Question about HP Photosmart 2575 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Paper Jam with no Jam

I keep getting an error saying that there is a paper jam, but I have taken the printer apart and can't find any jams. The printer did actually jam once but the message just won't go away making the printer useless. I've tried to clean the paper sensors, but I'm running out of ideas.
Any help would be much appreciated!

    We are having the same problem with ours. We have run out of ideas and HP said that the warrantee ran out one day prior to our call. Have you heard or found a solution?

    I also have an HP All In One Ink Jet Printer and it is also saying "Paper Jam" and "Check Cartridges" . It will not do anything and I am quite frustrated. This is the 2nd HP that this has happened. I thoroughly cleaned the rollers and took the cartridges out and placed them back in. It still won't stop blinking.

How to solve a paper jam on dell 924 printer

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Says Paper Jam but ther is no paper jam

It appear from here that the exit sensor may be dirty and you can use canned air and blow it out.

You may also be missing the paper out sensor that is located at the bottom of the printer oposite of the paper tray when you pull it out. When the flag arm has fallin out, it will give a false paper jam error when the last sheet has printed from the tray, not knowing or detecting that the tray is now empty.

Paper jam

check paper jam error you need do:
1) between paper input tray and cartridge check any pieces paper
2) between cartridge and fuser area do same thing
3) check fuser and pressure roller(near fuser) any pieces of paper there
4) after fuser to output tray
all above step checking for avoid any pieces paper obstruct any sensor through all paper road, so that cause jam error
