Re: paperjam

I guess you have broken one of the printhead supports. What you can try is to open the printer and set it into place.


BTW: It would be very helpful if you can post a picture of the broken part so that we talk about the same issue.

My hp deskjet says there is a paper jam when there is none and will not print

If your printer for any reason reports a paper jam, withput going through the "clearing paper jam" procedure it may not respond to print command. So follow the procedure below:-

Clearing paper jam in a printer is simple almost seven step procedure depending on the printer. Paper jam is the term used to refer to the scenario where your paper fails to come out of the printer during the print process. When you send a document to the printer, normally the printer prints out the document on a paper; then you can pick up your printed copy. When the paper gets stuck in the printer, it is said that paper has jammed in the printer "paper jam".

Even if you are not a technical person, you can conveniently clear paper jams. All you need is to follow the set of procedures outlined below.

Good luck & God bless!

Am a service person i hav an office jet 5610 printer it always giving paper jam error what is reson for that


very often you get paper clips or staples that block paper path and therefore causes paper jam. also, some paper path sensors gets damaged and the debris can cause paperjam. I suggest you open all levers and check for foreign matters. You can even put the printer upside down so that the foreign thing gets out. The next step is to dsmantle everything and remove the fault.

My printer won't catch the paper to print. It make all the noise, but won't pull the paper through.

You can try the following. Remove all paper from the printer and turn printer off. Try opening the printer as if you were to remove the ink cartridges and check for any paper jammed in the printer. If there is a paper jammed try to remove it. if there is no paper jammed in the printer then try the following remove all paper from the feeder and flip the printer upside down and shake it a little. Sometimes things will fell inside of the paper feeder and will block the paper path thus causing the printer not to be able to pull the paper.

I have a pixma ip1300 printer my problem is everytime i print it warns me service error 6000..what should i do?

The error 6000 is a paperjam error. It can be a very small piece of paper or debris. Open all covers and using a flashlight, look carefully for anything you can find and remove it.

You can also pick up your printer, turn it upside down and gently shake it so that anything in the printer will fall out. You may be surprised at what you see.

I got a Paper Jam message while trying to print on Avery business card paper. Pulled back the jammed paper by reaching into the tray. Tried printing again, Jammed again. Removed the Jam Clear Cover in...

First off, NEVER EVER turn a componant upside down and shake it. Second, open the printer up and search for any additional paper. A lot of time a paper jam isn't just one sheet, especially if you have a faster printer. I would also try using some rubber rejuvinator on the printer so that it picks the paper up better so it goes through the printing cycle better.

Canon MP160 all in one

don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Yesterday someone replied to my problem, i tried it this morning and its fixed 1st time.
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now
