MF5500 Paper Jams Everywhere

I'm not able to copy via the feeder or glass plate. The alarm light blinks and says "Rec. Paper Jam", & tells me to open the front door. I've worked through the manuals Troubleshooting section to no avail.

Can someone please help before I throw this thing out the window?

How can I fix a paper jam in my Panasonic 4530 ?


look inside the printer, some where in or around where the paper feeds from the area there is a piece of paper that is stuck or has ripped off inside the machine, you going have to look with flashlight follow the feed rollers and you will find paper, paper clip, a staple, dirt, something blocking the rollers or feeder from working right.

Rec paper jam is shown on the machine but we can't find a paper jam any where. Our machine is a Canon Laser Class 8500. Any suggestions?


Open and close all doors and trays, making sure that there are no jams, and that nothing is caught in the paper feeder. Unplug the machine, and press the power switch for at least 5 seconds. Plug the machine back in and power up.

Paper jam


Open the paper tray and remove the first couple of sheets of paper - If the paper tray is fully loaded leave it half full.

HP Officejet J5780 All-in-one Injet prints a grey line down the right side of the page when copying using the automatic document feeder. It does not show up when printing; and it does not show up when...


lift the feed area and look at the small glass plate where the auto feed paper is actually scanned. That needs a good cleaning. Since the paper runs across it even a tiny little obstruction such as paper left from a paper jam or a dot of ink from that pen you used to unstick that last paper jam (maybe its just me??). That one dot turns into a line when the paper rolls across it. Clean well and the line will dissappear.

Rec paper jam message.


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavypaper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the printbutton applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so itwill feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases Ihave been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited thereover time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers thisway, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

I have an MP210 Canon printer.  It is saying E 3.  The alarm light is on.  When I try to print, it says there's a paper jam; there isn't.  Help?


i had this problem, i was convinced that there was no paper stuck in it, and in my frustration i ended up tilting it backwards and banging it on the table. i found a pen was lodged in the paper feeder. I was so relieved, until the error code was still flashing. then i stuck my hand down the paper feeder (take the paper out first) and found the smallest piece of paper stuck in it. try this.

i am so relieved.

Dell 1600n Will only print with sheet feeder open


Rollers may be worn out and not properly grabbing paper or a gear may be broken. You should be able to inspect by lifting cover to feeder and watching as paper is pulled through.
