I have an epson printer and when I hit print, the paper slides right thru & says paper jam


  • Carefully remove the jammed photo paper. Gently pull the paper up and out of the paper feeder tray.

  • 2

    Reload the paper into the tray. Stack the paper on a flat surface and then carefully slide the paper stack straight into the paper feeder tray---along and aligned with the right side of the tray. Secure the stack in place by sliding the left "edge guide" against the paper stack.

  • 3

    Press the "OK" button to resume printing. If you had a "Paper is jammed in the printer..." error message displayed on the control panel LCD, pressing "OK" should also clear the message.

  • 4

    Pull the paper from the printer, if the status message reappears and/or the printer doesn't print, and check the paper for folds, buckling and curled edges or corners. Also check the sheets for sticking. If any of your sheets stick or have damage, remove them from your photo paper stack and replace with new sheets. Reload the paper and press "OK" to try again.

    Steps to clear paper jam.


    Please perform the below steps.

    1. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge inside the all-in-one printer to dissipate before putting your hands or any metal tools inside the chassis.

    2.
    Pin down the exact location of the jam. The 3 hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and print carriage or between the print carriage and output tray.

    3.
    Take off the front paper tray if the sheet jammed while still in the front area of the printer. If here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

    4.
    Pull the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a piece deeper inside the machine.

    5.
    Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed-tray area and print carriage. Carefully remove the jammed paper.

    6.
    Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside the printer. You may need to remove the print carriage to get to the jam.

    7.
    Replace all parts and return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

    How to clear paper jam?


    How to clear the jam depends on where the jam is.

    If the Jam is in Tray 1:
    1. If you can see the jammed sheet, remove the jammed sheet by pulling it straight out.
    2. If you cannot see the jammed sheet, open the tray 1 door and pull out tray 2.
    3. Push down on two tabs to release the tray 1 panel.
    4. Remove the jammed sheet by pulling it straight out.
    5. Push up on two tabs to replace the tray 1 panel.
    6. Replace tray 2.

    If the Jam is in Tray 2:
    1. Pull out tray 2 and place it on a flat surface.
    2. Remove the jammed sheet by pulling it straight out.
    3. Replace tray 2.
    4. Press OK to continue printing.

    If the Jam is in the Fuser area:
    1. Open the rear door.
    2. Remove any jammed sheets.
    3. Close the rear door.

    If the Jam is in the Output Bin:
    1. Look for jammed paper in the output bin area.
    2. Remove any visible media
    3. Open and then close the rear door to clear the message.

    It is possible that the paper may tear when clearing the jam. Be sure to clear any paper fragments that tear off.

    Paper jammed


    Hi Good day!!!
    Here are some steps to remove paper jam

    1. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge to fade away before putting your hands on the metal tools inside the chassis.

    2. Pin down the exact location of the jam. The three hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, between the feed tray and the print carriage or between the print carriage and the output tray.

    3. Take off the front paper tray. If the sheet jammed around here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

    4. Pull on the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Don't tug too quickly. You might rip the paper, leaving a chunk of it deeper in the machine.

    5. Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed tray area and the print carriage of the all-in-one printer. Carefully remove the jammed paper from the machine.

    6. Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside. You may need to move the print carriage out of your way to get at the jam.

    7. Return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

    When printing paper continues to jam.


    1. Take out paper tray 1.
    2. Remove any jammed sheets of paper you find there.
    3. Once you have done this, reinstall the paper tray and try printing again.
      Note: You may receive a message informing you that another sheet of paper is jammed elsewhere in the printer. If so, please open the front door and remove the toner cartridge. Also open the rear door of the printer (and the duplex option if a duplex unit is installed). Remove any and all jammed sheets of paper you find. Then try printing again.
    4. If the printer jams again with a 241 Paper Jam error message, look to see if it has tried to feed a sheet of paper out of the tray.

    Lexmark t640: paper jam in the back door. I can see the edge of the paper. How do I release the tension on the rollers so I can slide it out? Now it is in there tight and to grab it just tears off a piece...


    Hope this helps....
    Explanation of the paper jam message

    A 241.09 Paper Jam message indicates that the printer thinks a sheet of paper has jammed at the front of the printer. The jammed sheet of paper is most likely to be found in one of the paper trays or under the toner cartridge.
    NOTE: If you select Show areas on the operator panel, you can view one or more images to help you locate and clear the jam.

    Clearing the jam
    To resolve the paper jam message, you must first clear the entire paper path. To access the jam area, you will need to open one or more of the paper trays. Follow the steps in the table below to help you locate and clear the jam.
    Step Action Image 1 Open the printer paper tray (tray 1), and remove any jammed media you find there. pattlnk_10222007_1922-enus28872_24109paperjam1_t64x_en_us.gif 2 Open the front cover and remove the toner cartridge. Examine the area inside the printer and remove any jammed media you find there. pattlnk_10242007_159-enus28872_24109paperjam5_t64x_en_us.gif 3 If you have a duplex option installed, also remove the duplex access tray and remove any jammed media you find there. pattlnk_10302007_1559-enus28860_24x17paperjamduplex_t64x_en_us.gif 4 If you were printing from an optional paper tray, such as tray 2 or tray 3, open any optional trays, starting at the top, and remove any jammed media. Pull the print media either up or down. If it does not pull easily one way, try the other way pattlnk_10222007_1957-enus28872_24109paperjam3_t64x_en_us.gif 5 If you are printing from an optional 2000-sheet feeder, open the front door. Press the elevator button (A) to lower the tray. Remove any partially fed media from the feeder.
    NOTE: Make sure the stack of print media is straight and pushed all of the way into the feeder. Incorrectly loaded paper is the most common cause of paper jams from a 2000-sheet feeder option.
    pattlnk_10222007_2110-enus28872_24109paperjam4_t64x_en_us.gif
    For a larger image, click here. 6 Finally, reinstall all of the paper trays and press the pattlnk_10222007_2117-select_button.jpg button to try printing again.
    NOTE: You may receive a different paper jam message informing you that another sheet of paper is jammed elsewhere in the printer. If this occurs, the error code will indicate the location. Click here for a diagram showing the error code locations. The paper path will vary, depending on the paper source and number of paper feed options installed.
    Remove any jammed sheets of paper you find and try printing again.
