No. But, do this while the power is off. And get a firm grip on the center of the paper and pull with increasing constant pressure until the paper come out. You don't want to risk tearing the paper. Should that happen, open the cover and see if you can't pull it out backwards. In fact, if there is more paper stickng out the top than the front, pull it out from that direction.

After you get the paper out, remove the paper from the feed tray. Turn the printer on and let it go through its startup diagnostic (that's what all the commotion and noise is about when you turn it on.) Once complete, add some paper to the tray and from either the LCD Panel menu options, run the print head alignment test and set the values according to what lines line up exactly and punch those numbers in. The print head alignment test may also be available to you from the printer's program menu tools or from the Start Menu, Printers and when your printer shows up in the box, right click your printer, choose Properties and there may be a set of tools from there that will run the print head alignment test.

That's the long and short of it, Yes, pull it out from above, from the feed tray or from the front, whichever has the most paper exposed. Then run the print head alignment test to reset the alignment.

Hp 2060 printer


Hmm, perhaps some small object, perhaps a paperclip, is caught inside, along the paper path

Paper jam on my Lexmark Z42


So I assume the computer is coming up with this error, Do you know whether there is paper in the printer or not that is causing this error or does the printer just think there is?

The outside panels should open up and you should see some rollers which may have paper stuck in them. Check for stuck paper or any other object and simply pull it out. Pulling paper out the way it went in won't wreck the printer.

If there isn't any object, you can try resetting the printer by unplugging it and the plugging it back in.

Let me know it neither of the above suggestions work or if you just need some more help or can provide more information on this.

thanks

How to load paper in pcrt280


Lift the printer cover. Pull the printer arm up. Sit new roll into holder with shiny side towards you. Pull some paper out to the front of the register then close the printer arm down on the paper. Tear the paper off and replace the cover.

My copier will not pull the paper through to make copies it seems to want to jam -up ,when the paper start through


There are a couple of possible issues here. First, if the unit isn't new, the paper pickup rollers may have picked up 'chaf' from grabbing paper which over time reduces the ability of the rollers to grab paper. The 2nd option is that if the copier is older, the pickup rollers have dried up which reduces their stickyness and ability to grab paper. The 3rd option is that if you live in a very humid climate, the paper may have absorbed humidity, which can keep it from curling in the correct direction as its being pulled through the printer/copier.

Although no paper seems stuck in the printer the display keeps repeating paper blocked


Although you didn't mention what type of printer, most of the time that I have seen this error it has been a paper issue. It can be the tiniest of pieces of paper that has torn off and gotten stuck somewhere inside the printer. It can also be a small piece of a label if you use the sticky labels in your printer.
If you have done everything to clear the paper path, opened the doors, and pulled out the trays, you may want to try spraying some canned air into the printer to see if anything comes loose. The only other way I have been able to fix this issue is to tear apart the printer and find the tiny piece of paper.

I'm having trouble with the Javelin J330i printer. When trying to print cards it doesn't pull them through correctly and then gives an error that the ribbon is broken. I have tried resetting the printer,...


check the feed tires ,the ones that feed the paper/cards into the printer. they maybe slick with paper dust. I recommend taking a cotton dish cloth or rag with some 409 cleaner on it the the feed tires clean all the paper dust off the tires let dry then try to feed card again. sound like the sensor is covered with paper dust, and is giving a false error.

HP 6280 printer feeds paper in crooked


Sounds like it needs cleaning:

You will need : 1 can of "compressed air", 1 container of ether rubbing alcohol or some form of Goo-Gone.

1. In short blasts (NOT LONG ONES) blow through the paper path. Open any paper jam access trays before doing this so the bits escape.

2. Using a SMALL amount of Goo-Gone and either a Q-Tip or small dust free cloth, clean all the rubber rollers on the bars. Cheap paper leaves a fine dust and after time will make the wheels very slick.

Doing this every other month can save you from jams and is just a good maintenance plan for your printer.

Also don't use 'cheap paper'.

Good luck! :)

Paper Jammed. I can not take out the cartridge


Need more info. I.E. model, brand.

Im asuming a printer.

try removing the cover and pulling the paper out, you may need pliers or tweezers to do so. Unplug it first. If its a small home printer it may not come apart easily, there made to last a year and **** out.

If its a large netwrok printer it should have access hatches on the front and back, open these and check for paper and debre.
