After removing the paper roller to clear a jam, I am unable to re-insert the roller without it sitting in there too tight to roll the paper. Is there a trick to this?

1) if you have a vacuum cleaner try use vacuum cleaner to suck the paper out.
2) IF YOU CAN TOUCH THE ROLLER, TRY TO ROLL THE ROLLER TO ROLL OUT THE PAPER.

Clear paper jam pcr t2000


It\'s very unusual for the paper to jam as this machine uses a clam shell type of printer. Just raise the printer arm and remove the paper roll. Clear any paper from the print head and roller etc. Tear any wrinkled paper from the roll and then refit the roll with the shiny side of the paper towards you. Lay the paper in the printer and close the printer arm down onto the paper. If you are setting the journal side, wind some paper onto the takeup spool after it exits the printer and sit the spool into place.

CAUTION: Never pull jammed paper from the front of the product. Pulling paper from inside the front cover can cause mechanical damage to the product. Always access and clear paper jams through the rear access door.

I have a aficio 200 and it is showing a fault misfeed at a and i have removed the paper but it seems to be stuck at that point


If after clearing the jam; the machine warms up, trys to feed again, and jams. There is something causing it to jam. This could be a feed roller, clutch, or sensor. If the jam never clears; you likely have a small chunk of paper sitting on a sensor, or a faulty sensor. Get a flashlight and take a good look into the "a" section, its a tight area but also short, so finding the paper shouldn't be too hard if there is some in there. Getting it out may require a long screw driver or canned air.

HP 7680 paper jam


I spent 21/2 hours with the HP tech support - with their recomendation to upgrade my 14 month old computer to the bigger model because the screen reads "paper jam". I have had this printer replaced once already, 1 week after I received it for a defective doc feeder. I decided to take things into my own hands - First of all, no paper was ever located in the paper jam area. Several soft resets by shutting down for 20+ seconds, then pressing #6 at start up resulted in any improvement - the screen continued to read "paper Jam....." the HP tech was unable to offer any practical suggestions.

I turned the machine upside down after removing the document feeder and examined the rollers at the back of the rear tray where the paper jam was supposed to be. I noticed that there was some black residue on the gears and although the machine was off and unplugged - the rollers / gears would not roll freely and seemed to get stuck. I cleaned them thoroughly with an old but clean toothbrush and water. (don't grease the gears - I've heard it eats the plastic) - until the rollers would freely roll when I moved the gray rubber rollers.

Returned the machine to correct position - and turned it on - "paper jam" message returned but the machine was sounding different than it had - so I did another soft reset (unplug from wall and printer for 20 seconds, then holding #6 for a few seconds while plugging back in and now I can print. The printer went through its maintenance cycle and did a realignment. I can print and everything is working fine at this time.

I hope that this will help someone. I couldn't find any information on how to repair the printer and HP seems to be all about producing junk and convincing you to "upgrade" at a cost of $2-300. When this one does finally go - I won't be buying an HP!

The 7680 jams a lot and the document feeder has a lot to be desired. It has trouble feeding straight and if there is a jam anywhere in the machine - it is always difficult removing the paper without tearing it and creating more problems and waste of time.

My printer is a MFC-685CW made by Brother. We cleared a paper jam and unplugged it as it suggests to do in our user manual. Our screen still says Unable to Print AF. Can someone help, this is very...


One of the main causes for paper jams is the presence of dirt, dust, or debris in your toner cartridge. The paper coming into the cartridge would get stuck. So clean your printer regularly. Remove the dust from the printer. Also find out whether any jams occurred in the sensor hole in the upper part of the rotating drum. Do not touch the roller while cleaning. If the oil in your body gets into the roller, the printing media cannot roll over it properly and you can't get rid of the printer problem.

Panasonic Fax Phone Can't send or Receive fax


there maybe a small paper jam in the machine that you are missing. if you are handy, unplug the fax machine and look around where the paper is fed into. if you see paper trapped anywhere, try pulling it out with a pair of needle nose pliers. the machine will not work right till the jam is cleared.
hope this helps.
