Embedded paper jam!

Help! I have a paper jam, paper is stuck tight as a drum. I cannot see anywhere to free it. I opened whatever can be opened, but there seems to be no access.

    I found the solution myself. The Brother Laser HL 2040 install disk has a pdf of the user manual. It gives several ways to solve a paper jam. I did this: remove the ink drum (carefully) and the paper pulls out with it.

It wont print, says paper jam, yet there is no paper stuck anywhere? any suggestions?


Hi!

Try removing the cartridges and drum and clean the big grey roller as this picks up paper and if not it will show a paper jam without paper being in the machine!

Good Luck!

My printer mp145 with error e23, please help?? help....


From looking around online, it appears that E23 is a paper feed error. Do you have jammed paper anywhere inside the printer? Open all of the covers and doors, remove the toner cartridge and paper trays, and try to find the paper that it sees. If you close everything up and the printer still shows the E23 message, turn it off and turn it back on to see if it clears.

Paper jam message no paper jam cartridge gets stuck HP 6310 all in one


Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

Paper Jam light is on and there's no jam anywhere. What do you do?


A paper jam notification can be caused by two things. One a hard jam, paper stuck.

Two, If the paper does not reach a flag or sensor on time, the printer knows that a jam has occurred.

Most likely, you had a paper pick problem caused by dirty rollers or maybe the paper is held to tightly by the paper tray. Also a static charge on the paper can sometimes cause sheets of paper to stick together.

Printer indicates paper jam every few pages, but there is no paper anywhere in the paper path. If I open the top cover and close it, it will print a few more pages, then indicate another paper jam

Alledged Paper Jam


Check underneath the toner/drums for the paper.

Document jam


There is most likely a very small piece of paper in the document feeder.
What you can do is take a minella folder or some card stock, open the document feeder cover and shove the folder or card stock through the feeder to dislodge whatever is stuck in there.
The document sensor itself may be knocked out of position.
It can't be the copy paper path since you can print.

More than likely you have bad feed tires in the tray you're pulling from or if the drum unit is stuck there probably is paper jammed up in the unit.  Replace you feed tires and check your drum separation claws when you are able to get the drum unit out.

OKI c5150n I get an error that the printer cannot detect the C drum unit.


It sounds like a defective drum unit. Also make sure you are using genuine oki supplies.
