Re: Jam At A

Printers have sensors that tell the main board where the paper is, if a sensor is stuck or broken it will say jam, the question is where "A" is, look in the manual and see if you can find it, it will be either an optical or moving plastic.

hope this helps
good luck

I have a Xerox Phaser 6180 MFP, and it keeps saying paper jam and there is no jam, what can I do?

Check the fuser for paper stuck in it.

Check that the 'paper out' sensor arm (in the fuser) is not broken. If it IS broken, you'll need a new fuser.

I have a Tektronic Color Laser Printer Model 740. I am getting an error message 33. I have replaced twice the transfer roller (new), cleaned and vacumed the the interior of the paper feed unit. I have...

the paper jamming problem is generic to most printer models of this capability. one way to circumvent this is to use a multimedia-tray while printing.

the reason is probably the two springs that hold down a silver metal pressure roller in the feeding unit. The tension is uneven due to old springs and the paper pulls crooked. If you follow the paper path in the fedder mechanism, you will see the roller I am referring to. The springs are at either end of this bar.
If you are good mechanically, you can replace the springs yourself, although they are a ***** to get back on (some disassembly required).
try this for details on doing it.

Error message keeps appearing "paper jam in tray 2" although there is definitely no paper jam.

If you did not get ALL the jammed sheet out, there is still a small piece of paper in there somewhere, probably covering a sensor or micro switch. Get a torch and look carefully. If you don't find anything you may need to disassemble the printer to find it.
