My HP Deskjet 3740 had a paper jam. I removed all the paper. Turned the printer and computer on and off several times but the printer still thinks it has a paper jam. I can't get the printer to work at all.

You have to check if there is still a piece of paper jammed in the printers rollers/gears. It is inside when u take the lid off. After that you can try to recalibrate your printer from the software which came along with the printer. Try these and give more clarification.

Hp 3740 says it has a paper jam...no paper in it. rear door has been checked and replaceed.


You might have a small piece of torn paper caught up inside. Try feeding and manually ejecting a new piece of paper through it You might have to take a flashlight and look inside for a bit of paper.

My printer says it has a paper jam, even though the paper jam has been cleared. It won't print. Any ideas?


Hi, Try pulling out the plug for 1 hour and then try again. Pulling the plug may reset the printer.
Good luck.

HP Deskjet D4100 1) The arrow pointing down near the power switch is flashing. Printer will not print. 2) The printer goes "offline" Paper is not jammed, have unplugged/plugged. rebooted numerous...


First, here is a link for the troubleshooting your printer: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-deskjet-d4100-printer-series/501868

I always go the the manufacturer website to download drivers. I also just had a similar problem on our printer at church. Two people looked and looked after pulling a jammed paper out of the printer. I looked a few times, opened the 2 back doors, the front door, removed the paper trays and looked, opened the side door, and looked again. Each time the printer said jam. I got a flashlight and looked everywhere again, nothing. Still said jam. I looked one more time in above where the paper trays go, and under a piece of plastic just barely visible at just the right angle was a tiny scrap of paper, not much bigger than a quarter. I managed to get it out and all works fine. Possibly you may have something like this going on?

My hp 3740 Printer's power button is blinking and doesn"t print since yesterday.


Blinking power light can mean a jam, out of paper, open cover, or bad usb cable.
Open the covers and look for torn paper and nothng blocking the paper sensor. Check and make sure your USB cable from PC to printer is connected.

Top light with (x) blinking


Fixed this problem this morning by unplugging the printer from the computer, plugging it back in and changing out both cartridges (color and black) and replacing with new cartridges.

Don't know which helped. I had been unplugging the computer from the power source but not the printer from the computer.

My four year old printer is still cranking - good open forum you provide here. Thank you !
In that spirit, I decided to contribute my update ..... Judy
