It may be the printer roller that not moving smoothly and catching the paper to cause jam. Check out the spring and any loose joint.

Also check out the Paper feeding tray is kept at normal, not having any problem viz. loose, inclination, distance, the clipper or scale touching to roller.

The problem is the Fuser unit. It may cost more that what the printer is worth.

Error message that paper jam in paper cradle


Try this:
  • open the lid of the printer (from where you can see the ink cartridges);
  • remove the ink cartridges;
  • use warm water and cotton swabs to clean both the ink cartridges and the print head (where the cartridges sit on) off of any ink residue;
  • place the ink cartridges back into the printer and test if this works by printing something.


If you're still having issues, there may be a mechanical problem; in which case you need to get it repaired by someone.




Good luck!

My printer keeps saying print cartridge cradle is stuck clear jam then press ok, but there is no paper jam


Because it's NOT a paper jam, but a cartridge cradle jam, I suppose it's an ink jet printer??? if so, check for debrie arround the cradle shaft that could prevent the printing cradle to move from left to wright... you could also lubricate the shaft by rubbing a little bit of grease on it with the tip of your finger (verry thin layer), as ink sometimes gets on it and tends to become sticky with time...

When trying to use the scanner to make a copy of a document. The paper jammed, how do you remove it? It said on the glass window to remove the back where the ink containers are. I did that but I cannot see...


There are possible 2 places for the paper jam, either the Feeder has jammed or from the input tray.
For Feeder, you just have to open the feeder from the top and see if there are any pieces sticking in.
Else, you can open the print head cover and look for pieces of paper jammed in it.
Another place you may see is by removing the rear of the printer, it is called a duplexor which can be taken off easily. You may find some bits of pieces in rear of the printer.
To avoid getting another jam, try to keep the paper in a cool and dry place. If the paper absorbs any humidity, it starts crumpling which results in paper jam. You can also try fanning the papers before putting in a bunch and use a recommended paper for the printer.
Hope this helps.
Cheers...

I keep getting a paper jam


  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

If the problem is not solved the printer would need to be taken apart and cleaned, there maybe some paper inside or something else that is not supposed to get in there.

I would recommend sending it to a repairer in that case, or contact your dealer or hp for warranty repair. This may not be covered by warranty, check with your dealer or hp.

I had a paper jam, and now every time i try to print it jams the ink cartrages , one paper jam and now it will not work


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Dell 922 All-In-One Printer will not print anything


The printer does not feed paper from the tray and then states that there is a paper jam. I have removed all paper and there isn't a paper jam. It will feed paper through the lower roller and straight into the printed paper tray, but will not feed a new sheet.
