Paper jam error, but no jam present

Lexmark x3430 all-in-one printer/scanner/copier continues to show "paper jam" error, but there's no jam present. Something seems to be wrong with part of the paper feed mechanics. The machine will pull the paper down a few inches, but doesn't feed it far enough to where the paper gets any ink on it and then when the machine tries to send the paper out of the machine, I can here the gears turnings, but the paper not being far enough "ahead", is left in place and the jam error appears.

    have tried various types of paper, all of which have worked fine in the past. the issue doesn't seem to be related to paper size or type. thanks though.

My printer HP Deskjet 1051 says there is a paper jam but no paper jam present


Use a flashlight to examine as much of the paper path as you can see. There may be a shred of paper left over from an earlier jam. There might be some foreign object such as a paper clip stuck inside.

Hi. The error message shown as paper jam cleared a) not fully b) not carefully and there is any paper fragment or a whole page remained yet. The sensors are perceive the paper in the paper way, so there are any dirty thing or paper fragment. Read again the user manual, section of paper jam carefully and try to clear out again.

Scanner will not load from top feeder. Error says paper jam but no paper is jammed into the feeder.


the rollers may be broken, this would give the appearance of the paper jam to the printer

ADF paper jam, when there is none


If you are receiving an Error Code 103 or a Paper Jam error, but there are no pages in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder), follow the steps below:
  1. Close the scanning application (such as PaperPort)
  2. Turn off the scanner and the computer
  3. If you have a combination ADF with a Flatbed scanner, unplug the ADF cable from the base of the scanner
  4. Plug the ADF cable back in
  5. Turn on the scanner power
  6. Turn on the computer
  7. Try scanning again
For a Paper Jam or Error Code 103, make sure that the ADF cable in the rear is connected to the scanner base. Check the flatbed to make sure that it is clear. A page incorrectly placed on the flatbed may interfere with a page feeding through the ADF.

If your scanner stops scanning due to a paper jam in the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF), a warning dialog box appears after a few moments.

To clear a paper jam:
  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.
  2. Remove the jammed paper and close the cover.
If you are receiving a paper jam error, or if the scanner is running continuously, check to make sure the paper sensor arm is not stuck down.
  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.
  2. Look for the small black plastic arm
  3. When you press on this arm, it should move freely up and down
  4. If the arm is stuck down, please contact Technical Support for troubleshooting options
  5. Close the ADF cover.
