Please explain: when you push the ON/OFF button:
1) the green light will go on and remain on or
2) it will blink and go off after a short time ?
In case 2), remove the rear door and put it again in place correctly (make sure it is well seated in place).
If the door is not installed correctly, the printer will refuse to switch on.

Our printer is not picking up the paper from the tray and is saying it is jammed. There is not jam.


Hi there !

Is your printer had jammed before and it stop printing in the middle of printing? For some reasons, paper can jammed due to printing interruptions, printer turn off, improper loading or feeding of paper, roller feeder had problem and others.

If jams before and paper have let inside the printer, please do the following first:

1. Check th paper tray, see inside if the paper is jammed inside that compartment. If there is paper jammed, remove, turn off your printer and turn on. This will solve your problem.

2. If not, open the printer cartridge door, remove the toner cartridge and look for paper jammed inside. If these is paper inside, remove it, turn off the printer and turn it on.

3. If you cannot see the paper jammed inside, the paper maybe inside the heating area. To remove paper, just turn off your printer and turn it on to roll over the paper jammed inside of it.

4. If the printer is blinking and saying there is paper jammed. You have to check the cartridge toner by opening the cartridge door, remove the cartridge and return it back but be sure it is well firmly fitted.

If following the 4 diagnostic procedure and you cannot locate the jammed paper, the problem lies on the toner cartridge itself. When toner cartridge is not rolling over, it will stop feeding the paper and it will cause printer to jammed.

To diagnose the problem, put old printer cartridge and if no toner power, just shake it well and I am sure there is still small amount of powder inside it and if it prints, the toner cartridge you purchase is defective. Reason, factory defect or improper refilling and part is not working well.

I hope it is helpful and thank you for using FixYa !

Paper jam


Hi Good day!! Follow this method to remove your paper jam:

1. Check to make sure that the power cord is securely plugged into an active wall outlet if your printer is not turning on.

2. Make sure that the USB cable connecting your computer to your printer is securely connected if your printer powers on but will not perform a print job.

3. Remove a paper jam if the "Check Paper" light on the front of the printer is blinking. To do this, first turn off the printer and unplug the power cord from the printer. Open the front cartridge door and locate the jammed paper. Gently pull the jammed paper toward you. Plug the printer back in and turn it back on.

4. Connect your printer to a different USB port on your computer if you are experiencing slow printing. The slowness could be due to a connection problem with your computer's USB port. After you've switched the port, try your print job again.

5. Make sure that a phone line is securely connected from a phone jack to your printer if you are having trouble sending or receiving faxes.

6. Clean the scanner surface if your scans are blurry or have vertical white or black lines. To do this, spray the a soft, lint-free cloth with a mild glass cleaner. Wipe the scanner glass with the cloth and then dry it with another clean lint-free cloth.

7. Hard reset the printer if you are having trouble solving your problem. Turn the printer off and remove the power cord from the wall outlet. Wait at least 15 seconds and plug the cord back in. Power the printer on and try your job again.

8. Restart your computer if you can't solve your printing or scanning job. Sometimes restarting the computer can solve an unseen problem.

Paper twisted while entering printer rollers and is jammed. How can I get it out?


Try to turn off the printer, open the compartment and check the roller. try to pull the paper and at the same time flip the roller in such a way that the paper will move out. If it is jammed and crumpled like what I exactly experienced earlier, remove the paper as fast as you can.

Turn on the printer, wait for the inkjet devices in a neutral position. Then insert the paper and start printing again. If it didn't work, try to hold the tip of the paper in horizontal manner while printing and make sure you remove the entire paper before the next page prints itself...

Some of the Ink Jets have a cover in the back of the printer that you have to turn a lock to remove and you could have some paper stuck back there.
