Try this

  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.

I have a lexmark e238. Keeps showing paper jam light after cleaning rollers even though no paper is in there.


Either paper is moving too slow through the paper path or one of your paper path sensors is not registering. Pull the paper tray out and check to make sure the little plastic sensor is swinging free. That sensor tells when the tray is empty. Follow the paper path thru the printer checking all the sensors to make sure they are "opening" and "closing".

If paper is jammed, a Paper jam message will appear on the control panel display.

Follow these steps to clear the jam:

  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out of the output tray or sheet feeder.

  2. If the paper is stuck inside, turn off the Epson Stylus CX.

  3. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the Epson Stylus CX back on.

    alert_note.gif Note: Be sure to check the far left of the carriage area when checking for jammed paper. Paper that is jammed there may be hidden from view.
If paper jams inside the Automatic Document Feeder, clear the jam as follows:

  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover and remove any jammed paper.

Printer jammed. I cleared the jam but it


You most likely have a tiny piece of paper stuck in the paper path that cannot be seen unless taken apart. Depending on the type of printer... remove the paper tray and the back cover and look for any small shred of paper. If you still see nothing, a local repair shop would be your best option.

I have a serious paper jam that can't be cleared the normal way. I removed the ink cartridge but the paper jam was hidden under a roller that I couldn't get at.


Short of taking it apart, you can usually remove the cartridge and start turning the gears that are visible to move the paper path rollers. (They are hard to turn though...) Make sure you've undone all the paper path clearing doors, hinges, etc. Good luck.

Paper jams at every feed - even after I clear the jam...


Make sure all paper has been removed from the paper path.
Even a small scrap will cause a jam.
The other thing you may want to do is clean the paper rollers with alcohol.
This cleans any paper dust that has gathered on the rollers, and allows better paper movement.

When powering up printer receive message "press power then clear paper jam" I cannot find any paper jammed in the printer


Power your printer off and unplug it. Try manually feeding a sheet of heavy weight paper (cardstock) through the paper path to help push out any torn scraps of paper left from a previous jam, or any staples or paper clips etc that may have fallen into the paper path.You may need to do this multiple times. You can also try blowing in canned air to remove and paper dust that might be laying on the sensors causing a false jam message. Good luck!

Printer keeps getting jammed no matter what


clean all sensors and make sure you have good dry stock to run through it like a heavy 28 lb paper. also check the path of the paper and see where it stops it might be at the paper tray pickup or even the fuser. try running the machin with the covers open by jamming something into the cover sensor and see where the paper stops at.

Clear Paper Jam error -- but there is no paper jam!


Sometimes while clearing the jam (if there was one) you may leave a bit of paper left behind which obscures a sensor causing it to think there is paper still in the paper path, or sometimes even paper dust can do it. Try a bottle of compressed air and blow the path out very well. Get a bright light (good flashlight) and very throroughly eyeball the paper path for any "foreign" objects...
