Re: i have a jammed cartridge, what can I do

The last two MFP printers brought into my shop had problems from their original setup and opening. Check the inside, anywhere that the paper path or cartridge line touches, make sure there are no small shards of plastic or remaining packing materials like tape or cardboard flakes deep in the printer. There are also small jam sensors that protrude very little from the paper path that if knocked over a little bit can become loose and ironically cause jams.

Printer keeps jamming even after clearing jam

Hi, most paper jams like this are caused by something inside the printer called a "pickup roller" which is a series of rubber tube/grippy things that are responsible for moving the paper through the printer. If these rollers are dirty or worn down, they don't grip the paper properly and end up causing jams. In larger, more expensive printers, they have maintenance kits that you can buy to replace rollers, fusers, and other commonly replaced parts - but it's probably not practical for this model of printer. You may want to try opening the printer as much as you can (without removing screws) and using compressed air and a lightly-damp-with-alcohol cotton-swab to clean the rollers and other parts that touch the paper.

My CLX 3175FN printer continues to have a paper jam. Right now I cannot print any paper size without it jamming. What can I do to correct this problem?

Paper jams

85% of paper jams are caused by worn rollers. The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease. If you plan to keep your printer,

Replace the pick-up and feed rollers.

Metal Tab Separation- Pull out your paper tray and examine either end where the paper sits in. If any of the corners are held down by metal tabs, this is your paper feed system. Chances are, you only have one rubber roller or one set of rollers arranged along side of each other. Reach in where the tray goes and feel up. You should feel some rollers. They might be completely round, or they might be shaped like a half moon. Clean whichever part of them you can with the solution, and this should stop your paper jams. It might be necessary to turn them, but don't force them if they don't move freely.

Pickup Roller and Separation Pad-

If your printer uses this paper feed system, you should see a small piece of flat or slightly curved rubber or cork. It would be towards the end of the paper tray, or deep inside the paper loading cavity on top loaders. This 'separation pad' rubs against the paper feed roller, so if you find the pad, you've found the roller. Clean it and your jams should stop.

Three Roller Paper Separation System- Pull your paper tray out, and look for a roller on either end of it. If you find one, clean it. Then look inside the printer where that roller would rest with the paper tray inserted. You'll find another paper roller there. Clean this one also. Finally, look further back or closer to the front of your printer (depending on which way your paper feeds) to find another roller or set of rollers. Clean all of these, and your paper jams will go away


Start a print from tray 1/manual feed and just as the trailing edge of paper is entering the machine; quickly open it to stop print and take out the cartridge and look at the drum and the paper underneath. If the issue is there at that point then it would point to the cartridge. If not then it is in the fuser area.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

I can't get my brother printer to print photos Keeps saying paper jam even though no paper jam

One of the main causes for paper jams is the presence of dirt, dust, or debris in your toner cartridge. The paper coming into the cartridge would get stuck. So clean your printer regularly. Remove the dust from the printer. Also find out whether any jams occurred in the sensor hole in the upper part of the rotating drum. Do not touch the roller while cleaning. If the oil in your body gets into the roller, the printing media cannot roll over it properly and you can't get rid of the printer problem.

How to free carriage jam on lexmark X4550

There is a rod in the carriage of your printer that is meant for holding the cartridges. It keeps on moving and spreading the ink on the paper throughout the process of printing. If this rod is jammed because of any reason, you face a carriage jam. As mentioned above, the main function of the carriage rod is to spread the ink, so obviously any clog or ink failure will lead to a poor print quality. If rollers of your printer are leaving marks on the document, then you need to clean them with a wet cleaning pad. Never use the chemical cleaners such as benzine, thinner, or alcohol to clean the rollers. In extreme cases you might need to replace an old cartridge of your Lexmark Printer with a newer one. Once you get a new cartridge for your printer, you need to be very careful while replacing it, otherwise it might cause a carriage jam.fix Lexmark Carriage Jam .

Sound like the printer cartridge is either bad ..or now snapped in properly..might try to clean the feed roller the one that pick the paper with a cotton swab or lint free rag with some isopropic alcohol. paper dust will cause slippaged and jam. should be located either in the paper tray or just look above for black or grey rollers (when you have the tray out)

Doesn't Print - Says "Paper Jam"

That is the problem, machine will show printer jam if paper feed rollers fail to pick up paper when requested, your machine sounds like it needs new paper feed roller or you can clean the paper feed roller with a slightly! damp cloth.

If no jam light shows when power is turn on and machine comes to ready and then you send a job to printer and it then shows jam then it is the feed roller or sometimes the feed clutch

If on the other hand it always show jam then there is or a switch is stuck.

Dell 1700n Laser Printer Jam trouble

If it?s always in the same spot then you can narrow your search for the problem. -Look where the leading edge of the paper is getting jammed up for an obstruction, especially if the paper is folded in an accordion fashion. Look closely, I?ve fixed many a paper jam by pulling out a corner of a page stuck in a recess. -If the paper path is clear then the next thing I would suspect is the paper you are using. -Try new paper that isn?t bowed, folded or curled. Before inserting into the paper try flex it back and forth along the width and length, then insert making sure to slide the two side guides and the back guide until they fit snugly against the stack of paper. -Other things to check are the rollers where the leading edge of the paper is getting stuck. Make sure they are clean. -Also make sure your toner cartridge is inserted into the printer correctly. If you have a spare try using that, sometimes cartridges can drag on the paper.
