Paper won't feed into printer

My paper won't feed properly. Error message is paper jam, but it just seems like the rollers won't feed the paper into the printer, not matter what paper setting I'm using at the time.

I have taken a piece of cardboard, like the ones you get with a new shirt, size it to 8.5 x 11, and tell the printer to print a test page. hand feed the cardboard thru, and most times it will clean out the residual paper pieces stuck in the internal rollers. I have used this method several times and was successful 99% of the time. It isn't rocket science, but It may work. You will probably have to push the cardboard thru, but do not force it to much. It will not go thru easily on its own. Just a suggestion.

Paper feeder problem. Actually, most caused by rubber deteoritation. Pick up rubber (top and bottom) has grip. You can buy a set of paper feeder about $25, or maintanenance that. Just add tape (double side tape) under rubbers. And check lubrication at paper feeder.

Printer is not print properly & paper jam problem. how repair the printer &how to troubleshoot the printer &how check out ,which part have problem.


When you removed the jammed paper, did the paper come out inone piece, if not did all the pieces that were removed make up the entire sheetof paper?
Otherwise there may be still a small piece/s of paper still in the printer,which is causing this error message.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.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper.The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

Thank you contacting FixYa for your printer inquiry.
This error is associated with either a sheet of paper blocking the paper path or a partial piece of paper that blocks path or trips a sensor. The printer will usually throw up a error code 13.XX on the display and the XX is a number that will indicate where in the paper path this error most probably occurred. Just follow the steps for your error on the below chart.
This link will take you to the user guide which will be helpfull identifying components and providing guidelines for most of the helpful hints and things you will need to know about this printer.

Paper feed issues when there is no Paper jam. All the rollers move when the printer tries to feed paper. It'll feed about and inch and a half of paper and then stop showing a Paper Jam.


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.


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

Paper feed error message. spits it out fast and


Your printer has a fail safe mechanism that pushs the paper that it's processing out to prevent any other jams during the printing process. Your rollers must have something jamming it's movement during printing. You will need to open the printer through the panels on the back, front, and side to ensure that you see the rollers and remove any paper or debrise blocking hitched on the rollers or in the printer. You may also want to ensure that the holders on the sides of the paper tray where the paper comes in are lined up correctly. Also, make sure not to pack the paper tray to capacity. Only use the tray half full.

While printing with OKI C5600 very often error message pops up about jammed paper though no REAL jam happened. To solve I just open and close paper tray and front door. JAM PAPER error is real pain if...


Have you tried cleaning the paper feed roller(s)? Either soap & water OR isopropyl alchohol with a cotton ball will do, just make sure the rollers are dry before trying to print again, otherwise damage to imaging unit (drum/toner unit) could occurr. If the printer doesn't feed in the first place, the printer thinks it has a jammed paper, thus opening paper tray and front cover resets misfeed/ jam condition. Let me know your progress....Tim

Error message keeps appearing "paper jam in tray 2" although there is definitely no paper jam.


If you did not get ALL the jammed sheet out, there is still a small piece of paper in there somewhere, probably covering a sensor or micro switch. Get a torch and look carefully. If you don't find anything you may need to disassemble the printer to find it.

'paper jam' error on canon pixma ip4300


Hi guys, I eventually found a solution to the problem for my printer. With the top cover open, I pushed a sheet of 120 micron thickness A4 clear plastic binding cover through the exit tray as far as it would go to rest against the bottom row of rollers. I switched the printer off then back on again and as the rollers lifted momentarily, I pushed the sheet of plastic as far up through the machine as I could before the rollers went down again - it went in a fair distance. The printer then ejected the plastic sheet. I then put the plastic sheet into the paper tray and tried to print a blank document page. The plastic fed through cleanly and my printer has been working since without any error messages. I hope this works for you.
