Hi there,

Paper can jam inside the printer for a number of reasons.

  • Open the cover to the printer and look inside to see if there are any pieces of paper or debris that may be blocking the print path.
  • Be sure to unplug the printer before touching anything internal to avoid electric shock. If there is something blocking the print path, remove it, close the printer, and try printing again.
  • You can also check inside the printer to see if any components have come loose.

SOURCE: How Do I load paper into my HP Officejet J4580 All

You really should read the printer manual.
You can download it from HP, here:

You load the paper in the main tray, in the front of the printer.

To load main tray
Insert the media print-side down along the right of the main tray. Make sure the stack of media aligns with the right and back edges of the tray, and does not exceed the line marking in the tray.
NOTE: Do not load paper while the device is printing.
2. Slide the media guides in the tray to adjust them for the media size that you have loaded.
3. Pull out the tray extender.

Okay this is going to be a not easy task for you.

You need a SERVICE manual these are not FREE they cost money and your answer here is for free so if i spent money on it I LOSS you win.

the issue here is yes there is screws you need to open to remove the plastics to get to the ROLLERS where the sensor are and where your jam may be.

Now not all the time is there paper left in there and a sensor may be broken thus you need to replace the sensor witch would cost a tad under what the printer would cost new. so think about that one. Now you need to find the service screws most are marked with arrows if yours is not then your printer is not USER serviceable and you will need a service manual to find the location points to undo this is why they pay me the big bucks to put food on my table and a roof over my head. Its not to hurt you in any way it just i paid $54,000 for educations cost witch was not easy to pay back make sense? I am not trying to throw you off with my BS commentary but your going to need to find the location points to unscrew and take off the plastics surrounding the rollers.

Best of luck to your I hope you do not shoot the messenger with negative ratings or feedback.

SOURCE: HP Officejet L7480 false paper jam message. Resett...

Hp 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.

I have an hp j4580 all in one, and it keeps telling me that there is a "carriage jam"...I can't figure out how to fix it

Open the top and look to the right hand side. There is most likley a piece of paper jammed and keeping the carrier from moving the home position. You may have to pop off the small door on top.

Error message: paper jam, there is no paper jam.

The sensor that would detect the paper jam is tripped.
Fiddle with the sensor to release.

Hi, my HP 4580 says there is a paper jam, but there doesn't seem to be one! Help???!!!

Sometimes the paper jam is caused by a tiny piece of paper. It can be smaller than a postage stamp, covering the paper sensor. Or it could just need cleaning. Look for very small piece of paper or look on edge of paper guide for small lamp sensor
