HP Laserjet 3050 paper jam

When my laserjet feeds the paper from the tray to begin printing, it "catches" and puts a small tear/crumple in the top middle of the paper then gets jammed.

Re: HP Laserjet 3050 paper jam

The rollers may be worn so it is not getting picked up evenly. Also, be sure that your paper tray in aligned properlyand guides are keeping the paper straight. If both of these seems to be good then there may be something in the paper path.

Hp p4015n keeps jamming

Jamming where? Is paper crumpled up in printer or does printer just stop. Likely the rollers in tray 2 are worn. Try printing from the MP tray, if that works then printer is ok and it will be the feed/sep rollers in tray 2. It is also very important on this model to ensure that you have current firmware installed as older versions of firmware have a bug that will wreck the fuser.

My HP LaserJet 3050 will not grab and feed paper from the paper tray but will print on single fed sheets when fed to the input above the paper tray. What is wrong?

Open the top as if you were going to change ink cartridges. Find all rollers yuou can and wipe them with a t-shirt type material dry. Do not use any liquids unless you can get some rubbing alcohol. Turn the wheels and claen them as best as is posible. Open the paper jam door and do the same to all rollers in site. Any way you can get to the rollers, use it. This should solve your problem. Also try fanning your paper before loading it. Thanks, Dana

I have a HP LaserJet 1320tn, after I changed the cartridge I keep getting paper jams just about where the paper meets the cartridge

Hi if you says that the paper gets jam at the fuser meeting point than i m sure that registration assembly which register the paper with toner cartridge is not working properly this is internal hardware fault.
It may caused due to faulty pickup assembly too.
There is a small **** manual feed tray try to print using manual feed and check if the problem persists then registration assembly is faulty if the it print fine from manual feed than Tray 2 pickup assembly or pickup roller is faulty.

HP laserjet 3050 prints skewed vertically

250-sheet input tray (tray 1)
The input tray holds up to 250 pages of 80 g/m2 or 20 lb paper or fewer pages of heavier media
(25 mm (0.9 inch) or less stack height). Load media with the top forward and the side to be printed
facing down. To prevent jams and skewing, always adjust the side and rear media guides.
NOTE When you add new media, make sure that you remove all of the media from the input
tray and straighten the stack of new media. This helps to prevent multiple sheets of media
from feeding into the all-in-one, which can cause jams.

Hope this helps if not you may have a registration roller problem.

Hp laserjet 4650 crumples leading edge of paper

When you open the paper tray assembly you will see that on each side there is a silver bracket on each end of the paper tray that the paper sit under. You can bend these away from the paper in a sidways just a little and that will fix your problem. The paper is hanging on these plates as it feeds and is bending the paper as it feeds.

HP Laserjet 3050 No paper pickup

If the printer DOES NOT PICKUP paper .
That is a jam also so the places to look are smoth rollers or smoth spots on the rollers.
trays not adjusted properly and if they have it some trays have a coustom/standarsd switch (should be in standard for letter/legal paper
