    Paper jam?


    Check Paper light flashes but there isn't a paper related problem The check paper light may also flash if there are other problems. Verify the following conditions:
    • Verify that the print cartridge door is closed.
    • The print carriage may be jammed, follow these steps to correct the problem:
      1. Open the print cartridge access door. If the print carriage can move, it should move to center. If the print carriage stays all the way left, unplug the power cord and then plug it back in. This will reset the unit and may allow the print carriage to move from the left.
      2. Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
      3. Remove both print cartridges.
      4. Move the print carriage left and right slightly to verify that the print carriage will move freely. If the print carriage will not move freely, check for obstructions.
      5. Close the print cartridge access door.
      6. Plug the power cord back in.
      7. After the all-in-one initializes, the print cartridge light will flash. Open the access door and install the print cartridges.
      8. Close the print cartridge access door. If the problem returns, remove the print cartridges and wipe the electrical contacts before reinstalling them.
    • Try to make a copy. If the all-in-one pulls in paper but cannot make a copy, there may be a problem with the scanner mechanism. Contact HP for assistance.
