Your program is probably set to "Paper Size" longer than the actual paper in the tray

Our Canon jx210p fax keeps saying "chk printer


CHK PRINTER 5100 / SEE MANUAL
Cause Action Movement of the Holder is blocked. Clear the paper jam or foreign object that is preventing the Holder from moving, then turn off the machine and turn it back on again. There may be an obstruction that is not allowing the Holder mechanism to move. Check for any obstruction (paper clip, small object, etc.) and also that the protective tape are removed from the FINE Cartridge. Check also for a paper jam and clear the jam if necessary . Then press [Stop/Reset] and start again. The FINE Cartridge may be defective. Press [Stop/Reset]. Reinstall the FINE Cartridge (see Prepare the Machine ) and start again.In either case, if the error does not clear, try unplugging the fax. Wait several minutes, then plug it back in. Also, try replacing the FINE Cartridge with a new one. An error requiring servicing might have occurred. Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply. After a while, plug the power cord of the machine back in and turn on the machine. If the same error occurs, contact the service center.

Says paper jam when none exists


Ah, I feel your pain! Been there.

Make sure you are doing a complete inspection on your printer. You may have removed what you thought was causing the jam, but in actuality there may still be a small piece of paper within the paper feed mechanism. Make sure you check both the front and rear (if you have both) doors of your printer.

I would also suggest cleaning the paper rollers (the little rubber looking wheels that move the paper through your printer). They can get dusty and not grasp the paper as well as they originally did.

As for the cartridges slamming, check the plastic strip that connects to the cartridge carriage. It may not be connected properly.

Paper jam, but no paper inside


There is a sensor in all printers that report this error. It may be electrical (electric eye) or mechanical (roller connected to a sensitive switch (also electric)).

I am not intimately familiar with the innards of all printers currently in use, including yours. Still, I offer this advice.

Your printer is "jammed" because something is saying so. (What?) The roller and/or switch may be stuck in the 'jammed' position or the electric "eye" may be dirty or possibly there could be a short somewhere (I doubt it, but it is a possibility) Now think about this, the switch is very sensitive, it must be to detect the thickness of one sheet of paper. You will not see a lot of movement if it is mechanical.

Error messages are frequently generated by sensors (switchs of some kind) In your case, the sensor is closed (like turning on a light in the living room) and telling you the light is on in the living room, so to say.

Even though you have inspected the device closely, you must re-examine and find the sensor and clear it.

I hope this information helps you.

There will likely be other question catchers pick up your question and give you other advice. Try all the options you receive until you resolve the error.

Saying clear paper jam, I have done, there is no paper jam


Clearing a paper jam in a Lexmark laser printer is an easy thing to do. Laser printers produce high-quality products and are fairly complex machines, but paper jams (in most cases) can be solved mechanically with a little know-how and time. Follow these steps to learn how to clear a paper jam in a Lexmark laser printer.
  1. ep 1 Take the paper out of the paper trays. This will prevent any more paper from being drawn into the printer to further the jam.
  2. Step 2 Remove the cover from the housing of your Lexmark laser printer. This will expose the inner workings of the printer, and you also should be able to see the jammed paper.
  3. Step 3 Pull gently on the jammed paper. In many cases this is all that is required; the paper jam should move out slowly and smoothly.
  4. Step 4 Press the flashing paper jam button. This will allow the rotors to turn freely, which will facilitate the easy removal of the jam.
  5. Step 5 Unplug your Lexmark laser printer if the jam persists. This will allow you to pull more firmly without the gears working against you.
  6. Step 6 Examine the inner workings and confirm that all paper and shreds of paper have been removed. If the paper tore during the clearing, make sure none remains or it will inhibit normal printer function.
  7. Step 7 Plug the printer back in, refill the paper tray and try to print again.
    • Make sure to use a printer and paper type that are compatible. Consult your owner’s manual and the manufacturer’s Web site.
    • To deal with a large jam, it might be necessary to pull sheets from the middle of the jam in order to loosen the whole thing.
    • Always pull the paper “with the grain” of the mechanism, if possible. Pull it through the printer the way paper normally travels so that you don’t go against the gears.
    • For more serious repairs, contact an electronic store or professional repair person.

Printer says paper jam but there is none


Look Inside of each cover on the printer & see if there is a small piece of paper inside. Also, check if there is loose dust from the paper built up by the sensor switches. If none of these work, try flipping the sensor switches manually. Sometimes these get stuck in a particular bad paper jam.

Canon MX300 Paper Jam


I have the same problem - every time I turn on my printer now, the alarm signal shows up with "Paper jam" but when I check for jammed paper, there is none. So I think there's something faulty with the printer. Is there any way to reset it? I've looked everywhere but can't find it.
