Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.
First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.
If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.




Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Keeps saying paper jam,but no paper jam is inside


The jam indication is set because the sensor(s) detect one. This could be due to a buildup of paper dust, a small bit of a sheet that tore off and got lodged deep inside when removing a previous jam, or damage to the sensors if the jam was removed forcibly by pulling the sheets out from the wrong direction.

My HP Laserjet 4L has started jamming paper when I try to print more than one page.


Here is some tips to avoid paper jam..

  • If your printer has a paper tray do not fill the tray to capacity. If you're encountering frequent paper jams, reduce the amount of paper you place in the tray each time it is filled.
  • Make sure you or the tray feeding the paper into the printer is aligned properly and the slider used to hold the paper in place in the tray is snug with the paper. Many printers have sliders that allow different types and sizes of paper to be fed into the printer. If the slider is not properly positioned it can cause paper jams.
  • Use standard office paper; folded paper, paper with labels, and specialty paper such as hard bound paper can often cause paper jams. If you're uncertain with what paper you should use with your printer your printer documentation will list the paper compatible with your printer.
  • Do not mix the paper you're feeding into the printer at one time. If you need to change the paper or size of paper being used removed any other paper currently in the printer before inserting the new paper.
  • If your printer uses a slot or tray for the paper make sure to not push the paper too far into the slot or tray.
  • Examine the printer for any previous stuck paper in the printer. Previous paper jams, torn paper, printing labels or other foreign objects in the printer can cause reoccurring printer jams.

Paper keeps jamming in fuser, inner door and tray, can firmware upgrade fix this, its a c534dn


A paper jam as you describe could be caused by the following:

The fuser is defective and causing the jam.
The tray has a problem and it is not picking up the paper properly which causes a timing problem that results in a jam.
A bad sensor is stopping the printer from being able to tell if the right size paper is being fed through the printer.

Try printing from the manual tray to eliminate a problem with the standard paper tray. If it still jams it is very possible that your fuser has an issue and will require replacement. Are there any errors in the error log?

Tray is not feeding paper properly. Its making a weird clicking noise when paper is being fed. Paper gets jammed on most attempts.


Remove the paper tray and try to see some paper jammed somewhere around it. When pulling off paper jam. Just pull gently and slowly so that you can remove all and nothing left behind and doesn't damage the part when removing unwanted paper jam. Maybe it is the cartridge just repalce new cartridge if not the fuser drum maybe damage.

How do i fix a paper jam on my printer?


One of the more common problems with printers as it relates to paper jams, is that the paper stacked in the tray hasn't been fanned. What I mean is, it's like holding a paper-back book in your hand and skimming quickly through the pages with your thumb as your other hand holds it at the spine. Try this as a remedy if your printer jams often.

Hope this helps. :)

Paper jam/no paper fed


make sure the photo paper is in glossy side face down,
set the paper type to photo.

If it keeps jamming it's because the paper feed is probably dirty and not taking the paper properly

Major paper jam - all the paper has fed into the printer


Take the printer to a qualified technician, for proper repair, if you don't know "HOW" to properly disassemble/reassemble your printer.

My Brother MFC-685CW has paper, no jam, but the rollers won't pick up the paper when i want it to photocopy. Why won't it pick up the paper - it keeps saying "no paper fed"


Toner complaint may also cause paper jams. It can be solved only by replacing it. When you switch on the loop back plug in, two flash lights appear; then it indicates paper jam. The oil spillage in toner can cause this problem. If the toner cartridge is not functioning properly, the same problem would be the result. The diodes or transistors in the fuser unit of the Multi Function Printer may get damaged and this can lead to fuser complaints. To solve this problem, you should replace it.
