There must be somewhere still a tiny piece of paper. To check if the tomer is also good without a piece of paper stuck, put in a new tomer and see if the light is fine then. also try not to overload the paper tray just a few papers there and make sure there is no paper open all doors to the printer top and side and look for that small piece that is stuck somewhere
good luck
Please rank me good

If the printer is less than 1 year old, spray AIR to clean residuous of paper. If its possible clean the paper pick up roller and separation pad w/ alcohol isopropilic or soap and warm water (peace of rag or quill tip soaked in warm water. If the machine is used heavily used replace paper pick up roller and separation pad.

How do you open it up to remove a paper jam?


Hi, Most printers will work for many years with no problems, but occasionally a piece of paper jams in the printer. Here is a simple way to fix a paper jam and some tips on what to do if the problem persists.

Pull the paper out if it is visible. If not, then open the top of the printer so that the jammed piece of paper is visible.

Grasp the paper and pull gently but firmly. If the paper continues to jam in the printer, inspect the rollers to ensure that they are grabbing the paper and pulling it along the paper path properly.

Check the paper path for any obstructions, and clear if found. Also, inspect the other parts that the paper travels through, to ensure that they are not dirty or gummy. If any dirt or other debris is found, clean the parts and try again.

Close the top of the printer.

Place the printer back online. Try the print job again.

Also The flashing error code that indicates a jammed printer is the digital-age equivalent of a flat tire. Sooner or later it happens to everyone, so you'd better know how to get things moving again if you want to finish your print job.

Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.

Turn off the printer.

Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.

Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.

If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.

If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A) clear-printer-paper-1.6-120x120.jpg. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.

If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B) clear-printer-paper-1.7-120x120.jpg. Don't force anything, though.

Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.

If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.

Tips & Warnings

Referring to the owner's manual that came with the printer is always a wise precaution before attempting any type of fix to a problem.

All printers will wear out after a certain period of time. If the printer is old or has been used quite heavily, it is possible that a mechanical breakdown has occurred and parts must be replaced before it will work properly and print as it should. Have the printer serviced by an appropriate facility.

If you get toner or ink on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and then launder the clothing in cold water.

Watch out for loose toner or ink on jammed paper, and do your best to avoid spilling it on yourself or the printer. If a little bit of loose toner or ink gets in the printer, though, it should clear after a few sheets are printed.

I think that will do,if only if it the correct problem.

Thanks for using fixya....

6-part NCr paper form being used. Pages 1 and 2


This is a problem with your paper. Using multi-part forms on an impact printer will get lighter print on each layer working from the top form to the bottom. The "carbon" paper has to impact the paper hard enough to make the marks. If your top and bottom copies look good but some in the middle are light it is a problem with the "carbon" paper and not the printer.
Now IF the top page is light and each copy under that is getting lighter then you need to close your platen gap (the lever on the right side of the machine mark A B C) go one click at a time (darkening) until the print quality looks good (or you go too far and it pinches the paper and jams *not good*)

When turning on my Picture Mate,it says ERROR: Paper is jammed in the printer, remove the jammed paper, then Press (OK). I have done this many times and still get that message. What do I do?


I own a PictureMate Epson personal photo lab. It has been sitting on my desk for over 1 year with the message Error:Paper is jammed in the printer. Remove the jammed paper, then press (OK). I have done this, many times, I have talked to a "solution Person" and unfortunately they have told me it can't be fixed. I am just warning anyone else, not to buy this product. I have printed less than 100 pictures and it now doesn't work anymore. Just DON'T BUY THIS EPSON PRODUCT

Epson workforce 600 continue to get paper jam error and there is no paper jam..


If this message appears when you turn the printer on it will need a repair, this will be down to a sensor fault.
If this message appears when you try to print Check you are using the correct paper type and size settings, on the printer if being used standalone or via the printer driver if using via a computer.
Also try using a different paper type and brand ideally Epson paper as it is an Epson printer. If the fault continues the printer will need a service.
As this printer was released this year you should be covered by some form of warranty, contact Epson for a service.

2575 paper jam


This worked for me. If "Paper Jam" error message continues to appear after jam has been cleared, turn off power to printer. Navigate to Control Panel - Printers, right click on HP Photosmart 2570 series icon, click on Delete on drop down menu. This deletes printer from your system. Turn on power to printer. Printer will re-install (may need original installation disc, may not). "Paper Jam" error message should no longer appear.
