Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies
I have an HP J6460 that growls during startup, then says there is a paper jam. I can see that the growl is coming from the print head area on the right. Anyone else seen this? Thanks.
If there is a manual feed, try feeding a sheet of paper through.
The problem is that the motor is being told to move the paper, and nothing happens. The growl is the motor/gears attempting to move the paper.
The motor may be dead. If not, then there is SOMETHING jamming up the gears. Clear out the gears and try again.
If that fails, go buy a laser printer based all-in-one (much cheaper per printed page).

Tips for a great answer:
Clearing paper jam in a printer is simple almost seven step
procedure depending on the printer. Paper jam is the term used to refer to the
scenario where your paper fails to come out of the printer during the print
process. When you send a document to the printer, normally the printer prints
out the document on a paper; then you can pick up your printed copy. When the
paper gets stuck in the printer, it is said that paper has jammed in the
printer "paper jam".
Even if you are not a technical person, you can conveniently
clear paper jams. All you need is to follow the set of procedures outlined
Good luck & God bless!
