SOURCE: Paper Jam Error on HP 2015

For whatever reason the printer internal programming became corrupt showing that there is a paper jam. After checking the paper path and a quick can of air sprayed into the tracks, I proceeded to attempt a Cold Reset.

1) Remove the paper tray.
2) Remove toner cartridge.
3) Unplug USB.
3) While plugged in to power, turn off the printer, hold down the 'GO' button and power it back on. Continue to hold for more than 5 seconds but less than 15.
4) Reinstall the tray (be sure to check the paper level indicator is operating when you add paper to the tray. The lever should move up as it fills with paper)

Reconnect the USB cable (make sure you are using a thick USB cable and not a cheap thin one, very important. Make sure the printer is not plugged into a backup batter either) Never plug a printer into backup power.

I noticed that the computer did not recognize the device when connected which prompted me to contact HP support.

HP Support is shipping out Item # CE517AB - Font/DIMM Program for me to install in the printer to most likely reinstall the firmware.

I will post back if this works to flash the firmware or just waste some time.

SOURCE: HP deskjet F380 - 'status: paper jam'. There is no paper jam!

Unplug the power cord and while doing that make sure printer is powered on i mean do not turn off the printer using the power button. When you unplug the power cord than press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Than release the power button and connect the power cord and then try to print.

Try This :
Connect the printer directly to the wall outlet ; not through any Power strip
Then Unplug the Power cable from the back of the printer
Keep on tapping the power cable for next 30 seconds
Plug in back the power cable;
Open the rear access door and you will get to see some rollers
Clean the rollers with a Lint free cloth Moistened with some distilled water
Try to do a copy if still it doesn works
Then Unplug the Power cable from the back of the printer
With one hand press and hold down the (#) and the (6) button and with the other hand plug in back the power cable ; it will do a Semifull reset on the printer; This will take some time ; Follow the instruction on the screen;
If still it doesn't work then you need to contact HP ;
The toll free no. for HP would be : 1-800-474-6836
They will replace the printer for you free of cost (No Charge if the printer is in warranty i.e within 1 yr of purchase)
Still you may check the link below for further issues:

Had the same problem Look into www.fixyourownorinter.com
Took the Formatter card out, BAKE for 8 minutes at 350F, let it cool, put it back in and VOILA! Put the card fase up and make sure (with screws) it does not touch the pan you used to bake it.
Good luck

Why can't I fix a false paper jam on my HP printer?


First, rechargeable cartridges are the bane of many HP models. I have never been fortunate enough to find one that works (and I have worked on many printers and computers over the years).
Second, I recommend that you double check and get some canned air to blow out the carriage and anywhere else you can reach without dis-assembly. Many times there is an extremely small piece of paper or even lint that will cause the paper jam signal to be sent and disable an otherwise perfectly fine printer.

Why do i have a false jam reading?


I understand that you're receiving what you believe to be a 'false' paper jam on your HP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One Printer. I would like to work with you today with resolving this issue. Paper jams can be real or false. The product might report a paper jam even when there is no jammed paper. A false paper jam may also be the result of having a bad paper jam at a point in time and that bad jam causing a hardware issue to the paper sensor or rollers. I am going to provide you with some additional troubleshooting steps that apply to both real and false paper jams. You did state that you already checked the paper pathway inside the printer and failed to find any evidence of paper being stuck, but please run the step-by-step troubleshooting below, even if you have already run some of the steps.

Here are the steps for clearing the path:

Hi,

HP's All-In-One printers are notorious for their paper jams, and they are usually caused by small bits of paper left in the paper path - and these can be hard to find. HP has come up with these special instructions for clearing the paper jams. Please click on the following link:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=no&docname=c00651302&dlc=en

Be patient while following these instructions and it might also be helpful to have a small flashlight to help you inspect the cartridges and internal workings.

Good luck. If you found this useful, please leave feedback.

Thanks,

Paper jam even when there is no paper in the printer


I had same problem. Have you checked for paper-jam from the back, as sometimes a small piece of paper may be still jammed in. Pull open the door and check. Do not pull jammed paper from the front as this disturbs the rollers and printing process. I di this, and have had to buy a new printer.!!
