Pull it out with a pair of tweezers and then
clean the rollers from where the paper goes in.
clean the carriage rod(metallic rod along which cartridges move)with alcohol.
If this does not work that means that your pick assembly of your printer is dyiing

    1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.

    2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if
      necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power
      off.)

    3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)

    4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.

    5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

      If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
      If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.

    6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.

    7. Turn the printer off.

    8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual
      feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the
      exit rollers.

    9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the
      right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may
      work it loose.

I have a paper jam many pieces went through the printer and won't budge. I don't see a way to get to where the paper is stuck


Unplug the printer from the power source to turn it off. Open the printer cover to access the cartridge area. If you see the paper jam, slowly and carefully pull the paper out of the printer. Avoid tearing the paper or avoid leaving torn pieces in the printer. This will cause future paper jams in the printer.
When all is clear, re-plug the printer into the power source. Load some paper and try to print again.

Paper stuck


  • 1. Protect yourself from shock. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the Canon Inkjet Printer. This is an important step when working inside ANY electronic device.
  • 2 Unhinge the back access panel of the printer. It seems repetitive to say this, but this door will be in the BACK of the printer.
  • 3 Look through the opened back panel and look for paper. Remove any and all paper you find jammed there.
  • 4 Close the back access panel. Make sure that it latches into place and looks the same way that it did before you opened it.
  • 5 Find the front or top access panel. This is the panel you would lift to change ink cartridges. Open this access panel. If the carriage that holds the ink cartridges moves, then you forgot to unplug the printer, go back and do that now. Look for paper that may be jammed in this area of the printer.
  • 6 Remove any paper you find jammed here. When pulling from the front there will be resistance from the paper feeder. Pull slowly or the paper will rip and create a more stressful problem.
  • 7 Close the front access panel. Make sure that it falls or latches back in place. It should look the same way that it did before you opened it.
  • 8 Plug the printer's power cord into the wall outlet, and attempt to print again. If the printer prints the job, then you have successfully removed the paper jam.

    If paper is jammed, a Paper jam message will appear on the control panel display.

    Follow these steps to clear the jam:

    1. Gently pull any jammed paper out of the output tray or sheet feeder.

    2. If the paper is stuck inside, turn off the Epson Stylus CX.

    3. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the Epson Stylus CX back on.

      alert_note.gif Note: Be sure to check the far left of the carriage area when checking for jammed paper. Paper that is jammed there may be hidden from view.
    If paper jams inside the Automatic Document Feeder, clear the jam as follows:

    1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover and remove any jammed paper.

    It's jammed


    When working with any printer it's inevitable that you'll encounter a paper jam. Below are the steps you'll want to follow when this occurs.
    1. Turn off the printer.
    2. Inspect the location or tray the printed paper ejects to. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.
    3. Remove all paper trays and any paper that may be stuck between the tray and the printer. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.
    4. Open the printer door that allows you access to the printer ink cartridges or toner and look for any stuck paper. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.
    5. Turn the printer back on. If you continue to receive a printer jam error try repeating the above steps again. If issue still persist and you see no paper that is stuck in the printer it's likely your printer is experiencing another hardware issues and we suggest contacting the printer manufacturer for additional assistance and/or repair.
    To manually remove paper pull on the paper with both hands being careful not to tear the paper while pulling it. If you're unable to get to an edge of the paper that allows you to pull it you may need to manually rotate the gears that feed the paper through the printer.

    Paper Jam light is on but no paper jam in printer?


    Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

    1. Turn off your printer
    2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
    3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
    4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
    5. Close all doors and put back all trays
    6. Turn on your printer

    Dispalays Reads paper jam and wont disappear


    Unplug the power cord then put it back up. This restarts the printer again in case the on/off button does not work to turn the printer off. Then check if there's a paper jam. To do this open the scanner lid and also the glass lid, just the way you access the inks when replacing them. Check to see if there's any paper stuck underneath the inks by the printer rollers along the paper path.

    Lexmark 2500 printer paper gets stuck and won't print


    . There are rollers that cling on to the paper and move it through the machine. When the rollers are worn down they do not grip the paper. For a short fix you can get something rough like sandpaper, brillo pad, etc, and gently scratch the rollers to give them some traction. This will temporarily solve your problem until you can get the rollers replaced.

    Printer problem


    Samsung 4100 laser printer, scanner, copier

    The paper gets stuck in the roller and is not drawn up to the drum. The beginning of the problem started when the paper was never pulled from the drawer. When I open the paper drawer after a Paper Jam error, the paper is bent backward but still detached. Now it is drawn in but sticks.....margoa
