My Samsung SCX-4521 boots up and always flashes this message. I've checked the paper exit area and can't see any thing that is jammed. I've looked both in the front and the back. Could it be that a senser is malfunctioning? Any advice is appreciated.
Machine insists that there is a "Paper Jam 2" and I can't see any stuck paper anywhere. The problem started after there was an actual paper jam, which I believe I corrected. I have opened the front & back doors, pulled out the toner cartridge, pulled out the paper drawer, turned the machine off & on, etc. Can't see any paper anywhere, but the message persists.

Re: Samsung SCX-4521 "Paper Jam 2" won't clear
Hi there have you tried the door at the back of the machine as there
maybe a piece stuck in the fuser unit. If not open the back door and
check that there is a small black lever in the middle of the two
rollers sticking up as this is the sensor arm that determines that
there is a paper jam or not. If this is still there then the paper will
be stuck just after the paper cassette within the paper path.
Hope this helps you.
Goodluck, please don't forget to rate me as fixya..

On the document that you are trying to print, go to the very last word, of the last page.. hold the shift key down & use your down arrow to highlight anything below, no matter how long it may be highlighting white space. Hit your back arrow once. Check the last word for punctuation & spelling, resale your document & try to print again.
A lot of times in the course of 'composing', extra carriage returns or tabs or spaces, are added to the bottom of the document. I have just explained how to clear the second page printing. It may also remove the erroneous codes that may have formed.
Rebooting a printer has the same good effect as rebooting your computing device. It clears up a lot of confusion that has stacked up since the last time you did it.
If you have printed labels with this same printer, you may have part of a label throwing off the paper path. Also make sure that the paper guides in your paper bin or manual feed area are close, but not touching or pinching the paper. This can cause paper to go off of its normal print path.
Good day, Check the table below about the problem of paper jams.
[Paper Jam 0] - Paper has Jammed in the feeding area of the paper input tray. [Paper Jam 1] - Paper has jammed in the fuser area or in the manual feeder. [Paper Jam 2] - Paper has jammed in the paper exit area.
I had this problem too. For me the answer turned out to be the paper sensor in the back part of the machine, behind the little back door just under the top part of the machine. This sensor hangs down from a thin rod that runs across the width of the machine, and is held in place by a small spring that encircles the same rod that supports the finger. The finger had apparently gotten moved so the spring was dislodged from its proper place. I was able to rotate it around the rod with my finger & get the spring moved back to where it should be. This seems to have cleared the problem--I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
