Printer thinks it's jammed

Our hp 7660 always thinks it's jammed.After pressing "ok" to resume calibration, it sends out one blank page--so not jammed, then rolls the next sheet up into place and them says "paper jam" again. This is irritating. Please help

    We tried to clean the roller. So far, it is doing the same, trying to run the calibration page, and then it gets started and then we still get the paper jam message. Willing to try any suggestions out there. thanks again for trying.

K5400 warning lights indicated print head problems. I have cleaned the print heads and reinstalled them and I am back in business but now it's doing a test print on every occasion.

Try doing an alignment with the printheads.
You can also try changing the inks,if that solves the problem eventhough old inks are stil not empty,contacts might be the issue on old inks which causes error blinking lights which is an indication of printhead rejection.

Method one: Clean printheads in Solution Center
  1. Make sure the printer is loaded with unused white paper.
  2. In HP Solution Center , click Settings , and then click Printer Toolbox .
  3. Select the Services tab, and then click Clean Printheads .

Method two: Clean printheads from the control panel
  1. Make sure the printer is loaded with unused white paper.
  2. Press and hold the Power button
  3. Press the Cancel button two times.
  4. Press the Resume button one time.
  5. Release the Power button
    Cleaning the printheads takes a few minutes, and when it completes, a page prints.

Method one: Calibrate linefeed in Solution Center
  1. Make sure the printer is loaded with unused white paper.
  2. Open HP Solution Center , then click Settings , then Printer Toolbox .
  3. Select the Services tab.
  4. Click Calibrate Linefeed .
  5. An Advance Linefeed Calibration window opens. Click OK .
  6. After calibration, print another PQ Diagnostic. If there are still dark lines or white gaps in Test Pattern 3, the printer must be serviced.
Method two: Calibrate linefeed from the control panel
  1. Press and hold the Power button
  2. Press the Cancel button fourteen times.
  3. Press the Resume button six times.
  4. Release the Power button

HP 7660 "Print Cartridge Cradle is Stuck" Message

I was having same problem but it was a paper jam all the time and then it started to state Cairrage Jam. And what was happening was the unit the cartridges sit in was not going all the way to the right. A little nudge and you could feel it move. Closed lid and sometimes it would print but eventually it would fail. Just replaced but I suspect if you can get to the cairrage you could clean/repair whatever was keeping it from going all the way to the right.

Hope that helps!

HP 5550 Print issue

When you removed the jammed paper , the jam paper sensor was not reset or positioned correctly. The reason the machine was sending two pieces of paper thru at once was probably due to the paper feed sensor. A lot of H'Ps do this. Try re-aligning the tray and if you pulled the paper out and heard a grinding noise, the whole feed unit is probably out of time.I would only re-install the software as a last resort, since your problem was caused by hardware, not software.
