Question about HP Photosmart C7280 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Paper feed jams

Automatic paper feed keeps jamming so I can't fax, scan or make copies of multiple pages. Help please!!! C7280 is All-in-One Inkjet - Mine doesn't seem to want to "grab" on the left side (facing front) Have looked in opened back and see nothing unusual or broken. Paper tray seems to be all the way in, so why this constant tearing and crumbling of the paper I have to grab from around the rollers in the back? It seems to be hitting something on the top as it tries to start to print and continue forward. Help!

    Exactly same problem and symptoms.

  • cabgal Jan 23, 2009

    While feeling around in the back of the printer after the duplex cartridge was removed, I noticed that I could grab a part at the end of the paper tray with one of my fingers and it would move about 1/4" toward the back of printer. It seemed like that piece had slid forward, out of place, and I put it back where it should have been. The paper was then a little closer to the feeder wheels. After that, the paper fed properly, no more jams. I don't know why I couldn't do the same thing from the front with the tray, but no matter how carefully I shoved the paper tray, it never did move that part that I moved with my finger. Been working for 10 days!!!

Normal 0 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 over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

The rollers on the feeder can go bad and the best way to solve it is to get a new complete assembly. Check the website under your make and model for the assembly. YOu might also want to check for paper jam

Paper Jam C84


Was the printer feeding multiple sheets at the same time, so that the sheer thickness of the wad caused the jam? If so, look into the slot where you load paper (this is called the automatic sheet feeder or ASF). You should see a small roller with a rubber coating. This is what pulls the sheets into the printer. Put one sheet of paper into the ASF and do a print. The Windows test print facility is convenient for this: start-control panel-printer and faxes, then right click your printer icon and select properties, then test print). If this works OK, put two pages into the ASF, then three etc. Observe what happens. If at some point more than one page is pulled in, it infers that the ASF is not working properly, in which case you will need to consult a technician (or have a go yourself at dismantling the printer). If the one-two-three-four etc page test doesn't produce a multiple feed, all it probably means, is that static electricity is holding the sheets tightly together. Make sure when you put a wad of paper into the ASF it has been fanned.

Report back on what you find, or if you have any queries on the above.
