The sensor is stuck open or closed. It needs to move back and forth between the sensor. Check the paper path for the sensors.

Had the same issue with the "Paper Jam" light blinking... but no paper jam. Turned the printer off then back on and the light went out.

I am getting the paper jam light, I have looked everywhere and there is no paper jam. Is there another item that would cause the sensor to read jam. What can I do to fix?

I have a brother and have had paper jams I couldn't find before. Try pulling out the toner cartridge. It could be inside of that area where you can't see it from the regular openings.

My dell 1700 says that there is a paper jam but there is no paper jam visible

You must remove all drums & toner and open all doors and look with a flash light. steven 818-888-0006

Paper jam light is on with no sign of a jam printer wont print.

1-paper is most likely stuck in the fuser, (where it exits and gets hot) you will have to remove it
2-it would be better to clean the rollers w/ alcohol then inside out.

Paper Jam error

Try feeding paper from the front, if it works, your paper pickup rollers maybe having problems (dusty/worn-out).

Paper jam

There is a sensor in the back that lets the printer know the paper has exited the fuser. It is probably broken off if paper is getting stuck back there.

Also check for paper remnants that are jammed. This may require removal of the fuser.

Dell 1700n Laser Printer Jam trouble

If it?s always in the same spot then you can narrow your search for the problem. -Look where the leading edge of the paper is getting jammed up for an obstruction, especially if the paper is folded in an accordion fashion. Look closely, I?ve fixed many a paper jam by pulling out a corner of a page stuck in a recess. -If the paper path is clear then the next thing I would suspect is the paper you are using. -Try new paper that isn?t bowed, folded or curled. Before inserting into the paper try flex it back and forth along the width and length, then insert making sure to slide the two side guides and the back guide until they fit snugly against the stack of paper. -Other things to check are the rollers where the leading edge of the paper is getting stuck. Make sure they are clean. -Also make sure your toner cartridge is inserted into the printer correctly. If you have a spare try using that, sometimes cartridges can drag on the paper.

Dell 1700n Laser Printer paper jams

Some questions first: -Where in the paper path is it jamming? -Is it always in the same spot or does it vary? -Roughly how many pages have you printed with this printer? -Did anything lead up to this or has it progressively gotten worse?
