Question about HP CN504A - Photosmart Premium C310a All-in-One Wireless Inkjet Printe
Printer has a paper jam. Doesn't seem to have any paper in the printer. Is there a way I can get the gears to turn without loading any paper?

SOURCE: Paper Jam
Sometimes the "paper jam" with no paper is due to the printer not being able to feed paper in to the machine. You send a print job to it...printer attempts to feed paper but can't...then you get the paper jam message and ofcourse there is no paper in the machine. Powering off and on should clear the message. Make sure you clear the print job from the print que or the same thing will happen on power off/power on because the computer will still try to send the print job to the printer when turned on. I have found that all of HP's machines that have this style of paper feed mechanism fails prematurely. The pickup roller is too small for one but as soon as the roller is coated with dust it begins to fail. You can take a Q-tip and go in from the back to try and clean the roller. Water is fine.

Try these instructions.
Sometimes when you get a paper jam the carriage that holds the ink becomes jammed and you have to reset the printer to get it to work again.

SOURCE: HP 7680 paper jam
I spent 21/2 hours with the HP tech support - with their recomendation to upgrade my 14 month old computer to the bigger model because the screen reads "paper jam". I have had this printer replaced once already, 1 week after I received it for a defective doc feeder. I decided to take things into my own hands - First of all, no paper was ever located in the paper jam area. Several soft resets by shutting down for 20+ seconds, then pressing #6 at start up resulted in any improvement - the screen continued to read "paper Jam....." the HP tech was unable to offer any practical suggestions.
I turned the machine upside down after removing the document feeder and examined the rollers at the back of the rear tray where the paper jam was supposed to be. I noticed that there was some black residue on the gears and although the machine was off and unplugged - the rollers / gears would not roll freely and seemed to get stuck. I cleaned them thoroughly with an old but clean toothbrush and water. (don't grease the gears - I've heard it eats the plastic) - until the rollers would freely roll when I moved the gray rubber rollers.
Returned the machine to correct position - and turned it on - "paper jam" message returned but the machine was sounding different than it had - so I did another soft reset (unplug from wall and printer for 20 seconds, then holding #6 for a few seconds while plugging back in and now I can print. The printer went through its maintenance cycle and did a realignment. I can print and everything is working fine at this time.
I hope that this will help someone. I couldn't find any information on how to repair the printer and HP seems to be all about producing junk and convincing you to "upgrade" at a cost of $2-300. When this one does finally go - I won't be buying an HP!
The 7680 jams a lot and the document feeder has a lot to be desired. It has trouble feeding straight and if there is a jam anywhere in the machine - it is always difficult removing the paper without tearing it and creating more problems and waste of time.

Hi Girlemom. Just had the same problem here. Lift up the lid and slide the ink cartridges to the left. If they are stuck in the middle, this will prevent the printer from starting properly. Then, unplug it, plug back in, and turn on. It should restart normally.
