    Same problem. Dell techs advise that two major parts need to be replaced. Parts list at over $350. Tech dispatch estimated at over $150/hr. Dell will not guarantee that replacing parts will fix problem. I cleared memory and reset (MENU-CONFIGURE-MAINTENANCE-Init NVRAM) and the printer did print on the next try. It reverted back to the problem state after that and I have not had any success clearing memory again.

    Same problem! There were marks on the edge of my paper, so what do I do now if it is not picking the paper up?

The problem might be that it isn't picking up the paper. This will register as a jam if the paper does not reach the next paper sensor within a certain amount of time. check the feed assembly and check the paper to see if there are any marks on the edge from the pickup roller.

My laserjet pro 400 color mpf m475dn printer is indicating " paper back door to clear jam," please describe how i will go about this process.

There is an access door in the back of the printer. Open the door and you should see jammed paper. If not then you have a faulty sensor or switch.

The scanner won't work because it is detecting a paper jam which is not there

There was this one time that my friends printer states that there's a paper jam even though there's no paper there.

What was actually there, is just a paper with length of roughly half a centimeter and width of roughly 3mm is in the printer, stuck on something which I assumed is one of the sensors. Removed that, and no more paper jam.

Look for any traces of tiny paper shreds that might got stuck between the rollers. That might be causing the paper jam error. If you could open the back cover, check from there also as those paper shreds might also blocking the sensor.

Removed the fuser unit and also removed the left hand side panel to access the gearing mechanism.

Manually rotated the gearing a number of times thru 360 degress. This appears to have cleared whatever was causing the printer to detect a paper jam although there was no obvious sign of bits of paper or even dust build up.

Printer complains: Insert Paper fully into MPF

Pull the paper tray out and look for any obstructions in there.  Check for broken parts as well such a sensor.  Sometimes they get out of position as well.
