Question about HP DeskJet 712c InkJet Printer
When I try to print on my deskjet 712C, the paper gets a dent on the top and often crumples up in the printer. If it prints it starts in the middle of the page and the bottom is all smeared.
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

Tips for a great answer:
If your printer reports paper jam for any reason, you may need to go through the Clearing paper jam procedure for your printer to respond to the print command again. So follow the procedure below to do this.
Even if you are not a technical person, you can conveniently clear paper jams. All you need is to follow the set of procedures outlined below.
1 Put off the printer and unplug it from its power source.
2 Open all the covers/shutters on the printer (usually you will find one in the front or top and one at the back of the printer).
3 (If the printer is a DeskJet, otherwise ignore this step) Now pull out the cartridge carefully and place it on safe surface. (Be careful not to place it where it may slide and fall. This could damage the cartridge)
4 Site the paper that has jammed and pull it out in the opposite direction of its movement. Do not pull in the direction it was coming out. (Pulling the paper in the opposite direction is important for the printer's mechanism. Printer must be off). Never pull out paper from a printer when the printer is powered on.
5 (If the printer is a DeskJet, otherwise ignore this step) Return the cartridge gently and press it firmly inside so that you here it snap inside.
6 Close all covers at the top, front or back.
7 Power on your printer and you should be able to print again.
