EPSON SX445W PAPER JAMS


A friend had a similar problem, but I've now diagnosed and fixed it.
In this case the print head was not returning to its little 'nest' on the right. It turned out that the white plastic bits in tht nest were lifted up; when I pushed them down the print head could return home and it stopped saying paper-jam. By this time, I had the printer apart and I found a spring floating around loose, and a bit of black plastic that looked like a spring connection point that had broken off. It turned out to be one of the springs holding the 'nest' plastics in place. The bit of black plastic had broken off the base of the printer.
I melted a hole through from the inside with a fine soldering iron, then fitted a small bolt and nut of about the right length to stick up inside and hold the spring. I fitted the spring over the bolt and put a pair of nuts locked together on the end of the bolt and lock-nut to keep the spring in place.
It now works!

Clean a KX-P7100 printer


The paper jam in theKX-P7100 is usually due to the paper tray.

If you pull the paper tray out you'll notice a black piece of plastic (located at the most front) with a cork like material in the middle. Try pushing down on this piece of plastic a few times. If it does not pop up immediately the grease that Panasonic used has become "sticky". The piece of plastic is removed by turning the tray upside down and pushing on the small plastic tabs that hold the black piece of plastic in. Be careful to not loose the spring that is located under the black piece of plastic or break the plastic tabs that hold it in place. Once you get the black piece of plastic out, clean it with que tips and clean the area it slides up and down in. Make sure to remove all the "sticky" grease. Once you get it clean, don't forget to stretch the spring to one more inch. the spring quality is awful at tensile strength. Then place the spring back in its place and push the black piece of plastic back in its place. You can add some light oil to the black plastic to make it slide better. After it is reassembled try pushing down on the black piece of plastic a few times. It should spring up almost immediately. This should take care of the jams that you are experiencing.

In addition, you may have to stretch the 2 big springs under the metal plate in the paper tray to one more inch. To access them, you'll have to unscrew the 3 philips screws under the tray (take a picture before :-)), take away the 2 blue pieces and take out the metal plate.

Now I'm able to print from the media tray without any problem :-).

Hope this helps!

Error coming up that there is a paper jam at the cartridge but we have opened it all up and their is no jam


First, verify that there is actually no paper jam (open all the doors, take out the paper tray, take out the toner/drum unit and visually inspect), if none, chances are there is a little plastic piece inside the printer that has popped out. The little piece allows the printer to detect when a sheet is exiting the printer. When it pops out, its gives the printer a false reading which makes the printer think there is a paper jam.

Turn printer off and unplug the printer from all cables (power, USB, phone, RJ45, etc). Secondly, take out the drum/toner unit and place in a dark spot like a closet. Next, with the back of the printer facing you, turn the printer over so that it is resting on its front. The bottom should be facing you, and the back of the unit should be pointing towards the ceiling. I will use this orientation when describing the following steps.

Most of the back of the printer is actually a removable piece held in place by 4 silver cross head screws. Two are near the bottom of the printer in fairly deep recesses. The top two are easily accessible. Using a regular cross head (not flat head) screw driver, remove the 4 screws.

Once removed, the entire back panel should lift right off. You will then see the inside of the printer. You are looking for a small, gray plastic piece with a spring attached to it. It will probably be loose in the back of the printer. Its approximately 1.5" long and is roughly S-shaped. One end is different then the other, with one end being relatively skinny and the other end having a sort of paddle shape.

This is the piece that has popped out and makes the printer think there is always a paper jam. If this piece is not loose and is properly secured in place then you have a different problem. Reassemble the printer and call Dell for a replacement printer.

If the piece is loose, pick it up but ground yourself to the printer by touching any metal in the printer. Try not to touch the various electronics inside the printer unnecessarily.

Looking at the back of the printer, roughly in the middle where the paper exits is a black bar with various rollers on it. Below this should be a piece of sheet metal, gray in color, running from once side to the other (left to right) of the printer.

Visually follow this sheet metal piece. Roughly in the middle (left to right again) should be a small rectangular opening. Immediately below this should be a little black plastic piece with two little arms sticking out towards you, with a third arm perpendicular to the first two. This piece will be mounted on a small beige/brown PCB.

This is the actual sensor that the gray S-piece popped out of. If you look at the gray S-piece, you will notice that it has two little round knobs, one sticking out on each side. These knobs snap into the small semi-circular feature on the top of the two arms. The third arm is where the spring on the S-piece pushes against.

So, take the gray S-piece and hold it so that the spring is on the left, the thick paddle part is pointing towards the bottom of the printer, and the skinny part is pointing towards the top of the printer (towards the scanner section).

