When these printer had a jam whatever is stuck in it is usually found deep down in the paper feeder where u can't visibly see it, to be certain nothing is stuck in there you'll need to take it apart, its not difficult as it contain just a few major components but be careful how you take it apart. You'll to take off the two side covers the scanner unit and the top cover then just a take flat screw and slightly raise the white plastic paper guide and see if its anything there.

The orange light flashes three times and it cant print and there's no paper jam


Did you remember to open the door for the paper to exit? Otherwise, if there's no paper jam check the paper path for debris; the sensor(s) might be gunked up.

Hi, there is continous paper jam flashing light indicated at the printer (epson 600). i have checked but i found nothing jammed. i wounder i could be the reason. your support is...


Sorry - no solution, except to perhaps agree with the guy who says throw it out the window. I only wish I wasn't just on the first floor. This thing does more jamming than printing. It claims a jam when there is none. Infuriating.

Three yellow flashes then one green. Printer will not print. Says "check to see if plugged into computer and on." Sometimes says "paper jam" (no jam viseable.


Three flashes says that there is still paper or paper scrap inside. Might be a small scrap, hard to see, or sensor arm damaged when earlier jam removed.

Paper jammed. pulled out. now yellow light flashes. runs, but no print


check the paper path, specially where the paper is being pickup. it might still have a small peice of paper stuck in the path. pull out the paper tray. can check the paper path in the front of the printer.
use a flash light if you can not see inside.
unplug it printer after you finished. wait 10 sec and plug it back in. that will clear the printer of any remaining print job, and rest the printer.

if this solve your problem, please rate the answer.
thank you

Printer paused-unable to read


HI there,

1. First, clean your printer. Get some spray-n-wipe cleaner and a clean cloth and clean the entire inside of the printer. Also ensure your paper isn't dirty. Now print a test page. Does the symptom persist?
2. Remove all jammed paper. Check the paper tray first. Look closely at the paper rollers nearest where the paper exits the printer; this is a common source of jams. If you’re trying to print labels, they will often jam just before exiting the printer.
3. Try to print a test page. Does the printer still jam? If you can find no source of the jamming, check the printer's message display window and refer to your user’s manual to look up the printer error code.

Flashing light


Here is what HP has on the subject of the triangle light flashing:
c00028322.gif 1 - Attention Light 2 - Ready Light 3 - Go Light Figure 2: Printer light key c00028323.gif 1 - Symbol for light off 2 - Symbol for light on 3 - Symbol for light blinking
c00028328.gif Door open, media out, no print cartridge, or media jam

The printer is in an error state that requires operator intervention or help. Check the following:
  • The print cartridge door is completely closed.
  • Media is loaded.
  • The print cartridge is correctly installed in the printer.
  • There is no media jam.

Figure 8: Paper jam c00028328.gif 13.JJ.NT JAM IN TRAY 1

13.JJ.NT JAM IN TRAY X

The Attention LED is blinking. Check paper loading then open and close top cover.

When there is a jam in tray 1, verify the paper is loaded correctly, open and close the top cover. Pressing GO is ignored.

When there is a jam in tray X, verify the paper is loaded correctly, open and close the top cover. Pressing GO is ignored. These are the error explanations for just the flashing triangle light, there are many more, but none for just the flashing triangle.

If the light pattern is different let me know (other lights on as well)
-Hope this helps.
