Why does my printer grab several pages of paper at once instead of one?

The printer when it was cleaned for paper jam might have damaged paper rollers which picks the paper as the gap is increased due to paper pull.You can replace rollers then problem will be solved .

DCP J315W unable to print 50

Try forcing a piece of thin cardboard into the paperfeed. (like a kleenex box, only the size of a piece of paper) look inside, and once your can reach it, get hold of it and pull it through. (do this with printer unplugged)You might be surprised what comes out with it. I had a little piece of paper jammed in there and the cardboard forced it out.

Error code 200.16 paper jam check tray 1, inner door. But there is no paper jam there.

200.16 means the input sensor, it is in the paperfeed assy on the bottom of the printer, is activated. Check if there no paper or pieces of paper in the input sensor or if the input sensor is stuck in "open" position.

Paper jam in HP deskjet 380 series

I just completely took apart my front feeder unit because I just didn't believe there was a paper stuck in there. Sure enough, when I got to the bottom (an hour later) there it was- and it wasn't from the paper that was jammed. It must have been floating around in there waiting to get in just the right place to block the little sensor wiggly thing.
After I got it out, I realized there was a MUCH easier solution--- get some heavy paper (I used cardboard folded in half) and manually feed it through the paper feeder in the front assembly by hand. You can see where it should go in (it's where the paper from Tray 1 goes in) and out (it lines up with the belt in the main body of the printer) and there is a large gear on the side you can turn to help you get it through (just turn the gears until you feel the one that grabs your heavy paper.)
As it comes out, it should have your stuck paper with it.

Printer problem

Did the paper jam clear completely? Look for a small piece of paper stuck somewher inside the paperfeed track that's setting off the sensor. Clear that and you should be fine
