Constant Paper Jam

check the wheels that pick it from the tray.
If they feel smooth, try to put some tape on them and rip it back off.
This cleans the wheels. Also try a new pack of paper and check if it\'s set to plain paper and not to heavier or coated paper

Paper doesn't feed from inside on XD 100 work center (10 years old, lightly used). Despite a full paper drawer, I get the "out of paper" error message.  I can copy by feeding through the back.

On this machine, the feed rollers might be worn down.
Not seeing the machine and by the description. there can also be other possible problem areas, deep in the machine itself.
Does the paper feed partially out?
If it does not, are there paper black scuff marks where the rollers were trying to feed the paper.
Can you hear the solenoids feed the paper?
If the paper does feed and seems crooked, it is possible the paper tray springs need to be stretched out just a little to push the paper tray plate more on the feed rollers.
Make sure the tray is completely up in the latched position so the feed wheels will touch the paper stack itself.
If you have a two paper tray, make sure you tell the machine what size paper you have for each tray.
Run paper in each tray.
Good luck.

Msg is paper jam when there is no paper jam

I had what seems to be a similar problem and the issue was that the rubber "feet" that grab the paper weren't grabbing anymore. So, I constantly got a paper jam reading. I read elsewhere to wipe some glass cleaner/ammonia on the "feet" so that they become "sticky" again. When I did this, the "Feet" or rubber semi-circle parts that rotate around a metal bar then started to correctly grab the paper again and the error stopped.

Load paper error on and paper is loaded

you have probably knocked sensor out of position at the paper feed in area. To check you will need to remove the paper tray completly from machine, then tilt machine up in front and look where paper is fed in there should be like a black flag in that area. it is the sensor that tells machine there is paper.

Error msg: paper jam or empty paper cassette when it is full

Click on the 'feed switch' on the front control panel- it might be feeding from the invisible drawer underneath and it might be empty. There is a light which will indicate which source it is feeding from.

Lexmark c510 241 paper jam error

I agree - the guides inside the paper feed tray must be EXACTLY aligned with the paper size. This fixed my problem.

HP4 and PC LOAD LETTER MSG (and there is paper)

Hi, I assume you can run paper thru the manual feed without any problems? If so the paper sensor that detects the paper in the tray has either broken or fallen off! If you take the paper tray out and tilt the printer a little bit on it's back you should see a sensor that will swing back and forth its' solid black/plastic . The sensor is very cheap and I'm pretty sure this is the problem> Good Luck!!
