Read through all the following sections to avoid damage to your printer.

Locate and remove any paper stuck in the loading tray

  1. Remove any loose paper in the loading tray.
  2. Press the Resume button on the front of the printer.
Note

  1. Remove stuck paper one sheet at a time, starting in the middle.
  2. Check for any remaining bits of paper.
Note

If the paper jam is cleared, skip to ensure the printer carriage can move freely section. Otherwise, continue to the next section below.

Clearing the jam from the rear of the printer

If you can't get to the paper jam from the loading tray, follow the instructions to clear the paper from the rear of the printer. Usually, the back of the printer has either a rear access panel or a two-sided printing accessory.

Note

The type of rear access door differs by printer brand and model. If you cannot find or remove the rear access panel, check the printer manufacturer's website for specific details.

Removing a rear access panel

  1. Locate the knob or access tab on the back of the printer by or on the panel itself. If it's a knob, move it to the Unlocked position.
  2. Remove the panel and carefully pull out the jammed paper.
  3. Locate and clear away any small bits of paper that remain.
  4. Replace and secure the rear panel.

Remove the two-sided printing accessory to clear the paper jam

  1. Press both RELEASE buttons on either end of the module at the same time and remove it.
  2. Remove the panel and carefully pull out the jammed paper.
  3. Locate and clear away any small bits of paper that remain.
  4. Push the module back on and snap it into place.

Pulling the paper out from under the front cover

If all the previous steps have failed, you may attempt to remove the jammed paper by pulling it out from under the front cover CAREFULLY and SLOWLY. Remember, as stated above, this step is generally not recommended and should only be a last resort, as it could cause damage to the printer.

Tip

If you have a laser printer, you may need to remove the toner cartridge before you can get full access to the paper.

Ensure the printer carriage can move freely

  1. Disconnect the printer from power by unplugging the power cord from the power outlet.
  2. Watch the carriage to see if it moves fully to the right side of the printer and out of sight. Do not force the carriage to move if it's stuck, as this may damage your printer.
Note

If the paper jam is cleared, skip to the testing the printer section.

  1. Carefully remove the ink cartridge(s).
  2. Without removing the drawer, remove any paper in the loading tray.
  3. Remove the two-sided printing accessory (module) or rear access door.
  4. With your fingers, rotate the rollers toward the top of the printer for three full rotations.
  5. Replace the two-sided printing accessory (module) or rear access door.
  6. Replace the ink cartridges.
  7. Plug in and turn on your printer.

Reloading and testing the printer

Once you've removed the jam, cleared away any remaining bits of paper, and ensured the print carriage can move without issue, test your printer.

  1. Put some inkjet paper into the loading tray and slide it into place.
  2. Print a test page by performing a self-test. Usually, a self-test can be initiated by pressing and holding the Resume button until the printer starts printing.

Continued problems? Possible printer hardware problems

If the printer claims there is still a paper jam after going through the steps above, your printer may have a hardware problem. A malfunctioning roller or parts in the paper feed mechanism can make a printer think it has a paper jam.

In the case of a hardware problem, it may be possible to have the printer repaired. However, due to the low costs of printers today, it is often cheaper to buy a new printer instead of having a printer repaired.

Preventing a printer paper jam

As mentioned earlier, paper jams are an inevitability over the life of your printer. However, if you're encountering frequent paper jams, the following steps may help prevent them.

  1. If your printer has a paper tray, do not fill the tray. Overfilling the paper tray is frequently causes paper jams.
  2. Many printers have sliding mechanisms that allow different types and sizes of paper to be fed into the printer. If the slider is not correctly positioned, it can cause a paper jam.
  3. Use standard office paper. Folded, labeled, and specialty paper can often cause jams because they have irregular dimensions. If you're uncertain which types of paper your printer accepts, consult the printer documentation.
  4. If you are printing multiple pages, do not mix the paper sizes.
  5. Make sure your printer paper is correctly seated into the slot or tray.
  6. Examine the printer for any debris before printing. Previous paper jams, torn paper, printing labels, or other foreign objects in the printer can cause reoccurring jams.

As consumers, we can cut back on a variety of things to save money, but there is one necessity that everyone must have. Toilet paper is an essential of life and running out can create a dilemma of epic proportions. It makes one wonder what people did before the creation of the soft and sturdy commodity. There were no doubt more crude versions of the hygienic wipe around, but they probably weren’t as comfortable to use.

Increasing prices of toilet paper

As you roll your shopping cart down the toilet paper aisle, you’ll see people eyeing the choices and you can tell by the looks on their faces that they’re feeling a bit of disgust at the rising prices. Some may say that “toilet paper is toilet paper and they’re all about the same.” Well, I’d have to disagree on that point. If you’ve ever used one of the thinner 1 ply types that feel like they’re just a roughed up version of cheap writing paper, you’ll know what I’m talking about. You don’t have to pay top dollar to get a decent quality that does the job adequately and doesn’t cause moments of remorse, but the stuff isn’t cheap anymore. The next time you roll your eyes at the top end mega packs that are going for between $20 and $30 a bundle, think about what we’re about to show you. We did our research to find out just how much the most expensive toilet paper in the world costs and what we discovered was a big shock!

The most expensive roll of toilet paper in the world

Never mind the extra fluffy double rolls in a mega pack, the price for just one roll of 22 carat gold toilet paper goes for $1,500,000. In case you’re wondering, this isn’t a joke. It was originally created by an Australian man who used 22 carat gold flakes to create this amazing, yet expensive single roll of toilet paper. It was originally made for promotional purposes, but the roll is really up for sale. News of the 22 carat toilet paper has circulated throughout the world, but there haven’t been any takers yet. The roll went on the market in 2010 and it’s still available if you’re so inclined.

Would anyone really use 22 carat gold toilet paper?

Paper Jamz Website

The average person wouldn’t dream of soiling something so valuable, because there’s little doubt that once the roll is used as a bathroom toiletry, its value will plummet. There was speculation that a super wealthy buyer may do it for a thrill, particularly a fun loving party type with money to burn and a devil may care attitude, but not even one of these guys possesses the level of disrespect for money or art, to do such a thing. We’re pretty sure that the odds are stacked against the novelty toilet paper roll ever selling.

Not sure of the quality

There hasn’t been a lot of information released on the quality of the toilet paper. All we really know is that it’s three ply quality, it’s safe to use and it’s up for sale. This tells us little about the comfort level or if the gold will flake off when you try to use it. Better not to take the chance. How soft could a metal infused tissue possibly be?

Bonus included for the buyer

Paper.jamz

There’s no getting around the fact that this 22 carat toilet paper roll is novel, cool and worth a fortune, but it’s not really the type of thing that most collector’s would go for. It just doesn’t seem to fit into any real collectible genre we could immediately identify. If anyone out there does decide to take the plunge and make the purchase, there are a couple of perks that go with the sale. Upon receipt of the payment in full, the owner will gift wrap the roll and deliver it personally to whoever buys it. We’re assuming that it includes anywhere in the world. But that’s not all that you’ll get. They’re also throwing in a complimentary bottle of champagne with the purchase, although it’s not stipulated which brand, nor year.

Final thoughts

I believed that this would make me feel better about the rising costs of toilet paper. I was wrong. I looked at the skinny rolls of less than premium quality being offered at the price of $6.99 for 6 and I didn’t feel better at all. If anything, they looked more wretched in comparison.
