I found if you use generic matte coated paper that it will leave residue on your feed rollers. I will only use Epson or other premium paper. I haven't had the problem since I cleaned the rollers and started using Epson paper.Do not buy "RoyalBrites" matte paper at Sam's Club (it's the worst)!

Paper feed issues when there is no Paper jam. All the rollers move when the printer tries to feed paper. It'll feed about and inch and a half of paper and then stop showing a Paper Jam.


85% of paper jams are caused by worn rollers . The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease. If you plan to keep your printer,

Replace the pick-up and feed rollers.

(hp 4000 printer) A piece of paper is stuck between tray 2 and under just before the toner cartridge. I can lift the flap on top of the paper after removing the toner cartridge, but cannot dislodge the...


Probably the way to go is to remove the toner and tray 2.
lay down a bunch of newspapers on the floor (not a rug). The printer is unplugged at this point.
Turn the printer over and lay it down. Take a sheet of paper and fold it lengthwise in quarters.
Manually feed the folded paper into the paper path from the bottom. Push and pull the paper thru
the paper path. The object is to push the small piece out where you can reach it.

It's not the easiest thing to explain. You always want to go in the direction that the paper moves thru the printer. This is why you start feeding from the bottom.
You know that there is a piece of plastic that is above the feed roller for tray 1 that you can pull out to give you more room.

My printer keeps showing the message "Clear paper jam, then press (check mark), there is no jammed paper in the printer.


If I load my paper at the 'proper' height, it will not feed. If I push the paper down too far, I get a 'paper jam' message. What works for me (even though it's a royal pain) is to feed 1 sheet of paper at a time. Put 1 sheet in so it's level with the top of the feed tray, then gently push it down 3/4 of an inch. That works for me. Good luck.

Paper jamming


You have almost certainly got a foreign object in the paper feed path as there is nothing on the L/H side that should cause an obstruction. First of all turn the printer off & disconnect all cables. Turn the printer upside down and give a good shake, with luck the blockage should fall out. If not then you need to be a bit brave, make sure the print carriage is parked fully right and out of the way. You will need an A4 (approx) sized piece of stiff cardboard such as the backing from an A4 note pad. Insert this into the paper feed locating it between the feed rollers on the R/H side. Then push quite firmly to overcome the spring pressure, when you feel it push through about a half inch stop and open the printer to see what is being pushed through. Push the card fully through and retrieve the foreign object (I have found everything from paperclips, curtain hooks and even a golf tee!). Push the card through fully and out of the printer. Always remove paper jams etc, in the direction of the paper feed whenever possible as pulling anything backwards can dislodge or break the sensor flags.
Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

The paper doesnt feed all the way thru the printer


You should try to delete all piece of paper from printer for the further successful work. The Stranger subjects such as pencils and piece of the paper create the serious obstacles on way of the following of the sheet through your device.

Use the lamp for подсветки, tweezers and knack.

Good luck.

Try feeding a post card or a different kind of paper thru the feeder tray, make sure that it is going in smoothly.
