Stick a 9x11 piece of cardboard down into the paper tray. It will push any small piece of paper that may be caught there.

How to Fix a Paper Jam in a Copy Machine


It seems inevitable that the copy machine will have a paper jam. You need the copies immediately, so how do you fix the jam? Luckily, ingenuity and a manual, can help you fix the problem yourself. Fixing a paper jam, can elevate you to hero status amongst your co-workers.

  1. Discover the location of the jam. Carefully open the cover of the copy machine and the paper tray to see exactly where the paper is jammed.
  2. Step 2 Turn off the copy machine before pulling out the paper.
  3. Step 3 Pull the page out, the opposite way it is fed into the copier. Pull the jammed sheet out gently. If you tug too hard, the paper may rip.
  4. Step 4 Check for any paper fragments and clean up any torn pieces.
  5. Step 5 Check the roller where the jam occurred to be sure none of the copier parts are loose or broken. The roller should be smooth all the way across with no possible snags.
  6. Step 6 Replace the cover and paper tray and turn the machine back on.
  7. Step 7 Press the button to cancel the paper jam message. This button will vary among copy machines. The display will tell you which button to push.

    There is a document jam 1. After I remove the paper and code goes away, the printer may print a page or two and then jam again. I have tried a new pack of paper (fanning it) I have tried a new...


    You refer to a document jam then you mention fanning new paper but that refers to a paper jam.Which one is the problem? What does the screen say? If document jam then its your originals you are copying. If paper jam then its the paper in the machine. I cant help you any more because your do not state the make or model. Please repost with a lot more detail. Cheers

    I went to copy a sheet of paper this morning and my copier worked. Then i went to copy another page and i got a paper jam, and then System Error E000 appeared, and now i don't know how to fix it.


    There still might be a tiny piece of paper caught in there. Take out the toner, and if you can open any panels, check inside those too.

    Hope this helps
