I turned mine upside down and there was a key that fell inside stuck there.
It works fine now!
It is easy for stuff to fall off the printer top into the back paper loading area.

I remove everything and clean it but still say paper jam2 what is the 2 stand for


I switched on and off the machine. While the machine is running and the rollers are turning. I put a photo paper (which is thicker than normally paper on the manul feed section and make sure is far deep enough for the machine to run the paper in. Once the photo papert come out from the machine. The false paper jam 2 signal is re-set. I notice that there is a tiny black spot on the my blank photo paper. I guess, the black spot on the sensor created the false sensor effect as a paper there. Once the black spot was clear by the photo paper. It removed the false sensor and the machine back to normal state. I am very happy with the outcome.

I have a HP LaserJet 1312nfi that is giving me a FALSE paper jam message. I repeat - FALSE PAPER JAM IN BACK DOOR. False false false. I have uninstalled it on my computer and nothing. I have opened it...


Hello Chris! Welcome to FixYa!

If you are facing False Paper Jam error in your HP Laser Jet 1312nfi but If you cant see any obvious paper jams, try to look closely into the rollers or the inside. There could be some tiny paper shreds stuck within those rollers. Or there could be a tiny piece of paper blocking the printer's sensor and thus giving you a false paper jam error.
The rollers should be cleaned if the paper fails to feed smoothly into the unit. All document and media rollers should be cleaned using a lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water.

1. Turn Off the printer and unplugged power before cleaning the rollers. This will allow the rollers to be turned by hand in most cases.
2. Remove the rear access door to access the rollers. Clean any dust and debris from the rollers.
3. Open the back of the printer and check metal paper rollers (not the rubber rollers) in the interior of the printer. They should be clean and move freely. If these are not bright and shinny or have buildup on them, they should be cleaned. Also clean any dust and debris off of the rubber rollers.
4. Close the back cover and reattach the rear access door.
5. Plug the power cord back in and power the unit up. It should reinitialize for about 20 seconds.
6. Print another extended self-test page.
After following these steps carefully, False Error message will be disappeared.
I hope this solution helps you
Let me know if you have any confusion in your mind.


Sir, Your Rating as FIVE Stars for this solution and words of appreciation will be esteemed

Thank You for taking my service

Paper not going through and when it does it jams


Clean the entire printer of old paper, and bits and paper. You will be surprised how often a little piece of paper is stuck somewhere. Buy a bright LED torch, keep by printer ,so can check carefully.
Try a thinner paper, 70gsm. Thicker paper jams more often.
Buy fresh pack of paper. Paper gets wet. Old paper jams.
If older printer then the rollers might be dirty and sticky. Can use a cotton bud to wash with alcohol. Otherwise put your paper in a closed container and keep it dry. If damp/humid , then the paper gets sticky.
I am a finance whistleblower and have used some 10 printers and 1 10,000$ photocopier, all worn out. Sometimes just got to go buy a printer.
Buy the most cheapest printer. When it dies, go buy another. That way never loose money on big scan/print/fax dog printers. Use a local fax company and photocopy company - let them wear out their printers.
God bless John

While printing 2 or 3 lines it shows paper jam message. Can't print even a page!!!


make sure you don't have any small pieces of paper stuck in the printer s.gif s.gif s.gif
Paper jams can be real or false. The unit may report a paper jam when there is not any jammed paper, however, the solution to a real paper jam or a false paper jam is the same. WARNING: Jammed paper must be removed using the rear access door and the power cord must be disconnected or a carriage jam or mechanical damage may occur. Do not remove jammed paper from the front of the unit.
  1. Turn off the HP product and turn it so the back of the unit faces you.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the all-in-one. The power cord must be disconnected to allow the paper feed rollers to turn freely.
  3. Locate and open the rear access door by pressing in on the left side tab and then pulling the door toward you. Figure 1: Removing the rear access door c00108288.jpg Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door.
  4. Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door. Click How to buy on this page to order replacement parts.
  5. From the rear access door opening, remove the jammed paper.
  6. Remove the remaining paper from the paper supply tray. Discard any paper that is damaged or crumpled and then re-stack and reload the paper into the paper supply tray.
  7. Reinstall the rear access door.
  8. Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on. If a carriage stall occurs after clearing the paper jam, resolve the carriage stall.

Paper jam light will not go off and there is not paper jam in the unit.


Over time paper dust and toner residue can build up around the drum and paper feeder rollers. Open your printer and remove the toner cartridge and Drum unit. Use a soft brush to clean any residue. Replace toner cartridge and drum unit.
A tiny bit of paper can cause the paper jam light to stay lit.

Try changing the quality of your paper.

Roughen up the rollere guides a little to you get better grip. Clean rollers with alcohol and use a green scrub mit to lightly rub the surface of the guide reels.

I print a publication so I print many copies within a few days. It says Paper Jam in tray area but I can see no paper, it makes a noise and never feeds the paper.


Some Laser printers require the paper to be loaded out of the **** on one side to work well. Flip your paper **** over and try loading the paper upside down. Sounds funny but may fix your issue. Also look at the type of paper you are using your printer may need a thicker or thinner paper (look at the manual). Clean the pickup rollers!

False paper jam


possible solution - I had a similar printer that had small stones that fell into the paper slot at the back and jammed the mechanism. a shelf behind the printer had these little rocks and a child dropped them into the printer. I had to take it all apart, but it worked after that

Printer keeps jamming paper


without some information about the kind of printer and the weight/thickness of the paper, try to supply more information in a comment if you can, this is a generic answer.
many printers have a paper thickness adjustment that helps ensure that only one sheet is picked up at a time, and that the sheet feeds accurately,
if two or more sheets are picked up there are jams as multiple sheets do not feed well, and may not even get out of the paper tray. If the printer is set for a thicker paper, the lead edge of thinner sheets may miss its aimed path and wrap around guides or rollers, jamming.
The makers web page, or the user guide if you still have it, often have FAQ on paper jams,

Paper jam


First, check the entire paper path for anything that would impede paper movement: a small piece of paper, staple, or even a broken piece of plastic from inside the printer itself. The rollers may have become either "slick" due to much use, or they can get covered with dust/paper dust. Cleaning them can help. I'm told rubbing alcohol tends to deteriorate them- perhaps using a diluted window cleaner. There are products sold for this- maybe do a google search on what to use.
