    our printer still says document jam even though we tried to open all covers and clear it with any paper.

    I have done both of the above and still get the message repeatedly. What next?

  • Anonymous May 09, 2009

    I have the same problem and there is no paper jammed in there. I can't get it to scan any new papers now, either.

You cannot clear this unless there is still a presence of paper inside the machine.

or you can open and close your machine once you are cleared of any paper jammed, be sure not to leave and removed all residual paper in the paper path, the tiny sensor would recognize any sort of this and thus make your machine unoperable.

If the message refers to the scanner, open the cover of the feeding unit on top of the printer and clean it with compressed air. Most probably an insect got stuck somewhere

An error is displayed that clear scanner jam.


Check the Paper Sensor on the ADF. If it is stuck, a Document Jam Error will occur because the scanner will attempt to feed documents when there are none. The sensor I'm speaking of is a black plastic lever that sits in a slot to the right of the feed roller. It should stick up through the slot (3/4 inch) and spring back if depressed and released.

It says there is a document jam and to clear scanner but there is not paper in the machine. What do I do?


This 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.
