Flashing light indicating there is a paper jam but NO paper jamming the printer.


There is more than likely a small, or small pieces of paper jammed somewhere within the unit. open up all covers and take a good thorough look with a flash light. even the smallest piece can trigger this error.

Keeps saying there is a paper jam


Unplug the printer and open all the access panels. Using a small flashlight may help. Carefully check all areas inside the printer for a stray piece of paper logged somewhere inside. You may need a small pair of pliers or tweezers to remove the piece of paper.

When clearing jams ensure you find the entire piece of paper that was jammed in the printer.

When your done, be sure to securely replace all parts removed from the printer and properly close all the access panels.

Paper is jammed in my printer - HP Laser jet 3055 --- cannot seem to clear -- don't know how to get at the jam.....can you tell me how to lift the area where the jam is?????


The panel on the back of the printer should pop out and you can get to the paper jam throught there. Make sure you get all the peices out cuz sometimes all it takes it one very small piece of paper to make it not work.

Error code 3528 keeps coming up,telling me to remove back cover and remove paper jam then replace back cover.there is no paper jam,checked printer heads no paper anywhere? and paper is not low????


Check the complete paper path very carefully, it only takes a small fragment of paper stuck somewhere to signal a paper jam. Also check that the paper sensors have returned to their normal positions. See that the printer has not picked up a second sheet of paper and this is somewhere in the path.

Rec. Paper Jam slide platen left


There may still be a small sliver of paper somewhere along the paper path. It only takes one small piece to interfere with the mechanism that detects jams and causes the copier to stop working. Since the copier gives you an indication of where the jam is occurring, I would focus my attention in that area, removing trays, using a small flashlight to get a really good look inside.

How do I get fix a "carriage jam"?


I was able to run run a piece of photo paper through a couple of times and printer now seems to be working again. The theory was that running a heavy piece of paper through might help clear little piece of paper that was not visible. The photo paper is less likely to tear if it gets jammed too.

Lexmark x4270 paper jam


Have you looked inside the roller assembly. More often then not a small piece of paper will get stuck deep inside the roller assembly. This will lead to paper jam errors. Inspect more closely. You will probably find some tiny tidbit somewhere.

Hp Color LaserJet 3500 Paper Jam


The only way to find paper remnants is to unplug the printer and inspect the paper path. It also helps to have a good focusing flashlight, skinny needle nose pliers, a can of compressed air (used sparingly) and a long thin probe. Your specific printer should be giving you jam messages with a location code as well. I?ve attached a link to an HP page containing a diagram of the 3500 paper path and the error code jam locations: http://h41206.www4.hp.com/webapps/IV3/node.iv?locale=en_us&prodSeriesId=315862&node=prodITRC%2FNL_HW_IPG_plakCLJ3500_EN_01_E%2FN1%7C6%7C9&prodTypeId=18972&serverId=1#src I solved this problem in my shops years ago by not letting anyone else clear jams OR insisting that any paper removed as a result of a jam is given to me. If any corners or pieces are missing I know what to look for and approximately where. Good hunting and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Jamming


Hi Scott, My experience is if there was a jam and it still says it's jammed after clearing the paper you missed some. Even if the sheet that caused the last jam didn't tear it may have moved a torn piece of paper that was in there from before. Check again, really well for small pieces of paper stuck somewhere. Hope that helps. If not let me know and I'll see what else we can do. El Duderino
