I have paper jammed in my HP DESKJET PRINTER D2260. Tried to pull it out but paper ripped off and can still see other end still in there. Been advised to open back door and clear it but cant see how back...


Check the following steps for fixing Hp Carriage Jam Error :

Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.

Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.

Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed paper out.

How do I clear a paper jam in the Kodak ESP-3 can't get to the paper


If you have tried the Kodak standard instructions for clearing the paper jam problem and it did not help try the procedure below. Works for esp 7.
1. Open the printing area of the printer (containing the ink cartridges).
2. The Ink cartridge holder should be to right side of track.
3. Look on left side, below the track for the cartridge that is used to
clean the print heads.It can be identified by a square black pad
approx. 1" sqaure that appears to be made of "felt".
If it is visible this is most likely your problem.
4. To correct problem locate the flat latching lever approx. 3/4" wide that
sticks up about 1/2" above the cartridge. It is locacted just behind
the "felt" square. Gently push lever toward rear which should free the
cleaning cartridge and allow the entir cartridge to move slightly
backward.
5. Close the top of the printer and cycle the printer off and back on.
If this is the problem, the "paper jam" error will now be gone.
This is such a simple fix I do not know why kodak does not inform
customers of this problem and how to fix it.

Blinking green light


Clear the paper jam, or replace the ink cartridge. Possible causes are the paper jam or ink cartridge. The other solution is to disconnect the power from your printer and reconnect it. Hope this helps!

Ink cartridge carrier jam


Once it jams on the left turn off the machine. usually my lights are all red at that point, one is blinking the other two are solid red. open the cover. shine a flashlight in there, you will see a clear or light grey plastic ribbon that runs from the left to the right. it is the top most thing. Very carefully, clean it with a paper towel and a little water. or a kleenex. it should be almost clear.
after done, move the cartridge head to the right without turning on the printer. once again, clean the clear plastic ribbon where the cartridge head was located. finally turn on the printer, when it stops initializing, click the paper feed button, if you were successful, you won't see it jam into the left side.
if not, try repeating again. I think the optical head could also have some junk on it, and will deposit it back on the clear grey plastic strip.

the clear strip passes through the cartridge head. I'm told it is called an encoder strip and the optical head reads the strip to know it's position.

when that strip is dirty or covered with some ink spots, the print/cartridge head, can't read it and slams into the side the the printer.

this happened to my c80 at least 3 times now in seven years.

HP 5650 deskjet printer


Did you or one of your users have a paper jam recently and force the jam out of the printer? Because we've had a few 5650's do this after a jam. About 66% of the time this fixed it...

  • Removing the ink, unplugging the printer, moving the print head to the half way point, and starting the printer. If it resets at that point and lets you put the ink in, your usually gold. If it just stops and blinks again your not.

That said, I'm actually taking one apart that wasn't fixable this way right now. I think the problem may be something related to not recognizing if the cover is up/down, but still can't see why it happens or how that it is effected by the jam.

Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight

the waste ink tank becomes completely full, printing will be no longer
possible.
