Hp C5280 Paper Jam error - no paper + component fell apart

I have two problems with my HP Photosmart C5280. I tried to print something, but I had a paper jam. I cleared the jam, but the problem persists. I looked for small pieces of paper, but there was nothing. While searching, I found a plastic component and a screw in the left part of the printer. I have some photos here:
Can you help me please? My printer won't do anything because of the "paper jam".

    I keep getting the error that I have a paper jam as well when all paper has been cleard. The problem comes when the ink cartridge container seems to slam into the left side of the casing. It's as iff it doesn't know the width of the printer. I do not know if this is a system reset issue but I need to know how to correct this.

    frustrated with this product. Just two months old, paper jams and it cannot be rectified by supplied instructions

    I got the same product HP C5280, Paper Jam notice on screen, apparently no paper inside the printer. Almost new, haven't been used. When I opened the cover from top, the cartridges are in left side, it seems like I have a same problem as previous Guest.

    I called technical support, they offered service for $65 per year.

Paper jamed


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Perform the steps below in order to solve this incidence:
  1. Disconnect the power cord or power supply adaptor from the rear of the HP All-in-One product.
  2. Remove the paper pack remaining in the input tray.
WARNING - Do not try to remove the jammed paper sheet yet. Trying to clear a paper jam from the front of the device can damage the print mechanism. Always clear paper jams through the rear access door.
  1. Open the rear access door or the two-sided printing accessory.
  2. Gently pull the jammed paper sheet out of the rollers.
  3. If the paper tore when it was being removed from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the device. If not all the pieces of paper are removed from the device, paper jams are likely to occur again later.
  4. Replace the rear access door or the two-sided printing accessory.
  5. Restart the printer to continue the current job.

Continuous PAper jam error-message!!!


Sounds like a small piece of the jammed paper is stuck inside on a paper path switch OR in pulling out the jam you've dislocated a switch actuator so it is not working correctly. Careful checking of the paper path components should find it. Probably a slot in one of the guides is hiding it.

My HP photosmart c5280 keeps saying there is a carriage jam. what is this?


Lift the printer cover. undo the 2 screws (torx head). remove the right hand end of the printer casing.

You will see a blavck plastic moulding with a couple of gears (it controls the cartridge cleaning). This is the cause of your jam - it is out of sync. Turn the machine on and watch what happens with this moulding you will see what I mean by out of sync and it can just be gently pushed back into alignment. Once it is ok turn the unit off and then on again and your jam should be cleared. Put it back together again and print away.

I cant print business cards on my hp c5280


Verify no pieces of the card paper are missing and try printing on plain paper to make sure. Then try new card paper and make sure none of the perforations are separated.

Paper Jam in HP4385


Hi there,

Paper can jam inside the printer for a number of reasons.
  • Open the cover to the printer and look inside to see if there are any pieces of paper or debris that may be blocking the print path.
  • Be sure to unplug the printer before touching anything internal to avoid electric shock. If there is something blocking the print path, remove it, close the printer, and try printing again.
  • You can also check inside the printer to see if any components have come loose.

Paper Jam


Just check the rollers for debris or any tiny piece of paper. Sometimes using refilled cartridges also can cause this error. Should that not work, you could try a hard reset: unplug printer from pc and mains. wait about 10-15 minutes and while holding down the power button, connect to mains and tho pc. Hopefully that should work.
