Paper jams can be real or false. The all-in-one may report a paper jam when there is not any jammed paper, however, the solution to a real paper jam or a false paper jam is the same. Up-grading the printer firmware could also fix this kind of issue, however I would appreciate if you try the steps below before you up-grade the printer firmware.
To fix the paper Jam errors please try the following steps:
1. Confirm that no foreign materials are inside the machine.
2. Confirm that usable paper is set.
3. Confirm that the paper is set properly.
4. Confirm that recommended paper is used, and the number of sheets set does not exceed the required limit.
5. Disconnect the printer power cord as well as the printer cable form the printer.
6. Turn the printer upside down and shake the printer in order to remove any obstacle which is stuck inside the printer causing the paper jam error.
Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges and check carefully if there is any small piece of paper which is stuck inside, if so carefully remove it.
7. Disconnect the printer power cord and press and hold the power button on the printer for about 15 to 20 seconds( this will release the flee power) and reconnect the printer and check.
If the above mentioned steps do not fix the issue please up-grade the printer firmware form the Support.dell.com web site. However make sure that you do not turn off either your printer or computer when you are downloading and installing the printer firmware.
Alternately you can also try to download the and install the printer drives form the support site if the paper jam message is being displayed on the computer’s screen but not on the printer’s LCD screen.
Should you require any further assistance regarding the printer or even any other computer related issue please feel free to contact me I will be more than glad to assist you.

there is a flag in the output bin that lets the printer know when there is too much paper on top of the printer and it stops so that the papers do not continue to feed out and overflow.
Either the flag is stuck in the up position, in which case you can just gently move it so it is hanging straight down, or the flag has been broken off and no longer functional ( in which case the flag and/or sensor would need to be replaced).

This error is caused by the the flap on the right hand side of the output tray (the tray the paper feeds into once it has printed). It becomes stuck in the up position and sends a false positive error to the printer. One "work around" for this is to tape a quarter to the plastic flap. This keeps the flap in a down position, thus negating the false positive. The other option is to call dell laser printer tech support to get it fixed. <If it is still under warranty>

give this a try
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

If you mean that the print cycle starts, but the "Paper Jam" lights up at the point where the paper starts to enter the drum, here's what I found worked.
The rollers that feed the paper come down onto the clean sheets on a plastic, spring-loaded arm Those rollers sometimes get too slick after a lot of use and they won't push the paper up and into the drum -- they slip like worn tires.
Solution: slip the rubber "tires"off the plastic roller "wheels" and reverse them, inside-out. Put them back on the wheels and the new rubber surface will probably push the paper just fine.
To do this you have to turn the machine upside down and remove the paper tray. I would unplug the unit and remove the drum as well before trying this.
