Constant Paper "Jam 1 and No cartridge", plus prints same page over and over!

HI. I had a paper jam. I was careful to remove the paper via the back door (obviously not careful enough). Now I have a constant "Paper Jam 1 or No Cartridge" error msg. If I open and close the front door it starts printing again. I have to open and close the door 3 times to get piece of paper printed, then the printer automatically starts printing the same page again, rather than going to the next page in the document (I have a a PC, Windows XP, and Word). I tried re-installing the software (i think that's what I did). I am also on the look o ut for these flags I seen people writing about and I can see them. Are they those little black plastic things that pop up and down? If so, i've jiggled them a bit and they seem fine.
I love this printer! I really don't want it to die on me.

Any help is appreciated

    I have the same problem. When I called helpdesk they wanted me to take it to a Samsung service center!!! I guess the service will cost more than a new printer!!

    I have the same problem. has anyone solved this yet? I had a technician look it up and down and all he could come up with was maybe the cartridge is bad. But I don't want to buy a new cartridge just to find that out. I see this problem posted a few times on here but no real solutions... please help

I had this error non-stop until I changed the paper to a higher grade 80# instead of lower. Good luck! This worked immediately for me!

LEXMARK IMPACT S 305 A 5 PAPER JAMMING, HOW DO I REMOVE IT, THEIR IS NO WAY IN VIA THE BACK.


Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:

  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.
  2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.
  3. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris in the cartridge carrier's path or the paper path. Open the scanner unit or the printer cover.
  4. If you can see the paper jam, the cartridge area should give you enough space for your hand to reach on the jammed paper in the printer.
  5. Carefully remove the paper jam and make sure not to tear or leave torn pieces of paper in the printer. It can cause future paper jams.
  6. When the jam is cleared, close the printer cover.
  7. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).
  8. When the printer turns on, try to print again.

Follow these steps to remove jammed paper from the printer

.
1.Open the print cartridge door, and then remove the print cartridge.
NOTE:  Opening the print cartridge door and removing the print cartridge relieves tension on the product rollers, which prevents damage to the product and makes the removal of jammed pages easier.

CAUTION:  To prevent damage to the print cartridge, cover it with a sheet of paper to minimize exposure to direct light.

 

2.With both hands, grasp the paper where it is most visible, including the middle, and then carefully pull the paper straight out of the product.

Paper jam???


Follow these steps :
1.1
Remove all paper from the trays. This will prevent further jams during the clearing.
2.2
Remove the covering to the printer's outer case to expose the jam. Locate the jammed paper to ensure there is not another problem causing the stall.
3.3
Pull gently on the jammed paper, taking care not to tear it. In most cases, this will remove the jam.
4.4
Press the flashing "Printer Jam" button. This will allow the rotors to turn and facilitate the release of the jam.
5.5
Turn off the printer and firmly pull on the jammed paper. Be careful not to tear it.
6.6
Remove remaining paper shreds. if a tear occurs, remove any residual paper that may hamper printing.
7.7
Refill the paper tray and try printing again. If the jam persists, repeat the process and search for more paper.

Paper jam in hp1300 cannot print


Remove the cartridge and paper tray to see where the paper jam is. If it is a whole page jammed inside of printer, before removing shut off printer and carefully remove paper if you end up tearing a piece this will make it harder to remove in pieces. After you have removed jammed paper reinstall toner cartridge and paper tray turn printer on and see if this clears the jam error message.

Paper jam notification after printing one page, no 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.

When a paper jam occurs, the printer will stop printing and the Continue (1) and Paper Jam (2) lights on the operator panel will come on. See the illustration below.
pattlnk_1052005_1635-enus20238_oppaneljamlights_e230_en_us.gif When you experience a paper jam, it is recommended that you check and clear the entire paper path. To clear a paper jam, do the following:
  1. If you are feeding paper from a paper tray, first remove the tray. Look for and remove any jammed or damaged paper you find.

    pattlnk_1052005_1636-enus20238_removepaperjam_e230_en_us.gif
  2. Open the front cover and remove the print cartridge assembly.

    IMPORTANT!
    Do not leave the print cartridge assembly exposed to direct light, especially sunlight, for an extended period of time. Extended exposure to light will damage the green photoconductor roller and cause print quality problems.

    pattlnk_1052005_1639-enus20238_removecartridge_e230_en_us.gif
  3. Remove any paper you find jammed in the area behind the print cartridge assembly.

    pattlnk_1052005_1645-enus20238_removepaperjam2_e230_en_us.gif
  4. Also lift the flap at the front of the printer and remove any paper you find jammed beneath the flap.

    pattlnk_1052005_1646-enus20238_removepaperjam3_e230_en_us.gif
  5. Open the rear exit door/cover of the printer and remove any jammed paper you find there.

    pattlnk_1052005_1647-enus20238_removepaperjamrear_e230_en_us.gif
  6. Once you have confirmed that the entire paper path is clear, reinstall the print cartridge assembly. Close all the printer covers/doors. Reinstall any paper trays you removed.
  7. Press the Continue button to resume printing. NOTE: The printer should reprint the page(s) that caused the paper jam.
  8. If the paper continues to jam, press the Continue button twice quickly while the Continue and Paper Jam lights are on. This will cause the operator panel to display the secondary error paper jam light sequence. The secondary error code will tell you where the printer thinks the problem has arisen. For more information, see the 'Secondary Error Codes' section on page 69 of the User's Guide.
