No, I cannot see the 1/3 sheet of torn paper in the printer.
Ok if you have an envolope or index card please do the following with the machine turned off. There are a few different ways so this post may be long.

  1. Turn off the printer and disconnect the power cord and USB cable.

  2. Remove the jammed paper slowly using the following procedure.

  3. Open the rear cover to check if the paper is jammed.



  4. Pull out the cassette and check if the paper is jammed inside the cassette area.



  5. Stand the printer with the rear side down, holding the document cover.

  6. Press the tabs together and pull the green cover toward you.

  7. Check if the paper is jammed.
    (If you were not doing Duplex printing, you do not have to follow this procedure.)



  8. Close the green cover and place the printer back to a normal position.

  9. Reconnect the power cord and power on the printer. Confirm the Alarm light is off.

  10. Load paper back into the ASF or cassette.

  11. Press <OK> to clear the message and continue printing. If you are printing from an application software, follow the instructions displayed on your computer.

I removed several small pieces of paper from behind the cassette area, turned the printer on, pressed ok. The printer started one sheet , 81/2 by 11, which jammed. I pulled it out. The printer then took another sheet of paper which came through ok. Apparently, it is working ok now. I will attempt printing to see if it is working correctly now.

The printer seems to be working ok now. Thanks. XXXXX

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
