Question about Dell 3100cn Laser Printer
I am getting the message "Paper Jam Reg1" and "Open Reg Cover". Just before this happened, four sheets fed at once and all caught in Reg1. I was able to remove them intact although it took quite a pull. I am using the letter tray for cardstock, and I normally get away with it, if I am willing to put up with having a false jam signal after nearly every sheet. I can't use the MFU because it is totally hosed and makes a very loud racket if I send something through it.
My theory is that when the four sheets of paper jammed in Reg1, it tripped certain sensors that didn't reset or were damaged.
I have tried power off/wait a few minutes/power on, but it didn't solve the problem.
Switch off power to printer and switch on again, worked for me

I had this and tried the following, I emptied the paper drawer and MPF tray and then remove the paper drawer from the printer, there are little latches on the upper inside of the paper drawer. thenmade sure there was no debris, and re-installed the paper drawer and the problem went away
