Paper feed problem, then error

After queing a printing job, and warming up printing attempts to bring in paper, slides and cannot grab paper with roller then shuts down on orange steady blinking light.

I have had this problem repeatedly since i bought the thing. Seems to always come up when I need it most.

I've tried different papers, turning paper over ..restarting with without power button on, cleaning, replacing toners..etc. Nothing works...and then for some odd reason it will go back to working.

Right now, it's NOT. Help!!!

Error paper jam


Hello Cassandra,
It sounds like you are having phantom paper jams. When the printer starts a print job and tries to pull a piece of paper but can't grab it the printer thinks there is a jam but there really is not. If the paper pickup rollers are worn down they are not able to grab the paper correctly to feed it into the printer which causes this type of error. The rollers are considered user installable and come in a kit with the rollers and the paper separation pad which keeps more than one paper from being pickup up at the same time. Installing the paper feed kit should clear up your paper feed problems. The paper feed kit is available here: http://www.ccl-la.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=342
I hope this helps.

Printer shows jam when there is none, press the check and it prints OK


That type of problem is called a phantom paper jam and is caused by the printer not picking up the paper like it should. When the print job is sent to the printer the pickup rollers turn and should grab the top sheet of paper and feed it into the printer. When the rollers get worn down and slick they can not grab the paper right so you get the error message. When you retry the rollers may be able to grab the paper and the job goes through. To correct this intermittent problem you will need to replace the pickup rollers and separation pads. This is easy to do for the end user no need to send the printer in for service. Here is a link to the roller kit needed for the HP Lasejet 2420 printer:

    Cannot empty the print que print jobs on IMac status is Deleted, except for last line which says "printing", but it is not printing


    This is most likely because an error with the printer is making it impossible to delete the final print job. The most common error is no paper or a paper jam. Look for blinking lights on the printer and any error messages. Feed more paper if necessary. Once you fix the problem, reset the printer or press the blinking button.

    Paper Jam


    hi y'all -

    you share a frustrating problem... error message but no apparent error (jam)! it's one that's common to many models of printers and the result of many different causes.

    I've seen it when I've printed on cheaper paper, or different (lower) grades with odd surface finishes. the sensors get dirty, or the printer/computer 'thinks' there's paper stuck where none exists. I've opened/closed paper trays 2-3 times and rolled feed rollers around multiple times, then closed printer paper drawers only to have the 3rd time of doing the exact same steps be the time it cleared the error message.

    there are often very tiny pieces of paper stuck in weird places in the paper path in printers, too. if you did have a jam before the message started, is every little scrap of the page accounted for? there are also hard to get to places to find paper scraps in larger printers, but I'm going to assume you're all talking about home printers.

    here are a few general HP support links you may find helpful for future paper jam messages for this model of printer.

    this link is for general info for this model:
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?cc=us&dlc=en&product=304535&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

    this link is for general support for this model:
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/solveCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=304535

    here's a link addressing paper jams in general:
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bud09189&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&rule=26353&product=304535

    and here's one on cleaning your printer:
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00016484&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=304535

    hope this helps a little bit for future refs. remember that using good paper helps print quality and lessens printing problems. also, when you take a stuck page out of a printer, doing so gently will help ensure little scraps of paper do not tear off paper edges and get stuck in weird spots. it some times helps to gently, manually, roll the feed rollers a full turn around in the printer, too. patience pays! -JW50

    Error 6A00


    The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

    Solution 1:
    Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

    Solution 2:
    Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

    Solution 3:
    Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.
