Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
There is a little plastic lever/flag which detects the paper at the
rear, just after the heat section. I think on this model it can just
about be seen by opening the rear door, it should be in the middle of
the black lower paper guide section. The "flag" should be protruding
slightly to be activated when the paper passes. However if it is stuck
down (hence giving you false paper jam message) it will be more
difficult to see! Use a decent torch to help see.
pls do it carefully and if it works rate this solution.

Finally put a sheet in halfway through the manual feed slot
- had door open doing it so I could make sure sheet went far enough so that the little two-pronged black flag right at front of the paper feed opening was kept pushed down by the sheet.
Then used Copy to copy the sheet - this got rid of the false alarm.
As the paper passes through the printer, it pushes against little black sticks that wobble back and forth to trip the different sensors. These little 'flags' usually kind of stick up in the middle of the plastic along the paper path. Look over the whole paper path and find all the little flags and make sure they're all moving freely. Sometime you can knock them out of place while removing a jam...then you can't get rid of the jam error.
