SOURCE: Paper jam in HP 4255 office jet all in one printer

Clearing paper jams
Paper jams can be real or false. The unit may report a paper jam even when there is no jammed paper. The solution to a real paper jam or a false paper jam is the same.
CAUTION:
Jammed paper must be removed using the rear access door with the power cord disconnected to avoid mechanical damage. Do not remove jammed paper from the front of the unit.

  1. Turn off the HP product and turn it around so the back of the unit faces you.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the all-in-one. The power cord must be disconnected to allow the paper feed rollers to turn freely.
  3. Locate and open the rear access door by pressing in on the left side tab and then pulling the door toward you.
Figure 2: Removing the rear access door

  1. 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. Click How to Buy on this page to order replacement parts.
  2. From the rear access door opening, remove the jammed paper.
  3. 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.
  4. Reinstall the rear access door.
  5. Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on.
Preventing paper jams
The following information will help prevent paper jams from occurring:
  • Never use paper that is torn or wrinkled.
  • If you are having problems using paper that has already been printed on once (recycling), replace it with new paper.
  • Remove and then reinstall the rear access door. Verify that the access door is fully locked in place. The paper can skew if the rear access door is not locked.
  • Every six months to one year, clean the paper feed rollers with a rag lightly moistened with water. Over time the paper feed rollers accumulate dust and do not function as well as they once did.
  • When printing envelopes, tuck the flap into the envelope and crease the folds before printing.

SOURCE: Printer won't pull paper into printer

Check the "Feed Switch" button on the control panel (below the ON/OFF button) to be sure the green light at the back of the picture is lit. If not, try pushing the button and then printing again. It worked for me and it was so simple!

SOURCE: Supply rec paper tray - what does this mean when the tray is loaded?

OK, I was having a similar problem: Tray full of paper and tray adjusted properly.

Whatever I tried, the printer kept saying load paper.

I went to print menu>properties button (windows XP this is next to the printer name)>paper source tab.

It tuned out that the paper source had been changed from cassette to multi-purpose tray.

Change it back to cassette and you should be golden.

I have a Toshiba estudio162 and its saying clear paper jam. I opened the tray, removed the crumbled paper and closed it.Its still saying Clear Paper Jam. How do i make the red light stop flashing?


The sensor acturator that the paper hits might be broken or out of place so the copier thinks there is paper there when there is not or there might be a small piece of paper that stuck in there holding the sensor acturator up.

Canon printer crumbles up on the left side


look for something stuck in roller by pulling up on the front scan glass- you see the rollers- clean with dry clean cloth- don't use paper towel= too dusty
once the paper is clear, print and while it pulls one side of paper down first, hold it with your fingers and guide it in- do this 3 times and it will get better until it works on its own be patient and it will work- its a 99 dollar printer after all - good luck all

Paper will not feed crumbles on right side will not feed through


Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Grab a flashlight ang take a look into the feeder for any debris or foreign objects that could cause this problem. If none, unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, load some paper (don't overload). Try to print again. If problem continues, please don't hesitate to contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

Once in a while the sheets of paper do get stuck while printing, sometimes I can hear the paper as it crumbled up while passing thru the rollers, what can I do to correct this and or stop it from...


I think the paper is crumbled at the backsite of the printer. This is mostly caused by the exitrollers.These are mounted at the back and top site of the printer. Replacing them sould solve the problem.

Paper is being pulled in on the right side and getting crumbled


1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Paper jam


If it crumbles just before the exit, then the problem is with the fuser unit, there are 4-6 claws/teeth/scrapers that are supposed to help guide the paper out, when they wear out the catch the paper and turn them into accordions. Replace the claws, and check the heat rollers.
