Printer: Brother HL 4150 CON
Paper removed from back tray
All cleared out. No shards of paper in there.
Clogs and rollers are all working fineError message still reading paper jam.
Is there a way to reset the printer so it doesn't say that

Hello Claire,

There may still be a small fragment of paper inside the machine - turn the printer off and try pushing a piece of stiff card manually through the printer to help clear any small pieces of paper and then power the printer on again.

Let me know if that works?
