Remove the tray and check the wire you mentioned, that it is connected to the paper end sensor.
Probably the paper end sensor has its plastic legs broken.
If so, replace the paper end sensor and you will solve the error message.

Good luck and please rate me, thanks.

There may be an obstruction inside the printer. Try this....remove the paper from the paper tray and put paper in the handfeed tray (front of the machine) If it feeds from that tray it means that the feed rollers in the bottom cassette are worn.

The problem you are facing is a hardware issue try power cycling the printer by taking out the power cable and wait for 3 minutes and try to turn it back on if the issue still persists contact the manufacturer.

SOURCE: Ricoh copy machine 3025 paper jams every time we try to print

If the sheet of paper is damaged there may be a blockage in the paper path. If the path is cleared and it still damages the paper then the feed rollers could be worn. Question for you, when the paper gets damaged does it fan up like an accordian? if so there is an issue in the fuser section. Hop this helps

I have a HP LaserJet 1312nfi that is giving me a FALSE paper jam message. I repeat - FALSE PAPER JAM IN BACK DOOR. False false false. I have uninstalled it on my computer and nothing. I have opened it...


Hello Chris! Welcome to FixYa!

If you are facing False Paper Jam error in your HP Laser Jet 1312nfi but If you cant see any obvious paper jams, try to look closely into the rollers or the inside. There could be some tiny paper shreds stuck within those rollers. Or there could be a tiny piece of paper blocking the printer's sensor and thus giving you a false paper jam error.
The rollers should be cleaned if the paper fails to feed smoothly into the unit. All document and media rollers should be cleaned using a lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water.

1. Turn Off the printer and unplugged power before cleaning the rollers. This will allow the rollers to be turned by hand in most cases.
2. Remove the rear access door to access the rollers. Clean any dust and debris from the rollers.
3. Open the back of the printer and check metal paper rollers (not the rubber rollers) in the interior of the printer. They should be clean and move freely. If these are not bright and shinny or have buildup on them, they should be cleaned. Also clean any dust and debris off of the rubber rollers.
4. Close the back cover and reattach the rear access door.
5. Plug the power cord back in and power the unit up. It should reinitialize for about 20 seconds.
6. Print another extended self-test page.
After following these steps carefully, False Error message will be disappeared.
I hope this solution helps you
Let me know if you have any confusion in your mind.


Sir, Your Rating as FIVE Stars for this solution and words of appreciation will be esteemed

Thank You for taking my service

The printer is constantly sending a message- 'paper jam'


HP Officejet 7200, 7300, and 7400 Series - 'Paper Jam: Clear jam, and then press Enter' Message Displays on the Control Panel Display
Issue
During printing, the paper becomes stuck in the all-in-one and the error message 'Paper Jam: Clear jam, and then press Enter' displays on the control panel display.
Solution
Use the following instructions to clear a paper jam from the product:
Step one: Check for and remove any loose paper from the In tray
Do not try to remove jammed paper from the In tray. First remove any loose paper from the In tray to avoid worsening the jam.
CAUTION: Always try to remove jammed paper from the back of the printer first to avoid mechanical damage.
Step two: Clear the jam from the back of the printer
Follow these instructions to clear jammed paper from the back of the product. If the product is equipped with a two-sided printing accessory, skip to that section.
Remove the rear access door to clear the paper jam

1. Remove the rear access door by pressing the buttons on the side of the door and pulling it toward you.
Figure 1: Removing the rear access door
Rear access door
2. Gently pull the jammed paper out of the rollers.
WARNING: If the paper tears while removing it from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the product. If all the pieces of paper are not removed from the product, more paper jams might occur.
3. Replace the rear access door. Gently push the door into the all-in-one until it snaps firmly into place.

Remove the two-sided printing accessory to clear the paper jam

1. Remove the two-sided printing accessory by pressing in the buttons on the sides and then pulling the accessory toward you.
Figure 2: Removing the two-sided printing accessory
2. Gently remove any jammed paper.
WARNING: If the paper tears while removing it from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the accessory. If all the pieces of paper are not removed from the accessory, more paper jams might occur.
3. Press the button on top of the two-sided printing accessory to open the door.
Figure 3: Opening the two-sided printing accessory door
4. Gently pull the jammed paper out of the rollers.
5. Close the accessory door.
6. Reinstall the two-sided printing accessory.

