I get message to pull out jammed paper but I cannot find end of the paper to pull out


Try blowing the printer out with a can of compressed air. Tiny bits of paper will often get stuck in the "eye" of the optical reader that tells the printer that it has a jam. Compressed air can blow this debris loose.

Another thing to double-check is the paper tray. Remove the paper tray and inspect the place where the paper gets pulled into the printer. Sometimes you will find a sheet of paper stuck there that isn't readily apparent anywhere else.

Paper jam 2 but no paper is stuck


Most printers/faxes need more than one or two sheets of paper in the hopper in order for printing to commence. If it's not that, take out all paper. Turn off the printer/fax. Wait five minutes and turn printer/fax back on. With some printers/faxes, that almost acts like a re-boot. Good luck!

Paper not going through and when it does it jams


Clean the entire printer of old paper, and bits and paper. You will be surprised how often a little piece of paper is stuck somewhere. Buy a bright LED torch, keep by printer ,so can check carefully.
Try a thinner paper, 70gsm. Thicker paper jams more often.
Buy fresh pack of paper. Paper gets wet. Old paper jams.
If older printer then the rollers might be dirty and sticky. Can use a cotton bud to wash with alcohol. Otherwise put your paper in a closed container and keep it dry. If damp/humid , then the paper gets sticky.
I am a finance whistleblower and have used some 10 printers and 1 10,000$ photocopier, all worn out. Sometimes just got to go buy a printer.
Buy the most cheapest printer. When it dies, go buy another. That way never loose money on big scan/print/fax dog printers. Use a local fax company and photocopy company - let them wear out their printers.
God bless John

I have an Intellifax 2820 and there is an error message of paper jam inside... I have cleaned all paper out of machine... please help me


A jam sensor may be stuck by a paper scrap. Try manually pushing a sheet of paper through the machine IN THE DIRECTION IT IS NORMALLY FED. This may force out any stuck scraps. The jam sensors are usually located where the paper feeds and where it exits the machine. Also, make sure ALL ACCESS PANELS YOU OPENED TO CLEAR JAMS ARE CLOSED PROPERLY. Otherwise, the jam code will not clear.

How do I remove the covers on a Xerox XE60 Photocopier?


Try forcing a sheet of paper through the machine by hand. Feed the paper only in the direction it normally goes. This may free up the sensor. Thin cardstock may be used instead of paper.
