Hi,
Try bellow steps to resolve paper jam.......

  1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
  2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
  3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
  4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
  5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

    If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
    If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
  6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
  7. Turn the printer off.
  8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
  9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.
Have any other queries.. please let me know..
Thank you....

Paper Jam......removed paper but now printer continues to only partially feed..paper stops after coming out of the paper tray and feeding up...


It is a possible roller mechanism issue. You can try to clean the rollers tho and check. You may have to open the back of the printer to reveal the rollers. Also try to use a different type of paper.

Fixing a printer paper jam
When working with any printer it's inevitable that you'll encounter a paper jam. Below are the steps you'll want to follow when this occurs.

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Inspect the location or tray the printed paper ejects to. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
  3. Remove all paper trays and any paper that may be stuck between the tray and the printer. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
  4. Open the printer door that allows you access to the printer ink cartridges or toner and look for any stuck paper. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
  5. Turn the printer back on. If you continue to receive a printer jam error try repeating the above steps again. If issue still persist and you see no paper that is stuck in the printer it's likely your printer is experiencing another hardware issues and we suggest contacting the printer manufacturer for additional assistance and/or repair.

* To manually remove paper pull on the paper with both hands being careful not to tear the paper while pulling it. If you're unable to get to an edge of the paper that allows you to pull it you may need to manually rotate the gears that feed the paper through the printer.

Preventing a printer paper jam
As mentioned earlier it is inevitable that you will encounter at least one paper jam during the life of your printer. However, if you're encountering frequent paper jams following the below steps can help prevent paper jams from occurring.

  • If your printer has a paper tray do not fill the tray to capacity. If you're encountering frequent paper jams reduce the amount of paper you place in the tray each time it is filled.
  • Make sure you or the tray feeding the paper into the printer is aligned properly and/or the slider used to hold the paper in place in the tray is snug with the paper. Many printers have sliders that allow different types and sizes of paper to be fed into the printer. If the slider is not properly positioned it can cause paper jams.
  • Use standard office paper; folded paper, paper with labels, and specialty paper such as hard bound paper can often cause paper jams. If you're uncertain with what type of paper you should use with your printer your printer documentation will list the types of paper compatible with your printer.
  • Do not mix the types of paper you're feeding into the printer at one time. If you need to change the type of paper or size of paper being used removed any other paper currently in the printer before inserting the new paper.
  • Examine the printer for any previous stuck paper in the printer. Previous paper jams, torn paper, printing labels or other foreign objects in the printer can cause reoccurring printer jams.

I cant fix the paper jam problem. every time i take the paper jam out it jams again


I have had paper jams in five different places on this machine. It has jammed at the pickup point from the tray, in which case you have to remove the paper tray and pull the jammed paper out. It has jammed at the manual paper feed tray, in which case you just have to pull the jammed paper out of the feed rollers. It has jammed at the toner/drum, in which case you have to open the front cover and pull the toner cartridge out to remove the jam. It has jammed in the back of the machine where the paper feeds through to the output tray, in which case you have to open the small back panel and remove the paper. And it has jammed in the output rollers, in which case you have to reach inside the output tray and remove the paper. Then once the jam is cleared there are times when the machine has to be unplugged for up to 8 hours to reset before it will function properly.

Paper feed jams. feeds from lower tray, turns 180 deg. then jams. Single sheet feed is fine


while keeping the paper .. ensure that it is properly stacked... fan the paper and ensure that it is not stuck to each other.. also open the printer cover and see if any paper is stuck inside..

Try to open the rear access door ,and clean the paper roller with slightly damp lint free cloth

After setting the paper type to card stock to thin card stock or special because this all I can pick the thing jams all the time.


This happens to be one of my least favorite printers.

Here is my suggestion:

Open up the cover and remove all 4 of the imaging units (with the toner cartridge). Also, remove the Fuser. While removing them, look for any bits of paper that may have gotten missed while clearing the jam.

Replace all of the items above and see if the printer still has a paper jam. It shouldn't.

Since, I assume you are manual feeding the card stock (the lower drawer doesn't allow for card stock to be used), look at the manual feed opening. There should be a small metal piece about 3" wide and less than 1/4" thick. Make sure it's attached properly. Ours unseated itself and is continuing to cause manual feed issues. This can be fixed but requires a good portion of the printer to be opened up to reseat the little metal piece.

Hope this helps.
