Some times there is a little piece of paper stuck in there.

I don't know what make/model of printer you have but this ussually works.

Unplug the printer, switch the paper lever to the envelope setting, take a strip (about an inch wide should work) of card stock and run it up (the opposite direction that the paper runs) through the paper path, sliding it back and forth, it should dislodge anything that is stuck in there.

It is sort of like flossing the printer, but don't be too rough with it, you don't want any of those little parts to come off.

When you are done plug it back in and see if it works.

    I forgot to add, switch the lever back from envelope to the regular paper setting.

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.

If paper is jammed, a Paper jam message will appear on the control panel display.

Follow these steps to clear the jam:

  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out of the output tray or sheet feeder.

  2. If the paper is stuck inside, turn off the Epson Stylus CX.

  3. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the Epson Stylus CX back on.

    alert_note.gif Note: Be sure to check the far left of the carriage area when checking for jammed paper. Paper that is jammed there may be hidden from view.
If paper jams inside the Automatic Document Feeder, clear the jam as follows:

  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover and remove any jammed paper.

  2. If necessary, lift the document cover and remove any paper that has jammed inside.

I keep getting a paper jam message even though the paper is not jammed.


There's a sensor arm under the white guide plates behind the platen roller that gets bent or broken when you remove a jam, especially if you pull paper backwards to remove a jam. If you can't straighten it you need a shop to replace the sensor arm.

Paper jam while printing on BROTHER MFC-290C all-in-one


hey

try this
  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.

Paper Jam


Some basic non-tech questions:
  • Are you using paper that's been allowed to sit open for weeks? It might have absorbed water.
  • Are you in the habit of reusing paper that's double-fed? I used to, but it's more likely to jam
  • When was the last time the technician was in to do a preventive maintenance? The machine may need a basic clean-and-check.
  • Check your manual, and check what the machine is telling you (on the display, if it has one). The location of the jam may give you an idea of the reason for the jam (jamming at the fuser may indicate a cold fuser, jamming at the drum can be caused by broken separation fingers, etc.) If you have a technician, this will be useful information.

False Paper Jam Message


Probably a jam sensor is dirty or stuck. Look through the paper path for a stuck plastic sensor arm, or dirt or paper dust on photocell typr sensors.Paper sensors are normally located near where paper feeds, and where it exits the machine. The paper must pass over these sensors as it travels through the machine.If a scrap of paper is left on the sensors, they will report it as a jam. If you can, try manually pushing a sheet of paper through the printer, ONLY in the direction it normally feeds. This may free up a stuck sensor arm, or force out the jammed scrap.
