NO, the roller is not worn out. Dissemble the printer and remove anything in the way. Reassemble and try only one piece of paper to start.〈=en&cc=us

Paper is not jaam but printer showing paper jaam again & again.

Several things can cause a jam. I can suggest checking the paper path very well, especially if you have had a jam in the past, a little piece of paper there could be triggering a sensor and causing the message. Another thing might be rollers worn out or dirty. If the rollers rotate 3 times and no pick up happen it will show paper jam, try a humid tissue to clean it.

Says there is a paper jam but there isnt - have looked and looked - can I overide it?

Possible problems:
- Tiny paper or something is stuck in your printer.
- Your printer roller may have dirt on it.

-There may be a very tiny bit of paper stuck somewhere - look very carefully. Also, open all areas and then close them - sometimes a printer has to have that before it resets from a jam. Check your paper to see if it is being grabbed by the rollers. if they are dirty or worn, the paper will not catch and the printer thinks it is jammed. wipe the rollers with a bit of alcohol on a paper towel (barely damp) if that is the case.

Printer does not pick up paper or complains cartridge jam

Depending on the printer it it could be the transfer rollers that need cleaning or replacing. Due to the paper residue on them. Also this could be worn gears in the printer. Over time the rollers get crystallized or glazed and fail to move the paper forward. Many manufacturer have resolve this issue with using different materials to minimize this but still there is an issue from extended usage. Call the manufacturer or a qualified printer technician to check the printer.

The paper won't advance enough to print in our HP officejet 7580

Look for little pieces of paper that get stuck in the rollers, also verify that the gears and roller didn't get misaligned when you cleared the jam.
Good Luck,

Printers that jam usually have worn feed rollers, some where in the machine, or a bad sensor. If worn feed rollers are the problem the paper usually jams in different locations in the machine. If a sensor is bad the paper usually jams in the same spot each time paper is fed into the machine. A new machine does not have worn rollers, but could have a broken sensor. It sounds like the a roller might be worn. There is a company called Tech Support that use to sell a cleaning fluid for paper feed rollers. You can use alcohol but alcohol dries out rubber, but you can use it to diagnose the problem. Clean all visible rollers. Especially the rollers that the paper jams between.

Printer jam

there are 2 possibilities, it is either the printer has small bits of paper on the rollers in the printer, or the printer drivers needs an update to make it run again.

you may open the printer up, inspect the rollers (paper path, where the paper goes in and out) then check if the rollers rubber coatings are worn out or damage, or has pieces or papers on them.

in installing the drivers, just access the HP's download site and download the latest drivers for your printer.

HP printer

Most likely worn pads & rollers, I'm afraid. Kits are available though. Not too dear.
