I have opened the printer several times, but cnnot see any remaining fragments of paper. What else can be cleaned to enable printing? Is there an accessible sensor to check?

Dell W5300 says paper jam - rear door. But there is no jam and it won't print.


We have two Dell with rear doors. Pull out the paper trays and look inside with a flashlight for any torn paper. Open the rear doo and look for paper just inside the rollers, or torn pieces at the edges where the sensor is.

Then close the door, cut the power and switch back on after 10 seconds.

This is yours

Clear the paper jam message but there is no paper jam


Hi
To clear the paper jam check for any visible paper jams. If there are none then remove the toner cartridge and inspect for any bits of paper stuck under there. Hold the printer upside down and try and shake it gently to remove small bits of paper. Open the rear door of the printer and try to find any visible paper stuck. After this turn on the power to the printer. Hope this helps... Please post back if more help is required.

Fixing a printer paper jam
When working with any printer it's inevitable that you'll encounter a paper jam. Below are the steps you'll want to follow when this occurs.

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Inspect the location or tray the printed paper ejects to. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
  3. Remove all paper trays and any paper that may be stuck between the tray and the printer. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
  4. Open the printer door that allows you access to the printer ink cartridges or toner and look for any stuck paper. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
  5. Turn the printer back on. If you continue to receive a printer jam error try repeating the above steps again. If issue still persist and you see no paper that is stuck in the printer it's likely your printer is experiencing another hardware issues and we suggest contacting the printer manufacturer for additional assistance and/or repair.

* To manually remove paper pull on the paper with both hands being careful not to tear the paper while pulling it. If you're unable to get to an edge of the paper that allows you to pull it you may need to manually rotate the gears that feed the paper through the printer.

Preventing a printer paper jam
As mentioned earlier it is inevitable that you will encounter at least one paper jam during the life of your printer. However, if you're encountering frequent paper jams following the below steps can help prevent paper jams from occurring.
  • If your printer has a paper tray do not fill the tray to capacity. If you're encountering frequent paper jams reduce the amount of paper you place in the tray each time it is filled.
  • Make sure you or the tray feeding the paper into the printer is aligned properly and/or the slider used to hold the paper in place in the tray is snug with the paper. Many printers have sliders that allow different types and sizes of paper to be fed into the printer. If the slider is not properly positioned it can cause paper jams.
  • Use standard office paper; folded paper, paper with labels, and specialty paper such as hard bound paper can often cause paper jams. If you're uncertain with what type of paper you should use with your printer your printer documentation will list the types of paper compatible with your printer.
  • Do not mix the types of paper you're feeding into the printer at one time. If you need to change the type of paper or size of paper being used removed any other paper currently in the printer before inserting the new paper.
  • Examine the printer for any previous stuck paper in the printer. Previous paper jams, torn paper, printing labels or other foreign objects in the printer can cause reoccurring printer jams.

Please post your feedback and Vote if the poblem resolved as per your satisfaction.
