Hi J,
Should be easy to clear up this issue for you. Unplug the unit open your paper tray and remove all paper, If you have any paper roller access you can open that and look for jammed paper, Then open the cartridge area and look for paper jammed in the printer. If all is clear, plug it back in and you should be ready. Good luck to you and I hope we can FixYa fast. Good night.

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 Hi, My printer had a - 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..

    All you need to do is unplug the power adapter and make sure ther is no power in the printer., open the cover and then try to move the head to the extreme right or left by applying a bit force and that will help you to see if ther is any paper stuck underneath the heard or the shaft rod.

Hi Jemma,
If you could give the model and maufacturer of the printer we would be able to help you better.
The best you can do in the mean time is , unplug the printer, open the top cover,remove the cartridges. Turn it upside down, and shake it a bit. The chances are there could be a small piece paper stuck in the rollers.

Thanks
mandeep

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

Paper jam with it and theres a piece of paper stuck that i cant get out and its effin up me printing out school work and stuff


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

Paper feed problem


Hi


This is happening due to paper jam on the gear or roller of the paper feed mechanism. Check for any small bits of paper or sheet stuck. To check lift up the top plastic lid of the Canon printer. Check to see if a jammed sheet of paper is visible inside the printer. Remove the cartridges and check for any small paper bits stuck under the print head. Pull the paper out gently through the bottom end of the printer(if any). Close the top plastic lid. Power On the printer and check.

If it doesn't work then power off the printer, wait 10 seconds and power it back on. try once again to print. If it doesn't work then Open the Canon printer software. Click "Options" and then select the "Clean Print Heads" button.

Paper jam message brother MFC-440CN


Generally theres still a small piece stuck somewhere. Remove the back where the paper feeds through and check there. Then open the top so you can see the ink head and check around there. That should do it. The printer sometimes wont remove the jam until you open that top lid.
Also try switching it on and off again just to be sure.
If it's still there, the only other way is ripping it apart to find that pesky bit of paper still stuck.

PRINTER JAM ERROR


Paper sensors are pretty simple, in that they are used to sense if the paper has reached, or passed a specific position in the paper path. The sensors are typically small swinging arm like devices which when lifted, switch either on or off. Just check that the sensor arms are swinging freely, and not stuck in a open or closed position, which is what I suspect. If the paper pick-up does not even start to pick up the paper, then likely a paper sensor is stuck, or broken.

Paper jam


It's pretty rare to not be able to manually clear a paper jam. Occasionally, after you clear a jam, some paper gets stuck in the mechanism where your fingers can't reach. In that case, part of the printer mechanism needs to be taken apart to get to the jam. Like I said, it's pretty rare, but when it happens, your only option is to take the printer to a certified printer repair shop or back to the place where you bought it to get it worked on. Unless you know what you're doing, I wouldn't recommend using tools inside the printer yourself. You run the risk of damaging the mechanism and making your current problem worse.

The HP web site does publish a couple of solutions. Have a look at the information on the following two links and see if there's anything you may not have tried yet:

Clearing a Paper Jam

Clearing a Carriage Jam

Post back whether or not either of these links worked out for you. Good luck.

Hp 2355 all in one error message


reset to factory defaults, also check the whole printer for paper jams. A paper jam can often casue smaller pieces to get stuck in gears or rollers. The message about opening and closing the lid is how the printer knows you went in to check it and closeing it triggers it to try again. If thers still a jam it will keep giving the message. The fist jam was caused by something, check and make sure there isnt any pieces of plastic broken off inside. If it has a rear access panel, check there also.

Jam errors - but no paper anywhere...


look for a green tab , situated under the toner . you;ll find a metal plate with a green lever on the right side, lift that and look under.

also make sure you check in the back of the printer were the fuser is.
