Removed paper tray. Cleaned pick up rollers etc. Dust and dirt may have stopped the tray from reaching it's operating position. The printer now takes up paper.

Paper won't feed and light continues to blink. hp deskjet 1000 Acts like either there is no paper or it takes it and it binds up in the printer and jams.

85% of paper jams are caused by worn rollers . The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease.

My hp photosmart c7250 will not clear printing jam. after reseting, the rollers keep running until it times out then displays a print jam.

Sounds more like an out of paper response rather than a jamb. Make sure the pickup roller can actually catch the paper. Use a polymit to roughen the rollers slightly in the slot where the paper is contained. If you take the paper out and look down the slide that holds the paper you will see two or sometimes 3 rollers They can become shiny and fail to grab the paper. Make sure you use proper printing paper and not photocopy paper as this is the stuff that has resinous coating that causes rollers to become shiny.

To also ensure that there is not a tiny piece of paper covering the detection eye for paper jamb use a piece of stiff card and run it through the paper path with a little assistance from you pushing it while the roller turns. This will often remove any tiny bits of paper or waxy substance from the eye.

Paper jam

The problem mite be dirty rollers that feed the paper, try cleaning with alcohol or worn out replace. Problem is the paper roller is miss feeding not taking up the paper instead of hitting something in the machine paper jam.

My hp color laserjet 4600dn keeps jamming, even with a single sheet being feed into it.

The feed rollers might have some paper or parts of a label stuck to it. You might be able to get it out without disassembling it, but sometimes you have to take them apart to get to the problem. Look carefully in it, try to spot any paper or item that might be causing one of the feed rollers to bind the paper up.

Feed roller rotates but paper does not move (feed).... I cleaned the roller


Sometimes this can be caused by worn out tyres on the rollers. Like car tyres they wear out over time & become 'slippery' & fail to drag the paper the way they should.

Replacement tyres can be ordered from HP for your specific printer.

It may also be the cogs that turn the rollers, or perhaps the spring load on the paper tray (the part that raises the paper to the rollers). If it's either of those problems, I can only suggest taking it to a printer repair agent or if it's still under warranty, give HP customer support a call.

Hope this helps :)

Printer unevenly takes in paper?

Check the paper try and make sure the plastic sliders are snug against the paper. The sliders sometimes get pushed around when new paper is put in and gives the paper room to wiggle around. Other possible issues would be dirty/worn rollers, or bad motor.

Hp 896 cse. The paper feed is not working.

Can you get to the pick up roller? is it putting out paper at all? Clean the roller with a cotton swab and rubbing or denatured alcohol. Sometimes paper dust will build up on the roller and it cant grab the paper. All check and see that the roller is trying to turn. RUle out mechanical failure.

Paper feeder

Hi, most printers usually have rubber pickup rollers that get worn out with time. Usually cleaning the rollers with rubbing alcohol will restore the rollers for a while. Sometimes getting to the rollers takes a long Q-tip but cleaning with a rag is best. Good luck.
