SOURCE: Unable to install driver of HP deskjet 3740 on window 7

HP doesn't have the drivers available for windows 7 cause its only in Beta and they won't have it until windows 7 becomes official and available in stores. The only chance would be if you go into the control panel and then add printers. See if in there it has your make and model of your printer. If it doesn't then try a printer that is similar and it might install it. If you still can't get it to install then you'll have to wait for HP to come out with a driver for windows 7.

SOURCE: Samsung paper jams very frustrating

Unplug the unit and remove the paper tray. Flip it over. Be careful of the floppy paper catcher--don't let it break off as you're setting the printer down.
Look towards the back of the unit, and you'll see a dark grey to black rubber tread about 1.25" long, in the center of a shaft. This is the gripper that pulls the paper into the unit. It needs cleaning.
I used VHS tape head cleaner (amazing--I still have a VCR!) but you could use rubbing alcohol. Put a few drops on a Q-Tip and scrub away at all surfaces of the rubber piece. It won't move, rotate, etc. and don't try to make it do so. The swab will get dark. Use the other end of the swab to scrub the piece dry. Pick away any loose cotton.
Turn it back over, plug it in, and it'll probably work. Did for me after much frustration that I thought was due to bad paper or my paper getting weird from humidity. I didn't think it was a roller, because I had hardly ever used the printer, but that may have been the problem...

SOURCE: Paper jam message on HP C4599 when there is no jam

I had the same problem. I called HP and went through the steps they had asked me to go through to fix it. It took about an hour. Nothing worked. They offered me a replacement. I said no, and they offered me a $150 gift card for Staples.

SOURCE: Printer Jam. We have a Kodak Esp 5200 Series.

Try removing the gray cover on the back of the printer to remove the paper.

You might have a small piece of torn paper caught up inside. Try feeding and manually ejecting a new piece of paper through it You might have to take a flashlight and look inside for a bit of paper.

My hp deskjet says there is a paper jam when there is none and will not print


If your printer for any reason reports a paper jam, withput going through the "clearing paper jam" procedure it may not respond to print command. So follow the procedure below:-

Clearing paper jam in a printer is simple almost seven step procedure depending on the printer. Paper jam is the term used to refer to the scenario where your paper fails to come out of the printer during the print process. When you send a document to the printer, normally the printer prints out the document on a paper; then you can pick up your printed copy. When the paper gets stuck in the printer, it is said that paper has jammed in the printer "paper jam".

Even if you are not a technical person, you can conveniently clear paper jams. All you need is to follow the set of procedures outlined below.



Good luck & God bless!

My hp 3740 Printer's power button is blinking and doesn"t print since yesterday.


Blinking power light can mean a jam, out of paper, open cover, or bad usb cable.
Open the covers and look for torn paper and nothng blocking the paper sensor. Check and make sure your USB cable from PC to printer is connected.

My HP Deskjet 3740 had a paper jam. I removed all the paper. Turned the printer and computer on and off several times but the printer still thinks it has a paper jam. I can't get the printer to work at...


You have to check if there is still a piece of paper jammed in the printers rollers/gears. It is inside when u take the lid off. After that you can try to recalibrate your printer from the software which came along with the printer. Try these and give more clarification.
