First make sure that there is no paper left in the printer paper path. If there is DO NOT JUST YANK IT OUT. You could damage the printer. Remove it carefully. Some printers have levers that release the pressure on the paper so it can be easily removed.

Check the paper path and make sure there isn't a flag or sensor out of alignment.

Power down, wait 30 seconds, and power back up to see if it clears.

If it does not pick up the paper at all, it will give you a paper jam error. Your pick up roller is probably dirty or worn out. You can clean it with alcohol or depending on the printer, replace it.

Make sure the paper tray is set correctly. If you have a removable tray, the paper size could have slipped back to a longer paper that what is in there and this will cause the paper jam error as the pickup roller will not be able to pick up the paper.

Printer hp deskjet 840c blinking green and red light why


Depends which red blinking light. I assume the red light is the resume light. The green light is the power light. If the Power and the Resume light are blinking alternately, then you have a paper jam somewhere in the printer. remove the paper jam and you should be fine.

Hello, my Lexmark e120 gives me the sign of paper jam (secondary light sequence: 10 times blinking green light and red light is on). I opened all the doors (rear, top and front) but didn't find any...


This answer may seem elementary, but I would recommend that you change out the paper, and prior to loading the fresh paper, I would recommend that you fan the paper to separate it. I would also recommend that you readjust the paper sizing control as well. Have you tried resetting the machine? You can do so by unplugging it for a few minutes.

Polaroid Paper Jam


I had the same promblem and this is how I solved it. If you have an android, screen shot the picture and crop as you desired. Then Press the share button and click bluetooth (Poloroid Zink) and dial in 6-0-0-0 for the password. Only put that in for the password. If it the password entry doesn't come up, that's okay. Hopefully this helped!

The red light is blinking and it doesn't print.


There are actually some certain meaning on the red light and green light showing different information to user. The summaries are:
1) Green On, Red Off = Printer Ready.
2) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Fast-Flashing = Printer warm up.
3) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Off = Printer off-line.
4) Green Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Processing Data.
5) Green Off, Red On = Cover Opened, Toner Empty or Developer Unit / Drum unit missing.
6) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset.
7) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted.
8) Green Off, Red Off = Printer power is off.
9) Green Very-Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Printer in sleep mode.
10) Green (any condition above), Red Slow-Flashing = Toner low or paper empty.

So what is your printer condition? Better know what is going on your printer so can solve the problem.

HL 2040 paper jam light is blinking but there is no jam. the printer sounds like it dies out everytime it tries to print.


Often the paper jam light will stay on when the *back* paper jam door is not cleared.

Open up the back of your printer. There is a 2nd door behind this door that you can pull open. If there is a paper in this section, pull it out and it should clear your red light.

When clearing paper jams, clear the front first, and then if the red light is still on, you need to check the back hidden door for another piece of paper.
