Two possible causes.

1. There is paper jammed in the purge unit or on the left side of the machine. Move the print head by hand to the centre of travel and look inside at the ends of the head travel path. You might see paper jammed in there.

2. If there is no paper, you will have to take the machine apart and check the encoder strip on top of the head. It should fit into a slot on top of the head. If it is not in the slot, carefully reseat it into the slot, reassemble and test.

There are other more remote causes but those are the two common ones.

Why do i have a false jam reading?


I understand that you're receiving what you believe to be a 'false' paper jam on your HP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One Printer. I would like to work with you today with resolving this issue. Paper jams can be real or false. The product might report a paper jam even when there is no jammed paper. A false paper jam may also be the result of having a bad paper jam at a point in time and that bad jam causing a hardware issue to the paper sensor or rollers. I am going to provide you with some additional troubleshooting steps that apply to both real and false paper jams. You did state that you already checked the paper pathway inside the printer and failed to find any evidence of paper being stuck, but please run the step-by-step troubleshooting below, even if you have already run some of the steps.

Here are the steps for clearing the path:

Paper jam on screen will not reset


To clear the error message Paper Jam after you removed the jammed paper, open and close the scanner cover.
If you still receive the error message, a small piece of paper may be stuck inside your Brother machine.

Refer the below link for the steps to remove any ripped paper remaining inside your Brother machine:

Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer: i get the message "print unable 36" displayed on m...


Error code 36 is generally because of a paper jam that was not cleared. Remove the rear jam cover (the plastic cover in the back center of the machine)and the paper tray and check for any pieces of paper. Sometimes just a scrap will remain, but it's enough to cause the machine to not work.

Once you've replaced the covers, if the jam code does not reset, turn the machine off and then back on.

Message says Paper Jam, but there is no paper


Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

202.01 and 202.03 Paper Jam


The 202.03 error code has to do with an early life failure of the fuser. Try replacing the fuser. If that doesn't work, a tech is needed to replace rear door. Don't forget to reset maintenance counts when you replace fuser!!

Epson R320 "General Error" message - unable to clear


If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your Epson printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Fix 'Carriage Jam' : Open Door, clear carriage jam,
and then press OK to continue' error message
Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

Paper jam 11


Step1
Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred. 
Step
2
Turn off the printer. 
Step
3
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper. 
Step
4
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge. 
Step
5
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it. 
Step
6
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A). The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam. 
Step
7
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though. 
Step
8
Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on. 
Step
9
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.

Paper jam, and I don't see any piece of paper inside, but the priner show me an error, PAPER JAM all the time. the printer is a brother MFC-240c thanks


I had the same problem.  I had removed all the visible paper and when it came back on made some awful noises and flashed "paper jam".
I even moved the roller forward and backward (after having uplugged the device.  I did this repeatedly and the "paper jam" alert continued (along with the awful noise).
As a last resort I thought I would just take it apart and hope to get it back together but figured it was a sensor or something along that line if I could not find any paper anywhere 

with the machine unplugged (it would not shut down), I opened the lid I used a flashligt to look around trying to figure out how to take it apart.
It then dawned on me that I had not moved the print head over and using a screwdriver I gently pushed it to the center of the bar.  When I looked inside with a flashlight, there was the paper jam way inside under the cover.
I used some needlenose to reach in and took the paper out and it is now working fine.
I hope this helps, but you may have to search really deep into the device.
