It sounds like there is a sensor that got damaged or jammed when your paper jam occurred. Look around the inside edge of the door for a pin or clip that may pass into a hole that signals a door closed. If you can't find that look around the edge that the door touches for a contact that the door could trip. If you find either look for a damaged clip or a piece of paper that could be affecting the signal.

If you can't find either please advise me as to the manufacturer and model of your printer so I may find out what type and the location of your sensor

Thanks
Dave

How do I fix this paper jam2


Dear
Open and close the front door. The jammed paper
automatically exits the machine.or gently pull the paper out of the output tray.
If there is any resistance and the paper does not
move when you pull, or if you cannot see the paper
in the output tray, open the rear door by pulling the
tab on it.Remove the jammed paper by gently pulling it
straight out.Close the rear door.
Some times it may happen if machine gets ready and after one page print it shows jam2 , then check the lever for jam2 sensor on the top of fusser, the spring may dislocated or lever may broken(rare).
Thanks.

Does the office jet 8500 have a power reset button ? paper jamed, i removed the paper but now nothing happens


Hi,

Check the following Steps to fix HP Printer Carriage Jam :

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 papaer out.

I have a paper jam in my printer. The paper is


You will have to open the Printer door and pull the paper out if you are lucky it will pull out in one piece if not you will have to get all the pieces out before it will operate again. When pulling out go very easy with it and move your fingers down with the paper to apply force at the closest point to where the paper pulls into printer.

HL 2040 paper jam light is blinking but there is no jam. the printer sounds like it dies out everytime it tries to print.


Often the paper jam light will stay on when the *back* paper jam door is not cleared.

Open up the back of your printer. There is a 2nd door behind this door that you can pull open. If there is a paper in this section, pull it out and it should clear your red light.

When clearing paper jams, clear the front first, and then if the red light is still on, you need to check the back hidden door for another piece of paper.
