Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

The paper sensor is either stuck or dirty.
Just open it and follow the paper path and you should see where it is.

Otherwise, the sensor may be bad.

Hi there
Brother 4F
Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart, hopefully without the annoying cannot clean message.


All I ask is please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Canon Pixma iP 6600D printing problem.. went to print a scanned document .... paper began to feed in askew from autopaper feeder . Printing process stopped. the process was repeated a couple more times...


To fix the paper feed problem, Clean / rub each roller with a damp cloth with a dab of detergent.
Check for paper residue , especially near the paper empty flag,
Then reset the printer:
First power off the printer. Next, while holding STOP/RESET button, power on the printer.
While holding POWER button, release STOP/RESET button. Then push STOP/RESET button twice.
Wait about 20-30 second until the LED shows "0?. Then push STOP/RESET button four times.
Finally push POWER button twice. Last step is to turn off the printer by pressing the POWER button one last time.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

Thanks, Joe

Paper jam


you need to remove the jammed paper, you may need to take the printer apart as much as possible to get it all out, the manual generally has instructions on clearing a jam do you have the manual do you need it?

Hi when you switch it on have you tried holding down the on off button for about 10 seconds as this often resets most printers.
Also when you sya thier is no paper jammed in printer are you absolutely sure their is not even i tiny bit of paper still stuck as it only takes a tiny bit of paper to make this message appear.
If you are confident in removing the paper feed witch is difficult to do as you need to make sure it goes back perfect as if it isnt the paper wont feed.
Alot of people say their is no paper jammedand they call somebody out to repair the printer and they get charged a fortune for removing a tiny bit of paper.
If holding the button down dont work then try switching the plug on whilst holding down the on off button let me know how you get on ok

I have an epson stylus photo 1400, and i did somethign stupid and jammed some paper, and i would like to know how to remove it. i can see it, but i can't grab it, and i don't know if there's any way i can...


Hi there,

Well first of all you can try to reset your printer -
Turn off printer

Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power'
buttons for about 10 seconds.

A message will appear on the screen.
power off and back on for reset.

Try the following steps to clear any jam -

1. Clear any loose paper from the paper tray. This will help you locate the jam. You will find it either in front, near the paper tray, or in the rear.
2. To clear a paper jam near the paper tray, grip the paper and pull it firmly but gently from the printer. If you find a stack of papers jammed, grab from the middle of the stack and pull.
3. For a rear jam, remove the back of the printer. When you find a free edge on the paper, grip it firmly and pull it out. 
4. Replace the back cover. Press the "Resume" button or turn off the printer, and then turn it back on. Your settings should reset. 
5. Try printing another document.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

I CAN'T PRINT. A MESSAGE STATED CLEAR PAPER JAM AND PRESS OK. BUT THERE IS NO PAPER IN THE PRINTER. PLEASE HELP.


Try to clean the rollers of the printer. Then try to reset your printer by unplugging the power cord at the back of the printer while it is still on and then after 30 seconds plug it back in.

Hp 2355 all in one error message


reset to factory defaults, also check the whole printer for paper jams. A paper jam can often casue smaller pieces to get stuck in gears or rollers. The message about opening and closing the lid is how the printer knows you went in to check it and closeing it triggers it to try again. If thers still a jam it will keep giving the message. The fist jam was caused by something, check and make sure there isnt any pieces of plastic broken off inside. If it has a rear access panel, check there also.
