C5280 printer has loud clacking noise on the right side when ink cartagecome to rest after their travel across the printer. There are a few tiny ink platters of black ink on the inside of the printer mostly behind and around the ink holder basket. The alert notice on the printer continually tells me I have a paper jam. I have gone through all of the teps listed on the HP Support help internet site. I can not clear that paper jam notice. The roller that pulls the paper up for perparation does not react or move at all. The paper remains in a neat stack. I ame determined to save this printer if I can. Will you help me?

This 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.

Check the rails the paper tray sits upon. see if the one on the right side is damaged or dislodged. You didn't say if the noise happened when you printed from the 2nd paper tray.

My Photosmart C4780 makes a loud clacking noise before printing


Has it just started this? Some printer can be a bit noisy. The plastic gears and parts can use a little bit of Silicon Spray, you may want to dab it on with a Q-tip or similar tool.

We have 2 different HP printers with the same problem. When the ink carrier goes all teh way to the right side of the printer they do a loud gear noise for a few seconds. My e-mail is...


That is a necessary process, typical on HP as well as other brands and should not cause any issues. the process tells the system where the heads are located and travel ability.

Check printer 5100 whaat is this problem and how do i fix it


Ink buildup. The B&W and color cartridges abut and shoot ink through a thin metal strip with a tiny ****, visible when opening the unit. The strip rests right up against the cartridges. A grayish strip where you'll see a dark line running across. That's ink. Carefully remove this ink with Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Additionally, the printer head cleaning pads on farthest right side are caked with ink. Manual advises to replace these parts. They can be cleaned with Q-tip and Rubbing alcohol also.

Loud ratchet noise


Have you been using ink cartridges other than store bought? Reason I'm asking is that i used a refill kit, and tried those half price refill places, only to find ink was leaking out when not in use & clogged up the ends where the cartridge moves across. take a flashlight & look at the ends of the track that the cartridges slide across on, you may see a build up of ink, that won't allow the cartridge to travel as far as it needs to go to run properly.
