Hey there,
I have had this problem with an HP printer. The problem was due to a small plastic arm which was attached to the paper load sensor for the printer. It had become detached from its seating, and printer could not fully detect the load in other trays, so it always went to the default tray. Try opening all the compartments you can on the printer and look for a small lever which appears to be just dangling. Place the loose end back in its seating, which should be obvious to see when you find it. Hopefully it has not broken off. Good Luck!

Canon ImageClass MF3240 paper jam fix

The Canon ImageClass MF3240 continues to show "paper jam" error even if someone followed all the possible fix to remove the jam. After clearing the paper in all access doors (both front and back), the printer still gives the paper jam error. Also, if you have tried restarting the printer several times to no avail and the red light keeps blinking, here is the fix to what is most probably been causing the paper jam problem of Canon ImageClass MF3240.

1. Turn off the printer and pull out all plugs and power cord that is attached to your printer.

2. Remove the paper tray at the bottom and let the printer lie at its back so that you can see underneath.

3. Get a flashlight and look closely for the sensor located underneath the printer. The sensor is located in a small square hole, just above the small black plastic "lever" (looks like a small hockey paddle) on the left side of the gray rubber roller. Move the lever so that you can freely look closer on the hole.

4. Notice because there could be a tiny paper shred stuck inside and this causes the sensor to detect a paper jam.

5. Get a small tweezer to remove that paper out.

6. Next, let the printer stand normally and return the tray back.

7. Re-plug all cables and start your printer. That's it!

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!

Xerox workcentre pro 90 says tray 2 not available, reset software and hardware but wont print from tray 2, paper size 11x17, any ideas

Take the paper tray out as follows: open the front door, pull the tray out as far as it goes. On the side rails there is a hole and if you look into the hole there is a stopper. Turn this stopper a little by a small screw driver or similar and simultaneously pull the tray out on the other side, then the remaining side one by one.

On the back side of the tray there is a sector plastic gear and a smaller one. Sometimes they lose teeth because paperr stack is very heavy and thy are made of plastic.

Another cause may be improperly installed feed rollers.They must be installed right way round. When paper stack raises the feed rollers actuate a fork which, in turn, actuates a plastic flag which in turn blocks a sensor in the inside back wall if the copier/printer. Everything is fu**ing plastic and breaks easily.

Hello sir; It depend on where the paper got jam, if jam at the point when paper take off, then you have clean up paper pick up roller or replace it, if jam inside the machine then have to clean up paper feed roller, if jam at the end, check the paper exit senser, make sure it moving freely.

Can not remove waste tray. Is there a any other

The waste tray is parallel to the maintenance (cleaning) tray. If you miss the 30 second window (seriously) to remove the waste tray the printer will lock the tray by dropping a small plastic arm (which can break if you pull on it too hard). However, the small plastic arm is accessible from the maintenance tray slot. If you look inside the maintenance tray slot (the left slot) on the right wall roughly 1 1/2 inches in you will see a tiny white square piece that you can easily reach with your index finger. Just apply light pressure to the top of that white piece and it will lift the plastic stop that is holding in the waste tray. If there is any resistance when you try to push down on that white plastic piece just try either gently pushing or pulling the waste tray to ensure that the white locking piece isn't caught on the tray.

Laserjet 4700 Tray 2 stuck will not pull out.

You possiblely have something loose in the tray or something broke. Find something metal and thin, like a hack saw blade, and stick it through the slot between the drawer and printer and see if you can feel the obstruction, and if so try to move it out of the way. Something is catching on the printer frame and drawer.

Lexmark Optra T612

The broken part is called the bell crank arm part number 56P1228 this is very common. If the printer isn't recognising your tray, remove it and check the little plastic fingers on the left side (half way down the tray) and the metal springs in the printer (left side) which the tray pushes on to.
