Hello there Yjis trick for the jams gave it a go.
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.

I had this problem and couldn't figure out until I opened the front, pulled out the toner cartridge and found a paper jam.  Removed it and now I have the green light.

The orange light keeps flashing and it says there is a paper jam but I cleared the paper jam but the orange flashing light will not go off.


1. there is a sensor at the end of the printer which shows paper jam recovery. the sensor of your printer may be jammed. clear the jam and it will work. 2. if not, there may be a small piece of paper near the sensor of your printer. clear it.

Paper jam


Follow your manufacturer isntructions to removing jams and to the locations of possible jams. Other than that, just look for any evidence of jams. Open doors, remove trays, remove cartridges all in an effort to see if there are any pieces of paper inside. Using a small flashlight will help detect small traceds of paper

Our printer says paper jam open and close door. We have checked and no paper jam is evident as well we have readjusted the paper and opened and closed the front compartment and the top scanner/printer...


This can happen when there has been an actual paper jam, and in the process of clearing the jam and removing the paper one of the optical sensors inside the paper path has been damaged, thereby giving the alarm when there is no paper in the path.

Repairing this situation requires a skilled technician and dismantling the machine. This very problem happened with my own Canon Pixma MX860, a machine I dearly loved and had only owned for six months...but the cost to repair it was as much as I paid for the printer.

I know that isn't what you wanted or hoped to hear, but I also hope it was helpful.

Kyocera 3900dn says paper jam in rear but no jam evident


Usually a printer doesn't lie when it indicates a paper jam, if you have checked as thoroughly as possible and no paper can be found. It is possible that the paper just isn't feeding and a printer will sometimes indicate a paper jam when paper doesn't feed. But if this isn't the case and a jam is indicated as soon as you turn the printer on, one of the plastic jam sensing actuators may be broken or hung up.
