Two issues here... and your printer is probably ok:
The teardrop is an inkdrop, meaning that there is a problem with an ink cartridge or out of ink. It is probably not related to the paper jams, but the cartridge may have been dislodged by a huge paper jam.
If you are sure the paper jams are clear and the cartridges have been re-seated, then turn OFF and unplug your printer power for ten minutes to reset it.

I am positive there is no paper jam with my printer (Z2420) but message of paper jam still appears and it won't let me clear it.


Sometimes a very small piece of paper can still be in the printer paper path after clearing a jam especially if the paper tears while removing the jam. The piece of paper may be too small to notice. Try blowing out the paper area with compressed air. Other causes could be the thickness of paper you are trying to print on, ie photo paper, thicker bond paper. Make sure the print settings match the paper thickness. I have a Lexmark laser printer, and I will get feed problems if the settings are not set for the correct paper type.

I hope this helps.

I keep getting an error message about a paper jam for my printer but there is absolutely no paper jammed anywhere in the machine.


Have you tried a new toner cartridge, The toner cartridge has moving parts, and of the cartridge gets stuck, the printer may indicate a paper jam.

Also paper often tears when clearing jams, and the little shreds of paper can stay in the rollers of the printer and keep it jammed. Make sure to inspect all the rollers to make sure they move freely, and do not have anything stuck in them.

I have a paper jam many pieces went through the printer and won't budge. I don't see a way to get to where the paper is stuck


Unplug the printer from the power source to turn it off. Open the printer cover to access the cartridge area. If you see the paper jam, slowly and carefully pull the paper out of the printer. Avoid tearing the paper or avoid leaving torn pieces in the printer. This will cause future paper jams in the printer.
When all is clear, re-plug the printer into the power source. Load some paper and try to print again.

I have a Lexmark x2600 printer and when I stated printing many pieces went through and then jammed and won't move in either direction, the paper is really jammed in and I don't see any way to get...

Tips: Use only paper that is in good condition. Fan the paper before loading into the feeder to prevent sticking together. Use the specified media type and sizes for your model. Don't overload the feeder.

I keep getting a "Error


Hi,

You can download the manual for the MP240 printer here:
http://files.canon-europe.com/files/soft33024/manual/MP240%20series%20On-screen%20Manual%20(EN).pdf

According to the manual, and some forums I have read, the 5100 error is caused by a problem with the print head / cartridge assembly not being able to move correctly.

Can you check if the print head / fine cartridges are seated correctly and nothing is obstructing them or causing a jam.

Can the print head / cartridge assembly move smoothly side to side along its track.

Can you check the inside of the printer for any foreign objects that might have fallen in and are causing a jam?

Some of the solutions I have found suggest using a drop of oil on the track that the print head moves along (a light machine oil such as 3-in-1). Be very careful and only use 1 small drop as a little goes a long way.

Please let me know if this helps and if not I will keep looking for you.

Many thanks,

Chris

Paper keeps ripping on the side on normal one sided printing. Duoble sided printing paper just rips up and jams.


sounds like some tron parper was stuck inside and has contributed to more paper tearing. First check for any paper jams, and check inside for and broken or damages items, causing paper to tear.

Paper jam


give this a shot
  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.
