This MAY be a solution.. I had the same problem with my ip1800, and had read in another post to shake the printer vigorously upside down. I know it sounds wild, but for a lot of people, it dislodged something that was messing with the paper mechanism. As for my own printer, it dislodged this huge lint looking thing, which i removed with a pair of needle nose pliers, and when I turned the power back on, no more flashing yellow light ! I hope it works for you too

It cant load paper

Possible that the INDETECT paper sensor is not working. Sometimes this can be an opto sensor, If so you need to remove and check using a multimeter and replace the component.
It can also be due to a jammed roller, a failed motor drive or a faulty motherboard .

Dont know where to put paper in

The input paper tray for the iP1800 is accessed by opening the door / tray in the top of the printer. The door serves as the back support for taller paper. The paper thickness lever below the output roller needs to be adjusted depending on paper thickness. Most papers require that it be kept in the left position.

Paper jammed but no paper is jammed.

Sounds like something has fallen into the paper path. Use a flashlight and small mirror to look down the slot where the paper goes. You may have to use a straightened paper clip or the like to help remove the obstruction.

Paper in printer is jammed up

What specific model of printer do you have?
If it's jamming, make sure paper type is identical. Make sure the quantity is enough for the printer tol hold. Try to reduce the amount and clean the rollers of the paper tray/feeder using alcohol.
