If you don't see a paper jam it's a carriage axis error. Try cleaning and then lubricating the bar well. Next look at the belt turn around on the non-motor end of the belt. You'll find a bearing in the spring loaded pully that wears out or ceases up. If the drag / friction is too high you will get the 86.01 error. I have included a link to a free copy of the HP Service Manual to help you get through it. The error is discussed on page 2-18 and 2-19.

Hope that helps you.

Hi, Agree with the above that the problem will probably be caused by either dirty rails on the machine which will need cleaned with a damp, lint free cloth and then lightly silicone oiled or a dirty encoder strip.

If this does not fix the problem, it is probably the line sensor which needs replaced.

In addition to this, the so called encoder strip may be dirty and needs cleaning. The encoder strip has many tiny lines on it, that the carriage sensor counts to determine its location in the printer environment. If this strip gets dirty, the carriage sensor will read several lines as one and in the end it will try to go past the carriage path; when obstructed it perceives this as a paper jam.

The encoder strip is located just behind the slider rod, the shiny rod that guides the carriage back and forth. The encoder strip should be cleaned with a lint-free cloth wetted with clean and luke-warm water (no water allowed to drip into the printer!). Be careful not to pull hard on the encder strip, it can VERY easilly break or jump off its attachment points!

First gently slide the carriage over to the left and clean the right part of the encoder strip, then slide the carriage over to the right and continue with the left side of the strip. Note: Always clean FROM the right side to the left, since the strip is attached to a hardpoint on the right side of the printer and to a leaf spring on the left side. According to Murphy's Law, pulling on the leaf spring WILL make the encoder strip jump off the hardpoint hook on the right side, causing a mess to get it back! (not supported...)

But in many cases this solves the 86.01 error message, hope it does this time as well.

Paper keeps jamming in fuser, inner door and tray, can firmware upgrade fix this, its a c534dn


A paper jam as you describe could be caused by the following:

The fuser is defective and causing the jam.
The tray has a problem and it is not picking up the paper properly which causes a timing problem that results in a jam.
A bad sensor is stopping the printer from being able to tell if the right size paper is being fed through the printer.

Try printing from the manual tray to eliminate a problem with the standard paper tray. If it still jams it is very possible that your fuser has an issue and will require replacement. Are there any errors in the error log?

Mt HP Photosmart C6380 keeps wadding up the paper and gets jammed. It then says out of paper and when I clear it and press OK, it crinkles the paper to death. Please tell me how to fix this. There is...


Hp printer paper jam error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

HP PSC 1610 - Keep getting paper jam error with no paper jam.


Hi there ok Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Printer keeps on jamming paper


Dear all,
I will try to help you. Paper jam error may be caused by some possibilities. So, please notice this indication:
  • If the printer status is READY immediately after Power ON then Paper Jam Error message appears while feeding the paper: Sheet Feeder Unit is faulty or any other material (such as broken paper) present inside paper path blocking paper end to reach paper feed sensor.
  • If Paper Jam Error messages appears immediately after Power ON: Paper feed sensor or logic board is faulty
Corrective action:
  • Remove the material from paper path
  • Replace Sheet Feeder Unit
  • Replace Paper Feed Sensor / Logic Board
Please rate me as Fixya if you find this useful for you. Thanks.

Paper Jam error


Try feeding paper from the front, if it works, your paper pickup rollers maybe having problems (dusty/worn-out).

Always paper jam.


Check to see if something isn't blocking the paper path.

You could try cleaning the feed rollers as well.
