I have a problem with my hp c4180 photosmart printer, it seems to keep saying paper jam when there no paper in it.i pulled the paper out the wrong end and we fix it and then after a while it comes up...

A switch where the paper is routed through the machine is stuck in the wrong position whether paper is jamming it or the switch just got stuck. By the way a switch could also mean a sensor being dirty and if that is the case clean it with a q-tip and alcohol.

C4180 All-in-one Will not feed through A4 photo paper. Message out of paper, then jams. No problems with ordinary A4 paper. I have checked and there does not appear to be a paper scraps clogging up...

there is a sensor just infront of the paper where its loaded, try get down there with your finger and clean it with some cloth and maybe "after shave or alcohol", it apears the gloss shine of the paper is not been picked up, try clean the rollers that take the paper in with a window cleaner, you these sprays you can get to clean windows, they are good because it will bring back the sticky touch to a rubber roller. hope this helps

My printer jammed when I tried to print a Tshirt transfer.

Most Tshirt transfer paper is fairly thick you could try a different brand and double check that you are printing on the transfer paper not the thin separtion sheets used to stop the paper sticking together.

This may be caused by a dirty sensor. Disconnect power supply, open the printer and clean everything. You may use toilet paper. Be careful not to leave fragments of toilet paper inside the printer.
