Paper jam message

I just got an hp photosmart C4280 printer and it keeps saying paper jam when I try to change the inks. I have opened the front door and tried to slide the ink holders back and forth and it gets stuck on the left side.

    I have the same issue with the paper jam with no paper inside. The printer has no paper in it and the page did not rip. Also there is no printer feed button on these HPs so it will not work by that route.

I've tried printing twice and ended up with a paper jam. I cleared it, but also saw what looked like ink splatters inside the printer. I took the cartridges out and cleaned up the splatters and replaced...


This 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.

Turned it on and it says paper jam. There is no


Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

I have a hp photosmart c4280 all in one printer and i just replaced the cartridges and now it says i have a crriage jam and with no paper in it and it won't clear


Some HP printers have a switch on the back of them that has to be reset, by opening and closing the "paper jam" door. If that doesn't work try cutting the power for a few seconds, and plug it back in.

Paper jamming


Step1
Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred. 
Step
2
Turn off the printer. 
Step
3
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper. 
Step
4
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge. 
Step
5
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it. 
Step
6
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A). 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. 
Step
7
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though. 
Step
8
Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on. 
Step
9
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
