No you can't disconnect the sensor to continue printing.
Try opening the front and right doors and then close them.
Switch off and on again after 5 seconds.
If jam B still there, possible causes may be:
Exit sensor defective;
Exit sensor lever stucked;
Check the registration sensor/lever;
Rotate the registration roller with your hand slowly - there may be a piece of paper keeping the registartion sensor On.

Good luck and please rate me, thanks.

My kyocera KM 1815 keeps saying "paper jam 00 open left cover and remove paper jam but there is no jam


Hi

Check all the paper movement from the tray, left or right cover, front cover, if so then remove jammed paper. Otherwise the paper sensor spring guide missing or fell off from its original position. Check carefully where the sensor locate. paper sensors detect all the paper movement in the machine during copying or printing, so locate the place in the machine which the paper usually jammed, see the screen of the machine, it will locate the place where the paper jammed mostly. Sensor not return to it original position that is why ( remove paper jam keeps blinking)

4TH LIGHT FROM THE TOP KEEPS COMING ON LEXMARK E232


What this light sequence means that the printer has a paper jam.

When a paper jam occurs, the printer stops and the operator panel's Paper Jam light and Continue button lights come on. Press and release Continue twice quickly to display the specific secondary error paper jam light sequence.


How to clear Paper Jam

Press Continue button twice quickly to see the secondary error code.


To get the secondary error codes

When the Error light (!) and Continue button lights are both on, a secondary error has occurred.

When the Paper Jam light (4th light) and Continue button lights are both on, a paper jam secondary error has occurred.

Press and release Continue button twice quickly to display the secondary error code light sequence.


Press Continue button to resume printing once all the jammed pages are cleared from the paper path.

We recommend that you clear the entire paper path when a paper jam occurs.


To clear a paper jam:


1 If you are feeding paper from a tray, remove the tray, and then remove any jams.

2 Open the front cover and remove the print cartridge assembly.

NOTE: Do not leave the print cartridge assembly exposed to direct light for an Extended period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.

3 Remove any jams in the area behind the print cartridge assembly.

4 Lift the flap at the front of the printer and remove any jams beneath the flap.

5 Open the rear exit and remove any jams.

6 After you have cleared the jams, reinstall the print cartridge assembly, make sure all printer covers and trays are closed, and then press Continue button to resume printing.

NOTE: The printer reprints the pages that caused the paper jam.

My cannon MP160 pixma keeps telling me there is a paper jam when there is no paper in it, it will copy and give me color tests printed out but if i try to print a doc. It says E# paper jam


Hello thanks for using fixya

Actually you are facing E3 error, E3 error is mostly because of paper jam. their may be small bit paper jam in side
There are some "micro-sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper, or a lump of dust, inside those sensors, thus "tripping" the sensor and saying you paper jam.

To solve it
Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feeder

If you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects then
Turn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air.
If still problem exist then best & final option is to just contact to any Canon service provider.

I hope this solution will helpful 4 u

On my Gestetner DSc516pf copier the message keeps reading "paper jam". I have cleared out all paper and checked every place I know, but the message continues to appear. Can you be of assistance?


Hi,

Do you see Any Error Message on the Display?

Unplug the Unit for Few Minutes, say 30 minutes and then Turn it ON. If the Problem Persists, more often it is a Hardware Failure.

In these Models, there is an Electronic Sensor that senses the Paper Jam. It seems that it might be at Fault. The Sensor is not Serviceable and it has to be replaced. These Sensors are not easily Available in the Market.If you could find the Sensor, i would be able to Guide you to Fix this. You need to have Schematics which we might find later on, once you would get the Sensor.

Note - I am taking into consideration that you have already checked and made sure that there is no Paper Jam.Sometimes, you might find small clips of Paper in and around the Rollers.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Says Paper Jam but ther is no paper jam


It appear from here that the exit sensor may be dirty and you can use canned air and blow it out.

You may also be missing the paper out sensor that is located at the bottom of the printer oposite of the paper tray when you pull it out. When the flag arm has fallin out, it will give a false paper jam error when the last sheet has printed from the tray, not knowing or detecting that the tray is now empty.
