Question about HP LaserJet 2430 Printer
If the paper jam error first occurs just after you have replaced the toner cartridge (as it did for me), carefully look inside (with toner cartridge removed) near the rear at the fuser and there may be a black piece of paper sticking out and/or curled up against the back. I needed a flashlight to see it but still wasn't sure until I felt around and found it. It was the protective sleeve that was around the drum in the toner and when I replaced the toner I missed it. When I first powered up the printer, the sleeve got fed partially into the fuser and the tail curled up against the back, making it practically invisible. Also, with that jam, the printer made no motor or gear train noise at power on so it almost had me convinced that the motor was bad. After removing the black piece of paper, the printer initialized normally.

Place a few papers in the tray.
Open up the top, pull out the main (green handle) thingy.
In the very bottom you will see a bar with a single large round rubber wheel in the middle, and white gears on both ends of the bar.
Manually turn the right side gear toward you.
As you do this, you will see the paper lift up and as the rubber wheel turns you will see that it has a notch on the bottom side.
Turn the gear, and watch the rubber wheel until the notch on the rubber wheel is facing up and away from you (and the paper is fully engaged).
Then put the green-handle thingy back in, close the printer, and it should work.
Apparently this resets something. I have done it a number of times - usually after a paper jam.

PAPER JAM [LOCATION] Media is jammed at the specified location (and possibly at other locations). If the message persists after all jams have been cleared, a sensor or sensor lever might be stuck or broken. For all jam messages, do the following: 1. Remove jammed print media from the specified location. Check the entire paper path for other pieces of media in the path. 2. Open and close the top cover to clear the message. 3. Check sensors and flags in the paper path for proper operation.
