A piece of paper stuck in the paper tray or inside the printer can create a paper jam. Paper jams can occur for a variety of reasons, such as overloading the paper tray, loading different thicknesses of paper in the tray, or using paper that isn`t appropriate for your particular printer.
But for this specific issue, where the printer is reporting a paper jam even though no paper seems to be jammed, I`ve found that 90% of the time there`s one thing to blame: the guides on the paper tray. Any time your printer halts because of a paper jam, check the tray that holds the paper.
During a print job, the printer stops feeding pages, and a Paper Jam error message displays on the printer control panel. This indicates that paper might be jammed inside the printer. note: Paper jams can be real or false. The printer might report a paper jam even when there is no jammed paper.
Loading paper that is stuck together, frayed, curled or bent can cause a jam. Overloading the paper tray, loading different thicknesses of paper in the tray or using paper that isn`t appropriate for your particular printer can all result in a jammed printer.
This may be caused by pieces of paper or foreign matter in the machine, or paper not loaded correctly.
Reset. Resetting the printer stops printing and clears the current print job received from the active interface. You may want to reset the printer when there is a problem with the print job itself and the printer cannot print successfully.

Paper Jam error but no paper jam
Obviously you didn’t get all the paper cleared out. There is a small scrap in the paper path causing the jam when the paper hits it. You can try clearing it out by inserting something stiff like a piece of file folder from the back of the printer into the paper path and pushing the offending piece out that way.
