Paper jam light on permanently, printer is jammed


Check the following steps for fixing Hp Carriage Jam Error :

Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.

Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.

Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed paper out.

How do I re-set after a paper jam hp psc 1200?


Verify that the print cartridge door is closed.
The print carriage may be jammed, follow these steps to correct the problem:
1.
Open the print cartridge access door. If the print carriage can move, it should move to center. If the print carriage stays all the way left, unplug the power cord and then plug it back in. This will reset the unit and may allow the print carriage to move from the left.
2.
Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
3.
Remove both print cartridges.
4.
Move the print carriage left and right slightly to verify that the print carriage will move freely. If the print carriage will not move freely, check for obstructions.
5.
Close the print cartridge access door.
6.
Plug the power cord back in.
7.
After the all-in-one initializes, the print cartridge light will flash. Open the access door and install the print cartridges.
8.
Close the print cartridge access door. If the problem returns, remove the print cartridges and wipe the electrical contacts before reinstalling them.
*
Try to make a copy. If the all-in-one pulls in paper but cannot make a copy, there may be a problem with the scanner mechanism. Contact HP for assistance.

If that doesn't work, maybe try this too:


Clearing paper jams
Paper jams can occur for a variety of reasons but are usually paper related. Follow the steps below to clear the paper jam:

1.
Turn off the all-in-one and unplug the power cord. With the power off, the paper feed rollers will turn.
2.
Open the rear access door of the all-in-one by pressing in on the left side of the access door and then pulling it toward you.
NOTE: All paper jams must be removed by pulling the paper out the back of the all-in-one using the rear access door. Pulling the paper out the front of the all-in-one rotates the paper feed rollers in the wrong direction and can lead to additional problems.

Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door.
*
If under warranty, contact HP to obtain a replacement part.
*
Click How to buy on this page to order replacement parts.
3.
From the rear access door opening, gently pull the jammed paper free.
4.
Remove the remaining paper from the paper supply tray. Discard any paper that is damaged or crumpled and then re-stack and reload the paper into the paper supply tray.
Do not continue to push the paper in after some resistance is felt. If the paper is pushed in too far, more than one page will feed into the all-in-one at a time.
5.
Reattach the rear access door by inserting the two pins on the right of the door into the holes for them and then pressing in gently but firmly on the left side.

6.
Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on. Source(s): http://www.castleink.com

A light is flashing on my printer and is not working?


It must be Paper Jam or Cartridge Error. First of all, remove the cartridges, make sure that they are working (you can try them on another printer), verify that there's no paper jam. Clean the contact points on the cartridges and on the printer (the point where the cartridges come into contact with the printer) using cotton or soft cleaning materials, dipped in alcohol/acetone/spirit.

Also clean the inner parts of the printer, open the front door as well as the rear door (the door where you clear paper jam), blow out the dust using a blower or similar machines.

Turn on the printer without cartridges installed, again switch Off and turn on again and install the cartridges. If there's no problem with cartridges or no paper jam or no physical/mechanical damage, it'll work fine.

If you need further help and if the problem persists even with new cartridges, let me know.

Good luck.

Cartridge Carrier is Blocked


Check the all-in-one product for paper jams and reset the paper feed motors.
Normally the cause of these errors is a piece of paper or other material in the paper path. Sometimes the paper feed assembly has become unsynchronized. Use the following steps to correct these issues:
1: With the all-in-one turned on and ready, open the ink-cartridge access door. The ink cartridges come to an access point if the carriage can move.
2: Unplug the black power cord from the back of the product. The power plug must be pulled out to resynchronize the paper feed and carriage motors. Simply turning the product off does not work.
3. Remove both ink cartridges and lower the ink cartridge latches, as shown in the figure below, so that they do not catch on the product frame when the product reinitializes. Do not close the ink-cartridge access door at this time.
4: Remove the remaining print media from the paper supply tray. Discard any pieces of media that are damaged.
5. Unlock and remove the rear access door.
6. Being very careful, slowly and gently pull any jammed media out of the product through the rear access door.
7: Make sure that no jammed media remains in the product. Be sure to check inside of the product on the sides to verify that media did crumple into these areas.
8: Reinsert and lock the rear access door. Make sure that the door locks fully. The paper can skew if the rear access door is not fully locked.
9. Close the ink-cartridge access door. 10. Plug the power cord into the back of the product. If the product does not automatically turn on, press ON. Let the product initialize until a front panel message appears, requesting ink cartridges. If the carriage cannot move, remove the power cable again and determine what the carriage is caught on. Manually move the carriage to free it from whatever has blocked, it and then repeat this step. 11: Open the product and reinsert the ink cartridges. 12. Reload the input tray with print media and try printing again. The media must be loaded properly for it to feed correctly. It must be fully inserted into the product but not to the point that it bows from the pressure. 13. The HP all-in-one product will request that an alignment be performed after closing the ink-cartridge access door. Perform the alignment. The HP all-in-one product should be fully functional when the alignment is complete. It might be necessary to repeat the process more than once if the product was completely out of synchronization. Clean the paper rollers If the issue persists after checking the paper path and resetting the all-in-one product, follow these steps: 1. With the product on, open the ink-cartridge access door. The ink cartridges come to an access point if the carriage can move. 2. Unplug the black power cord from the back of the product. With the power cord unplugged, the print carriage (the part that the ink cartridges are in) can be moved. 3. Locate the four small, metal paper rollers (not the rubber rollers) and the carriage rod as shown in the figure below. The carriage rod is the large metal rod that the print carriage rides on. If these rods are not bright and shiny or if they have buildup on them, they should be cleaned. 4. Use a soft, lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water (distilled water preferred) to clean the rollers and the carriage rod. With the power cord unplugged, print carriage should move back and forth freely so that all parts can be cleaned 5. Open the rear access door. Use a soft, lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water (distilled water preferred) to clean the three rollers that are shown in the figure below. Close the rear access door when the cleaning is finished. 6. Close the all-in-one product and reconnect the power cord. Try printing again to see if the issue is corrected Hope this should fix the problem Good luck.............

How to change ink cartridges? Release jammed paper? Paper won't feed!


Sounds like it needs cleaning:

You will need : 1 can of "compressed air", 1 container of ether rubbing alcohol or some form of Goo-Gone.

1. In short blasts (NOT LONG ONES) blow through the paper path. Open any paper jam access trays before doing this so the bits escape.

2. Using a SMALL amount of Goo-Gone and either a Q-Tip or small dust free cloth, clean all the rubber rollers on the bars. Cheap paper leaves a fine dust and after time will make the wheels very slick.

Doing this every other month can save you from jams and is just a good maintenance plan for your printer.

Also don't use 'cheap paper'.

Good luck! :)
