Dear jabir,
Please check if any other material is present in paper path from paper tray to platen unit (paper eject assembly). It's usually caused by this.

My HP 6500A plus is giving an error code 0.6101 bed. Do you know what the problem is, is it practical to repair.

Do you mean the error 0x6101bed? This appears to be an error with the printer carriage or the sensors that detect paper in the trays. Unplug the USB cable if you are using that connection before trying the steps below.

Some people have solved the problem by turning off the printer and then removing the photo feed and output trays. Also remove any extras like a duplexer if you have one. Put in a sheet of plain paper. Then turn on the printer and quickly press the Menu button. Find the menu item for printer reports and select print status report (or a similar item). Push the paper gently into the printer pickup until the pickup spool catches the paper. Press Cancel and see if the printer ejects the sheet.

Some people have found that adding a few extra power on/off power cycles (5-6) helps. Then try to to move the print cartridges (gently - do not force anything) while the printer is off. While you are trying to move the print cartridges, check for any foreign objects in the printer. (A small piece of paper can cause the bed error.)

Make sure that the printer is on a firm surface wider than the printer. Pick it up and put it down again to shake things loose inside. At some point, the printer will go into a initialization step if you have solved the internal issue.

If these don't help, it may be that the internal frame and the rail that the printer cartridges ride on is bent. Then the solution is probably to replace the printer.

I hope this helps.

Printed 47 pages, paper for page 48 started to feed incorrectly & was yanked out. However, LCD keeps saying paper jam even though entire paper was retrieved. Turning machine off, on, examined for any...

More likely especially if the paper was pulled out backwards, that the paper sensor just before the platen roller is bent or broken. When you pull paper back up thru the feeder it gets caught on this sensor tab and it gets bent, holding it up just like a paper scrap would. If it's broken or you can't locate it to bend it straight, you will need a shop to repair your printer.

Either an obstruction, dirty rollers, paper guides not snug to the paper, or something is bent.
