Question about HP Photosmart C6280 Printer

1 Answer

My HP Photosmart C6280 printer will not print. Display indicates to clear jam, but there is no visible paper jam. Goes into printing mode followed by a series of clicks and display again indicates "paper jam". I looked in front and back of printer with flashlight to see if there were any pieces of paper lodged, but could not find anything. Please advise. Thank you, Joe

Why do i have a false jam reading?


I understand that you're receiving what you believe to be a 'false' paper jam on your HP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One Printer. I would like to work with you today with resolving this issue. Paper jams can be real or false. The product might report a paper jam even when there is no jammed paper. A false paper jam may also be the result of having a bad paper jam at a point in time and that bad jam causing a hardware issue to the paper sensor or rollers. I am going to provide you with some additional troubleshooting steps that apply to both real and false paper jams. You did state that you already checked the paper pathway inside the printer and failed to find any evidence of paper being stuck, but please run the step-by-step troubleshooting below, even if you have already run some of the steps.

Here are the steps for clearing the path:

HP Photosmart C6280 Will not feed paper correctly


Please onsult this HP support article and follow the steps outlined there to clean the rollers, etc. Frequently this roller cleaning and possibly a reset is all that's required to clear the jam error. (If you have access to compressed air, you can gently blow air throught the printer to clear out paper dust and debris from inside.
Also be sure to follow the instructions in the manual or here to load the paper correctly, fan sheets before loading, and if the problem continues, try flipping the stack of loaded paper upside down and reloading, or try another kind of paper..

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Paper Jam


Remove all the paper from the paper tray so that nothing gets sucked up in there while you're working. Hit the cancel button a few times until the screen clears itself and goes back to the "Print", "Copy", "Scan" option screen.

On your computer, if the printer option screen is up (depending on what kind of computer you have, a small screen might pop up to tell you the print progress), hit cancel or clear on any of the lines that say "Paper jam", if there are any.

The next time you print something, only put as many pieces of paper in the feed as you need to print. This should eliminate a lot of the chance of actually getting a paper jam.

Please respond again if this didn't help. I'm not sitting in front of my own computer right now, so I might not be following the same steps that I usually take.
