Question about HP DeskJet 6122 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Paper jam Can you please give advice on how to clear a paper jam? When I switch on it seems to collect one sheet and not feed it through. Also, I think there may be part of another sheet stuck in the works. The orange arrow on the right keeps flashing - does that just mean it recognises a problem? Thanks for any advice you can give. Regards Seton McNeill

Remove the back cover and look if there's any paper stuck in the feeding mechanism.

PAPER JAM


When the paper goes it on the inside of the printer grabs both side which what feeds it through, if it is not tight enough will cause paper jams, open it back up and check the roller to see if it can be adjusted if it cant then you will need to buy a new one, this usualy happens when it has had too many paper jams forcing the gap to increase in size and not allow the collection of one but many, on single sheets of paper the gap wont be small enough to collect 1 sheet anymore.

Tip

Steps to clear paper jam.


Please perform the below steps.

1. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge inside the all-in-one printer to dissipate before putting your hands or any metal tools inside the chassis.

2.
Pin down the exact location of the jam. The 3 hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and print carriage or between the print carriage and output tray.

3.
Take off the front paper tray if the sheet jammed while still in the front area of the printer. If here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

4.
Pull the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a piece deeper inside the machine.

5.
Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed-tray area and print carriage. Carefully remove the jammed paper.

6.
Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside the printer. You may need to remove the print carriage to get to the jam.

7.
Replace all parts and return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

Printer keeps saying i got a jammed paper there is no jammed paper


There are many places in a printer where a small piece of paper can get stuck. It's not always a sheet of paper. Open all the access panels and check the roller track for pieces of paper. If it is clear, unplug the printer for a few seconds and the plug it back in. This should clear the problem if it was in error. Also check the paper feed for too many sheets stuck together jamming the feed. Before loading paper always "fan" the paper first to avoid sheets being stuck together.

My 1900 printer power is on and flashing slowly and the paper/garbage light is on and not flashing.


Hello.

You most likely have a paper jam or a paper feeding problem. Paper may have jammed in the sheet feeder, manual feed slot, or roll paper slot.

Sheet Feeder or Manual Feed Slot: Press the
paper button to eject any jammed sheets, then open
the printer cover and remove any paper jammed inside.
Press the paper button again to clear the error.

Hope this helps.

There will be some form of error clear code that would need to be entered. It would be something like "holding down the print key and powering on the printer at the same time" The manual may tell you.
There are different combos for different manufacturers.

E-04 paper jam


Hi, my printer did the same and following the instruction of turning it of and clearing any jam didn't work. In the end I forced a sheet of paper into the printer intake at the rear of the machine and turned it off. The printer then took the sheet in about a third of the way. When I switched the printer on the sheet was then drawn through and out the front as if it were printed on. I think the printer has some sensors which must detect a sheet passing through them for it to reset. Hope this works.

LCD Error message: Paper output slot. Thye paper is jammed. clear the paper and press OK.


A jam sensor may be stuck or have something stuck on it, causing the machine to think it is jammed. These sensors are normally located where the paper feeds into the printer, and where the paper exits the printer. Try forcing a sheet of paper through the machine in the direction paper normally. feeds. This may free up the jam sensors.
