    my printer constantly says it is jammed but there is no paper in it and i can't remove the error alarm, and has rendered the entire unit useless. Its the most exspensive paper weight i've ever owned.

    I have the same exact problem. It's only double sided printing on the flip side when the printer jams the paper. The paper looks as if its not grabbed by the rollers ( inadequate friction?) on one side and instead the paper is reeled back in crooked

    I can't get my printer to print duplex either. I can print fine one side. It keeps jamming on duplex. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    I got a message about a paper jam and cannot find the paper at all. Opened everything I can find to open and not a piece of paper to be found. Have had trouble with duplex before but this is the first jam and I'm stumped.

    Just bought a Canon MP530. Everytime I automatic duplex print (tried about 4 times), the paper jams when being retracted after printing on the first side. It has some message about turning the printer on its side to get to the bottom, but my jam doesn't go all the way to the bottom. I just press the "ok" button, and the paper comes back out the front, but crinkled from the jam. (By the way, read the manual, and says to always place printer with the left side down in this scenario, not the right. The pop-up message does not say this.) My paper is fairly thin -- I suspect thicker paper may catch better during the retract. But I don't want to be required to purchase heavier paper. My prior printer was a Canon Pixma also, but without copy / fax features, and duplex worked great on it. I haven't called Canon yet. It would be a pain to have to take it or send it somewhere for repairs, but may come down to that.

    Paper is jammed, can see it from the rear cover, but cannot reach it. 

  • robinwenz May 11, 2010

    Could you people be more specific how u are getting access to the paper rollers? show pictures or explain where these entries are etc. I realizae i can lift the front cover, but everything is so tightly screwed in and too tight to access u cant easily clean jams. I lifted down the back cover and u cant get to the paper platen or rollers there either. How are u getting out those tiny pieces under the rollers and stuck between the platen?

I posted previously. After buying new paper, the duplex printing is working. It is probably heavier than my previous paper, but not particularly thick (don't know the exact grade.) So if you have this problem, try buying some new paper a little thicker than you are using now.

I was the guest above. Hope I can still be a guest! I have run a few sheets now without any problems. I think I have found what causes the paper jam in duplex printing. What I did was to simply inspect the roller from the front and clean any paper bits, debris or dust specially from aroound the very center where a gray clamp looking thing is loacted. Give it a shot. It's not easy to look behind the shaft without dissambling the printer which is way beyond a home fix. But you can try and remove whatever paper bits you see there on the shaft and/or around the pinch rollers. For good measures I use a pressurized air canister used for dusting hard to reach PC keyboards, etc. Use a torch light or a bright light to help you see better. The sensors could possibly see accumulated dust or paper bits as a jam also. Good luck.

My Oki Printer jams every time with duplex unit installed, any idea?


Is there any message on the operator panel when the jam occurs? Where in the paper path does the jam occur? There are diagnostic tests in the printer but those are best left to an authorized service center.

Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer Canon mp530 error 6a00


The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam. Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code.
Clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like

Hello, I just bought a brother hl-5370DW and am trying to use it to print out manuals for a class of mine using the duplex print but after a few papers print the paper going back in jams and it tells me i...


I just returned my HL-5370DW printer to Staples. I only had it for 3 days and found it running hot, warping card stock and envelopes, and jamming regular size paper constantly. It appears to be OK for very small print jobs but not very robust. I did like the duplex printing and the price. I do not believe there is a solution other than replacing this printer.

Our machine shows E051. so what can i do.


The JAM DUPLEX message appears if you remove a sheet of paper from the face down output tray after only one side has printed.
The paper sizes you can use with the duplex printing function are A4, Letter or Legal.

If the paper adjustment lever for duplex printing is not set correctly for the paper size, paper jams may occur and the printing will be out of position on the page.


Open the back output tray.
Use both hands to slowly pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit.

Close the back output tray.
If the paper jam cannot be cleared, go to the next step.
Pull the duplex tray and paper tray out of the printer.
Pull the jammed paper out of the printer
Put the duplex tray and paper tray back in the printer.

Will not print because paper always jams


Perhaps there is paper still jammed inside the printer that you cannot see (or little bits from a previous jam)

1) Turn off the power
2) Disconnect the power cord and USB cable
3) Open the rear cover and see if paper is jammed inside the cassette area. Gently remove any paper and make sure no little bits of paper are left inside
4) Open the scanning unit (printer cover) and check that no paper is stuck internally. Be careful not to touch the components inside the printer.
5) Reattach the power cord and USB cable
6) Power On and retry your print job
