    Paper light came on. Check all doors and added paper. Light will not go out and printer will not print. Checked for paper dust or small pieces of jammed paper. Nothing.

This is a widely known problem with this printer and means the formatter board needs to be replaced. Save yourself the cost and headache of repairing and move on. The problem initially began as a random situation where I would have to turn the printer off and back on to get it to print.This eventually progressed to the problem you all are reporting which is the amber toner and jam lights on. I replaced the formatter board on mine and after one month the problem returned with the new formatter board needing replaced as well.

Of course, HP acts as if they've never heard of the problem. This company's integrity and quality has gone from number 1 to dead last.

There is a manual paper release on the bottom of the paper tray. If it gets stuck the paper does not rise to be picked up. Not sure why it registers an amber paper jam for it, but I taped my release open and put the tray back in carefully. Its been working for 2 days straight now.
My real issue was I had both the low toner and paper jam lights on solid and amber. I waited a few days to post this to make sure it worked. Worth a shot for you all. post back if it works for you .

Why does the data light blink then paper jam light goes on even with no paper in it


Most likely when you removed the paper jam a small piece of paper got jammed under one of the sensors. This is a very common problem. It is also possible depending on the model that you have dislodged one of the flags that activates sensors for paper travel. Check the back of the printer in the fuser area as these are the most commonly damaged sensors.

HP 2015dn paper jam light remains on; no paper jam


What is "cold" reset? Have you tried pulling the power cord out of the back of the PRINTER, wait one minute, and plug it back in. Wait another minute - that should do it.

HP LaserJet P2014 keeps showing paper jam when there is no paper jam. How to clear?


Hi,

If paper jam light is solid than checked paper path sensors and toner sensors and if they are aligned correctly than perform cold reset(Keep pressing and holding the green button) if still the issue persists and orange light remains solid than i m sure formatter board is faulty and we need to get formatter board replaced.

Thanks and Regards
