Turn the printer off, Open the front cover where the drum and toner are installed. Remove the drum and toner (cartridge). look inside the machine for a paper jam, also open the back cover and check there.

SOURCE: Paper jam is showing on printer info., but ther's no paper jam.

Ok this issue ussually occurs when the roller feed doesn't load the paper due to the following reasons:
1. If your printer is operating for  more than two years or so... gear tear will most likely to occur. If you can open the printer and check everytime the printer initiates after power on ad if the roller feed doesn't rotate but the leftmost rotary gear with the encoder wheel rotates, the gear is most likely to be loose even there is no paper jam nor dust contamination on the rubber and paper feed mechanism. You need to replace the said gear with the encoder strip . A simple solution would be aplying epoxy resin so it will be fixed on the rotary shaft. It may last for quite sometime but better yet replace the gear.
2. The feeder rollers might be dirty and needs to be cleaned and greased the gears.
3. Probable defective print cartridge. Try replacing it with a new one. 

But based on the items above, if your printer is operating more than a year or two, and frequent paper jam is being experienced, gear tear near the motor is the culprit.

SOURCE: printer keeps reading paper jam

We had exactly the same problem (and this printer had never been used before) - we fed a piece of thick-quality paper, applied a little pressure from the top edge as it descended, and 'voila' the printer has finally fed one sheet right through.

What it is NOT yet doing is aligning correctly with the top margin of the document - it is more or less cropping off the top portion, but I'm trying to finish taxes and this will darn well do for now.

These printers are cheap plastic junk, manufactured to make the trip to landfill as soon as possible. Damn Canon and all the other corporations making these trashy pieces of electronics. (I still have a LaserJet 5MP, and I'm sure HP hates me for it - circa 1995 manufacture). If I can figure out how to get printer drivers for OS 10.5 (mac) it will leave to see more service still. Grrrr.

4TH LIGHT FROM THE TOP KEEPS COMING ON LEXMARK E232


What this light sequence means that the printer has a paper jam.

When a paper jam occurs, the printer stops and the operator panel's Paper Jam light and Continue button lights come on. Press and release Continue twice quickly to display the specific secondary error paper jam light sequence.


How to clear Paper Jam

Press Continue button twice quickly to see the secondary error code.


To get the secondary error codes

When the Error light (!) and Continue button lights are both on, a secondary error has occurred.

When the Paper Jam light (4th light) and Continue button lights are both on, a paper jam secondary error has occurred.

Press and release Continue button twice quickly to display the secondary error code light sequence.


Press Continue button to resume printing once all the jammed pages are cleared from the paper path.

We recommend that you clear the entire paper path when a paper jam occurs.


To clear a paper jam:


1 If you are feeding paper from a tray, remove the tray, and then remove any jams.

2 Open the front cover and remove the print cartridge assembly.

NOTE: Do not leave the print cartridge assembly exposed to direct light for an Extended period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.

3 Remove any jams in the area behind the print cartridge assembly.

4 Lift the flap at the front of the printer and remove any jams beneath the flap.

5 Open the rear exit and remove any jams.

6 After you have cleared the jams, reinstall the print cartridge assembly, make sure all printer covers and trays are closed, and then press Continue button to resume printing.

NOTE: The printer reprints the pages that caused the paper jam.

Printer blinking red and showing letter E


Error description:

The Attention (red) light is blinking. There are six possible causes that will display the Attention light pattern:

-Paper out
-Door open
-Print cartridge missing
-Paper jam
-Paper sensor jammed
-Duplexer error

Solution :
After the cause of the problem has been addressed, pressing GO will cause the printer to attempt to recover from the cause of the error. If the printer is unsuccessful, it will continue to display the Attention message until the cause is remedied.

Pressing JOB CANCEL will cancel the print job and the printer will return to the Ready state (Ready light on) unless there is a paper jam still in the printer or the print cartridge is not in the printer.

Red "Paper" light stays on; printer will not print.


Paper light flashing could mean several things on this machine.

There could be a paper jam in the machine. Open the front cover remove the drum and toner and look in the machine. You can also check in between the drum and toner by removing the toner from the drum. Open the back cover and look for a Jam as well.

Try putting a piece of paper in the manual feed tray which is right above the paper tray, sometimes on certain documents the margins are too big and asks to go into the manual feed slot.

Paper light keeps blinking and won't print I have paper and it's set as default printer


It keeps blinking because there is a paper jam. Open the front cover and take out the toner/drum and see any jammed paper. Also, you can open the back cover, pull the paper guide down to see the rollers.

If the above does not work, take off the front cover. Pull the tabs on the side. Pull out the toner/cartridge. Look for a blue tab on the top, and you need to slide that from right to left. Put everything back and see if this solves the problem.

Middle light blinking message says paper


Look for any small rips of paper caught in a sensor back there. There are little "fingers" that the paper runs over and its all timed. if one of those sensors are jammed with something or sticky, error messages.

Problem starts with "paper jam" messager. Can not shut down as light keeps blinking and "shutting down" message is on screen.


hi!!!! in your case,try to unplug the power of your printer and check the material that stock inside the printer that can cause the printer paper jam and after you check to plug it back.It is normal when the printer is blinking when the printer is paper jam because that is the error when your printer is paper jam.

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.
