Paper jam


First, make sure there is not a paper jam. This printer can have a paper jam in many places and you need to remove any doors or covers to look for paper. If you are sure that there is not one, then it could be a faulty sensor. Not good news becasue it will probably be cheaper to buy a new one than get it fixed.

When powering up printer receive message "press power then clear paper jam" I cannot find any paper jammed in the printer


Power your printer off and unplug it. Try manually feeding a sheet of heavy weight paper (cardstock) through the paper path to help push out any torn scraps of paper left from a previous jam, or any staples or paper clips etc that may have fallen into the paper path.You may need to do this multiple times. You can also try blowing in canned air to remove and paper dust that might be laying on the sensors causing a false jam message. Good luck!

Paper feeds to the right and Jams


Sounds to me like there is something in the paper chanel, a staple, paper clip or something small enough to get in there. Have you tried turning the printer upside down and lightly tapping the side to see if anything falls out?

A940 doesn't feed paper correctly


My DELL A940 printer used to jam every time with the paper pulling to the right. 
Solution - there was a pen jammed in the mechanism ! 
I was about to trash the printer when I looked deep into the workings from above, holding the printer to the window to get bright sunlight into it. I could see a round ballpen laying in the groove at the bottom. 
Hooked the pen out and all is back to normal. 
This may not be your problem, but its worth a look.
