CLX-3160FN Paper Jam when there is no paper jam.

    It keeps trying to pull from the manual feeder and then can't actually do it. A lot of times you cannot even assist by pushing the paper in and it continually says paper jam. you then have to open one of the doors and close it and wait an EXTREMELY long time for the warm up period to end only to cross your fingers and try all over again.

Normal 0 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. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Hi,

it is most likely that the fuser actuater arm is not sitting back to the sensor properly. open the back door you will be able to see the fuser, on your right hand side you should be able to see a fliper that sit in between a sensor. try to adjust the fliper flag and see if it works.

if it still continue to give you the same error. try remove the fuser four screw 2 side on each. adjust the flag again and fix it back. it should work and double check for any lose small pices of paper jam in the printer.

It is telling you that there is a paper jam. Open the door, pull the jammed paper out, close the door, it should clear the message.

I removed a paper jam from rear of clx-3160fn. Now the rear door will not close all the way. The two plastic tabs on the rails inside seem to be in the way. Everything I have tried to do and move around...


power it off and on again ...but first repeat the operation like you did when you removed the paper jam...it might not be slide back completely ...
when you power it on keep the button pressed to reset ....
also take a good look to the roller to have all in place ...it might be not in place cause you forced the paper out ..or not removed all the paper if it broke in the process ..

I get a paper jam every time I try to print, how do I keep printer from getting a paper jam?


There may be a piece of paper or other object in the paper channel. Open the printer up as much as you can and look for a piece of paper. Also, did you change the paper type? Maybe the paper is the problem.
