    I've got a similar problem. The machine starts to be "printing" but immediately falls to paper jam. I open the machine, release the paper, close the machine again but next paper does the same. It keeps repeating. Any suggestion? If you have an answer or a solution, please don't hesitate to write to Many thanks

    My Brother MFC-3820CN printer/fax is saying on the LCD - "Paper Jam. Open cover, then remove jammed paper." I have opened the cover and there is no paper jam at all. Please help?!

Darn, my problem was only solved after I blasted someone at HP and got a resolution to the problem, it was a new machine which did not work from day 1, after spending valuable time trying to find a resolution to the problem and speaking with someone who was very very difficult to understand, they then suggested I waste more time and deliver the machine to South Melbourne, miles away from where I purchased it at a local Officworks store. Turns out there was a bodgy card in the machine and this is why it did not work. Wast told we would have to wait without the machine for some 3 days, finally after more complaining I got it back after 48 hours. Sours the tase in my mouth and makes me wonder if I ever buy anything HP again.

Display ... ''clear paper jam''

First clear the possible paper jam using a air blower on the rollers and sensors most possible cause is the paper dust which block the sensors. then do a power cycle by unplugging the cable and leave it turned off for 5 mins and then reconnect, it should take care of the issue.

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.

Does it say clear jam immediatly or does it start to run then declare a jam?
If it starts then tells you to clear a jam and no paper is in the machine, your feed rollers are shot. Smooth like trying to drive a car on ice.
If it says that all the time, no attempt to feed then you have a sensor either dirty, knocked out of place or something stuck on a sensor.
Either in the paper path or in the scanner.

Clearing an error

well, one of two things have happened, 1. you haven't removed all of the jammed paper, maybe you left a small piece of a piece of paper or you may bent or broken your paper jam sensor. go through the paper path very carefully and check both things.

Fax fixable? error msg

We call the moose method of clearing paper jams, the RCMP method, cuz they only know how to shoot to kill. You did good. Except, there is no such thing as "Bending" anything. The term is "re-form."
