HI MY DESKJET 9800 WILLNOT FEED A3, IT JAMS ON THE LEFTHAND SIDE EVERY TIME, I HAVE LOOKED TO SEE IF ANYTHING IS OBSTRUCTING DUE TO BEING IN STORAGE FOR A WHILE. A4 FEEDS CORRECTLY, BUT CANNOT FIGURE OUT...


If A4 is ok but A3 jams then I would have to say there IS something hitting the paper. Try another A3 sheet and when it jams, pull the paper back out (after the printer is switched off) very slowly. When its out take a look at the leading edge and you will see a kink in the edge of the paper. Now place the paper back in the input tray and look at where the kink is in relation to the machine. That will tell you exactly where the obstruction is.

I hope you understand what i am trying to say.

When a page is completed the printer does not fully eject the paper and it and the next sheet gets crumpled and spoiled I am using hp deskjet 6122


Make sure the printer paper feed is not blocked with any paper. then check that the rollers are clean.


Also you need to make sure that the paper feed has the correct size settings (Usually a slide across guide labeled from a5-a4/letter)

Envelopes jam in my hp 6940; paper sheets feed fine


I have had varying success with envelopes. Can you feed in the other way round? Sometimes different envelopes perform better. The peel N seal can be very difficult

1: the paper jams when it tries to print


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Paper is jamed


I have a HP697c and sometimes it grabs more than one sheet and gets jammed. I take hold of the trailing edge and pull hard and slowly till it comes back out. Then I remove and straighten the feed pile and try again.

Paper jam error after last page prints


Hi Natoli3,
This could be a mis-match of paper sizes. Example, computer could be sending an A4 page to the printer. The paper size in the could be set to Letter. Ensure the 4 paper sizes match, in the computer - the document and printer driver; in the printer (change in control panel) and paper tray (adjust the physical side and length).

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.

Paper feed problem


1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Good luck...
