Re: error message

Check the manual to see if the Reset button is mentioned. Check the Tech Help line for the same. In many cases with the printer switched off pressing a combination of buttons then switching on will rest the printer- but different makers different models, differing button set up Also take a look at has a lot of answers.

Why am i getting the error message * memory rx 2P Recording Paper Jam? I can t find a jam anywhere?

Delete the fax and check paper tray rollers are cleaned. May be missing feeding which mean roller can't grab the paper and machine is expecting the paper to be at a certain point and does not see (Though sensors though out the paper route thru the machine so it thinks there is a paper jam) Also mite want o clear the memory (SRAM/DRAM) will lose one touches so make sure you have list backup

Constant Paper Jam

check the wheels that pick it from the tray.
If they feel smooth, try to put some tape on them and rip it back off.
This cleans the wheels. Also try a new pack of paper and check if it\'s set to plain paper and not to heavier or coated paper

Paper will not feed

Hi, maybe there is still a little bit of jammed inside that you can\'t see. Try to see if there is and clean it. If you\'re sure there is no paper jam whatsoever, then there is a conflict with your feeding sensors or your cartridge isn\'t properly installed.
kind regards

Lexmark 7675 paper jam

> feeds unevenly

Usually, there are two, maybe three, rollers that should _evenly_ pull the paper through the path.
Check that each roller is making good contact with the paper.

> out of paper error-message

There's a small sensor, and usually a "finger" that rises when the weight of the paper is not sufficient to hold the finger down. Check for "dust" clogging/blocking this finger.

If all else fails, it's time to take the printer to a qualified technician, for a professional cleaning & tune-up.

Epson Stylus Photo R350 giving a paper jam error message

An Epson service man (he was VERY kind to suggest this) told me to use a weak detergent solution on the rollers, NOT alcohol as that will dry out the material the rollers are made of. Although the problem has recurred a couple of times, it's worth repeating when necessary. I actually activate the 'print' command so it tries to feed in paper, while I FIRMLY hold a piece of fine cotton cloth stretched over a thin plastic ruler, which I hold down where the paper feed grabs its paper. The printer has a couple of tries to feed paper, reports an error message (because there was no paper) and I activate it again, thus exposing the WHOLE of the feed wheel to the cleansing cloth! WORTH A TRY!

My CX3200 printer shows an error message that there is a jam but there is no jam. I press the green color button and the error message is still there. I put a piece of paper in the paper holder and it went...


There are various sensors based on the printer and it maybe that one of these has failed. Try using a can or air to clean around the paper feeding area and see if that helps, if not then it maybe time for a new printer as the CX3200 has been superseaded many times now.

Paper Jam

hi y'all -

you share a frustrating problem... error message but no apparent error (jam)! it's one that's common to many models of printers and the result of many different causes.

I've seen it when I've printed on cheaper paper, or different (lower) grades with odd surface finishes. the sensors get dirty, or the printer/computer 'thinks' there's paper stuck where none exists. I've opened/closed paper trays 2-3 times and rolled feed rollers around multiple times, then closed printer paper drawers only to have the 3rd time of doing the exact same steps be the time it cleared the error message.

there are often very tiny pieces of paper stuck in weird places in the paper path in printers, too. if you did have a jam before the message started, is every little scrap of the page accounted for? there are also hard to get to places to find paper scraps in larger printers, but I'm going to assume you're all talking about home printers.

here are a few general HP support links you may find helpful for future paper jam messages for this model of printer.

this link is for general info for this model:

here's a link addressing paper jams in general:

and here's one on cleaning your printer:

hope this helps a little bit for future refs. remember that using good paper helps print quality and lessens printing problems. also, when you take a stuck page out of a printer, doing so gently will help ensure little scraps of paper do not tear off paper edges and get stuck in weird spots. it some times helps to gently, manually, roll the feed rollers a full turn around in the printer, too. patience pays! -JW50

Paper Misfeed Problem

When you close the doors does the message disappear? If so then the paper pickup roller is worn. Open the cassette remove all paper apart from one sheet. Spray a alcohol based cleaned on the leading edge of the paper. Try and do a copy this will issue a jam and also clean the pickup roller. repeat a few times then clean out the cassette and dry off place new paper in the cassette and try. Also there maybe a piece of paper behind the cassette. Remove cassette and reach in and remove paper lodged at back.

Thanks Jason

LCD Error message: Paper output slot. Thye paper is jammed. clear the paper and press OK.

A jam sensor may be stuck or have something stuck on it, causing the machine to think it is jammed. These sensors are normally located where the paper feeds into the printer, and where the paper exits the printer. Try forcing a sheet of paper through the machine in the direction paper normally. feeds. This may free up the jam sensors.
