Re: Paper Jam...and no paper is in side

I've just fixed this on my x5470. I unplugged the power. Then I manually forced a thick piece of card through the printer. it was a bit fiddly and quite inky. But something like a piece of dead moth was dislodged. This wasn't visible beforehand. Now it is working again.

When printing documents no matter how few or how many pages, paper gets stuck in the middle of printing.

Try using regular paper on unit as specified by Samsung. If that does not resolve the issue then the hassle lies with the paper feed mechanism. Often a good cleaning of all the rollers in the path can take care of the issue.

Paper jam???

Follow these steps :
Remove all paper from the trays. This will prevent further jams during the clearing.
Remove the covering to the printer's outer case to expose the jam. Locate the jammed paper to ensure there is not another problem causing the stall.
Pull gently on the jammed paper, taking care not to tear it. In most cases, this will remove the jam.
Press the flashing "Printer Jam" button. This will allow the rotors to turn and facilitate the release of the jam.
Turn off the printer and firmly pull on the jammed paper. Be careful not to tear it.
Remove remaining paper shreds. if a tear occurs, remove any residual paper that may hamper printing.
Refill the paper tray and try printing again. If the jam persists, repeat the process and search for more paper.

Paper jam/no paper fed

make sure the photo paper is in glossy side face down,
set the paper type to photo.

If it keeps jamming it's because the paper feed is probably dirty and not taking the paper properly

Printer keeps saying paper jam even after all doors are cleared of paper jam. Reset didn't work.

Dear, there is very minor mechanical fault but it is better to visit the repair shop to fix it.

Best regards

Lexmark x1270 paper jam

hah - I had this problem on my old 1270 - there is a jam - its just very small - mine was caused by half a peanut lodged under a pickup roller - take the back paper guide off and check carefully - it might just be a piece of grit - the paper will skew away from the point of the jam so see where it skews and check around there

hope this helps, cheers

. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge inside the all-in-one printer to dissipate before putting your hands or any metal tools inside the chassis.

Pin down the exact location of the jam. The 3 hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and print carriage or between the print carriage and output tray.

Take off the front paper tray if the sheet jammed while still in the front area of the printer. If here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

Pull the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a piece deeper inside the machine.

Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed-tray area and print carriage. Carefully remove the jammed paper.

Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside the printer. You may need to remove the print carriage to get to the jam.

Replace all parts and return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.
