Re: My HP Deskjet 882C no longer pulls paper from the...
I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy
paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print
button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it
will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I
have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this
way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps.Bud

Probably the way to go is to remove the toner and tray 2. lay down a bunch of newspapers on the floor (not a rug). The printer is unplugged at this point. Turn the printer over and lay it down. Take a sheet of paper and fold it lengthwise in quarters. Manually feed the folded paper into the paper path from the bottom. Push and pull the paper thru the paper path. The object is to push the small piece out where you can reach it.
It's not the easiest thing to explain. You always want to go in the direction that the paper moves thru the printer. This is why you start feeding from the bottom. You know that there is a piece of plastic that is above the feed roller for tray 1 that you can pull out to give you more room.
1.1 Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge to fade away before putting your hands or metal tools inside the chassis. 2.Step 2 Pin down the exact location of the jam. The three hot spots for a jam are the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and the print carriage, or between the print carriage and the output tray. 3.Step 3 Take off the front paper tray if the sheet got stuck while it was still in the front area of the printer. If the sheet jammed here, you should be able to see most of the paper. 4.Step 4 Pull on the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a chunk of it deeper in the machine. 5.Step 5 Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed tray area and the print carriage of the all-in-one printer. Carefully remove the jammed paper from the machine. 6.Step 6 Use the carriage access door to reach a jam further inside the all-in-one printer. You may need to move the print carriage out of your way to clear the jam. 7.Step 7 Return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.
Yes you can manually remove the paper. It can be pulled out from the feed area (pulled out backwards).
To clear the jam status....
Take the back cover off, there is a reset switch in the top left hand lock hole. Push a pen (or similar) into this hole, the switch will give slightly and be the same depth as the others.
You need a separation pad for the paper tray. It would be advised to replace the feed rollers at the same time. In the short term, you can pull out the paper tray, and on the very front (where the paper feeds out), you will see a black (or gray) rubber pad that is spring loaded. Scrub this pad with a little alcohol, on a cloth. You can even rough it up a little with a brillo pad. This should improve the feeding for the short term.
1. Open the upper front door. 2. Grasping the print cartridge by the hand grip, pull it towards you and slightly up to lift it out of the holder. 3. Then pull the cartridge straight out towards you. 4. Locate the feed roller release lever and gently push it back to release the pressure on the paper. 5. Pull the paper out. CAUTION! The paper may be covered with unfused toner, which can stain garments. 6. If you see no paper jammed under the cartridge, remove paper tray 1. The paper may not have fed all of the way into the printer. 7. Reinstall the paper tray and the toner cartridge. 8. Close the upper front door.
1. Prepare your doc/file for printing. 2. Insert card stock with narrow side of stock in slot in back of printer until it hits rollers and stops. Don't force in any card stock thicker than max. rated. 3. Change printer setup to feed from rear. 4. Print.
Depending on what software you print from, you may need to change this each time you print if you intend to keep printing from that "tray."
You have accidentally pulled the back paper tray. Even when pulled a little, this tray tells the printer to deliver output to the back. This is useful when printing on heavy, or thick paper. Just push it back all the way down to it's original place.
