Question about Dell 5210n Laser Printer

1 Answer

I have a paper jam. Some of the paper is still stuck in the rollers. Machine said to open back door. I did and can see the pieces of paper but when I try to pull them out with a pair of needle nose pliers the paper only rips more and does not move.

HI, Try to roll gently and slowly the paper roller and pull the piece of paper in the same time. Grab the piece of paper close to the roller to prevent tearing. Good luck!

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.

PIXMA 450...Keep getting paper jam message and I can't see any paper bits anywhere. Trying to open the machine from the back to look inside. Have removed the 4 screws on the back and still can't remove...


Hi

The paper jammed can be found in the paper tray, remove the paper at the paper tray and inspect the roller for small pieces of paper jammed.

The paper can be found in the ink cartridge compartment, open the cartridge door and remove the ink cartridges, look for posibble paper jammer. Also once remove, check also the cartridge carrier if does not stuck up or jammed (cause this might me the problem). Turn off your printer and then move the cartridge head using your hand moving to the from right to left side and from left side to right side for 2-3 times. Move it gently.

Paper can be found in the rear access door if it is accessible. Inspect some paper jammed there.

Please let me know if you need more help

Hi,

Turn off the printer

Open the Rear Access Door,

Close the Door

Open the Front access door, Check if there are any paper pieces stuck,
Remove the cartridges out and Install back.

Close the Door and turn on the printer.

It should work.

It always says paper jam and it has no paper jam


  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.


if the problem remains, some of the sensor / switches might have become stuck or are out of place, or there is still a small piece of paper or something else inside the machine and its coming up as a paper jam.

The machine would need to be taken apart and cleaned to solve the issue.

Samsung SCX-4521 "Paper Jam 2" won't clear


Hi there have you tried the door at the back of the machine as there maybe a piece stuck in the fuser unit. If not open the back door and check that there is a small black lever in the middle of the two rollers sticking up as this is the sensor arm that determines that there is a paper jam or not. If this is still there then the paper will be stuck just after the paper cassette within the paper path.

Hope this helps you.

Goodluck,
