MF4350d gives a paper jam error when it has no paper in it.


I hired a technician who came to house and showed me where the paper jam was hidden... found technician on craigslist for $50 flat rate, came out on Saturday. He solved the paper jam problem in 20 minutes. One place to check for paper jam you cannot see until to look behind a hinged plastic flap above the cartridge area. Remove cartridge.Above the cartridge area is a width-wide plastic piece, about 1 to 1 1/2 inch wide from top to bottom, hindged along the top edge, moves but is attached along the two lower corners of the piece by small springs (one at each corner) to the housing of the machine. You cannot easily lift the plastic flap up to look behind it for paper jam until you remove the springs. I used forceps to remove them. Tweezers may work. Don't lose them! Once you remove the springs you can easily lift up the plastic flap (it is hinged) and look behind it into the crevices for any paper. That is where we found a small piece of paper. We needed a skinny forceps to reach into the crevice to get the paper out.

Paper jam???


Follow these steps :
1.1
Remove all paper from the trays. This will prevent further jams during the clearing.
2.2
Remove the covering to the printer's outer case to expose the jam. Locate the jammed paper to ensure there is not another problem causing the stall.
3.3
Pull gently on the jammed paper, taking care not to tear it. In most cases, this will remove the jam.
4.4
Press the flashing "Printer Jam" button. This will allow the rotors to turn and facilitate the release of the jam.
5.5
Turn off the printer and firmly pull on the jammed paper. Be careful not to tear it.
6.6
Remove remaining paper shreds. if a tear occurs, remove any residual paper that may hamper printing.
7.7
Refill the paper tray and try printing again. If the jam persists, repeat the process and search for more paper.

Hello, I have a Dell 3130cn printer. IT is currently displaying the following message: Paper Jam 071-100 / Open Tray 1 and remove paper / Open and close the Front panel. I have done all of these things. I...


This error can also be caused by other problems, two of which are as follows.

1) The paper tray has a flap which opens when the MPF (Multi Purpose Feeder) is lowered. If this flap has been pushed out of one of its pivot points due to 'rough' handling of the paper tray, it can cause paper jams, and it can sometime cause the printer to 'think' it has a jam.

Just re-locate the flap properly, and make sure that it does open when you pull the MPF down.

I've seen this happen on a fe of these printers - keep your thumb OFF the flap of the paper tray when you open and close it to reload it with paper.


2) Paper quality can be a cause - seen this happen on this printer when a different paper was used - more likely with a printer that has done a lot of work and the pickup/transport rollers are starting to wear.
Replacement pickup and transport rollers are available quite cheaply on THAT well known internet auction site (and probably elsewhere to)

Paper jam


The following is general advice that applies to removing paper jams in most printers, copiers, etc.

Switch off the printer at the wall and unplug it. Remove the paper tray from the printer. Check to see if the printer has an access door in the rear to allow you to see inside (open it). Open any other external flaps (eg. manual paper feed tray) that will allow you to see inside. Open any internal flaps or levers designed for user operation and usually indicated with a green or orange coloured tab.

Always remove jammed paper by pulling it in the direction of normal travel only. Don't try to pull it out against the direction that it entered the printer. Sometimes rollers inside the machine have a knob (usually coloured green or orange) that can be used to manually wind the page through the printer or fax. Always turn in direction of arrow indicated only.

After removing page, return all levers, flaps, doors, paper trays etc to original positions, reconnect power to the printer and test

Paper jammed message won't go away


Presumably this error follows an actual paper jam (whether the culprit has admitted it or not). The following is general advice that applies to paper jams in most printers, copiers, etc.

In my experience at least 98% of paper jam errors are because a piece of paper is still caught inside the printer. The remainder are generally due to a damaged paper jam detector (usually a small plastic arm which actuates a switch inside the printer) or less commonly a failure on the PC board which senses paper jams.

Please return to point 1 and look (again) for a piece of paper jammed in the printer. If the jammed paper was torn from the printer, only a small remnant has to remain inside the printer to generate an unclearable paper jam error.

Switch off the printer at the wall and unplug it. Remove the paper tray from the printer. Check to see if the printer has an access door in the rear to allow you to see inside (open it). Open any other external flaps (eg. manual paper feed tray) that will allow you to see inside. Open any internal flaps or levers designed for user operation and usually indicated with a green or orange coloured tab. Occasionally a page can wrap completely around a roller and be very hard to see. Be very suspicious of any 'white' roller' - check at the ends to note if the roller is actually a different colour with a complete page wrapped around it (generally then only removable by tearing other than complete disassembly by a professional). If paper was torn you may need a pair of tweezers and some determination to remove any small paper pieces wedged inside the printer. Ensure the printer is unplugged from the wall and avoid damaging any rollers or other parts inside the printer. Always remove jammed paper by pulling it in the direction of normal travel only. On rare occasions very serious paper jams may need expert service to dismantle and reassemble the printer.

After finding and removing all paper pieces, return all levers, flaps, doors, paper trays etc to original positions, reconnect power to the printer and test.

Printer now not printing, as it says there is a paper jam


it sounds as though your pick up rollers are worn. when the oprinter can not pick the paper from the selected tray (tray 2 in your case) then it shows up as a jam. to sort this you will need:

One of these: RM1-0036-020: PAPER PICK-UP ROLLER ***'Y
Two of these: RM1-0037-020: PAPER FEED ROLLER ***'Y

Hope This Helps
