The following is general advice that applies to removing paper jams in most printers, copiers, etc.

Switch off the printer at the wall and unplug it. Remove the paper tray from the printer. Check to see if the printer has an access door in the rear to allow you to see inside (open it). Open any other external flaps (eg. manual paper feed tray) that will allow you to see inside. Open any internal flaps or levers designed for user operation and usually indicated with a green or orange coloured tab.

Always remove jammed paper by pulling it in the direction of normal travel only. Don't try to pull it out against the direction that it entered the printer. Sometimes rollers inside the machine have a knob (usually coloured green or orange) that can be used to manually wind the page through the printer or fax. Always turn in direction of arrow indicated only.

After removing page, return all levers, flaps, doors, paper trays etc to original positions, reconnect power to the printer and test

Paper jam


Hi. This could be sendor is failing or there is a jammed paper on you printer.

How to removed jammed paper

1.Unplug all cables (USB and power)
2.Turn around the printer
3.In the back there should be a small door that on my printer (SCX-4300) flips upside.
4.Look for any jammed paper.
5.Pull out the jammed paper.

Here's how to fix the sensor

Unplug everything from the back and then remove the four screws from the back panel. Pull the panel out but watch that the on/off switch doesn't hang the cover up.Once off, I removed the screw from the mount holding the right end of the sensor stick while holding the mount in place with my finger. When the screw is out, lift the mount up and carefully slide it off of the stick. Carefully rotate the spring, topside away until the left side of the spring catches the sensor piece. Now rotate the other end of the spring once more around the stick and while holding it at the top of the stick (12 o'clock) slide the mount back on. With the mount in place, release the spring and it will come to rest on the mount. Refasten the mount and check for light tension on the sensor. If it pushes forward when you release it, you're good to go. Refasten the back panel, attach all wires and enjoy.

Have a good one!

Paper keeps shifting during loading and eventually gets jammed every time


Seems like the rollers are either dirty, or worn out. Probably the latter.

Lexmark x 3350 all-in-one


I picked up a used Lexmark 3500 with the same problem. Had requested help fixing.

Tried to feed more paper through - still pulling hard on the right side. Tried to feed several pieces of paper - one at a time, getting them jammed then pulling them back out. Finally one got jammed way down in there - yanked it back out. Open the top(as to load ink cartridges) Saw a tiny piece of paper sticking out between the plastic rollers, got a small crochet hook (tweezers would have worked), grabbed a hold of it and pulled it out enough to get a good hold of it, then pulled it out. There had been a shread of paper jammed in the roller area. 3" long by from 1/4" to 1 1/2" wide.

My problem was the chunk of paper stuck in the roller mechanism where you could not see it or get to it, until it was partially forced out.

Hope this helps someone else!

It says the paper is jammed, but there's no paper in it!!


This is an awesome printer. Did you know it can duplex (print on both sides of the paper) automatically? The jam "could" be in the duplexer on the back or, the duplexer unit isn't locked into place.

Unplug the printer and open the rear door, check for visible paper jam, remove, close door.

There's also access to the feed mechanism from the bottom of the printer.

Unplug printer.

(1) Remove the Cassette. (paper tray on bottom of printer)

If the paper is loaded in the Auto Sheet Feeder (on back of printer), remove the paper from the Auto Sheet Feeder and close the Paper Support.
(2) Stand the machine with the left side down.
(3) Slowly pull the jammed paper out while pulling the green cover toward you.


Caution
Set the machine back to its original position immediately after removing the jammed paper.
(4) If any paper is sticking out of the Cassette, reload the paper in the Cassette.
Reload paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder, if necessary.
(5) Insert the Cassette into the machine.
(6) Press the OK button on the machine.


Some of these instructions were copied from the online/downloadable printer manual from Canon's web site: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/

RECURRING PAPER JAM - BROTHER MFC 5860 CN


I just bought the 5860 and have this issue right out of the gates. I discovered that the back lid causes the paper jam when using the bottom tray while examing with a flash light during a print job. I dislodged the back plate/lid (same lid you remove to pull paper jam out) out about 10mm and fastened the lid loosely to the back with a piece of tape on each side. The paper from the bottom tray does not slam against the back of the printer any more, thus more freedom of movement and no jams. Just successfully printed an 80 page document. You shouldn't have to do this with a new printer but I got it so cheap with all the rebates that I'm going to keep it and live with this fix. To sum up, the problem is a design flaw where the removable back plate is snapped in too tightly and contacts the bottom tray paper roller (& paper) during a print cycle. To fix you need to clear the path by pulling the back lid out slightly and taping each side with scotch tape to 'suspend'the back plate out about 10mm.a5999d3.jpg

Samsung SCX-4521 "Paper Jam 2" won't clear


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.

NP 6030 paper jam


It may be this simple:

1- as silly as it may seem, are you sure the size  is correct, if it is a letter size paper and it says legal, it will jam. open the paper tray and make sure the guides are snug againgst the paper,

does it say letter (or legal) for the tray you are going to use, if they do not correspond then look behind the tray inside the machine, is there a paper jammed in the back?

 

Or not so easy

2-You are having a sensor problem, take a look at the duplex tray,

pull it out and look at the sensors ( black little levers that stick out) are there any pieces of paper, can you move them and they spring back into place?
