Hi,
202 is indicating a jam at the fuser exit sensors there are 2 located on the outboard side of the fuser.
First check to see if anything is blocking one of these sensors.
To gain better access remove the rear feed asym (remove the 2 screws located in the lower cut-out section and release the 2 tabs located at on each side of the feed asym.
Now remove any foreign objects.
If none are found use a paper clip unwound to gently activate each flag toward the rear of machine.
If all is working well print several test pages and observe the paper as it reaches this point. If it stops before striking the flag check to see if your paper size matches the tray size.
Look in the paper menu after you turn machine off and is in ready state.
If all seem right,check to make sure the sensors are seated properly in there housings (each will have 4 tabs locking them into place).
It sounds like one of the flags may be sticking when printing. The sensor flag on the right is known to become dislodged when paper is pulled past it manually.
It also never hurts to try printing from another paper source such as the front drop down tray. Also good idea to clean any dirty pick up roller with a damp lint free cloth.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Good Luck and have a nice day.

Here are aa couple of things for you to check that can cause this if your sure its not the wrong paper size or the pick wheels.fyi the easiest way to check paper size is to print the network stat sheet it is inclosed by a line all the way around the outside edge. if prints smaller than the page or if the bottom line of this box is missing then there is a paper size issue. inside the printer on the bottom left side there are 4 white paper feed wheel roght near the furthest one back there is a timming sensor this sensor should be positioned upright to align with the back third of the wheel. make sure it is mounted solid.take a index card and using the flat edge at a90% rake it across the ribs that the paper rides on. if the card catches any where the notch will need to be smoothed out. anything that will catch the card will slow down the paper creating a paper jam issue.toner build up on the rear upper deflector back by where the paper enters the fuser is a problem spot as well.if you remove the fuser and look to your right there are 2 free floating gears that igage the fuser hot roll gear on the frame that mounts these gears there is a little black plastic piece that goes from the gears to the upper front hinge assmbly.this clutch release arm ingages these gears to the fuser when you close the upper front cover if it is broken or missing a skipping teeth issue can occur creating a timming issue and the jams the scanner can also cause this if its dirty inside.pull the top cover off the printer and remove the 7 screws from the scanner top remove it inside the scanner you will see in the center rear of the assembly a mirror motor assembly this is a air gap motor. the mirror head can be lifted off fairly easy by pulling straight up on it. the armature post on the bottom of the mirror head has a coating on it kind of like teflon and so does the recieving side of the armature clean these surfaces with contact cleaner and a q-tip. the flat edges of the mirror head also need to be cleaned with the q-tip. in front of this motor you will see a prizm clean both front and back surfaces with a q-tip i usually use alchohol on these. now just in front of this prizm to the far right you will see a little mirror 1/2 inch x 1/2 inch this is part of the timming for this scanner and needs to be cleaned. on the left side of the scnner where the 4 wire connector plug into the scanner assembly and directly across from the mirror you will see a prizm that is about double the size of the timming mirror both sides of thie need to be cleaned. 2 more thing to clean just in front of these youwill see a mirror mounted at approx. 35 degrees this will need to be claened and down in front of the mirror there is a scanner window you can see and clean the inside of this glass the outside will also need to be cleaned. these parts being dirty can cause a lot of problems from the laser loosing lock.to the air gap motor running a bit slower to 93x errors.

Hello,

A printer will jam for any number of reasons: It’s dirty, the wrong paper type is being used, or the rollers on the printer that feed the paper through its pathway are worn down. While cleaning the printer periodically and using the correct paper type are easy fixes. Regardless of the cause, when removing a paper jam, always pull the paper in the direction of the paper path, because pulling it backwards can severely damage the printer.

If the printer is been service of recent and the correct paper i been used, then, I advice you replace the roller on your printer because it is possible that it is worn out, this might help fix your paper jam issue.

look at the possible problems that could cause the printer paper jam and use it to fix your printer issue.

Take care.

    Hello,

    Inspect the paper trays to make sure they are not overloaded. To
    determine if this is the problem, do a test print with only one piece of
    paper loaded in the paper tray. (If this turns out to be the problem,
    keep the paper tray half-full in the future.)

    If someone has recently printed labels on this printer, check to see if a
    label has come unglued from a sheet and become stuck inside the
    printer.

    inspect the printer's paper rollers. They should be smooth but not
    shiny. Rollers that are cracked or glazed are a frequent cause of paper
    jams and should be replaced by a technician.

    Try changing the toner and see if you will still have the paper jam issue,

    Take care.

What is this ??


Typically there is a piece of paper caught in the fuser exit. If no paper evident(ie paper feeds cleanly, stops 1 inch past fuser) verify there are 2 sensor exit flags present and free to move. Occasionally 1 of the flags gets broken off the sensor causing this jam.

202 paperjam open rear door. My printer did have a paper jam and we removed all the paper we could find, but that message won't go away and it hasn't worked since! HELP!


Hello and Welcome to FixYa

Start by following the steps below to get the paper out from the machine.
  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.



Advanced

If that doesn't help then you would have to start taking apart the machine to find the jammed paper and remove it, its not something a just anyone should do unless you have experience.

you may have to take the machine to a repairer to get the jammed paper bits out of the machine, if you don't see paper jammed in the machine it does not mean that there wouldn't be a paper jam somewhere in the unit along the paper path. Some of the switches or sensors might have gotten stuck.

Info printer 1120 "202 paper jam error"


The 202 error can be indicated if the fuser exit sensor (on the far right when looking into the rear of the machine) actuator does not return to "at rest" position quickly enough. There is a small spiral tension spring that returns the actuator to the "at rest" position. If the hook on this spring has fallen off or was accidentally dislodged during an actual paper jam removal, the actuator will return to the "at rest" position, but sluggishly. It would be just slow enough for the printer timing to think there is paper stuck the at fuser exit, even though there isn't.
You also might want to try using some "canned air" and blowing out this sensor. There could be enough Toner/Paper dust to make it marginal.

202 pam jam


usually it means that a sensor in your fuser is bad. If you have a P.M. Kit replaced the fuser and clean the printer.

but before you do, make sure that you have cleared all jams, including in the fuser.

Its probably time for a Preventive Maintanence

Paper jam 202 with no paper in printer


This jam is refering to back door, jam in fuser (hot bit) Double check no paper is wraped around fuser rollers.

These machines have a fuser at rear if you look at he fuser from the back, on it you will see, two thick fuser rollers (ones rubber), paper runs threw these then it hits a little black switch (your machine thinks this switch is activated) and then a series(3,4) of small rubber exit rollers, this switch (between middle and left) can get damaged it also likely that a piece of paper is concertinaed in fuser.

Also remove print cartridge and look behind it, if this machine has duplex unit installed you will need to lift it off that first to axcess all areas.

Check all doors are shut.
