Re: paper jam

Dear yelly

try this methode

There are 2 different types of flashing patterns with those two lights on the printer.
Resume light and power light BLINKING ALTERNATELY
Problem: Paper is jammed in the printer.
Resume blinking SIMULTANEOUSLY with power light

The print cartridge carriage is stuck.

1. Open the top of the printer.
2. Remove anything that is blocking the carriage path.
3. Turn the printer off.
4. Turn the printer on.

There is something wrong with the printer. (I didn't write it, I am pulling this from actual HP tech documents, so don't blame me on this one) :)
Turn the printer off.
Turn the printer on.
If the printer will not turn off, unplug the power cable from the electrical outlet or wall outlet.
Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer.
Wait about 30 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
Plug the power cord to the back of the printer.

Epson 837 printer error

OK, often when removing a paper jam this can happen:

1) - when pulling the jammed paper out you can leave behind a small piece or loosen up another small piece from a previous jam. This piece can then become the 'new' jam by clogging the jam sensor or switch. Use a small flashlight to look done the previous jammed area to see if this is the case.

2) - when pulling the jammed paper out you can 'mis align' or damage the jam sensor (or switch) so that it always registers a jam. this fix may require a technician or repair shop to fix.

Says paper jam and there is none. wont let me print. tried everything

When you removed thejammed paper the paper sensor might still be stuck in an active position.
Have to pull it back in place. Just have to follow the paper path and find out where it is.

My printer keeps on jamming, says I need to re-align the paper, which i've done but the paper won't feed through. Someone please help. Thank you! Anna

Try cleaning all the rollers with 90% rubbing alcohol, as well as any tight spaces on the printer... Use Q tips. Also inspect rubber rollers for wear and replace any worn ones (they're not expensive).

You may also have some paper jammed deep in there. taking the printer apart and cleaning everything with rubbing alcohol should solve that.
