Causes of repeated paper jams If paper jams occur repeatedly, one of the following may be causing them: The paper is being pushed in too far. The paper should only be pushed in until the first resistance. Continuing to push the paper in will force the paper up into the paper rollers and will cause the printer to pull in multiple pages. Obstructions in the paper path. Open the all-in-one (front and back) and check for obstructions.

  • Unlocked rear access door. Follow the steps above to install the rear access door correctly (see Figure 3). If this condition is present, the paper will skew in the all-in-one.
  • The paper guides are not positioned against the paper. Adjust the paper length and width guides so they fit snugly against the paper.
  • Incorrect paper. The paper should be flat and smooth with no folded, torn, or rough edges. Papers with a glossy finish and coated papers may not feed into the unit correctly. Paper that has already been printed on once can also cause problems.
  • Partially installed paper tray. The paper tray must be inserted all of the way into the all-in-one.
  • Dirty paper feed rollers. Over time paper fibers and dust will stick to the rollers and should be removed.. Also verify that the rollers on the rear access door are clean and turn freely.
Check Paper light flashes but there isn't a paper related problem The check paper light may also flash if there are other problems. Verify the following conditions:
  • 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 it pulls in paper but cannot make a copy, there may be a problem with the scanner mechanism

    go to the link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/fastF...
    but you sounds as if the paper sensor flag either got stuck or broken when the paper got jammed - you might have to take it to a shop to get an accurate diagnosis, without seeing it I couldn't tell you more than that....but you can still try this
    , take a piece of ~70lb cardstock, and with the POWER OFF, gently push this through the paper-path of the printer - this will help to possibly reset that switch, and will help push anything else out that's in the way that may be blocking it.
    again check the quality and the type of paper you feed it does it comform this could be one

OK, it sounds like a defective printer that needs to be reset.
Unplug the power to it and replug the power back in to see if it stops doing this.

Read over the following paper jam link from hp.com. It might help you get the paper jam indicator to not light up:

Hi, I have hp 1410 printer series and the status says paper jam, however there isnt anymore paper jam, because i pull the paper out already, but still it wont print again and maintains that status, how do...


With the HP printers, paper can get jammed in every tiny little place it can find. Even though you pulled the paper out already, you may have left a small piece in there not realizing it. Open up the printer and if you have a can of "air", spray it throughout the inside of the printer cartridge area. I would also remove the printer cartidge(s) to make sure a piece of paper didn't get in there either. Hope this helps!

Paper jams


Had this problem, too with HP PSC 1610 AIO, paper would pull in part way and stop, then display would indicate: Paper Jam, Clear Jam and Press OK, but there was no paper in the path at all. Found in HP forums that possibly the problem was a broken off piece that may be called the "x-bias" lever which is on a little spring inside the printer just to the left of the carriage bay on the right side of the device. There are two photos of "broken" and "not broken" at this forum site:
http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?threadId=1085918
Since HP does not sell the little part to repair it, I phoned HP and got a good "trade-in, trade-up" price for a better device. Hope this helps someone else find the answer to the constant paper jam issue, as I always appreciate the FixYa forum help from everyone else here, too.
