What this light sequence means that the printer has a paper jam.

When a paper jam occurs, the printer stops and the operator panel's Paper Jam light and Continue button lights come on. Press and release Continue twice quickly to display the specific secondary error paper jam light sequence.

How to clear Paper Jam

Press Continue button twice quickly to see the secondary error code.

To get the secondary error codes

When the Error light (!) and Continue button lights are both on, a secondary error has occurred.

When the Paper Jam light (4th light) and Continue button lights are both on, a paper jam secondary error has occurred.

Press and release Continue button twice quickly to display the secondary error code light sequence.

Press Continue button to resume printing once all the jammed pages are cleared from the paper path.

We recommend that you clear the entire paper path when a paper jam occurs.

To clear a paper jam:

1 If you are feeding paper from a tray, remove the tray, and then remove any jams.

2 Open the front cover and remove the print cartridge assembly.

NOTE: Do not leave the print cartridge assembly exposed to direct light for an Extended period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.

3 Remove any jams in the area behind the print cartridge assembly.

4 Lift the flap at the front of the printer and remove any jams beneath the flap.

5 Open the rear exit and remove any jams.

6 After you have cleared the jams, reinstall the print cartridge assembly, make sure all printer covers and trays are closed, and then press Continue button to resume printing.

NOTE: The printer reprints the pages that caused the paper jam.

Printer blinking red and showing letter E

Error description:

The Attention (red) light is blinking. There are six possible causes that will display the Attention light pattern:

-Paper out
-Door open
-Print cartridge missing
-Paper jam
-Paper sensor jammed
-Duplexer error

Solution :
After the cause of the problem has been addressed, pressing GO will cause the printer to attempt to recover from the cause of the error. If the printer is unsuccessful, it will continue to display the Attention message until the cause is remedied.

Pressing JOB CANCEL will cancel the print job and the printer will return to the Ready state (Ready light on) unless there is a paper jam still in the printer or the print cartridge is not in the printer.

Light flashes next to "check printer cartridge"

For an illustrated version of the text below go to:
Check Paper Light Blinking
Figure 1: Check Paper light blinking At the start or in the middle of a print job, the Check Paper light begins to blink. The unit will not print. If the unit is connected to a computer and the HP software has been installed, one of the following messages is displayed:
  • There is a paper jam (or misfeed). Clear the jam and press the Enter, Resume, or Okay button on the hp psc.
  • The unit is out of paper. Load more paper and press the Enter, Resume, or OK button on the hp psc.
If both the Check Paper and the Check Print Cartridge lights are blinking simultaneously, or if the computer message is The print cartridge carriage is stalled , click here for troubleshooting information . Step 1: If the unit is out of paper, load more paper
  1. Move the paper guide out, load the paper, then adjust the paper guide. Make sure the paper is flat in the tray. Figure 2: Load paper
  2. Press the On/Resume button. Figure 3: On/Resume button
If the unit is loaded with paper and the light is still blinking, go on to the next step. Step 2: Remove jammed paper from the rear of the unit
  1. Unplug the product.
  2. Press the tab on the left side of the rear access door and remove it. Figure 4: Unlatching the rear access door by pressing the tab on the left
  3. Remove all the jammed paper and foreign material. Pull the paper slowly and gently to avoid tearing it or damaging the print mechanism. Avoid touching the internal components.
  4. Replace the rear access door. Put the pins on the right end of the door into the holes on the right side of the rear access area. Then snap the door shut. Figure 5: Door pins in product holes
Step 3: Check the front of the unit for jammed paper
  1. Open the cartridge access door in the front of the unit. Figure 6: Open the cartridge access door
  2. Pull out any jammed paper or other foreign material you were not able to remove from the rear. Pull the paper slowly and carefully to avoid tearing it or damaging the print mechanism.
  3. Close the cartridge access door and plug the product back in.
How to avoid paper jams
  • Only insert paper into the paper tray until it meets resistance - do not push it farther in.
  • Make sure the paper is flat in the paper tray and the guide is adjusted to the width of the paper.
  • Do not add paper while the unit is printing.
  • Remove printed pages frequently.
  • Do not use paper that is too thin, too slick, or that stretches.
  • Do not use torn or creased paper. Paper that has been printed previously may cause jams.
  • Make sure the rear access door is securely fastened.
  • If you follow all these guidelines and still have frequent paper jams, you may need to clean the paper rollers.
Cleaning paper rollers
  1. Turn off the unit, then unplug the power cord.
  2. Remove the rear access door. See the picture above.
  3. Wipe the paper rollers with a lint-free cloth lightly moistened with distilled or bottled water. Rotate the rollers with your fingers to clean all the way around. Figure 7: Paper rollers
  4. Allow the rollers to dry completely, then replace the rear access door. Put the pins on the right end of the door into the holes on the right side of the rear access area, then snap the door shut.
  5. Plug the unit back in and turn it on.

I have an HP J4540 printer and it stopped working and the exclamation point keeps flashing. We do not know what to do - misplaced our manual. What is the problem?

Don't worry, Please press the Exclamation point, which is telling you some error has occurred while printing or scanning, once you will press the exclamation button that would stop blinking and try to print again, please let me know it works or not

The orange down arrow light keeps blinking. what's wrong?

This means that either the printer is out of paper or there is a paper jam.

Try to check all feeds for a paper jam. Once the jam is cleared your printer should resume printing again.

Sometimes even a small peice of paper can cause the printer jam

Attention light blinks after jam

most of the HP printers will detect the paper jam and will provide you with help window automatically to rectify the problem. If paper gets jammed, just remove it from backside and then turn off the printer and power it on. cancel any pending printing documents. Everything have to become normal. If it not, try restarting your system too.
I hope its helpful to you

Hp 5550 printer problem


You have a paper jam. If you have more paper that is left to be fed than paper already printed, pull it out from the feed tray, if not pull it out from the ejection position. You will not harm your printer.

After you do this, turn you printer off. On your PC's desktop if there is still a printer icon near your clock display in the bottom right double click that and then in the window that pops up drop the file menu down and select delete print jobs. Turn you printer off, shut your PC down. Turn your printer on, press and hold the power on button until you receive a test page or use your menu to select print test page. Also, do a nozzle check and print head alignment too all while your computer is off. Once, done, restart your PC. When you have a desktop, go to start menu, control panel or settings, printers. Select your printer to open up the printer properties page. From this, print a test page. If you have done everything right it should print okay. If you still have a printer icon in the system tray (area next to clock display) double click this again, select any print jobs left in the printer and choose resume or print now or print.

If you have any questions your get stuck, use the comment box below to comment back to me. I'll get back to you as soon as possible to help you out. I'm in and out while operating my business.
