You might have a small piece of torn paper caught up inside. Try feeding and manually ejecting a new piece of paper through it You might have to take a flashlight and look inside for a bit of paper.

My hp 3740 Printer's power button is blinking and doesn"t print since yesterday.


Blinking power light can mean a jam, out of paper, open cover, or bad usb cable.
Open the covers and look for torn paper and nothng blocking the paper sensor. Check and make sure your USB cable from PC to printer is connected.

2. Press in the tab on the rear door to release the door. Remove the door by pulling it
away from the HP All-in-One.
CAUTION: Trying to clear a paper jam from the front of the HP All-in-One can
damage the print mechanism. Always access and clear paper jams through the
rear door.

My HP Deskjet 3740 had a paper jam. I removed all the paper. Turned the printer and computer on and off several times but the printer still thinks it has a paper jam. I can't get the printer to work at...


You have to check if there is still a piece of paper jammed in the printers rollers/gears. It is inside when u take the lid off. After that you can try to recalibrate your printer from the software which came along with the printer. Try these and give more clarification.

Or i cut and paste text, but you should view pictures. If you cannot get to it from link. Try typing "Paper jams alternating between front and back door" It should be first link from HP about a 3550.

document.tlSearch.tx.value=unescape("") s.gif s.gif
HP Color LaserJet 3500, 3550, and 3700 Series Printers - Paper Jams Alternating Between Front and Back Door Issue Description Customers may see paper jams error messages with no paper seen in the paper path. The message will alternate between check the front door and the back door. Workaround The release lever engagement tabs on the rear door can be bumped into the in-correct position. The purpose for this tab is to re-engage the fuser release levers as the rear door is closed. When one or both of these are left in the in-correct position the printer goes into a cycle of alternating between a "Jam in the Front Door" message and "Jam in the Rear Door" message. There is no paper present in the paper path when this happens. When a customer gets the "Jam in the Front Door" message and opens the front door, no paper is found. After the customer closes the front door, they get the "Jam in the Rear Door" message. When they open the rear door, find not paper (even pull out the fuser), and close the rear door, they get the "Jam in the Front Door" message. This cycle will continue

Placing both engagement tabs in the "Correct" position solves the problem and allows the print job to continue.for as long as the customer is willing to keep checking.
