Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
My kodak ESP Office 2170 printer says theres a "paper jam" or "out of paper". but there is no such physical problem with the above mentioned. when printing the rollers spin but they do not pick up the paper. what could be the problem?
1. It could be a problem with the paper sensor ( a micro switch).
2. The tray holding the paper may have a defective spring causing the paper to not contact the rollers.
In the case of a "paper jam", there may be a label or just a piece of paper with some adhesive stuck in the path of the paper inside.
If the printer has a bypass tray, run a thick piece of card stock through the printer. You might be able to use a flashlight to inspect the paper path to detect any foreign material causing the "jam sensor to come on".
Be sure to use check the printer through the control panel...open the printers and select the printer properties using the right-click of the mouse and cancel all pending print jobs....
Restart the computer.
See if that helps....

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.

i had the printer jam issue when there wasnt a real printer jam.
if you push the print cartidges off to the right, then reach in and push down on the cleaning head that is located on the left on the inside, it pops back down into place and voila, printer jam error message fixed.
