    printer won't scan or print

  • bridgengrx Aug 02, 2008

    I had a "380: Paper Jam / Open Front Cover" message. I opened the front cover and removed the jammed 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper. When I closed the front cover, I still get the same message and the printer won't print. I then repeated the steps again twice, and still the message remains. Is there some sort of internal reset switch that must be reset?

I just completely took apart my front feeder unit because I just didn't believe there was a paper stuck in there. Sure enough, when I got to the bottom (an hour later) there it was- and it wasn't from the paper that was jammed. It must have been floating around in there waiting to get in just the right place to block the little sensor wiggly thing.
After I got it out, I realized there was a MUCH easier solution--- get some heavy paper (I used cardboard folded in half) and manually feed it through the paper feeder in the front assembly by hand. You can see where it should go in (it's where the paper from Tray 1 goes in) and out (it lines up with the belt in the main body of the printer) and there is a large gear on the side you can turn to help you get it through (just turn the gears until you feel the one that grabs your heavy paper.)
As it comes out, it should have your stuck paper with it.

    Okay- sorry about the last Solution I posted for this. I meant for it to go under "Oki 5100c" 380: Paper Jam but it's here now and I don't know how to move it/edit it/delete it.

    In any case, a strong paper in the right spot should clear just about any jam in any printer with a paper feeder that you can't get into. The instructions about "Tray 1" and "the Belt" are specifically for an OKI 5100C

I have use the HP Deskjet D1360 series printer paper jam


Simple and slowly remove the jamm'ed paper. Please be sure to inspect the system in detail (you may need tweezers) for any small pieces of random paper laying around.

After this you should be set please let us know if this issue persists as this would be a sign of other issues.

Thanks

HP deskjet F380 - 'status: paper jam'. There is no paper jam!


Unplug the power cord and while doing that make sure printer is powered on i mean do not turn off the printer using the power button. When you unplug the power cord than press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Than release the power button and connect the power cord and then try to print.

Paper jam in hp deskjet 5900 series. how do i correct?


 Follow these steps to remove a paper jam: 
1. Press the Resume button. 
  If the paper jam does not clear, then go to the next step. 
2. Turn off the printer. 
3. Remove the rear access door. Press the handle to the right, and then pull out the door. 

4. Remove any paper that is inside the printer by pulling it out from the back of the printer. 
  If you are printing labels, verify that a label did not become detached from the label sheet while passing through the printer. 
5. Replace the rear access door securely. 
6. If the paper jam cannot be removed from the back of the printer, raise the printer cover, remove the paper jam from the front of the printer, and then lower the cover. Caution Remove the paper jam carefully as it is possible to damage the 
  printer when removing paper from the front. 
7. Turn on the printer, and then press the Resume button. 
8. Reprint the document. Note If paper jams occur frequently, try using a heavier paper. See the reference guide for paper weight specifications.
