Question about Samsung SCX-4216F All-In-One Laser Printer

Samsung SCX-4216F Paper Jam 01

We're getting "Paper Jam 01" error message, but no jammed paper in evidence. The printer isn't able to pick up paper from the bottom paper tray. It makes grinding noise. Is still able to feed paper through the manual paper feed.
Any idea what's going on?
Thanks!

    Thanks - I tried cleaning it and still no success. The paper just isn't getting picked up.

    I realized through experimentation that the grinding noise must be caused by that rubber piece that flips over (next to the black thing you press to fool the printer). When it gets pressed the wrong way it makes that grinding noise.

  • volunteernab Dec 09, 2008

    Tried the cleaning option... still having trouble. I can definitely still print through manual feed, but when i try to print from the tray it's stopped making the grinding noise, it just doesn't pick up the paper.

    I realized I mis-read the little screen it wasn't paper jam 01 it was Paper Jam 0] (zero and then a close bracket).

    Sorry for being a ludite- but what's an ADF?

  • volunteernab Dec 10, 2008

    We tapped away and no cigar.
    We might have to call in a service technician at this point.
    Is there anything else I can do aiside from cleaning,tapping, taking out trays and toner and looking for misplaced bits?
    Thannks.

I think that the paper feed cog/grab mechanism is broken, but you can try this>>>>>>>>> remove power from the printer, go to the PC and unistall the software, reboot the pc and power up the printer (leave the USB cable out) reinstall the printers software and connect the USB realign the cartridges and hopefully you will be able to print a test page.
If the printer still doesn't grab the paper your looking at a new one

kind regards

    you have tried all troubleshooting possibilities with regards to sorting the problem yourself and you are now out of options.
    You will probably have no choice but call a service technician now
    If it was a home printer you could have replaced it cheaply but because its an office printer a technician is required

    kind regards

The gears which pulls the paper are misallighned and now able to pick up the paper. ------------------------------ or the gears r being blocked due to any dust thaT U said u tried cleaning. -------------------------------------- or it could also happen if the gears are slightly cracked in between so they r not able to spin fluently as they should be. ------------------------------------------------ or the paper pick up sensor is not working or moved from its orignal position,tap the printer up side down and also tap from all its sides. do it carefully and slowly.or call a tech nician at your place to get the new gear assembly fitted.

Clean the Feed Roller In the middle of the printer. Take the paper tray out- you will see the roller in the middle. Send a print job with paper tray removed. Press the black thing to fool the printer that it has paper. You will see the feed roller move. When it is in the position you want to clean- open the toner door and it will stop moving so you can clean it. Isopropyl alcohol and LINT FREE CLOG.

Printer says jammed , cleared printer completely, still says jammed , no evidence of jam,disconnected printer, reconnected, ,still says jammed,


The possible reasons for this could be
  1. (For Laser Printers Only) Toner sediment in the fuser unit. This specially occurs if you constantly use smaller paper sizes than the paper tray size. To resolve this you should disassemble the printer, take out the fuser unit and clean the toner sediment. The sediment can get rock solid so clean it carefully. If you are not accustomed with electronic components better visit a technician.
  2. The paper sensors pulling spring may be detached. In this case the sensor gets a message that some paper exists in the fuser unit so a paper jam message is triggered. Fix the spring and you are done.

Says Paper Jam but ther is no paper jam


It appear from here that the exit sensor may be dirty and you can use canned air and blow it out.

You may also be missing the paper out sensor that is located at the bottom of the printer oposite of the paper tray when you pull it out. When the flag arm has fallin out, it will give a false paper jam error when the last sheet has printed from the tray, not knowing or detecting that the tray is now empty.

Hi I get this 250.07 paper jam check mp feeder on Lexmark t644


Please 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.

Error message keeps appearing "paper jam in tray 2" although there is definitely no paper jam.


If you did not get ALL the jammed sheet out, there is still a small piece of paper in there somewhere, probably covering a sensor or micro switch. Get a torch and look carefully. If you don't find anything you may need to disassemble the printer to find it.

Paper transport does not work; terrible grinding noise


I took mine apart from the back and put it back together and it worked. It is probably due to moving it and the bottom paper tray alignment gets out of whack. I inspected all of the gear train and didn't find any worn or missing teeth. I suspect a paper jam started it and the user turned the printer around to open the back door. Since the handles are on the printer the tray doesn't move with it which allows it to separate and possibly jam a pickup drive gear.

Doesn't Print - Says "Paper Jam"


That is the problem, machine will show printer jam if paper feed rollers fail to pick up paper when requested, your machine sounds like it needs new paper feed roller or you can clean the paper feed roller with a slightly! damp cloth.

If no jam light shows when power is turn on and machine comes to ready and then you send a job to printer and it then shows jam then it is the feed roller or sometimes the feed clutch

If on the other hand it always show jam then there is or a switch is stuck.

Paper Jam Error Message


I would try to clean the tires with alcohol, it's probably trying to pick up the other sheet but is slipping.

take out the tray and look inside for the pick-up and seperation tires.

Paper Jam at 2


Its probably not picking up paper from that tray, thus the jam error. For me that is typically because the tray isn?t pushing the paper up high enough to be caught by the pickup roller or the pickup rubber band is worn.
