Also look underneath, because when I had a similar problem and everything looked clear, I took another look UNDER and found the piece of paper that was causing the prob. You miss a letter or add a space and it stuffs up the process after all really folks it's is only a machine.And very clever to boot!

Hello, I had same problem with my Pixma 600, when you lift the control panel flap to turn on the printer just below the on off button ther's a small icon of the printer with a green led at the top and one at the bottom. Press the button to the right to change either top paper feed to bottom tray feed or vice versa.Then try again, you may need to load paper in tray at bottom/front on printer.

I have a lexmark e238. Keeps showing paper jam light after cleaning rollers even though no paper is in there.


Either paper is moving too slow through the paper path or one of your paper path sensors is not registering. Pull the paper tray out and check to make sure the little plastic sensor is swinging free. That sensor tells when the tray is empty. Follow the paper path thru the printer checking all the sensors to make sure they are "opening" and "closing".

Says paper jam and there isnt!


It is possible that even though there are no full sheets of paper jamming the printer that some torn bits have been left behind. You need to make sure that cleaning is complete.

Preventing paper jams The following recommendations can help prevent recurring paper jams in your HP product.
  • Before loading paper in the tray, hold the stack of paper, and then tap the bottom edge on a flat surface so that the stack is even on all sides.
  • Make sure that the length and width adjusters on the tray are correctly positioned, and then push the stack of paper forward until it stops in the tray. CAUTION: Do not force the paper to move too far forward in the tray.
  • Do not overload the tray with paper.
  • Only add paper to the tray when the product is not printing.
  • Make sure the HP product supports the paper type. See the documentation that came with the HP product for more information.
  • Do not print on paper with paper clips or staples attached.
  • Do not use paper that is bent, torn, dusty, damp, wrinkled, curled, or paper that does not lie flat.
  • Use only one type of paper at a time. Do not mix different types, weights, or sizes of paper.
  • Do not use paper that is too thin, too thick, or too glossy for the product.
Cause The following factors can cause paper jams:
  • Paper loaded incorrectly in the paper tray.
  • Damaged or dirty paper rollers.
  • Torn, wrinkled, or damp paper loaded in the paper tray.
  • The rear access door or two-sided printing accessory (duplexer) might not be closed or is not locked into place.
  • Paper was added to a stack already in the tray while the HP product was printing.
  • The tray contains more than one type of paper.
  • The paper is jammed inside the HP product where you cannot see it.
  • An obstruction is blocking the paper path.
  • Torn pieces of paper from a previous jam are stuck in the product.
  • The tray is too full.
  • If printing on an envelope, the edges of the envelope are bent.


I hope thihs is helpful.

Paper jam


The way you describe your error, it seems that there is still some residual paper stuck inside the printer that may cause subsequent paper to be mis-aligned.

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

Top out tray full error on panel of 8550n but there in no paper in the out tray


the sensor was jammed so that even though there was no paper in the output tray the printer believed the tray was full. Fixing the jam didn't reset the printer, however, so it was necessary to reboot the printer.

The paper feed jammed allowing some print/now says empty but not


Look at the paper path very carefully. There might be a piece of paper that got torn off and is either jammed up in the fuser or the registration assembly.

Error msg: paper jam or empty paper cassette when it is full


Click on the 'feed switch' on the front control panel- it might be feeding from the invisible drawer underneath and it might be empty. There is a light which will indicate which source it is feeding from.
