Use something small, pins for example to get the paper out of the machine and restart it.

Whats the model of your printer? brand also so I can give you better paper jam clearing instructions.

Repair of a Staples shredder EPS-1200X

Unplug it from the wall unit. Check to see if there is any tiny piece of paper stuck in the machine, if there is you can use
tweezers to pull the small pieces out. Then you can put it in reverse and let any paper that my be stuck in it come out.
Make sure that there is no paper caught in the teeth at all or it still might not work.

Ml-2160. How can I remove small pieces of paper from inside?

Generally paper is stuck either in the middle section or at the back near the fuser. Remove Toner cartridge and open rear door, if it's stuck coming out of the fuser, pull paper through from the back. Make sure to let the machine cool down first as the fuser is very hot. Remove any small pieces of paper from the front if before the fuser.

You will need to take the machine appart. There are usually access pannels for all areas that paper go through for this exact reason.

The machine keeps saying paper jam, there is no paper in there. I do not know how to clear it. I've pressed cancel numerous times.

Most likely there is a small piece of paper still stuck in the path somewhere. This happens often when you remove a jammed sheet. Sometimes a piece of it will rip off and remain stuck in the path. Try looking closely

Paper jam, removed paper but still says jammed. Is there any way to tell where the jam is or reset machine ?

You should be able to have a piece of paper feed all the way without hanging.
Most of the times, you can see a small piece of paper stuck in a corner.
I have used a cut piece of plastic ( from a file folder ) and worked small pieces out that way.
Good luck, Happy Holiday's

Reads "machine error af"

There is something wrong with the document feeder. Check if there are no pieces of paper stuck somewhere, and that any sensors are not stuck (sensors are usually small plastic pieces, that are lifted up when a sheet of paper moves below it).

I had a paper jam. I removed the paper jam already but computer says it still there. How do I reset it?

It's possible there's still a small piece of paper or dust stuck in the paper feed. Try blowing the area out with compressed air.

Small piece of paper might be stuck somewhere.

bullet_s.gif If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the machine, turn the machine off, open the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover) and remove it.
Be careful not to touch the components inside the machine.
After removing all paper, close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover), and turn it back on.
bullet_s.gif If you cannot pull the paper out, turn the machine off and turn it back on. The paper will be ejected automatically.
(2) Reload the paper in the machine, and press the OK button on the machine.
If you turned off the machine in step (1), all print jobs in queue are canceled. Reprint if necessary.

Paper Jam/Kyocera C850/C850D

There will be a piece of paper stuck in there follow the instructions again opening every door on the left side. If there is not some paper the likely thing is that the paper sensor is jammed open or the light reflector sensor is dirty or the last thing is one of the sensors are faulty.

But I know these machines very well and the sensors rarely go faulty so I'm 98% sure there will be just a small piece of paper stuck in there. (It may be between the two doors or stuck behind a guide.
