You can try cleaning the rollers with water and mild soap. Also, try taking an air can to it.

Paper mismatch officejet 6500 crumples


There could be a foreign object or torn piece of paper that's stuck further inside the printer mechanism path. Try using a flashlight and inspecting any access or clean out hatches. Sometimes something will be caught inside and cause the paper you feed in to crumple and create a jam. I watched a video on youtube giving different ideas on how to fix this problem.

Faulty paper feed


There is a sticker or piece of paper inside the printer. TO fix this, some parts needs to be removed so the foreign object obstructing the paper path can be removed from the printer.

The paper won't feed through. it did one minute then stopped


This is sort of scenario could be caused by dust inside the printer. Dust prevents the rollers from having a firm grip on the paper while picking paper. When one roller has a firm grip and rolls the paper well while the other doesn’t, crumples result. So I will suggest you get a long handle brush and try to reach as far inside the printer as possible and brush (from the back and front). This, if properly done should do it. Brush especially the rollers etc.

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Paper Mis-Feeding


Check for any pieces of torn paper in the path, especially on the left side. You can also reach into the slot that the paper feeds into and feel each of the rollers behind the plastic cover; they all should turn freely, pay special attention to the wheel to the left.
