Hi, Follow these steps:- 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.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. 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.
Thanks! mannu_rakesh

My canon MP287 cant print.black when photocopy. The paper also started to jam so it cant print. what will I do?


When there is a paper jamb make sure the whole piece of paper is removed because any tiny pieces of paper that are left behind will cause further paper jambs.
If the paper does not feed through the printer correctly then the rubber rollers are dirty/sticky. Clean the rollers with methylated spirits to stop the paper from sticking to the rollers.

Hp deskjet 5550 is always had a paper jam. what do you think is the problem of my printer? what is the possible solutions?


When removing a sheet of paper from a jambed printer, you need to be careful to slowly remove the paper without tearing the paper. This could lead to a tiny piece of paper being left behind and this will cause other paper jambs.
When this happens, the printer may need to be dismantled to remove the paper.
The other cause could be that there is uneven pressure across the rollers or dirty rollers which causes the paper to feed through unevenly and results in a paper jambs.
Check the printer for pieces of paper near the rollers and gears.
Clean the rollers, make sure there are no deposits on the rollers.

My hp photosmart c7250 will not clear printing jam. after reseting, the rollers keep running until it times out then displays a print jam.


Sounds more like an out of paper response rather than a jamb. Make sure the pickup roller can actually catch the paper. Use a polymit to roughen the rollers slightly in the slot where the paper is contained. If you take the paper out and look down the slide that holds the paper you will see two or sometimes 3 rollers They can become shiny and fail to grab the paper. Make sure you use proper printing paper and not photocopy paper as this is the stuff that has resinous coating that causes rollers to become shiny.

To also ensure that there is not a tiny piece of paper covering the detection eye for paper jamb use a piece of stiff card and run it through the paper path with a little assistance from you pushing it while the roller turns. This will often remove any tiny bits of paper or waxy substance from the eye.

I keep getting paper jambs or sometimes it won't grab the paper, or grabs 3 or 4 sheets and then jambs


Try cleaning the pickup roller with a little alcohol. Also try some fresh paper. Paper can pick up moisture and tend to stick together. Seperate your paper with a fannig motion before inserting.
