Possibly that a foreign object, ( label, scrap of paer), has fallen down inside on the left hand side, and it not letting the feed roller catch the paper, the right roller gets it and then it jams. You can get a torch and have a look where the paper goes in to see if this is the case. Dismantling a printer is not an easy job, and it would probably be cheaper on ink to buy a new one.

Paper Jam Error.. but paper jam not exist

If the jam resets after opening and closing door, then its misfeeding caused by a faulty feed clutch. Can swop it with by-pass clutch. Same thing just different colour plugs.

If it doesn't reset at all after opening or closing the right cover you either have a faulty or out of position side door micro switch that is not activating.
Or the other problem could be that the registration sensor actuator is stuck in the up position. Not moving freely.

Paper misfeeding on one side but printer keeps printing with no paper

Look for any foriegn objects or old torn paper from an earlier jam. Something is either obstructing or mis-guiding the paper. If nothing is found, use a can of compressed air to blow thr paper intake area out, then test print again.

If still not solved, use a cottom swan soaked in alcohol to scrub clean the rubber paper pickup roller. Over time it gets slick from paper dust and the paper will notget grabbed evenly, causing it to skew as it's pulled in.

MY 81/2X11 inch paper feeds crooked into the printer and jams.

Get a flashlight and look into the printer where the paper enters (Leave it jammed ). If the end, right side moves slower than the left, it is hitting something , check for a paper fragment from a previous jam or other debris. The leading edge of your paper should be touching the debris.

Paper keeps misfeeding in Dell AIO 924

I first wonder if you have children. if so, then open the lid and/ or look in the paper feed area for plastic tools, band aids, etc. (worked in tech support and once had a gerbil stuck in a printer by it's tail! OUCH!)

if you can't see anything, then take a letter sized piece of poster board and try to run it through, that should clear any foreign debris (such as paper clips or pieces of post-it notes that you may not be able to see) good luck!

Paper jams at fusion stage

I keep getting paper jammed at the fuser every single attemp to print. It's difficult to remove and the paper often tears when trying to pull it out.

This is most annoying since the printer is just outside of warranty and i just bought a new black toner cartridge. They don't make this printer anymore and I'm afraid the cost to repair would most likely exceed $200.

Looks like I have a nice new boat anchor now :(

Paper jam

What that sounds like is misfeeding.
Remove your paper tray and take a soapy cleaner, like formula 109 or fantastic and thoroughly clean the rollers.
If that helps and it statrs misfeeding in a day or two, you probably have slick rollers.
Watch inside the paper feed. Make sure the paper is going against the rollers then see if they just spin on the paper.
