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.

Take out paper tray. Stick hand in and rotate mechanism on top back where paper feeds in. It always gets stuck. Fixes our printer every time.

I had a paper jam in the back and I'm afraid I jerked the paper out - now I get paper jam message and it won't pick up paper.

You will need to open the printer and where the wheel is to grab the paper look in both corner ans there maybe a piece of paper stuck in it. Even if you open the doors to check it;s hard to see the edges of the roller

I have a Dell 3000cn and it won't print due to the problem "Paper Jam Open Reg Cover." I have tried looking for a lodged paper inside the printer, and trying to let the roller read the paper. Any...

I've got the same problem.
The problem is probably due to a lose or defective sensor.
Open the back cover. In the middle you can see now a sensor (2 small glass "eyes". It is possible that this sensor has lost connection (white plastic holder). The way to access this is to open the imaging drum cover, remove the drum and reach all the way down inside.
So far my theory. I can not reach it and have little hope. Never again a Dell :-( .

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.

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.

Paper not feeding

The Dell 3000cn & 3010CN both display this fault.

The root cause of the problem is the Rubber pads of the feed roller in the paper tray become warn and fail to grip the paper the paper feeds a few millimetres and then is let go by the worn roller, the paper path sensors pick this up and then a paper jam is notified.

The only remedy for this problem is to obtain a new feed roller for the paper tray mechanism. Unfortunately dell in the UK do not sell maintenance kits to the public, and therefor ehte only place I found them wa on Ebay in the USA.

The kit in quetsion is the vertical paper feed maintenance kit. it costs around $50 plus shipping.

The only other option is to have a Dell approved service agent replace the rollers for you.

If you hear a grinding or cruching noise when paper is fed, then one of the mini plastic guide rollers had detached itself from its position and wound up in the tape path mechanism (very expensive repair)

Dell 3000cn Laser Printer Problem--Paper Jam

Have you been able to get the toner out yet?

There is a little handle on the right side that you need to lift to unlock the cartridge:


See if there is anything hiding in that part of the paper path. Maybe even just re-seating the cartridge will be enough for the sensors to stop tripping.

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.
