    Was there a paper jam in the first place, which was cleared but the light has stayed on? Check that none of the paper sensors have been damaged/dislodged

Why does the data light blink then paper jam light goes on even with no paper in it


Most likely when you removed the paper jam a small piece of paper got jammed under one of the sensors. This is a very common problem. It is also possible depending on the model that you have dislodged one of the flags that activates sensors for paper travel. Check the back of the printer in the fuser area as these are the most commonly damaged sensors.

My lexmark E340 printer displays the message: "remove cartridge paper jam" continuously and not print more pages


There is probably a sensor that is being blocked by paper that you might not be able to see easily. Remove cartridge and check the inside of the printer with a flashlight. Please turn off printer before doing this.

Hi

Open the back and front door and see the properly a small piece of paper make a error of paper jam, after that move your cartridge panel by hand, and check the cartridge fix properly, if cartridge not fix properly fix the cartridge and try again to print.


Thanks

My Lexmark E330 printer is showing a paper jam, but no paper is jammed.


When you removed the jambed paper, did the paper come out in one piece, if not did all the pieces that was removed make up the entire sheet of paper?
Otherwise there may be still a small piece/s of paper still in the printer which is causing this error message.

does the exit switch stick up in the back of the fuser into the paper path? I've had to replace lots of the exit sensor flags because the top half was broken off while clearing a paper jam.

I have a lexmark 5470 there is paper jammed and I cannot get to the jam It is a all in one printer


  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.
