I had the HP LaserJet 1300 printer repaired recently, but because I was unaware of the actual cause of the paper jams, the problem recurred. I believe the cause is not properly setting the printer to print with 24 lbs paper in a 20 lbs. setting. I now need to change whatever part needs to be replaced. I would try to do the repair myself with the help of a repair manual in an attempt to be cost-efficient.
