SOURCE: Clear Paper Jam error -- but there is no paper jam!

Sometimes while clearing the jam (if there was one) you may leave a bit of paper left behind which obscures a sensor causing it to think there is paper still in the paper path, or sometimes even paper dust can do it. Try a bottle of compressed air and blow the path out very well. Get a bright light (good flashlight) and very throroughly eyeball the paper path for any "foreign" objects...

SOURCE: What do I do if there is no visable paper jam on the printer Canon MP 160 printer

The flashing code may be a sign that your printer needs servicing, it's most likely the mechanism that feeds the paper. If you tell me what printer it is maybe I can help you interpret the code.

Hope this helps

canon i960 -three flashing orange lights (paper jam error) but no paper is jammed. The print cartridge1.gif will not slide to center either-- I have tried to get the printer into service mode, but cannot get there because the orange lights never stop flashing.

Ok, the paper jam 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
First try a hard reset - unplug printer from power source, wait a minute and replug. If it still does not work, uninstall the driver, reboot PC and reinstall (or download latest version from lexmark.com.

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!

Why am i getting the error message * memory rx 2P Recording Paper Jam? I can t find a jam anywhere?


Delete the fax and check paper tray rollers are cleaned. May be missing feeding which mean roller can't grab the paper and machine is expecting the paper to be at a certain point and does not see (Though sensors though out the paper route thru the machine so it thinks there is a paper jam) Also mite want o clear the memory (SRAM/DRAM) will lose one touches so make sure you have list backup

Printer does not feed paper and display keeps saying paper jam


This is most likely cause by a paper jam in the printer. Simply open the printer up and remove and paper jams then reassemble the computer. I hope this helps and have a nice day!

Paper Jam light is on and there's no jam anywhere. What do you do?


A paper jam notification can be caused by two things. One a hard jam, paper stuck.

Two, If the paper does not reach a flag or sensor on time, the printer knows that a jam has occurred.

Most likely, you had a paper pick problem caused by dirty rollers or maybe the paper is held to tightly by the paper tray. Also a static charge on the paper can sometimes cause sheets of paper to stick together.

Sometimes you will find debris has fallen into the printer. Take off back to clean it out. Something as small as a staple can create this problem.

Paper jam check drawer two t640 printer


Hello there,

If you are getting "Paper Jam check drawer two message" I would suggest you to check for any paper stuck inside the paper drawer two. If you don't see any paper jammed inside drawer two, you might also want to check out if its is stuck anywhere in the paper path. Removing the paper jam should fix the issue. Try cleaning the pick rollers (the rollers which pick the paper) in drawer two. This should help fixing this issue.

Merry Christmas!
