Major Paper Jam on Dell 5110

We have some small pieces of paper stuck underneath that we can't reach. Can that piece be removed that in located on the inside top of the door, above the transfer roller. There is a grey latch on either side of this piece that when moved, lifts the piece up a bit, but this is not enough for us to get underneith the piece to remove the jam, and although it lifts this piece up, it does not allow us to totally remove it. How can this piece be removed, so we can totally clear the broken paper underneath it?

    Anand, Thank you for the generic response regarding general printer jamming, but the response did not answer my question. Please see my question above, and see if you (or someone else) can answer it. Thanks in advance.

When working with any printer it's inevitable that you'll encounter a paper jam. Below are the steps you'll want to follow when this occurs.

1. Turn off the printer.
2. Inspect the location or tray the printed paper ejects to. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
3. Remove all paper trays and any paper that may be stuck between the tray and the printer. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
4. Open the printer door that allows you access to the printer ink cartridges or toner and look for any stuck paper. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
5. Turn the printer back on. If you continue to receive a printer jam error try repeating the above steps again.

If issue still persist and you see no paper that is stuck in the printer it's likely your printer is experiencing another hardware issue and we suggest contacting the printer manufacturer for additional assistance and/or repair. *

To manually remove paper pull on the paper with both hands being careful not to tear the paper while pulling it. If you're unable to get to an edge of the paper that allows you to pull it you may need to manually rotate the gears that feed the paper through the printer. Preventing a printer paper jam As mentioned earlier it is inevitable that you will encounter at least one paper jam during the life of your printer.

However, if you're encountering frequent paper jams following the below steps can help prevent paper jams from occurring. * If your printer has a paper tray do not fill the tray to capacity. If you're encountering frequent paper jams reduce the amount of paper you place in the tray each time it is filled. * Make sure you or the tray feeding the paper into the printer is aligned properly and/or the slider used to hold the paper in place in the tray is snug with the paper. Many printers have sliders that allow different types and sizes of paper to be fed into the printer. If the slider is not properly positioned it can cause paper jams. *

Use standard office paper; folded paper, paper with labels, and specialty paper such as hard bound paper can often cause paper jams. If you're uncertain with what type of paper you should use with your printer your printer documentation will list the types of paper compatible with your printer. * Do not mix the types of paper you're feeding into the printer at one time. If you need to change the type of paper or size of paper being used removed any other paper currently in the printer before inserting the new paper. * Examine the printer for any previous stuck paper in the printer. Previous paper jams, torn paper, printing labels or other foreign objects in the printer can cause reoccurring printer jams.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Ml-2160. How can I remove small pieces of paper from inside?


Generally paper is stuck either in the middle section or at the back near the fuser. Remove Toner cartridge and open rear door, if it's stuck coming out of the fuser, pull paper through from the back. Make sure to let the machine cool down first as the fuser is very hot. Remove any small pieces of paper from the front if before the fuser.

At power on I get a 13.20.00 jam inside rear door. Nothing is found in the rear door area. I can't find any flag tied up or a sensor to clean.


Hi,

This error can be misleading at times. Although it says to check the rear, if you haven't already, remove the toner cartridge and check inside. Also, when you look inside you should see a green lever on the right side. Lift that and check to see if there is paper stuck down there. Another place you can look is in the paper tray area. Remove the paper tray and check to see if there is a piece caught on the way up. Keep in mind when removing a jam make sure you get a whole piece of paper, any missing pieces will cause problems later.

If both areas appear to be clear, think back to if you have a paper jam and got the paper out. Did the paper tear? A small piece could be stuck on a sensor within the printer. If you find paper and everything is good to go, check the pick up rollers to ensure jamming won't happen again. They are located on the paper tray (grey/blue roller) they should like mini tires with grooves, NOT smooth. The other roller is located inside the printer.

Piece of Paper stuck inside


Sounds like it could be a bit of a label stuck on the transfer belt. Open right side cover and undo the 2 screws located about 2 inches below the fuser, then open left side cover and remove the waste toner bottle and then slide out the transfer belt.
Remove paper and wipe over the belt with a soft damp cloth. If it is a label you will need to use an alcohol cleaner to remove the sticky residue (isopropyl should do the trick)

Good luck

Several sheets of paper are stuck. How do I get them out?


First remove any paper not loaded from the tray - DO NOT use force!

The following is from the HP Website:

Clear a paper jam from the back of the All-in-One
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
  2. Remove the rear access door: Press the tab to the right, and then pull out the door. Figure 1: Remove the rear door c00652942.gif
  3. Gently pull the paper out of the rollers inside the product. CAUTION: If the paper tears when removing it from the rollers, check the rollers for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the product. If any torn pieces of paper remain inside the product, more paper jams are likely to occur.
  4. Replace the rear access door. Gently push the door toward the product until it snaps into place.

I cant recive any fax


Sometimes the plain paper in the tray underneath upsets the whole machine.

Open up the top of the machine, as if you were going to change the toner cartridge. Pull out the cartridge carefully to mae sure that there is not a piece of paper jameed underneath. Replace the catridge and close the top of the machine. when you close the top 'door' the machine will make a noise as if it is resetting itself - the 'jam' display may or may not clear at this point. Next, pull out the paper tray. You will need to stoop down to look into the gap where the tray normally sits. If there is a piece of paper jammed at the back this will need to be carefully removed. If you pull it out make sure there a re no fragments left int he machine - you can check this by oepning out the piece of paper removed and see if there are any pieces missing.
Finally, if all is clear, replace the paper tray (it would be worth topping up your supply of paper as the 'jam' message sometimes comes up when the machine has a low paper supply.

Hope this helps.
