First check the Paper feed roller they maybe slick from paper dust, you need to clean them, then turn of the printer and remove the ink cartridges, turn macine over and check the under side of the machine for any sign of paper, remove any seen, then turn back over reinsert cartridges , turn machine on. paper dust sometimes covers the paper read sensor , causing a paper jam, and slick feed roller also contribute to frequent and pervasive paper jams.

Make sure you turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes. Many times, the error is saved in temporary memory. Also, try loading the printer full of paper. This might reset the sensor. Lastly, try uninstalling the printer, and re-installing it. Good luck, and let me know if this helped, ok?

There can be a jam in the front or in the rear. If you have not looked in both locations, do so and you may find that culprit.

I have a Brother MFC 420cn and it keep saying paper jam and there is no paper jam help please


->Clear any loose paper from the paper tray. This will help you locate the jam. You will find it either in front, near the paper tray, or in the rear.

->To clear a paper jam near the paper tray, grip the paper and pull it firmly but gently from the printer. If you find a stack of papers jammed, grab from the middle of the stack and pull.

->For a rear jam, remove the back of the printer. When you find a free edge on the paper, grip it firmly and pull it out.

->Replace the back cover. Press the "Resume" button or turn off the printer, and then turn it back on. Your settings should reset.

->Try printing another document

Jammed paper


You might need to update your drivers. If this doesn't help, there might be some loose gear inside the feeder . Try checking if there are also objects stuck.

My printer mp 145 showing error 3 but no paper jam.. anyone can help?? Urgent!!


first:
Remove the jammed paper, close the cover and press «Resume / Cancel»

second:
If there is no jam - check the checkbox sensor registration papers and the sensor itself
In addition, this error may cause failure of the paper feed roller or gear

or maybe small parts inside of the printer that block paper.

A piece of paper jammed up. I took the paper out but the alarm keeps on saying "Carriage jammed"


Hi there !

Check again your printer and maybe there is still paper jammed inside. Turn off your printer. Open the door cartridge and remove the cartridge. Check for paper jammed. After that return the cartridge and turn on your printer. Sometimes there is paper jammed inside that printer. Just press the power off and turn it on to roll over any paper jammed inside. Turning off on your printer also make your computer refresh the memory of your printer paper jammed.

To make hard reset of your printer. Turn off your printer and remove the power cable to your printer, leave it for five minutes and connect the plug and turn it on again. That will refresh the memory of your printer.

I hope it helps you.

Our printer is not picking up the paper from the tray and is saying it is jammed. There is not jam.


Hi there !

Is your printer had jammed before and it stop printing in the middle of printing? For some reasons, paper can jammed due to printing interruptions, printer turn off, improper loading or feeding of paper, roller feeder had problem and others.

If jams before and paper have let inside the printer, please do the following first:

1. Check th paper tray, see inside if the paper is jammed inside that compartment. If there is paper jammed, remove, turn off your printer and turn on. This will solve your problem.

2. If not, open the printer cartridge door, remove the toner cartridge and look for paper jammed inside. If these is paper inside, remove it, turn off the printer and turn it on.

3. If you cannot see the paper jammed inside, the paper maybe inside the heating area. To remove paper, just turn off your printer and turn it on to roll over the paper jammed inside of it.

4. If the printer is blinking and saying there is paper jammed. You have to check the cartridge toner by opening the cartridge door, remove the cartridge and return it back but be sure it is well firmly fitted.

If following the 4 diagnostic procedure and you cannot locate the jammed paper, the problem lies on the toner cartridge itself. When toner cartridge is not rolling over, it will stop feeding the paper and it will cause printer to jammed.

To diagnose the problem, put old printer cartridge and if no toner power, just shake it well and I am sure there is still small amount of powder inside it and if it prints, the toner cartridge you purchase is defective. Reason, factory defect or improper refilling and part is not working well.

I hope it is helpful and thank you for using FixYa !

Tried to print and it says remove paper jam and press start, tried that several times, put more paper in, powered off and it stil says paper jam...opened it up and no paper i can see thats jammed..


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

Printer says paper jam, but there is no paper in the printer. (mfc 210c)


If the paper tore when removing it, chances are there could be a small piece of paper still causing the paper jam. Sometimes all you need to do is turn the fax off for a few minutes and then turn it on again and the paper jam message is gone
