Where you duplexing or making 2 sided copies? If so, there is probably another piece of paper in there.

I have a Toshiba estudio162 and its saying clear paper jam. I opened the tray, removed the crumbled paper and closed it.Its still saying Clear Paper Jam. How do i make the red light stop flashing?


The sensor acturator that the paper hits might be broken or out of place so the copier thinks there is paper there when there is not or there might be a small piece of paper that stuck in there holding the sensor acturator up.

Sx218,keeps sayin paper jam when there isnt any paper jammed


It sounds like a sensor is stuck. Sometimes a very tiny piece of paper is stuck near the sensr. I use a flash light to check. Have you tried turning off and on? Sometimes that will clear the error message.

ESP5200printer,new,paper jam message


Hi slicknick58,

Paper jam message occurs when there are stuck papers inside the printer. There are several ways on how to correct this problem, either you remove the visible stuck paper manually or replace the toner or ink cartridge. Below are the steps you'll want to follow when this problem still occurs.

1. Turn off the printer. Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam.

2. Inspect the location or tray the printed paper ejects to. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.

3. Open the printer door that allows you access to the printer ink cartridges or toner and look for any stuck paper. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.

4. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.

5. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.

6. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper . Don't force anything.

7. Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.

8. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path and try repeating the above steps again.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Printer keeps saying i got a jammed paper there is no jammed paper


There are many places in a printer where a small piece of paper can get stuck. It's not always a sheet of paper. Open all the access panels and check the roller track for pieces of paper. If it is clear, unplug the printer for a few seconds and the plug it back in. This should clear the problem if it was in error. Also check the paper feed for too many sheets stuck together jamming the feed. Before loading paper always "fan" the paper first to avoid sheets being stuck together.

If paper is jammed, a Paper jam message will appear on the control panel display.

Follow these steps to clear the jam:

  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out of the output tray or sheet feeder.

  2. If the paper is stuck inside, turn off the Epson Stylus CX.

  3. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the Epson Stylus CX back on.

    alert_note.gif Note: Be sure to check the far left of the carriage area when checking for jammed paper. Paper that is jammed there may be hidden from view.
If paper jams inside the Automatic Document Feeder, clear the jam as follows:

  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover and remove any jammed paper.

  2. If necessary, lift the document cover and remove any paper that has jammed inside.

It thinks it is jammed when it is not


there has to be a tiny piece of paper stuck in there some where. It can be a very small piece. Check again, use a flash light if you have to, to get a really good view.

Paper Jam


Hi,

You need to try clearing the paper using a airblower if you do not have a air blower try with a vacuum cleaner, surely it cleans up. Unless until you remove the paper it shows the msg.

If you think you have no other option and you tried everything its better to call some service guy and get it done.

Regards

Hi, I get the jam light and or paper light and can't print


You may have a little piece of dust or piece of paper stuck inside. Remove the trays open all the panels and look for anything stuck. It doesn't take more than a little sliver of paper to do this. You can use a brush and the vacuum cleaner hose to dust out the inside and sometimes you will get the culprit without seeing it.

As well you can have too much paper in the trays. Try taking everything out and then put say 10-20 sheets in but no more and see if that clears it.

You can also have a hardware problem. Sometimes the paper sensors fail or are damaged by inserting the tray too briskly. If you can't get the jam to clear then the sensor could be the cause. If this seems to be it, first check your warranty. If it's covered take it in. If not check replacement cost as the sensor replacement and/or labor may cost more than a new replacement printer.

Message reads: the paper is jammed clear the paper and press OK


Hi,
Even if a small piece of paper stuck inside the printer you ll get this msg.  So what you have to do is if you have a Air blower or vaccum cleaner blow air inside the printer,  If any piece of paper is stuck inside it will come out and you won't get that msg again.  Try this and sure it will work...!
