Question about HP LaserJet 3055 All-In-One Printer
While scanning a document, the paper jammed in the feeder. Now it is stuck and there is no way to take it out
Please let me know how to get it back and restart the scanning
Here's what's worked for me. Get a flexible plastic mat, cut to paper width, then force it gently through the feeder to push out the paper bits. These plastic mats, sold to be used as cutting board in the kitchen, are very inexpensive.

Just check in the back if there is any part can be removed if you dont find then you have to open the printer(there will be screw or latched)

It sounds to me like the switch that senses when paper is present is blocked or out of position.
The User Manual and such does not provide sufficient detail for me to decipher what type of switch is used. It is either going to be a switch that is depressed to close the circuit when paper is present and is held down somehow now, or it is a proximity sensor and there is dirt or whatever on the sensor that is enough to make it think there is paper there. It should be something that appears to be a tiny window, and it would need to be cleaned with a qtip or 100% cotton cloth and isopropyl alcohol.
You will likely need to remove the ADF feeder cover to obtain full access to the ADF mechanism and find the sensor, since it is most likely recessed in the ADF quite a ways.
The other possibility is that the wire for the sensor has been damaged after a jam or something of that nature.
If you have searched for the sensor and cannot locate it / clear the error, then you will need to have a service tech work on the machine.

Check input paper feeder at top too - easy to miss. Top flips open with a firm (but not excessive) pull, so you can look there.
If you are sure you've opened and looked under every available panel on the printer (there are many!), turn it off and unplug for half a minute. Make sure all panels are back properly in place, but leave out the paper tray (and no paper either in the rear input paper feeder).
Plug in and turn on. Wait for it to finish its start-up sequence - it should complain about no paper.
Check the paper is flat and straight in the paper tray, and no excess room between paper and guides, and put it in again.
Print test page.
How is it now?
