Paper Jam Message

Paper jammed in my printer. I lifted the main lid, took out the toner, removed the paper in tact without any problems and replaced everything. The error message still says that "open upper cover, paper jam". I know there is no more paper in the printer, have now looked a thousand times, but just cant get the printer to see this! Have tried turning off overnight and turning on but does not correct the problem. Is there anywhere else beside the upper cover that I can open to access the printer?

Thanks for the solution. I have a oki B4300, same problem.
I opened top, removed toner/drum. On your left, in front, there is metal roller held by springs. Plastic strip is just in front of this. Two square windows under plastic strip should look dark.
In my case, the Left "window "was white. This was a very small piece of paper which also extended under a small, moveable magnetic switch to the far left. I removed this paper by grabbing it (next to the switch) with a pair of surgical forceps, gently twisting it until it could be pulled out. No need to remove any parts. It now is fixed!
Thanks again.

OK! I have fixed my problem (I was the guest that hadn't yet joined)..I have had Oki LED printers for many years and have found them to be quite dependable, yet sensitive, printers.

I too, had thought that there was no paper in the printer. However, as I was getting extremely exasperated I thought I'd go over the complete path that the paper takes one last time. Upon very close examination I did find a very small (perhaps 1/2" x 1/2") piece of paper from the covering of a new ream of paper that I had opened (must have adhered to the newly loaded paper) - this had lodged underneath a clear plastic strip located just under the image drum. I actually needed to remove this strip by gently prying up one side to free it - when I retrieved the paper I couldn't believe that such a small and flimsy piece of paper could actually have shut down my printer. But it did!

So I would advise you to check over and over again in any possible part of the paper path for something in there. I'll bet that the printer is fine, that there is something hiding from your view that needs to be freed.

My guess is that this paper had interfered with a sensor and caused this message. There is no way that this paper jammed should have interfered with the operation of the printer, but it definitely did.

Good luck!

HP Photosmart C6280 paper jam--won't print (of course), message reads 'add paper to main tray'


Please try this to clear the paper jam

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.
