Hi,
Please switch power off first before touching !!!
Check the doors are closed properly, you can get errors if not.
check the back too for particles of paper, open it then close again, double checking doors.
plug it in, try again

Hope this helps
Regards

Why won't the paper jam error code clear on HP 3930


First, check to make certain there are no small pieces of paper stuck in the gears of the rollers and carriage. You may have to reach in through the paper tray to move the carriage to see both sides. To do this, the printer must be unplugged.

If you are certain you have cleared the jam, I would do a power reset:
With the printer on -
* unplug the power cord from the back of the printer
* unplug the power cord from the wall outlet
* wait at least 15 seconds
* plug the cord back into the wall
* plug the cord back into the back of the printer
* printer should turn on by itself, if not press power button to turn on
* try to print a test page: (With printer on - while holding the power button in, open and close the front cover of the printer 4 times, then release the power button, self-test should print.)

The following link from the HP Support site is a step-by-step guide to removing paper jams. You may want to follow them to ensure you have cleared all the jams and reset the printer correctly.

Message reads:-Paper is jammed in the product. Turn off the product, open the scanner unit, and remove the paper. See documentation.' I have checked for any paper jammed, but finds none. I have even u


Did you try unplugging the power cord and waiting a couple of minutes, then plug back in and see if the printer resets itself. Also try checking all the paths that the paper travels through the machine for any scraps of paper that may have torn off during the jam up. Sometimes a very small scrap will prevent printers from resetting themselves. Also disconnect the printer from the computer before unplugging so the printer doesn't receive any signal from the computer. It may not mean anything.

We had a paper jam and although we got the paper out it won't feed properly anymore.


Try to remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Make sure there are no torn piece/s of paper left in the cartridge area or in the paper path. Close the cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, re-insert the cartridges and close the cover. Load some paper. Try to print again.
If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

My printer keeps telling me that i have a system error. Remover paper jam then press start but nothing happens. Help


Where does this "system error" message appear? On your printer display or on your computer screen? Try to remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet to reset itself. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges. Then load some paper. Try to print again and see if the error appears again.

PAPER JAM. NO PAPER IN MACHINE BUT STILL GET PAPER JAM SIGNAL. OCCURRED IN MIDDLE OF PRINTING PG 2 OF 2 PG JOB. I CAREFULLY REMOVED THE HALF-PRINTED SHEET, PRESSED "OK" AND IMMEDIATELY GOT "PAPER JAM"...


the first step you should do is.
> unplug the power cable from the printer and then plug it back in.
> clean all the rollers which are there.. front rollers, adf rollers.. rollers at the back ..
> if does not work then. perform a reset.
( unplug the power cable from the printer while the printer is on. and after that press and hold the 6 and the # key on the printer. while holding and pressing down these keys plug in the power cable and wait fr 20 secs and then release the buttons.. )
this is a reset..
after this reset it will take few minutes to initialize.

These steps will possibly resolve the issue.. if not i must suggest to to get a new printer..

HP 5550 Print issue


When you removed the jammed paper , the jam paper sensor was not reset or positioned correctly. The reason the machine was sending two pieces of paper thru at once was probably due to the paper feed sensor. A lot of H'Ps do this. Try re-aligning the tray and if you pulled the paper out and heard a grinding noise, the whole feed unit is probably out of time.I would only re-install the software as a last resort, since your problem was caused by hardware, not software.
