Most likely a bad or obstructed sensor. Use compressed air to blow around the top and back of the printer removing heavy paper dust and look under the pickup rollers for small pieces of ripped paper. If the sensor is bad, contact service and support.

Printer says Paper Jam but it is not


  1. Remove the paper from the paper tray.
  2. Press the Power button and then wait for the jam to clear.
    • If the paper jam cleared, try the print job again.
    • If the paper jam is not resolved, continue.
  3. Remove the rear access door. Press the handle to the right, and then pull out the door.
  4. Remove any paper that is inside the printer by pulling the paper out from the back of the printer.
  5. Replace the rear access door.
  6. If the paper jam cannot be removed from the back of the printer, raise the product cover, carefully remove the jam from the front of the product, and then lower the cover.
  7. Re-load the paper in the In tray. Fanning the paper makes sure that the pages are not stuck together.
  8. Press the Power button ( ) to turn on the product.
  9. Open the document in the application in which it was created.
  10. Click File, Print, Properties, Printing Preferences click Paper/Quality tab.
  11. Verify that the type of paper specified in the Type is text box matches the type of paper being used. A paper jam might result if photo paper is specified in the Printer Properties dialog box, but plain paper is loaded in the printer.
  12. Click OK to try job again.

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...
