Printer keeps jamming

Hi,

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

You can order replacement parts and install them yourself or have a repair printer tech do it. But to save money you can do it.

http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/HP,Photosmart,C6180-All-in-One,Q8181A,Printer,Parts.aspx

I don't have your part number that's on the unit use the link above and put in the right part number. I used Q8181A

What you need is called: HP Printer Belt or Roller: ASSY-PICK ROLLER

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.

Jam in duplex area


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.

Printer keeps jamming even after clearing jam


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.

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Small bowl
  • Water
  • Lint-free cloth
  • Tweezers
  • printer paper kit
  1. Turn off the Kodak Printer Dock, if it is on.
  2. Pull the paper tray from the printer.
  3. Check the exposed paper slot for paper fragments and/or jammed sheets of paper in the slot. Use tweezers to remove any paper fragments from the paper slot.
  4. Fill a small bowl with one-half cup of cold water. Wear latex gloves to keep your hands from getting wet.
  5. Dip a lint-free cloth in the bowl of water. Wring out excess water.
  6. Wipe the paper-feed rollers located in the paper sloth with the damp cloth. Turn the rollers with the cloth to remove any caked-on debris from the rollers.
  7. Turn the cloth to a clean side. Continue cleaning the rollers until the debris is gone.
  8. Let the paper-feed rollers air dry.
  9. Remove the paper from the paper tray. Fan the paper to keep the sheets from sticking together.
  10. Reload the paper tray with additional paper from a printer paper kit. Place the new paper below any older paper in the paper tray. Do not load more than 30 sheets of paper.
  11. Reinstall the paper tray. Print a test picture to check the Printer Dock.

Paper Jam when printing


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.

Hpdeskjet 5550 had paper jam on page 2 of 3 page document, now dead. Turned power off and on, took cartridge out and put back in, nothing working


Hi,

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..

Always paper jam.


Check to see if something isn't blocking the paper path.

You could try cleaning the feed rollers as well.

Sounds like you may need to replace the pick up rollers on the machine.  Without knowing exactly where the jam error happens during the print process, it's hard to say.
