Be sure and check the printing properties before printing. make sure that you specify the kind and thickness of the paper. This way the printer expects that thickness when printing. Sometimes, glossy paper makes the printer jam easily. Try putting around 25 regular paper on bottom of special paper and see if that helps.

Not all printers can print on all photo paper stock. Check with HP and see if your printer can usethat paper. Sounds like it is too heavy/thick.

Make sure there is no paper stuck inside in the paper. may be there is small piece of paper stuck inside
Just unplug the power and open the cover and remove the toner or cartridges from the printer and manually try to roll the roller and remove the paper.
Hope this helps. Please rate my response.

HP Photosmart C6280 paper jam--won't print (of course), message reads 'add paper to main tray'


Please try this to clear the paper jam

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Photo paper too thick causes jam


You said that the photo paper you used to use was 9 mil, which seems to be well within the product specifications. You don't say the actual size of the photo paper you are using now, just that it is too think. Have a look at the product's specification's page. Scroll down to the Paper Specifications section of the page and see if the paper you are currently using is supported. If not, you'll have to go with thinner paper. Here's the page:
