    I can see just a small edge of paper through the back - not enough to grip and pull out. It's a canon mp 830. I was printing duplex - it printed the first side, then jammed as it was pulling the paper back.

    I cleared my paper jam, but can't get rid of paper jam error message and still won't print as long as the message is showing.

This is a notorious problem of the HP 7000 OfficeJet series, the last place we often look are the actual gears which feed the paper.

If you can't or wont' return the printer to the dealer or service center, then be prepared to follow the paper feed and using a pair of needle nose pliers, see how easily every feed roller turns by using the pliers and gripping the rubber wheels and rotating them in the direction of the paper feed

Any of the rollers that turn reluctantly or require excessive force have likely become jammed with paper shards in their gears and using a flashlight, look for any slivers or pieces of paper in the gear teeth.

Since the HP's are underpowered, all it takes is a paper sliver barely thicker than a few strands of hair to foul up the mechanism which appears to be as large as jammed **** to the printer sensors which is why you're recieving the Paper Jam warning despite the fact you've cleaned very visible sheet from the device.

Use any sharp instrument to clean those shards from the gears and close the lids to see if your Paper Jam errors have been cleared.

My company has hundreds of satellite offices and this is the most common issue since a paper jam is hard to clear in these devices, people often have to just rip the paper out backwards and it those "shrapnels of paper" that end up fouling the mechanisms.

An example of how to clear these gears is at an Amazon product review found here:

My lexmark inkjet printer model p4350 requests to clear paper jam. How can i clear it when i still cant identify a paper stuck inside the printer


Hi

If you cannot see any paper inside the most likely cause is the microswitch that detects a jam has stuck in the on postion or there is a small bit of paper stuck on it look for the switch and un jam or remove the small bit of paper on it

Hi, My printer had a paper Jam and I am pretty sure some paper got stuck however i cant find any when lifting the top up.It now wont work and the alarm light is flashing ThanksJemma


Hi,

Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred. Step2 Turn off the printer. Step3 Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper. Step4 Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge. Step5 If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it. Step6 266_a1.jpg If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam. Step7 266_a2.jpg If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper . Don't force anything, though. Step8 Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on. Step9 If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.

If you still face the problem let me know..

Goodluck..

Stylus CX9400 Photo Printer: paper jammed inside printer...


If paper is jammed, a Paper jam message will appear on the control panel display.

Follow these steps to clear the jam:

  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out of the output tray or sheet feeder.

  2. If the paper is stuck inside, turn off the Epson Stylus CX.

  3. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the Epson Stylus CX back on.

    alert_note.gif Note: Be sure to check the far left of the carriage area when checking for jammed paper. Paper that is jammed there may be hidden from view.
If paper jams inside the Automatic Document Feeder, clear the jam as follows:

  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover and remove any jammed paper.

  2. If necessary, lift the document cover and remove any paper that has jammed inside.

  3. Press OK to clear any messages on the display screen.

Paper jam


Make sure there are no bits and pieces inside your printer. You can check this by opening your printer cover and checking the 'cartridge run-way'. If you can't find anything unplug then replug your printer.

Paper jam


The way you describe your error, it seems that there is still some residual paper stuck inside the printer that may cause subsequent paper to be mis-aligned.

Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

Hp6210 says "Paper Jam. Clear Jam and then Press OK". There is no paper stuck in it, nothing visible at all.


Open the rear clean out cover and check for a jam. Or the rear clean out cover could just be off like mine was. I was get out of paper message. So I found a the HP help manual that there was a rear clean out. I reached around back and found that i twas off, I popped it back on and it works just fine now.

E-04 Clear Paper Jam, no paper in printer


  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

CLEAR PAPER JAM STAYES ON I CANT SEE ANYTHING


Providing the printer brand and model can help zeroing on the problem but paper jam error that won't go away usually mean that the sensor lever got stucked. With the printer unplug, check the paper path. A small piece of paper may have torn and got stuck in the sensor lever. In rare occasion, the sensor itself is damaged or broken off.
