Fix repeated paper jams on Lexmark 901 Pro


If you are getting a jam and there is no paper visible then a likely cause is a false jam that is caused when the paper is not picked up from the tray at the start of printing. Send a print job and listen closely. If you can hear the pickup rollers turning but no paper is being pulled into the printer then either the rollers are dirty or are worn and need to be replaced. Trying printing from a different tray or the manual feed tray to eliminate a fault with a different component on the printer.

My Canon Pixma MP600R insists that paper is jamed in machine, despite the fact that jam has been cleared and paper is being ejected when machine is switched on


The simplest thing would be to try unplugging the printer from the power source. Let it rest for 5 - 10 minutes then plug back in to the power supply and see if that resolves the problem.

If not you are going to need to do a thorugh inspection to verify that all paper remnants have been removed.

The following is for the MP600:

Issue: ERROR LCD: The paper is jammed. Clear the paper and press [OK].

  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Remove paper from the ASF.

  3. Gently pull the jammed paper out.

    Note:
    Be careful not to touch the components inside the printer.


  5. Turn on the printer and confirm that the Alarm light is off.
    (If the jammed paper remains in the printer, the paper may be automatically ejected.)

Fixing a printer paper jam
When working with any printer it's inevitable that you'll encounter a paper jam. Below are the steps you'll want to follow when this occurs.

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Inspect the location or tray the printed paper ejects to. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
  3. Remove all paper trays and any paper that may be stuck between the tray and the printer. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
  4. 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.*
  5. Turn the printer back on. If you continue to receive a printer jam error try repeating the above steps again. If issue still persist and you see no paper that is stuck in the printer it's likely your printer is experiencing another hardware issues and we suggest contacting the printer manufacturer for additional assistance and/or repair.

* To manually remove paper pull on the paper with both hands being careful not to tear the paper while pulling it. If you're unable to get to an edge of the paper that allows you to pull it you may need to manually rotate the gears that feed the paper through the printer.

E3 on LED paperwill not feed


Hello,

What you want to do is remove all paper, the prepare to run a print test page or print a blank sheet from some program, any program. Just be ready to do this.

Now, find a magazine cover or index card stock, something firm. Cut this magazine cover to the same width as regular paper 8 1/2 in the US or A4 in Eurpoe.

Now, when you start the print job, push the magazine cover or index stock through while its printing. Apply pressure it the key, to getting the thicker paper through.

This will clear the sensors in the printer and remove the error message.

Why did this happen? In the printer, there are numerous sensors to identify jammed paper. This can happen for the strangest reasons. By pushing thicker paper through while feeding paper by running a print job, the thicker paper forces the sensors back to their original position.

Regards,
Worldvet

CLEAR PAPER JAM STAYES ON I CANT SEE ANYTHING


This is a notorious problem of the HP 7000 OfficeJet series, the last place we often look are the actual gears which feed the paper.

If you can't or wont' return the printer to the dealer or service center, then be prepared to follow the paper feed and using a pair of needle nose pliers, see how easily every feed roller turns by using the pliers and gripping the rubber wheels and rotating them in the direction of the paper feed

Any of the rollers that turn reluctantly or require excessive force have likely become jammed with paper shards in their gears and using a flashlight, look for any slivers or pieces of paper in the gear teeth.

Since the HP's are underpowered, all it takes is a paper sliver barely thicker than a few strands of hair to foul up the mechanism which appears to be as large as jammed **** to the printer sensors which is why you're recieving the Paper Jam warning despite the fact you've cleaned very visible sheet from the device.

Use any sharp instrument to clean those shards from the gears and close the lids to see if your Paper Jam errors have been cleared.

My company has hundreds of satellite offices and this is the most common issue since a paper jam is hard to clear in these devices, people often have to just rip the paper out backwards and it those "shrapnels of paper" that end up fouling the mechanisms.

An example of how to clear these gears is at an Amazon product review found here:
