There could be a tiny piece of paper blocking the paper path or sensor. See if you can find any.

I have problems with paper jams all of the time and it won't print once it jams. I turned off the printer, unplugged it, plugged it back in and turned the printer back on and it worked. You could try that.

My 1900 printer power is on and flashing slowly and the paper/garbage light is on and not flashing.


Hello.

You most likely have a paper jam or a paper feeding problem. Paper may have jammed in the sheet feeder, manual feed slot, or roll paper slot.

Sheet Feeder or Manual Feed Slot: Press the
paper button to eject any jammed sheets, then open
the printer cover and remove any paper jammed inside.
Press the paper button again to clear the error.

Hope this helps.

Samsung CLP-300 picking up too many pages


Hi
Thanks for using FixYa. Paper jam is a very common problem with the printers.

First of all clean off the rubber piece that pulls the paper into the printer from the tray with rubbing alcohol, and also take a knife to the rubber piece to rough it up to create more traction.

To clear the paper jam problem you need to remove the back roller mechanism to get at paper. If still the problem persists, then check the following to resolve the issue--

1. Please check all interlocks, electrical and signal connections are seated properly.
2. Front cover, back cover and lid are closed properly.
3. Power plug and USB cable are connected.
4. Printer is turned on with switch on the back.
5. Toner signal lights sequenced, with yellow overall led on.
6. There is some noise of paper roller movement.
7. Toner signal lights all out, overall status light turned to red
8. No visible paper in paper tray or anywhere else.
9. No paper in tray---added paper
10. Waste toner container is full or not installed ---empty, installed properly.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Turn off your PC, turn off the printer. Open the printer and check for paper jams, push/pull the ink cartridge carrier left to right to ensure it also isn't jammed.

Only use a small amount of paper (10 sheets). Too much paper can sometimes block the feeder

Turn everything back on, try again.

Some paper got jammed, so I took it out. Now the


hi, Hello... I would like to try my hand at your problem (it sounds familiar and might be solvable). In a case like this, one has to treat a persistent paper jam assiduously: 1. Turn off the printer, and unplug it. Open up the printer completely, by all available hatches etc (-being that it's a laser printer, mind that too much exposure to bright light will spoil the bluish-reddish developer drum, so don't let light onto it more than a minute or so... or less preferably.) 2. Examine the path the paper takes, as it is printed, from the beginning (the paper tray, or sheet feeder, or manual feeder) to the end (the output tray), and all points in between. 3. Wherever there are bits of paper, or fluff, or anything like that, get it out of there! (-and of course, don't touch the drum - but you know that aleady.) 4. If there are any mechanical sensor switches, make sure they are not bent out of position or otherwise 'stuck on'... and if there are any optical sensors you can see, be extra sure there is nothing sticking in them (within the squared-off-U-shape most of them look like that), that would activate them. 5. Can't see anything? Reset your printer, as follows: Turn the printer OFF. (Or if it won't turn off, just) Unplug the printer from the wall or power strip. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. Plug it back in. Turn it on if it didn't turn itself on. Wait for it to initialize. Try printing again.

Paper jammed. pulled out. now yellow light flashes. runs, but no print


check the paper path, specially where the paper is being pickup. it might still have a small peice of paper stuck in the path. pull out the paper tray. can check the paper path in the front of the printer.
use a flash light if you can not see inside.
unplug it printer after you finished. wait 10 sec and plug it back in. that will clear the printer of any remaining print job, and rest the printer.

if this solve your problem, please rate the answer.
thank you

The paper light is flashing


My printer is constantly getting jammed, spitting out blank sheets of paper in between every printed sheet, clicking and snapping, etc.
There are a few places to check for a jam - pull the paper drawer out and check there, take the toner cartridge out and you'll often find a sheet there that you cannot see from any other angle, open the little compartment at the back and check there and the usual paper sticking out of the output just enough to pull it out the rest of the way.
Good luck!
I'll be looking for a new printer this week though. I can't take the constant paper jams and sifting out the blank sheets when I'm printing 500+ statements a month.
Definitely NOT an office friendly machine!

1) take a flash light and inspect the paper path just to make sure there really is nothing there.

2) print a test page from the printer by pressing the big button ( I think) one of the buttons, can't remember I work on so many models

3) take out cart. turn off then on, install cart. and do step 2

Paper jam light is on


Hi! I have the same issue. The only solution I still use: select print from document with no paper in the hp's feeder. Let the printer go on "paper out" message, now put the paper into the feeder and press the print button on the printer. Success!
