    I tried everything I can to fix my mita dc2155,but there is still a misfeed light on the screen in the area of the feed tray. I tried to manually push through an envelope and everything (fye- there isn't a form feed button on this model)
    any further assistance would be appreciated.

    Thank you for the suggestion to try the cartridge. I have checked all the plastic tabs inside the machine and all look well... I am just trying to save myself $120.00 service charge if I can take care of it myself. I'm sure you understand... again thanks

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. (
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

Try opening and closing the machine doors.

Remove the cartridge and put it back in place.

If there is no foreign object, and no paper, and machine still does not work, then it is the sensor, and the machine must be taken apart to fix it.

    Try also sliding inside a piece of paper, and see if this unlock the sensors.

    The paper sensors are small tabs that tell the machine where the paper is, if tey get stuck you get paper jam.

...Still "paper jam". I did

This article in the Lexmark website on How to Troubleshoot a Paper Jam or Misfeed on the Lexmark P4350/P4330 Photo All-In-One will help you fix the paper jam problem. However, if problem continues, there could be some sort of foreign objects that fell into the paper feed system. Grab a flashlight and look into the feeder for any foreign objects that's in the paper path or, if you are capable and willing, carefully lift your printer upside down so the foreign object will freely roll out from the feeder.

Paper feeder stuck

If the paper feeder stuck, do the following:
  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.
  2. If paper is stuck inside, open the printer cover and remove the jammed paper, including any torn pieces. Then close the printer cover.
  3. If paper remains near the sheet feeder, press the paper feed roller lever inside the paper feeder to release the jammed paper, then carefully pull it out.
  4. Load the paper correctly.
  5. Press the cp_button_14.gif stop button to resume printing.
  • If the printer continues to jam or misfeed paper, and you are certain that there are no foreign objects lodged down inside the paper feed area, your printer may require service. Please call Epson technical support for further assistance.

    Phaser 7300 jamming manual feed

    Can you print fine with no jams from the lower tray?
    make sure you have clean new paper and start out with the 11"x8.5' letter paper. If you have that then follow the instructions below.

    1. Make sure there is no peaces of paper jammed in the path.
    2. clean the rollers with regular rubbing alcohol sometimes the rollers get way dirty to pick up the paper.
    3. If none of these tricks helped you then you have to change the the manuel feeder. part # 116-1561-00 good luck.

    My workcentre Pro 416 shows a jam, i have removed all jams that i could see. However it shows clear jam, and has 19 to dos on the screen, like open door, clean jam, close door, etc.. Is there a major reset...

    On this 416 machine, there is one place you cannot see a jam.
    Looking at the machine the right side doors need to be opened.
    The lower trays feed paper and need to go up the by pass feeder area.
    Just lower and behind the by-pass feeder the paper can get stuck, and you cannot see it.
    If you try to push a card stock up from the bottom, the paper can be pushed out.
    The other area is at the fuser. If the switch is worn it will not drop back into position. The tip of the switch wears and breaks off.
    It is rare a sensor goes out on this machine, besides the fuser sensor. Each paper feed head needs to be checked to see if the paper sensors are bad.
    Not seeing the machine, call Xerox for service repair if not resolved.

    Copier says paper jam in area 2, no jam

    What is the model number of the copier? That would help a lot in knowing what to tell you. The paper feeders are all different. but I suspect bad rollers or sleeves.

    Misfeed on lanier 7320

    I like your pictures.... Have you tried to clean the feed roller with a slittly damp rag with Simple Green or WD-40? You can try that and wipe the extra off. They both clean the rubber roller's. If that works good, that means the feed rollers are worn and need replacing. But you may also need the paper pick-up feed clutch. You said you can still run paper throw the by-pass. Good Luck

    Paper Misfeed Problem

    When you close the doors does the message disappear? If so then the paper pickup roller is worn. Open the cassette remove all paper apart from one sheet. Spray a alcohol based cleaned on the leading edge of the paper. Try and do a copy this will issue a jam and also clean the pickup roller. repeat a few times then clean out the cassette and dry off place new paper in the cassette and try. Also there maybe a piece of paper behind the cassette. Remove cassette and reach in and remove paper lodged at back.

    Thanks Jason

    Misfeed on lanier 7320

    Sounds like a dirty sensor or a small piece of paper stuck. Check the feeder, left side, underneath. There should be a switch actuator
    in the paper path that is visible. Also, on the right side, check all of the openings for anything stuck. If you have no luck, get some canned air and blow out everything. If its still jammed, it can be easily unplugged in the back of the machine, and the machine section will still operate.
