Re: problems on paper jam (just after the selftest)mode...

You may have to reset the printer. I believe these are the directions to follow:

Re-initialize the HP All-in-One Force the HP All-in-One to reinitialize by following the steps below:

  1. Turn the unit off by pressing the ON button.
  2. Disconnect the power cord.
  3. Wait five seconds, then reconnect the power cord.
  4. If necessary, turn the unit back on and try reading the photo card again.
  5. If the unit fails to read the card again, reset the All-in-One. Repeat Steps 1 – 4, but before plugging the unit back in, press and hold the # and 6 keys on the HP All-in-One numeric keypad. Continue to hold these keys down for a few seconds after plugging the unit back in to reset it. Once the All-in-One reestablishes communication with the computer, reset the language and country/region.

Paper is becoming continually jammed

If the paper path is cleared and still blinking, try unplugging the cartridge while on and replace it. Reclose the printer door a couple of times. Sometimes it will catch and not reset.

Epson sx235w paper jam error-there is no paper jam!!!!

I have had this exact problem this morning with Epson SX235W.
4 from the end of a print run the feeder grinded to a holt.
I removed paper switched off machine checked for jam but every time I turned it on it span the feed rollers for a few seconds and came back with the error. I tried everything I could find on Google and after 2 hours its was still the same . by now I was sure that this was mechanical failure. In a last ditch attempt I used good old brute force and pushed a thick piece of card through the feed whilst it was turning on . HA !! Jam light goes out, printer works . 3 sheets later I find a very old/inky rubber band has been pushed out with the paper. must have been in there for ages before becoming a problem.
Moral is - there is almost definnatly someting stuck, even if you cant see it.

Paper will not start feed in on it own

Probably no paper jam, but put a ruler across the top across where the switches are, if it's bowed down some the frame has been bent. Any weight, luggage,etc placed on top can bend the frame and that restricts the paper path and you need a shop repair.

Light blinking

If you're setting up the printer or changing the toner or ink cartridge for the first time, double-check the instructions to make sure that you installed the cartridge correctly and, for new printers, that you have removed all the pieces of cardboard or plastic packing material. 
Check to see whether paper is feeding from the paper tray. If it's not leaving the tray at all, try feeding a page manually (if that's an option) or using a different paper tray. Sometimes a problem with the tray can be traced to a broken spring or a piece of plastic. 
If paper is feeding from the tray but jamming in the printer, examine where the jam is occurring and then inspect the printer carefully to see if you can find what is causing the problem. A piece of paper, for instance, might be blocking the paper path. 
If paper is feeding through the printer but coming out blank, check to see whether the printer is out of toner or ink. A defective toner or ink cartridge could be the problem.

Lexmark x1270 printer power button blinking won't print

I had the same issue with my Lexmark X1290, I solved it by opening up the device, so the ink cartridges should pop, they didn't so I pressed the power button to switch it off, and then switched it back on (with the device open!) and all the paper flowed out, the flashing stopped and it could print again. Good Luck!

Error LED blinking after paper jam, won't print

I have a similar but different model B4300. Several others, & I have found that a small piece of paper 1/2 square may lodge under a plastic guide, holding open a switch. This is very difficult to notice if you don't know where to look.
Open top lid
Remove the ink cartridge/roller drum as a single unit.
Look in the printer at the metal roller in front.
A Plastic strip on top & in front of the roller covers 2 square holes which should look dark. On your LEFT, as you face the unit, there is a small magnetic switch, to the LEFT of the LEFT square hole, under the plastic.
In my case, the paper was seen as white in the hole, and extended under the switch. I was able to grasp it with a small medical forceps, next to the switch. By gently twisting, I pulled it out without taking the unit apart.
The printer then worked perfectly after the paper under the switch was removed.
