HP Laserjet 1020: False paper jam

Every time I try to print now with this printer, it tells me there is a paper jam.  There isn't, but I follow the instructions anyway.  The problem recurs.

Re: HP Laserjet 1020: False paper jam

Hp false paper jam error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

Culprit could be a worn (or non-functioning) pick-up roller. Most printers will report a paper jam even though it hasn't actually fed any paper.
Good Luck.

It's most likely a sensor problem. I suggest you exchange your printer.

Try to press the reset button on your printer if did not works just try to download the reseter of your printer in HP Laserjet 1020 at the HP website. Because your printer have a lifespan printing; example if your printer have a 100,000 copies to be print so you have aloud to print not more than 100,000 copies. That's why need to reset your printer using the reseter program by HP.

HP 1020 Issue

Maybe if you hold down the cycle button and let it run through a "test cycle" to receive a printer data sheet it might clear the internal buffer or whatever you call that short term memory these printers have. Let us know. JP
