I would try first unplugging the printer, then taking the paper tray out, the toner cartridge out, open the back cover and inside the back cover near the power cord is a blue lever. Try pushing this down as you see if you can remove the jammed paper.

I have a Black & Decker sander, model # 7447 and am having problems changing the sand paper.


The 7447 does not have a release lever. To change the belt, you must release tension of the rollers by pushing the front roller straight back until you hear it click and lock in position to change paper. Remove old paper and replace with new paper. Make sure if new paper has directional arrows to install properly.
Now you must release the front roller to put tension on paper. To do this push the front roller from the side that has the adjustment screw. This will release the front roller and allow it to go back into position. Be careful as it pops back quickly and with some force.
Turn on sander and adjust centering of paper with adjustment screw found near the front and side of sander.

Printer sayes its jamed but no signs of being jamed


Could be a defective sensor. But before you jump to conslutions, check the following. remove the paper tray and look inside for paper. open all the covers, front and side. If you look in to the side cover you will see a rubber roller running on a silver roller. Turn the rubber roller with your finger and see if there isn't any paper stuck there, While you are at it also check on the top of the opening where the fuser is located for stuck paper ( Fuser is hot so be carefull) Close all the covers properly. If the problem is still there It might be a sensor and will have to be replaced. Let me know if you need any more help.

Paper jam on initial feed


It sounds to me like your pickup rollers are worn. You should order a new set and replace them. That should solve your paper jam issue.

Our copy machine keeps flashing E2. There is no paper inside the machine.


Remove the toner and drum cartridges. Using a flashlight, look inside the front of the printer. At the rear of the cavity there are two large rubber rollers. On the floor, about an inch to the right of the rightmost roller, there's a tiny black plastic feeler that's supposed to protrude from a slot in the floor and be pushed down by paper as it feeds through. Occasionally it sticks in the down position, causing the printer to think there's a paper jam. Running a finger over it usually unsticks it so it will pop up where it belongs. I usually flick it down a few more times to make sure it's free to pop pack up. I guess the spring tension, light by design, is sometimes not enought to overcome friction.

Dell 1600N printer paper jam


More than likely you need a new pick up roller. It is located at the top of the tray area in the printer. You will see a black rubber roller with white nylon clips on both sides. You can confirm if it is the problem by removing and washing it with soap and water, then clipping it back in and running a few copies.
