HP C3150 Printer Continuing Paper Jam Errors

When I try to print print, the paper is pulled in about 4 inches, then stops, one loud click, then the paper moves in just slightly and then another loud click and it stops. After it stops, the printer makes a longer and then a shorter quiet sound (kinda like the sound it makes when scanning). Then the "Check Paper" light flashes, and I get the "Paper Jam" pop-up. When I press the "Cancel" button, this keeps repeating with the paper attempting to be pulled in further, and the paper does move slightly, but is still jammed in the middle of the path. The paper is a gets a little crumpled during this process too.

I have tried to clean the internal part of the printer by opening the front and rear access panels, unplugged the printer, etc. but nothing is working.

Please help.

Thanks,
Miffed in Mansfield

Sometime the ink jet mechnism is out of time or it gets stuck in the lock position. You might want to see if it looks like there crooked in the trays at the end of the printer.

  1. Remove the paper from the paper tray.
  2. Press the Power button and then wait for the jam to clear.
    • If the paper jam cleared, try the print job again.
    • If the paper jam is not resolved, continue.
  3. Remove the rear access door. Press the handle to the right, and then pull out the door.
  4. Remove any paper that is inside the printer by pulling the paper out from the back of the printer.
  5. Replace the rear access door.
  6. If the paper jam cannot be removed from the back of the printer, raise the product cover, carefully remove the jam from the front of the product, and then lower the cover.
  7. Re-load the paper in the In tray. Fanning the paper makes sure that the pages are not stuck together.
  8. Press the Power button ( ) to turn on the product.
  9. Open the document in the application in which it was created.
  10. Click File, Print, Properties, Printing Preferences click Paper/Quality tab.

Uninstall your current C1350 drivers (you should reboot after the uninstall). Then visit HP and download the latest drivers for your operating system. Try printing.

Paper Jam


With printer unplugged, open lid and pull paper out by hand. Depending on where paper is jammed, you may have to lift out toner cartridge first. Be careful when pulling out paper, especially if paper is crumpled up. Sometimes it is easier to pull paper from back of printer as if it were continuing to print, and others it is easier to pull reverse from the front.

Printer will not print 4X6" pictures.


Loading index cards, post cards, and 4 x 6-inch photo paper Remove the paper output tray and all paper from the paper supply tray. Slide a stack of cards into the paper supply tray until they stop. Make sure the print side is face down. Adjust the paper-width guide against the cards, and then slide the paper-length guide in until it stops. Make sure the cards fit within the tray (do not overload it), and then reinstall the paper output tray. Figure 3: Loading a stack of cards 80455c3.jpg
