Printer gives mesasage of jammed paper and will not print

Hi Pedro,
This means the printing paper maybe stuck.
  • Turn the printer off and on.This sometimes clears jam automatically.In case it doesn't:-
  • You need to gently pull the paper out from the rear tray or from the output slot.
  • In case it tears,turn the printer off and open the printhead cover and remove the papers carefully not to touch anything inside.Close the cover.
  • Load printing papers again and press RESUME on the printer to print queued print jobs.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

Hi, Sirs; My name is Heiman, Today I have one question want to request you that, I can not push to stop the button of paper jam in appear a flashing error on the printer. And also when I want to print...

Paper jam means a paper has got stuck up on your printer. open the printer and see if you can carefully pull the paper that has got stuck up in the printer out. after that try fixing the papers correctly in it right positions. or don't load much papers again. if you know you want to print only a page of work, then try putting on one paper inside.
I hope this works for you.

Says there is a paper jam and to open top cover but I do not see a paper jam there. I took out the toner cassette but do not see the paper jam.

When your reports paper jam for any reason, whether there is paper jam or not, most times you need to go thruogh paper jam clearing procedure to have your printer printing again. So please follow the procedure below:-

Clearing paper jam in a printer is simple almost seven step procedure depending on the printer. Paper jam is the term used to refer to the scenario where your paper fails to come out of the printer during the print process. When you send a document to the printer, normally the printer prints out the document on a paper; then you can pick up your printed copy. When the paper gets stuck in the printer, it is said that paper has jammed in the printer "paper jam".

Even if you are not a technical person, you can conveniently clear paper jams. All you need is to follow the set of procedures outlined below.

Put off the printer and unplug it from its power source.

Open all the covers/shutters on the printer (usually you will find one in the front or top and one at the back of the printer).

(If the printer is a DeskJet, otherwise ignore this step) Now pull out the cartridge carefully and place it on safe surface. (Be careful not to place it where it may slide and fall. This could damage the cartridge)

Site the paper that has jammed and pull it out in the opposite direction of its movement. Do not pull in the direction it was coming out. (Pulling the paper in the opposite direction is important for the printer's mechanism. Printer must be off). Never pull out paper from a printer when the printer is powered on.

(If the printer is a DeskJet, otherwise ignore this step) Return the cartridge gently and press it firmly inside so that you here it snap inside.

Close all covers at the top, front or back.

Power on your printer and you should be able to print again.

Good luck and God bless!

I have a brother_mfc_9840cdw_laser_printer and get a message of No Paper reload Paper in tray, and I have taken out the tray multiple times and placed paper in, I am at a loss of what to do please help

IS the application you are printing from choosing the correct tray? That printer has multiple trays correct? If so try putting paper in another tray and seeing if it prints. If so you have the wrong tray selected when you print from your app. Also pull out all the trays and make sure you do not have a paper jam that you can not see. Sometimes paper jams will display as out of paper messages

Hi, there is continous paper jam flashing light indicated at the printer (epson 600). i have checked but i found nothing jammed. i wounder i could be the reason. your support is...

Sorry - no solution, except to perhaps agree with the guy who says throw it out the window. I only wish I wasn't just on the first floor. This thing does more jamming than printing. It claims a jam when there is none. Infuriating.

Hi my printer jammed at the beginning feed, and eventhough I cleared the paper, now each time I try to print the same jam happens. Anything I can try other than bringing it to a service center ?

Carefully inspect the paper path and find what stops the paper from moving. Sometimes there is a piece of paper, paperclip or staple stuck in the paper up turn. Usually the paper is wrinkled on that place after removal.
Try manual feed (yes, there is manual feed tray behind that narrow long door in front between the paper tray and the toner access door)
Clean the pickup roller. If it's worn out, try to remove it (there are plastic latches that hold it on place) and turn the rubber part in a way that non worn area covers the protruding part.

Seems to have frozen after removing a paper jam

Please explain: when you push the ON/OFF button:
1) the green light will go on and remain on or
2) it will blink and go off after a short time ?
In case 2), remove the rear door and put it again in place correctly (make sure it is well seated in place).
If the door is not installed correctly, the printer will refuse to switch on.

Paper Jam Error

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.

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.
