Dell 924 Inkjet Printer False Paper Jam

I have a paper jam light on when there is no paper jam. I tried unplugging & replugging hitting #9, air cleaning the sensor area, & turning it upside down & gently shaking to disloge any loose paper. None of this works. Please help - I'm going crazy here!!

    Exact same problem here! Turn the printer on and printer almost immediately writes "paper stop" in its display. But there's no paper to be found anywhere.

Got rid of my problem!

In an act of despair I started to poke around the inside of the printer with a wooden match. Especially I found a small black lever mentioned on a Dell web site (general paper jam help page) that could be pressed a little. It is placed just a little bit right of center behind the carriage and just above the roll that feeds the paper beneath the printer heads. I'm not sure if this was what finally did it, but now the paper jam problem has gone away.

Another thing I noticed is that my carriage is now moving to center when I open the top. When the paper jam error was present it always moved to the far left (so I could remove any jammed paper, I suspect).

Non-existent paper jam


There is almost certainly an optical sensor somewhere that either has a tiny bit of paper or dust in it. Try blowing dust out of the insides of the printer with a shop vac set to blow air out. Also try disconnecting/reconnecting the optical sensors throughout the paper path of the printer. Only do these things with the printer disconnected from everything.

I had a paper jam. When I pulled the paper out


Hi,
Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry.
Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print.
Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job.
Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..

Hope that helps!

I'm trying to replace black color cartridge, but get an error message: carrier jam How do I unjam it? Already did the unplug- check for paper jam and replug...no luck!


Remove all paper...(inspect closely for paper jammed way inside!)

also remove both ink cartriges, reinsert them one at a time carefully and properly....also double check the number code on the ink

the jam error could be either paper or cartriges confusing the printer. let me know if it works....k

Dell All-in-One 924 Ink Jet "phantom" paper jam


I had the same problem and it was really getting annoying. I opened it up and took out the ink cartridges and put them back in then I turned the thing off for about 10 minutes. Mainly so I wouldn't smash it out of anger. When I turned it back on I printed a test page and all was well. I don't know if this will work for you, it seems pretty random but you just never know. Good luck!

Paper jam


I used the cardboard backing from an 8x11 tablet; I pushed it into the paperholder; it pushed out a small bit of paper which could not be seen; behold, the paper jam was no longer. I paid a computer repairman $15 to do the same thing with a plastic sheet.
