    A piece of paper is jamed at the end of printer and I can not move it.

    I have the exact same problem. The printer took in a piece of paper just slightly wider than 8x12" and it got jammed around the roller in the back (the fuser). I've tried pulling it out, but that just rips the paper and at least 75% of the page is still in there, invisible from all the other openings of the printer.

    How much do you think it will it cost me to get this fixed? Yikes.

If you cant get paper out from inside after removing cartridge then there is No easy fix, and the roller at rear is called a fuser, these parts dont come out easy,machine will need all covers removed, plugs disconnected and brackets removed, gears pulled off and fuser removed, maybe replaced if there is a reason why it wrapped around roller

There is a paper jam in my hp laserjet 3055 printer and I don't know where is the door of this printer to remove the anybody please help me out.

Remove the cartridge from the printer and look for the obstructing paper especially in the arms of the paper detector switches (2 nos. in the path). If you cant see any, the paper has most likely wrapped around the pressure roller / tafflon sleeve in the fuser. Carefully remove the plate just above the cartridge labelled "Caution Hot - Avoid Contact" (after the printer has been in power OFF mode and has cooled down) by removing the two screws on either side. See if the paper has wrapped around the rollers - remove and fit back the plate. In case of repeating problem look for damages to pressure roller and the tefflon sleeve. Have the fuser serviced in that case.

You can attempt to remove the fuser from the machine to have better access to the paper inside. It is very easy to damage the fuser roller and film when removing a piece of paper wrapped around inside.

We recommend calling for service, but worst case is you try yourself and can't get the paper out then you would just order a new fuser.

We can get you the fuser. Just call 262-993-1551. We offer free shipping.

I had a piece of paper wrap around the fuser of my Oki C5650 printer. I have removed the paper (all of it.), but now it is displaying a 980 Fatal Error code. What do I do now?

I just had a service call with a 980 error. i removed the paper wrapped around the fuser roller but the error persisted. The only thing that cleared the error was to replace the fuser. I am not sure why but the fuser was shot after it had the paper wrap inside it.

There is no reset to clear the error. The only fix was to replace the fuser.

Paper wrapped around inside of printer and no obvious way to remove it--too tight to get hands in and it appears there are no levers to loosen roller and pull paper out --next option is throw in trash and...

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Dell 922 all in one printer pulls 1/4 of paper thru then stops and message reads load paper; then press menu. It seems to be pulling to one side when it feeds.

sounds almost like theirs something causing the track to hang up. i bet a ripped or shredded piece of paper, maybe it wrapped around the track that pulls the paper in. track meaning the rollers, they have been known to get stuck. open your back access panel and see if theirs a clog. also note: some but few printers will work with the access panel off in the back. watch the paper feed and see if you can figure out why its locking up.

I cannot even see the "stuck" paper.

it will probably have wrapped itself around one of the fuser rollers. You may be able to see the fuser rollers from the rear of the printer and check to see. to remove the fuser is quite involved even after removing the 2 side covers, the top cover and the back cover. the fuser is the component that gets extremely hot, near the paper exit.

Paper Jam that pulls paper to the right and crooked then get error message no paper


You have either a rubber roller that has gone completely bad or more likely there is something still stuck in the printer - probably a piece of paper wrapped around part of the feed roller. Open it up and examine carefully with a flashlight. If you can't find any foreign objects then wipe down all the rubber rollers with denatured alcohol.

Green power light flashing. computer says paper jam but no paper in it.

Look real close around the rollers front and back for littles pieces that may have torn under the rollers. Also try canned air blowing directly under the rollers front and back.

Main roller has a piece of paper wraped around it

What "main roller"? the drum? The "Fuser"?...either way, instructions are to detailed to list here.
If you're talking about the drum....just order a new cartridge (easiest solution)
