Hello there
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.

In some cases, not all; the paper feed rollers get dry and slick. If so they tend to feed at times and sometimes stop halfway at times. Look at your rollers.

When I try to make a copy the error code P flashes and paper in unit jams but I can still make copies thru bypass


P error normally indicates that you need to add paper. If there is paper in the cassette and the paper is raising up to the roller then the paper feed rollers are most likely dirty. You can clean the rollers with a cloth and some rubbing alchol. Also make sure you dont have a small peice of paper or something in the paper path causing the paper not to feed. Also listen when you press the prnt/start button and see if you can hear the paper feed clutch turning on then the paper feed rollers turning.

Can't get top feed to sense paper and copy, it will copy from bottom


the reason for this could be that you have run the feed tires and seperation tires bald by only using the upper paper tray. i would suggest getting the feed tires replaced and that should fix the problem. you might also check behind the paper drawer to make sure that a piece of paper did jam and get shoved up behind the drawer and is keeping it from working

I have HP all in one. The feed for fax stopped working. how do I fix it.?


try copying blank pages. If it feeds the paper, then try faxing again. If it does not feed the paper, then open the feeder and clean the rollers and the separator pad. You can use a coffee filter moisten with distilled or bottled water to clean them.

Try copying blank pages again to check if it feeds the paper.

Goodluck!

Copier Jams


Sounds like feed tires are dirty or warn-out. if you can see the rubber piece that feeds the paper, Inspect if it looks dried-out or has imperfections try to clean with rubbing alcohol, use the most lint free cloth as possible. This can also happen when using office depot or staples or CHEAP PAPER These papers carry a lots of paper dust try switching paper. If none of this works the feed tires proberly will need to be replaced contact a local copier company: Chuck The Copier Guy
