The only solution for this is to dig it out

remove the paper feed cartridge, open the printer up and remove all corona wires, and anything that will slide out

look to see the feed rollers and try lifting on the rollers with your fingers to take any tension off of the top roller always try to remove the paper from the feed area slowly work the paper out if you still see small piece of paper try working them out with a stiff piece of index stock

avoid damaging the rubber rollers with a sharp object and by all means do not force the feed rollers they were designed to move in one direction..towards the copy area a pair of tweezers and hemostats work very well

the fact that the paper went in sideways lends me to believe you have a fed roller problem or an obstruction

once you clear the jam cean the feed rollers with soft cloth and alcohol



good luck

Sharp al-1631 misfeed light will not go out


This usually happens when a sensor that detected a paper jam has not reset itself after removing the paper. Make sure that when the jam was removed - all the paper came out and there is/was not a small piece missing that could have been left behind in the copier and is hiding somewhere. If you are sure the paper has all been removed then what could have happened is when the jam was being removed it could have caught on one of the paper sensors. This could pull the little flag that activates the sensor out of place - giving a false paper jam message. there are only a handfull of sensors in the paper path. remove the paper tray and make sure there is no paper stuck behind the tray or in the cavity where the tray goes. look and follow very closely the path the paper takes - look for any sensors/flags the paper would avtivate and make sure the flag moves freely and is not lopsided.
Make sure you also try unplugging and replugging the copier from the wall.
Hope this helps

Removed paper jam from 6450, but it still shows paper jam message went through the troublshooting steps, but ! is still blinking with paper jam message that says, "clear jam, press ok."


make sure you have all the paper out, sometimes there is a small piece that got stuck inside the printer. if you can not see it, you will probably have to take it to a service center. most likely its stuck where the sensor area is.
