Hello, I don't know what's going on with my 1410 printer. What happened was first, there was a paper jam while I was printing a page. It was the kind where the page really became stuck at the page's halfway point and wouldn't budge. So I was forced to pull it out as gently as I could. Then from that point on, whenever I would print the following pages, the printing would be off center almost as if there was a sphere mode going on. The final printing of a page (last bit) would also start getting louder inside almost like rocking back and forth with the sound of a washing machine. Then the very last bit of the paper would be stuck, but I could gently tug it and it would freely come out. One more thing is that the ink, despite nothing being wrong with the cartridges, produces shadowed effects on some of the document. Not on all the words, just some. Usually whenever there was a rare jam or error, I would get out of it and it would be nothing serious, but now I really don't know what to do at this point and in this weird situation. Thank you!

Re: paper jam and bad printing
Hi Try this, remove all paper and bins. then get alcohol and a clean cloth, clean all rollers and tires. You will get a lot of black dirt and stuff off after cleaning really well try, if it works for a while then yhat was your problem, if it is only temporary then tires will need replacing.

Hello and Welcome to FixYa! Sir, The problem you are telling is surely be the problem of Paper Jam actually their may be small bit paper jam in side the printerThere are some "micro-sensors"that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper, or a lump of dust, inside those sensors, thus "tripping" the sensor and saying you paper jam. To solve it Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feeder If you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects then Turn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air.It will clear the printer jam error and your problem will be solved. I hope you have clear picture in your mind, Don't hesitate to let me know if you have some confusion Sir, Your Rating as Five Stars for this solution and Words of appreciation as Feedback for me will be really esteemed Thank You for taking my service Concerned: Muhammad Uzair Team : FixYa
Wehave all had this one happen. You are printing merrilyaway when all of a suddenyou hear that distinctive crunch of paper gettingeaten by your printer. Youimmediately cancel the print job, leap from yourdesk and flip open the printer."Ugh," you say as you notice the crinkled edgesof paper wrapped around godknows what. Okay, so you have found the problem,but what do you do?
Thebest way to remove a paper jam is to gently pull thepaper in the direction ofthe paper path-with power off, of course. Whateveryou do, don not pull thepaper backwards. You could damage your printer foreverby doing so!

Try the HP website. I just downloaded a tool that fixed my problem which was with a 1410 that worked with a Mac and with XP, but not Vista (although it had in the past). Print jobs showed in the queue, there was no error msg, but wouldn't print, either.
With the HP printers, paper can get jammed in every tiny little place it can find. Even though you pulled the paper out already, you may have left a small piece in there not realizing it. Open up the printer and if you have a can of "air", spray it throughout the inside of the printer cartridge area. I would also remove the printer cartidge(s) to make sure a piece of paper didn't get in there either. Hope this helps!
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.
