Lots of potentials here.
The corona wire may have become dirty in the jam. That will cause it. Both the front and back door have to be shut. See to it that their respective switches are activated when they are shut. Read your owners manual. It is full of suggestions for this issue.

I have a Toshiba estudio162 and its saying clear paper jam. I opened the tray, removed the crumbled paper and closed it.Its still saying Clear Paper Jam. How do i make the red light stop flashing?


The sensor acturator that the paper hits might be broken or out of place so the copier thinks there is paper there when there is not or there might be a small piece of paper that stuck in there holding the sensor acturator up.

You need to clear the paper jam. Have you never had a jam before? I suggest that you download the manual http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/KXFL511.PDF and check the instructions on page 58-60 for how to clear a Jam.

PAPER JAM


give this a shot
try this, its probably a small part of jammed paper or then theres a problem with the pickup, try cleaning it.

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  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 away from light/ sun 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. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper 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.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Printer says paper jam but there is none


Look Inside of each cover on the printer & see if there is a small piece of paper inside. Also, check if there is loose dust from the paper built up by the sensor switches. If none of these work, try flipping the sensor switches manually. Sometimes these get stuck in a particular bad paper jam.

CANON I960 BLINKING RED LIGHT 2TIMES


is the piece of paper removed? or there parts of the paper w/c was nt removed? if the whole paper was removed already, try to use this steps..step 1. remove the power cord of the printer. step 2. press the power on/off of the printer while plugging the power cord. and wait for 10 seconds before releasing the on/off button..then put on your printer. but if some pieces of broken paper inside the printer try to clear it first then try printing.

HL 2040 paper jam light is blinking but there is no jam. the printer sounds like it dies out everytime it tries to print.


Often the paper jam light will stay on when the *back* paper jam door is not cleared.

Open up the back of your printer. There is a 2nd door behind this door that you can pull open. If there is a paper in this section, pull it out and it should clear your red light.

When clearing paper jams, clear the front first, and then if the red light is still on, you need to check the back hidden door for another piece of paper.

Cannot print


If this is a 2200dtn, have you checked the duplex turn around tray under the printer? You can access this by removing tray 2, inside on the front left you should see a small green tab which will release a drop down tray. Many times a sheet or even just a piece of paper can get lodged in the sensor causing a paper jam condition.
