HP Photosmart 8250 Paper jam error

I have an HP Photosmart 8250 printer and I love this printer! However, it has recently started to make me crazy. As I try to print, it keeps telling me "Paper jam. Clear jam and then press OK." I have had the front and back covers off, power repeatedly disconnected, and I cannot find any paper jammed anywhere. When I turn it back on, it goes through the device maintenance, and then gives me the same message again. What to do???

    HP 8250 has never been able to pickup the paper since I bought it brand new. It has been essentially worthless to me. Any one know how to fix it? When I force feed the paper and it actually picks it up, it prints fine, but it can be very difficult it to force feed it. Sometime it takes me 20 mins to print two sheets.

My hp photosmart 8250 keep showing paper jam but there's no paper jam anywhere. How can I get it to function properly?


Make sure there is no paper stuck inside in the paper. may be there is small piece of paper stuck inside
Just unplug the power and open the cover and remove the toner or cartridges from the printer and manually try to roll the roller and remove the paper.
Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Thanks.
Have a good day.

HP 2575 printer - paper jam message


Resetting the product may help with some false error messages. Press power button to turn printer off, unplug the power cord, wait a few seconds, plug it back in, press power button to turn printer back on. Any luck?

Photo paper jam what thickness of photo paper should i use for a hp photosmart 8250 i keep getting jammed up and think the paper is to thick


Be sure and check the printing properties before printing. make sure that you specify the kind and thickness of the paper. This way the printer expects that thickness when printing. Sometimes, glossy paper makes the printer jam easily. Try putting around 25 regular paper on bottom of special paper and see if that helps.
