Re: Printer will not work because of paper jam eror
I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock
(Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button
applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through
the printer. In most cases I have been able to clear
the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time. Worth a
try. I have fixed a number of printers this way saving costly
repairs. Hope this helps. Bud

Fixing a printer paper jam When working with any printer it's inevitable that you'll encounter a paper jam. Below are the steps you'll want to follow when this occurs.
Turn off the printer.
Inspect the location or tray the printed paper ejects to. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
all paper trays and any paper that may be stuck between the tray and
the printer. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
the printer door that allows you access to the printer ink cartridges
or toner and look for any stuck paper. If the stuck paper is visible
manually remove it.*
Turn the printer back on. If you continue
to receive a printer jam error try repeating the above steps again. If
issue still persist and you see no paper that is stuck in the printer
it's likely your printer is experiencing another hardware issues and we
suggest contacting the printer manufacturer for additional assistance and/or repair.
To manually remove paper pull on the paper with both hands being
careful not to tear the paper while pulling it. If you're unable to get
to an edge of the paper that allows you to pull it you may need to
manually rotate the gears that feed the paper through the printer.
Previously when you had tried to printing any paper the printer has adopted paper jammed error but at this time you have not turned off the system.The printer has configured paper jammed whenever you are trying to print. It represents that it want to restart the system. Unplug the printer and reconnect to your system.
hi just recently had these problems symptoms: LED flashing E3 code and alarm light was solid. But dissapeared when opened the coved and came back on when closed the cover. Also the when the cover was open the inks did not slide out to the left and stayed to the right side. There was no paper jam, but error said paper jam.
Solution: 1. I took a thick piece of paper, from like a paper folder ones, thick enough to go in the printer and not curl up when pushed.. 2. turned off the printer and turned it back on. 3, while printer was turning on,and makings sound as it does normally when turning on, I pushed through the piece of paper and the rotors stoped for a millisecond. 4.the rotors started again and pushed out the paper by it self with out my force. 5. I let the printer get started. and then turned it off and then on. 6. this solved all of my problems. this was the first problem ever with this printer in 3 years.,preety good printer.
my machine was also showing E3, and would NOT go away. My solution:
turn the machine off, feed a piece of thick cardstock into the paper feed.Turn the machine on, let the machine take the paper almost all the way in, then pull it back all the way out against the feed. My E3 disappeared and has not yet returned!!
Hope this helps
