Possible cause:
The eject rollers get too slippery because of paper dust and other foreign matter.
Recommendation:
Clean the eject rollers with a paper towel dampened with water. A second cleaning may be
necessary. The easiest way to do this (without disassembling the machine for full access to
the rollers) is to hold the dampened paper towel against the rollers and make a blank print.
Clean the rollers as they turn and remove the paper towel as the paper ejects. Repeat as
necessary.
Now is a good time to also clean the paper pick up roller and feed rollers to prevent
feeding problems.

Paper jams in back of machine?


you have an obstruction either a piece of paper between the rolllers or the secondary feed rollers are not turning.... open the machine and follow the feed path ...take a piece of paper and manually feed the paper with the machine in the off position look at the feed rollers then the secondary rollers( usually two small rods with rubber sleeves kissing each other ...if you can look at the sides on the machine( inside the cover) see if the gears ( usually white ) can turn or mesh correctly... if you do not see any obstruction then these rollers are not turning when they are supposed to when you press the print button. 90 percent of these problems are paper jams if no jam something is not activating the feed rollers

Left corner is folded down on page


Sounds like an issue with the feed rollers. The roller on the left side might be hung up and is causing the corner to fold over when the paper is pulled through. I would try checking the feed rollers in either the actual tray or the back of the printer. Another thing to check is the other tray (the manual one). Does the paper fold? this should help you narrow down where the problem lies.

When receiving a FAX or printing a receipt, it repeatedly jams. The paper is found inside the back cover baked into a folded fan shape.


This folded pattern indicates that the jam is being caused by a physical obstruction in the paper path section. I would suggest manually feeding a thick piece of cardstock paper and seeing if you can find the location of the jam, as it is most likely a piece of trapped paper or plastic tab that has come out of its original position.

Red "Paper" light stays on; printer will not print.


Paper light flashing could mean several things on this machine.

There could be a paper jam in the machine. Open the front cover remove the drum and toner and look in the machine. You can also check in between the drum and toner by removing the toner from the drum. Open the back cover and look for a Jam as well.

Try putting a piece of paper in the manual feed tray which is right above the paper tray, sometimes on certain documents the margins are too big and asks to go into the manual feed slot.

Paper jams and folds into accordians


Most problems with the HP4 series can be fixed by replacing the paper pick roller. Is your paper jamming at the output slot on the top? Can you print ok with the back door open? If so, you need a new output assembly. Try Feedroller.com for cheap parts.

Credit card-sized and 4" x 6" sized paper must be loaded properly. If this media is not loaded properly, it will feed into the printer and will not exit. Credit card-sized paper should only be loaded in the ASF and in portrait orientation. 4" x 6" sized paper can be loaded in the ASF or cassette. But must be loaded portrait orientation.
If credit card-sized paper was loaded in landscape orientation in the ASF and did not eject (exit), please follow this procedure.
  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Load the same paper type that is jammed inside the printer in portrait orientation.

  3. Power on the printer.
    The paper stock in the ASF will automatically feed the jammed paper from the printer.

  4. To resume printing, load the paper in portrait orientation.

If 4" x 6" sized paper was loaded in landscape orientation in the cassette and did not eject (exit), please follow this procedure.

  3. Fold in four a piece of letter-sized plain paper.

  4. Push in the folded paper until it hits the jammed paper.

  7. Pull out the folded paper and close the rear cover.

  8. Power on the printer and confirm that the Alarm light is off.
    The jammed paper should automatically eject.

  9. To resume printing, load the paper in portrait orientation.

Paper not feeding


This could be caused by several parts, the most likely is the paper eject sensor lever & spring being out of position. Get a stiff piece of A4 card such as the backing from a note pad. Make sure the print head is in the parked position (fully right). Position card in the feed hopper and push through the feed mech. Open the top and watch for the card to come through the printer. This should realign the lever and also clear any obstructions in the paper path. Always try to remove paper jams in the direction of the paper feed, pulling backwards can damage levers etc.

Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
