Re: Paper Jams

Try changing out the toner cartridge if cleaning rollers didn't work.

How do you reset an H5-01 error code on Sharp Color MX2300 Copier.


Most error codes can be cleared by removing the paper jam and then rebooting the machine. When an error code occurs, make a note of the code and then follow the instructions on the control panel for clearing it.

Paper jams can be caused by a variety of issues in the copy machine, but jamming can commonly be caused by improperly loaded paper in the trays or dirty paper feed rollers.

If you get repeated paper jams, remove the paper from the trays and inspect the stack. Look for folded corners, especially on the bottom of the stack. Fan the paper thoroughly and then reload the stack into the tray. Check the paper guides to ensure they are not too tight or too loose. Both conditions can cause paper jams.

If you can see the paper transport rollers by opening the ordinary access covers and panels inside the machine, cleaning them might help reduce paper jams. Shut the machine off and unplug it, then take a soft, lint-free cloth dampened with water and wipe those rollers off. A buildup of toner and paper dust can cause them to slip while transporting the paper.

Hi. Everytime we use a new toner cartridge in our UF590, it works for so long and then has a paper jam evertime it tries to print a fax.

When did you replace the toner crg?
It may be that drum isnt turning, and when paper comes to the drum it jams.
New crg should resolve the problem.

But you also want to check the pick up, feed and separation rollers.

The printer is showing that paper jam but there is no paper in the printer.

Open the tray in the front and remove the toner cartridge, open the back panel and make sure that is is clear as well, and then slide open and closed the paper tray. Now reinsert the toner.

For some reason when this thing jams, if there isn't an actual paper jam then you have to check every panel before it will let you move on. You don't even have to remove any paper half the time...just open and close each panel and remove-reinsert the toner.

When I go to print or copy the machine makes a loud clicking noise and then says paper jam. Brother MFC - 8460 N

The loud clicking noise is either the toner cartridge or the paper feed. If the jam occurs in the drum and toner cartridge then I recommend changing the toner.
If the paper is not being fed at all then you need to have the paper feed kit replaced.

My best guess with the A4 is that the tray guide is not set correctly. Or the machine has been told that your tray has A4 in the tray.
If you resolve the A4 issue, you will most likely resolve the jamming problem since it is looking for a longer piece of paper.
Additionally, take a cloth with a soapy cleaner. Fantastic, some cleaner like that, take out the drum, and toner cartridges and clean all the rollers you can see throughly.
If that doesnt resolve the issue then you may also have some very worn out rollers. See if they feel slick .
