This is caused by the sensor that was damaged due to jammed paper.
instead of removing paper jammed inside you must take extra precaution from removing paper jammed inside.

How to clear a fake paper jam in oki B6250 printer


The usual cause of "fake" paper jams is a prior "real" paper jam. One of two things occurs.

  1. A small bit of paper tears off the jammed stock and hides from view, but keeps the printer jammed. These can be hard to find and remove, depending upon where they are.
  2. In the process of yanking the jammed paper out of the unit, the sensor(s) become damaged or misaligned and give false jam indications. This usually needs repair or replacement.

Why do i have a false jam reading?


I understand that you're receiving what you believe to be a 'false' paper jam on your HP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One Printer. I would like to work with you today with resolving this issue. Paper jams can be real or false. The product might report a paper jam even when there is no jammed paper. A false paper jam may also be the result of having a bad paper jam at a point in time and that bad jam causing a hardware issue to the paper sensor or rollers. I am going to provide you with some additional troubleshooting steps that apply to both real and false paper jams. You did state that you already checked the paper pathway inside the printer and failed to find any evidence of paper being stuck, but please run the step-by-step troubleshooting below, even if you have already run some of the steps.

Here are the steps for clearing the path:

Hp Officejet L7480 false paper jam message. Resetting the printer has no effect.


Hp paper jam 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.

Sharp al 1655 false paper jam message,


Check that the paper feed roller is clean as if the roller slips it causes a late paper pickup jam but nothing will be in there also maybe a small torn piece in the machine some where. and check the fuser make sure that is it not stuck in there if no to all these then is will need a control board.

Thanks J
