Kodak ES 500 printer "paper jam"

Before printing it transfers a sheet through, so it it is hanging 3 1/2 " out of the back. Printer screen shows "Paper jam". I disconnect power for 10 seconds, then power it back. It releases the sheet, and transfers the next one, so it is 3 1/2" out in the back of the printer. And the cycle starts over.

What kind of paper is jamming?
The paper could be too thin, or too thick.

Have any young children visited you recently?

My neighbour's grandson thought the paper tray was a great place to hide his Oreo cookie and gummy bears. The crumbs on the roller made the paper wrap around inside. It was cheaper to buy a new printer than pay for a tear down. This happened to my neighbour over Christmas.

Check for spilled ink inside the cartridge area.
If Ink has dripped down on the rollers, that would jam the paper. This would only be an issue if anyone moved the printer. Could your cleaning person have done this? It happend to me, once.

Have you checked the slider that adjusts for different paper sizes?
It could be putting too much tension on the paper and throwing off the timing of the paper travelling through the printer, so the sheet is in the wrong place at the wrong time and jams up.

Is it 8.5" x 11" photo grade inkjet paper or 4" x 6" photo paper?

Before I print, I check that the paper type setting matches what is in the tray. If it is letter size premium photo paper, then I choose that paper in the printer settings. If it is premium letter size paper for documents then I choose that paper, so the printer can adjust itself to the paper.

Are you using recycled paper?
My Kodak, HP, Epson, and Canon printers jam. Recycled paper really screws up my machines. I don't like it and can't use it.

Do you have too much paper in the tray?
Try 5 or 10 sheets only in the tray to see if the amount of paper was the culprit.

Have you tried a different package or brand of paper?
One time a package of 500 sheets of HP inkjet wouldn't go through my KODAK , but worked fine in
the other printers. The next package of HP paper worked fine.

How long has the paper been out of the package and sitting in the printer?

Try fanning the paper.

Has the humidity in your area drastically changed in the past week?
I have to keep the paper sealed in the original package. Inkjet paper out of the package is affected by humidity where I live. Winter heating causes out of package paper to collect static and stick to the rollers. Summer temperatures with high humidity causes out of package inkjet paper to absorb moisture from the room. This humid paper sticks together.

Is the paper meant for a photo copier or laser printer/copier?
I get lousy results with non-inkjet paper in every brand of injet printer I use.

Is it Brand name InkJet paper, like Kodak, XEROX, or HP?
I stick to brand name inkjet and photo paper. Dollar store paper always jams in my printers.

For Document Printing I use either:
Kodak's 24 lb Ultimate Inket Printer Brightness 98 paper,
XEROX Premium Inkjet Brightness 98 24 lb,
or
HP 96 Brightness Premium Inkjet Printer 24 lb paper.

For Photo Printing I use Kodak's Ultra Premium Photo Paper, and adjust the printer's settings for it.

SOURCE: kodak #G600 printer dock/roller won't pull paper through

I read this solution to a problem someone else was having which was similar to my problem. I wiped off the roller with a damp cloth, made sure it was dry and that's all it took to allow the roller to be able to start to pull the paper through. - thanks for the help!

Printer keeps displaying error 3528 there is no paper in it and has never been any please help


Hello, Welcome to FixYa!
Error 3528 in Kodak Printer is mostly because of paper jam. their may be small bit paper jam in side. There are some "micro-sensors" that detect a paper jam. To solve it
Try taking off the roller access panel in the back and make sure that the printer has not picked up a sheet of paper somewhere in the path.Also make sure that sure that really there is no piece of paper paper, dust or foreign objects.If you have seen and you are sure that there is no any paper or foreign object then Turn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air. Turn the printer On and check. If you still face this error then try a trick may be it can resolve the issue.
Press the On,Off button on the printer and turn off your printer. Now wait for 30 seconds.Press On button to turn your printer On and try printing.
If still there is an error then then probably your Kodak ESP 3 Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner is in need of servicing by a service professional.
I hope this solution helps you.
Thank you for using FixYa!

Sounds like there is a sheet of paper jammed in it. Try taking off the roller access panel in the back (not the access panel by the cartridges). Make sure to only use clean sheets with proper humidity level to avoid jams. Also fan the sheets before feeding to disperse any static.

Duplex paper jam . i thought i took out the paper that was jammed and i am still getting that message, PLUS now I cannot the top tray back.


The duplexer, which flips the paper to automatically print on the back side, slides into the back of your printer. Unplug the printer and slide the duplexer out to check it for jammed sheets. You might have pulled out a sheet or two in the main printer section and left one in the duplexer.
As for the top tray, the paper feed wheels ride on the end of a long lever that drops down to rest on the paper. It should be held up out of the way by a spring until the drawer is inserted, but sometimes the plastic nub that the spring pulls on breaks off. Lexmark sells a little kit of the spring and "bellcrank" to fix it. If your paper tray holds 500 sheets - a whole **** - you need part no. 56P1331 "Parts packet, bellcrank and spring, 500 sheet." For 250-sheet trays the part number is 56P1337. A web search for either part number will find you a seller.

Error code 3528 keeps coming up,telling me to remove back cover and remove paper jam then replace back cover.there is no paper jam,checked printer heads no paper anywhere?


I have this printed and if you read (carefully) through the manual it tells you it doesn't like single sheets of paper. If ever my paper feeder tray runs below say 3 sheets then this error will crop up so keep it topped up with paper. The same goes for photo paper too.

When trying to print the printer pulls in more than 1 sheet of paper causing a jam in e.ta


just folowe the steps

1. 1
Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge to fade away before putting your hands or metal tools inside the chassis.
2. Step 2
Pin down the exact location of the jam. The three hot spots for a jam are the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and the print carriage, or between the print carriage and the output tray.
3. Step 3
Take off the front paper tray if the sheet got stuck while it was still in the front area of the printer. If the sheet jammed here, you should be able to see most of the paper.
4. Step 4
Pull on the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a chunk of it deeper in the machine.
5. Step 5
Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed tray area and the print carriage of the all-in-one printer. Carefully remove the jammed paper from the machine.
6. Step 6
Use the carriage access door to reach a jam further inside the all-in-one printer. You may need to move the print carriage out of your way to clear the jam.
7. Step 7
Return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

Error paper jam


You should go to the website of whoever manufactures your printer. They always have drivers for their printers that you should be able to download and install in just a few minutes.

If you're absolutely, 100% sure that there is no paper jam, I would recommend just unplugging and restarting the printer.

Also, it may read a paper jam if you insert too much paper at one time. If you have a lot of paper installed in the printer, try taking out all but 10 sheets, and retry printing. My printer has a tray that accepts 150 sheets, but it "jams" if you put even close to that many in.

You should make sure that you aren't putting the paper too far in as well. Try pulling it back a few millimeters, as it may read a jam if the paper is pushed into the printing area.

Please perform the below steps.

1. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge inside the all-in-one printer to dissipate before putting your hands or any metal tools inside the chassis.

2.
Pin down the exact location of the jam. The 3 hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and print carriage or between the print carriage and output tray.

3.
Take off the front paper tray if the sheet jammed while still in the front area of the printer. If here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

4.
Pull the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a piece deeper inside the machine.

5.
Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed-tray area and print carriage. Carefully remove the jammed paper.

6.
Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside the printer. You may need to remove the print carriage to get to the jam.

7.
Replace all parts and return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.
