    Read the manual. It was back of the printer, the one latch was loose and wasn't closed tight. That's why it wouldn't print! I never checked the back! How stupid can you get!?

How to clear paper jam in hp photosmart C270 printer


There does not appear to be a Model C270 in the hp photosmart printer models. Do you mean it displayed a "C270 error code" in what Model No. Printer? The error code C270 indicates a paper jam/misfeed error.You possibly have paper remnants still inside Machine. You could remove drawers from machine, and look inside for remnants of paper. Maybe try turning machine off and on using red switch at knee level. If there is truly nothing blocking a jam sensor, then problem is likely a bad sensor. 99% of the time HP does not make replacement parts available to out-of-warranty printers. That's why I had to dump my C5550 HP Photosmart All-in-one printer; my office machine repair business could not get the replacement sensor! Remember: "Brother model" offer free toll-free phone tech service for the LIFE OF THE PRINTER! That's why I bought a Brother this time!

Hi,
Many printers can detect where the movable partitions in a paper tray are. If they get moved from the "Letter" size mark, the printer will detect that and act accordingly. Make sure if your printer has the movable partition it/they are in the correct position.
You can download the user manual for HP Photosmart Pro B8850 from here http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/540937-REG/HP_Hewlett_Packard_Q7161A_Photosmart_Pro_B8850_Inkjet.html

Do a hard reset on the printer and uninstall/reinstall all of the software that came with unit and see if that does the trick.

If that does not resolve the issue then you have a hardware problem.

HP Photosmart C6280 paper jam--won't print (of course), message reads 'add paper to main tray'


Please try this to clear the paper jam

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Our printers epson c42ux red light is on stand still


A permanently on red light can mean several things. If the green light is also ON, it means that you heve no paper loaded, an empty or faulty ink cartridge, or a jammed paper feed. I presume you have loaded paper. You say you have changed the ink cartridges. Note that BOTH cartridges must have ink for the printer to work. The simplest way to check this, or to check for a faulty cartridge, is to try another new set of cartridges - compatible cartridges are very cheap on EBay - about £3 a set in the UK.

To check for jammed paper, remove the paper from the sheet feeder and look carefully inside it, and inside the printer (lift the lid) for scraps of jammed paper. Remove any you see. Press the ink/paper feed button and see if it goes through a paper feed cycle. Reinsert the paper and try it again. If it works, turn the printer off and on again, and it should now be OK.

If the green light is OFF, it means you have a Carriage problem, i.e. something is fouling the print head when it tries to go from side to side. Check this with manual movement. Turn the printer off. After a few seconds, turn it back on again. As soon as the print head moves, pull the power cord out of the back of the printer. You should now be able to move the print head across to the left side (gently!) by hand, then move it back to the right and see if it will go fully into its parking bay at the right hand end. You should be able to tell if someting is hindering its movement anywhere.

Please report back with a new comment if none of this solves the problem.

When I print a photo there is streaking on the photo paper. How do I clean the printer which is what I think is the problem? Thank you for your time.


Hi,
Remove the cartridge outside look for the place where ink is dispensed If you find any dust on clean with a tissue paper and replace it.  If you don't find any dust on it clean the roller.  Then take a test print.
