Hello and thank you for choosing JA for your support needs. Sorry for the issue. Please follow the steps below:

If you need to turn off the machine to remove jammed paper during printing, press the Stop button to cancel print jobs before turning off the machine.

Solution

Paper Jams

If you need to turn off the machine to remove jammed paper during printing, press the <Stop> button to cancel print jobs before turning off the machine.

Paper Is Jammed in the Paper Output Slot or the Rear Tray

  1. Pull the paper out slowly, either from the rear tray or from the paper output slot, whichever is easier.

    Note:
    • If you cannot pull the paper out, turn the machine off and turn it back on. The paper may be ejected automatically.
    • If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the machine, see Paper Is Jammed inside the Machine.
  2. Reload the paper, and press the OK button on the machine.
    If you turned off the machine in step 1, all print jobs in the queue are canceled. Reprint if necessary.

    Note:
    • When reloading the paper, confirm that you are using the paper suited for printing and are loading it correctly.
    • We recommend you use paper other than A5 sized one to print documents with photos or graphics; otherwise, the printout may curl and cause paper exit jams.
  3. If you cannot remove the paper or the paper tears inside the machine, or if the paper jam error continues after removing the paper,go to the next section.

Paper Is Jammed inside the Machine

Remove the paper following the procedure below.

  1. Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply.
  2. Open the scanning unit / cover.

    Important:
    • Do not touch the clear film (A) or the white belt (B).
      If the paper or your hands touch these parts and blot or scratch them, the machine can be damaged.

  3. Make sure that the print head holder does not hang over the paper.
    If the print head holder hangs over the paper, move the print head holder to the right edge or the left edge whichever is easier to remove the paper.
    When you move the print head holder, hold the top of the print head holder and slide it slowly to the right edge or the left edge.

  4. Hold the jammed paper with your hands.
    If the edge of paper is jammed near the paper output slot, pull the edge of paper to the position where you can hold it with your hands.

  5. Pull the paper slowly not to tear it, then pull the paper out diagonally forward in front at aslant.
    Keep an angle of the paper about 45 degrees and pull it slowly.

  6. Make sure that all the jammed paper is removed.
    If the paper is torn, a piece of paper may remain inside the machine. Check the following and remove the piece of paper if it remains.
    • Does the piece of paper remain under the print head holder?
    • Does the little piece of paper remain inside the machine?
    • Does the piece of paper remain in the right side or the left side space (A) inside the machine?

  7. Close the Scanning Unit (Cover), then reload the paper.

All print jobs in the queue are canceled. Reprint if necessary.

Note: If the message about paper jam is displayed when you resume printing after removing all the jammed paper, a piece of paper may remain inside the machine. In this case, confirm that no piece of paper remains inside the machine.

If you cannot remove the paper or the paper tears inside the machine, or if the paper jam error continues after removing the paper, go to the next section.
