Was there a paper jam just prior to this problem occurring? If so, look for any small pieces of paper that might be causing a jam. This may take a flashlight, and a close inspection of the entire paper path. This type of error generally occurs when the paper path is being blocked, or the paper can not move to the proper registration point ( ready position ) in the printer.

How do I clean toner from machine?


Probably it's the jammed paper that might caused the error. I suggest have it serviced by the technician. Be aware of the paper handling capacity of your machine to minimize jamming:

Cannot remove the paper jam


To clear the message Paper Jam from the display, follow the steps listed below:

NOTE: images shown below are from a representative product and may differ from your Brother machine.


STEP A. Check for and remove any jammed paper or foreign objects in the machine

  1. Unplug the Brother machine from the power outlet.


    Caution Before you unplug the machine from the power source, you can transfer your faxes that are stored in the memory to your PC or another fax machine so you will not lose any important messages. Refer to the Related FAQs in the end of the page for information. (only for applicable models)

  2. Lift the scanner cover using the plastic tabs or finger holds, located on the left and right side of the machine until it locks securely into the open position.


    jam_coveropen.gif

    Caution DO NOT touch the encoder strip. The encoder strip is a clear plastic strip in front of the white vinyl band (outlined in red as shown in the picture below). If the encoder gets markings or debris on its surface, it may cause other problems.

    20090511_02.gif






  3. Verify the location of the print head. The print head is a black square object, located behind the encoder strip. The print head moves from left to right.




  4. Move the print head to the middle using your fingers.


    Caution DO NOT touch the encoder strip (marked in red shown below).
    20090511_04.gif

  5. Check for and remove any ripped paper or a foreign object in the left corners or underneath the print head.


    Hint The ripped paper may be very small. Using a flashlight will help you to find the ripped paper.

  6. Turn the machine around and open the Jam Clear Cover (1). Look inside the machine and remove any jammed paper.

    jam03.gif

  7. Close the Jam Clear Cover. Make sure the cover is closed properly.


    jam05.gif

  8. After removing all of the paper scraps, Close the scanner cover by lifting the scanner cover to release the lock. Gently push the green scanner cover support down and then close the cover.

    jam_paper_scrap_stuck.jpg

  14. Using a pair of tweezers, the paper scrap can be easily removed from the exit rollers.

  15. Place the machine gently down onto the surface.

    • If paper scraps were found and removed from the machine, continue to STEP 16.


  16. Put the paper tray back into the machine.

Machine diplays "paper jammed" with no paper in


Hello
This the method to clear paper jam, follow these steps:-
Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.
Turn off the printer.
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the ink cartridge. 5 If necessary, remove the ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though.
Replace the ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
Good Luck

Paper jam in fax how do I clear?


folow the instruction
1
Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge to fade away before putting your hands or metal tools inside the chassis.
  • Step 2 Pin down the exact location of the jam. The three hot spots for a jam are the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and the print carriage, or between the print carriage and the output tray.
  • Step 3 Take off the front paper tray if the sheet got stuck while it was still in the front area of the printer. If the sheet jammed here, you should be able to see most of the paper.
  • Step 4 Pull on the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a chunk of it deeper in the machine.
  • Step 5 Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed tray area and the print carriage of the all-in-one printer. Carefully remove the jammed paper from the machine.
  • Step 6 Use the carriage access door to reach a jam further inside the all-in-one printer. You may need to move the print carriage out of your way to clear the jam.
  • Step 7 Return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

    My Canon MP530 indicates that I have a paper jam. There is no paper jam - I have checked and re-checked and turned it off and on several times and it is still reading that there is a paper jam. How do I...


    Hello there You may not see a paper jam.
    This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

    First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

    If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

    And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

    Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

    That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
    It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

    So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


    Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

    It say paper jam and ther is no paper jam


    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

    Canon Pixma MP160 shows errors E3 and won't print


    Hi there,

    Error E3 : Check if the paper has jammed in the machine, reload the paper in the machine correctly and then press [Black] or [Color].

    Paper Jams :
    Cause : Paper jams in the paper output slot/ Auto Sheet Feeder.
    Landscape Credit Card sized paper jams inside the machine.

    Action : Remove the paper according to the following procedure.
    1) Slowly pull the paper out, either from the Auto Sheet Feeder or from the paper output slot, whichever is easier.
    * If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the machine, open the Scanning Unit and remove it. Be careful not to touch the components inside the machine at this time. After removing the paper, close the Scanning Unit, turn the machine OFF and turn it back ON.
    * If you cannot pull the paper out, turn the machine OFF and turn it back ON. The paper will eject automatically.

    2) Reload the paper into the machine and press [Black] or [Color].
    * If you have turned OFF the machine in step , you will need to retry printing, because this operation cancels any print jobs in progress.

    If you cannot remove the paper or the paper tears inside the machine, or if the paper jam error continues after removing the paper, contact a Canon service representative.
    Important : You cannot load Credit Card sized paper in the landscape orientation.

    Hope this helps.
    Have a good day.

    Message unable to print 50


    Machine Error 50 either means that there is a loose object inside the machine (usually piece of paper), or that there is a mechanical error which would need you to have the machine sent to service.
