Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To start with then clean the print head and the area where it feeds the paper. To clean the print head take a hot water towel with the printer unplugged and the cartridges out, clean it till the time you see there is no ink residue on the towel. If still the issue is not resolved then it seems that the feeding unit should be checked along with the sensor. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

HP deskjet 3845 will not feed paper to print. Is the green light suppose to blink? Not sure where paper needs to go to get proper feed


Paper goes in the bottom tray. Take a small stack and place it in the bottom tray and push it in until it stops. It will feed out of this tray, print it and output it to the top tray.

Paper feeding halfway through then stops


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Paper Jam


If it truly stops halfway then it must be obstructed by seomthing. If it only gets a short way past the pick up roller then it may be something else. A little trick for removing obstructions is to fold your paper in half or even a quarter so it is much thicker and stronger and try to feed that through. This can push through any obstructions (assuming they aren't too big). If it still gets stuck see if you can manually turn the main gear found to the side of the carriage and try to push the paper through that way (hence pushing through your obstruction). If your paper feeds through fine doing this then you may have another issue.

Good Luck.
Please rate my advice, good or bad.
