Hi Everyone
I had this very annoying issue today. Checked everything and there seemed to be nothing wrong. Everything was clean!!! I was so annoyed.

Then I took the best solution listed up top and solution # 3. I turned off my printer. Switched the paper guide to A4. Folded my piece of paper as state in "Best Solution". I really made sure the paper was in the rollers.

I opened the top of my printer to be able to see the paper inside the printer. I turned the printer on. As soon as the printer rollers started going. I started to gently pull the paper from the inside.

The paper got caught in the rollers and the printer started going. Out came a piece of cereal that my daughterhad stuck in there that i could not see!!!!!

Now it is working fine!!!!!
good luck!

    Worked for me as well. I didn't fold the paper, just moved a regular sheet of paper around until the rollers grabbed it and pulled it through. Turned out to a small speck of some unidentified object that got mashed up came out with the leading edge of the paper. Fed another couple of sheets of paper through until it came out clean.

Brilliant i tried this solution and now it works!!!
Opened up the printer, switched on the the printer (as if i was going to change the ink cartridges) and then fed a folded up piece of paper through the printer. It gathered up something which was clogging the printer and now operates as before.

Just power on the printer and force a single sheet of paper through the rollers.

OOPS!!! That should have been paper guide all way to the LEFT. Sorry. Good luck!

I had exactly the same problem, printer virtually new, printed great for a couple of weeks, then today refused to take paper with E3 flashing. No apparent blockage - all looked clean, tried all the utilities, roller cleaning and plate cleaning, but wouldn't take paper!
Solved it by moving the paper size guide all the way to the right, then folding the top 20mm of a sheet of A4 over and loading it so fold is at the top facing you. This acts as a catcher for anything stuck in the printer. Hold the paper slightly crooked with the left side slightly further into the printer and press the copy button (with nothing in the scanner!). It should draw the paper in now (with some persuasion) and think it is printing (it's blank,of course). Check as the top of the sheet goes in that the fold is still tight and doesn't open up as it feeds in. Lo and behold, mine brought out a 5p piece - printer now prints perfectly!

Try good quality paper, sounds simple, but this is the cause of more than 80% of paper handling issues.

Paper jam problem


Remove the back cover and put an index card thru where the paper goes, that should push out any left over scraps.

Paper Jam message on every print job.


I have the same printer without the doc feeder. Check the paper trail thru the printer for the paper sensor lever hanging up. It gets pushed up by the paper and can stick, making the printer think it still has paper in it. Pulling the cart unsticks it till you print again.

False paper jam


Try cleaning the feed rollers with some alcohol on a lint free cloth. You may have some debris on the rollers.

Paper Jam


try this

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Paper Jam


Remove all the paper from the paper tray so that nothing gets sucked up in there while you're working. Hit the cancel button a few times until the screen clears itself and goes back to the "Print", "Copy", "Scan" option screen.

On your computer, if the printer option screen is up (depending on what kind of computer you have, a small screen might pop up to tell you the print progress), hit cancel or clear on any of the lines that say "Paper jam", if there are any.

The next time you print something, only put as many pieces of paper in the feed as you need to print. This should eliminate a lot of the chance of actually getting a paper jam.

Please respond again if this didn't help. I'm not sitting in front of my own computer right now, so I might not be following the same steps that I usually take.

Paper jams


Fan your paper.

Fan:
Meaning take the paper in your hand and wave it around or page thru the papers, This puts air between the paper to prevent jams.

Make sure you do not over due the paper in the tray. Try lighter paper weight.
