Question about HP DeskJet 895cse InkJet Printer

Is my printer broken?

My roommate was printing a 18-page slide for a class when it started having problems a little more than 1/2 way through it. the printer started to print the bottom of the last page crooked & shaky looking and the one after that made the printer "jam" up i guess would be the best way to put it? and make a loud screechy noise. i do not know how to get it to stop doing this. i gave the printer a break & tried to print something again & it printed about half a page before it did the same thing. any ideas??

    i dont think theres any paper jammed, its almost like there is a problem with the thing running back & forth to print? but i think the paper seems normal. i will try letting it cool down for longer and try again i guess unless you have any other suggestions

    i have been looking in the top..but all that im finding is that it seems like the little ribbon thing it runs along to print is making the noise. i dont know, its hard to explain..i had a problem with this printer in the fall and tried to fix it but just basically gave up on it and randomly tried it like 2 months later just to see and it worked. so i have no seems like the same problem or at least a similar one but..?

    i am not sure if the back will open, i dont think it does but i cant get to the back too well right now. i will try to look tomorrow, though, but right now i need to work on some other stuff & study..i will just plan to print the paper i need tomorrow in the lab & try again when i get some time tomorrow & write back then. thanks so far tho!

There may be some paper jammed inside..but otherwise you may find that you will need to print a shorter run. turn it off, let it cool down(can be thermally related) the paper unusually thick, by chance?

    well..did you check inside of the printer, to see if anything is stuck between any moving parts? OPen up the top, and look around, and also, from the back, if that will open. Happens with printers a lot.

This printer has a laser cover that you can slide out and clean. What you are describing sounds like there is spilled toner on the lens which causes a constant mark down the page.
From my memory, if you open the front cover, on the right hand side of the printer there is a little window that allows you to slide out the optic cover of the laser. This will have some toner on it so if you just clean it with off with a a soft cloth then I am sure that the problem will be solved.

Paper from Tray doesn't load.

put paper in the upper slot (known as the MP), pull all paper from lower tray, send document to print and see if it prints ok - if it does, the problem may be with the lower print drawer - there is a spring under metal pad that lifts paper so it's grabbed by the printer paper transport. the spring may have broken or become dislodged so separation pad (the metal plate holding paper up) remains down - the transport "thinks" there is no paper

Printing cartridges are getting jammed.

Sounds like the "encoder strip" may be missing or broken. There is a little strip of plastic that runs along the length of the printer between the pulleys that move the printhead. It has lots of tiny little vertical lines on it. If this is missing, the print head does not know where it is on the page and slides wildly back and forth.
You might be able to reattach it if it is not broken.
If not, go buy an X3550 - it is a newer model that can use the same cartridges as the X3350.
