Seems like the rollers are either dirty, or worn out. Probably the latter.

My HP4100 keeps jamming under the toner cartridge. I have a repairman look at it 2 times and he cannot figure it out. Does anyone know what would be causing the jam. It seems to happen mostly on short...


1) Check all the paper jam locations (see "Clearing paper jams" in your printer manual). A piece of paper might be stuck somewhere in the printer. Even a small torn piece of paper in the printer path can cause repeated jams.
2) If you are using a duplexer, check all the areas (including under the duplexer).
3) Check that the paper is correctly loaded in the tray - that all paper tray adjustments have been made, and that the trays are not overfilled. Make sure the paper is under the front and back tabs. (See the section on "loading paper" from your printer manual.)
4) Check that all trays and paper handling accessories are completely
inserted into the printer. (If a tray is opened during a print job, this might cause a paper jam.)
5) Check that all covers and doors are closed. (If a cover or door is opened during a print job, this might cause a paper jam.)
6) Try printing to a different output bin or tray
7) The sheets might be sticking together. Try bending the stack to separate each sheet.
8) If you are printing from tray 1, try reducing the size of the stack.
If printing from the envelope feeder, make sure it is loaded correctly,
9) If you are printing small sizes, feed paper short edge first (see
the "Guidelines for printing custom-size paper" in your printer manual).
10) Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also try rotating the paper 180 degrees.
11) Check the characteristics of the media you are using. Use only paper that meets HP specifications (see the "Paper Specifications" in your user manual).
12) Try using different paper to see if the problem goes away. Do not use curled, deformed, damaged, or irregular paper.
13) Check that the environmental conditions for the printer are met (see the "Environmental Specifications" in your printer's user guide).
14) Avoid using paper that has already been used in a printer or copier.
15) Check that the power supplied to the printer is steady and meets printer specifications (refer to the "Electrical Specifications" in your printer's users guide).
16) Clean the printer and rollers (refer to the "Cleaning the Printer" section of your printer's user's guide).
17) Perform preventative printer maintenance if maintenance is due (refer to the "Performing Preventative Maintenance" section of your printer's user's guide).

I have a 5650 lexmark printer and it keeps saying paper jams but there is not paper anywhere.. how can i find a solution... when you load paper it keepps getting stuck.. help


There could be something blocking the paper path. Try to shake the printer upside down. You'll be amazed of the things that falls off inside the printer. Also, make sure that there's no paper left inside the printer. Tiny pieces of paper will still lead to paper jams.

Page is not loading during printing


Occasionally, paper cannot be load during a print job.

Some of causes include:

• The tray is overfilled.

• The front cover has been opened during a print job.

• Paper that does not meet paper specifications has been used.

• Paper that is outside of the supported size range has been used.

If a paper jam occurs, the On Line/Error LED on the control panel lights red.

Find and remove the jammed paper. If it is invisible, look inside the printer.

I keep getting paper jams. Even if I put one sheet of paper in at a time, the paper keeps jamming and won't print.


Hi
I live in the mid west - during our significantly humid days my 926 wouldn't pull in any paper. I tried a lot of home grown techniques but none worked. I finally raised the air temp in my office which tended to dry out the paper and that worked. Of course your problem could be a broken gear or a worn out feed tire - also something stuck in the printer.

Paper is jamming during printing process. Gets half way round and jams. please suggest solutions


There are rollers that the paper has to go between to be pulled forwards. When the rollers get dirty with paper dust, paper starts jamming. So you need to clean the rollers with a moist (not wet) soft cloth, Keep rolling the rollers manually and keep cleaning them. Then allow a few minutes to dry them up. And no jam after that.

Paper jams lexmark x3550


You need to visually inspect the rollers. I suspect that there is a small piece of paper jamming the paper path. Check where it is jamming, and inspect.

Repeated, Unexplained Paper Jams With Little or No Damage to the Paper ID:ENUS5286 null.gif null.gif null.gif
IMPORTANT: The printer should rest on a surface that is flat, level, and uniform. This is for safety reasons as well as for paper feed reliability. In the bottom left corner on the front of the printer, as well as on the duplexer and each paper feed option apart from the 2000-sheet feeder, there is a shaft that rotates as the main drive motor in the printer operates. The purpose of this shaft (called the Power Take Off shaft) is to turn the pass-through rollers in the option below. The Power Take Off (PTO) shaft rotates during the printer's POR as well as any time the main drive motor turns, including while paper is feeding from any source and when the toner is agitated in the cartridge.
If the printer is on an uneven or non-level surface, the PTO shaft may not make full contact with the bevel gear on the lower options.
If the printer is on a surface that is not uniform (such as a carpet or foam padding), the PTO shaft on the lowest option may catch or bind, causing the paper feed operation to slow or stop completely.
In either case, repeated and unexplained paper jams (with little or no damage to the paper) may occur. The paper jam is due to the increased amount of time it takes the paper to feed through the path because the PTO shaft is bound or caught on the surface below, or is slipping on the bevel gear.
NOTE: This is not a printer defect or failure although it may result in a broken or stripped PTO shaft.

Paper jam?


There is most likely some paper jammed inside the printer. You just have to carefully look everywhere you can see to see if there might be a little bit of paper stuck somewhere.

Often blowing gently (and dryly) into the printer will dislodge whatever is stuck.
