    Paper got jammed.  Pulled it out intact but keep getting paper jam error.  I put a piece of heavy stock paper in, turn unit off then on and the paper fed through but immediately the paper jam error went on again.

    Ok, had the same problem,paper jam,but the track and everything is clear. I did the two heavy paper trick and it worked. It got me back to the regular display panel and no error.. BUT>> now when I go to print a document or copy, it gives me the paper jam error AGAIN. I do the two heavy paper thing, it clears the code again. I went into maintance option and did the "clean roller' option. It feeds the paper just fine. I did it over and over. But everytime I go to print, I get the paper jam eror and I have looked deep inot the unit with a LED flashlite and there are NO foriegn objects lodge in there. Any help?

I finally fixed the problem by running two sheets of heavy card stock through at the same time.  With the machine off, I positioned the two sheets in the feeder so that they would be pulled in when the printer was turned on.  When I turned on the printer, it drew the two sheets through and I guess this reset the paper sensor.  I previously found that only one sheet at a time did't work.

Yah it happen because you forced to pull out the papers, the paper sensor pin was stock up and not returning into the proper
place.. so thats why every time you turn on your printer paper jam error appeared even without paper..

Solution: take off the cover and try to locate the paper sensor under the feeder unit..and try to put it in proper allignment..

good luck men!!..

Canon MP470 keeps saying "paper jammed"

I had the same problem for DAYS and there was no paper jammed at all. I went to the cannon site as a last ditch effort & the solution below fixed it. Just clean the rollers and the link tells you how. Good luck!

Paper jam

Found this on the HP Web site.
The product stops printing and the error message 'Paper Jam: Clear jam, and then press OK ' displays on the product.

I keep getting paper jam messages when there is no paper jam.

Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry.
Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print.
Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job.
Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..

I bought a printer from Btother MFC3360C. The paper didn't feed. I attempted many times to get it to work by trying to print some things. I finally fixed the paper problem and the damn thing starts pr

those buttons dont stop whats in the queue. You need to go to your printer icon, right click and select the first tab on the list, from there, you will see all the files being dumped to the printer, right click file and select delete, this will erase everything in the buffer.

thanks adi

Disabling the fax function

You can set the fax portion of the machine to manual receive like this:
"User tools"
"fax features" ok
"reception settings" ok
"switch reception mode" ok
"Manual reception" ok
"user tools" to exit
Thia will prevent the machine from picking uo any incoming faxes

....However, if the machine is jamming trying to print a 'fax' report, it will jam regardless of the feature you are using -they are unrelated. Depending on the cause of the jam, it could be a specific tray that is causing the problem, so you may want to remove the paper from that tray, and see how it works. The other reason, that is common for jams from one particular tray is that the size is set incorrectly. Check that the paper size dial on the tray is set for the appropriate size in the tray (including orientation).

If none of this helps, please describe the location of the jams, and I may be able to give further advice.

My printer prints, but after each page a paper jam appears when there is no paper jam, I press ok and it prints the next page. How can this be solved?

From the sounds of things, the issue may be a logic board issue if it is erroring out the same way each time. Many times a small scap piece of paper can get stuck inside the printer causing the paper error, but pressing the OK button would not clear the error which leads me to believe it is a logic board issue. May be time for a new printer.
