I have a ESP7 all in one printer. The error says Paper Jam, no error number. The problem is there is no paper jam...I believe the problem exsits with the printhead it is not moving to the center, there...


There may be three things that are causing your printer to report a paper jam error when there is no apparent paper jam.

1) The printer is picking up the paper feed as a jam

Remove all the paper from the printer. Turn the printer off at the mains for 30 seconds. Turn it on and try printing with just 1 piece of paper in

2) There may be a bit of paper stuck on one of the sensors inside the printer.

Open the top of the printer and look very carefully around the rollers at the edges and manually turn them to check if there is any small bits of paper

3) There may be dust on one of the sensors.

Open the printer and blow inside it or ideally use a can of compressed air to clean the printer.

I have a Pixma IP1700. It will not print and does not feed paper and then rings up the message "remove paper jam push restsrt key. Nothing starts and no paper feeds. There is no papaer jam as no paper was...


Thanks for using FixYa. First, verify that there is actually no paper jam (open all the doors, take out the paper tray, take out the cartridges and visually inspect). Turn printer off and unplug the printer from all cables (power, USB, etc). Try to hold it upside down and gently shake it so that if there is any paper inside it’s removed. If still it’s not resolved then clean the print head. To clean the print head take a hot water towel with the printer unplugged and the cartridges out, clean it till the time you see there is no ink residue on the towel. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Printer indicates paper jam every few pages, but there is no paper anywhere in the paper path. If I open the top cover and close it, it will print a few more pages, then indicate another paper jam

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

242.13 paper jam error We cannot find any paper jammed in the paper


The paper jam error 242.13 can be caused by an actual paper jam in the printer but since you did not find any paper the next thing would be pickup rollers. The pickup rollers can become worn and if they don't grap the paper right it will not more from the tray. There is a sensor that tells the printer that the paper exiting the paper tray and to start the printing. If this sensor does not detect paper when it should be there it gives a "paper jam" error thinking the paper is jammed. Look at the top page of paper for 1 or 2 light gray marks. If you see them then the rollers are the problem. You can see the rollers if you turn the printer on its side and remove the paper tray. To test the pickup rollers you can take off the rubber rollers( they look like white rubber band) from the wheel and turn them inside out, this will work as a temp fix untill you can get them replaced. If you need them replaced we can provide them or you can call a local repair show. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

HP 2600n Ironing transfer paper jammed around top roller

It is probably stuck permanently, and the fuser will need to be replaced. I believe the "fuser replacement" instructions are in the manual.

Paper Jam

are you using the right type of paper? also check to make sure there is no paper stuck in the back or the top rollers, make sure printer isn't dirty, if the rollers are dirty clean them with a damp cloth, reset the printer. if these simple Troubleshooting steps don't work you might have to call your warranty company if you have a warranty on the printer. also if there is paper stuck then get the paper out and reset the printer as i said before

Paper got stuck in Konica Milolta magicolor 2400w

I had the same problem and this worked, although it is not the answer to your question:

Take a standard manila file folder and cut it to the basic shape of a standard piece of paper. When you lift the top cover on the under side you will see a diagram on how to pull the paper out in the case of a paper jam. Feed you file folder up from the bottom and you will ~ with a little work, more than likely be able to clear the jam.

Paper jam

There is an end of form sensor in the paper path that is likely stuck or the rollers cannot turn due to some other Jam. The machine will throw that message if those two mechanisms cannot function. Look for debris in the printer - give it a good shake.

Won't print - says 'paper jam 2' but no paper is stuck in machine

Paper jam 2 error code is saying the jam is in the fuser area of the machine.
You need to remove the toner cartridge, and since you said you've taken the whole thing apart, maybe try a flashlight and look for a LITTLE piece of paper that may have torn off that remains stuck around that fuser area (the fuser is the thing behind the toner that gets hot-- so be careful -- but look in the corners and anywhere a small piece of paper could have torn and got stuck.

If you're absolutely sure that there is nothing stuck, I'd try to do a hard-reset: Turn off the machine, unplug the power cord and the cable that goes to your computer (if it's hooked up to one. And if it is hooked up to a computer, power down the computer as well.) Wait a minute or two, plug the computer back in, plug the power cord and cable from the printer back in, then turn on the printer and the computer and let them both go through their various start-ups.

If none of that works, let us know.. but from what I know and the docs I have access to, it should work... (fingers crossed!)

Good Luck!
