First off, unless you know that the paper is there, it's a possibility your machine is just saying or acting as if there is a jam when actually there is something giving a false reading or a failed part rendering it unable to print. Otherwise, if you happen to know where there paper is jammed at, attempt forcing a heavier stock paper through. say the jam is between two rollers attempt pushing a cardstock or index card thickness of stock through the rollers to attempt pushing the paper backward which might either remove the jam and make it removeable elsewhere, or make it so the machine can try to feed the paper through again this time allowing you to reach it.

My epson stylus states jam paper there is no paper in it?


It might help to know the model of your printer. Even small pieces of paper or even dust can trigger a "paper jam" indication. I've used compressed air cans to blow out the paper path.

A bad jam that you have cleared can also bend/move paper sensors so they don't register the paper anymore. You can check for that. Does paper travel through the printer if you press the paper-feed button?

Flashing light indicating there is a paper jam but NO paper jamming the printer.


There is more than likely a small, or small pieces of paper jammed somewhere within the unit. open up all covers and take a good thorough look with a flash light. even the smallest piece can trigger this error.

Why does the data light blink then paper jam light goes on even with no paper in it


Most likely when you removed the paper jam a small piece of paper got jammed under one of the sensors. This is a very common problem. It is also possible depending on the model that you have dislodged one of the flags that activates sensors for paper travel. Check the back of the printer in the fuser area as these are the most commonly damaged sensors.

It says paper jam remove toner but there is no paper jam at all


Try power cycling the printer. Otherwise there is a paper jam or a sensor is dirty. Every time I hear someone say there is no paper jam I almost always find one. Use a flashlight they can be very very small.

Troubleshooting paper jam


You probably have a small piece of torn paper jammed right up against the paper jam sensor. You'll need to open it up and check the entire paper path for it. Even a small piece of paper can trip the sensor if it's in the right place. If you can't get at the entire paper path, you may need to take the printer to a qualified computer repair shop and have it done. Most shops won't charge you a lot for this job, and it can usually be done while you wait.

The orange down arrow light keeps blinking. what's wrong?


This means that either the printer is out of paper or there is a paper jam.

Try to check all feeds for a paper jam. Once the jam is cleared your printer should resume printing again.

Sometimes even a small peice of paper can cause the printer jam

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.

Printer problem


even a very small piece of paper (A small piece torn off a jammed sheet) can cause the sensor arm to stick in place giving a false paper jam. Double check the entire paper path (what is visible) using a flashlight.
Also, check for broken "flag" sensors. Basically a flag sensor is a small piece of plastic that is pushed out of the way when the paper is traveling through the unit. If one of these flags is broken it may display a paper jam error as well (The flag after paper travels through will drop back into the paper path.) If this is broken it will not trigger the sensor and thus the error condition exists..
Most likely you have a small piece of paper stuck inside the paper path somewhere.
Do not, I repeat do not use any sharp or pointed metal objects to remove any small paper from within the fuser unit, the fuser covers are very delicate and such poking and prodding will likely damage the fuser covers, causing bad print quality or drastically decrease the fuser life (a small tear will quickly render the fuser useless).
Hope this helps!

Paper jam even when there is no paper in the printer


I had same problem. Have you checked for paper-jam from the back, as sometimes a small piece of paper may be still jammed in. Pull open the door and check. Do not pull jammed paper from the front as this disturbs the rollers and printing process. I di this, and have had to buy a new printer.!!
