Printers are getting more and more finiky as the sensistivity for users go up.

Right after the paper pick up from the tray, there is a micro switch that tell the printer's processor what the paper is doing. If this microswitch is blocked for whatever reason, you will get this indication.
Unplug the printer.
Take out the paper tray (holder) and examine the area closely with a flashlight. Look at the edge of the paper path for items that may stick out of look floppy. These are contacts for switches.
Open the manual paper port in the rear of the printer and examine it also. If you find debris, use canned air or tweezers to remove it.
Not recommended to use big hammer and size 3 screwdriver.

If you can find debris and remove it, then try to use your printer once more. If after the examination you find nothing but the problem persists, return it to the store and get and exchange.

Good luck

I have a Brother MFC 420cn and it keep saying paper jam and there is no paper jam help please


->Clear any loose paper from the paper tray. This will help you locate the jam. You will find it either in front, near the paper tray, or in the rear.

->To clear a paper jam near the paper tray, grip the paper and pull it firmly but gently from the printer. If you find a stack of papers jammed, grab from the middle of the stack and pull.

->For a rear jam, remove the back of the printer. When you find a free edge on the paper, grip it firmly and pull it out.

->Replace the back cover. Press the "Resume" button or turn off the printer, and then turn it back on. Your settings should reset.

->Try printing another document

My printer keeps saying there is a paper jam. But


If the printer is sensing a paper jam, then there is either a small piece of paper jammed under a sensor, or the sensor is falsely reporting a jam.

If you cannot find the sliver of paper, I suggest that you contact Canon Technical Support or take the printer to an authorized repair shop.

Canon MX300 Paper Jam


I have the same problem - every time I turn on my printer now, the alarm signal shows up with "Paper jam" but when I check for jammed paper, there is none. So I think there's something faulty with the printer. Is there any way to reset it? I've looked everywhere but can't find it.
