What brand and model of printer?

I would open all the doors and look for a small piece stuck close to the rear where the paper comes out.

Getting message that I have a paper jam but there isn't on to be fpund


Try checking the printer for foreign objects that might be interfering with the paper path. Tilt the printer sideways and try shaking it a bit. After that, try printing. If the issue persists, clean the rollers of the printer.

Printer says there is a paper jam but there isn't


Please insure that the paper sensor flag is still in it position. Open the printer and look about in the middle to see the flag. Feel if it moves freely.

My deskjet F2400 keeps saying paper jam, there isn't one. it will not print at all now.


One of the paper sensors most likely has dirt in it, Check the paper path and if you have access to an air compressor you can blow any dust out.

13.05.00 jam in


Hello Konnaris Nikos,
Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!
To answer your question: There are five known causes for the error code you are seeing.
1. Paper did not get to the fuser within the expected time.2. You are printing on smaller media which is likely encounter 13.05 jams - especially if using media with lengths from 160 to 170 mm (6.25 to 6.75 inches).3. A worn-out fuser can cause both 13.05.00 and 13.06.00 jams.4. Lightweight media that is acclimated in a high-humidity environment can curl excessively and cause 13.05.00 jams.5. Legal paper used when the job calls for envelope will result in a 13.05.00 or 13.06.00 jam instead of a size error.
You will need to have the printer examined for a maintenance kit to be installed. You may also want to check and make sure your print project isn;t set to use Envelope as the paper media and the drawer is loaded with Legal paper.Thank should fix your issues.

Have a great day!

Orange light blinking, cleared paper jam, changed printer cartridge, won't print subsequent documents.


Double check all doors/ rollers for small pieces of paper stuck in the rollers. Sometimes just opening the door in question and closing will reset the paper jam sensors. Paper jams can be smaller than your pinky finger nail. So double check,

Comment if it still isn't working.

The Lexmark x342n all in one printer gives the error code 200.20 i took out the paper jam and tried to print again but it still gives the same fault i also can the drum and tried again but it only...


General tip: If the paper tears when you pull a jam out of the printer, spread the paper out and make sure you have all of the pieces. A small shred left inside can cause another jam.

"I also can the drum" - does this mean you discarded the printer cartridge? I've never seen a cartridge cause a jam. Usually an accordion-fold jam in this area is the result of the fuser rollers not turning or a torn fuser sleeve. A jam without an accordion fold indicates that the paper did not make it into the toner deposition area soon enough - this could be a problem with the pickup roller or the next set of rollers. Worn or dirty rollers can work intermittently before they quit completely.

Also, check the paper detection flag to make sure it isn't hanging up (this is a black plastic tab that sticks into the paper path just before the paper goes under the cartridge, and is pushed up or down by the paper). Look for the U-shaped optical detector that is interrupted by this flag, and make sure it isn't blocked by foreign material.

Hi my printer is not printing, it stoped to work yesterday when I change the paper


Are you getting any flashing lights that could perhaps indicate a paper jam or maybe the paper isn't loaded correctly?

When trying to print getting error Paper Jam in Manual Feeder. There is no Jam...we tap the side of the machine and it prints....any Ideas on what causes this to happen?


There is likely a loose connection going to the manual feed paper sensor.
The printer thinks there's paper in the manual feed, but of course since there isn't any paper there, when it tries to feed the paper in from the manual feed, the next paper sensor is not tripped, so it assumes there is a jam in the manual feed.
Start testing at the manual feed sensor, and work your way back to the board it connects to.
It may be the sensor itself just needs to be cleaned - these sensors are usually optical, and spraying canned air at it will often fix it up.
Also, make sure the lever that trips the sensor isn't sticking after using the manual feed.

Paper Jam at 2


Its probably not picking up paper from that tray, thus the jam error. For me that is typically because the tray isn?t pushing the paper up high enough to be caught by the pickup roller or the pickup rubber band is worn.
