Hello there Try this may push it out for you.
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Hi......................
How to Clear a Paper Jam on an HP Inkjet Printer?????
Paper jams are among the most common problem with HP inkjet printers. Follow these instructions to learn how to clear a paper jam so you can get back to work.

Instructions Things You'll Need
  • HP inkjet printer
    • 1 Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer before you begin. With the power disconnected, you will protect yourself from being shocked. This is an important step when you are fixing any type of electronic device.
    • 2 Move your printer so that you'll have access the back panel. Unhinge the back access panel of the printer.
    • 3 Look for paper through the opened back panel. Remove any paper you find jammed.
    • 4 Close the back access panel. Make sure that it latches into place and looks the same way it did before you opened it.
