This usually means that no paper has been fed from the paper cassette or the machine was turned off when you had a paper jam. Remove the paper cassette from the machine and ensure that nothing is stopping the paper from feeding.Also look into where the machine locates in the copier to ensure that no paper is jammed behind the cassette. The paper feed rollers may need cleaning or replacing.
When the MISFEED Indicator is blinking you should look closer at the paper feed area (see page 66 of the PDF). You may need to remove the paper tray to find any remnants of paper. If after closing the side cover the light does not stop blinking you will need to follow through as per the illustrated instructions.
Remember after removing jammed paper, you need to press the clear key to clear the MISFEED error.
If after doing all this the error signal has not cleared, power down the printer; unplug from the power supply; let rest 5 - 10 minutes; plug back i to power supply; turn printer on and see if thisresolves issue.
possibility 1... the paperguides in the trays are loose... if this happens paper flops every way in the machine... (fix is simple... pull the guides together around the paper... and if they won't stay then find a way to make them stay...)
possibility 2... the feed rollers have lost their stickiness so paper slips instead of gets grabbed... ( get some rubbing (isopropyl alcohol) and a clean rag and clean them)
possibility 3... you have extremely humid or poor quality paper and it keeps jamming because it either has too many creases and holes and whatever else or it just plain sticks together and is too soft due to humidity... (store your paper in a warmer location and your copier as well)
have you tried turning of the power and unplugging ALL cables including telephone line . leave for 1 min then recconnect and try again. Or could be a very small piece of paper as a little near the sensor will confusew the machine
We lease the copier and have a maintenance contract. We call for a technician to come out and fix the problem. I was trying to find out if there was something preventive that we could do to avoid the misfeeds. For instance, maybe a particular type of paper (brand) is recommended. We use different brands but all are 20lb bond (some recycled, some not). We attempt to keep the paper from absorbing humidity, keeping it in its wrapper until use. Often I think it is that the sensors in the copier get "dusty" and then don't function properly. The user cannot get to these sensors -- that takes a technician.
Make sure that there isn't any little piece of paper caught near a sensor. Often when a jam is removed, the operator rips the paper, leaving some if it there inside. If it's near a sensor, you'll get a constant jam indication. Use a flashlight to check for it.
hi im jules_09.have you check the inside of the copier?open the front
door then see if there a paper in the transfer the transfer is in front
of you if the door is open.the check the fusing unit many paper jams
happen in the fusing unit.then at the paper tray if you cannot locate
the paper jam inside the machine look at the paper tray from 1 to
3.then at the side most copier have opening at the side look for the
door so you can see if theres any paper stock
In most cases where the machine says there is a jam, and there is no paper in the paper path, it's because the paper never got out of the paper drawer and didn't reach the 1st jam sensor. If you can open the machine and it resets, then chances are the paper feed roller is either slipping or in some cases not turning at all. If you can't clear the jam by turning off the machine, and back on, then you have a bad jam setect sensor or perhaps a small piece of paper lodged on the jam sensor. This will take some additional troubleshooting on your part. Need to know if the jam indicator goes away when you restart the machine. Let me know and I'll try to guide you from that point.
