Re: paper jam - misfeed

Mine also miss feeds to the right and jams. As far as I can tell it's a problem with the basic design of the printer. I personally am not thrilled as I will never likely be able to afford sending this thing to the manufacturer to be fixed. All in all that's probably for the BETTER as I would be "red stapler"* homicidal if I actually did manage to scrape the money together to send my printer in just to get a hold of someone on the phone the next week who get's crappy with me and tells me to *&#$ off they will not fix it or pay to send it back much less reimburse my shipping and handling. Stupid me for buying this printer. And stupid me again for buying ink refills for it yesterday cuz I hadn't used it in so long (cuz it's always broke) I forgot the paper jams all the time and dosen't print straight even when it does load. I'd really like to sit down with lexmark designers and say "What the hell? You ripped us off! How many of these printers did you sell??"

My sharp 2300-n notified me of a paper misfeed. After clearing all misfed paper, the copier is still telling me there is a misfeed, and is not allowing me to print or copy. Suggestions?

Make sure that all of the paper jams are removed. Check every available cavity, including your paper trays. Pull each tray out and make sure there are no jams right out of the paper trays. Sometimes a piece of paper can become lodged where you cannot see it.

If you are positive there is no paper stuck in the machine, then you have a paper-path sensor that is either dirty or faulty.

Paper keeps shifting during loading and eventually gets jammed every time

Seems like the rollers are either dirty, or worn out. Probably the latter.

Red blinking light

Hi, this is not a cartridge related problem. As you have written, it is related to the paper misfeed. When removing any future paper misfeeds, always take extra caution as not to destroy the paper sensor. If it jammed near the paper tray area, first open the right cover to see the paper, the try to pull it slowly till it comes out. Never try to force it out as you may tear a small piece which will show you that a misfeed is still on. If it does tear, carefully remove it until its out. If it jams on the fusing unit, release the side levers on the copier or turn the green rotating lever on the front which appears when front cover is open until it ejects it out.

If you are sure there is no jammed paper, make sure the spring on right side of fusing unit, where there is a sensor is retracted to its position. Good luck pal.

Ricoh Aficio CL3500N printer phantom misfeed

It seems that the sensor is having dust or toner settled upon it. Kindly remove the toner and clean the residual toner. Take a hard stock paper and give one copy command and push it while it tries to pull the paper. Paper misfeed is not the same as paper jam. Paper misfeed refers to the blank paper tray and paper jam refers to paper which has been taken from the tray and now inside the unit.

Sharp al-1631 misfeed light will not go out

This usually happens when a sensor that detected a paper jam has not reset itself after removing the paper. Make sure that when the jam was removed - all the paper came out and there is/was not a small piece missing that could have been left behind in the copier and is hiding somewhere. If you are sure the paper has all been removed then what could have happened is when the jam was being removed it could have caught on one of the paper sensors. This could pull the little flag that activates the sensor out of place - giving a false paper jam message. there are only a handfull of sensors in the paper path. remove the paper tray and make sure there is no paper stuck behind the tray or in the cavity where the tray goes. look and follow very closely the path the paper takes - look for any sensors/flags the paper would avtivate and make sure the flag moves freely and is not lopsided.
Make sure you also try unplugging and replugging the copier from the wall.
Hope this helps

Misfeeds paper pulls to the right--says paper jam-no jam

there could be a paper jam or some paper still inside.

  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.
