    I've experienced a similar problem on HP printers before. Is this printer under warranty?

It is likely that you have had a jam which damaged the sensor when you removed it (itr if you print lables gunked it up). If it is likely to be gunked up you could strip and clean but to be honest it is probably not worth the time. If this has iccurred following a jam - unless you have another identical machine for spares bin it and get a new one as the parts are difficult to come by and labour will be steep unless you can do it yourself of course

Mt HP Photosmart C6380 keeps wadding up the paper and gets jammed. It then says out of paper and when I clear it and press OK, it crinkles the paper to death. Please tell me how to fix this. There is...


Hp printer paper jam error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

Getting black streaks across documents and pictures


Usual cause is defective bllack cartridge or it needs to be removed and excess ink cleaned from the face of it.

SOMETIMES using too heavy of paper can bend up an touch the bottom of the cartridges as tehy move across to page.

Also a paper jam can brush the cartridge and after that the ink is smeared on the cratridge face and will mark the paper as it moves across.

Using BAD refilled cartridges is a common problem.

Print cartridge cradle is stuck ican't find where it is jammed


This might help . . . Mine finished printing one doc & then made a terrible noise & sent a message to my screen that "print cartridge cradle is stuck." When i opened door, i could see it was stuck off to the left side so left cartridge was obscured. I could not get it to budge, although i kept turning it off, gently pushing & turning it back on. Finally, i got my hand inside & determined that the little door to the left-side cartridge had popped open & was causing it to remain stuck. After some struggles (turn off printer first!) i was able to maneuver it around & close it tight. Now, all is well . . .
