Paper Jam and Won't feed paper

My printer had a paper jam. When I took off the rear access panel to remove the paper, a black plastic thingy (don't know name for it) came off when I was pulling the paper from the carriage. I popped the black plastic thing (it is the width of the rear access panel) back on (I am assuming that it guides the paper through the rollers), and closed the panel. However, the black plastic thing is loose (when I open rear access panel it pops off) and I a white plastic thing popped out of the paper tray. (I am not sure where it came from). Now the printer is not pulling any paper from the tray, and when it does manage to pull paper, it is jamming right by the rear access panel.

This is the pickup guide....
It is replaceable but you should take it to an authorized HP repair center.
Look for a commercial printer repair company in your area.. not a local computer kid.. this is a part that must be ordered by a guy with certifications.. otherwise.. you void the warranty.

If this printer is under warranty.. give HP a call and ask them if they can send a replacement.. I will warn you though.. they'll want to troubleshoot and give you a hard time to avoid sending a replacement... if you have patience and stamina with people... you can try and i wish you the best.

If it's too much.. it might jsut be easier to buy new and donate the poor printer.

Best wishes. www.techvisitor.com

How do you open the rear door to fix a paper jam on a Kodak 5250 printer?


There are two plastic tips that you pinch inward at the lower back of the printer. A rectangular plastic piece will come out if you give it a god tug and you should be able to remove any jammed paper. I took mine off and never put it back on because it is aggravating to remove. I also had a problem of every 5-6 sheets of paper would not feed correctly through the printer and a paper jam notice would be displayed. I have all but remedied this too by stretching two heavy duty rubber band around the paper dispensing tray close to the bottom to provide more tension on the paper feeder itself. WORKS GREAT FOR ME! GOOD LUCK! Mine is a Kodak esp 3.2 but it paper jams a lot so maybe this will help you some as well?

Check the rear of the printer, there is a flip down panel that exposes the fuser exit and redrive assbly (delivers the paper to the exit rollers). The paper sensors are little black plastic flags that swing in and out of optical sensors.

Canon Inkjet, Not Printing?


Hi Rosa,
There was a paper jam and you cleared the jam, however you missed out to do one other thing. Cleaning the Rollers.

If the Paper Feed Roller is dirty or paper powder is attached to it, paper may not be fed properly.
In this case, clean the Paper Feed Roller. Cleaning will wear out the Paper Feed Roller, so perform this only when necessary.

You need to prepare: three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper

1.Make sure that the power is turned on, and remove any paper from the Rear Tray.

2.Open the Paper Output Tray gently, and open the Output Tray Extension.

3.Clean the Paper Feed Roller without paper.

(1) Press the g0081065_tcm14-774017.jpg (Maintenance) button repeatedly until b appears.

g0081066_tcm14-774018.png
(2) Press the Black or Color button.
The Paper Feed Roller will rotate as it is cleaned.

4.Clean the Paper Feed Roller with paper.
(1) Make sure that the Paper Feed Roller has stopped rotating, and load three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the Rear Tray.
(2) Make sure that b appears on the LED, then press the Black or Color button.
The machine starts cleaning. The cleaning will be completed after the paper is ejected.


This should fix the issue

Hi, sounds like the feed thingy at the rear is misaligned.

Open rear compartment door to reveal the thingy !!

Remove by releasing clips either side pull clear, while out just check there is no paper jam, locate back in making sure the thingy relocates with an obvious click on securing . Hope this solves problem.

Paper jams can be real or false. The unit may report a paper jam when there is not any jammed paper, however, the solution to a real paper jam or a false paper jam is the same. WARNING: Jammed paper must be removed using the rear access door and the power cord must be disconnected or a carriage jam or mechanical damage may occur. Do not remove jammed paper from the front of the unit.
  1. Turn off the HP product and turn it so the back of the unit faces you.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the all-in-one. The power cord must be disconnected to allow the paper feed rollers to turn freely.
  3. Locate and open the rear access door by pressing in on the left side tab and then pulling the door toward you. Figure 1: Removing the rear access door c00108288.jpg Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door.

  6. Remove the remaining paper from the paper supply tray. Discard any paper that is damaged or crumpled and then re-stack and reload the paper into the paper supply tray.
  7. Reinstall the rear access door.
  8. Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on. If a carriage stall occurs after clearing the paper jam, resolve the carriage stall.

Kyocera 3900dn says paper jam in rear but no jam evident


Usually a printer doesn't lie when it indicates a paper jam, if you have checked as thoroughly as possible and no paper can be found. It is possible that the paper just isn't feeding and a printer will sometimes indicate a paper jam when paper doesn't feed. But if this isn't the case and a jam is indicated as soon as you turn the printer on, one of the plastic jam sensing actuators may be broken or hung up.

Preventing paper jams The following information will help prevent paper jams from occurring:
  • When loading paper in to the paper tray, push it in until it meets first resistance. Do not continue pushing the paper in. If the paper is pushed too far in, more than one page is picked and paper jams result. This is the most common cause of paper jams with the HP Officejet 410 series.
  • Never use paper that is wrinkled or damaged in any way.
  • If you are having problems using paper that has already been printed on once, replace it with fresh paper.
  • Remove and then reinstall the rear access door. Verify that the access door is fully locked in place. The paper can skew if the rear access door isn't locked.
  • Every six months - one year, clean the paper feed rollers with a rag slightly dampened with clean water. Over time the paper feed rollers accumulate dust and do not function as well as they once did.
  • When printing envelopes, tuck the flap into the envelope and crease the folds before printing.
Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.
