Clear and reset a paper jam error in Dell2145cn

Posted by Anonymous on

  • sarah dutler Aug 27, 2013

    This solution may work for smaller printers, what about those large ones like the 2145cn. I am having a problem with a paper jam message . It states that thre is a paper jam in the inside 2. I have taken all the parts that can be taken out without using any tools. Cleaned and cleared all visible obstacles. There wasn't a piece of paper jammed anywhere btw. Rebooted the mashine. It still showed red light upon initializing and remained stubborn! What else can I do?

**HW support: 877-459-7298 and you must have the Express Service Code of your printer or any Dell product you're calling in so that they can route you to the right department.** Usually, if you're having paper jams, it could be a mechanical problem with the printer. Try these: - turn off the printer. unplug the power adapter for 1-2 minutes - lift the printer upside down and shake it sideways (strange huh?... usually, this helps because it can re-align those things that may not be aligned right inside the printer) - then, adjust the paper guides and use about 10-15 pieces of paper. try using the printer. if it's still the same... it really is the printer. - if it's still under warranty, Dell can replace it. This information is from Dell, try it it can't hurt.

SOURCE: Paper Jam error

If it works like the 1700n (I think it does), if you press Continue twice it should light up different lights as a secondary error code. It should tell you close to where it thinks the paper jam is. Check the sensors there, clean them, whatever. If you have a spare printer, or another one, you may try switching out the sensor (takes some tearing apart of the printer) and see if that fixes it.

Close the cover and tray firmly. Then check for a test page.

Have an Error 51 on Brother MFC-210C all in one printer?


I can help you with your Brother MFC-210C error 51 problem.

Error 51 refers to a paper jam error.
Clear the paper jam to clear the error code.
If the error code will not clear after clearing the jam, resetting and powering off, the printer may require service.

I hope that helps.

Paper jam and still won't print


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Before you can clear the error message, you must locate where in the unit the paper is jammed.

Unplug the machine for safety. Now follow these instructions based on where the paper jam is located.

1. Pull the paper tray out of the machine.
2. Pull out the jammed paper.
3. Reset the machine by opening the Upper Jam Clear Cover and then closing it.

If you cannot remove the jammed paper from the front of the machine, or the error message still appears on the LCD after you have removed the jammed paper, please go to the next step.

4. Remove the Lower Jam Clear Cover from the back of the machine. Pull the jammed paper out of the machine.

5. Put the Lower Jam Clear Cover back on. Make sure the cover is set properly.

6. Open the Upper Jam Clear Cover. Make sure that there is no jammed paper left in the corners of the machine.
Note: If the paper is jammed under the print head, unplug the machine from the power source, then move the print head to take out the paper. 7. Close the Upper Jam Clear Cover.

8. Close the output paper tray cover and slide it forward, then push the paper tray firmly back into the machine. While holding the paper tray in place, pull out the paper support until it clicks and unfold the paper support flap.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Paper Jam error will not reset after removing jammed paper


In many cases, you must use compressed air in a can, and blow out the insides of the printer. These printers use photoelectronic eye technology to tell you when there is no paper left, or other supplies are used up. But unless you clear that out by blowing air through and past those sensors, they do not reset. The paper dust continues to block the sensor which makes it report that there is no paper, that there is a paper jam, etc.
Try clearing it out that way.

RICOH Aficio 150 Paper Jam Reset


There is not a reset for jams in service mode. Did you open and close all the doors and make sure they are closed all the way. Most likely you still have a small piece of paper left some where in the paper path or you may have a broken sensor flag.
