Printing...Jam at exit

Our new printer starting having paper jams everyday so I opened door A and was looking around and I saw that at the exit there is this little, long piece of plastic that is connected to a sensor inside. I accidentally broke it and was wondering where a good place to find replacement parts online. I've looked and couldn't really find anything. Any help is appreciated. Thank you

You might be able to super glue it back. But if not go to manufacturer website and look for support and possibly parts for sale.

How do i remove the cover on the exit rollers to remove a jam

To remove a paper jam from the exit rollers of a printer, you'll typically need to access the jammed area by opening the printer's covers. Keep in mind that the process can vary depending on the printer model and brand. Here are general steps you can follow to remove the cover and access the exit rollers:
  1. Power Off the Printer: Before attempting to remove any jams or open the printer covers, make sure to turn off the printer and unplug it from the power source to avoid any risk of electrical shock.
  2. Open the Printer's Top Cover: Most printers have a top cover that can be easily lifted to access the internal components. Look for a latch or release button on the printer's top cover and gently lift it up to open.
  3. Locate the Jammed Paper: Once the top cover is open, carefully inspect the printer's internal area, especially around the exit rollers, for any visible jammed paper. If you find the jammed paper, gently grasp it and pull it out in the direction of paper movement to avoid damaging the printer.
  4. Check the Rear Cover (if applicable): Some printers have a rear cover or panel that allows access to the exit rollers and other internal components. If your printer has a rear cover, you may need to open it to clear the jam completely.
  5. Remove Paper Trays (if necessary): If the jammed paper extends into the paper trays, you may need to remove the trays to access and remove the jam more effectively.
  6. Clear Paper Path: Ensure that all remnants of the jammed paper are cleared from the printer's paper path. Check for any small pieces of paper that may have torn during the jam and remove them as well.
  7. Close the Covers: After you have successfully removed the jam, close all the printer covers securely. Make sure they are properly latched to ensure the printer functions correctly.
  8. Power On the Printer: Plug the printer back into the power source and turn it on. Perform a test print to verify that the paper jam issue has been resolved.

Paper jam in exit area keeps coming up on the dell sreen

The paper jam in the exit tray indicates that there is some print media jammed near the paper output region. Removal of jammed paper is the solution to the issue. Following the steps mentioned below will resolve the issue:

1. Turn off the printer, and wait until the power supply is completely drained.

2. Open the paper tray, and examine it for any paper jam or leftover debris from torn paper.

3. Open the cartridge/toner access door, and look for any jam in the respective region.

4. Clear the jam, and reinstall the cartridge/toner. Restart the printer before trying to print from the printer.

5. Check for any paper jam in the back area of the printer by opening the back door.

Why does the printer keeps having a paper jam fault on final exit slot?

It sounds like the exit sensor is sticking, so the printer doesn't know the paper has exited & throws a jam.

Hi, my lexmark T640 is saying 202.06 paper jam, check rear door. i have opened it and there is no jam, there is no paper anywhere and have pulled all the trays out and there is no jam. what do you suggest?

This jam is refering to back door, jam in fuser (hot bit) Double check no paper is wraped around fuser rollers.

These machines have a fuser at rear if you look at he fuser from the back, on it you will see, two thick fuser rollers (ones rubber), paper runs threw these then it hits a little black switch (your machine thinks this switch is activated) and then a series(3,4) of small rubber exit rollers, this switch (between middle and left) can get damaged it also likely that a piece of paper is concertinaed in fuser.

My Samsung CLP 315w refuses to print a whole A4 page. Stops half way then message comes up paper jam but when I open back / front, paper not jammed and when I close it document continues printing then...

Hi,

most likly hood is your exit sensor is faulty. The printer work in this way. if it does not print out all the document. it will print again. that is why you kept getting this same issue after a jam open and close door it will print again.

replace the exit sensor it will help.

When printing paper continues to jam.

  1. Take out paper tray 1.
  2. Remove any jammed sheets of paper you find there.
  3. Once you have done this, reinstall the paper tray and try printing again.
    Note: You may receive a message informing you that another sheet of paper is jammed elsewhere in the printer. If so, please open the front door and remove the toner cartridge. Also open the rear door of the printer (and the duplex option if a duplex unit is installed). Remove any and all jammed sheets of paper you find. Then try printing again.
  4. If the printer jams again with a 241 Paper Jam error message, look to see if it has tried to feed a sheet of paper out of the tray.

Oki C9300 - paper keeps jamming in the 2 same places, reads either 383 paper jam or non paper sense error. All drums and tonners are new, paper is loaded.

your getting a 383 paper jam, find paper in two different places.
See if it's a duplex related problem. print single sided documents, if that works, try printing two sided documents (it'll be the duplexer) if it only fails while printing duplex.

Also, check the back door. Make sure the back exit tray is closed all the way.

You can also have a paper jam in the duplex unit (open the front door), the duplex unit slides out the front. You can easily remove the duplex unit and run the printer without it.
