Printer keeps jamming even after clearing jam

Hi, most paper jams like this are caused by something inside the printer called a "pickup roller" which is a series of rubber tube/grippy things that are responsible for moving the paper through the printer. If these rollers are dirty or worn down, they don't grip the paper properly and end up causing jams. In larger, more expensive printers, they have maintenance kits that you can buy to replace rollers, fusers, and other commonly replaced parts - but it's probably not practical for this model of printer. You may want to try opening the printer as much as you can (without removing screws) and using compressed air and a lightly-damp-with-alcohol cotton-swab to clean the rollers and other parts that touch the paper.

Printer gives mesasage of jammed paper and will not print

Hi Pedro,
This means the printing paper maybe stuck.
  • Turn the printer off and on.This sometimes clears jam automatically.In case it doesn't:-
  • You need to gently pull the paper out from the rear tray or from the output slot.
  • In case it tears,turn the printer off and open the printhead cover and remove the papers carefully not to touch anything inside.Close the cover.
  • Load printing papers again and press RESUME on the printer to print queued print jobs.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

My Epson 1400 wont pull the paper through when I hit the print button. But when I insert a sheet of photo paper and hit outside printer button it will pull thepaper through but wont print


First off, the simplest solution is to try to clean the rollers of dust. If you can access the rollers, especially while they are spinning, this would be best. Get a damp cloth either with water or rubbing alcohol and wipe the rubber down, and retest your machine. Most of the time this is cause by the paper pickup rollers, which are made out of plastic or rubber, getting too dirty/slick to properly pick up the paper. Remove all the paper and the paper tray if you can. Using a long qtip, clean the rollers with alcohol. If that doesn't work, or can't be done with your printer, take all the paper out but one sheet. Spritz some alcohol on the bottom of that sheet and smear it out so it covers the entire width of the paper up about 2 inches. Then try to print a document that is a blank page. After either of these methods wait at least 4-5 minutes for all the alcohol to dry before trying to print again.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

I have a problem with our ricoh printer at work. It is a ricoh aficio AP410N, and the serial # is Q3256500416. It keeps getting paper jams and nothing will print. I called tech support a month ago and all...

Did you try to start with a new pack of paper? Laser printers are very sensitive to humidity of the paper, or a little curled paper. You can start to turn the paper that is in the engine right now upside down. Sometimes this will help. If this doesn't work, than take a closed, new box/package of paper and try again. You might have an environmental problem with your paper. If it works well with the new package, try to store the paper on a better place (not at a window/heater/in a closed box/package etc.)

Brother HL 1250 Laser Printer Alarm light blinks at same time as ready light and printer does not print - why?

I have saeen this happen and there is usually a paper jam somewhere in the machine. Remember, it doesn't take much of a piece of paper to jam. Use a flashlight and look inside your printer closely. Also check your toner supply level.
