Dear Navila,

Please ensure that you have check that there is no paper inside the toner and drum area accessible from the front.
Also check that there is no paper stuck below the bottom paper tray which you need to take out the paper tray.

Last you need check the rear cover for any paper visible.
If the problem persist you need to clean up the fuser assembly.

To take it our, you need to do the following:-
1) remove the rear cover
2) remove the side cover
3) remove the top cover
4) remove the black paper guide at the back of the printer
5) remove the white paper guide at the top of the fuser assembly.
6) remove the fuser assembly (2 screws) and the cables white cable on one side and grey cable attaching to the other side of the fuser assembly.
7) Clean the fuser assembly.
8) reinstalled them.

Taking out the paper guide cover is tricky since you need to take them out at a certain angle.

HP LJ 4L paper jam light flashes indicating a peper jam after printer makes a grinding noise. What can be the problem?


You may be right about the worn gear as a factor but I used to have a LJ 4 and whenever it indicated a paper jam it was always right. In some cases, the jam was a tiny scrap of paper deep inside. It took a flashlight and examination of every bit of the paper path to find it

  4. Use a flashlight to thoroughly check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the product.
    CAUTION: Make sure to remove any bits of torn paper from the rollers inside the product. If any torn pieces of paper remain inside the product, more jams are likely to occur. Figure 2: Check the product for bits of torn paperc01979299.gif
  5. While you have the rear access door removed, check the rollers with your fingers. Rollers should roll freely and feel springy. If rollers are missing or do not turn freely, buy a replacement rear access door. Click here to order a replacement part from HP .
  6. Reattach the rear access door. Gently push the door toward the product until it snaps into place.
Step three: Clear the jam from the front of the All-in-One

Try putting Isopropyl alcohol on the feed rollers. These rollers become hard and smooth with time and cause all sorts of paper feed problems. You can find isopropyl alcohol at any drug store(it is rubbing alcohol).
