a paper jam and although we got the paper out it won't feed properly anymore.


Try to remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Make sure there are no torn piece/s of paper left in the cartridge area or in the paper path. Close the cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, re-insert the cartridges and close the cover. Load some paper. Try to print again.

I'm not sure if I understand you correctly but it sounds like you had a paper jam problem and now your printer is not functioning properly. Here are some tips:
  • Make sure to remove the paper jam completely.
  • Avoid leaving torn paper in the printer, this would cause future paper jams.
  • Unload the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the printer cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, re-insert the cartridges and then close the printer cover. Load some paper. Try to print again.

My Dell MFP 1815dn has a paper Jam 2. I removed the toner cartridge and pulled the paper out, before I realized that I needed to open the back. I believe I thought I got the paper out, but the printer is...


After a paper jam occurs in the rear cover of a Dell Laser Multi-Function Printer 1815N, the printer will not resume when the jammed paper is removed. This is the normal behavior of the printer as there is no sensor on the rear cover of this printer.

To open the back cover and remove any stuck paper, perform the following steps:
  1. Open and close the front cover.
    The jammed paper may automatically exit the printer. If the paper does not exit, go to the next step.
  2. Gently pull the paper out of the output tray.
  3. If you cannot see the paper in the output tray or the paper does not move when pulled, open the rear cover.
  4. Skip to step 9. If you do not see the paper, go to the next step.If you see the jammed paper, push the two blue pressure levers up and remove the paper.
  5. Release the blue strap, the rear cover stopper, and fully open the rear cover.
  6. Unfold the duplex guide fully.
  7. While pushing the fuser lever to the right, open the fuser door. NOTICE: Make sure to unfold the duplex guide before opening the fuser door, or the fuser door may be damaged.
  8. Pull the jammed paper out.
  9. Return the levers, fuser door, rear cover stopper, and duplex guide to their original position.
  10. Close the rear cover.
  11. Open and close the front cover.
    Printing automatically resumes.

Hardware problem - papersensor x7350 create paperjam


There could be something blocking the paper path or maybe the printer just needs to be reset. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges from the carrier. While the cover is open, check for any foreign objects blocking the cartridge carrier's path and the paper path. If cartridge area is clear, close the printer cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, re-insert your cartridges. Load some paper (avoid overloading). Try to print again. If paper jam continues, then perhaps it's a mechanical problem. Please don't hesitate to contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Had paper jammed - removed jammed paper - but nerror light still on


Before you can clear a "PAPER JAM" or "PRINTER JAM" error, you must locate where in the unit the paper is jammed.
First, unplug the machine for safety and disconnect the telephone line. Next, follow these instructions based on where the paper jam is located.


Paper is jammed inside the paper tray:
  1. Pull the paper tray out of the machine.

Paper is jammed inside the machine:

  1. Re-insert the jam clear cover.

  2. If you can not pull out the jammed paper, lift the scanner cover from the right-hand side of the machine until it locks securely into the open position.

  3. Remove the jammed paper.

    Note Be careful to not force the print head to move.
    If the print head is positioned at the far right hand side, you cannot move it. Please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".



  6. Examine under the print head. If anything is found, remove it.

    Note Use a flashlight if necessary to check thoroughly.





  7. Lift the scanner cover to release the lock. Gently push the scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover.

Note To prevent paper jams, do not put multiple kinds of paper in the paper tray at the same time.

The paper light flashing because there is some paper inside the printer. Open the front cover and remove the cartridge and look inside for the jammed paper. Remove the jammed paper and insert the cartridge , closed the front cover and switch on the printer.

Printer isn't working correctly


To resolve this condition:
  1. Remove the power cable from the printer.
  2. Remove the paper tray from the printer.
  3. Remove the paper from the paper tray.
  4. Verify that the paper you're using has KODAK XTRALIFE Paper or a "G" inside a circle (for G600 series printer docks) on the back. Do not use 4- by 6-inch inkjet paper.
  5. Insert the paper tray into the printer.
  6. Open the color cartridge door, then remove the color cartridge.
  7. If the color cartridge ribbon is torn or damaged, replace it with a new cartridge.
  8. Install the color cartridge, and verify that it is fully engaged.
  9. Close the color cartridge door.
  10. Connect the power cable to the printer.
  11. Wait for the printer to initialize (the paper may eject automatically).
The printer's lights turn on. And after a few seconds, most or all of the printer's lights turn off. The printer will make noises while cycling. If a paper is stuck in the printer, while the printer is making the noises, pull gently on the paper to try and remove it.

If the problem persists, call 18002356325 to send camera for repair
