Here are some useful steps you can try:

try to power cycle the printer for about 2 mins. then try a test print with just single paper

Make sure that the paper is aligned properly.

You can also check if there's any foreign object stuck inside the printer

If you are able to reach the paper roller on the printer, try cleaning it.

Lastly turn off you printer, try to lift your printer up, put it in an upside down position
then shake it from left to right for about a min. then turn the printer on again
try a test print.

If none of this steps resolved the problem
then the issue is with the printer itself.

Hope this helps.

I have a paper jam and it says to open the front cover, put the front cover just shows the ink cartridges and there is no visible paper jam. how do i find the jam and remove it? It's a canon image...


Hi,
The paper jam could be in three places.
First:

Open the cover of fixing section, its above bypass, and check for jamed paper

Second:

Open the transfer cover, these cover has handle and it goes by pulling toward you, and check for jamed paper.

Third:

In hight of first paper cassette, on left sideway of copier, beaneath the bypass are small door, open it and check for paper jams. Be sure that you closed them properly because if they arent closed the check printer cover message will arrise.

Hope that helped

Copier jamming/copy printing sideways


If it jams every copy then it sounds like the paper tray size is not programmed properly. This is also why the print is the wrong direction on the page. So the copier thinks it has 8.5X11 loaded like this > -- and instead it is loaded like this > |
I hope that makes sense. So this not only causes the print to be the wrong direction but since the paper dimension are different that what the machine expects then it throws the sensor timing off and results in a paper jam. So just open your paper trays and check the paper size dials in the trays to make sure they match the paper size AND direction of the paper loaded into that tray.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

My cannon printer keeps saying alarm 32 what does this mean


You may have to open and shut a door to make it reset. There is a sensor detecting something or claiming too. The paper tends to load on the right side and not the left. The paper goes in sideways and therefore jams. This seems to be a common complaint with this printer.

Paper jams when printing and paper is being pulled in sideways


Hi, Follow these steps:- 1.Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred. 2.Turn off the printer. 3.Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper. 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 in a bag or away from 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. 8.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. Thanks! mannu_rakesh

How do I fix a paper jam? I have a piece of paper that went in slightly sideways, and now its jammed. It's almost halfway in, so I'm afraid to pull on it in case it rips and pieces are left. Is there way...


You won't be able to make the printer work backward and push the paper out. Start by powering OFF the printer (unplug it if necessary). Then look to open up the front/top/back as appropriate to clear the paper jam. Frequently, if you pull straight and carefully (slowly), the paper will come out in one piece and solve your problem. If any pieces are left inside, remove them all before attempting to power ON the printer. If in doubt as to clearing, read the user manual - troubleshooting section on clearing paper jams. Good Luck!

Paper jammed (Dell lase Printer 1720dn


Open the back cover and look for paper wrapped around a roller back there. That is the most common cause of the issues with this machine. The other thing you can try is to push down on the little flaps where the paper comes out of the printer. These get stuck and need cleaning/replacement all the time in the later life of these models (1720's).

Notecard sized paper jam - can not find in usual spots


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.
