I have an imagerunner 2800 and it only seems to jam in the tray loading area, just bends the long side of the paper randomly. It changes it's performance just like the weather, sometimes I can get multiple...


A couple of things to consider:
Do not load the following types of paper in the paper drawer. Doing so may cause a paper jam.
- Severely curled or wrinkled paper
- Heavyweight paper
- Transparencies
- Paper on which color images have been copied.
- Paper which has been copied on using a digital full color copier (do not copy on the reverse side
either).
- Paper which has been printed on using a thermal transfer printer (do not copy on the reverse side
either).

Also, what # paper are you using?

Paper Jam message on every print job.


I have the same printer without the doc feeder. Check the paper trail thru the printer for the paper sensor lever hanging up. It gets pushed up by the paper and can stick, making the printer think it still has paper in it. Pulling the cart unsticks it till you print again.

PAPER JAMMED-PRINTER HL5150D


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.

  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.

Paper jam


I have had this problem, and have became very furiated.

Clear the Jam by removing and paper you see in from the rear access door.
If you are printing something from a PDF website....... make sure to have it still in the printer schedule.... It will still say printer jam..... but have it there regardless if its something you dont want to have to retype into the pdf form........ After that simply restart your computer. It should resume printer as soon as your computer boots up.....

Worked for me..... Hope this helps everyone else whos probably cursing your printer at the moment!!!!
