SOURCE: printer says paper jam, but there is no paper in the printer. (mfc 210c)

If the paper tore when removing it, chances are there could be a small piece of paper still causing the paper jam. Sometimes all you need to do is turn the fax off for a few minutes and then turn it on again and the paper jam message is gone

Hello a_bowen1


You can clear the jammed paper as follows.

If the jammed paper is removed completely by using the information in the following steps, you can install the paper tray first, and then close the front cover and the printer will resume printing automatically.

If the printer does not start printing automatically, press the Go button. If the printer still does not start printing, please check that all the remaining jammed paper has been removed from the printer. Then try printing again.
Note

    • If a paper jam occurs when using the optional lower tray unit, check for correct installation of the upper paper tray.
    • Always remove all paper from the paper tray and straighten the stack when you add new paper. This helps prevent multiple sheets of paper from feeding through the printer at one time and reduces paper jams.
  1. Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer.

  1. Pull the jammed paper up and out of the printer.

  1. Press the cover release button and then open the front cover.

  1. Pull out the drum unit assembly. Pull the jammed paper up and out of the printer. If you cannot remove the drum unit assembly easily at this time, do not use extra force. Instead, pull the edge of the jammed paper from the paper tray. If the jammed paper can not be pulled out easily, turn the jam dial towards you as you gently pull the paper out.
hl50_05712.gif Caution
    To prevent damage to the printer caused by static electricity, do not touch the electrodes shown below.
hl50_046.gif
  1. Open the face-up output tray. Pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit. If the paper jam can be cleared, go to Step 7.
Note
    If you have to pull the paper toward the back of the printer, the fuser may get dirty with toner powder and it may scatter on the next few printouts. Print a few copies of the test page until the scattering of toner stops.
chap0615.gif Caution
    After you have just used the printer, some internal parts of the printer are extremely hot! Wait for the printer to cool down before you touch the internal parts of the printer.
hl50_058a.gif
  1. Open the jam clear cover. Pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit.
hl50_059.gif
  1. Close the jam clear cover. Close the face-up output tray. If the paper jam still cannot be cleared, for HL-5130 and HL-5140 users go to Step 10, and for all other users go to the next step.
  1. Pull the Duplex Tray completly out of the printer.
hl50_065.gif
  1. Pull the jammed paper out of the printer or the Duplex tray. Put the Duplex tray back into the printer.
chap0634.gif
  1. Push the lock lever down and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit assembly. Take out the jammed paper if there is any inside the drum unit.
    Put the toner cartridge into the drum unit until you hear it lock into place. If you put it in properly, the lock lever will lift automatically.
hl50_047.gif Caution
    To avoid print quality problems, DO NOT touch the shaded part shown in the illustration.
    If you accidentaly touch the shaded part, wipe the surface with a dry lint-free soft cloth.

  1. Put the drum unit assembly back in the printer.
  1. Put the paper tray in the printer.
  1. Close the front cover.

SOURCE: Brother MFC-9420CN Paper Jam Error message w/ loud grinding noiz

please try this

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Won't let me fax, copy or print. it tells me paper jam 2 look in


paper jam 2 generally denotes the fuser unit. thats at the back, the bit that heats up, theres a flip up/down cover that once opened should show you if theres any paper in there, also check the sensor, little black arm, move freely and be sprung, if the sensor is missaligned it will denote a paper jam even when there is none be careful to let the fuser cool down, printer unplugged for 10 minutes or so, 180 degrees will hurt.

Can't fax or copy on brother mfc3240c machine


Sounds like you may have a small obstruction in the scanner feed. This would inhibit making copies and sending faxes. Lift this section up slightly to inspect for small pieces of paper or dust. Blowing it out with compressed air would also be a good idea.

The paper feeder of my canon super g3 jams every time


Yes, there is an easy solution, possibly. Mainly because you say it may do a single job, and then it keeps jamming. Do you see the second sheet jamming in when it is not called for? Anyhow, you may try cleaning the rollers, all of them, like I did here: http://annoyances-resolved.blogspot.com/2009/09/paper-jam-buy-new-laser-printer.html This completely solved my problem of persistent paper jams.

Paper jammed as it was coming out


First, I prayed for help since I was using the copier when it jammed and then I very carefully pulled a small bit of paper on one side being certain not to tear it, then the other side. After about 30 minutes by using a eyeglass screw driver to help the paper come out, it pulled out and looked like an accordion. I put the toner back in and it worked fine. After reading the reviews, we won't be making double sided copies on this machine.
Thanks for your assistance.

Copying


You should be able to open the machine up easily and see the jam. It is a very small unit and no plece for the paper to hide. Does the unit use a film ribbon to print from. If so, remove the ribbon to see the jam.

I had the same problem- jam error with no paper in it. I tried all of the suggestions to no avail. So as a last resort before I went and purchased another one I unplugged it, picked it up, turned it upside down and whacked it a few times. To my surprise when I plugged it back up it worked just fine! Haven"t had any problem since. I don"t reccomend this but as a last resort, what the heck!
