Re: paper jam

On the HP 1100's and the 6's, there is a design flaw that causes the separator to feed more than one sheet of paper. HP has released kits that you can install that fix the problem temporarily. Your best bet is getting rid of the top fed HP laserjets. They sucked and made HP the target of a class action lawsuit.

I have a ESP7 all in one printer. The error says Paper Jam, no error number. The problem is there is no paper jam...I believe the problem exsits with the printhead it is not moving to the center, there...


There may be three things that are causing your printer to report a paper jam error when there is no apparent paper jam.

1) The printer is picking up the paper feed as a jam

Remove all the paper from the printer. Turn the printer off at the mains for 30 seconds. Turn it on and try printing with just 1 piece of paper in

2) There may be a bit of paper stuck on one of the sensors inside the printer.

Open the top of the printer and look very carefully around the rollers at the edges and manually turn them to check if there is any small bits of paper

3) There may be dust on one of the sensors.

Open the printer and blow inside it or ideally use a can of compressed air to clean the printer.

HP Inkjet Printers - Fixing Paper Path Issues: Paper Jam, Carriage Jam, and...

For a printer to work, the paper has to move through the printer. The route that paper follows through the printer is called the paper path. If the paper doesn't pick up (no pick) or something interferes with the paper path, nothing prints. If the paper is stuck in the path, you have a paper jam. Sometimes jammed paper in the printer can lead to the device that carries your ink cartridges back and forth in your printer to get stuck (carriage jam) as well. Sometimes the carriage can stop moving for other reasons.

The videos in the following playlists were created to help resolve these paper path issues. These videos are not short or entertaining but they are complete. They repeat steps (test print) so even novice users can follow these without having to refer back to instructions earlier in the video. The solutions in these videos are what works to solve paper path issues most of the time. Follow the steps completely. Sometimes people shortcut some of the solutions. Avoid shortcuts for accurate troubleshooting.

The steps for resolving paper path issues are specific to your printer. These playlists have videos for about many different models. We will continue adding to the collection or updating the videos when we find new ways to resolve these issues. The title and description of the videos explain what models the videos apply to.

Some of the videos end with a step that explains that the printer needs to be serviced. If your printer is still in warranty and you get to that step, contact HP for help. If your printer is out of warranty, open a new post in this forum and see if others have a non-conventional solution that will help. Also, Google is your friend offering non-HP out of warranty solutions for servicing/fixing a broken printer.

2550Ln will not print

If the supply lights are not lit, then you may have a paper jam. Check the rear cover. Also sometimes paper jam lights come on even though the paper has not jammed, just misfed from the cassette. Please let me know any further details.

Printer Feeder not working well. Paper always gets stuck.

Recurring paper jams can be caused by broken parts, using too much paper in the in-tray, or parts (usually the rear door) not on all the way. This video explains how to fix a paper or carriage jam, but explains along the way the things to watch for. If you go through the steps in this video and you still get paper jammed, you may have a broken printer that needs to be replaced or repaired.
