This unit can also overheat and automatically shuts down when it does; to be thorough--simply unplug, empty the wastebasket, turn upside down, remove any remaining paper from blades, plug back in, and leave it alone for 30-60 minutes. Try again.

It's not an industrial shredder and has a low daily capacity, designed only for small office use.

This has happened to me, and it turned out to be a bit of paper in a sensor level/switch. Turn off the power & have a carefull look for a senser or lever under the actual shredder unit. Is the paper basket empty? If you can, take the shredder out & turn it over (power disconnected) and look for a jammed bit of paper.

Paper jam on my Lexmark Z42


So I assume the computer is coming up with this error, Do you know whether there is paper in the printer or not that is causing this error or does the printer just think there is?

The outside panels should open up and you should see some rollers which may have paper stuck in them. Check for stuck paper or any other object and simply pull it out. Pulling paper out the way it went in won't wreck the printer.

If there isn't any object, you can try resetting the printer by unplugging it and the plugging it back in.

Let me know it neither of the above suggestions work or if you just need some more help or can provide more information on this.

thanks

Did you checked that a the HOLD function is not enabled ?
It is a button on the player, allowing you to "block" the player in case of unintentional buttons pressings.

How do I re-set after a paper jam hp psc 1200?


Verify that the print cartridge door is closed.
The print carriage may be jammed, follow these steps to correct the problem:
1.
Open the print cartridge access door. If the print carriage can move, it should move to center. If the print carriage stays all the way left, unplug the power cord and then plug it back in. This will reset the unit and may allow the print carriage to move from the left.
2.
Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
3.
Remove both print cartridges.
4.
Move the print carriage left and right slightly to verify that the print carriage will move freely. If the print carriage will not move freely, check for obstructions.
5.
Close the print cartridge access door.
6.
Plug the power cord back in.
7.
After the all-in-one initializes, the print cartridge light will flash. Open the access door and install the print cartridges.
8.
Close the print cartridge access door. If the problem returns, remove the print cartridges and wipe the electrical contacts before reinstalling them.
*
Try to make a copy. If the all-in-one pulls in paper but cannot make a copy, there may be a problem with the scanner mechanism. Contact HP for assistance.

If that doesn't work, maybe try this too:


Clearing paper jams
Paper jams can occur for a variety of reasons but are usually paper related. Follow the steps below to clear the paper jam:

1.
Turn off the all-in-one and unplug the power cord. With the power off, the paper feed rollers will turn.
2.
Open the rear access door of the all-in-one by pressing in on the left side of the access door and then pulling it toward you.
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.

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.
*
If under warranty, contact HP to obtain a replacement part.
*
Click How to buy on this page to order replacement parts.
3.
From the rear access door opening, gently pull the jammed paper free.
4.
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.
Do not continue to push the paper in after some resistance is felt. If the paper is pushed in too far, more than one page will feed into the all-in-one at a time.
5.
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.

6.
Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on. Source(s): http://www.castleink.com

As for the cartridge jam try resetting the printer. Open it up, make sure there is not jam. Move the carriage over if necessary, hit OK. Then turn the printer off. Go to your computer and remove any documents from the print queue. Then, with the computer still plugged into the printer, turn the printer on.

HP 6280 printer feeds paper in crooked


Sounds like it needs cleaning:

You will need : 1 can of "compressed air", 1 container of ether rubbing alcohol or some form of Goo-Gone.

1. In short blasts (NOT LONG ONES) blow through the paper path. Open any paper jam access trays before doing this so the bits escape.

2. Using a SMALL amount of Goo-Gone and either a Q-Tip or small dust free cloth, clean all the rubber rollers on the bars. Cheap paper leaves a fine dust and after time will make the wheels very slick.

Doing this every other month can save you from jams and is just a good maintenance plan for your printer.

Also don't use 'cheap paper'.

Good luck! :)
