Hello. A tiny speck of paper can cause this message to appear. Get a flash light and then open up both the front and the rear doors and look very carefully for a little piece of paper. Joe

The paper keeps jamming in our Samsung laser printer 660 nd. We bought heavier paper for a laser printer but it still jams.


The ideal paper is around 80 GSM (gm2) if you are having problems with a BRAND NEW REAM of standard copy paper then your printer will need service.



paper that is thicker/heavier than this can actually cause more jams and problems and show worn out rollers earlier



These printers only tend to jam at the entry (pickup) near the base of the printer or in the fuser unit (hot area near the top)



if you are getting jams in multi page documents, have a look at which area the most crumpled piece of paper is in before you try and remove it.



the pick up rollers and separation pads are relatively cheap but the fuser units can be a bit pricey.

Have you tried shutting it down completely? Also, double check to see if the inside of the printer is completely clean. I had the paper jam indicator showing because there a small piece of paper stuck inside. Also, found a helpful manual for a similar printer, you can see it here - Brother HL-2240 manual

I have an Officejet J3608 model printer. its showing paper jam. But wen i checked i couldn find any paper jam in the printer. wat is the actual problem with my printer?


Perhaps the paper INDETECT SWITCH is faulty and so there is a false input to the CPU. You need to check this sensor/switch on the paper transport section where it is mounted.
Also check for loose connections on the main board, check for fault in the main board if the sensor seems to test correct.

My printer is not print it show's paper jam but the paper is not jam


Hello thanks for using Fixya

Actually you are facing E3 error, E3 error is mostly because of paper jam. their may be small bit paper jam in side
There are some "micro-sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper, or a lump of dust, inside those sensors, thus "tripping" the sensor and saying you paper jam.

To solve it
Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feeder

If you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects then
Turn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air.
If still problem exist then best & final option is to just contact to any HP service provider.

I hope this solution will helpful 4 u

Open door cariadge jam


this error generally comes in when there is actually a paper jam or it gives a false paper jam.. so first of all make sure that these should not be any paper stuck inside the printer.. clean all the paper rollers with a little moist lint free cloth.. then plug the printer directly to the wall jack for the power supply if not connected..
if it doesnt resolve the issue.. we may have to perform a reset as well ..

Paper jam message, but actually no paper jam


  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.

Paper jam message, but actually no paper jam


1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.

4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.
