Plastic paper jam

My dear grandson broke a cd case and a piece went in the paper feed. Since he didn't tell me till it wouldn't work I printed up some things but gee nothing came out just says paper jam. I can see the plastic piece but can't get a hold of it. How can I take the back off?

There's a panel in the rear that should just come off.

Paper jam 2 scx 4200Hello, my Samsung scx-4200 had a paper feed problem.When i try to print 1 page of something, the printer takes 1 paper, and then continues to take paper after the first and then there...


Try this, inside the printer, normally when you open the case/ink port, you see all the paper feeding gears and rollers. You really don't have to be a tech for this, just make sure there are not any flakes/small pieces of paper inside. This is when its good to have a can of compressed air, available at many electronic stores, and "blow" out the dust/paper. This helped with my printer. Also, make sure all the paper feed areas are lined up and working. Watch how far the paper feeds into the printer, then look what is at that point in the printer. Best Wishes, CD

Epson dfx9000 it gives me paper jam


Hi there,
My epson printer showed a paper jam light although no paper was visible.
I discovered my son had had a paper jammed and ripped the paper out and a tiny piece was jammed inside but was not visible easily.
***NO RESPONSIBILITY ACCEPTED FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE IF YOU USE THIS SOLUTION I USED TO FIX MY PRINTER*********
i cut an A4 sized square of cardboard from a cereal packet.
I inserted this instead of paper and attempted to use the feed paper button to eject the paper jam.
This did not initially work so as i kept pressing the paper feed button i forced the cardboard into the printer in the same direction that the paper feeds whilst printing.
The cardboard pushed the tiny piece of paper out.
Turn off the printer and then turn back on - you should find the printer now works.
I also found it helpful to clean the feed path and to try and keep dust from settling in the printer.
If it is in a dusty environment it helps to keep the printer covered when not in use - you can buy plastic covers for this or any large plastic will do but does not look as aesthetically pleasing.
Hope this has helped.

When I try to line tells me that the paper size mismatch and only takes a copy of the text


Have/had the same problem: Getting "paper size mismatch" on the C4280 status screen, after we got a paper jam. Every time we hit OK and put in paper, Message about "Now printing Alignment page", it feeds through quickly, with nothing printed on the page and reverts back to Paper size mismatch. Finally got rid of the error, not sure how, but now when I try to copy anything, we only get the lower right postion of the document that I'm trying to copy. Printing from the PC seems ok.
Powered off and back on, and it is back to P"now printing alignment page, quick feed through and "paper size mismatch" error. AND
When copying directly from the glass panel,it will only print a quarter of the page -however it prints and coorectly if we print directly from the computer.
The problem is the paper size sensors. Remove the plastic access panel that is for access to the rollers in the back and has 4 rollers on it. There are two papaer sensors attached to the printer circuit board (PCB). The control arm for the sensor is a small plastic piece that extends slightly into the paper path above the PCB. The plastic can be broken when you are removing a paper jam. I stuck a small piece of a match stick in the sensor to keep it open (as though a wider piece of paper was passing throught the printer). I can't switch to smaller card stock, etc, but who cares, it works.
The copying problem is caused because the C4280 will not scan correctly until after it does the alignment phase.

Paper jam, removed paper but still says jammed. Is there any way to tell where the jam is or reset machine ?


You should be able to have a piece of paper feed all the way without hanging.
Most of the times, you can see a small piece of paper stuck in a corner.
I have used a cut piece of plastic ( from a file folder ) and worked small pieces out that way.
Good luck, Happy Holiday's

Print fragmented documnts


Step1
If you're setting up the printer or changing the toner or ink cartridge for the first time, double-check the instructions to make sure that you installed the cartridge correctly and, for new printers, that you have removed all the pieces of cardboard or plastic packing material. 
Step
2
Check to see whether paper is feeding from the paper tray. If it's not leaving the tray at all, try feeding a page manually (if that's an option) or using a different paper tray. Sometimes a problem with the tray can be traced to a broken spring or a piece of plastic. 
Step
3
If paper is feeding from the tray but jamming in the printer, examine where the jam is occurring and then inspect the printer carefully to see if you can find what is causing the problem. A piece of paper, for instance, might be blocking the paper path. 
Step
4
If paper is feeding through the printer but coming out blank, check to see whether the printer is out of toner or ink. A defective toner or ink cartridge could be the problem.

Canon Pc720 Copier Paper Jam


The problem with the paper jam (but not feeding) is that a small
piece of plastic that holds one end of a spring the causes the feed
gears to push against the powered gear on the back side of the toner
cartridge breaks off. So the unit does not feed (no pickup rollers
etc) and it thinks there is a paper jam (no moving paper). Orienting
the front as the side you work at, the back being the back, the
feed being the side the paper goes into and the output being the
side the finished copy comes out, open the unit. Looking into it
from the output side almost to the input on the bottom notice the
small hairlike things sticking up. Move to the left (back of the
machine) and see a few white gears all hooked into this gray metal
housing that moves up and down about 1/2 inch (It pivots). At the
top input side of this metal you will see a part of the metal that
stick up and has a small slot in it. the spring used to hook onto
this and the other end hooked to a small piece of plastic down and
more to the input side a bit, onto the upper input side of the white
plastic part that houses a shaft to a roller (fat little spring
about 1 inch long). the plastic part breaks off and you usually
can't see that a part was even there. The spring will still be in
the area. If you are handy, you can figure out how to fix it. I got
a longer spring (same strength) bent the metal toward the back 1/4"
and ran the new spring from there to a 1/16 hole I drilled in the
plastic side next to the circuit board (down low and back). I shaped
the end of the spring (where I drilled)to keep it more inside and
not hit anything. Works fine.

'paper jam' error on canon pixma ip4300


Hi guys, I eventually found a solution to the problem for my printer. With the top cover open, I pushed a sheet of 120 micron thickness A4 clear plastic binding cover through the exit tray as far as it would go to rest against the bottom row of rollers. I switched the printer off then back on again and as the rollers lifted momentarily, I pushed the sheet of plastic as far up through the machine as I could before the rollers went down again - it went in a fair distance. The printer then ejected the plastic sheet. I then put the plastic sheet into the paper tray and tried to print a blank document page. The plastic fed through cleanly and my printer has been working since without any error messages. I hope this works for you.
