    There is no error code, just paper jam. I have never seen this, there is usually always some kind of code to tell you where the paper is jammed, but since there is not a paper jam maybe that is why there is no code.

Hi,

  1. Turn off the HP product and turn it around so the back of the unit faces you.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the all-in-one. The power cord must be disconnected to allow the paper feed rollers to turn freely.
  3. Locate and open the rear access door by pressing in on the left side tab and then pulling the door toward you. Figure 2: Removing the rear access door

Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door. Click How to Buy on this page to order replacement parts.
  1. From the rear access door opening, remove the jammed paper.
  2. Remove the remaining paper from the paper supply tray. Discard any paper that is damaged or crumpled and then re-stack and reload the paper into the paper supply tray.
  3. Reinstall the rear access door.
  4. Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on.

The following information will help prevent paper jams from occurring:
  • Never use paper that is torn or wrinkled.
  • If you are having problems using paper that has already been printed on once (recycling), replace it with new paper.
  • Remove and then reinstall the rear access door. Verify that the access door is fully locked in place. The paper can skew if the rear access door is not locked.
  • Every six months to one year, clean the paper feed rollers with a rag lightly moistened with water. Over time the paper feed rollers accumulate dust and do not function as well as they once did.
  • When printing envelopes, tuck the flap into the envelope and crease the folds before printing.
Goodluck..

Is there an error code with the jam error?

Also could be a stuck sensor, I know you said you cleaned the sensor, but look them over again, and look for sensors you may have missed. Open all doors and panels and look for sensors, especially in the fuser area.

Otherwise may be a faulty sensor so the printer believes there is paper in the path, with the specific error code I may be able to pinpoint the sensor.

1. Check the duplexer and the rear area of the printer for obstructions or damage.
2. Check the duplexer for proper operation. Replace the duplexer if a sensor is defective.

I BOUGHT A USED RICOH AFICIO COLOR 3006 COPIER FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA YESTERDAY. WHEN I TURN THE COPIER ON, I GET AN ERROR CODE SC456. WHAT DOES IT MEAN AND HOW DO I FIX IT?


Hi there

The error code 456 - Paper transfer unit position error.
If you cannot find any jammed paper in the unit, you may need a Ricoh service guy to give it just that. A good service

Paper jam


open all door in your printer , front and back. , look for paper stuck inside and remove it. Sometimes small pieces of paper are difficult to be found.
If it is a Laser printer, you will also need to remove the toner and paper try and look for jammed papert underneat.
Once you done, restart the machine.
If you still have paper jam error try unplugging printer from power outlet for 5 minutes then restart.
If you still get error, then either there is paper inside or your printer may be faulty.

Brothe MFC-240C paper jam error msg won't clear


















**, it is not fixed. I followed instructions on Brother web site and was able to find a piece of paper near the printhead, so I removed it. The printer makes a grinding sound when it tries to print and the same paper jam error returns and can't be cleared. I beleive that the printer repair cost will be more expensive than replacing it with a different printer, and it won't be Brother brand. I probably would not be able or have the tools to do any complicated repair job.

I have an HP Photosmart 8050 printer that gives me a paper jam message after each print job


Hi,
i,d suggest that the paper sensor is faulty.
try unplugging your printer, and setting it back up.
alternatively, hold down the paper-jam button if it,s flashing.

"Out of Paper" problem


Hi,
i,d suggest the paper sensor that you,ve disabled is suspect.
Alternatively, could be a cabling error.
Try a new printer cable, if this fails uninstall remove completely all software and printer, along with cabling. start computer/shutdown. re setup the whole printer as a new installation. if non of this works. Bin it and buy a new printer.
Finally if you,ve got standard windows 98. upgrade to 98se. might help.

Paper Jam?!


Hi,
did you ever wonder why they were in the waste in the first place. ?
If you,ve got lots of them, you could experiment by swapping parts over, from the others which may have different faults.
hope this helps Mike @ Compurepair.
