Question about HP Photosmart C7280 Printer

2 Answers

Paper Jam I have an HP Photosmart 7280. I was trying to add more paper and I guess it got wrinkled on the way in. I removed the back part and took as much paper out as I could, but there's still some paper that is visible (but not reachable) through the ink cartridge door. What should I do?

    Susquehanna9, I am in KL Malaysia and my wife is in Sydney Australia. She has reported a problem similar to yours but has not provided any specifics other than "the paper tore off inside the printer". How did you fix your problem?

    Many thanks,

Try to get a pair of HEMOSTATS from a nurse or dentist for pulling jam bits.

HP Photosmart C6280 paper jam--won't print (of course), message reads 'add paper to main tray'


Please try this to clear the paper jam

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Left corner of paper wrinkles when printing


I know several reasons, and they are all related to an obstruction of some sort..whether it be a small piece of paper along the paper path, to something slightly bent, or broken...impossible to say for sure

Did you try this from HP.

I also suggest you remove the back door & clean the wheels with a clean no lint water dampend rag. Replace the door.

Hi Mose,

I never faced this problem any time , but could find a solution for you which i think will be helpful.

The paper jam error state occurs if the printer detects a paper at the platen after attempting to eject paper to the out tray. Clear the paper path.
<Power and Resume>
1. Turn the printer OFF and back ON to allow the printer to clear the jam.
(If the paper remains jammed, turn it back OFF and follow the remaining steps.)
2. Open the top cover and remove the OUT tray.
3. Pull the jammed paper out of the printer by grasping the middle section of the paper.
4. Remove all torn pieces from the paper path.
5. Remove any wrinkled or torn paper from the IN tray.
6. Reload the paper stack.
7. Replace the OUT tray and close the top cover.
8. Turn the printer ON.

Hope this answers your problem, Please let me know by providing your valuable feed back

Thanks,
Robosoft.
