Please use a good source of light focussed on to the mouth of the feed, check for damamged paper bits that is stuck on to the sides. carefully pull them out to free the feed. Also check for any dirt on the feed, you can use a good cleaner mildly soaked to wash off the dirt on the rubber rollers. open up the printer section to remove any such dirt fromthe paper tracks. Further if this wont have solved the issue, you will have to look at the drive while the paper is loaded. check fromthe motor drive, the gear drive for any dirt or alignment issues. if so get it trimmed a bit to allow the motor to run smoothly. use some nylon grease if required. Hope this help out.Good day

Epson dfx9000 it gives me paper jam


Hi there,
My epson printer showed a paper jam light although no paper was visible.
I discovered my son had had a paper jammed and ripped the paper out and a tiny piece was jammed inside but was not visible easily.
***NO RESPONSIBILITY ACCEPTED FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE IF YOU USE THIS SOLUTION I USED TO FIX MY PRINTER*********
i cut an A4 sized square of cardboard from a cereal packet.
I inserted this instead of paper and attempted to use the feed paper button to eject the paper jam.
This did not initially work so as i kept pressing the paper feed button i forced the cardboard into the printer in the same direction that the paper feeds whilst printing.
The cardboard pushed the tiny piece of paper out.
Turn off the printer and then turn back on - you should find the printer now works.
I also found it helpful to clean the feed path and to try and keep dust from settling in the printer.
If it is in a dusty environment it helps to keep the printer covered when not in use - you can buy plastic covers for this or any large plastic will do but does not look as aesthetically pleasing.
Hope this has helped.

Printer jams frequently. Jam is in the paper tray. It appears to try to pick up a sheet of paper and can't. When you open the paper tray the sheet of paper has been lifted up, but not enough to pull it...


Locate the paper lifter and the initial rollers and clean these with isopropil alcohol and a Q tip. These items become hard and polished and will not grip the paper properly, causing the jam.

Toshiba 2860.. auto doc feeder keeps jamming.. seems like one side is feeing and other had side isnt or something similar. Any ideasa?


In any doc feeder, the initial two feed rollers and one paper separator pad/roller handle most of the paper transportation. So usually if you have misfeeds, and the paper is not crumpling up, you have a problem with worn or dirty feed rollers. However, if the paper is getting crumpled up, you most likely have a physical obstruction blocking the paper path. My recommendation for when this happens is to take a thick piece of card stock and manually feed it through the paper path on the doc feeder, this usually acts to unclog any jammed paper bits or debris.

Stops feeding paper at start of printing and repeatedly states there is a paper jam. why wont it feed and how do I get paper out as it is a sealed unit. initially paper was feeding too far thr so printing...


With out knowing the make and Model of the copier it can be difficult!
Suggest that you clean the rollers that pick up the paper with a clean lint free cloth and water.Ensure that you unplug the machine from the power point first.

Paper jams when initially feeding paper, pulls strong to the right and buckles paper which causes the jam, its only a few months old.


Remove all the paper and check the enterance for debris,(Staples, paperclips, post it notes or signature flags.) open the machine and check for the same.

Hope this is of some help.

Hello my printer mp470 keep saying error paper output slot the paper is jammed clear the paper nad press ok i did all that and its still saying the same message do you have a phone number that i can call


Please follow the instruction given below ...
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.

Paper jam is showing on printer info., but ther's no paper jam.


Ok this issue ussually occurs when the roller feed doesn't load the paper due to the following reasons:
1. If your printer is operating for  more than two years or so... gear tear will most likely to occur. If you can open the printer and check everytime the printer initiates after power on ad if the roller feed doesn't rotate but the leftmost rotary gear with the encoder wheel rotates, the gear is most likely to be loose even there is no paper jam nor dust contamination on the rubber and paper feed mechanism. You need to replace the said gear with the encoder strip . A simple solution would be aplying epoxy resin so it will be fixed on the rotary shaft. It may last for quite sometime but better yet replace the gear.
2. The feeder rollers might be dirty and needs to be cleaned and greased the gears.
3. Probable defective print cartridge. Try replacing it with a new one. 

But based on the items above, if your printer is operating more than a year or two, and frequent paper jam is being experienced, gear tear near the motor is the culprit.

False Paper Jam Message


Probably a jam sensor is dirty or stuck. Look through the paper path for a stuck plastic sensor arm, or dirt or paper dust on photocell typr sensors.Paper sensors are normally located near where paper feeds, and where it exits the machine. The paper must pass over these sensors as it travels through the machine.If a scrap of paper is left on the sensors, they will report it as a jam. If you can, try manually pushing a sheet of paper through the printer, ONLY in the direction it normally feeds. This may free up a stuck sensor arm, or force out the jammed scrap.