Step three: Clear the jam from the automatic document feeder (ADF)

1. Remove the document feeder tray from the product by gently pulling it.
2. Lift the cover of the automatic document feeder by pulling it outward.
Figure 4: Lifting the cover of the automatic document feeder
Automatic document feeder (ADF) door
3. Gently pull the jammed paper out of the rollers.
WARNING: In the rare occurrence of a severe paper jam, you might need to remove the face plate from the front of the automatic document feeder and lift the pick assembly to remove torn pieces of paper from deep inside the automatic document feeder.
4. Close the cover of the automatic document feeder, and then reattach the document feeder tray.

Step four: Verify that the print carriage can move freely
Follow these steps to try to move the print carriage.
CAUTION: Do not force the print carriage to move if it is out of plain view or feels stuck. Forcing it may damage the printer.

1. With the product turned on, open the print cartridge access door. The print carriage might try to move into the access area. If so, allow it to move to that position.
2. Without turning off the product, unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Unplug the power cord from the power source. The power cord must be unplugged to allow the parts to be moved by hand and to reset the paper feed mechanism, without the risk of an electrical shock.
3. Looking in through either the print cartridge access door or the output paper tray, make sure the print cartridges are locked into the carriage and have not come loose. Also, make sure that there are no obstructions under or around the carriage to block it from moving.
4. Make sure the print carriage can move freely across the width of the product by gently pushing the carriage to the left and then to the right. Clear any obstructions found.
You may have to reach through the output paper tray to access the print carriage.
5. Close the print cartridge access door and plug the power cord back to the back of the product. Plug the power cord into the power source.
6. Press the On button to turn on the product.

Step five: Reload and test the printer
After you have removed the jammed paper, make sure the product is still functioning properly.

1. Reload the product with plain paper.
2. Peform a self-test by pressing and holding the RESUME button on the control panel until the product begins printing. A test page prints.

Step six: Service the printer
If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.

When a paper jam occurs, the printer will stop printing and the Continue (1) and Paper Jam (2) lights on the operator panel will come on. See the illustration below.
pattlnk_1052005_1635-enus20238_oppaneljamlights_e230_en_us.gif When you experience a paper jam, it is recommended that you check and clear the entire paper path. To clear a paper jam, do the following:
  1. If you are feeding paper from a paper tray, first remove the tray. Look for and remove any jammed or damaged paper you find.

    pattlnk_1052005_1636-enus20238_removepaperjam_e230_en_us.gif
  2. Open the front cover and remove the print cartridge assembly.

    IMPORTANT!
    Do not leave the print cartridge assembly exposed to direct light, especially sunlight, for an extended period of time. Extended exposure to light will damage the green photoconductor roller and cause print quality problems.

    pattlnk_1052005_1639-enus20238_removecartridge_e230_en_us.gif
  3. Remove any paper you find jammed in the area behind the print cartridge assembly.

    pattlnk_1052005_1645-enus20238_removepaperjam2_e230_en_us.gif
  4. Also lift the flap at the front of the printer and remove any paper you find jammed beneath the flap.

    pattlnk_1052005_1646-enus20238_removepaperjam3_e230_en_us.gif
  5. Open the rear exit door/cover of the printer and remove any jammed paper you find there.

    pattlnk_1052005_1647-enus20238_removepaperjamrear_e230_en_us.gif
  6. Once you have confirmed that the entire paper path is clear, reinstall the print cartridge assembly. Close all the printer covers/doors. Reinstall any paper trays you removed.
  7. Press the Continue button to resume printing. NOTE: The printer should reprint the page(s) that caused the paper jam.
  8. If the paper continues to jam, press the Continue button twice quickly while the Continue and Paper Jam lights are on. This will cause the operator panel to display the secondary error paper jam light sequence. The secondary error code will tell you where the printer thinks the problem has arisen. For more information, see the 'Secondary Error Codes' section on page 69 of the User's Guide.

HP Laserjet 1020: False paper jam


Hp false paper jam error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

Sounds like you may need to replace the pick up rollers on the machine.  Without knowing exactly where the jam error happens during the print process, it's hard to say.
