Make sure all trays/doors are shut properly, also make sure the rollers are contacting with the paper

Repeated paper jam for Brother MFC-J475DW


The sensors that report paper jams often get little pieces of paper stuck inside tripping the sensor when jammed sheet gets pulled out. Powering off and restarting will not help this. You'll need to do a little bit of disassembly looking for loose bits of ripped paper. Maybe use canned compressed air to blow it out first.

Tip

Paper Jams


The most common error message is the notorious paper jam message. You do a quick look and then determine there is no jam. What next? Well here is a tip that will save you possible a service call. If you find a sheet of paper that has jammed, look at it closely. It is all together as one piece or is there the tinest of pieces missing? It only takes a tiny piece to cause a jam error. Pull the print cartridge out and with a flashlight look inside the printer and especially at each roller and see if there is any hint of a piece of paper. Look closely because you can miss something. Next open the paper tray and make sure the paper guide is firm against the paper. This will cause a jam. Just drove an hour and a half this week for this issue. The paper guide was not up against the paper causing the jam. If you have a small vacuum I suggest you vacuum out the printer because there are times that the sensors can get covered with paper dust causing them to fail. Hope this helps!

Paper feeds about half way and then stops. All of the indicator lights come on.


If you get a paper jam, the Paper Jam indicator light promptsyou to clear the paper path. If the paper has just started to feed from thepaper feeder when the jam occurs, pull the paper straight up out of the paper feeder. Open and close the printer cover toresume printing. If the paper jam occurs inside the printer, remove the paper from the output bin. Turn the printeroff, then on. If this doesn't clear the jam, open the printer cover.Remove the print cartridge and cover it.For additional assistance, please contactLexmark Technical Support

Paper jam message but no jam seen. Have unplugged from computer and wall. Shut off x 20 minutes. Alarm light shuts off momentarily and then reappears with first printed page.


Paper can be jammed internally.

1) Turn off the printer and disconnect the power cord and USB cable.
2) Open the rear cover. Look for a jam or even little scraps of paper from a previous jam that may be obstructing the paper path.
3) On the front, remove the tray and look into this area. Make sure it is free of any obstructions.
4) Replace tray.
5) Reconnect the USB cable. Power ON.

I hope this helps!

Hp2200D Won't print - "jam" light comes on - but no jam


Have you cleaned the feed roller? If it's dirty it'll spin but won't pick up any paper. Look at the paper after a "jam." Can you see any black roller marks on it? That's a sure sign of a dirty roller. If you suspect a dirty roller, clean it with a little alcohol on a cloth.

Paper jam display


open machine look for an upright lever at the paper in side.... it is called a paper detection switch its function is to detect the position of the paper movement through the machine, if the paper does not trip the switch at the right time the machine will indicate a paper jam and shut down, most machines have this sort of detection system

Minolta keeps jamming


Hi Daryl, what does the paper look like? Is there a "nick" in the leading edge of the paper or any signs of damage to the paper? Remove it carefully an look, but be careful cause the toner isn't fused yet, so it will get on your hands and clothes.

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?
