Re: Printer Jam

Its probably stuck wrapped around the fuser.

It WAS glossy Laser paper and NOT glossy Inkjet paper wasn't it ??

Glossy Inkjet paper could cause a proplem like this, as inkjet paper just isnt made to stand the temperature of a fuser (the fuser cover reaches a temp of just under 180 Celcius) and it melts !!!

Paper thickness error

From page 88 of the User Guide.

For your printer you can use the following types of paper and other media.

??  Size

• Standard paper: From Legal size (8.5 x 14.0 in.) to A5 size (5.83 x 8.27 in.)
• Non-standard paper: From 3.54 x 4.72 in. to 8.5 x 23.0 in.
• Others: Envelopes (US Com. #10 and European DL)

Important ?ž₪ Do not use the following types of paper. Using such paper will not only produce unsatisfactory results, but can also cause the printer to jam or malfunction.

• Folded, curled or wrinkled paper
• Wet paper
• Paper that is too thin (less than 17 lb.)
Paper that is too thick* (more than 28 lb.)
• Picture postcards
• Postcards with an affixed photo or sticker
• Envelopes with a double flap
• Sealed envelopes
• Envelopes with an embossed or treated surface
• Paper with holes (such as loose-leaf paper)
* non-Canon branded paper

??  Weight

17 to 28 lb.

Do not use paper heavier than this (except for supported Canon-brand media), as it
could jam in the printer.
??  Types

The following types of media can be used. For more information about the media and the
printing methods, refer to the specific sections.

Plain paper: Refer to the printed Quick Start Guide.
?ž¡ Envelopes
?ž¡ High Resolution Paper HR-101N
?ž¡ Glossy Photo Paper GP-301/GP-301N
?ž¡ High Gloss Photo Film HG-201
?ž¡ Glossy Photo Cards FM-101
?ž¡ Photo Paper Pro PR-101
?ž¡ Photo Paper Pro PC-101S
?ž¡ Transparencies CF-102
?ž¡ T-Shirt Transfers TR-201
?ž¡ Banner Paper

If you are receiving a paper thickness error (are there lights flashing?) is the thickness greater than 28 lbs? You can refer to the User's Guide beginning on page 140 for infomration on error light patterns.

Have you set the Paper Thickness Lever properly? Looking at the printer from the front; To the left for normal paper; To the right for thicker product (e.g. envelopes, t-shirt transfers, banner paper).

Your glossy paper is too smooth for the rubber rollers to grab it.
You need to wet the rubber rollers. Ever licked your finger in order to turn a page in a book? Same concept solution here.

Remove the paper tray. Take a look inside the space created where the tray was, and locate the rubber rollers. Lick your fingers, and use them to moisten the rubber rollers.

Reset printer and print again. Or try "un-smooth" the paper where the rollers grab it.

Hp LaserJet 4100 printer says its out of paper which is not the case, could someone assist me and figure what may be causes this problem? Thanks in Advance

Hi there,

Paper jams can occur in the following areas
1 Top cover and toner cartridge area
2 Optional envelope feeder
3 Input tray areas
4 Optional duplexer
5 Output areas (top and rear)
6 Fuser area

Solving repeated paper jams
* Check all the paper jam locations. A piece of paper might be stuck somewhere in the printer. Even a small torn piece of paper in the printer path can cause repeated jams.
* If using a duplexer, check all areas (including under the duplexer).
* Check that paper is correctly loaded in the trays, that all three adjustments have been made, and that the trays are not overfilled. Make sure paper is under the front and back tabs.
* Check that all trays and paper handling accessories are completely inserted into the printer. (If a tray is opened during a print job, this might cause a paper jam.)
* Check that all covers and doors are closed. (If a cover or door is opened during a print job, this might cause a paper jam.)
* Try printing to a different output bin.
* The sheets might be sticking together. Try bending the stack to separate each sheet. Do not fan the stack.
* If you are printing from tray 1, try reducing the size of the stack.
* If printing from the envelope feeder, make sure it is loaded correctly, pushing the bottom envelopes in slightly farther than the top envelopes.
* If you are printing small sizes, feed paper short edge first.
* Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also try rotating the paper 180°.
* Check the characteristics of the media you are using. Use only paper that meets HP specifications (see the online user guide for paper specifications). Try using different paper to see if the problem goes away. Do not use curled, deformed, damaged, or
irregular paper.
* Avoid using paper that has already been used in a printer or copier.
* Do not print on both sides of envelopes or transparencies.
* Print only on full sheets of labels and do not print on both sides of label sheets.
* Check that the power supplied to the printer is steady and meets printer specifications (see the online user guide for printer specifications).
* Clean the printer (see the online user guide procedures).

Hope this helps.

Have a good day.

    Hi there,

    Well first of all you can try to reset your printer -
    Turn off printer

    Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power'
    buttons for about 10 seconds.

    A message will appear on the screen.
    power off and back on for reset.

    Try the following steps to clear any jam -

    1. Clear any loose paper from the paper tray. This will help you locate the jam. You will find it either in front, near the paper tray, or in the rear.
    2. To clear a paper jam near the paper tray, grip the paper and pull it firmly but gently from the printer. If you find a stack of papers jammed, grab from the middle of the stack and pull.
    3. For a rear jam, remove the back of the printer. When you find a free edge on the paper, grip it firmly and pull it out. 
    4. Replace the back cover. Press the "Resume" button or turn off the printer, and then turn it back on. Your settings should reset. 
    5. Try printing another document.

    Good Luck!!
