Question about HP PhotoSmart 7260 InkJet Printer

Brand new printer. Jams about 80% of the time

I have just bought a brand new 7260. I am using HP A4 photopaper. I am experiencing massive jamming problems. It is jamming about 60 to 70% of the time. I've tried 1) Using different reams of paper
2) Ensured that it is properly seated in the feed tray.
3) Decollated the paper.

The paper has been stored properly (at least since I have had it) and it appears dry. AMbient temperature in the places that this is being used is about 18-22 degrees Celsius.

The jams are continuing. Any other suggestions before this goes back to the supplier?

The paper keeps jamming in our Samsung laser printer 660 nd. We bought heavier paper for a laser printer but it still jams.


The ideal paper is around 80 GSM (gm2) if you are having problems with a BRAND NEW REAM of standard copy paper then your printer will need service.



paper that is thicker/heavier than this can actually cause more jams and problems and show worn out rollers earlier



These printers only tend to jam at the entry (pickup) near the base of the printer or in the fuser unit (hot area near the top)



if you are getting jams in multi page documents, have a look at which area the most crumpled piece of paper is in before you try and remove it.



the pick up rollers and separation pads are relatively cheap but the fuser units can be a bit pricey.

HP Color LaserJet CP1215 jamming on print a lot


Printers can be finicky. Ours at church works with no problems until we bought a different brand/weight of paper, then it jammed frequently. That is the first thing I would check. Then, the next thing is the rollers can get slightly worn. When you're talking less-than paper thickness tolerances, it doesn't take much to make a difference between working and jamming. Unfortunately getting these worked on is close to if not right at the cost of a new one.

This jamming has to do with third-party toner cartridges being used. I had this problem using Xerox toner cartridges and found that I would have no jamming if I used at least 2 hp-brand toner cartridges and the rest Xerox. I then used a different brand of 3rd party toner cartridges that would not jam as long as just the black cartridge was a genuine HP black toner cartridge. This issue has been confirmed even by the manufacturers of the generic toner cartridges. Hope that helps!

Paper jams when folding 8 1/2 X 11 ivory paper; less often with white. Tech says it's a paper issue - so whose colored paper (brand) will work - or is it a design flaw?


Is this paper the same weight/thickness as the white paper?
Are you specifying the settings properly as far as the weight and type?
It sounds like the sensors are detecting a double feed(?)
Try different settings for the tray, and even try a different brand of stock to verify.

I use an HP officejet 6210 and am trying to print some photos onto CanonPR-101 super high gloss paper size A4. It jams each time. Is there a solution?


By studying the print set-up box (for the first time!) I set the printer to the correct photopaper and print quality required, or as near as I could get, and managed to complete the print.Simple really.

HP 1510 - Photo Paper Jams


Hi, try using HP brand photo paper, HP makes their special photo printers and special photo paper for them.
The surface of the back of the HP's paper is rough, like sandpaper to avoid the paper being jammed in the cheap loading mechanism of their actual printers.
