This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

Hp 4345 has error code 13.20.00 paper jam in tray 2 and also has a grinding noise by the fuser how can i fix it


The printer may need a "swing plate" replaced to solve the fuser noise. Remove the fuser and look at the black gear inside the printer on the left side. Do the teeth on that gear look worn ? If so that gear (swing plate) needs to be replaced. Its a hard job to do. Can you turn the fuser gears with it out of the machine without them skipping ? The tray 2 jam may just be worn rollers in tray 2 or a stuck sensor. Good luck !

HP LJ 4L paper jam light flashes indicating a peper jam after printer makes a grinding noise. What can be the problem?


You may be right about the worn gear as a factor but I used to have a LJ 4 and whenever it indicated a paper jam it was always right. In some cases, the jam was a tiny scrap of paper deep inside. It took a flashlight and examination of every bit of the paper path to find it

Error message with grinding noise as driver cycles


Make sure the little spring loaded side fingers that grab and hold the cart onto the printhead are not broken. With the unit off, slowly move the carriage all the way left then right to check for a good belt and free movement. Take the carts out and tilt the printer back and forth to see if something has broken off inside, check to make sure nothing has fallen into the paper rollers from behind.

I have a epson artisan 800 I'm tring to fax from the automatic feeder but it keeps making a grinding sound and then it says paper jam but paper never even went through


I took apart my artison 800 with 'paper jam' error and grinding noise. Sadly enough, it is the plastic gear attached to the stepper motor which is slipping and making the grinding noise. I tried to glue it and it worked once or twice and failed again. It is a design flaw and Epson should repair this for free if they are honest about this problem. Ir is not a user-caused problem.

Will not shut down/ paper constantly jams. makes grinding sound


I had a 7170 series that gave similar, not quite as bad as yours, problems. Lexmark is a good name quality all in one. But, I believe it's time to upgrade. These rollers and drums are very easily put out of sync. And from there on you'll have nothing but troubles. The scanner situation is probably forming a very light coat of rust on the out rail and causing it to hang up. I honestly wouldn't put much more money or stress(your own) into this machine. Thanks, Dana.

Brother MFC-9420CN Paper Jam Error message w/ loud grinding noiz


please try this

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. 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.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Major problems when trying to print, Jamming alot & grinding noise


If the paper is an accordion type jam, you should replace the 4 small rollers, the upper feed roller, the upper feed guide, and the lower rollers. all of these are listed on hp's part surfer website.
RF5-0425-040cn, RF5-0434-000cn, RF5-0432-000cn, and RF5-0438-000cn respectively. Basically, get a new exit output assembly part number RG5-0456-180cn.
Does this help?

Yes. There is some paper left in the very edge (mostly left hand side). Have a good look there by opening the scanner top.
