When I go to print something my printer rollers make a terrible noice and my page keeps jamming. Is this something that can be easily fixed (is it worth it) or should I just buy a new one? My printer is the HP C6180. Thanks, Jill Barry
Note with heavy printer usage the rollers will wear out quick. If they do the paper will get stuck and jam. In the meantime you can use W40D on the rollers wipe and dry with a cloth that does not have lint. There is a product I use but not so to customer that fixes these problems but it's not the right solution it's better to replace the parts that are bad.

Its is trick..If its more then two pages print, printer grabs second page even first page in duplex unit., here its confusion. Check with simplex single print, see any paper mismatch error? or printer throwing paper in output bin after successful print?. No.. check fuser out sensor or paper out roller.
Print only two pages matter in duplex, check where paper struck? if paper our roller not grabbing paper back properly in time (slipping while grabbing back) gets jam error.
Always ensure that select proper paper size in printer.Other than this it may major issue, need technical knowledge..& possibilities are less to judge the exact problem..
Keep update us to resolve the issue.
Hi, most paper jams like this are caused by something inside the printer called a "pickup roller" which is a series of rubber tube/grippy things that are responsible for moving the paper through the printer. If these rollers are dirty or worn down, they don't grip the paper properly and end up causing jams. In larger, more expensive printers, they have maintenance kits that you can buy to replace rollers, fusers, and other commonly replaced parts - but it's probably not practical for this model of printer. You may want to try opening the printer as much as you can (without removing screws) and using compressed air and a lightly-damp-with-alcohol cotton-swab to clean the rollers and other parts that touch the paper.
Clean the rollers in the paper path with a moist cloth (NOT WET CLOTH). Keep rolling them and keep cleaning them. Then allow sometime to dry up. Ot if in a hurry then dry them with your hairdryer without the heat.
Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry.
Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print.
Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job.
Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..
