  1. See the product user guide for information about clearing jams from the printer.
  2. Make sure that the paper guides are adjusted properly. Slide the guides against the sides of the stack in the main input tray or the priority input tray to center the page. Make sure that the guides are not adjusted too tightly.
  3. The media input tray might be too full. Remove some of the sheets.
  4. Make sure that the media being used meets specifications. Click here to refer to "Media specifications" for more information .
  5. Make sure that the media being used is not wrinkled, folded, or damaged.
  6. Make sure that the printer is clean. See the product user guide for information about cleaning the printer.
  7. If printing to the straight-through output path, close and open the door again to make sure that the green release levers are closed.
  8. The paper might not have been removed from the main input tray before the tray was refilled. Always remove paper form the main input tray before refilling it.
  9. Output capacity might have been exceeded in the paper output bin. Do not allow more than 125 sheets of 20-lb (75 g/m2) bond weight paper to fill the paper output bin (less for heavier paper).
  10. The pickup roller or printer separation pad might be dirty or damaged. Clean or replace the part. (See the product user guide for information about cleaning and replacing the pickup roller and printer separation pad.)

Look for a "jam door" at the rear of your printer (if so equipped).

You will need : 1 can of "compressed air", 1 container of ether rubbing alcohol or some form of Goo-Gone.

1. In short blasts (NOT LONG ONES) blow through the paper path. Open any paper jam access trays before doing this so the bits escape.

2. Using a SMALL amount of Goo-Gone and either a Q-Tip or small dust free cloth, clean all the rubber rollers on the bars. Cheap paper leaves a fine dust and after time will make the wheels very slick.

Doing this every other month can save you from jams and is just a good maintenance plan for your printer.

Also don't use 'cheap paper'.

Good luck! :)

How can I prevent paper jam 0207 on canon 2230


Although paper jams occur because of dirty pickup rollers I have found that jams occur frequently because of solenoids in the paper feed mechanism (the assembly that the paper trays fit into). There are two of them and over time the damping foam on the levers get sticky causing the lever to operate late which causes the jam. As a fix I remove the damping foam and put insulation tape on the lever making sure the solenoid works by using a 12v bench psu before reassembling. You will need service manual because Paper Feed mechanism removal is a little complex.

Paper feed problems in Canon Laser Jet Printers are caused by these solenoids mainly in Duplex mode. P3005dn's etc.
Hope this helps solve yr problem.

When i turn my ofice jet 4110 on, rhe yelow light comes on for approximately -3 seconds and is immediately replaced by the flashing red light which stays on no mattr what i try.


There are usually 2 culprits for this. Try these first and they might solve your problem.

1. ink cartridge jam - sometimes the ink cartridge is loose. just remove it and put it back.
2. paper jam (or other stuff) - sometimes some paper/paper clip/ rubber band gets jammed in the paper feed

Try also looking at the PC/laptop which it is connected to. There is a chance that a message will show the actual printer problem.

My HP laser printer 1300 had a paper jam


When printing or copying, paper will not pick up or feed into the HP LaserJet 1000, 1200 or 1300 series product causing paper jams or wrinkled output. Symptoms are as follows:
  • The pickup roller will spin and try to pick paper.
  • The paper will partially feed into the product accompanied by a crackling, crunching noise then jamming.
  • The paper may feed all the way through the paper path accompanied by a crackling, crunching noise. The output will be skewed and wrinkled.
SOLUTION: Reposition the black Mylar light shields back into the proper position.
  1. Unplug the power cord from the product.
  2. Remove the paper and paper input tray.
  3. Slide hands, palms side up, into the paper input tray cavity (see Figure 1) until the fingertips reach the end of the cavity. Figure 1: Paper input tray cavityc00068598.jpg
  4. Bend fingers up to push the black Mylar light shields back into place. The proper position of the black Mylar light shield will be flat.
  5. Reconnect the power cord.
  6. Print a self-test/configuration page to verify product is functioning correctly.

When I turn my printer on (HP J4680) it always tries to load a paper and immediately jams (even if I cycle power an unplug). I cannot use it anymore....


If you disconnect the printer from the computer and your printer stops trying to feed paper when you turn it back on, then this solution likely won't help you.
  1. Disconnect the printer from the computer.
  2. Disconnect the power supply.
  3. Turn the printer back on.
  4. If the printer tries to load paper and jams again, your printer is trying to recover from a paper jam, so try this video. I'm betting if you follow the instructions in this video, you'll resolve a jam in the printer and solve your problem.

Printer printed paper with crushing sounds, but


You need to continually press the paper feed button (next to power) while applying gentle pulling pressure to manually feed the paper all the way through the printer. Hope this helped

Paper jam in HP 4255 office jet all in one printer


Clearing paper jams
Paper jams can be real or false. The unit may report a paper jam even when there is no jammed paper. The solution to a real paper jam or a false paper jam is the same.
CAUTION:
Jammed paper must be removed using the rear access door with the power cord disconnected to avoid mechanical damage. Do not remove jammed paper from the front of the unit.
  1. Turn off the HP product and turn it around 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 2: Removing the rear access door

  1. 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. Click How to Buy on this page to order replacement parts.
  2. From the rear access door opening, remove the jammed paper.
  3. 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.
  4. Reinstall the rear access door.
  5. Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on.
Preventing paper jams
The following information will help prevent paper jams from occurring:
  • Never use paper that is torn or wrinkled.
  • If you are having problems using paper that has already been printed on once (recycling), replace it with new 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 is not locked.
  • Every six months to one year, clean the paper feed rollers with a rag lightly moistened with 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.

Paper jam


I too have this infuriating problem and the reason has already been pinpointed very well it is indeed the front rubber pinch cam not grabbing the paper well. I have approached this problem from another angle... under the front sprung loaded flap on the paper tray
there are two compression springsapprx 1/2" in dia. Gently prise apart the 2 flap pivot (on the extended arms) to gain access to the springs ,pull out the springs and either replace them with slightly stronger ones or pull the existing springs apart to retension them and pop them back (long-nosed pliers or tweezers) this will restore the spring tension lost during use with the rubber pinch cam.

My paper keeps jamming how do i solve it?


you need a new paper pickup feed roller- about $5.00 and easy to replace. This is generally the one part that wears out on these printers. see this article.
