My printer has 241 paper jams quite often is there any thing to look for? It seems that the paper jam is when the paper is loading from the tray as I can't find any paper jam when I remove the tray.

Check the paper tray guides, check the the paper feed roller (remove the tray and look up in the printer) it is possibly worn and needs replacing, you can try to clean it (hand soap is as good as anything)

241 paper jam message


Lexmark T630 241 paper jam message - Indicates a paper jam from the pull down manual feed tray.


If you check to make sure and small fragments of paper are not hindering the operation of the switch. The switch is located on the left side of the tray and will be spring loaded. The switch should move freely without binding. Make sure no toner or dust is on the optical sensor assembly. See Diagram for location.

If the switch seems OK and the printer still reports an error, the printer will require professional care.

Hello I am getting a paper jam error #241 "check paper tray 1 "


DEAR SIR,
Some print media, although they may conform to size and weight specifications, may not perform to your expectations. Print quality, jam rates, fuser life, and output stacking can be affected by the printing environment (temperature and humidity) and characteristics of the paper (structure, moisture content, smoothness or thickness);
Duplex printing is not supporteD
Using Auxiliary tray is recommended

HOPE THIS HELPS....

Thank you sir,take care

Getting the message "241 Paperjam Check Tray 1" I've checked tray 1 and have not found a paper jam


Hi,
Turn the printer upside down and shake to find any paper jam as in most cases you will find some paper or dust falling out and then try.

I have a optras1855 printer and a message keeps coming up 241 paper jam check tray 1. the problem is there is no paper jam. i know this because i have another machine the same model and that does the same...


I'll bet that if you put a mark on the top sheet of paper in tray one and then send a print job or run a self test you will see that the paper stays in tray one. I suspect that you have a paper pick problem.

Worn or slick rollers can be one source or a weak tray supports. Also, take the paper out of tray one and fan the paper to break any static that may cause the paper to stick together.

Cannot print from main paper tray.


im just guessing here since i dont have enough information. either they tray is not being recognized as being there if this is the case check the snapin plate on the side of the tray to make sure it is installed. check the fingers to see if they have been broken.
clean or replace the pick wheels on the auto compensator

When printing paper continues to jam.


  1. Take out paper tray 1.
  2. Remove any jammed sheets of paper you find there.
  3. Once you have done this, reinstall the paper tray and try printing again.
    Note: You may receive a message informing you that another sheet of paper is jammed elsewhere in the printer. If so, please open the front door and remove the toner cartridge. Also open the rear door of the printer (and the duplex option if a duplex unit is installed). Remove any and all jammed sheets of paper you find. Then try printing again.
  4. If the printer jams again with a 241 Paper Jam error message, look to see if it has tried to feed a sheet of paper out of the tray.

Optra 2450 error 241


24X Paper Jam message displays, Paper jammed over the Pass
Thru Sensor. (The printer displays the value of X for the paper tray
where the error occurs. Example: 241 is a Paper Jam Tray 1)

That is a quote directly from the service manual. You have a paper jam, or some tiny bits of paper stuck over the pass thru sensor. Remove debris and clean out to fix your problem.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

OPTRA T610 NOT PRINTING FROM TRAY1


What happens is that the rubber roller that's supposed to pick paper up and load it in doesn't pull the paper from the tray anymore, hence it gives the paper jam error message. If you want you can replace that rubber roller to fix the problem, however first thing I do is to take that rubber roller out (remove tray and look underneath to find the roller) and turn it inside out then fit it back. This will give the rubber roller the grip that it missed and solve your problem.
