Question about Printers & Copiers
I have a HPphotosmart 2570 all-in-one series printer I bought in 2005 it collects dust and am frustrated because it printed for about 6 months and quit it always says PAPER JAM and theres not .I've tried everything I thought it seems it doesn't want to bite the paper to pull it in. I hardly used it much! Please help me
SOURCE: What paper jam?
Does the printer even try to pick a piece of paper from the supply tray? If not, then it would appear that a sensor somewhere in the paper path is bad, either mechanically or electronically. Often, these sensors have a lever which touches the paper. If by chance the lever is broken or stuck it won't give a correct message to the logic circuit. If by chance the sensor is electronically defective, it would still give a bad message to the logic, and it would need to be replaced. Logic circuitry could be bad, in which case, replace the printer. With the lowcost printer/all-in-one units these days, it seems fixya has a continual flow of inquiries. Maybe this will give you some help.

If it's the same as my Hl-5250DN, you have to use MP Tray mode. The MP (multi-purpose) tray is cleverly hidden on the front of my printer.

Dell does not make printers. They put their name on Lexmark printers.
I just repaired a 926 which had a paperjam alarm...and no paper jam. The paper sensor microswitch had been bent up onto a paper roller so the printer thought a piece of paper was stuck under it. It was hard to get the little lever off the roller and back, hanging free, without breaking it. This did not happen on its own so I can't fault the printer.
Look for this tiny black plastic lever hanging down right in the middle of the upper paper rollers, just behind where the carts run.

Please onsult this HP support article and follow the steps outlined there to clean the rollers, etc. Frequently this roller cleaning and possibly a reset is all that's required to clear the jam error. (If you have access to compressed air, you can gently blow air throught the printer to clear out paper dust and debris from inside.
Also be sure to follow the instructions in the manual or here to load the paper correctly, fan sheets before loading, and if the problem continues, try flipping the stack of loaded paper upside down and reloading, or try another kind of paper..
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Cannon ip1600 will dislodge a plastic gear below the paper feed area on the right side if you manually pull a sheet of paper from it with out following the power on/off procedure to clear a paper jam. I have fixed these before. The paper sensor is almost never at fault. You have to remove the top cover and the screws holding the carriage then the screws holding the feed mechanism to snap the gears back in place. The printer can be tested with the cover off and works perfectly every time. Just beware this is the expended ink area. I wash out all the old ink with a water hose before disassembly.
