Where is the paper jam when the panel of our Lexmark C750 says "200 paper jam"


Primary: Paper is jammed at the printer input sensor. Open the printer left door to access the paper jam. If sheets have been accumulated to be stapled or offset when the jam occurred, the printer alternately flashes the primary and secondary messages to indicate that all accumulated sheets not be removed during the jam clearing procedure.
Secondary: When this message is displayed, do not remove accumulated sheets during the jam clearing procedure as the printer will not reprint the removed sheets. Also, if the accumulated sheets are removed, the portion of the job printed after the jam will not be stapled.

My Epson LQ-590/LQ-2090 keeps having paper jams located just beyond the tractor feed.. help


When a paper jam occurs during printing for some reason, the printer beeps, displaying the message <PAPER JAM> in the display. When a paper jam occurs, remove the jammed paper using the following procedure, and then resume the job. If the message that indicates the paper jam does not disappear even after removing the jammed paper following the procedure, there is a possibility that torn pieces of paper are still left inside the printer. Inspect each part of the printer again, and completely remove all pieces of jammed paper.
