Lexmark W480 jam in D

The jam is cleared, completely, but the message will not go away. Could it be a jam sensor issue? If so, how do you fix it?

I DONT KNOW WHAT HAPPEN MY PRINTER THE MODEK IS HP LASERJET 3015, THE ERROR MESSAGE WAS, PRINTER JAM CLEAR PAPAER PATH, PLEASE HELP ME TO FIX MY PROBLEM HOW TO SOLVE IT


The laserjet 3015 has a weird issue with the logic board. The paper jam is caused by some sensor issues with the logic board. Some issues may not be fixable. The 2009 series of this printer should be under warranty from HP to get a proper board. On the converse, you could try thicker paper; and set your paper thickness on the printer. If you can open the top cover and then close it; it will reset the sensor.

Carriage Jam problem. Have gone through complete troubleshooting routine, but the message just won't go away. Says ""Carriage Jam". No debris to left or right of carriage. In fact, the jam was in the paper...


This 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.

Error message= open door clear carriage jam and


I think the message is instructions, as in
(1) open door (2) clear carriage jam (3) press enter
So there is something internal to the printer that makes it think it has a carriage jam, piece of paper under a sensor, dirty or stuck sensor.
If you can't find it using a bright light, try canned air.

Printer says jammed , cleared printer completely, still says jammed , no evidence of jam,disconnected printer, reconnected, ,still says jammed,


The possible reasons for this could be
  1. (For Laser Printers Only) Toner sediment in the fuser unit. This specially occurs if you constantly use smaller paper sizes than the paper tray size. To resolve this you should disassemble the printer, take out the fuser unit and clean the toner sediment. The sediment can get rock solid so clean it carefully. If you are not accustomed with electronic components better visit a technician.
  2. The paper sensors pulling spring may be detached. In this case the sensor gets a message that some paper exists in the fuser unit so a paper jam message is triggered. Fix the spring and you are done.

Lexmark x6575 printer error message clear paper jam


Success and relief at last!

Thanks to Dinky on another web site who had the same problem with his Lexmark X6575 printer (a similar printer). The resolution of the problem once I had read Dinky's explanation took less than 30 seconds!

Dinky's exact words on the issue are as follows:

" Dinky commented 5 months ago
Hooray!!!...after lots of hours trying to fix my printers 'Paper Jam' message, even tho' there was no paper jam in my lexmark x6575, but the message refused to go away...I have finally got it to work!!!...

WHAT I DID......
There is a long silver metal bar that the ink cartridges run along. Well just underneath this there is 8 little roller feet that sit on top of another silver/cream roller. Well in between these, in the very centre, you will see a little black plastic nib like thingy...While the machine is turned on, press this little black thingy (best to use a pen or something like, as it's small) and what should happen is the silver/cream roller will make a quick rolling motion....Hey! presto the 'jam message' disappears and the lcdmag-glass_10x10.gif screen should show set-up options (like date, time, ect).

I hope these instructions are clear enough to follow, and I also hope this solves that dreaded 'Paper Jam' message for you all....Good Luck!
Regards, Dinky "

Display ... ''clear paper jam''


First clear the possible paper jam using a air blower on the rollers and sensors most possible cause is the paper dust which block the sensors. then do a power cycle by unplugging the cable and leave it turned off for 5 mins and then reconnect, it should take care of the issue.

usually it means that a sensor in your fuser is bad. If you have a P.M. Kit replaced the fuser and clean the printer.

but before you do, make sure that you have cleared all jams, including in the fuser.

Its probably time for a Preventive Maintanence
