What make and model do you have? I have experienced (and fixed) similar trouble with Lexmark.

    What I have found on the Lexmark is there is a small Mylar timing strip that the carriage uses for tracking its location.



    This strip is usually behind the carriage, running left to right. Sometimes the strip pops out of the groove on the printhead, other times it can become disconnected when removing a jam. It is secured on one side with a loop and should have a spring for tension on the other.



    It is very small and hard to see.If you find it, center the carriage and try gently lifting up and allowing the strip to rest naturally in the sensor (groove).

My Brother HL 5250DN printer has started making a loud clicking sound when it tries to feed paper for printing. It then stops and the paper light starts flashing.


Clear the jammed paper as follows.
Observe Cautions signs in printer.
Always remove all paper from the paper tray and straighten the stack when you add new paper. This helps prevent multiple sheets of paper from feeding through the printer at one time and prevents paper jams.
1. Press the cover release button and then open the front cover.
2. Slowly take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly. The jammed paper will be pulled out with the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
3. Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer.
4. Close the front cover.
5. Pull the jammed paper up and out of the printer.
6. Open the front cover again.
7. Open the back cover.
8. Pull the tabs at the left and right hand sides toward you to open the fuser cover (1).
9. Using both hands, gently pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit.
10. Close the back cover.
11. Pull the duplex tray completely out of the printer.
12. Pull the the jammed paper out of the printer or the duplex tray. Put the duplex tray back in the printer.
13. Push down the blue lock lever and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. Clear the jammed paper if there is any inside the drum unit.
14. Put the toner cartridge back into the drum unit until you hear it lock into place. If you put the cartridge in properly, the blue lock lever will lift automatically.
15. Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in the printer.
16. Put the paper tray firmly back in the printer.
17. Close the front cover.
18. Make sure that the Paper LED is now off and the printer is ready.
After clearing paper jam if noise persist printer may need a Repair Tech and parts replacement for broken or wore parts.

PAPER LIGHT BLINKS RED


Lots of potentials here.
The corona wire may have become dirty in the jam. That will cause it. Both the front and back door have to be shut. See to it that their respective switches are activated when they are shut. Read your owners manual. It is full of suggestions for this issue.

Paper jam


Some of the Ink Jets have a cover in the back of the printer that you have to turn a lock to remove and you could have some paper stuck back there.

Error Message - Paper Jam


I had a paper jam. I removed the offending sheet of paper which unfortunately tore into 4 pieces as it came out. Upon piecing the sheet of paper back together - there is a small piece missing. I've checked the printer thoroughly - nothing can be found!

Will not print / cartridges will not move back and forth


I had this happen to me the other night and I had to restart the printer to get the print job out of the que. You could try that.

While it's restarting, unplug the power cord and the usb cable. That should reset it.

My brother laser printer HL-5050's paper light is flashing, which usually indicates a paper jam. i've checked 5 times and there is no paper jam. have shut off printer and restarted 3x. when i try to print,...


Hi 
I've nearly the same problem....My printer(HL5050)  takes only a little bit of the sheet, then paper led flashes.
I've found a block into the paper feeder. This printer is impossible to disassemble.!!...even if I've the service manual, because for taking away a simple pressed paper block , it's necessary disassembling  almost all the machine!!! No comment 
So I'd an idea:
I've sprayed into the paper feeder a great quantity of a cleaning spray (without oil) , in order to get the paper block wet, then , by means a school-book plastic cover, used like a paper sheet,  and  manually acting on the gear, I've pulled this plastic sheet up and down several time (spraying in the same time)in order to  remove these hard paper blocks. Now my feeder seems free. Tomorrow I'll try to test it.....
Regards

PS To do this it's necessary the only removal of left cover, in order to reach the gear which allows the paper to advance manually.
