    the paper jams right under the inkjet.Thus the jet running back and forth quickly starts to tear up the paper.
    I thought it might be debrie in the last roller, but I can't figure out how to open more than the front door to clear out any possible debrie.

    Paper jams are caused by many diffrent componets and situations. More information is definetly needed as to the type and location of the papaerjam. Most paper jams are associated to worn p/u or feed rollers. Debry in th paper path can also contribute to jams. The location of the jam is vital in identifying potential problems within a particular ***'y. Can you give me more information about the model of the machine and the circunstances for the paper jam?

Open the rear access door of the printer which looks like a dark Grey plastic cover and after that is opened you will be able to see black rollers on a steel rod try to clean the rollers moving them upwards towards the ceiling and clean them with a clean moistened cloth. after they are cleaned let them dry for a min. after that the paper jam issue will not be there and ensure that you use a paper with a weight of 20-25 lbs. not more than that..
Happy printing.............

There are mylar guide strips that get bent if paper is misloaded and the drawer is shut. Otherwise you need new paper feed rollers, which are part of the fuser maintenance kit.

Misfeed Indicator light is on - there are no jamed copies present. Other solutions recommended. Thank you

Make sure that there isn't any little piece of paper caught near a sensor. Often when a jam is removed, the operator rips the paper, leaving some if it there inside. If it's near a sensor, you'll get a constant jam indication. Use a flashlight to check for it.

Just installed a maintenance kit in my HP laserjet 5p now it won't work. Followed step by step cd on install. Printer worked before install. Printer keep given me a paper jam code (amber light at top)....

Did the maintenance kit include a fuser? If it did, then check to make sure you didn't break the sensor flag. If it's broken you'll get a constant paper jam indication. It's a movable lever usually where the paper comes out of the fuser.
