HP Photosmart C4180 All in One It's come up with a paper jam warning. " Claer paper jam, then press OK" I've been right through every thing, front and back as per the ops manula and can't find any major or small jam. Pressing OK dosen't respond. Turning off/on just comes back to paper jam press ok. Any ideas or is the printer heading for the bin?

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,

My hp photosmart printer is saying Error carriage jam, open dorr clear carriage jam and then press Ok to continue. Which door should I open and how do I clear the carriage jam? Linda


Without any paper in the machine I would try powering off and powering on. Lifting the scanner lid will clear so the carrige goes back to the correct side of the printer. Even rebooting the printer and loading the software will sometimes cause the carriage to go back to where it was supposed to be.

PAPER JAM WITH NO PAPER


This may be caused by a dirty sensor. Disconnect power supply, open the printer and clean everything. You may use toilet paper. Be careful not to leave fragments of toilet paper inside the printer.

Cannot open rear door


I figured it out! I yanked the tab to the right extremely hard, thereby opening the door. Obviously, "press in the tab" was incorrect in HP's manual.
