Turn the printer off.
. 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.
. 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.

Good luck...

I have an epson printer and when I hit print, the paper slides right thru & says paper jam


  • Carefully remove the jammed photo paper. Gently pull the paper up and out of the paper feeder tray.

    Reload the paper into the tray. Stack the paper on a flat surface and then carefully slide the paper stack straight into the paper feeder tray---along and aligned with the right side of the tray. Secure the stack in place by sliding the left "edge guide" against the paper stack.

    Press the "OK" button to resume printing. If you had a "Paper is jammed in the printer..." error message displayed on the control panel LCD, pressing "OK" should also clear the message.

    Pull the paper from the printer, if the status message reappears and/or the printer doesn't print, and check the paper for folds, buckling and curled edges or corners. Also check the sheets for sticking. If any of your sheets stick or have damage, remove them from your photo paper stack and replace with new sheets. Reload the paper and press "OK" to try again.

    Hi my canon mx 310 is jamming all the papers sent through it goes in ok and once it hits the wheel that turns the paper it is pushing it to the right and ripping the paper


    check for paper residue at the right roller...then...

    .The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease.

    HP PSC 1610 All-In-One paper jam 1/2 sheet


    Throw this thing out as it is clearly rubbish. HP inkjet printers will **** the life and money out of you. Get a Brother HL-2170W and you will have care free printing for cheap.

    Cheers old chap.

    Printer says paper jam when there is no paper jam hit the ok button and it will print out a paer fine and then say paper jam again. repeat


    the rollers that feed the paper into the machine have a a set time limit to do so... if the rollers cann't do it in this time limit then you get a paper jam. you either need to clean the rollers with isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol ) and a rag or replace the rollers...

    Paper jam in HP 4255 office jet all in one printer


    the paper path may have some jam. It may have some solid particle or paper that's causing disturbance.
    If not the paper moving mechanism is having problem.
    Better get your printer serviced.....

    Paper wont feed then says paper jam


    Got rid of my problem!

    In an act of despair I started to poke around the inside of the printer with a wooden match. Especially I found a small black lever mentioned on a Dell web site (general paper jam help page) that could be pressed a little. It is placed just a little bit right of center behind the carriage and just above the roll that feeds the paper beneath the printer heads. I'm not sure if this was what finally did it, but now the paper jam problem has gone away.

    Another thing I noticed is that my carriage is now moving to center when I open the top. When the paper jam error was present it always moved to the far left (so I could remove any jammed paper, I suspect)

    Paper Jam


    Remove all the paper from the paper tray so that nothing gets sucked up in there while you're working. Hit the cancel button a few times until the screen clears itself and goes back to the "Print", "Copy", "Scan" option screen.

    On your computer, if the printer option screen is up (depending on what kind of computer you have, a small screen might pop up to tell you the print progress), hit cancel or clear on any of the lines that say "Paper jam", if there are any.

    The next time you print something, only put as many pieces of paper in the feed as you need to print. This should eliminate a lot of the chance of actually getting a paper jam.

    Please respond again if this didn't help. I'm not sitting in front of my own computer right now, so I might not be following the same steps that I usually take.

    Paper jam


    After changing my blank ink tank, I have the same problem. Finally discovered that it was not fully clinked in. Once it was push in till it clicked as per instructions, the printer is printing beautifully once more.
