I'm afraid my solution was a very untechnical one - I tore off the damaged pieces of paper that I could reach, then spent a very long time gently pulling on individual pieces of paper, which were at first jammed solid, until at last one "gave", and I was able to withdraw the other pieces.
I'm sure there must be an easier way by dismantling something, but I didn't want to do that without advice.

While printing 2 or 3 lines it shows paper jam message. Can't print even a page!!!

make sure you don't have any small pieces of paper stuck in the printer s.gif s.gif s.gif
Paper jams can be real or false. The unit may report a paper jam when there is not any jammed paper, however, the solution to a real paper jam or a false paper jam is the same. WARNING: Jammed paper must be removed using the rear access door and the power cord must be disconnected or a carriage jam or mechanical damage may occur. Do not remove jammed paper from the front of the unit.
  1. Turn off the HP product and turn it so the back of the unit faces you.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the all-in-one. The power cord must be disconnected to allow the paper feed rollers to turn freely.
  3. Locate and open the rear access door by pressing in on the left side tab and then pulling the door toward you. Figure 1: Removing the rear access door c00108288.jpg Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door.
  4. Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door. Click How to buy on this page to order replacement parts.
  5. From the rear access door opening, remove the jammed paper.
  6. Remove the remaining paper from the paper supply tray. Discard any paper that is damaged or crumpled and then re-stack and reload the paper into the paper supply tray.
  7. Reinstall the rear access door.
  8. Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on. If a carriage stall occurs after clearing the paper jam, resolve the carriage stall.

My psc 1100 series paper jam. How i can fix


You need to switch off and unplug the printer. Now open the rear access door by pressing in on the left side of the access door and then pulling it toward you. Now check for any paper jams. From the rear access door opening, gently pull any jammed paper out.

Note-- All paper jams must be removed by pulling the paper out the back of the all-in-one using the rear access door. Pulling the paper out the front of the all-in-one rotates the paper feed rollers in the wrong direction and can lead to additional problems.

Reattach the rear access door by inserting the two pins on the right of the door into the holes for them, and then pressing in gently but firmly on the left side.

Approx. one third of A4 sheet jammed but can't be seen

Your printer has a rear access door which can be removed by a rotating knob that is recessed . Rotate the knob counter clockwise, and the rear access door will pull out. You should then be able to get at the jammed paper. Reinstall the the access door and you should be good to go.

Paper jams

actually, was an unintended feature(just kidding) I work on these all the time, and you might find that removing the bottom tray helps a bit to release the lower tension, when you open the rear door.
