Richie, I ve had the same message and was wondering why: You have to open the printer.You will find rest of paper near the left side gear wheels(where powercord is pluged in) which cant be seen from outside. Another point is that the encoder strip (foil paralell to printhead belt) might be out of position. The jammed paper hamight had pushed the encoder out of position. the encoder strip has to be fixed upon the printhead.

Rear Paper Jam - No paper present.

Look for a small piece of paper that may be stuck in the switch indicating a paper jam.

check all areas for any paper jam, also check the feed roller in the paper trays if the roller are slick with paper dust, clean them and then reinstall the paper. Sounds like a paper sensor is not been cleared. then the error message, should go away on reboot.

Paper Jam Error 381

Most of the time the jam will be behind the printer. Open up the back door and see if you see any paper stuck in on the roller. Also remove the printer cartridge by pulling on the piece sticking out. Easily slides back in, so no sweat on that part. Let me know if you have already tried these methods.
If that doesn't work. Unhook the Data cable on the back of the printer, shut the printer off, and unplug the power cable from printer. Wait about 3 minutes and plug everything back in and turn back on the power switch. This should erase the queued errors.

Paper wont feed then says paper jam

Got rid of my problem!

In an act of despair I started to poke around the inside of the printer with a wooden match. Especially I found a small black lever mentioned on a Dell web site (general paper jam help page) that could be pressed a little. It is placed just a little bit right of center behind the carriage and just above the roll that feeds the paper beneath the printer heads. I'm not sure if this was what finally did it, but now the paper jam problem has gone away.

Another thing I noticed is that my carriage is now moving to center when I open the top. When the paper jam error was present it always moved to the far left (so I could remove any jammed paper, I suspect)
