Its a misfeed in the fusing section. The paper didn't get to the exit sensor after the registration roller by the drum was activated. Check the fuser and drum areas. It can be caused by a dirty exit sensor, registration rollers not having pressure, a bad fuser roller or drive gear, or the exit rollers not making good contact.

It Can Also Be That the solinoids have sticky pads
Causing the same error as a 40 Jam from cassette and 20 Jam from MP tray

To fix these I recomend you replace pads on the Pickup, registration and MP tray solinoids
Remove the covers on the right side
remove the control board connectors on the left looking in that side held on with three screws
you should see 2 of the solinoids then
and there is another solinoid under a tan cover right below those solinoids

remove the old padding, and put in new padding
that will fix those sticking solinoids

the pads act as a damper for sound as well as helping to push the claw back out because the springs may not have enough pull to return them home

Says paper jam but isn t one

It could be as simple as the rollers being dirty and its detecting a timing jam. or it could be that the exit sensor detection arm is stuck or sticking . if it was stuck you couldnt put another document in with out opening and closing the lid it would say jam. really sounds like its really dirty. now if it will run one with no problem its the seperation pad or roller depending on model. it tries to pull other sheet and it fails and shows jam but no paper in the unit . clean your rollers with wd-40 let sit few minutes 2 or 3 and retry. ya i said wd-40 you will be amazed.

Paper jam out cassette

Odds are you are going to have to replace the paper pick up & paper feed and sep. rollers. You can also, try to clean the rollers with a rag with a very little bit of WD-40 and clean the three roller and dry off the WD-40 and see if that solves your problem. Good Luck

I have Kyocera Copier that is trying to print a fax and it keeps coming up JAM 40. How do I fix this?

JAM 40 is a fuser jam. Remove the process unit and make sure there is no paper there. Open the back cover and make sure there is no paper there. Turn the machine off then back on. If you are still geting Jam 40 then you have a bad sensor or similar issue.

Printer error shows paper jam at paper tray and printer stops after printing 3 or 4 pages. I open and close the top access and printing resumes for 3 or 4 more pages...stops and shows paper jam at feed...

Try two things:

Fan the paper before placing in the tray.

Raise the humidity in the room to at least 40% to avoid electrostatic sticking of the paper. Store paper in 40% humidity area.

Paper jam due to water condensation in fuser unit Optra C710

The problem is that you have paper that contains too much moisture. (I bet it's been in the printer for a long time and has absorbed moisture form the atmosphere.. has it been rainy lately? When the moist paper gets heated in the fuser, the excess moisture turns to steam which then condenses back to water
on paper guides etc. Your diagnosis that the water is causing the jam is correct.. Try using some dry paper and it should be fine.

Dell 1700 printer paper jams

if the paper is jamming at the back of the unit, and looks like an accordian after removal, it's more than likely only the paper sensor on the fuser. i dont recall the part number, but it can be had from online suppliers for under $40.
