Question about Ricoh Aficio Sp 3300DN Laser Printer

1 Answer

Red light is constantly blinking and when try to print, there is always a paper jam

The red light is constantly blinking, if you try to send print a document, the printer only try to print the first page, and even the first paper only stops half way (jam) unless you have to open the printer cover and shut it again. If you want to print say, like twenty pages, you'll have to send print twenty times and be ready to open the printer cover twenty times as well.

Every time there is paper jam, the printer knows the job is not completed and hence tries to re-print after the paper is removed and cover is shut.

Clear the print job from computer.
Power off the printer and Clear the paper jam (if any)
I would try to use different tray. The paper pickup roller in one path may be worn out.
eg Sheet feeder or multipurpose tray.
Load paper in new tray
Set the application to use new tray

Ensure you sue the right thickness (gsm) of the paper. Quality of paper is crucial. Too thin; too thick can affect functioning.

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.

Polaroid Paper Jam


I had the same promblem and this is how I solved it. If you have an android, screen shot the picture and crop as you desired. Then Press the share button and click bluetooth (Poloroid Zink) and dial in 6-0-0-0 for the password. Only put that in for the password. If it the password entry doesn't come up, that's okay. Hopefully this helped!

HL 2040 paper jam light is blinking but there is no jam. the printer sounds like it dies out everytime it tries to print.


Often the paper jam light will stay on when the *back* paper jam door is not cleared.

Open up the back of your printer. There is a 2nd door behind this door that you can pull open. If there is a paper in this section, pull it out and it should clear your red light.

When clearing paper jams, clear the front first, and then if the red light is still on, you need to check the back hidden door for another piece of paper.

Paper light continually flashes won't print


when you lift the cover on the back of the printer there is a thin plastic sensor very delicate normally black in colour which detects whether there is paper in the tray or not.that sensor is slightly moved from its orignal position or broken , so this problem is coming.

thanks.

Both the Red and Green lights are burning steady


k, heres a long 1...=P

>the green light is just your power light, if it is glowing, its on, if its blinking...its receiving a job/replacing cartridge/charging cartridge/or cleaning heads
>the red light being constant on is any of the following...
-ran out of ink, ran out of paper, or has a paper jam.

hope this helps.

PS: re-manufactured cartridges can not always be trusted...some companies accidentally send empties...simple mix up im sure,we're all human after all, but be on look-out.

Error LED blinking after paper jam, won't print


I have a similar but different model B4300. Several others, & I have found that a small piece of paper 1/2 square may lodge under a plastic guide, holding open a switch. This is very difficult to notice if you don't know where to look.
Open top lid
Remove the ink cartridge/roller drum as a single unit.
Look in the printer at the metal roller in front.
A Plastic strip on top & in front of the roller covers 2 square holes which should look dark. On your LEFT, as you face the unit, there is a small magnetic switch, to the LEFT of the LEFT square hole, under the plastic.
In my case, the paper was seen as white in the hole, and extended under the switch. I was able to grasp it with a small medical forceps, next to the switch. By gently twisting, I pulled it out without taking the unit apart.
The printer then worked perfectly after the paper under the switch was removed.
