Re: MF-8170C REC. PAPER JAM and Open Cover

Get a thick piece of paper and feed it in to the printer following the paper path the best you can until you get the piece of paper you can't see out of it.

I had a paper jam. Got the paper out, but now

Some printers won't reset the jam condition until you open a specific door or cover -- even if you've gotten the jam out, they think it's still there until you open that cover. Try opening and closing all of the machines doors and access points, and even pull out the paper tray and push it back in.

If the jam condition still isn't cleared, turn the machine off and back on with the main power switch.

Error 002 with Canon image class MF 8180 C

I usually open the back cover, top cover, cartridge cover and pull out the paper tray. Sometimes this clears the alarm, if this does not clear the alarm, I unplug the printer for a couple minutes. Between opening and closing the covers and unpluging the printer, the alarm goes away. Ray

Paper jam

Paper jam means that the rotation of the roller is not smooth, either because you are not inserting the paper correctly or there is something stuck in the printer. What you have to do is open the back cover of the printer and check the roller and clean it. Then if still paper jam is there, then it's manufacturing problem. Contact manufacturers.

laser printers dont use ink.
you will have to check the sensors. first the one where you put the media (paper) then check the registry one (remove the cartridge and you should see it) then the fixing on, from the back it has a small cover you can open an dthen a pair of green coloured levers to remove any jammed paper in fixing (the hot ***'y) then check the delivery sensor right where normally you see the page printed out and coming your way. there should not be any media remains anywhere. also if you copier is dirty it may also be causing this. try to clean it with compressed air.

Cannot find paper jam ...

We have a D780, which is probably very similar to your unit. Have you removed your toner cartridge and inspected to see if any paper is in the paper path? 95% of the time that is where the paper jam is.
