You may also have a problem with the paper feed (clutch, dirty feed/pick up tires) section, or even a dirty sensor as Jay mentioned. A sensor in modern office equipment is generally a photo sensor, which means it shoots light from one side to be detected on the other side of it. If it's dirty, it will give you a flase reading. Try cleaning the tires that pick up the paer from the tray (don't force them down if they won't rotate easily) with mild soap and water on a rag, and also try fresh paper. Sometimes if paper has been sitting for a while, or in damp conditions, it will pick up moisture and give you paper feed problems... which is what it sounds like you are having. Sounds like the paper may need even be making it to the sensor in the 1st place if it on comes out of the tray 1/2 an inch. Good luck

Clean the rollers, but also check the drum/toner. at the front there is a peice that breaks on occasion that will cause a jam.

SOURCE: Paper jam in Panasonic KX-

Your document feed is separate from your received and report prints so that's why your reports are printing ok and the document feeder jams. When you open up the doc feeder and look inside the machine you will see a roller and above it on the cover that opens you will see a rubber pad. Clean both the roller and pad (in fact anything in there that is rubber) with a rubber cleaner, alcohol, or even soap and water on a cloth without it been dripping wet. You will probablt find that they are very dirty. The roller feeds the document in so that needs to be clean and the pad helps to keep all the other docs from feeding in at the same time and that should be very clean so it produces good friction.

Printer is in alarm mode stating a paper jam when there isn't one?????


Even though u cant see a jam there there is exactly a jam inside
U believe it or not thats why paper jam
Look for the paper detection sensor below the carriage
use ur common sense
I cant say exactly it is detect sensor it may be some other sensor related to gear wheel set
but most of the cases paper jam occurs due to malfunction of paper detect sensor
If u find it use a thin tool to see it is working properly
otherwise give it to someone know how to repair & pay a reasonable price
thx

Paper jam


My dp85f, jams also.

The reason is, that the "fuser and pressure roller" unit is clamping an thus, the gearwheel driving this unit has been damaged.

Anyone knows, where to get spare parts?

I had the same problem- jam error with no paper in it. I tried all of the suggestions to no avail. So as a last resort before I went and purchased another one I unplugged it, picked it up, turned it upside down and whacked it a few times. To my surprise when I plugged it back up it worked just fine! Haven"t had any problem since. I don"t reccomend this but as a last resort, what the heck!
