Pape jams is caused by either a physical jam or an unknown printer error to determine which one is it follow this steps.

1.If it just came out of the box make sure that before you turn it on of connect to the computer that all tapes has been removed and no foreign objects is within the printer when you lift up the scanner part of the unit.

2. It may not make sense but one of the common mistakes is that the left side of the printer is not being check throughly I would like you to double-check in the area.

3. Lastly, if you really don't see anything that maybe cause this error message unfortunately, I would recommend that you contact Epson or the place where you have purchased it to get a replacement. Its not advisable that you tear apart the printer becuase that woukd void the manufacturer's one-year warranty.

SOURCE: Epson Stylus photo 340 r printer paper jam when trying to print

first, make sure you the paper correctly to avoid paper jam.
Single Sheets 1. Open the paper support and raise the extension. 2. Place your paper short edge first against the right edge of the feeder, under the tab, with the printable (whiter or glossier) side up. If you are loading multiple sheets, fan the stack of paper before loading it to prevent paper jams. Note: Don’t load paper above the arrow mark inside the left edge guide. Some special papers can be loaded only one sheet at a time. Slide the left edge guide against the paper. Make sure it is snug, but not so tight that the paper is bent. (For letter- or A4-size paper, you may not need to move the edge guide over.) paper.4.2.1.jpg 4. Open the output tray and pull out the extension. You should also follow these guidelines:Always load the short edge first, even when you’re printing landscape-oriented pictures. • When using special papers, check the paper package for additional instructions. Some papers require using a support sheet included in the package. Note: Always keep unused paper in the original package and store it flat to prevent curling.
if you loaded the paper, it jammed again, remove the paper and tried to print, still the same, its a hardware issue, alraedy, the printers roller is broken

Printer starts to print but the paper jams as if it shifts to one side.


Check your printer settings
(start>control panel>printer>right click this printer>printer preferences>paper quality>choose correct paper and size>click ok or done and close)
to be sure it is set for the same size and type of paper that you are using.

If it is set correctly, then there may be a tiny piece of paper lodged somewhere, or perhaps s small object such as a staple or paperclip.

Look in all areas that you possibly can . You could also try blowing the areas out with a little computer blower/cleaning tool. Be very careful if you do this/and remove the cartridges first. DO NOT USE HEAT.

Make sure that you secure the paper in the machine with the sizing mechanisms as well and that you fan the paper before you put it in. Place it neatly and snugly in the tray.

If you cannot get it to work, try opening up the printer paper jam door and pushing the printer roller up until it clicks. this will reset the printer and may release debris.

You can also try printing on smaller paper to see if you can get any paper through correctly and help clear a small jam. Again be sure to adjust your printer settings to the size you are using.

As a last resort, if nothing else works, perhaps the printer is stuck on an old paper setting. You can reset the printer by turning it off and unplugging it from the computer, waiting a few minutes and then plugging it back in and turning it on. give it plenty of time to go through its normal start up cycle before you try to print again.

Photo Paper keeps jamming


It's the top rollers, the paper is too slick to get through them. I'm using HP photo paper, in an HP printer. It needs to do a 180, but gets jammed right where it prints, so the paper never makes it to the ink. It's an engineering problem by HP. I suggest putting a rough surface on the top edge of the photo paper, something removable but rough enough for the printer to pull the photo paper through.

Copier keeps telling us there is paper jam, we have looked where screen shows jam and find nothing. We have taken out the paper tray, still don't find even a tiny scrap of paper anywhere.


There are several possibilities. After you inspect for the Jam and close the drawer, does the copier come to ready? Have you checked the behind the doors on the right side. If the copier comes to ready and you press the start button does the copier jam right away. If so check the dial on the paper drawer and be sure its set to the right size paper. If its not the copier will jam, right away. It is important with a Canon to check all areas and open both the paper drawer and the right side doors when checking for jam, if the right sequence is not followed in checking for jams the jam may not clear. If still Jammed you might take some canned air open the right side door and blow out the paper feed area, a sensor may be blocked or dusty. If all else fails turn the machine off and un-plug it from the wall, let it set a few minutes and plug it in and try it again.

HP PSC2355 printer pulls paper in crooked and then jams


One or more of the paper rollers needs cleaning or replacing. Or is not turning. Make sure you have the paper guide set not too tight or loose. Try with smaller paper eg A5 to see if it still twists, and put the paper in at various places (right to left) to see where and if it is jamming...

Error paper jam


You should go to the website of whoever manufactures your printer. They always have drivers for their printers that you should be able to download and install in just a few minutes.

If you're absolutely, 100% sure that there is no paper jam, I would recommend just unplugging and restarting the printer.

Also, it may read a paper jam if you insert too much paper at one time. If you have a lot of paper installed in the printer, try taking out all but 10 sheets, and retry printing. My printer has a tray that accepts 150 sheets, but it "jams" if you put even close to that many in.

You should make sure that you aren't putting the paper too far in as well. Try pulling it back a few millimeters, as it may read a jam if the paper is pushed into the printing area.

More than likely, there's paper stuck in there somewhere. It's causing something not to move right, and then the carriage is getting **** on whatever part isn't moving right.

Turn the printer off, and then lay it out on a table. Take whatever panels you can off, or open them. Go through the paper path like a fine-pick-comb and find that piece of paper.
