It sounds like there is a sensor that got damaged or jammed when your paper jam occurred. Look around the inside edge of the door for a pin or clip that may pass into a hole that signals a door closed. If you can't find that look around the edge that the door touches for a contact that the door could trip. If you find either look for a damaged clip or a piece of paper that could be affecting the signal.

If you can't find either please advise me as to the manufacturer and model of your printer so I may find out what type and the location of your sensor

Thanks
Dave

Cd tray eject button doesn t work - paper clip trick doesn't help


the "paper clip trick" isn't a trick. It is a MANUAL way to open the door far enough to pull it open and remove the contents. Straighten out the clip. Place it through the tiny hole just above the eject button. Be sure to push it straight in. When you feel resistance, push HARD. the door should open about a halt inch and allow you pull it all the open. It will not open automatically from a paper clip.

Paper jam on my Lexmark Z42


So I assume the computer is coming up with this error, Do you know whether there is paper in the printer or not that is causing this error or does the printer just think there is?

The outside panels should open up and you should see some rollers which may have paper stuck in them. Check for stuck paper or any other object and simply pull it out. Pulling paper out the way it went in won't wreck the printer.

If there isn't any object, you can try resetting the printer by unplugging it and the plugging it back in.

Let me know it neither of the above suggestions work or if you just need some more help or can provide more information on this.

thanks

How do I re-set after a paper jam hp psc 1200?


Verify that the print cartridge door is closed.
The print carriage may be jammed, follow these steps to correct the problem:
1.
Open the print cartridge access door. If the print carriage can move, it should move to center. If the print carriage stays all the way left, unplug the power cord and then plug it back in. This will reset the unit and may allow the print carriage to move from the left.
2.
Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
3.
Remove both print cartridges.
4.
Move the print carriage left and right slightly to verify that the print carriage will move freely. If the print carriage will not move freely, check for obstructions.
5.
Close the print cartridge access door.
6.
Plug the power cord back in.
7.
After the all-in-one initializes, the print cartridge light will flash. Open the access door and install the print cartridges.
8.
Close the print cartridge access door. If the problem returns, remove the print cartridges and wipe the electrical contacts before reinstalling them.
*
Try to make a copy. If the all-in-one pulls in paper but cannot make a copy, there may be a problem with the scanner mechanism. Contact HP for assistance.

If that doesn't work, maybe try this too:


Clearing paper jams
Paper jams can occur for a variety of reasons but are usually paper related. Follow the steps below to clear the paper jam:

1.
Turn off the all-in-one and unplug the power cord. With the power off, the paper feed rollers will turn.
2.
Open the rear access door of the all-in-one by pressing in on the left side of the access door and then pulling it toward you.
NOTE: All paper jams must be removed by pulling the paper out the back of the all-in-one using the rear access door. Pulling the paper out the front of the all-in-one rotates the paper feed rollers in the wrong direction and can lead to additional problems.

Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door.
*
If under warranty, contact HP to obtain a replacement part.
*
Click How to buy on this page to order replacement parts.
3.
From the rear access door opening, gently pull the jammed paper free.
4.
Remove the remaining paper from the paper supply tray. Discard any paper that is damaged or crumpled and then re-stack and reload the paper into the paper supply tray.
Do not continue to push the paper in after some resistance is felt. If the paper is pushed in too far, more than one page will feed into the all-in-one at a time.
5.
Reattach the rear access door by inserting the two pins on the right of the door into the holes for them and then pressing in gently but firmly on the left side.

6.
Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on. Source(s): http://www.castleink.com

I have an all in one Lexmark 6500 Series printer I recently purchaced. I'm getting an error message to clear a paper jam and press the check between the two arrows. I have double checked the printer for...


Do the following:

Take out cartridge and put them back in place.
Unplug power cord.
Turn printer upside down and shake it a bit, to look for foreign objects such as small screws etc.
Open all printer doors and look for fragments of paper.
Close all doors and plug printer back.

If after this the printer does not clear the error it is probably faulty.

Paper Jammed. I can not take out the cartridge


Need more info. I.E. model, brand.

Im asuming a printer.

try removing the cover and pulling the paper out, you may need pliers or tweezers to do so. Unplug it first. If its a small home printer it may not come apart easily, there made to last a year and **** out.

If its a large netwrok printer it should have access hatches on the front and back, open these and check for paper and debre.

Paper Jam error with no paper jam


This is a common problem on all printers. Usually I see this happen after someone has pulled a difficult paper jam. Sometimes this can be just paper debris blocking a paper sensor. Try just cleaning the printer or blowing it out with a can of air. In most cases though, it means a broken or malfunctioning paper path sensor. If this is the case, it will need to be repaired.
