Hi.

Try the following in order:

Disconnect printer power cord.
Turn off computer.
Disconnect computer power cord. (if laptop also remove battery)
Restart first computer than printer.
(this may look stupid, but it drains power that can jam USB ports and cause malfunction).

Clean the metal plate contacts in the ink carriage using cotton and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution.

Try turning off printer and performing a new cartridge installation. Use the HP software cartridge replacement procedure, do not simply swap cartridges.

Disconnect printer USB, reinstall printer software, connect printer back when prompted by setup wizard. Updated software for this model available at Software & Driver Downloads.

If you have spare cartridges, test them, the problem may be caused by a defective cartridge chip. Non original or refurbished cartridges commonly cause similar problems.

My hp officejet j4580 all-in one is having problems feeding the paper. Paper feeds partially then jams.Repeated attempts resulted in same action.


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

It starts printing, then stops, the printer cartrige is jammed


Try emoving the duplex cartridge on the back (return printer to it's original configuration) and try printing. If the printer prints OK, then re-attach the duplexer checking for anything that could interfere with the print cartridge.

If the printer doesn't print, then I suspect something has fell into the printer and is creating enough resistance for the printer to detect and report. Turn the printer off, Remove all the cables from it. Try inverting the printer and gently shake it to see if anything falls out that could be jamming the printer cartridge.

HP Officejet J4580 paper jam


Hi there,

Paper can jam inside the printer for a number of reasons.
  • Open the cover to the printer and look inside to see if there are any pieces of paper or debris that may be blocking the print path.
  • Be sure to unplug the printer before touching anything internal to avoid electric shock. If there is something blocking the print path, remove it, close the printer, and try printing again.
  • You can also check inside the printer to see if any components have come loose.
