Probably the sensor. The one the paper goes under, lower left front of the machine. Had this loads of times.

Cheers

HP laserjet 1518

HP printers frequently time how long a page takes to run through the machine. If it is too slow, they signal a jam error.

Try cleaning all the rollers and pinch wheels etc within the laser.

002 forms jammed clear jam and reload. This is an error on a IBM 4232 printer

Sounds like you have a bad EOF sensor, its located in the front left corner when you open up the forms door in front. Its either black or blue. I carry them in stock but not sure how to get you my info so you can order. i guess email me if you need any other info on it.

Lexmark T644 Drawer 2 Missing error message but drawer 2 is in place. Drawer 2 always has problems pulling form form drawer when printing from drawer 2.

If job prints from the wrong tray or on the wrong paper or specialty media, this is an indication that the operator panel menu settings do not match the media loaded in the tray.

Make sure the Paper Size and Paper Type specified in the printer driver match the paper size and type in the tray.

For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support

Error 002 with Canon image class MF 8180 C

I usually open the back cover, top cover, cartridge cover and pull out the paper tray. Sometimes this clears the alarm, if this does not clear the alarm, I unplug the printer for a couple minutes. Between opening and closing the covers and unpluging the printer, the alarm goes away. Ray

Everytime I try to print to my PIXMA 9000 I get an error from the print spooler that the printer is not responding. THe print job starts to print, stalls after a few lines.

1. First, clean your printer. Get some spray-n-wipe cleaner and a clean cloth and clean the entire inside of the printer. Also ensure your paper isn't dirty. Now print a test page. Does the symptom persist?
2. Remove all jammed paper. Check the paper tray first. Look closely at the paper rollers nearest where the paper exits the printer; this is a common source of jams. If you’re trying to print labels, they will often jam just before exiting the printer.
3. Try to print a test page. Does the printer still jam? If you can find no source of the jamming, check the printer's message display window and refer to your user’s manual to look up the printer error code.

OR=

1. Check the printer and/or the software to see if "manual feed" is selected. If manual feed is selected, the printer may be looking for paper in another tray.
2. Reseat paper. Ensure printer is on-line. Check for paper jams or obstructions.
3. Likely suspect: paper-out sensor is damaged or broken. Consult a computer repair shop.

Error 3 paper Jam, but there is no paper jam

Don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Someone replied to my problem, i tried it and it fixed 1st time. Also seems to of worked for others
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through!! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now.
hope it works, let me know, Garty

Error light, can't find the problem

Hi, you should check the position of paper sensor flag, called "actuator" (part number 4139 3505 02). On the picture - part 15. The "paper jam" error message means also - "toner cartidge missing", "paper out" or "photoconductor missing" e8dd7eb.gif

Forms jam on IBM 4232

there are 2 paper sensors in the 4232 printer. the first is the most obvious and is a large black sensor found at the front of the printer and the paper is fed through it. the next sensor is on the printhead carriage assembly. its rather small and can be easy over seen. the sensor is just to the right of the printhead assembly. Clean both sensors and make sure they are properly locked into their sensor homes and this should take care of your problems. If not then it might be time to replace those sensors.
