Question about HP Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

HP laser jet 4L printer will not pull paper thru.

The paper gets caught on a little wheel on the left hand side of the printer, and it jams and gets caught. This has been happening off and on for a long time, but now the printer will simply not pull the paper through. It gets caught somehow on what appears to be a wheel. I rip the pieces out and try again, but the same thing happens.

Hpc6280 paper caught internally


This information comes from the User Manual on pages 111-112:
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01150745.pdf

Internal paper jams on this machine tend to be in the two-sided printing accessory.

To clear a paper jam from the two-sided printing accessory:
1. Turn off the printer
2. Press in the tabs on the left and right side of the two-sided printing accessory, and remove it by pulling out from the center of the printer.
3. Gently pull the paper out of the rollers. If the paper has torn, check the rollers and wheels for small, torn pieces of paper
4. If it's still not clear, open the two-sided printing accessory by pulling up on the tabs, and remove any paper stuck inside it, then close the accessory by pressing down on the tabs until they lock into place
5. Replace the two-sided printing accessory by pushing it forward until it snaps back into place
6. Turn on the printer, and verify that it works by pushing OK to continue the job it jammed on.

HP Laser Jet 4L jammed at rear.Cannot release paper


Open rear cover. Press green release lever upward. Push paper backward (out of top toward back) When all paper out of upper roller, pull remaining paper straight back. It will move easily.

I'm sure this is too late for the original post, but it might help someone who comes along later (like me)

The paper is not feeding through. it is getting caught on one side, then jamming


the roller on one side isn't picking the paper while the one on the other side is. Hwnce the uneven pull on the paper force the paper sideways and then jams.

This is usually caused by dust in the interior of the printer so try this:-

This is sort of scenario could be caused by dust inside the printer. Dust prevents the rollers from having a firm grip on the paper while picking paper. When one roller has a firm grip and rolls the paper well while the other doesn’t, jam/crumpling results. So I will suggest you get a long handle brush and try to reach as far inside the printer as possible and brush (from the back and front; if you have a blower please use it as well). This, if properly done should do it. Brush especially the rollers etc.

Dell 3000CN Laser Priner


Removed the fuser unit and also removed the left hand side panel to access the gearing mechanism.

Manually rotated the gearing a number of times thru 360 degress. This appears to have cleared whatever was causing the printer to detect a paper jam although there was no obvious sign of bits of paper or even dust build up.

Paper Jam


With printer unplugged, open lid and pull paper out by hand. Depending on where paper is jammed, you may have to lift out toner cartridge first. Be careful when pulling out paper, especially if paper is crumpled up. Sometimes it is easier to pull paper from back of printer as if it were continuing to print, and others it is easier to pull reverse from the front.
