Yes, this is a paper jam. Open up your printer as if you were changing the ink. Get a torch if needed and a pair of tweezers in case it is small. Get in ther and have a good look for it. It can be so tiny and could be near the carriage that is off to the side, in the roller and its teeth or further down. he paper cruching is because of the jam and the fact the carriage cannot center itself. Good luck.

My HP laser printer 1300 had a paper jam


When printing or copying, paper will not pick up or feed into the HP LaserJet 1000, 1200 or 1300 series product causing paper jams or wrinkled output. Symptoms are as follows:
  • The pickup roller will spin and try to pick paper.
  • The paper will partially feed into the product accompanied by a crackling, crunching noise then jamming.
  • The paper may feed all the way through the paper path accompanied by a crackling, crunching noise. The output will be skewed and wrinkled.
SOLUTION: Reposition the black Mylar light shields back into the proper position.
  1. Unplug the power cord from the product.
  2. Remove the paper and paper input tray.
  3. Slide hands, palms side up, into the paper input tray cavity (see Figure 1) until the fingertips reach the end of the cavity. Figure 1: Paper input tray cavityc00068598.jpg
  4. Bend fingers up to push the black Mylar light shields back into place. The proper position of the black Mylar light shield will be flat.
  5. Reconnect the power cord.
  6. Print a self-test/configuration page to verify product is functioning correctly.

Printer crunching paper


either it's a paper stuck under roller, or along that side of the raceway, or the roller on that side is dirty, and can't grab the paper well.

PAPER JAM


Hi, oh dear, you have a paper jam in or near the roller or very small one in carriage. Open up unit as if rplacing cartridges, get a torch if you have to and search for tiny jam. A good clue, is does the carriage return to correct positon upon opening?

Paper jam/lockup


Check to see if the egg-shaped rubber feed roller is cracked. (Pull out the paper tray, it's in the middle at the front on top.) That's what I'm looking for now on the ML-1740. Seems Samsung used cheap rubber for the roller. It should only be a $.50 part if you can find one.
