Re: paper jam, but i just hooked it up??

The paper MUST be dry and non slick, other wise the mechanism can't handle it..

I have a hp psc 2355xi and i have a paper jam issue after changing ink cartridges , no paper visibly jammed

hi there!

it may have damaged the feed mechanism, this usually happens when theres a paper jam and we just pull it out. try powercycling the printer (unpug power cord from the printer and from the wall outlet too) leave it for 2mins, plug it back in to the printer first then to the wall outlet. if that dont work, ive posted the link for that printer here, check out the manuals and troubleshooting steps too, they're all for free. you can also contact 800-HP invent or 800-474-6836.

My printer keeps saying there is a paper jam and makes a funny click-click-click noise when I repower it.

There is probably something jamming the cog's that feed the rollers and paper,

If you cant see anything such as a paper jam, then try flipping the printer upside down, and give it a gentle shake.

It's surprising how many times a paperclip or something has fallen into the opening or paperpath of a printer.

Good Luck

The roller on the feed tray keeps feeding through eventhough there is no paper there and the panel keeps saying there is a jam

If it doesn't do this with paper in the tray, it's a stuck paper present sensor flag.
If the machine thinks there's paper there, it tries to feed. Since paper doesn't make it to the timing sensor, it shows a jam.
Check for a stuck flag above where the leading edge of paper would be with the cassette inserted.

We have a canon MP490 printer, and it says that there is a paper jam, but there is not. We have tried everything we can think of to fix it, including unplugging it, but it hasn't worked.

This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

My Canon PIXMA Pro9000 InkJet Photo Printer paper jam error

Had the same problem with mine. Shook it upside down and cleaned it with air cans after reading this solution for other canon printers:
To my surprise, it worked perfectly... and was great stress relief.

My Epson DX4000 Printer keeps getting paper jams and wont print

still printing but the paper goes no further?. It may be the paper is locked by paper feeder mecahnics, Open case, check it, and may be there is something "material" broke.

Canon pixma mp150 saying paper jam but cant see one

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Paper Jam on

most printers are pretty cheap now so replacement is always an option....on the other hand, I will spend countless hours trying to figure out what is wrong first. Remove all paper first, open printer and check for pieces of torn paper or debris, if you have a can of air you can blow out the insides to clean. Put 3 or 4 sheets of paper in, print a test page and watch carefully how paper it straight or crooked when being loaded? Is printer trying to pull more than 1 sheet at a time? Good luck

Paper jam cant fix it

Try for a re-set. See your manual How you do this can be a mystery because every make model it seems is different. If you have several button to press for various actions try this. Turn the printer off- press any two buttons together and whilst they are pressed switch on- holding the buttons down. Now I do not know how many buttons or combinations you can make on this particular machine so it will be a process of elimination. You could also get onto Canon Tech Support team. A useful site is also
