SOURCE: False Paper Jam Message

Probably a jam sensor is dirty or stuck. Look through the paper path for a stuck plastic sensor arm, or dirt or paper dust on photocell typr sensors.Paper sensors are normally located near where paper feeds, and where it exits the machine. The paper must pass over these sensors as it travels through the machine.If a scrap of paper is left on the sensors, they will report it as a jam. If you can, try manually pushing a sheet of paper through the printer, ONLY in the direction it normally feeds. This may free up a stuck sensor arm, or force out the jammed scrap.

Hi,

I do understand that you have got the piece of paper removed from the printer. Even after this when its still showing the same error it's for sure that there is some more bits strangled inside. Please remove the toner and then check or clean the printer thoroughly. Also remove and straighten the papers that are there in the stack.

Hope you have the manual for the same to understand how to clean the printer. I am posting the manual for your reference:

Hi tkennedy0720,

Please follow these steps to assure you have made sure there is no jam.

1. Press the cover release lever to open the front cover.

2. Take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.

3. Open the back cover.

5. Using both hands, gently pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit.

8. Close the front cover.

9. Press the cover release lever to open the front cover.

10. Take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.

11. Hold down the lock lever on the right and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. Take out the jammed paper if there is any inside the drum unit.

12. Put the toner cartridge back into the drum unit until you hear it lock into place. If you put it in properly, the lock lever will lift automatically.

13. Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in the machine.

14. Close the front cover. Pull the paper tray completely out of the machine. Use both hands to slowly pull out the jammed paper.
reyjoshua07_10.gif

15. Press the cover release lever to open the front cover.
reyjoshua07_11.gif

16. Slowly take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly. The jammed paper may be pulled out with the toner cartridge and drum unit assembly, or this may release the paper so you can pull it out of the paper tray opening.

17. Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in the machine.
reyjoshua07_13.gif

18. Close the front cover.

20. Put the paper tray firmly back in the machine.

21. Take out any paper from the ADF (automatic document feeder) that is not jammed. Open the ADF cover. Carefully pull out the jammed document to the left. Check for and remove any small pieces of paper stuck in the machine. A small piece of paper stuck in ADF will cause a document jam.
reyjoshua07_14.gif

22. Close the ADF cover. Press Stop/Exit. If the Document is jammed under the document cover. Take out any paper from the ADF that is not jammed. Lift the document cover. Pull out any jammed documents to the right. Again, carefully check for and remove any small pieces of paper.
reyjoshua07_15.gif

23. Close the document cover. Press Stop/Exit. If the Document is jammed at the output tray. Take out any paper from the ADF that is not jammed. Pull the jammed document out to the right.
reyjoshua07_16.gif

24. Press Stop/Exit. If the Document is jammed in the duplex slot (only for machines which support Duplex printing). Take out any paper from the ADF that is not jammed. Pull the jammed document out to the right.
reyjoshua07_17.gif

25. Press Stop/Exit. Make a Copy to test. Before placing your document(s) in the ADF verify the error message "Document Jam" in no longer displayed on the LCD. If the error message continues to appear on the LCD, please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us". Verify the ADF document support (located on the top of the ADF) is pulled out. Verify the document(s) are between 5.8 to 8.5 in. wide and 5.8 to 14in. long. Make sure the documents are inserted face up in the ADF, top edge first. The ADF can hold up to 50 pages and feeds each sheet individually. Use standard 20 lb (80 g/m²) paper and always fan the pages before putting them in the ADF.

Note:
DO NOT use paper that is curled, wrinkled, folded, ripped, stapled, paper-clipped, pasted or taped. DO NOT use cardboard, newspaper or fabric. Make sure documents written with ink are completely dry. Adjust the paper guides to fit the width of your documents. This ensures the document(s) will feed straight, preventing jams. Make a copy listed below:
For MFC users :
Press Start.
For DCP users :
Press Copy located below the LCD and then press Start.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: BROTHER MFC 230 will not feed paper after a jam. unjammed paper. reset. still won't feed. help!

Had a similar problem with a HP laserjet and after much searching discovered a tiny piece of paper stuck in the printer. When you remove jammed paper make sure that you follow the manufacturers instructions, and verify that no torn off bits remain in the printer. A piece of paper 2mm wide or less could be the cause of all your problems and can be very hard to find.
Use a torch.

Why do i have a false jam reading?


I understand that you're receiving what you believe to be a 'false' paper jam on your HP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One Printer. I would like to work with you today with resolving this issue. Paper jams can be real or false. The product might report a paper jam even when there is no jammed paper. A false paper jam may also be the result of having a bad paper jam at a point in time and that bad jam causing a hardware issue to the paper sensor or rollers. I am going to provide you with some additional troubleshooting steps that apply to both real and false paper jams. You did state that you already checked the paper pathway inside the printer and failed to find any evidence of paper being stuck, but please run the step-by-step troubleshooting below, even if you have already run some of the steps.

Here are the steps for clearing the path:

I have a HP LaserJet 1312nfi that is giving me a FALSE paper jam message. I repeat - FALSE PAPER JAM IN BACK DOOR. False false false. I have uninstalled it on my computer and nothing. I have opened it...


Hello Chris! Welcome to FixYa!

If you are facing False Paper Jam error in your HP Laser Jet 1312nfi but If you cant see any obvious paper jams, try to look closely into the rollers or the inside. There could be some tiny paper shreds stuck within those rollers. Or there could be a tiny piece of paper blocking the printer's sensor and thus giving you a false paper jam error.
The rollers should be cleaned if the paper fails to feed smoothly into the unit. All document and media rollers should be cleaned using a lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water.

1. Turn Off the printer and unplugged power before cleaning the rollers. This will allow the rollers to be turned by hand in most cases.
2. Remove the rear access door to access the rollers. Clean any dust and debris from the rollers.
3. Open the back of the printer and check metal paper rollers (not the rubber rollers) in the interior of the printer. They should be clean and move freely. If these are not bright and shinny or have buildup on them, they should be cleaned. Also clean any dust and debris off of the rubber rollers.
4. Close the back cover and reattach the rear access door.
5. Plug the power cord back in and power the unit up. It should reinitialize for about 20 seconds.
6. Print another extended self-test page.
After following these steps carefully, False Error message will be disappeared.
I hope this solution helps you
Let me know if you have any confusion in your mind.


Sir, Your Rating as FIVE Stars for this solution and words of appreciation will be esteemed

HP p2015dn I can't find error 13.000 in the manual


13.XX error msg almost always refers to a paper jam. Paper jam can be an actual paper jam, can be a sensor that is broke or stuck in the wrong position, Could also be a false paper jam. Printer tries to feed paper, paper never feeds, causing the paper path sensor to say "hey, that sheet of paper never reached me, so it must have jammed somewhere. Check the paper path for a paper or piece of paper.

Printer indicates Paper Jam 2. I followed all the steps. However, there isn't any paper jam. How do I clear this error? It will not clear.


There is an issue with fuser exit sensor on this printer. They will report false paper jams. A small part needs to be replaced to solve the issue.

Hp Officejet L7480 false paper jam message. Resetting the printer has no effect.


Hp paper jam error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

Open door cariadge jam


this error generally comes in when there is actually a paper jam or it gives a false paper jam.. so first of all make sure that these should not be any paper stuck inside the printer.. clean all the paper rollers with a little moist lint free cloth.. then plug the printer directly to the wall jack for the power supply if not connected..
if it doesnt resolve the issue.. we may have to perform a reset as well ..
