Could have a bad paper jam sensor located in the area of your paper tray. Try turning the machine on and off and unplug the machine from the wall outlet to tray and reset the machine. If that does not work then your probably need to call in a professional technician.

I have a Brother Printer HL-240D that gives me a constant paper jam inside indication even though the paper goes completely through the printer, and there is no actual paper jam. What switch causes the...


Have you tried shutting it down completely? Also, double check to see if the inside of the printer is completely clean. I had the paper jam indicator showing because there a small piece of paper stuck inside. Also, found a helpful manual for a similar printer, you can see it here - Brother HL-2240 manual

Paper feeds about half way and then stops. All of the indicator lights come on.


If you get a paper jam, the Paper Jam indicator light promptsyou to clear the paper path. If the paper has just started to feed from thepaper feeder when the jam occurs, pull the paper straight up out of the paper feeder. Open and close the printer cover toresume printing. If the paper jam occurs inside the printer, remove the paper from the output bin. Turn the printeroff, then on. If this doesn't clear the jam, open the printer cover.Remove the print cartridge and cover it.For additional assistance, please contactLexmark Technical Support

Canon mx310 indicates paper jam but no paper


The printer has several switches in it to detect paper jams. When paper feeds in it trips the first one indicating that paper is present. Another switch further along the feed path indicates that the paper is feeding okay.
Your problem can be a jammed switch (loose scrap of paper), a broken switch, a switch disconnected from the controller board or a possible bad controller board.
One thing you didn't mention was does it respond the same with paper loaded? It might be that the first switch is looking for some and not finding it, so it is programmed to assume a jam.

Printer indicates paper jam every few pages, but there is no paper anywhere in the paper path. If I open the top cover and close it, it will print a few more pages, then indicate another paper jam


Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

Kyocera 3900dn says paper jam in rear but no jam evident


Usually a printer doesn't lie when it indicates a paper jam, if you have checked as thoroughly as possible and no paper can be found. It is possible that the paper just isn't feeding and a printer will sometimes indicate a paper jam when paper doesn't feed. But if this isn't the case and a jam is indicated as soon as you turn the printer on, one of the plastic jam sensing actuators may be broken or hung up.

HP 4L printer indicates no paper when the tray has


When you removed the paper jam, was the paper torn? If so, did you ensure that you found all the pieces. (Put the piece of paper back together like a puzzle to verify). There could be a piece of paper stuck in the printer that is causing the paper sensor to fail.
The other possibility is that when you removed the paper jam, something became dislodged in the printer. Forcefully removing paper from the printer can cause this.
