Hi, the flashing error code that indicates a jammed printer is the digital-age equivalent of a flat tire. Sooner or later it happens to everyone, so you'd better know how to get things moving again if you want to finish your print job.

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.


Turn off the printer.

Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.


Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.


If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.


If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A). 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.


If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though.

Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.

If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.


Tips & Warnings


If you get toner or ink on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and then launder the clothing in cold water.

Watch out for loose toner or ink on jammed paper, and do your best to avoid spilling it on yourself or the printer. If a little bit of loose toner or ink gets in the printer, though, it should clear after a few sheets are printed.

Hope it helps.

My dell All-in-one keeps syaing it is jamed but there is no paper in. I have done everything that the web cite tells me too and it is still saying it is jamed.


Printers are a pain. Having said that, if there is a sensor claiming to have a paper jam, then it is one of 2 things: a piece of paper or debris that you dont see, or, a failed sensor. If you cannot clear the jam, you likely have a failed sensor. If you have a failed sensor, your easiest option is replace that printer. If you replace it with an identical model, you wont need to buy anything extra, you can use the same carts and plugs and discs as before. Check ebay or such places for your model. Someone may have one for you.

Paper keeps jaming when trying to print fax it


If the jam is consistent with exiting the drum, there's a chance the drum isn't secure and is the paper is getting caught on the exposed area of the drum. If this isn't the case, there may be paper caught in the feeder wheels.

My MFC 5890 cn Brothers printer paper keeps getting jamed and won


Hi there,

What kind of paper are you using?

Normal paper or Photo Glossy paper?

If you use Photo Glossy Paper, you have to put at least two sheets of paper. If you read the photo glossy paper instructions that came in the package you will see it.
The package brings one sheet more than mentioned because of this specification.
