Look for any debris, bits of paper, etc in the printer. You can try using a can of compressed air to blow out any debris inside. Should that fail, try a hard reset: Unplug printer from PC and power source, wait about 5 minutes and reconnect everything and see.

The paper jam error could be due to one of the following:

  • Check for paper in the paper tray
  • Check the size of the paper in the paper tray to see if it is the same as what the printer is set for.
  • Defective D-roller
  • Debris in the paper path
  • Gears not turning or broken gear
  • Defective paper tray
  • Broken input sensor flag
  • Defective input sensor board
  • Defective system cable 2
  • Defective system board
  • Exit Sensor flag (Fuser)
  • Exit Sensor board (Fuser)
  • System cable 1
If there is no bit of paper or debris stuck in the rollers, it would indicate something more serious, and in need of servicing. If your machine is under warranty, I suggest you take it back to the shop and get it replaced.
If your warranty has run out, then you'll either have to get it serviced or buy a new printer (whichever works out cheaper for you)

Hope that helps!

It's caused by chip that have bad connection to chip connector at carriage, or "crash program" at chip itself. Check for the connector, and try to use another chip.

Make sure the photo paper is not curling when it goes in. I had same problem before, with paper jam error even though the photo paper did not appear jammed. I noticed the photo paper was slightly curled, so I flattened it out and that solved my problem. Also, if you are loading multiple sheets at one time, try just loading one sheet and see if that fixes it.
