    Theres one paper sensor in the SX engine thats part of the fuser. On the PCB at the left side of the fuser there's a slotted opto-switch with a lever that detects paper in the fuser. There's also a single transistor on PCB that buffers/amplifies the output from the opto-switch, Q332, I think. This sensor must change state one way (to indicate paper has got to the fuser) shortly after the registration clutch operates and then change state the other way when the paper has got out of the fuser......

Red light is constantly blinking and when try to print, there is always a paper jam


Every time there is paper jam, the printer knows the job is not completed and hence tries to re-print after the paper is removed and cover is shut.

Clear the print job from computer.
Power off the printer and Clear the paper jam (if any)
I would try to use different tray. The paper pickup roller in one path may be worn out.
eg Sheet feeder or multipurpose tray.
Load paper in new tray
Set the application to use new tray

Ensure you sue the right thickness (gsm) of the paper. Quality of paper is crucial. Too thin; too thick can affect functioning.

Why is there a paper jam from cartridge?


There could be a hard-to-find shred of paper stuck inside. You may have to use a strong light and even do partial disassembly to locate the source of the jam.

My canon MP287 cant print.black when photocopy. The paper also started to jam so it cant print. what will I do?


When there is a paper jamb make sure the whole piece of paper is removed because any tiny pieces of paper that are left behind will cause further paper jambs.
If the paper does not feed through the printer correctly then the rubber rollers are dirty/sticky. Clean the rollers with methylated spirits to stop the paper from sticking to the rollers.

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

Constant Paper jams on CLX-3175FN


The fact that there appears to be no actual jam tells me that it is not picking up paper out of the tray. Try some alcohol on the pickup rollers, rubbing well. If that helps, replace these rollers.

1)check properly if there is no paper jam, make sure all jams have been removed
it this doesn't work

2) Remove the paper in the paper tray and replace with papers tha do not have folded edges
Make sure you are not using a paper that cannot run smoothly through the photocopier (too light or too hard)

3) Also check if some papers are stucked under the paper tray.
