XANTE Screenwrite4 "Paper Jam"

I have a XANTE Screenwriter4 that continues to say there is a paper jam when there is not one. Not 5 minutes before this started I was printing films with out a problem. I have tried to restart the printer. I have re-set it holding down the "Online" and "Tray Select" buttons on start up. It is now flashing "Ready/Printing", "Exit Paper Jam". Again, this printer was working fine 5 minutes before this incident. PLEASE help! I am out of ideas.

    mine does the same thing. I open the lid and shut it again and it starts over. Sometimes I have to open and shut the lid 5 times before it takes in a piece of paper. It always seems to take the paper OK from tray 1, but not from the MP feeder.

SOURCE: EXIT JAM PROBLEM

Open the printer, pull out the drum kit, place the drum kit in a dark place, use a vacuum cleaner and a brush and wipeout all dusk, but be carefuly cleaning it.
At could be a sensor that are dirty.

SOURCE: Front Paper Jam

I'm not 100% sure that this will work. I have a 3N, when we first got it I had the same problem. After clearing the jam - You have to open the top portion of the printer. Even if the jam is no where around that area... the printer won't reset itself until you lift that top piece. I even tried to turn it off, thinking it would reset...it didn't.

I know the 4g is much newer then mine...but being it's the same company.. this problem might be fixed the same way.

Good Luck.

Remove the fuser and examine it closely (Note: the fuser gets extremely hot. Wait until it has cooled completely before touching it!) Paper or a paper fragment might be balled up inside it.

Even just re-seating the fuser might clear the sensor that is reporting this jam.

If the printer continues to stall with this error code, even though there is no jam, it could have a faulty sensor. This would have to be repaired with a service call...

If you checked everything, trays, ink cartridge etc., and see no paper jam anywhere, take the top cover off and look inside the (head) for the jammed paper! This printer is problem free.

Unfortunately this may require and engineers visit. If you pull down the MP assembly by using the handle in the middle at the front of the printer you can then see a small "gearbox" at the right hand side of the transfer belt. This is common to feeds from both trays and could be worn. If you remove tray 1 and temporarily tape up the sensor arms to fool the printer into thinking it has a full tray installed, you can the test, by applying a little pressure to the feed roller, to see if it positively moves forward or if you are able to stop it turning. On a brighter note, you may just need new rollers instead of cleaning them.

SOURCE: media jam tray- contiueous. if i lift tray up, it wotks

I had a similar problem but not necessarily identical cause. Mine was due to the rubber rollers which grip the sheet of paper. I clean the rubber wheels with diluted alcohol 50/50 using cotton buds. That did the tricks for awhile & eventually had to have a new set of rollers put in.
Well, try the cleaning bit & good luck.

PS I came across this site by accident, I certainly will come back. Cheers

Xante 3G - indicates 'print' then constant 'front paper jam' (any size)


That is cause the paper feeder is not working properly. It could cause the roller that feed the paper wear out or a bad tray release selenoid

Front paper jam


Always try to remove a paper jam without tearing the paper.
If torn, make sure no scraps of it are missing.
Lokk for any tiny scraps, esp stuck on paper path sensor.
