  1. Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.
  2. Turn off the printer.
  3. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A). The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though.
  8. Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.

I'm getting an error saying Unable to print 30


  1. Clean all feed wheels and guides with methylated spirits.
  2. Look for any switch or guide that may be bent or out of place. This could have been damaged when a jam was removed.
  3. Look for any small piece of paper or staple that may have lodged in the paper path somewhere.
  4. Ensure the paper is dry. Not stored in a cupboard in the kitchen or the printer is not setup infront of an air vent.

Paper jam. caused error print unable 30


"Machine Error 30" (or "Unable to Print") indicates either a simple problem such as a paper or part of a paper stuck inside the machine, which of course is solved by opening the machine as much as possible and remove the reason for the jam.
Even a ripped part of a paper will be able to cause the paper, so it's important to be careful when taking jammed paper out to not rip the paper (do this by carefully pulling the paper among the same way as it would go when printing, not the opposite direction).

However, if that doesn't work, the error is mechanical (but still most likely caused by the jam, either a sensor getting dirty and unable to do it's work, or actually getting broken), and there isn't much you can do. If the message comes back right after turning on the machine, you'll have to have service performed on the machine.

Dell 922 All-In-One Printer will not print anything


The printer does not feed paper from the tray and then states that there is a paper jam. I have removed all paper and there isn't a paper jam. It will feed paper through the lower roller and straight into the printed paper tray, but will not feed a new sheet.

Paper jam / Dell 1710n


Do this You want to check the paperpath so first run a test page you will hear the paper pickup if you stick your ear to the paper tray it should pickup paper within 2 clicks any more than that that means you would need to change the bottom roller and the pad on the tray to be safe, to print a job the printer is timed to do this so if your paper is not picking up in time it will jam (also your fuser the part that heats up the toner on the paper it has a time limit to heat up if it's slow or don't heat up at all you will get a paper jam plus if that happens take your finger and run it across the paper if toner on your finger it's you fuser

Dell 1700n Laser Printer paper jams


Some questions first: -Where in the paper path is it jamming? -Is it always in the same spot or does it vary? -Roughly how many pages have you printed with this printer? -Did anything lead up to this or has it progressively gotten worse?
