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.

PAPER JAM - HOW DO I REMOVE SHEET OF JAMMED PAPER


The 2600s have a door in the back that can be removed to gain access to any sheets that may have become jammed. The front panel opens in two stages, the second requiring a button press on the side to gain access. Using gentle pressure and left-to-right motions you can slowly pry the trapped page from the rollers (make sure the printer is off before you begin) Some amount of disassembly may be required if the page becomes torn, but refrain from using sharp objects to pry the paper free. If you are unable to find the jammed sheet, remove the paper drawer and check the feed rollers.

The dvd drawer won't open. it is "stuck" closed.


Hello

A stuck drawer indicates a jammed mechanism or the presence of a mechanical drawer lock.

Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

Copier keeps telling us there is paper jam, we have looked where screen shows jam and find nothing. We have taken out the paper tray, still don't find even a tiny scrap of paper anywhere.


There are several possibilities. After you inspect for the Jam and close the drawer, does the copier come to ready? Have you checked the behind the doors on the right side. If the copier comes to ready and you press the start button does the copier jam right away. If so check the dial on the paper drawer and be sure its set to the right size paper. If its not the copier will jam, right away. It is important with a Canon to check all areas and open both the paper drawer and the right side doors when checking for jam, if the right sequence is not followed in checking for jams the jam may not clear. If still Jammed you might take some canned air open the right side door and blow out the paper feed area, a sensor may be blocked or dusty. If all else fails turn the machine off and un-plug it from the wall, let it set a few minutes and plug it in and try it again.

Jammed paper the jam is obvious when trying to slide paper drawer in. Jammed Paper is not visible Lifting movable parts does not expose paper


Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

Error code on Ricoh FT5733 copier


Open ALL paper jam locations on the machine. The jam code only means the paper jam is somewhere BEYOND the paper drawer. Check ALL jam locations including duplexer, bypass, and ALL paper drawers.

Paper getting jammed when rotate sort


To clarify LT and LT-R are both 8 1/2" x 11", most models of Toshiba will ask what size paper are in the drawer when they are open and shut,. if you have LT paper (landscape) in a drawer, but tell the machine it is LT-R (portrait) when it tries to feed it will jam because it "senses" you are missing 2 1/2" of paper. So make sure your settings are correct, in my experience this is 90% of the jamming issues on Toshibas. Rotate sort uses both drawers to interleave the LT & LT-R into "stacks" so they must be opposite directions but corresponding to correct direction (portrait, landscape)

Paper jam check drawer two t640 printer


Hello there,

If you are getting "Paper Jam check drawer two message" I would suggest you to check for any paper stuck inside the paper drawer two. If you don't see any paper jammed inside drawer two, you might also want to check out if its is stuck anywhere in the paper path. Removing the paper jam should fix the issue. Try cleaning the pick rollers (the rollers which pick the paper) in drawer two. This should help fixing this issue.

Merry Christmas!
