SOURCE: paper jam

I too have this infuriating problem and the reason has already been pinpointed very well it is indeed the front rubber pinch cam not grabbing the paper well. I have approached this problem from another angle... under the front sprung loaded flap on the paper tray
there are two compression springsapprx 1/2" in dia. Gently prise apart the 2 flap pivot (on the extended arms) to gain access to the springs ,pull out the springs and either replace them with slightly stronger ones or pull the existing springs apart to retension them and pop them back (long-nosed pliers or tweezers) this will restore the spring tension lost during use with the rubber pinch cam.

SOURCE: continual paper jam: canon mp830 - error 5100

follow the following:
As a technician, I have worked on tons of printers. This particular error had stumped me for a while, but I finally found the cause. As others had pointed out before, it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on) Hope this helps some of you out.
Thanks

SOURCE: paper wont feed all the way through the printer.

I had the same problem and suspected that there was something stuck in the printer. I could not find maintenance manuals for free so I messed around with it for a while and found a temporary solution. There is a lever inside the printer and if you turn it to envelope setting it seems to give more allowance for the paper and it goes through okay. I think it is not a permanent solution because there is a screw missing and I suspect that it is stuck inside somewhere but the lever trick works. It is where the paper comes out after it is printed; at the front, bottom of the printer. If you find the instructions to open the printer, I'd appreciate them!
Thanks, Helen

Hi there,

What kind of paper are you using?

Normal paper or Photo Glossy paper?

If you use Photo Glossy Paper, you have to put at least two sheets of paper. If you read the photo glossy paper instructions that came in the package you will see it.
The package brings one sheet more than mentioned because of this specification.

Hello there
Not allways you will see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

I have a 5650 lexmark printer and it keeps saying paper jams but there is not paper anywhere.. how can i find a solution... when you load paper it keepps getting stuck.. help


There could be something blocking the paper path. Try to shake the printer upside down. You'll be amazed of the things that falls off inside the printer. Also, make sure that there's no paper left inside the printer. Tiny pieces of paper will still lead to paper jams.

My paper keeps going in crooked and jams


Hi, at the following link you will find some easy to follow steps on how to prevent this type of problems. Also make sure there is nothing blocking the path of the paper when the printer is trying to feed it. Sometimes objects will fell inside the printer and block the paper path thus causing the paper to be pulled from one side and the other jamming.

Paper jam message


on most lexmark printers when it reports a paper jam with no paper it means that the main motor drive has not initiated. open the top lid and stick a q-tip in the sensor that tells the printer the lid is open. turn the printer on and observe to see if any of the feed wheels turn during self tast. if they do not you have a bad motor drive.

Original jam error keeps displaying but nothing is jamed, I try to reset the wole printer by pluging it while pressin #+6 or #+3 but it thinks that the buttons are stuck.


There is paper jammed in the machine or something is blocking the sensor for the paper path.

Remove the obstruction (try a vacuum cleaner nozzle down the feed path) and the machine should be right again

Feeder crunching up paper


I have the same printer. Have you cheked the paper path for the document feeder to make sure there is nothing in the way. Like a label, a torn piece of paper, etc. It really sounds like there is something in the paper path.

Carefully check the paper feed track to ensure there is no debris stuck- only needs a crumb to do it. Take a stack of paper- knock it up- that is with it in your hand knock the ends together so the that all feed straight. Then try. - no Go? Get a piece thicker paper/card- and try a paper feed with this single sheet. Sill no go? Try to find out how to 'reset' your printer This may mean if you have several buttons on the machine- with the machine off- hold the buttons down then switch the machine on and keep the button down until it has stopped initializing. Still in trouble? Take a look at www.fixyourownprinter.com
