Hello there
Would you like to try this.
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.

My HP4100 keeps jamming under the toner cartridge. I have a repairman look at it 2 times and he cannot figure it out. Does anyone know what would be causing the jam. It seems to happen mostly on short...


1) Check all the paper jam locations (see "Clearing paper jams" in your printer manual). A piece of paper might be stuck somewhere in the printer. Even a small torn piece of paper in the printer path can cause repeated jams.
2) If you are using a duplexer, check all the areas (including under the duplexer).
3) Check that the paper is correctly loaded in the tray - that all paper tray adjustments have been made, and that the trays are not overfilled. Make sure the paper is under the front and back tabs. (See the section on "loading paper" from your printer manual.)
4) Check that all trays and paper handling accessories are completely
inserted into the printer. (If a tray is opened during a print job, this might cause a paper jam.)
5) Check that all covers and doors are closed. (If a cover or door is opened during a print job, this might cause a paper jam.)
6) Try printing to a different output bin or tray
7) The sheets might be sticking together. Try bending the stack to separate each sheet.
8) If you are printing from tray 1, try reducing the size of the stack.
If printing from the envelope feeder, make sure it is loaded correctly,
9) If you are printing small sizes, feed paper short edge first (see
the "Guidelines for printing custom-size paper" in your printer manual).
10) Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also try rotating the paper 180 degrees.
11) Check the characteristics of the media you are using. Use only paper that meets HP specifications (see the "Paper Specifications" in your user manual).
12) Try using different paper to see if the problem goes away. Do not use curled, deformed, damaged, or irregular paper.
13) Check that the environmental conditions for the printer are met (see the "Environmental Specifications" in your printer's user guide).
14) Avoid using paper that has already been used in a printer or copier.
15) Check that the power supplied to the printer is steady and meets printer specifications (refer to the "Electrical Specifications" in your printer's users guide).
16) Clean the printer and rollers (refer to the "Cleaning the Printer" section of your printer's user's guide).
17) Perform preventative printer maintenance if maintenance is due (refer to the "Performing Preventative Maintenance" section of your printer's user's guide).

Alarm light


Paper Jam:
Clear the paper jam.
If the printer does not automatically resume printing, press the control panel button.
No Paper/ Misfeed:
  • The paper cassette may be out of paper or not properly installed.
    If it is empty, load a new stack of paper into the paper cassette.
    If there is paper in the paper cassette, make sure it is straight.
    If the paper is curled, straighten it before printing. Sometimes it is helpful to remove the paper, turn the stack over and put it back in the paper cassette.
  • Reduce the amount of paper in the paper cassette, and then try again.
  • Make sure you use paper that meets Brother's recommended paper specifications.
  • Re-install the paper properly, and then press the control panel button. The printer will start printing again.

On printer error cod 6A00 displayed, on computer screen icon says service error 5C10. Have cleaned ink wells and wiped off excess ink. After cleaning far right side a long skinny black piece came out,...


Hi


Error 5C10 means a paper jam or the printer has encountered an internal error. And error 6A00 is caused due a paper jam in the sheet feed unit or near the print head. You can also reset the printer to resolve this issue. On the printer press and hold the ON/OFF button or unplug the power cord. Wait for 10 seconds, press power button ON/OFF button again. If this doesn't resolve the error code then unplug the printer for 10 minutes. Also, inspect the back panel of the printer for any paper jams. To clear the paper jams---

Turn off the printer and disconnect the power cord and USB cable. Remove the jammed paper slowly using the following procedure. Open the rear cover to check if the paper is jammed. Pull out the cassette and check if the paper is jammed inside the cassette area. Stand the printer with the rear side down, holding the document cover. Press the tabs together and pull the green cover toward you. Check if the paper is jammed. (If you were not doing Duplex printing, you do not have to follow this procedure.) Close the green cover and place the printer back to a normal position. Reconnect the power cord and power on the printer. Confirm the Alarm light is off. Load paper back into the ASF or cassette. Press to clear the message and continue printing. If you are printing from application software, follow the instructions displayed on your computer. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

My Canon Pixma MP600R insists that paper is jamed in machine, despite the fact that jam has been cleared and paper is being ejected when machine is switched on


The simplest thing would be to try unplugging the printer from the power source. Let it rest for 5 - 10 minutes then plug back in to the power supply and see if that resolves the problem.

If not you are going to need to do a thorugh inspection to verify that all paper remnants have been removed.

The following is for the MP600:

Issue: ERROR LCD: The paper is jammed. Clear the paper and press [OK].
Solution: Removing paper jams MP600


Removing Obstructions or Jammed Paper If [Paper output slot - The paper is jammed. Clear the paper and press OK] appears on the LCD, follow this procedure to clear the paper jam Clearing paper jams from the auto sheet feeder (ASF) or paper output slot
Clearing paper jams inside the printer
Clearing credit card-sized or 4" x 6" paper jammed inside the printer

ASF / Paper Output Slot
  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Remove paper from the ASF.

  3. Gently pull the jammed paper out.
    1. If paper is visible from the ASF, use both hands to pull the paper out slowly.
    2. If paper is visible from the paper output slot, use both hands to pull the paper out slowly.

      The above illustration shows a PIXMA MP500.

  4. If the paper tears and a piece of that remains inside the printer, open the scanning unit (printer cover) and remove the paper from inside the printer.

    Note:
    Be careful not to touch the components inside the printer.


  5. Turn on the printer and confirm that the Alarm light is off.
    (If the jammed paper remains in the printer, the paper may be automatically ejected.)

  6. Load paper back into the ASF.

  7. Press to clear the message and continue printing. If you are printing from an application software, follow the instructions displayed on your computer.

Paper Jamming when trying to copy or print


please check after you load paper on the paper tray and push it into the machine, should hear a click sound, if you don't hear that sound, that means you need to buy a new printer and that's no way to fix.
If you are able to hear a click, then please try to clean up your printer and check all paper loading rolls. if so, please replace it.

Does it jam at the fuser when doing a single print?

These machines have a Maintenance kit required every 200 000 prints, these MK's include all feed rollers, a transfer roller and the entire fuser assy. To replace the kit fixes all issues I've seen in these printers besides when the cartridge affects print quality.

If it is jamming at the fuser on a single print done via the printer operations panel, and your paper is fresh, it could only be the feed roller having trouble gripping the paper or the fuser not turning/stuffed.

Feed Kit, I have my doubts as to this being your problem

Maintenance Kit Fixes 98% of the time

Was is noisy before it died?
I have seen a few with stuffed fuser drive gears but not many and customers could hear it wearing.


How many prints since last MK? via keypad print a configuration page, count is there ie pages since last maintenance xxxxxx
