HP 2420n printer

When you put paper, does it recognize that paper is inserted?

A small white plastic piece has broken off the bottom of the printer. I am not sure where it has come from. I think the paper carrier may have been forced and caused this problem. Now the printer is not...

In my experience, what you say might be correct. The small white broken piece could be the arm that comes down and touches the top sheet of paper in the tray, so it knows how much paper is loaded. When there is no arm, it can not recognize that there is paper loaded, thus NO PAPER FEED. I have fixed one of these in the past, but I had 2 identical printers to mix and match parts. I am not sure what it will cost you, you would have to call the repair center and find out. It took me about 2 hours to fix, so I hope a professional could do it faster than that.

Paper keeps jamming

I had this problem and it was a plastic piece that kept getting in the way. Turn the printer around, open the "duplex" addition piece and see if there is a white plastic piece that is on the left just inside the black paper guide. Mine was sticking out. It looks like it may have a broken tab that clicks on a rotating bar on the outside of the black paper guide. I used a dime to hold the white plastic piece in place. Now I only jam on occasion and everything else works perfectly!

My granddaughter put a toy in printer & a part broke off - thin, translucent piece about 1/4 inch wide by 7 inches long. How do I open up the printer in order to try to put this part back?

The plastic piece you are talking about it just prevents the paper from bending forward when is inserted in the printer. That plastic piece should not cause any paper jams or printing problems. If you do happen to have paper jams maybe a piece of plastic fell inside where the paper goes. Simply turn off the printer, remove the paper and flip the printer upside down and shake it a little that should remove any debris inside the printer.

Upper Paper Tray light flashing as if not all the way when it is.

Remove the paper tray.

On the right side you will see Three (3) holes
the plastic piece you found when in the bottom hole.

Since it is broken it will no longer snap into place.

Make your self fom either plastic or cardboard, a piece that will cover the bottom hole but not so big that it will block the hole above it.

Then using a good stiff tape (eloectical or duck) paste the piece over the hole, making sure you don't block the hole above it, or any other part of the machine.

I have taken a plastic knife cut to size and superglued it in.

If all else fails you can order that plastic piece that broke from Xerox. It's called a paper size sensor. about $5.00 for the part and about $10.00 for shipping.

Good luck

Paper folds and jams before

your description points to a fuser assembly problem which is right where you looked. I'm not sure what that plastic piece is from. if it is black, it probably came from the fuser. That is a replaceable part, but I'm not sure you can still purchase them from Xerox.

Replacement parts

I think you may have the skills to make it
get some plastic epoxy or , i get them from a auto parts store but you can also find them in home improvement stores, etc

make a small paper cylindrical mold that would engulf the old plastic piece, fill it with epoxy to the top, turn it upside down and place it on the plastic part where the old hook was. once solid you can cut this to size so it will hold the spring.
