Re: Printer Off-line after a paper jam

Ty, Unplug the printer from the electrical source for about 2 minutes. Turn-off your computer. Turn the printer back on and then reboot the machine. If the driver wasn't corrupt it should load. You may need to uninstall the printer and then re-install it again. This site will have the latest drivers. Good Luck, Tim

What do I do when my printer is sure there is still a paper jam when I already cleared it?

There is a small plastic switch, really tiny and light, so light that a small bit of paper can depress it. This detects the presence of paper in the paper run. If it is stuck down, probably by a sliver of paper torn off when clearing a jam it can cause the printer to do as you have described.

Paper not feeding through - paper jam

You are probably putting too many pieces of paper into the tray, forcing more than one piece of paper to get sucked into the printer and jamming

My HP 2420 had a paper jam. I played around with it and must have cleared the path although I did not see any paper particles fall out. (I did have a jam and figured a small piece must have been left...

Check the following steps for fixing Hp Carriage Jam Error :

Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.

Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.

Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed paper out.

Error flashes

I've read several posts on the "red flashing error light" on the Brother HL-2170W. I have mine hooked to a mac - but I'm sure the pc is the same way. One other previous post said look for a paper jam. Well, there are only a few places to look...and I found no paper jam UNTIL I removed the toner cartridge and looked UNDER the cartridge and VOILA, there was a paper jammed underneath. I removed it and I'm back in business. Normally paper jams when it is almost out of the printer and you can locate it by opening the back of the printer. Well, this one was "sneaky" and hid completely underneath the toner cartridge.
Hope this helps someone else...

Paper jam notification after printing one page, no paper jam

try this
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. 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.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.

alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Canon PIXMA MP160 showing paper jam, but none

just recently had these problems
LED flashing E3 code and alarm light was solid. But dissapeared when opened the coved and came back on when closed the cover.
Also the when the cover was open the inks did not slide out to the left and stayed to the right side.
There was no paper jam, but error said paper jam.

1. I took a thick piece of paper, from like a paper folder ones, thick enough to go in the printer and not curl up when pushed..
2. turned off the printer and turned it back on.
3, while printer was turning on,and makings sound as it does normally when turning on, I pushed through the piece of paper and the rotors stoped for a millisecond.
4.the rotors started again and pushed out the paper by it self with out my force.
5. I let the printer get started. and then turned it off and then on.
6. this solved all of my problems.
this was the first problem ever with this printer in 3 years.,preety good printer.

good luck...
