Re: clear misfeed (A) on display screen

There is a thin black plastic armature with a tiny flag on the end of it. that flag movement trips a switch everytime a copy passes over it. If this arm is not seated right, then the flag is not dropping between the switch and which is why the jam lite is staying on. if you open the right sided acess jam door and look straight in, down in the lower right corner you should see this small black box shaped switch, it has 2 thin white wires connected to it By removing the paper tray, you can reach in and try cleaning it with canned air if its not the arm and flag hung up, dust in it is causing the problem.

HP 3030 error message paper jam - clear papaer path. There is no paper in the machine. I have cleared and cleaned the machine, turned it off, waited 30 secondsand turnedit back on and still get the error...

This 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.

HP 3005dn Printer Tray 1 paper jam error

If message in display panel reads [13.XX PAPER JAM [LOCATION]]Media is jammed at the specified location (and possibly at other locations). If the message persists after all jams have been cleared, a sensor or sensor lever might be stuck or broken.
For all jam messages, do the following: 1. Remove jammed print media from the specified location. Check the entire paper path for other pieces of media in the path. 2. Open and close the top cover to clear the message. 3. Check sensors and flags in the paper path for proper operation.

For message 3.0 PAPER JAM [LOCATION]
A non-specific paper jam occurred.
1. Remove jammed media from the specified location. 2. Verify the paper tray is fully closed. 3. Inspect and/or replace the feed and separation rollers. 4. Ensure there is no obstruction in the path, such as a torn piece of paper. 5. Open and close the top cover to clear the message. 6. Check sensors and flags for proper operation.

My Ricoh GX 3050SFN displays the following error *Warning* Ppr Misfd: Int.Path Remove Paper I removed the jammed paper but the error hasn't cleared. I've power cycled the printer (about a 1000 times!)...

Welcome to Fixya.

It is possible that the feed clutch got dislodged or stuck. Locate the feed clutch in the printer and check. Also, remove the tray and locate the printer rollers. Clean it with cloth and winder. Rub it dry. Make sure there are no cloth fibers on the roller.

Hope this helps.

Paper jam from tray 1

If the paper jammed occasionally, it might be your pick up roller.

Misfeed trouble with sharp ar-337

Dear sir;I suggest you go to simulation mode 30 & 40 to find out which sensor got problem procedure as follow;
1, press "program", "interupt" "clear", "interupt"
2, enter 30, press "start", enter 01, pres start again,then all the sensor light in the paper path are on the abnormal one blinking.
3, repeat same step for 30 sub 02 that's for paper path in the feed section.
4, repeat same step for simulation 40 sub code 01,that's for by-pass paper path sensor.
After you done those procedure you will find out which sensor block out or defect, good luck.

Paper jam without any paper deskjet F370 all in one

Hi there,

Here is the most important thing to understand about paper jams in any printer....

The printer does not know if there is a paper jam anywhere in the printer.

What it does do, is respond to sensors ( optical sensors, either open or closed, by plastic flags). These flags are moved as paper moves through the paper path.

One example of a paper jam message when there is really no paper jam, is when the feed rollers are worn and do not pick up paper from the paper tray.

When you start printing, the printer expects that first sensor to open ( paper passes the sensor ) at a very specific point in time. If the paper did not get picked up from the tray, then the printer will ASSUME that the paper must be jammed somewhere because it did not reach it on time.

Now this will also happen if in fact the paper did get picked up and then jams prior to the sensor.

So... if you get the picture of how this works, understand then too, that if the printer is showing a paper jam message at power on, then one of the flags is open when it should be closed.

If you do not actually have a piece of paper holding this flag in the open position, then the flag is possible broken.

I usually see this kind of damage occur after a true paper jam, where the paper is removed either in the wrong direction ( pulled out back the way it was going instead of the way it should normally travel ), and this breaks the flag, or it was pulled out forcefully again, catching on and damaging the flag.

All of the above pertains to ANY printer, and not just yours. you must take care to fully inspect every inch of the paper path, from the paper tray, to the exit, use a flashlight, and look for the sensors and make sure they are not blocked or broken.

Good luck,

How do I clear misfeed.

In most cases where the machine says there is a jam, and there is no paper in the paper path, it's because the paper never got out of the paper drawer and didn't reach the 1st jam sensor. If you can open the machine and it resets, then chances are the paper feed roller is either slipping or in some cases not turning at all. If you can't clear the jam by turning off the machine, and back on, then you have a bad jam setect sensor or perhaps a small piece of paper lodged on the jam sensor. This will take some additional troubleshooting on your part. Need to know if the jam indicator goes away when you restart the machine. Let me know and I'll try to guide you from that point.
