Hi there.
First of all pull out the paper jam cover - is behind the printer with a clock-like handle. Pull it out and check for any paper or other objects. If U dont see anything try to manualy rotate the black rubber rollers and check for that noise. Locate it and try to describe what you see.

Error paper jam


Hello Cassandra,
It sounds like you are having phantom paper jams. When the printer starts a print job and tries to pull a piece of paper but can't grab it the printer thinks there is a jam but there really is not. If the paper pickup rollers are worn down they are not able to grab the paper correctly to feed it into the printer which causes this type of error. The rollers are considered user installable and come in a kit with the rollers and the paper separation pad which keeps more than one paper from being pickup up at the same time. Installing the paper feed kit should clear up your paper feed problems. The paper feed kit is available here: http://www.ccl-la.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=342
I hope this helps.

Paper jams constantly, without fail.


Hello, this problem may be able to be fixed. You have started out correctly by looking inside for something out of place and cleaning the rubber rollers that "grip" the paper. Next thing would be to get a higher quality of paper (heavier weight) and see if that fixes the problem. Often times a slightly heavier stock paper will work. Some of the cheapest papers are more slipery and thin. This may not be the solution you are looking for, becuase you have to use more expensive paper, but I have found that on an older inkjet printer it will allow you to print. If this does solve your problem, then you know that its a paper grip problem and you can go in and take some course sandpaper to your rubber wheels to make them grab the paper better. If this doesn't work get a flashlight and look into the paper feed when it is trying to grab the paper to make sure the intake roller is turning correctly and try to manually feed it through there by pushing the top sheet through if possible. It has to be one thing or another and you just have to go through the process of elimination to see what is going wrong with the mechanical process of grabbing the paper and getting it to go through. Most printers have a manual load area where you can feed paper through. If you have that, you can verify that the paper feed channel is unblocked. Often a tiny piece of paper is lodged somewhere that stops a new sheet from making its way through.

Paper feed not move


If I recall the KXP series, it is a track feed printer as well as sheet feed, there should be a lever on the top that you can move to different positions, one position is for feeding paper without the rollers, when the lever is placed in a different position it releases the rollers so the printer can feed the paper. The open position is for installing paper or clearing paper jams. Also if I recall, the lever is on the right side near the roller on the end. When you move the lever, and turn the roller, you fill feel it grab the paper. There is also a switch on the front for line feed and page feed allowing you to tear off a page and then pressing it again will reverse the paper to print position.

Not grabbing paper


Try cleaning the rollers again and fan the paper. When you clean the rollers, use alcohol and a lint free cloth. Don't put too many sheets in the feed tray.

Printer says clear paper jam. There is no paper jam.


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

HP LaserJet wont pick up paper


Try cleaning the feed roller. It may have debris on it, making it slip. Use alcohol on a lint free cloth. Often you'll see on the paper where the roller slipped on the paper. There may be a dark smudge where the roller slipped. Check it out.

Make sure you don't have too much paper inserted, make sure its a little loose, if you push it too thighly it wont come out correctly.

Let me get you instructions for clearing that jam in a moment.

Paper won't feed


Pull out the paper tray and push the paper feed roller towards the machine. Try to turnaround the paper feed roller by hand. Reinsert the paper tray.

Paper will not feed correctly, keeps jamming up.


There IS something stuck in the feed path. If the paper starts to feed and then crinkles on the feed side, there is an object stopping the paper moving forward.

Lay the machine on it's back and take a sheet of very stiff card (A5 size approx) and push it through the paper path in reverse. So start where the paper would normally exit and push the card in. You may need to lift the pinch rollers just behind the print head by hand to aid the card through. Keep the card to the side that would normally crinkle but beware of the paper sensor flag. If you force it you could break it off.

Once you get past the pinch rollers behind the print head, push a little further then start to move the card in and out but along the length of the rollers. You should find that sufficient to push out whatever is in the path and having the machine on it's back will help it fall clear of the feed mechanism.

If it does not fall out using this method you will have to remove the covers and try to remove the ASF to get at the object.
