SOURCE: paper gets jammed. Even shredding just one sheeet

The problem was solved by putting some oil on the top of the shredder and running the motor forward and in reverse to coat the teeth. Thank you.

SOURCE: Paper is stuck in the shredder, and it won't

This just barely happened to me - I used needle nose pliers and a kitchen butter knife. It took 30 min but it will come out. Good luck!

Hi, I have several jams in a ir canon 5000, in the vertical path with delay in the PS24 sensor. I exchanged that sensor getting the same result. Someone have had the same problem?

Doubt motor, suspect slipping paper feed roller in area just before ps24 area, or slipping clutch or obstruction in paper path. Ensure your using fresh paper, not old as it curls and causes issues. Rare is it a motor fail, especially if issue is sometimes rather than everytime. Clean clean is usally the fix or most paper path problems. Paper dust often makes rollers and feed tires slip rather than grip. Cheaper paper gives off more paper dust and causes more wear. Slightly damp rag just with water on rubber rollers is the best tool.Good Luck.

Hi there I have a canon Pixma MX360. The printer got a paper jam and I have removed all the paper that was jammed in the printer, however when I press OK to confirm the paper has been removed the settings...

You must check carefully to make sure all paper is removed, even little pieces that may have been torn. Use a flashlight and check very carefully in the paper path, also look down the paper chute, and where the paper exits.

I had a paper jam and cannot remove all the jam Is there a way to get to the roller to remove the rest of the paper? thanks My printer is anHPphotoshop 7260

There will be a rear access panel that you remove to get to the paper to fix paper jams.
You should never try to clear a jam from the front of the printer.

Can't get it to work after a paper jam.

Inorder to remove the paper jam inside, you need to remove the toner cartridge first and then you can pull out the paper jammmed. If there is still paper jammed inside.

Paper jam

You are receiving this error message because there is a paper jam or the top (photo) tray is not securely in position and the printer cannot initialize. This error message can appear for an ESP 7, ESP 9, ESP 7250, or ESP 9250 all-in-one printer.
To resolve a paper jam, we have an easy Step-by-Step Solutions and Repair tool. Within the tool, select All-in-one printer, then Paper jam.

When you clear the paper jam:
  1. Make sure you open the paper output tray and inspect the top tray for photo paper that could be jammed inside or that remains in the nip at the entrance.
  2. Pull out the bottom paper tray and clear any paper jams.
  3. Remove the duplexer from the back of the printer and clear any paper jam.
NOTE: Curled photo paper could induce a paper jam. To prevent curling:
  • Store un-printed paper in a tightly closed plastic bag or in its original packaging.
  • Store sealed packages of paper flat, and not on
  • When you are ready to print, take only the paper intend to use immediately.
To remove curl in photo paper:
  1. Place the paper in a plastic bag or in its original packaging.
  2. Gently bend the paper in the opposite direction of the curl, then insert it into a tube-a paper towel tube works well.

    NOTE: The tube should be larger than 1.5 in. (4 cm) in diameter.
  3. After a few minutes, remove the paper from the tube.
  4. Remove the paper from the plastic bag or packaging.
  5. Verify that the curl has been removed from the paper. Repeat the steps above if necessary.
If the top paper tray is not securely in position and the printer cannot initialize (you may hear a grinding noise, and the top paper tray will not open), contact Kodak.
