Look for small torn off paper @ the sensor, 2 ) clean the sensor 3) check the actuator it might be deformed 4) check proper position of tension spring of the actuator. Some Printer & copier has reset procedure after removing the paper jam.
A few easy things to try. First off, have you power cycled the unit since checking for a paper jam? Often that will clear false errors.
If not, look for the sensors. They should be somewhere along the paper path, and consist of a plastic lever that will be pushed down as the paper moves past them. Usually these levers have springs attached - if the spring comes off, it will register a paper jam. You'll probably have to take off some of the housing to get to them.
I'm not sure this will help much, but since I found it I'll post it. The user's manual:
If the sensor needs replaced (most often due to something simple like a piece of plastic breaking on it), you can order new sensor PCB assemblies (sensor and its small control board) here:
They also sell a parts manual, but it's a bit pricey.
Check all the paper movement from the tray, left or right cover, front cover, if so then remove jammed paper. Otherwise the paper sensor spring guide missing or fell off from its original position. Check carefully where the sensor locate. paper sensors detect all the paper movement in the machine during copying or printing, so locate the place in the machine which the paper usually jammed, see the screen of the machine, it will locate the place where the paper jammed mostly. Sensor not return to it original position that is why ( remove paper jam keeps blinking)
Lexmark T630 241 paper jam message- Indicates a paper jam from the pull down manual feed tray.
If you check to make sure and small fragments of paper are not hindering the operation of the switch.The switch is located on the left side of the tray and will be spring loaded.The switch should move freely without binding. Make sure no toner or dust is on the optical sensor assembly. See Diagram for location.
If the switch seems OK and the printer still reports an error, the printer will require professional care.
This usually happens when a sensor that detected a paper jam has not reset itself after removing the paper. Make sure that when the jam was removed - all the paper came out and there is/was not a small piece missing that could have been left behind in the copier and is hiding somewhere. If you are sure the paper has all been removed then what could have happened is when the jam was being removed it could have caught on one of the paper sensors. This could pull the little flag that activates the sensor out of place - giving a false paper jam message. there are only a handfull of sensors in the paper path. remove the paper tray and make sure there is no paper stuck behind the tray or in the cavity where the tray goes. look and follow very closely the path the paper takes - look for any sensors/flags the paper would avtivate and make sure the flag moves freely and is not lopsided.
Make sure you also try unplugging and replugging the copier from the wall.
Hope this helps
Check the paper tray guides, check the the paper feed roller (remove the tray and look up in the printer) it is possibly worn and needs replacing, you can try to clean it (hand soap is as good as anything)
You probably have a piece of paper in there some where, your not seeing it? get a flash light look real close. This is a paper tray code, take the trays out, all the way look in there, Open the side door to the left look in there..
Or it could be a bad sensor. but I would guess there is a piece of paper there. (happens all the time)
and remmber " if you rip a piece of paper out, look at the sheet, if there is a piece ripped / missing from the paper, that piece is in the machine somewhere"
