About 1 try out of 10 to print is successful. In all outer tries the printer feed about 3 inch of paper into the printer then stops and send a paper jam error, but there are no paper jam the printer is clean. Is there a broken sensor or maybe something that needs to be lubricated? Anyhow I do not know what the problem is.

1. Check the paper size your printing on and whether the Same is used by printer or not
2. Try shaking the cartridges as they may have got stuck at their places for long time
3. Try legal or a4 or letter size for paper
1. Up to where paper traveled.. If its reached up to Fuser assembly & curl folds accrued under cartridge.. replace Teflon sleeve or Fuser assembly. 2. If paper traveled up to Fuser out(near 2-3 inch)...Clean/replace/flag Fuser out paper sensor 3. If paper traveled up to registration assembly:Clean registration sensors/flags. 4. Check pickup rollers.
This causes the printable area on the page to be that much less (10 3/4 or 10 1/2 on an 11 inch page). The software thinks the paper is 11 inches long and keeps track, down to the micro inch, where it is on the paper. When it reaches the 10 1/2 inches, your printer calls the page done and ejects it. However, the software thinks there is still another 1/2 inch to print (usually the footer area). Now when you insert a new sheet of paper, the software finishes printing the rest of the page (normally a blank footer) and form feeds to the next sheet.
To correct what the software thinks the paper size is, you need to run the Preferences application and change the default settings. Select the Printer button. In the next window, select the 'Change Defaults....' button. Change both the Document size and the Paper size to a height of 10.875 and click OK. Try a new document to see if the paper size is correct. You may need to go back and change the height a few times until it is correct (the height changes in .125 increments). Usually either 10.875 (for 1/4 inch forced top margin printers) or 10.75 ( for 1/2 inch forced top margin printers) will work.
1. First, clean your printer. Get some spray-n-wipe cleaner and a
clean cloth and clean the entire inside of the printer. Also ensure
your paper isn't dirty. Now print a test page. Does the symptom
persist? 2. Remove all jammed paper. Check the paper tray first. Look
closely at the paper rollers nearest where the paper exits the printer;
this is a common source of jams. If you’re trying to print labels, they
will often jam just before exiting the printer.
3. Try to print a test page. Does the printer still jam? If you
can find no source of the jamming, check the printer's message display
window and refer to your user’s manual to look up the printer error
1. Check the printer and/or the software to see if "manual
feed" is selected. If manual feed is selected, the printer may be
looking for paper in another tray. 2. Reseat paper. Ensure printer is on-line. Check for paper jams or obstructions.
3. Likely suspect: paper-out sensor is damaged or broken. Consult a computer repair shop.
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.
Hi, Sounds very much like the feed rollers are worn out. If you can get to them without too much trouble you can clean them up with regular rubbing alcohol and a rag which will help the paper feed. You might also want to try unpluging the printer and trying to roll the paper feed buttons by hand and seeing if a piece of paper will feed through without catching anywhere. If it does catch somewhere, then you may very well have a small piece of paper jammed in the paper path causing the jam. Good luck.
