Take it easy, use a forceps, or other kind of tweezer if necessary, needle nose pliers, trying to ease the tension among the rollers is not recommended.

Keeps saying paper jam,but no paper jam is inside

The jam indication is set because the sensor(s) detect one. This could be due to a buildup of paper dust, a small bit of a sheet that tore off and got lodged deep inside when removing a previous jam, or damage to the sensors if the jam was removed forcibly by pulling the sheets out from the wrong direction.

Paper jams too often and for no apparent reason. This time tore paper and therefore unable to unjam!

To clear the paper jams always follow the instructions from the manufacturer, here is the support page from Brother website.

Also, sometimes when I get paper torn inside, I use a pair of long-nose pliers to remove it, but be careful not to damage any parts inside the printer.

If the printer is jamming constantly then that means you have a hardware issue in there. Look carefully where is usually jamming and see if you have a clip that stops the paper or a roller that's not pulling the paper and try to fix it or replace the faulty part.

Hi, I had a piece of paper get really really jammed and then tore when I tried to pull it out from the back. (The trauma had actually torn it already.) Now the printer makes a funny noise like something...

It is possible that there is still something stuck. From your disciption of what happen it is more likely the sensor have gotten messed up and there's not much you can do. If you are adventures you can try to tear into the printer and see if the sensor has gotten bent or shifted out of place. If not sorry better to just get new printer.

Paper Jammed

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

How do i reset a lexmark c534n? It won't let me print because it says there is a paper jam, but there isn't any paper in the machine

There might still be paper in the machine.
Or perhaps a small torn off chip of paper caught on a sensor somewhere.
If you recently had a paper jam, make sure you cleared it properly, and did not leave any bit behind, especially if thpaper tore as you removed it.
Check all doors and remove the toner cartridge to look underneath it.

Good Luck

Paper jamed


Thanks for using FixYa. Perform the steps below in order to solve this incidence:
  1. Disconnect the power cord or power supply adaptor from the rear of the HP All-in-One product.
  2. Remove the paper pack remaining in the input tray.
WARNING - Do not try to remove the jammed paper sheet yet. Trying to clear a paper jam from the front of the device can damage the print mechanism. Always clear paper jams through the rear access door.
  1. Open the rear access door or the two-sided printing accessory.
  2. Gently pull the jammed paper sheet out of the rollers.
  3. If the paper tore when it was being removed from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the device. If not all the pieces of paper are removed from the device, paper jams are likely to occur again later.
  4. Replace the rear access door or the two-sided printing accessory.
  5. Restart the printer to continue the current job.

.Torn paper jammed in the printer. I cannot see the torn bits.


Check on the very left hand side of the printer if you can see specks of paper inside, you can open up the printer cover to be able to see or locate where the specks of paper if there is any. make sure as well that the tray for the cd is properly push in or not open, chances if all fails is your paper sensor is damaged, call epson for replacement if under warranty. If not have it serviced.

Hope this helps
