I open the lid, don't see anyting, close it, press the resume button and the printer thinks its fine and that paper is in there and the ink goes back and forth like its really printing on paper. why won't it feed the paper the rest of the way?

Ok, you will have to preform a hard reset by unplugging this printer and let stand for five minutes. plug back in the socket after this period and restart the unit. if the problem persist, you will need to download the new drivers and firmware on the manufactures website.

How do I get rid of paper jam that stays on even if nothing jammed


My guess is that there is a piece of paper somewhere blocking a light beam or in a contact switch.
Try a little air if you can't manually feed a sheet of paper. Use the heaviest bond you have.

HP deskjet 1056 won't feed paper


I just fixed mine. The paper would feed part way then jam and twist a little off center. When I pulled the paper out there was a crinkle on the bottom edge, left side, about 2 or 3 inches in. I did some looking with the scanner removed a saw a plastic tab like the ones that hold and feed 1 sheet at at time. This tab was located inside a little "box-like" thing on the underside of the printer. I turned the printer over. There are several openings/ holes in the 'box'. You can take a pencil or similar object and slide a flat 'tab' that is inside the 'box'. You will see a small spring in one of the holes. Slide the flat tab toward the spring until it locks in place. My printer now works fine. To me the 'box' mechanism looks suspiciously identical to an analog counter wheel. If it is, then it is counting the pages and then engaging the tab to cause a paper jam so you will buy a new printer. Similar things happen electronically to my HP psc 1210 & my Officejet 5610. They will stop scanning or printing, give "no cartridge" error codes, etc... I unplug them for a few weeks and it's like they are new again. PS, if the printer can't talk to HP it will work longer.

PRINTER IS JAMMED SHOWING ERROR


I had a similar problem, my printer was chewing the paper and then I was getting a jammed paper message. I looked inside but couldn't see much anything. I then removed (unscrewed) all the panels, and next I know, a culprit materialized, in other words, something fell inside the printer. I then managed to put it all back together, ended up with a few extra screws, but heck it works like a clockwork. God bless screwdrivers with magnetic tips, they made my life so easier.

You could try the following:
1.Unplug the printer and remove the paper tray.
2. Move the carriage all the way to the right.
3. Close the lid and plug the printer back in.
Wait until printer stop to cycle.
4. Open the lid. Carriage should return to nomal position.
5. Close lid and try printing again.

Brother MFC-8860DN All-In-One Laser Printer showing document jam error


Doc jam error usually means a jam in the adf (auto doc feed) when feeding a fax or doc to copy.

The most common reason brother mfc,s of this configuration have doc feed issues is believe it or not the hinge that operates the lid/adf, specifically the left side one (looking from the front). Inside the hinge there are two springs exerting tremendous force on the hinge (that enables the lid to stay up by itself) however this force eventually slowly breaks the fulcrum point of the hinge which leads to the lid not closing properly which means a sensor under the lid does not activate properly resulting in the adf stopping and resulting in the machine registering a jam. the difference between the sensor activating or not can be as little as a millimeter and is not often disernable. the hinge needs replacing by a techo.

the other reason could be you just have dirty adf feed rollers, clean them with a cotton rag dipped in metho, open the adf lid and give the rollers a scrub. the rollers should have 'tread' on them similar to a tyre, if not they are worn and need replacing.

One other possibility is there may be a paper fragment left over from a jam removal still caught in the paper path and activating a sensor activator that tells the machine paper is coming or going. most commonly in the section where the paper is looping on its return journey back out of the adf, open the adf lid, have a look with a torch and see how you go.

Regards, Andrew.

False "paper jam" signal prevents printing: My HP 2210 had been working fine. Suddenly, when I try to print, the paper starts to feed for a few inches and then stops. I get a "clear paper jam" error...


it's probably due to what i would call the print head blocker ( on your left handside of your printer head) that is broken . check it out! it also responsable to control how far goes the sheet before start printing.

Try two things:

Fan the paper before placing in the tray.

Raise the humidity in the room to at least 40% to avoid electrostatic sticking of the paper. Store paper in 40% humidity area.

My Brother HL-2040 paper led light won't stop flashing, the paper's not jammed or anything, I just put in a new toner, too. I tried doing what someone else said about opening the cover and holding Go until...


Hi. The reasons listed in the manual that cause the LED to flash normally are:

Front cover is open
Close the front cover of the printer.
Back cover is open
Close the back cover of the printer.
Paper jam
Clear the paper jam. See Paper jams and how to clear them on page 6-5.
If the printer does not start printing, press the Go button.
No paper fed manual feed slot
Put the paper in the manual feed slot. See Printing on plain paper, bond paper
or transparencies from the manual feed slot on page 1-10 or Printing on thick
paper, labels and envelopes from the manual feed slot on page 1-13.
Memory full
The printer memory is full and the printer cannot print full pages of a
document. See Solving print problems on page 6-15.
Print overrun
A print overrun occurred and the printer cannot print full pages of a document.
See Solving print problems on page 6-15.
Drum Error
The corona wire needs to be cleaned. See Cleaning the corona wire on page 5-14.

If you check out page 6-5 it tells how to clear the paper jam from the rear of the machine! A point often missed.

Check out the website below if you don’t have a copy of the instruction manual =

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/doc002089/US_Eur.pdf

If all else fails, try a reset of the printer Drum & Page counter:
  1. With printer tuned on.
  2. Press and hold the “internal button” behind front cover, until all LEDs illuminate.
  3. Make sure Drum light is off, then release and close front cover.
Hope some of this helps………..Please post a response back here and let us all know if it works?............Regards, Cornwellnet (UK)

Paper keeps getting jammed in MP460


I had the same paper feed grabbing problem on pixma MP 610 printers - take a flashlight and look down into the feed rollers inside - deep - I found a paperclip in one and a hair clip in another - you need a pair of very fine pincer pliers to extract so you dont damage the roller assembly's made of plastic - and voila no more misfeeds and grabbing on the right side - hint - dont put anything on top of the printers because when you lift the scanner cover, it nicely slides anyting on top into the paper feed assembly and results in a jam
