This seems to be fault in the transport of the paper in the rollers. So if you have used any adhesive sticker printing, it is possible that some glue has got clogged into the rollers. If not there can be some jammed paper in the rollers or the mechanism.
So start this work only if you are mechanically able with the right tools.
Remove the covers to get access to the mechanism . Remove the motor drive assembly , the fitting of the motor to the mechanism. Once this is removed the rollers can be turned manually so that you will be able to feed a paper to see the progress of the movement while studying if there is any obstruction or damage to the paper.
There is a in-detect sensor, usually an opto-coupler , make sure this is not clogged or dirty as this IR detection feeds the signal to the processor for starting the motor drive feed.
Reassemble but make sure the rollers are aligned to be in equal gap to feed the paper without a side pull. Now you must print and see if the fault has changed. If not repeat the above work to confirm the area of obstruction.

My Lexmark E330 printer is showing a paper jam, but no paper is jammed.


When you removed the jambed paper, did the paper come out in one piece, if not did all the pieces that was removed make up the entire sheet of paper?
Otherwise there may be still a small piece/s of paper still in the printer which is causing this error message.

My HP photosmart PSC2410 XI printer is showing "clear carriage jam"what should I do?


Points to there being paper stuck in the feed rollers, if you have cleared the jam, there may be a shred of paper still stuck, try to examine and remove.

If it IS fully clear and the indicatiors still show a paper jam, check the feed rollers are making contact with the paper, that the paper detector has not been bent upwards ( fooling the printer into thinking that there is still a jam).

Try rebooting the printer, if the problem still shows, this is a job for a qualfied technician

Printer screen showing paper jam. There is no paper jam.


Hi, this is a well worn path.

I know its a bore, but follow this, with your CSI Torch open up the rear access covers and look in carefully look. Satisfied replace cover, lift scanner lid, again using your CSI Torch check out the print area for a little peice of offending paper, if needs be try moving the rollers but gentle.

If no, left side hidden away, gentle move the print head carrige to the left there is every possibilty you will find a sodden inkedpeice causing the problem.

If still no paper, then as a lasrt resort reinstall the printer prog, it could be corrupt.

Did you have a paper jam that cased the original error message, if so then the odds are there is a little peice causing the problem. Good Luck.

Peter.

Paper is not jaam but printer showing paper jaam again & again.


Several things can cause a jam. I can suggest checking the paper path very well, especially if you have had a jam in the past, a little piece of paper there could be triggering a sensor and causing the message. Another thing might be rollers worn out or dirty. If the rollers rotate 3 times and no pick up happen it will show paper jam, try a humid tissue to clean it.

Hi
Check the following possibilities that may causing the error message.
1. Some times more paper may be taken in the paper feed area, check for any other paper jam in other area of the printer.
2. Remove all the printer drives, ports and uninstall the printer software and once again reinstall it by following steps given below
Start - Control Panel - Add and Remove Programs - Remove the program in the list called Tally Laser printer.
By now you have uninstall the software and now reinstall the software with the available cd given at the time of printer purchase and start printing.
Thank you
