Have you tried a different brand of paper?. When choosing the paper try and select one which the sheets can slide easily over each other. I had loads of problems with multiple feeds and paper jams with a cheap paper. I then changed to a heavier 90gsm all in one paper from staples and have had no more problems since.(and i just chuck the paper in straight from the packet with no fanning etc)

My HP K550 officejet printer has recently been having some unusual jams in that it feeds a sheet of paper halfway through the printer w/o printing, then the green and yellow lights flash like a paper jam...


it seems that you are correct

Push the button on either side of the rear access panel or the duplex unit and remove the panel or unit.

Check inside the printer to make sure that the cam drawer is in the correct position, toward the front. If the cam drawer is not forward, pull the cam drawer into the correct position.

With all of the paper trays removed, check to ensure that the pick-up roller is up, not protruding down towards the tray, and no media is stuck to the roller.

Remove the printheads and check underneath the carriage and under the printheads themselves. Remove any jammed media.

It is sying i have a paper jam but there is no paper in it


There are two types of paper jams:

1) A jammed piece of paper at or near a sensor. Or a shred of paper is stuck under a sensor.
2) A paper feed operation that does not send paper into the printer will get reported as a jam it the paper does not reach a sensor in the time that is allotted to reach the sensor. The printer knows that the page is late and suspects a jam occurred prior to the sensor.
To determine if there is a “Pick” problem in the tray, place a mark (line or scribble) on the top sheet in the paper tray. Send a print operation to the printer. If a jam is reported, check the tray. If the marked page is still in the tray then you know the paper pick failed.
There are dozens of reasons for paper to fail to pick. The simplest fix to try is to remove the paper and fan it to remove any possible static charge causing the paper to stick together.

HP Office jet Pro L7380 will not pick up paper


Paper feed problems are very common with HP officejet printers but don't panic...

Few things to try..
1. Check that when the printer tries to feed paper the wheel is dropping down and making contact with the paper.

2. Make sure you have not set the paper guides so the paper is too tightly held... try loosening them

3. Watch this little video on how to fan-apart paper and try doing this to get some air in between the paper sheets.. This often resolves many of the problems.

4. Try changing the paper for something a bit coarser or even cheaper as HP printers can be a bit "Fussy" about the paper they will feed best...

Hope that helps...

My HPOfficejet Pro K550 will not print checks correctly


Hi crys smith -

for future refs: if the paper type and size (in this case checks) is set up correctly in the software that you are using to create the checks, perhaps it would help to check the printer settings. this link at hp support might help you then:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00494598&dlc=en&product=501369

it includes checking and changing print settings and stopping a print job. (-and no one wants to waste checks!) -JW50
