Hello there
This could do the trick

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Possible causes of the problem:
- Tiny paper or something is stuck in your printer.
- Your printer roller may have dirt on it.

Solutions:
-There may be a very tiny bit of paper stuck somewhere - look very carefully. Also, open all areas and then close them - sometimes a printer has to have that before it resets from a jam. Check your paper to see if it is being grabbed by the rollers. if they are dirty or worn, the paper will not catch and the printer thinks it is jammed. wipe the rollers with a bit of alcohol on a paper towel (barely damp) if that is the case.

SOURCE: paper jam, and I don't

I had the same problem.  I had removed all the visible paper and when it came back on made some awful noises and flashed "paper jam".
I even moved the roller forward and backward (after having uplugged the device.  I did this repeatedly and the "paper jam" alert continued (along with the awful noise).
As a last resort I thought I would just take it apart and hope to get it back together but figured it was a sensor or something along that line if I could not find any paper anywhere 

with the machine unplugged (it would not shut down), I opened the lid I used a flashligt to look around trying to figure out how to take it apart.
It then dawned on me that I had not moved the print head over and using a screwdriver I gently pushed it to the center of the bar.  When I looked inside with a flashlight, there was the paper jam way inside under the cover.
I used some needlenose to reach in and took the paper out and it is now working fine.
I hope this helps, but you may have to search really deep into the device.

SOURCE: Paper Jam error will not reset after removing jammed paper

In many cases, you must use compressed air in a can, and blow out the insides of the printer. These printers use photoelectronic eye technology to tell you when there is no paper left, or other supplies are used up. But unless you clear that out by blowing air through and past those sensors, they do not reset. The paper dust continues to block the sensor which makes it report that there is no paper, that there is a paper jam, etc.
Try clearing it out that way.

SOURCE: Paper jammed (Dell lase Printer 1720dn

Open the back cover and look for paper wrapped around a roller back there. That is the most common cause of the issues with this machine. The other thing you can try is to push down on the little flaps where the paper comes out of the printer. These get stuck and need cleaning/replacement all the time in the later life of these models (1720's).

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.

My HP Laserject 5100 Printer has the Paper Jam Problem. After that, I check printer. But i haven't seen any paper jam. When i print out, nothing show on paper and show the paper jam.. How to fix?


Hi,

This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

Try two things:

Fan the paper before placing in the tray.

Raise the humidity in the room to at least 40% to avoid electrostatic sticking of the paper. Store paper in 40% humidity area.