The skinny curved section of the gray S-Piece actually hooks behind the black roller. Thread the skinny curved section of the S-piece through the rectangular opening in the sheet metal piece and hook it behind the black roller.

Next, locate the two knobs on gray s-piece with the arms on the sensor so that they align with the top of the arms. Ensure that the spring's free arm is also lined up with the third arm on the sensor. When lined up, push down with a a small amount of force. You feel/hear a faint snap as the piece clips onto place.

Check that the spring is properly located in its arm by pushing against S-piece to make it rotate. When you let go, it should spring back to its default position.

That's it! Reassemble the back cover using the 4 screws. Go finger-tight only. These screws are only tapping into the plastic so if you over-torque them you will strip the holes.

When I sheet feed a document it is being dragged to one side and causing a paper jam


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

No ink cartridge holder for my cannon bubble jet jc85? Cannot place color ink cartridge without this piece.


Is the part you're trying to put in labeled BCI-11Clr? If so, that is an ink tank, and you need to have a BCI-11e cartridge to hold it and a small black ink tank. Canon's online store has the BCI-11e on clearance sale right now -- $27.99 instead of the normal $47.75. You can check this out here. (This cartridge comes with both a color ink tank and a black ink tank installed, so you can save your present tank as a spare.)

Sir,
First, verify that there is actually no paper jam (open all the doors, take out the paper tray, take out the toner/drum unit and visually inspect),

If none, chances are there is a little plastic piece inside the printer that has popped out. The little piece allows the printer to detect when a sheet is exiting the printer. When it pops out, its gives the printer a false reading which makes the printer think there is a paper jam.

So, onto the fix. Turn printer off and unplug the printer from all cables (power, USB, phone, RJ45, etc). Secondly, take out the drum/toner unit and place in a dark spot like a closet.

It sounds tedious, but it took about 5 minutes to fix and now the printer is working fine.

Epson C 44 ink jet printer loose white L shape plastic part.


ONE OF THE ARTICLES IN, www.fixya.com/support/t262916-printer_carriage ,GAVE US SOME GOOD INFORMATION. IT REFERS TO A PAGE IN A PARTS MANUAL THAT WAS IN PDF FORM, WHICH WE HAD TROUBLE DOWN LOADING. WITH THE DOWN LOADING OF AN UP DATED ADOBE, WE MANAGED TO VIEW IT. THE ASSEMBLY THAT THE WHITE PLASTIC L SHAPED PIECE WAS MOUNTED TO WAS HANGING DOWN, AND HAD COME LOOSE. THE PLASTIC L PART GOES ON ONE OF THE SHAFTS ON THE LITTLE WHITE PLASTIC CARRIER, THAT MOUNTS INTO THE SLOTS. NOTE THEIR IS A SMALL SPRING THAT IS ON ONE SIDE AND IT ATTACHS TO ONE OF THE SHAFTS ON THAT SIDE OF THE WHITE PLASTIC CARRIER. PUT IT BACK TO GETHER IF THE PARTS AREN'T BROKEN AND THE PRINTER SHOULD WORK. I FEEL IT WAS THE SPRING COMING OFF OF THAT SHAFT THAT ALLOWED IT TO COME LOOSE, AND SHUT THINGS DOWN. GOOD LUCK

Dell 1600 paper jam 1 or no cartridge


Your unit is actually manufactured by Samsung. Most probably you have a bad paper sensor. As a technician, you will find these sensors on the power supply board (SMPS)or main board. If your are receiving tech support from Dell, please illustrate those guys on how to do their job.

Paper jam message


1 Step One Inspect the paper trays to make sure they are not overloaded. To determine if this is the problem, do a test print with only one piece of paper loaded in the paper tray. (If this turns out to be the problem, keep the paper tray half-full in the future.) 2 Step Two Check that the type of paper being used falls within the printer manufacturer's recommendations. For example, paper designed for ink-jet printers doesn't necessarily work well in laser printers. High-quality, bonded paper will cause paper jams in some printers; look for bonded paper that is "laser and ink-jet compatible." 3 Step Three If someone has recently printed labels on this printer, check to see if a label has come unglued from a sheet and become stuck inside the printer. 4 Step Four Check the gears and rollers for stuck shreds of torn paper from previous jams. Turn off the printer before you attempt to remove the bits of paper. 5 Step Five Try changing the ink cartridge. 6 Step Six If you hear a clinking sound during printing, your printer probably has a broken gear and needs to be serviced by a technician.

Problem with ink cartridge


There is something broke with the piece that keeps it in place. You need to take it out and look real close to how it works. Look at how the color works and compare the two.
