SOURCE: Paper Jam

Causes of repeated paper jams If paper jams occur repeatedly, one of the following may be causing them: The paper is being pushed in too far. The paper should only be pushed in until the first resistance. Continuing to push the paper in will force the paper up into the paper rollers and will cause the printer to pull in multiple pages. Obstructions in the paper path. Open the all-in-one (front and back) and check for obstructions.

  • Unlocked rear access door. Follow the steps above to install the rear access door correctly (see Figure 3). If this condition is present, the paper will skew in the all-in-one.
  • The paper guides are not positioned against the paper. Adjust the paper length and width guides so they fit snugly against the paper.
  • Incorrect paper. The paper should be flat and smooth with no folded, torn, or rough edges. Papers with a glossy finish and coated papers may not feed into the unit correctly. Paper that has already been printed on once can also cause problems.
  • Partially installed paper tray. The paper tray must be inserted all of the way into the all-in-one.
  • Dirty paper feed rollers. Over time paper fibers and dust will stick to the rollers and should be removed.. Also verify that the rollers on the rear access door are clean and turn freely.
Check Paper light flashes but there isn't a paper related problem The check paper light may also flash if there are other problems. Verify the following conditions:
  • Verify that the print cartridge door is closed.
  • The print carriage may be jammed, follow these steps to correct the problem:
    1. Open the print cartridge access door. If the print carriage can move, it should move to center. If the print carriage stays all the way left, unplug the power cord and then plug it back in. This will reset the unit and may allow the print carriage to move from the left.
    2. Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
    3. Remove both print cartridges.
    4. Move the print carriage left and right slightly to verify that the print carriage will move freely. If the print carriage will not move freely, check for obstructions.
    5. Close the print cartridge access door.
    6. Plug the power cord back in.
    7. After the all-in-one initializes, the print cartridge light will flash. Open the access door and install the print cartridges.
    8. Close the print cartridge access door. If the problem returns, remove the print cartridges and wipe the electrical contacts before reinstalling them.
  • Try to make a copy. If it pulls in paper but cannot make a copy, there may be a problem with the scanner mechanism

Same with mine and when I try to look for more jammed paper, there is none. I have wasted an hour messing with it and I tried to call HP and they want $65 to talk to me because my warranty is out of date. Someone, please help us!

If the print out appears to have random black rectangles - the cause is the print head jamming due to a lack of lubrication.

Yes - I know there is a label that says - DO NOT OIL - THIS UNIT PERMANENTLY LUBRICATED - OILING VOIDS WARRANTY - ignore it, or if your printer is under warranty, get it serviced under warranty.

1) Unload the paper.
2) Switch the printer off, open the lid & remove the ribbon.
3) Remove the two screws that hold the front cover and remove it - the control panel cables are long enough to allow it to be moved to the right and rested.
4) Find the two carriage guide rails - usually shiny rods that run from left to right - and support the print head carriage.
5) Wipe the dirt and old lubricant off of the guide rails and add a few drops of light oil - gun oil, sewing machine oil or similar - slide the print head carriage left/right a few times to spread the oil, wipe clean and re-oil
6) Reassemble the printer.

SOURCE: my canon mx310 keeps showing a paper jam alarm and there is no paper jam. how do I fix it?

give this a try

  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.

Documax A3300 printer prints in one place


After years of heavy use the rubber rollers which transport the paper through the printer can get a shine to them and tend to loose their grip. This causes misfeeds and blockages.

Using a damp cloth and something like Jif (slightly abrasive kitchen/bathroom cleaner) rub the rollers whilst rotating them by hand. With a clean damp cloth remove any cleaner and you should see the rubber has lost it's sheen.

Some rollers can be hard to get at but a little patience pays off. I've reclaimed dozens of printers due to be scrapped in this way.

You can also try turning the printer upside down and softly tapping it. You could be surprised at what drops out. My best to date was pieces of an illegal plant substance and a rare Chinese coin. (Yes it was returned to the owner :-)

Tip

How to troubleshoot paper jam problem in printers?


Most common reason are as follows:-- Among the most common problems with any make of printer are paper jams. A printer will jam for any number of reasons: It’s dirty, the wrong paper type is being used, or the rollers on the printer that feed the paper through its pathway are worn down. While cleaning the printer periodically and using the correct paper type are easy fixes, roller replacement can be a difficult job depending on the model of HP printer. For some HP printers, the rollers are easily accessible, but you'll need to completely tear down other models to remove the rollers. Regardless of the cause, when removing a paper jam, always pull the paper in the direction of the paper path, because pulling it backwards can severely damage the printer.

Certain HP printers are more susceptible to paper jams than others. In my experience, any printer that holds the paper vertically and then pulls it down through the printer invariably ends up having paper jam problems. These models aren't designed for heavy use, but many organizations make use of them on individual systems and should be aware of this flaw. In addition, some people have trouble with the newer HP 4000 series printers' paper pickup rollers—which is odd, because the older 4000 and 5000 series HP printers are considered rock solid and don't seem to have any trouble with their pickup rollers.
This will help.good luck.

Fix a paper jam


Printers have a series of 'flags' usually near to the middle of the paper path, these are just little black plastic pegs that are moved when the paper goes through. If one is stuck or trapped with even a tiny scrap of paper then you will get a paper jam error.
Whatever printer you have, start looking for these sensor flags and ensure that they are all free to move.

Kodak 5300 AiO Printer will not work due to paper jam


Looks like the sensor for paper jam is causing you problems.
Worst thing is that Kodak discontinued the whole 5xxx series because of all the problems those printers had.

I don't know if you will be able to fix the problem through Kodak support, I guess you will have to give them a call.

Good luck,

usually it means that a sensor in your fuser is bad. If you have a P.M. Kit replaced the fuser and clean the printer.

but before you do, make sure that you have cleared all jams, including in the fuser.

Its probably time for a Preventive Maintanence
