If the jam is at the registration roller and appears to be folded, or a "Z" fold, the machine needs a new paper feed clutch and duplex cluch installed.
This is noticable when there is a squelching noise when paper feeds.
Other times the registration clutch is not working.
The feed roll itself can cause these problems, late feeding, but the paper feed modual is most the problem on this type of model.
Other known problmes is the paper tray itself. Sometimes paper feeds out of the tray, and the edges of the paper will actually create paper cuts in the paper tray. The paper glided through these cuts and can get stuck in them causing paper jams.
A Xerox service call may be required to repair this type of problem.

MESSAGE : RECORDING PAPER JAM


Dear
The paper jam is a common problem, you need not to replace to ink cart.
Check the plain paper inserted properly or there is no paper inside, Put power OFF and ON. Also some model needs to press OK or START key to remove the paper jam message after removing the jammed paper.

Thanks.

Work Center Pro 575 always gets paper jams


If a document jam occurs during a transmission, the message "DOCUMENT JAM" is displayed. If this occurs, follow the procedure below. It is recommended that a duplicate from a copier, of the jammed document be used to reduce the chance of a jam when resending the document.
See Chapter 3, "Loading Documents" for document specifications and recommendations which may help avoid paper jams.
Note: The power can be left ON when clearing a paper jam.
Typical Causes of Document Jams
Recommended Procedure
The document is fed at an angle.
Adjust the Document Guides to the edges of the
document.
The document paper is too thin or too thick.
Make a duplicate using a copier and use the copy
as the sending document.
Document has tape or pieces of paper taped to it.
Remove the tape or make a duplicate using a copier and use the copy as the sending document.
The Control Panel Cover is not fully closed.
Close the Control Panel Cover fully.
The document is stapled. Remove the staple(s), or make a duplicate using a copier and use the copy as the sending document.
Basic Troubleshooting
1. Remove all documents from the Document Support.
2. Open the Control Panel Cover.
3. Remove the document jam. Remove any pieces of paper, paper clips, or staples that may have caused the jam.
4. Close the Control Panel Cover.
5. Verify the display has returned to the Standby Mode.

Blank page when I copy or print reports


Re check all the connections. When taking off the paper feed assay, other parts and plug and jack connections were needed to be taken off first.
Make sure the drum seats in its correct position, silver grounds are not bent.
The copy cartridge and Dev housing are not connecting very good somewhere.
Make sure the machine is unplugged.
Try running copies.

PAPER JAM


try this
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. 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.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Does it say clear jam immediatly or does it start to run then declare a jam?
If it starts then tells you to clear a jam and no paper is in the machine, your feed rollers are shot. Smooth like trying to drive a car on ice.
If it says that all the time, no attempt to feed then you have a sensor either dirty, knocked out of place or something stuck on a sensor.
Either in the paper path or in the scanner.

It Is a sensor that you should clean or re-locate. Try searching on sides of the roll or near the place where it shows you or tell you about the paper Jam.
