Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Paper Jam The paper is about a quarter of the way out and will  come no further. I have turned the computer off and taken out the paper drawer and tried gently but firmly pull the paper.  It has started to tear and if it does then 3/4 of the paper will be in the printer and I will not be able to get it at all.

Re: Paper Jam

Cant you press the paper feed button whilst gently pulling the paper if this dont work you will need to take it apart taking the casing off should allow you to get to the paper but if you are not confident in taking the cases off then leave it to pro as you dont want to damage any further this is the only option if the paper rips and does not come out taking the case off will give you access to the paper and should allow you to pull it out hope this is some help

Open right side cover.let down the lever 1 and remove paper open drawer 1 check & clear paper path

Hello Rashid

Thanks for posting.

Look if the real paper jam had occurred then probably still the paper might have been left in the cartridge area. or mostly when the jam has taken place it might have let the sensor flag stuck then inspect closely and release it manually by pulling it down or upwards. Use a spot light to see it clearly near the toner cartridge are and also in the paper tray area.

Lexmark T644 Drawer 2 Missing error message but drawer 2 is in place. Drawer 2 always has problems pulling form form drawer when printing from drawer 2.

If job prints from the wrong tray or on the wrong paper or specialty media, this is an indication that the operator panel menu settings do not match the media loaded in the tray.

Make sure the Paper Size and Paper Type specified in the printer driver match the paper size and type in the tray.

Sir in our office the canon ir2270 jam the papers. plz send me the steps which we handle this problem

Please follow these instructions every time you load paper and you will never have paper jamming problems.
Make sure that the paper drawer is properly in place. Do not load paper of an irregular size into the paper drawers. Do not load the following types of paper into the paper drawers. Doing so may cause a paper jam. - Severely curled or wrinkled paper - Thin straw paper - Transparencies - Paper which has been printed on using a thermal transfer printer (Do not print on the reverse side of this paper either.) Fan the stack of paper well before loading it. Never place paper or any other items in the empty part of the drawer next to the paper stack. Doing so may cause paper jams.
Also to clear paper jam if you have the manual with you follow it OR you can go to this link and download the manual. It is equally applicable ti ir2270

Copier keeps telling us there is paper jam, we have looked where screen shows jam and find nothing. We have taken out the paper tray, still don't find even a tiny scrap of paper anywhere.

There are several possibilities. After you inspect for the Jam and close the drawer, does the copier come to ready? Have you checked the behind the doors on the right side. If the copier comes to ready and you press the start button does the copier jam right away. If so check the dial on the paper drawer and be sure its set to the right size paper. If its not the copier will jam, right away. It is important with a Canon to check all areas and open both the paper drawer and the right side doors when checking for jam, if the right sequence is not followed in checking for jams the jam may not clear. If still Jammed you might take some canned air open the right side door and blow out the paper feed area, a sensor may be blocked or dusty. If all else fails turn the machine off and un-plug it from the wall, let it set a few minutes and plug it in and try it again.

Error code on Ricoh FT5733 copier

Open ALL paper jam locations on the machine. The jam code only means the paper jam is somewhere BEYOND the paper drawer. Check ALL jam locations including duplexer, bypass, and ALL paper drawers.

Paper jam check drawer two t640 printer

Hello there,

If you are getting "Paper Jam check drawer two message" I would suggest you to check for any paper stuck inside the paper drawer two. If you don't see any paper jammed inside drawer two, you might also want to check out if its is stuck anywhere in the paper path. Removing the paper jam should fix the issue. Try cleaning the pick rollers (the rollers which pick the paper) in drawer two. This should help fixing this issue.

Merry Christmas!
