I had the same problem all you have to do is in the left side there is a black sorta arrow looking piece. You have to get this back in alignment... There is a white wheel right across from it push the the wheel down till you get it to the top where there will be a triangle like cut out.. You then need to push the point of the black arrow like piece to the left of the wheel so it below the wheels level... This is what is causing the smacking noise it is getting caught on this black arrow like piece.

Red light is constantly blinking and when try to print, there is always a paper jam


Every time there is paper jam, the printer knows the job is not completed and hence tries to re-print after the paper is removed and cover is shut.

Clear the print job from computer.
Power off the printer and Clear the paper jam (if any)
I would try to use different tray. The paper pickup roller in one path may be worn out.
eg Sheet feeder or multipurpose tray.
Load paper in new tray
Set the application to use new tray

Ensure you sue the right thickness (gsm) of the paper. Quality of paper is crucial. Too thin; too thick can affect functioning.

Brother 540cn Printer won't print and displays unable to print 50. The photo capture button also flashes


The error code 50 indicates a paper jam condition. Whether there's actually still paper jammed or not, it's sensors are still indicating a jam. Check again for a bit of paper, or there may be a faulty sensor.

I have error light on. Computer won't print. I just bought the printer and it printed just fine twice. Then I turned off the power when I did not use it. When I tried to print again. the error light is...


The error light that is blinking is actually blinking out a error code. In the back of your manual under troubleshooting there should be a list.

On a printer this new about the only error you should see is a paper jam. IF anything else is wrong I'd just put it in the box and take it back. Rarely do you see something fail this new these days. It happens but not that much.

Once you look up the error code you will know what the problem is. It could be a cable unplugged or a paper jam etc. I can;t see it being serious.

I have a paper jam many pieces went through the printer and won't budge. I don't see a way to get to where the paper is stuck


Unplug the printer from the power source to turn it off. Open the printer cover to access the cartridge area. If you see the paper jam, slowly and carefully pull the paper out of the printer. Avoid tearing the paper or avoid leaving torn pieces in the printer. This will cause future paper jams in the printer.
When all is clear, re-plug the printer into the power source. Load some paper and try to print again.

My printer says it has a paper jam, even though the paper jam has been cleared. It won't print. Any ideas?


Hi, Try pulling out the plug for 1 hour and then try again. Pulling the plug may reset the printer.
Good luck.

Paper jam light keeps flashing, but no paper jam can be seen. Won't print .`


Open your printer paper feeder. Then look inside it. There is plastic roll inside it. That is the curlprite. Try to open it. at the last stage you may see a spring that usually is in the plustic rollar's holle. Remove it and re assemble carefully. That's ok.
I think you will be relive from your printer problem.
Thank you.

The red and green lights are flashing continously and it won print


The lights continually flashing indicate a paper jam or the printer being out of ink. Check/clear any paper jam and verify the ink cartidge is set correctly.

Power light flashes and won't let me print - HP3650 no paper jam


Go into your control panel, go to your printer, right click it, then choose "Cancel all print jobs". You may also have to uncheck the "Pause Printing" function.
If all else fails, get the cd. remove the printer and reinstall the software after shutting the printer down and start from scratch just like it was new. If neither of those solve it, go to http://www.hp.com and download your owners manual. There you will find a troubleshooting section that will help walk you through what to do. Hope that helps.

Pull the tray out at the bottom of the printer. This is causing the printer to think it has a paper jam. It is simply the paper feed button.
