Hello,

You will have to open up the back cover, remove the paper tray and lift the lid (where the inks are) and try to fish out the piece of paper. You might want to use tweezers and a flashlight but it wont be easy to get to. The printers are pretty hard to get into when a paper is jammed. Usually a piece tears off and gets stuck in the carriage.

If you can't get the piece of paper out with the tweezers you might as well throw the printer out.

Thanks,

Pat

My canon MP287 cant print.black when photocopy. The paper also started to jam so it cant print. what will I do?


When there is a paper jamb make sure the whole piece of paper is removed because any tiny pieces of paper that are left behind will cause further paper jambs.
If the paper does not feed through the printer correctly then the rubber rollers are dirty/sticky. Clean the rollers with methylated spirits to stop the paper from sticking to the rollers.

I have a piece of paper stuck in the top of my hp 1012 printer and I cannot get at the area where the paper is.


Follow these steps to remove jammed paper from the printer

.
1.Open the print cartridge door, and then remove the print cartridge.
NOTE:  Opening the print cartridge door and removing the print cartridge relieves tension on the product rollers, which prevents damage to the product and makes the removal of jammed pages easier.

CAUTION:  To prevent damage to the print cartridge, cover it with a sheet of paper to minimize exposure to direct light.

 

2.With both hands, grasp the paper where it is most visible, including the middle, and then carefully pull the paper straight out of the product.

3.Look inside the product for any torn pieces of paper or labels, and then remove them.
4.If any jammed paper remains in the input tray or the output tray, grasp it with both hands and gently remove it.
5.Reinstall the print cartridge, and then close the print cartridge door.

1.Press the Power switch to turn off the product.
2.Wait 30 seconds, and then press the Power switch to turn on the product.

 

Happy printing.

My dcp 150c printer has been jammed for weeks, i have done everything it said in the manual but it won't unjam


This Brother printer could have a piece of paper stuck in it. When a paper jams, assemble the jammed page pieces to make sure all the pieces came out.
A jammed paper can also knock loose the paper detect arm that senses a paper in the machine. This detect arm is usually near the platen (The roller the print head prints against) to detect paper in the machine. If this arm is stuck, it could be sensing paper when there is none.
Rubber paper rollers should all be cleaned with rubbing alcohol or a mild soap solution (I use Windex) to prevent feed jamming.

My printer says offline and won't print


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

My printer keeps telling me it has a paper jam and there is no jam i am very frustrated because i am trying to print out t-ball stuff and can't


Open it up the best you can and look for any torn pieces of paper stuck with a flashlight and tweasers or some fine point needle nose pliers.
A sensor switch may be jammed by a an object like that that is hard to see except up close.

Brother 2040 paper light .. continuous red


If you removed a piece. But more remains it must also be removed. Look closely along the paper path for something that will release to provide access to the path.

False paper jam


Maybe the sensor flag has become dislodged from its mountings or a scrap of paper is stuck in the sensor.

Paper jam


if it picks up paper then say's jam you most likely have a very small piece of paper still jammed.look for a dent in the paper you pull out,if there is a dent then that's probably the problem.look where dent is on paper and that is where you should look for the piece that's causing the jam,if that does'nt solve problem i would need more info
