Re: Tray Jamming

Sounds like the rollers are having issues. You could call the manufacture and get a local repair shop to switch out the rollers for you.

How do I clean toner from machine?

Probably it's the jammed paper that might caused the error. I suggest have it serviced by the technician. Be aware of the paper handling capacity of your machine to minimize jamming:

Phaser 3300MFPV/X, Copy/Print/Colour Scan/Fax, B&W, 28 ppm, A4, 1200 dpi, 50-sheet ADF, 250-sheet Paper Tray, 50-sheet Multipurpose tray, 150-sheet Output Tray, 96 MB, Automatic 2-sided printing, USB/Ethernet, PCL/PS3, Scanning software, 220 V

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.

    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.

    How do i clear a paper jam

    1. 1
    Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge to fade away before putting your hands or metal tools inside the chassis.
    2. Step 2
    Pin down the exact location of the jam. The three hot spots for a jam are the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and the print carriage, or between the print carriage and the output tray.
    3. Step 3
    Take off the front paper tray if the sheet got stuck while it was still in the front area of the printer. If the sheet jammed here, you should be able to see most of the paper.
    4. Step 4
    Pull on the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a chunk of it deeper in the machine.
    5. Step 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. Step 6
    Use the carriage access door to reach a jam further inside the all-in-one printer. You may need to move the print carriage out of your way to clear the jam.
    7. Step 7
    Return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

    My laserjet 1020 develops a paper jam after printing the first page of a multipage print instruction .I have deleted the printer and re-installed it including all drivers but problem still...

    Reinstalling the printer is related the Software.
    If the paper gets physically jammed than its the driver setting issue or hardware issue.
    Check if two sheets get jammed or only one sheet.
    If it is two sheets than printer is picking up multiple sheets and paper gets jammed.
    If the printer is jamming a single sheet than remove the Tray and look there is rubber roller inside if there are marks or lines on that rubber roller or if the roller roller is worn out than that rubber roller called as paper pickup roller need to be replaced.
    If that looks fine than try to priny using manual feed and if the problem persists from manual feed too than try another toner cartridge
    If the problem is not from Manual feed Tray that Replace the main Tray with known good Tray and check if the issue resolved.

    Kodak 5300 paper jam

    What kind of paper is jamming?
    The paper could be too thin, or too thick.

    Have any young children visited you recently?

    My neighbour's grandson thought the paper tray was a great place to hide his Oreo cookie and gummy bears. The crumbs on the roller made the paper wrap around inside. It was cheaper to buy a new printer than pay for a tear down. This happened to my neighbour over Christmas.

    Check for spilled ink inside the cartridge area.
    If Ink has dripped down on the rollers, that would jam the paper. This would only be an issue if anyone moved the printer. Could your cleaning person have done this? It happend to me, once.

    Have you checked the slider that adjusts for different paper sizes?
    It could be putting too much tension on the paper and throwing off the timing of the paper travelling through the printer, so the sheet is in the wrong place at the wrong time and jams up.

    Is it 8.5" x 11" photo grade inkjet paper or 4" x 6" photo paper?

    Before I print, I check that the paper type setting matches what is in the tray. If it is letter size premium photo paper, then I choose that paper in the printer settings. If it is premium letter size paper for documents then I choose that paper, so the printer can adjust itself to the paper.

    Are you using recycled paper?
    My Kodak, HP, Epson, and Canon printers jam. Recycled paper really screws up my machines. I don't like it and can't use it.

    Do you have too much paper in the tray?
    Try 5 or 10 sheets only in the tray to see if the amount of paper was the culprit.

    Have you tried a different package or brand of paper?
    One time a package of 500 sheets of HP inkjet wouldn't go through my KODAK , but worked fine in
    the other printers. The next package of HP paper worked fine.

    How long has the paper been out of the package and sitting in the printer?

    Try fanning the paper.

    Has the humidity in your area drastically changed in the past week?
    I have to keep the paper sealed in the original package. Inkjet paper out of the package is affected by humidity where I live. Winter heating causes out of package paper to collect static and stick to the rollers. Summer temperatures with high humidity causes out of package inkjet paper to absorb moisture from the room. This humid paper sticks together.

    Is the paper meant for a photo copier or laser printer/copier?
    I get lousy results with non-inkjet paper in every brand of injet printer I use.

    Is it Brand name InkJet paper, like Kodak, XEROX, or HP?
    I stick to brand name inkjet and photo paper. Dollar store paper always jams in my printers.

    For Document Printing I use either:
    Kodak's 24 lb Ultimate Inket Printer Brightness 98 paper,
    XEROX Premium Inkjet Brightness 98 24 lb,
    HP 96 Brightness Premium Inkjet Printer 24 lb paper.

    For Photo Printing I use Kodak's Ultra Premium Photo Paper, and adjust the printer's settings for it.

    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.
    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.
