Error caused by paper jam - but there's no paper jam

I had a paper jam, and tried to fix it by pulling out the paper. The paper is out, but now it displays a green E where it counts the number of copies and the resume indicator is blinking. When I hit the resume button to reset it, the printer adjusts for a second and then resumes its error status. What should I do?

Canon ImageClass MF3240 paper jam fix


The Canon ImageClass MF3240 continues to show "paper jam" error even if someone followed all the possible fix to remove the jam. After clearing the paper in all access doors (both front and back), the printer still gives the paper jam error. Also, if you have tried restarting the printer several times to no avail and the red light keeps blinking, here is the fix to what is most probably been causing the paper jam problem of Canon ImageClass MF3240.

1. Turn off the printer and pull out all plugs and power cord that is attached to your printer.

2. Remove the paper tray at the bottom and let the printer lie at its back so that you can see underneath.

3. Get a flashlight and look closely for the sensor located underneath the printer. The sensor is located in a small square hole, just above the small black plastic "lever" (looks like a small hockey paddle) on the left side of the gray rubber roller. Move the lever so that you can freely look closer on the hole.

4. Notice because there could be a tiny paper shred stuck inside and this causes the sensor to detect a paper jam.

5. Get a small tweezer to remove that paper out.

6. Next, let the printer stand normally and return the tray back.

7. Re-plug all cables and start your printer. That's it!

How do I fix a printer error


turn the printer off..then after a while it turn back on, the jammed paper will come out automatically if it doesn't pull the paper towards you not the other way pull it forward until it is totally outside the exit tray.. dont pull it on the feeding unit cause it will damage the feeder unit and the paper might tear apart leaving a piece of it inside that would be more difficult cause you have to open the entire printer unit.

Error oki b6100 e2


This error often comes when there an paper jam or paper tray 1 or paper tray 2 or 3 is empty,make sure that you have enough paper in the trays and secondly make sure that you have there is no paper jam in paper roller, even an tiny particle of paper can cause this error.

Please open all the access of your printer pull out all the paper trays and clean it properly with air blower, this can fix this error.

I am using Canon Pixma MP145. Paper gets jammed every time i want to print. Paper gets pulled in only from right side and it gets jammed, but printer does't show any error. I have to pull the paper...


When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

I had the Bro 8840D repaired following a paper jam. I am unable to get it to pull paper through. Says paper jam, but no jam exists. The tech repair shop said a switch had been flipped when the first jam...


okay, try this...clear the paper jam message and try to make a copy using the manual bypass (MP tray) located on front of machine. if copy comes through okay, then chances are you have a problem in main cassette area. pull cassette out, and make sure the rear stop inside cassette is not pushed too tightly against rear of paper stack. should leave about 1/8" gap. if thats okay, then sounds like you may need your paper pickup roller replaced. sounds like your repair shop just fixed the error, not the cause of the error.

Error message says"out of paper" when paper tray is fully loaded


check and make sure that the paper is in near the rollers enough that it senses the paper and picks it up. try lightly pushing the paper down toward the rollers as it is suppose to pull one sheet through the feeder. hopefully, you didnt pull too hard on getting the 'jammed' paper out that it may have caused a misalignment in the feeder. try assisting the paper, that usually fixes it. hope this helps!

My printer says I have jammed paper, but i cannot see the paper. How do I fix this?


without knowing the make and model of the printer, it is hard to answer this question.

a paper jam is detected by a printer in one of two ways. Either paper has not reached a sensor in the time it should have, or a sensor is blocked when it should not yet be.

Several things can cause this, one of which would be obvious, in that paper is actually jammed and blocking a sensor that should be open.

Another cause is that paper has not reached a sensor in time. This can be caused when a pickup roller is worn, and not actually pulling paper from the tray, so it sounds like it is working, but there is no paper to print on.

and finally another cause is a broken or malfuntioning sensor. In this case, you will not find any paper blocking a sensor, and is usually an instant failure when the unit is turned on it will automatically error out with a paper jam error. In my experiance, this is usually a broken paper exit flag on the fuser, caused by a paper jam being removed by pulling the paper out of the fuser backwards and breaking the flag.

Epson Stylus CX3200 ( loud noise like paper is jammed) error message comes up.


By pulling the paper out backwards your sister may have caused a gear to jump. You could try pulling a piece of paper out in the other direction and maybe the gear will jump back into place. Otherwise you will probably have to have the printer serviced.
