    That stacking was not the problem. I have never overloaded and always fan paper.

  • thotsonltd Jan 05, 2009

    Yes. While cleaning, I also found two bits of paper jammed. Learned something new today. A great product I've had for years. Thanks much.

Hi there
Look for any objects that could be causing the the jam, for example pencils, paperclips etc.
Also clean the rollers and feed mechanisms with rubbing alcohol to get rid of and partly dried ink which could be causing the paper to jam

good luck and kind regards

If the paper is inserted to much on the inner side forcibly it gets into paper jams again n again.or if the gears are worn out this paper jam problem causes.in that case you will have to service/clean the printer internally to resolve this problem.this is common.

Make sure there is not too much paper loaded, have only the half of the current load in the bay. Make sure the paper is a little loose, if inserted too tightly may cause paper jams.

Can't print pictures from my laptop. The printer always says paper jam but there isn't one


"Paper Jam" issues are common with printers. They most often occur right after there has been a paper jam. Most people (not necessarily YOU), don't take the time to read how to properly clear a paper jam in their printers and often yank the jammed sheets backward thru the paper tray. Most times you should remove the cover in the back and pull the jam FORWARD out the rear, or if the jam made it close to the output tray, then FORWARD thru to the output tray. Pull sheets backward can cause two issues. It makes tearing the paper easier. This can result in tiny pieces being caught in places where the printer detect them as a jam. The other issue is that pulling backward can damage the feed rollers that pull the paper into the machine, as well as the mechanical sensors that detect paper jams. If you cannot find ANY shards of paper in the machine, you may have printer damage that results in the jam indication.

Why does my printer produce a paper jam when printing from laptop but does not jam when copying


When you order a print from the laptop, it gets the paper from the paper tray. When you copy, the paper has a slightly different path it follows to deliver your printed result. Try to put the document in the tray with the blank pages and see if it also jams! Let me know what you find out!!

Copier jamming/copy printing sideways


If it jams every copy then it sounds like the paper tray size is not programmed properly. This is also why the print is the wrong direction on the page. So the copier thinks it has 8.5X11 loaded like this > -- and instead it is loaded like this > |
I hope that makes sense. So this not only causes the print to be the wrong direction but since the paper dimension are different that what the machine expects then it throws the sensor timing off and results in a paper jam. So just open your paper trays and check the paper size dials in the trays to make sure they match the paper size AND direction of the paper loaded into that tray.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

The printer is constantly sending a message- 'paper jam'


HP Officejet 7200, 7300, and 7400 Series - 'Paper Jam: Clear jam, and then press Enter' Message Displays on the Control Panel Display
Issue
During printing, the paper becomes stuck in the all-in-one and the error message 'Paper Jam: Clear jam, and then press Enter' displays on the control panel display.
Solution
Use the following instructions to clear a paper jam from the product:
Step one: Check for and remove any loose paper from the In tray
Do not try to remove jammed paper from the In tray. First remove any loose paper from the In tray to avoid worsening the jam.
CAUTION: Always try to remove jammed paper from the back of the printer first to avoid mechanical damage.
Step two: Clear the jam from the back of the printer
Follow these instructions to clear jammed paper from the back of the product. If the product is equipped with a two-sided printing accessory, skip to that section.
Remove the rear access door to clear the paper jam

1. Remove the rear access door by pressing the buttons on the side of the door and pulling it toward you.
Figure 1: Removing the rear access door
Rear access door
2. Gently pull the jammed paper out of the rollers.
WARNING: If the paper tears while removing it from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the product. If all the pieces of paper are not removed from the product, more paper jams might occur.
3. Replace the rear access door. Gently push the door into the all-in-one until it snaps firmly into place.

Remove the two-sided printing accessory to clear the paper jam

1. Remove the two-sided printing accessory by pressing in the buttons on the sides and then pulling the accessory toward you.
Figure 2: Removing the two-sided printing accessory
2. Gently remove any jammed paper.
WARNING: If the paper tears while removing it from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the accessory. If all the pieces of paper are not removed from the accessory, more paper jams might occur.
3. Press the button on top of the two-sided printing accessory to open the door.
Figure 3: Opening the two-sided printing accessory door
4. Gently pull the jammed paper out of the rollers.
5. Close the accessory door.
6. Reinstall the two-sided printing accessory.

Step three: Clear the jam from the automatic document feeder (ADF)

1. Remove the document feeder tray from the product by gently pulling it.
2. Lift the cover of the automatic document feeder by pulling it outward.
Figure 4: Lifting the cover of the automatic document feeder
Automatic document feeder (ADF) door
3. Gently pull the jammed paper out of the rollers.
WARNING: In the rare occurrence of a severe paper jam, you might need to remove the face plate from the front of the automatic document feeder and lift the pick assembly to remove torn pieces of paper from deep inside the automatic document feeder.
4. Close the cover of the automatic document feeder, and then reattach the document feeder tray.

Step four: Verify that the print carriage can move freely
Follow these steps to try to move the print carriage.
CAUTION: Do not force the print carriage to move if it is out of plain view or feels stuck. Forcing it may damage the printer.

1. With the product turned on, open the print cartridge access door. The print carriage might try to move into the access area. If so, allow it to move to that position.
2. Without turning off the product, unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Unplug the power cord from the power source. The power cord must be unplugged to allow the parts to be moved by hand and to reset the paper feed mechanism, without the risk of an electrical shock.
3. Looking in through either the print cartridge access door or the output paper tray, make sure the print cartridges are locked into the carriage and have not come loose. Also, make sure that there are no obstructions under or around the carriage to block it from moving.
4. Make sure the print carriage can move freely across the width of the product by gently pushing the carriage to the left and then to the right. Clear any obstructions found.
You may have to reach through the output paper tray to access the print carriage.
5. Close the print cartridge access door and plug the power cord back to the back of the product. Plug the power cord into the power source.
6. Press the On button to turn on the product.

Step five: Reload and test the printer
After you have removed the jammed paper, make sure the product is still functioning properly.

1. Reload the product with plain paper.
2. Peform a self-test by pressing and holding the RESUME button on the control panel until the product begins printing. A test page prints.

Step six: Service the printer
If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.

HP 6200 without telling it to print, feeds and jams continually


I already encounter that problem lately. when you print your documents, the only response of the printer is paper jam. feed and jam.

try this tip if acceptable of your situation now.

only to do is copy your documents by edit button and then select all or highlight all that your going to print and then right to copy

and then, open a new documents page set up if needed.

and then print it without saving your file because that already save.

6110xi paper jam, or something worse?


Actually, the "paper jam" message can be displayed due to a variety of jam locations and other causes. Starting by looking in the back of the printer is a good first step, but you can have a jam in the front or even in the automatic document feeder (although that one should be apparent because it's sticking out the front end.

HP.com has a web page that goes into a lot of detail about where to look for a paper jam and what other conditions in your product might cause such a message to occur. The solutions are available as well. Take a look here:
