Reacuring "Clear Paper Jam" error on Canon FAX L240

The machine worked fine for a long time when it just got a paper jam when the paper was exiting the fuser unit. I cleared the jam but the error remained. I unplugged the machine and after a while I plugged it back in. The error was cleared. But the first page I printed again did the same. I opened the fuser unit but could find no obstructions and the fuser exit sensor arm is working perfectly.I tested the machine again and it did the same. But now not even a power cycle will clear the error any more. Mite there be anything I'm missing or something ells that could cause the problem? Thank you for your time

SOURCE: 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...

SOURCE: False Paper Jam

Hello,

 

My name is Vikram Kumar Thumu, from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to Paper Jam error messages even though there is no paper jam in printer . I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue. I hope that this should work for you and will resolve the issue.

 

This issue could happen if there is an issue with any small paper jam in the Printer, or due to the communicational issue .

 

To isolate the issue, I recommend you to perform below steps.

 

Steps are:

--------------

 

1. Power OFF printer and then please Disconnect the Printer from Computer and then disconnect the Power cable of Printer from wall outlet.

 

2. Check thoroughly in Printer that there is no small piece of paper in the Printer.

 

3. Let the Printer be disconnected and idle for 5 minutes.

 

Meanwhile please perform further steps on Computer.

 

  Note: The below steps are applicable if you are using WINDOWS 2000/XP/VIsta Operating system in  your PC

 

  Steps are:

--------------------

 Perform the below steps to restart the print spooler :

1. Click Start>Run

2. Type services.msc

3. Click OK

4. A Window will pop up with so many services listed.

5. Scroll down to locate "print spooler" in the list, right click on it and click "Restart"

6. Restart the Computer.

 

Once if you are done with steps, please connect the Printer and then Power ON Printer and check the issue.

 

This should resolve the issue for you.

 

 If you need any further assistance on the issue, you can mail me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com . I'll be glad to help you.

 

Bye.

SOURCE: "Clear paper jam" error, but there is no jam!

Thanks, tried all the maintenance options including cleaning the rollers. What I have found worked very well was to bin the printer and purchase an HP model!

Our Canon jx210p fax keeps saying "chk printer


CHK PRINTER 5100 / SEE MANUAL
Cause Action Movement of the Holder is blocked. Clear the paper jam or foreign object that is preventing the Holder from moving, then turn off the machine and turn it back on again. There may be an obstruction that is not allowing the Holder mechanism to move. Check for any obstruction (paper clip, small object, etc.) and also that the protective tape are removed from the FINE Cartridge. Check also for a paper jam and clear the jam if necessary . Then press [Stop/Reset] and start again. The FINE Cartridge may be defective. Press [Stop/Reset]. Reinstall the FINE Cartridge (see Prepare the Machine ) and start again.In either case, if the error does not clear, try unplugging the fax. Wait several minutes, then plug it back in. Also, try replacing the FINE Cartridge with a new one. An error requiring servicing might have occurred. Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply. After a while, plug the power cord of the machine back in and turn on the machine. If the same error occurs, contact the service center.

Display ... ''clear paper jam''


First clear the possible paper jam using a air blower on the rollers and sensors most possible cause is the paper dust which block the sensors. then do a power cycle by unplugging the cable and leave it turned off for 5 mins and then reconnect, it should take care of the issue.

I have an Intellifax 2820 and there is an error message of paper jam inside... I have cleaned all paper out of machine... please help me


A jam sensor may be stuck by a paper scrap. Try manually pushing a sheet of paper through the machine IN THE DIRECTION IT IS NORMALLY FED. This may force out any stuck scraps. The jam sensors are usually located where the paper feeds and where it exits the machine. Also, make sure ALL ACCESS PANELS YOU OPENED TO CLEAR JAMS ARE CLOSED PROPERLY. Otherwise, the jam code will not clear.

LCD Error message: Paper output slot. Thye paper is jammed. clear the paper and press OK.


A jam sensor may be stuck or have something stuck on it, causing the machine to think it is jammed. These sensors are normally located where the paper feeds into the printer, and where the paper exits the printer. Try forcing a sheet of paper through the machine in the direction paper normally. feeds. This may free up the jam sensors.

Clearing an error


well, one of two things have happened, 1. you haven't removed all of the jammed paper, maybe you left a small piece of a piece of paper or you may bent or broken your paper jam sensor. go through the paper path very carefully and check both things.
